My very first colored contact

Call me stoneage, but I just have the urge to try on colored contact lens since few weeks ago. At the age of 27 ++ (I'm turning 28 in April btw *hint* *hint*). I did some research on what brand is the best so I choose Freshlook.

I had trouble choosing the colors because I don't want it to be too eye popping or too subtle (then what's the point of wearing colored contact right?). Plus the models in the Freshlook pamphlets don't seem to be helping a lot because we're asian with black/dark brown pupils. So I wasn't quite sure how it's gonna look like on me. Then the optician suggested Grey because it's the most popular color (Grey ya. Not Sterling Grey).

The 1st moment I open the box, I was like, okay, this is it. The moment of truth. Wear it or leave it. So here I am, with my 1st color contact lens from Freshlook in Grey.


I was little relief it wasn't that eye popping and not too weird on me.

pordon budak tak mandi lagi ni. am talking about him yer. not me :P

But the only problem for me when I 1st started putting the color contact lens on, my vision is not really that clear. I kept seeing those Grey color around the lens. It's like I'm having cataract of something. Is this suppose to be normal? Will I ever get used to it? But apart from that, it is so comfortable. No irritation whatsoever. (I've got dry eyes. Kinda hard for me to wear any kind of contact lens)

So what do you guys think of the new look? 

Bought it 1 box = 1 pair = 1 month = RM 50. 3 boxes = 3 pairs = 3 months = RM120. Since it's my 1st time, 1 bought 1 box. Maybe next time I can buy more! Maybe in different colors! :P

hi kak ida. i'm an avid user of freshlook. for colored contacts, mmg i never chose any other brands.

well actually the colors kalau tgk sample kt kedai mcm obviously stunning but bile dh pakai they are all pretty because we asians have dark eyes so they blend really well.

i dh try all colors. even, currently i'm wearing turquoise...x obvious sgt pun. nmpk mcm biru je :)

but so far, i think green suits really well on me...mcm incredible hulk lah pulak - NOT!! haha ;p

::Ida:: said...

hi abby!!!
waahh. ni memang pengguna tegar freshlook! :P

i have the same thought jugak! tengok kat kedai mcm terlalu terang. so i pon tanya org kedai it wont look the same mcam model pakai kan sebb mata dia mesti biru or hijau. kita ni hitam! :P

heeheh.. now u made me wanna try even the weirdest color!! belom cuba belom tahu right? hehe.. planning tak nak pakai permanently because i still have few boxes yang transparent. yg ni saje gatai nak try. but it looks sooo friggin interesting wearing color contact! ive never thought it will be this fun!!!!

Ida,
try to use eye drops sbb u complain asik kering kan...
dulu masa i pakai contact lens, i mmg kena carry eye drop tu ke sana ke mari. hehe. kalau tak letak nanti lens tu terkeluar sbb keras. nasib baik tak koyak. sbb i penah terkeluar hohooo dah lah transparent, nasib baik nampak jatuh kat mana! :P

I penah pakai colored punya - freshlook juga! masa wedding, color brown or is it honey. tak ingat lah. I tried few colors, tapi masa tu takde color grey utk try. so i tak pilih grey.

anyway, you really look good in it!
