LUSH Aquilus Cosmetic Lenses Review

I have received 4 pairs of cosmetic lenses from LUSH Aquilus, 1 pair each from the 4 series  Illume, Bloom, Lucent & Crystal  they had to offer. And have worn a pair since, on my recent overseas trip to Norway.

I absolutely love their packaging with the sweet pastels and pretty florals.

I was excited to wear them as I haven't worn colored lenses other than the FRESHKON Alluring Eyes' Magnetic Grey I brought over to Sweden (which was finished during the trip so the LUSH lenses came just in time!) for a long while. I think they don't sell them here. Also, all the colored cosmetic lenses I have worn before were all 42% - 58% water content or more while LUSH's are 38%!

Let me explain more about lenses water content if you don't understand. Soft lenses soak up water, and it is this water which allows the eye to "breathe" through the contact lens. Therefore, the more water the lens can soak up, the easier it is for the oxygen to pass through it because the water serve as a vehicle for the gases. But it has been a misconception, even to me before I found out, that a higher water content lenses mean your eyes will feel less dry. For higher water content lenses, they will contain lesser plastic making it very fragile. Manufacturers will then make them thicker, which counteracts on the benefit of more water.

High water content lenses can also worsen dry eye symptoms. According to 1800contacts, contacts designed to hold 65% water, for example, will wick away moisture from whatever environment they are in — in this case, your already-dry eyes — to maintain that 65% level of moisture. While the lenses will be nice and moist, this will leave your eyes drier than they were before.

Bottom line, soft contacts with a low water content level of about 38% will feel comfortable and allow your eyes to breathe without drying them out. If it still feels uncomfortable or dry, it is better to use low water content lenses with eye drops rather than high water content lenses.

When I first took it out, it felt and looked extremely soft, and put on, extremely comfortable it didn't feel like it was there. It felt better than my dailies, although because of my already present dry eye symptoms, it started to feel a tad dry after about 3 hours. I didn't have any eye drops with me so it could possibly be relieved with it.

Love the subtle color and how natural it looked 

I have yet to try the other 3 pairs I've got - LUCENT Grey, BLOOM Brown & CRYSTAL Sky. 
I am looking forward to trying them out. Be updated by following my IG @kokibecks.

To end off this post, I would like to mention that I have actually read up a lot on contact lenses while writing this post and it reminded me that lenses are still a foreign body being put in your eyes and no matter what material they use or however high or low the water content is, it is never good to wear it for prolonged periods of time. I know it's difficult but do try to take it off 6-8 hours after you have put them on, or if circumstances don't allow, regularly apply natural tear drops (within their storage life - usually 1 month - upon opening). And let your eyes breathe without a barrier once in awhile (in other words, wear glasses if you're myopic & skip wearing it if not, haha).

You wouldn't want to lose your sight for the sake of vanity!

P.S. I can't wait to go for RELEX Smile.
