As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m one of the participants for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest and here is my second pair which is Freshlook Colorblends in Gray to review. My first pair was Amethyst, review available here.
As always blister pack are much more user friendly when it comes to opening it rather than vial pack where you have to open the metal seal which is much more prone to injuring yourself. There’s quite a strong sterile scent when opening it but the scent doesn’t stay after a minute or two. These lenses are 45% phemfilcon A (with UV absorbing chromophores), 55% water, in borate buffered saline containing 0.005% Poloxamer and they are monthly disposable contact lens.
I usually soak my lenses the night before with my saline solution, just to allow it to adjust to my suitable saline solution. These are 14.5 by diameter which doesn’t have much of a big eye effect. These lenses are meant to create a natural colored eyes and because it is a three tone lenses, it makes it much more natural.
Here is a before and after. How the lens turn out on your eyes is depending on your iris color and I have dark brown . For the image above, I’m using artificial light . I reckon gray is much more opaque than amethyst and they both looked really natural.
If you are a first timer in using this range of contact lens, I recommend trying this shade first if you’re unsure which color to choose from. Gray is one of the color that flatters most skin tones. I was wearing this lenses in one of my makeup tutorial, Ooh La Lace Prom and please check it out if you’re interested in this look from all the images available in this post. Gray is very alluring in many ways.
The above image is a mixture of artificial and natural light and you could see my eyes are much more lighten. Nothing too dramatic at all but it shows up better than Amethyst.

These lens are super soft and it kept rolling on my palm while rinsing or flipping back when I try putting them on. Maybe I get the hang of it, the success rate of putting this lens is greater than Amethyst. This is much more comfortable and I still get some sight of blurry spots in my vision. I have not experience any redness from this lens yet because I wear this lens not as often as Amethyst. These pair also moulded its shape on to my eye just like how Amethyst did to me previously. Could someone tell me if this is normal? Despite of it doing so, I have not experience any irritation or other side effects because I have the same experience with certain lenses too. If you’re looking for more opaque shades, I suggest you to pick Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green or Sterling Gray.
Currently they are available for MYR43.00 and price might differ from time to time for its promotion, discount or offer.
