If you want to know how to shop with them, click here. 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. Currently Mr Lens Facebook is having a campaign of Share with Friends to earn MYR20 discount once 10 of your friends like their page. So what are you waiting for?

Brands available in MrLens.com.my include:

Verdict?

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.

How much?

PROs:

  • More opaque than Amethyst
  • Natural look

  • Blurry vision

My rating: 3.5/5

Review: Amethyst Pretty Mystical Eyes

MrLens is the largest online reseller of contact lens from Europe in Malaysia and the finalist in the prestigious Swiss Economic Award in 2008. They have the largest online inventory offering the lowest price in Malaysia with free delivery (for purchases above MYR50 for selected areas in Klang Valley). They have recommend a friend program for you to earn discounts where your friend will need to register and make their first purchase Also, coupon share with friends to earn vouchers to shop at MrLens are available too! If you want to know how to shop with them, click here. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m one of the participants for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest  and here is my first pair of lens to review. I have selected Freshlook Colorblends in Amethyst, it comes in a box of a pair of lenses.

These contact lenses came in blister packs which is safer than little vials when it comes to opening the packaging. Blister packs are easy to use as you’ll just need to prick at the bottom left where it says ‘lift foil’ and pull to remove the seal. For those vials, they have metal seal where you’ll be very prone in injuring yourself while opening it.  There’s quite a strong sterile scent once the blister pack is opened. These contact lens is 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 soaked these lenses overnight with my saline solution before wearing them the next day. The diameter of the lens is 14.5 which is pretty much quite a standard size. There will be no big eye effect because those lenses diameter are usually larger than this. I prefer to go without big eye effect because sometimes the effect is a little exaggerating and I love playing around with colors more. These are three tone lenses and offers the most natural look for your eyes.

Here’s a before and after wearing the lens. How the color of the lens shows up on your eyes will depend on the color of your iris. My iris color is dark brown and I’m using artificial white light here. Amethyst is purple, however it turned out looking blue-ish on my eyes but it does look very natural.

The color is not as opaque and it’ll be very visible for only close-ups. If you’re looking for natural look lenses, these are great. I was wearing these lenses in one of my current makeup tutorials which is Mystical Sky Prom, please do check out the tutorial to achieve the look I’m wearing for this entire post! The makeup and the lens matches very well.

In this image it’s a combination of artificial and natural light. At this distance, I looked like I did not wear any lenses at all. Currently, MrLens Facebook is having a campaign on Share with Friends to earn MYR20 discount once 10 of your friends like their page. So what you’re waiting for?

Verdict?

My first time wearing contact lenses are also Freshlook Colorblends and it took me half and hour to put it on. I almost forgotten about it until I tried putting this pair on. The lens is super soft that it kept rolling in my palm when I was washing it with my saline solution. Putting it on is difficult as it is so soft that it flips backwards or sticks halfway on the finger. I have not use this brand for such a long time and it took me half and hour again to put on again. My eye was getting red after its nicely on. For the first hour of wearing it, it was a little uncomfortable as I kept sighting blurry spots at the sides of my vision but after a few hours it was normal. I also get a little dizziness after 4-5 hours of wearing and my eyes started to get tired. Despite of wearing it for more than 8 hours, sometimes it makes my eye red but without irritation. Removing it was a little slippery because the lens doesn’t stay in its shape nicely and the shape of the lens moulded onto my eye ball. Is that normal? Because I only experienced it on certain lenses. If you’re looking for more opaque colors, you could look into Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green and Sterling Gray.

Shopping with MrLens.com.my

There was once I purchased at Mr Lens using Groupon voucher but it wasn’t a very nice experience back then because the system failed to register me and more. However, I’m giving another chance since I’m the participant for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest. Here I’m going to guide how to shop at Mr Lens and each image is clickable for larger view.

This is how MrLens webpage looks like, very simple and easy to use. They are mainly reputable online contact lens reseller in Malaysia. There are loads of options to choose from with disposables, colored and astigmatism lenses.

You may browse as guest or if you wish to purchase with them, you could create an account. Click on ‘My Account’ on the top right of the website and register. The last time I tried registering with them, failed but this time it went on smoothly and once you registered, you will receive a welcome email from them.

For this contest, I was allowed to select any color of lens from Freshlook Colorblends but there are many other lenses to select from because they carry various brands. There are even lenses that are great for Halloween like partial white, cat eyes and etc. I’m eyeing on it but they are on the heavier side of the price because those special lenses are not as wearable daily.

Once you clicked on the preferred brand, it will bring you more in-depth details about the lens that you have selected. This is where you are given option to choose the diameter, base curve, power, color and quantity. Once you have selected your preferred selection, you will be able to ‘Add to Cart’.

This is what it looks like for the items that you have selected to be added into the cart. If you wish to add more items, you could click ‘Continue Shopping’  in the middle. If you with to remove it, click on the selection box on the left of your lens selected under remove then update which is on the left. If you like to make order for lenses, click on ‘Check out’. Once you check out you will be able to make your payment. Your order status will be updated from time to time and they will ship your order within a week.

Their package comes in a resealable bag where they included brochures, the lenses ordered and surprisingly, this time with a few of little packets of Fisherman’s Friend lozenges. That was pretty random because I never receive any from my last purchase. The staff from Mr Lens and I think his name is Jason, was very nice to call me in regards on the availability of my lenses, gave me the options if I would like to change and to assure when I should receive it. This shows their efficiency and how responsible are they. Me like!

The lenses I have selected is Amethyst and Gray. I was very happy for all their service until their dispatch boy called me because he was at my home to deliver the lenses when I have requested to deliver to my office. I told him to come over because my office is not very far from my home yet he asked if he could just chuck the lenses into my mail box. After failing to do so, he then decided to sent it to my office. Other than this matter, every thing went smoothly. Stay tune for the review of these lenses on how it looks on me and every other thing about it!
