Oh my... It has been such a long time since I last blogged! If you have been following me on my Instagram/Facebook/Twitter you will see that I have been working on makeup looks like mad. I have also had exams so now they are done with- back to the blogging, yeay!
I came across a brand called Desio eyes on Instagram. Their contact lenses are by far the best I have seen- they look so natural. Apparantly they are made for dark brown eyes, so I was very eager to see how they would show up on mine. Desio sent me some samples to try and I chose the colours creamy beige (light grey) and desert dream (light/medium green). Desio are based in Italy and very established in the UAE with stores all over.

I was also sent some advertising leaflets by Desio with a basic colour guide for other lenses. Often contact lenses do not show up true to colour on dark brown eyes as the pigment is so strong- but I am super impressed with these! Totally live up to my expectations.
Here are some snaps with the contact lenses in- look how opaque and natural looking they are!
These lenses are so super easy to apply! They are quite a thin lens compared to other lenses I have tried in the past making them so easy to pop in and also give your eye enough oxygen when wearing them.
Because the lenses are so thin you don't even feel as though you have them in after application. I have had them in for more than 8 hours and they don't make my eyes feel heavy or achey like other lenses have done in the past.
These lenses are definitely luxury! I love how they don't have a heavy black line around them. They are crafted so beautifully that they actually look like your real eyes. I have had so many compliments on them and you can only tell they are lenses when looking very closely.
These lenses are also available with a prescription. Prices are as follows...
-Plano (nothing) up to -6,00 is 34 euro (£29)
-Powers over -6,00 and positive is 44 euro (£37.30)
The lenses have a life of about 3 months- but personally I don't wear them everyday only for my looks and occasions so I would give them a bit longer.
The lenses unfortunately don't come with a lens case. For the price I do think they should! However for luxury lenses which look completely natural I don't think £29 is a bad price. I have seen some really false looking and plasticy lenses on the high street for £15. So £29 sounds good to me! Especially because they look so good and gain so many compliments. Available to purchase from www.desiolens.com
