I received a pair of Freshlook lenses in my chosen colour (green) and finally overcame my fear! They come in a small box, with details of diameter size, base curve, lens strength etc. The lenses themselves are in individual plastic pods with a thick foil seal. It should be noted that the pods ARE NOT resealable - so if you plan to wear these for the month that they last for, buy lens cases and solution.
Yes! Miraculously, they did. The effect was pretty subtle in standard lighting and gave my eyes more of a hazel look than a straight up green. Again, flash would have you believe these contacts give an obvious colour, but on my dark eyes, they didn't. Still, they were pretty and quite natural looking.
Since this was my first time wearing contacts, popping them in got a bit annoying! I kept blinking them out and having to rinse them with lens solution - so if you're a first timer, definitely have some solution to hand. I found the 'look up, blink and look down' method useless - much easier just to place them where they ought to be in the first place. In future, I'll definitely do lower liner/ mascara AFTER lenses, too.
These Freshlook Colours lenses were really comfortable, which surprised me! I expected lenses to feel weird, but after a few hours I forgot I was actually wearing them. If you're looking for comfy, natural looking lenses, I'd definitely give Freshlook...well...a look.
Available from Getlenses in a range of colours and strengths.
