Review: Freshlook Colorblends in Amethyst

I've been wearing contact lens for ages and I'm proud to say this gonna be my first blog review on contact lens. (I know I should do this earlier, but hey but late than never) Remember the Pretty, Sexy, Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest I mentioned in my previous post, today I gonna share with you on how Freshlook Colorblends Contact Lens transform my eyes into a pretty, sexy and beautiful eyes like Rainie Yang??
Rainie Yang - Famous Taiwanese Singer & Actor is the spokeperson of Freshlook. Have anyone of you watch her drama with Joseph on 'Drunken To Love'. That's one of the romantic drama I really really like!! =p
They say:

Freshlook Colorblends by CIBA Vision use advanced color technology to blend three colors on one lens. Available in 9 colors. Each box contains monthly disposable colored lenses.

Content: 45% phemfilcon A (with UV absorbing chromophores), 55% water, in borate buffered saline containing 0.005% Poloxamer 
Base Curve: 8.6
Diameter: 14.5




Packaging:

This contact lens come in a blister packaging which you need to pull up the foil and unseal the packaging. Be gentle while opening the foil or the sterile water spill out leaving only your lens. Lol!! I guess that's only applies to me (I'm more rough in this sense) But comparing it to the metal seal (GEO, EOS Lens) that increase your chances of hand injury, this is much better though.

Color:

It's available in 12 different colors. For dark eyes color like me, a darker or natural color (nearer to your hair color) will definitely look better. I've chosen the color Amethyst as I want to have a purple eyes! *lol*

How they look:

Amethyst is not very opaque to my dark eyes and i's doesn't come with any enlargement effect. It's a trend now for everyone of us to get a lens with enlargement effect. Bigger eyes win? =p I love this color very much but you definitely couldn't wear this without any makeup on. It just look very weird on me.


My say:

The lens itself is very smooth and soft that it can be easily clean with solution without tearing it of. (I teared my lens for quite a couple of time previously). The first time I was wearing them, I got a bit of blurry vision that I couldn't see my surrounding cleary. But it settled in about 10 minutes and my vision got cleared of. But that only applies to my first time insertion because after that I don't encountered it anymore.




I am actually very amazed about this lens on the comfort. To be honest, I am kinda skeptical that this colored lens will stay on my eyes more than 6 hours after some bad experience on certain lens. But this lens could stay on my eyes for 8 - 10 hours without any irritation or uncomfortable feeling. I started wearing them to work from 8am till 10pm and it doesn't really bothers me till about 8pm (after 12 hours) my eyes started to feel a bit dry and uncomfortable. A two drops of eye drops can easilly solve that issue. (But pls do not follow my steps ok? It's not recommended!)

One thing about the lens, I kinda had a hard time to make sure that it isn’t inside-out. The correct steps to wear a contact lens before insertion is to make sure that your lens isn't inside-out like picture shown below.

After so, I had another hard time inserting the lens into my eyeball because the lens just doesn't 'suck' and 'stay' to my eyeball. Instead, it stuck at the position where I placed my lens and I can see eyeball still rolling around without the lens. To be honest, this is one of reason that irritates me especially when I need to insert my contact lens fast early in the morning before work.

Overall, it was a good colored monthly lens. I really love how comfortable it can be despite the issue of inserting them. The color of Amethyst is very beautiful and I believe it suits all skintone colors. Here's a simple FOTD I've done with Freshlook Colorblends in Amethyst. How do you think it flares with my Summer/Spring look eyeshadow color? ^_^
