I’m back with another set of swatches for Olens’ Russian Smoky series! This is for the shade Olive. Olens has been churning out so many great green lenses as of late that I have already started to be drawn to green. I used to find green to be a lens color I wouldn’t prioritize, as a lot of lens companies either made green lenses too dark or too weirdly neon. Olens has been increasingly able to capture the sweet spot of green lenses with lenses that are brightly colored, but still with a natural tone and graphic print that looks realistic when worn. My skin is pinkish by default, so I guess wearing lenses of the complementary color to pink can also have an unexplainable harmony?
As you can see, these lenses are very apt for dark eyes as my brown eyes become really bright and highlighted when I put these on. These are good at covering up dark colors without looking fake. I’m sure those with dark eyes can relate that there are a lot of lenses that don’t show up in phone selfies on dark eyes, so this is a great addition to Olens’ roster of lenses that show up on dark eyes even on poorly lit selfie settings.
These lenses are made with Olens’ breakthrough Puscon (phosphorylcholine) material, a hydrophilic and biocompatible material that is able to maintain high hydration levels and allow breathability. This material means that the lenses are very comfortable even for use the entire day, and stay hydrated in most conditions. Personally, since I shoot with very harsh lighting, I use Olens’ Cushion Drop contact lens drops for added comfort. But if I didn’t need to be exposed to harsh lighting, the lenses are already very comfortable on their own. I only start “feeling” that the lenses are there after 8-9 hours of continuous wear.
