Review: FreshKon Mosaic Urban Grey

Recently I received a direct mailer from FreshKon which includes a Buy 1, Get 1 free brochure for its latest product - FreshKon Mosaic contact lenses.. I tried before FreshKon Alluring eyes ( Big eyes lenses) and it did make my eyes bigger.. so I thought why not add some colors to my eyes during this Chinese New Year... which I did...

Review:
I have to admit that this was my very first time buying and wearing color lenses, so I was in dilema when I was choosing the color.. At first, I was thinking of taking Velvet Blue since it look really nice on the model, Natalie... but on the other hand, Urban Grey also look not bad.. The optometrist was telling me that this new Mosaic range, all the colors were pretty natural.. She told me that Charming Brown look the most natural, and added that Velvet Blue look quite similar to Urban Grey.. I was thinking since my eyes look abit brown, so thought of getting a different color... After looking at pictures and samples for about 5-10mins, I finally made up my mind and chose Urban Grey.

Here is the picture of the color lenses in the solution:
^ This is how Urban Grey look like ... it really seem to have the mosaic effect.. a mixture of different shades

Think my eyes too small, can see abit of dark brown in the middle of the contact lenses.


I realised that for color lenses, one must wear makeup to enhance the overall look.. From the above pictures, my eyes like look very fierce with and without the contact lenses, but the fierce look is softened when I put on some eye makeup....  
 
For $17.50 per box ( if you have the 1 for 1 brochure), is really worth it... ('',)

Oh, where did you buy it from? I was quoted 38 dollars for a box.
And is there anyway I can get the FreshKon which includes a Buy 1, Get 1 free brochure too.
Thanks :)

Hi,

I bought my FreshKon Mosaic lenses from Pearl's Visioncare at Heartland Mall level 3. I think the recommended retail price is $38but most shops sell a few dollars below the retail price. ( coz I also bought my Alluring eyes contact lenses at $35 instead of the retail price at $38 long time)

Maybe you can call up a few distributors near you to check out the prices, there will be bound to have some who sell below the retail price.

Regarding the buy 1 free 1 brochure, I got it through direct mailer from Freshkon. If you have not registered as member, you can do so now, since its free of charge, then they will send you brochures on their promotions. But I doubt they will send you this brochure immediately upon registeration, but at least you can look forward to their upcoming special promotions or new launches.

Hope my info help.. and thanks for visiting my blog ('',)

Cheers,
Sharon
