I have been a contact lens user for more than a decade now. Normally, I wear the soft clear ones.
I am loyal to the Air Optix brand as their lens are breathable and non drying therefore their lenses are very comfy that I sometimes forget I am wearing contacts! They are also perfect for my sensitive eyes. No joke.
So, when colored contact lenses (graded ones) came out in the market, I was very much tempted to try them out… but due to my fear of eye infection/s (yes, I learned my lesson the hard way) and questionable (Korean contact lenses) brands, I opted not to and go on wearing my usual clear contact lenses.
But not today. Because the kind folks of Air Optix Philippines sent me this for trial!
I was going to keep this to use on my prenup shoot come September, But I got impatient and wanted to wear them. Right away.
Or should I say right after I disposed last month’s contact lenses.
Unlike the usual reviews I see on the internet where bloggers wear colored lenses just because, I wear contact lenses because I need them (badly) and also because I am vain. hahahahaha! At least I am honest!
The box contains two contact lenses that are individually wrapped.
They gave me Pure hazel to try.
I was told that it is a subtle color. How does it look like you say?
It looks like this! Pretty right?! And that is my contact lens case look like that my friends. It is because I use hydrogen peroxide-based lens care solution to clean, disinfect and store my contact lenses. Rather that the usual contact lens solution.
I told you I have sensitive eyes and a history of eye infection. That is why I am wary of anything that concerns my eyes.
When worn the lenses tend to blend in. It is very natural looking.
Cloudy vision due to the colored lens? Nope. Comfort for a whole day of wear? yes! I wore my lenses by 10 in the morning and took them off by 9 in the evening. Noticeable color? Not really eye catching but its there.
Like what they said, it is subtle, I like the fact that it does not make me look artificial.
In this photo the color is much more noticeable. Kind of gives definition to the eyes.
It has that ooomph, I am not wearing any make up in these photos but you can see that my eyes brightened up my face!
Will definitely go get another pair of this one when September comes along. My favorite lenses just got trendier! Yey!
