GLOSS cosmetics contact lenses!

Anyone from Australia wanting to try out cosmetic lenses to see if it's their kind of fashion accessory should check out GLOSS, who have stores all around Sydney! I recently bought 2 pairs from them so I though I'd share some pictures and opinions.

I was really excited to find a store that sells contact lenses in Sydney! At first I was a little bit worried because although these lenses are from Korea, the shop assistant couldn't tell me what brand they were (EOS or GEO). Might just be that I'm overly cautious, but I'm putting these things in my eyes so I kinda wanna know if they're going to make me blind or something! I bought a couple of pairs after a while because I got too excited about wearing them out later that week and forgot about all my concerns. Oops.

It cost me $34 for 2 pairs. I got tri-tone lenses in grey and green, as I wanted them to blend into my natural colour and they did so perfectly. A little too perfectly maybe...
Not a huge difference.
 Above are the grey lenses in my right eye and my natural eye on the left. Not much of a difference at all! They make my eyes look less blue-green and more hazel I suppose.. But the colour change is barely noticeable.

There is a little bit of enlargement which is good. I was expecting them to be more enlarging as the package states the diameter as 14.2mm. I was disappointed when I looked closer at the lens and saw that there is a clear ring on the outside (about 0.2mm wide). But as you can see, they make my limbal ring more pronounced providing some natural enlargement.

Both lenses in.

Close up! You can see the clear outer ring if you look closely.
  I guess what I wanted was natural enlargement and these do that.. But not to the extent I wanted. These would be absolutely perfect if they were the exact same design and colour, but 14.5mm.
My search for the perfect natural enlarging lenses continues.

These are still good lenses. As a rookie to the contact lenses thing, it is great to have practice inserting and removing lenses, as well as becoming accustomed to the way they feel in your eyes. I am looking forward to seeing how the green tri-tones look.

Colour/Design: 7/10
I've already talked about this above, but basically it is a lovely natural lens that blends perfectly into light eyes. There is a natural limbal ring design on the outer rim is lovely.

Comfort: 9/10
I wore these for around 8 hours before my eyes began to feel tired and I took them out. I'm sure if I used some rewetting drops I could have worn them for longer but it isn't advised to wear them for too long. Anyway these were very comfortable lenses. There was occasional blurring caused by the lens moving, but not very often.

Enlargement: 6/10
I feel a little bit lied to with the whole 14.2mm diameter thing when they're really only 14mm. But there is some natural enlargement from the darker limbal ring.

Overall: 8/10
I forgot to mention above that these are NOT yearly lenses. Most GEO and EOS lenses last for a year which makes their prices extremely reasonable. These are 90 day lenses which is okay I suppose but if I can get yearly lenses from the internet for the same price... well I can wait a couple of weeks and be happy.

These lenses are still quite nice and overall I'm happy with these GLOSS brand lenses.
I recently ordered EOS Puffy 3tones in grey which I'm hoping will be enlarging but natural. Will be sure to review them for you.

Any questions, leave a comment. Or just say hi. =)

  1. This one blends so well people probably wouldn't even realise you had anything in! My favs so far are still the 1st contacts which were huge and alien-esque

    1. Haha thanks Rory. And you're right. They're so natural that no one even notices anythings different. So they're not the best. But the other ones will be making an appearance soon. :)

  3. Hey do you know how often you should change the solution? I've got the exact same gray contacts and I'm still new. Please reply to me ASAP at anessa1_vanessa1@hotmail.com :)

    1. Hi there!
      I will send this to your email address too.
      I change the solution in the contacts case every week, or after I wear a pair of lenses.
      Your bottle of solution will expire after a few months (once you've opened it) so you should replace it often. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!! ^__^
      How do you like your lenses?
