I am no expert in contact lenses, and I hadn’t thought much about them until I keep seeing everyone around me is wearing it. Be it the black enlarging ones, the natural brown ones, or coloured ones like blue, green grey and whatever colour there is, people are wearing them like how they put on clothes everyday!
Seriously, that’s what i think!
And I never really did wanted to wear them because of a few reason:
- I got NO knowledge about them
- I am worried of harming my eyes
- Lenses are EXPENSIVE
- and last but not least, it’s EXPENSIVE to keep using them.
But that’s what i thought initially, for most parts.
I told myself last year to try something new on the cosmetic department for this year, and I figure wearing lenses would be a good one. I’ve seen how good Connie look with lenses on, and I’ve seen eye makeup looking very much better with the right colored lenses and yeah, it’s kinda fun too. So i decided to take the plunge.
But hey, I don’t know what brand to start looking for and I got no idea which seller provide good services, so since the eye is such a fragile area and it’s just a test for myself to see if I like them enough for long term usage, I told myself what the heck, just get some establish brand that’s out in the market.
And here we have FreshKon Mosaic Cosmetic Contact Lenses.
On to what I think!
I wore this lense for Velvet Blue’s FOTD, and have been using them again last weekend.
As a first time wearer, I didn’t find it difficult to wear them. Wearing them on my right eye was a breeze, while wearing them on the left eye requires some effort, but it was no biggie. LOL. While having the lenses on, everything is clear and bright, but there’s a slight blurriness at the outer rim of my eyes. I think it’s because my eyes are not quite adjusted to wearing lenses, but after a while, say around 30 mins to 1 hour, the blurriness was gone. I hope I am making sense here.
I wore them for about 4 to 5 hours, and notice a close to zero discomfort. I won’t say it’s totally comfortable, as my head keep telling me I have something in eyes so I must be careful. Haha. My mind loves to play games!
I was worried the lenses would be drying, but it wasn’t. It didn’t make my eyes dry so I suppose the claim of having superior wettability and high water content (55%) allows ultimate comfort for daily wear is true.
This lense is supposedly to give users a subtle colour yet vivid-effect natural looking eyes, which I think it delivers. Like what the girls had said on the FOTD post, the effect is quite natural, and even though it’s blue, it’s not too striking and neither it’s scary. I definitely do not want to look like Asian pretending to have striking blue eyes which would scared most people away!
Anyway, here’s a comparison picture before and after wearing the lense.

Sorry for the blur “before” picture, not sure why it turn out that way when I use the same settings for the “after” picture >_<
I did no photoshopping or put on any makeup, not even concealer. All I did was curl my lashes, put on mascara and then wear the lense. The BF told me my eyes look bigger when I put on the cosmetic lenses. And the fact that he didn’t say it’s ugly or striking or scary, means it’s natural enough on me.
Means eye makeup time can be reduced to half because all I need is concealer, curler, mascara and lenses to look good! Weee!
So am I using cosmetic lenses for good? Not sure, but my first time experience is pleasing enough to make me wanna use it more often!
