Recently I found out that my eyes weren't in top shape anymore.... it's probably due to all the circle lenses I've been wearing for extended hours at times!!! :( So my eye doctor has officially told me to stay away from them and that if I do choose to wear contacts, I could risk severely losing my vision in my left eye!!!! *CRY* Sigh.
Which is why I am ONLY going to stick to my glasses, and daily contacts for now. But I am still vain and want the color and enlargement effect.... so I got these 1-day Acuvue Define lenses from KLENSPOP.
For contact lens wearers, I'm sure most of you have heard of Acuvue. They have an extensive range of contacts, and are among the top leaders in the contacts world, making *in my opinion* the MOST COMFORTABLE CONTACT LENSES ever! The Acuvue Define series is a colored-series that has 3 colors to enhance and enlarge your iris - the brown (vivid), black (accent), and in my case, the mix brown-black (natural shine)!
The Acuvue Define Natural Shine contact lens has a diameter of 14.2mm, and has a soft-grey limbal ring of diameter 12.7mm to enlarge your eyes in a natural and subtle way. The inner brown design is also deliberaly not uniform in a w4y that shows that *sparkle* in your eye, as opposed to the *dead, flat look* that circle lenses tend to give because of their uniformity in design.
I got the box of 30 lenses (15 pairs), and because they are daily disposable lenses, they are individually wrapped and you just toss it out whenever you're done with them ~ which is a LOT more sanitary and fuss-free!!
My before and After shot - the only downside I would say is that its design didn't really fit my eyeball shape (this seems to be the general problem others were having too) - and you can sort of tell the lens is sitting in my eye weird - and it does shift around during your weartime. Mine isn't as bad as some others I've seen, where the lens will COMPLETELY slide all the way down making you look like you have double iris which can be really creepy. Mine just shifts slightly to the side and downwards, and whenever I blink they return to their "rightful" spots.
Again, both eyes wearing the lenses, one without flash in indoor natural lighting facing the window, and the bottom one with flash. Both looks SOOOOO NATURAL, and it does give your eye that "twinkle" effect WHILE still being totally discreet and subtle.
Here is the full face selfie with me wearing the lens - I find that full face shots always help when it comes to judging facial/makeup products. It's definitely a good size in terms of enlargement, but probably not suitable for you if you're going for that gyaru - super doll look.
The design of this lens is flawless - the limbal rings just accents the iris in the most natural way while the brown provides that sparkle effect/ MINUS 2 POINTS for the super slidey-ness though! Acuvue please fix this!
You guessed it. As with any daily disposable product, these lenses have the highest oxygen permeability you can get and that is SUPER IMPORTANT when making sure your eyes are kept healthy.
A common misconception is that a lot of people will look for the "water content" in a lens and judge by a higher water content that it'll be most healthy. THIS IS ENTIRELY FALSE.
Your cornea, just like you as a human being, needs OXYGEN way more than it needs WATER. when choosing lenses make sure you pick something that has a HIGH O2 PERMEABILITY rating than a "water content" rating, because lot of lenses out there in the market will try to promote their "water content".
Hope you guys all take good good care of your eyes and not end up like me!!! Please choose high oxygen permeable, daily disposable colored lenses if you really want that enlargement effect - I am totally guilty when it comes to that special "twinkle" in my eyes! The Acuvue Define Natural Shine is my favorite out of all the Acuvue Define series - which you can all find at KLENSPOP!
