Olens Ever Shine Brown & Gray

I'm a fan of coloured lenses, they add depth to my eye and usually, I don't hear that I look tired in coloured lenses like I hear when I don't wear them. Olens Ever Shine line is a fresh Olens line with an adorable, natural tint to the lens. 

About Olens 

Olens is the no. 1 premium colour contact lens brand from South Korea. This brand makes regular lenses as well as coloured lenses. It's a pioneer in Beauty&Healthy eye styling, and it's a brand that is recognised all over the world. Olens products were used in many Kdramas and photoshoots. The brand was in the spotlight of many beauty programs in Korea.     

Can coloured lenses be corrective?  

I feel like many people think that contact lenses are not for eyes with no vision problems and that coloured lenses shouldn't be used by people with vision issues. That's not true! The main reason for wearing lenses for many people is aesthetic issues or comfort issues - I started to wear lenses because I find glasses more problematic, and they usually don't fit me well. Lenses don't make me tired, and I feel like thanks to contact lenses my sight is doing better than it would do with glasses. Coloured lenses are sometimes called "cosmetic lenses" since they change the visual colour of your iris, and that's something some people don't know - when you buy coloured lenses from Olens you can fit them to your needs, if you need corrective aspect of lenses, you can choose the shade of the lens and power. All the lenses I tested in this post are -3.00 power.

How to choose lenses for my eyes and skin?  

If you want to try Olens so badly, but don't know what colour fits your skin - Olens has the #FindMyOlens option which helps you choose a lens shade that fits your skin tone. You can also choose graphic size and colour. There are even styling videos that can help you choose a makeup style to fit your eyes with Olens lenses on.

The motto of these lenses is "warm up your adorable persona", and I have to agree, I feel like darker lenses with bigger diameters and graphic diameters give more depth to my eye. I adore Olens when they add the depth to lens by making the outer ring a bit darker, but the graphic gradient more delicate. It looks super natural, and although my eyes look bigger in Olens Ever Shine, they do look natural and adorable. The main point of these lenses is 13.8mm G.DIA and brightening and soft toned-up shade for daily use. Olens released Ever Shine as 1-day aka daily use lenses, they are ideal if you travel since you can just change a pair every day.

I love these lenses! Although I tested -3.50 power in this version (you can get them in 0.00 to -8.00 power) they were a bit too strong for me, and if you wear too strong lenses, your eyes might get tired earlier, but at least I know that if I have to change the power then -3.50 is too much for me.

The material itself is amazing, especially now during allergy season I feel like my eyes like daily lenses more than monthly ones. The colour is great and it blends well with my natural eye colour.

I have to admit, these lenses are super comfortable. I didn't notice the base curve since usually all lenses have an 8.6 or 8.7 mm base curve but lately, I found out that this size is the best for me, and that base curve means a lot. I had lenses with a base curve of 9.0mm and they fell out of my eye, so a base curve of 8.7mm is ideal for me, but it's a personal thing.

I love dark lenses, but I would never thought I'd enjoy Olens Ever Shine Brown more than Gray's version. This version looks so lovely on Green/Blue eyes. Even if Ever Shine Brown is more of a warm-tinted shade, it's adorable! I tested them in my regular power -3.00 and they do feel super comfortable on the eye. With too strong power your eyes might get tired, but the water content of these lenses is amazing. Even if in this case material is HEMA, not Puscon.

I'm really surprised how the details in graphic design seem to be solid but they are gradient so the lenses blend well with the natural eye. If you like coloured lenses or you want to play with them - go for this model, it's adorable!

I am from the US, can I still order lenses from Olens?  

Yes. Contact lenses in the US are not sold as easily as in Europe. In comparison, in Europe, I can ask my optometrist or eye doctor to order lenses for me or I can order them on my own. Some brands are available in stores so even if you're out of lenses you can buy them. I had a situation when I got my first lenses and I didn't know that 1-day lenses are not as easy to put as 1-month lenses I needed to grab a new pair in a random drugstore in Paris. The US situation looks different because of the US FCLCA (The Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act) so Olens can be ordered if you're living in the US but your lenses will go through a prescription verification system.
