Review: Charmé Mesmerize Grey contact lenses

♫ BEAST - Shadow (그림자)
"Because I'm shadow, shadow, shadow..."
I kinda have that song stuck in my head now.

Anyway, back to today's post. I'll be showing you another pair of Charmé Mesmerize contact lenses, this time in grey. I'd previously reviewed the violet, and loved it so much that I decided to try out the grey ones this time around. Did I mention that I love grey contact lenses? (◑‿◐)

Charmé contact lenses
Details of the lens on the side
The contact lenses come in a small box with details of the contact lens printed on the box. I really appreciate how my contact lens orders from always came with a cute little contact lens case, although others have remarked that they did not receive it. (⌒_⌒;)

Blister packaging
Blister packaging for contact lenses always get a thumbs up from me, because they're easier (and safer) to remove. No need to struggle with small glass vials (where the lens might stick to the bottom) or stubborn aluminum seal caps that might cut you (or break a nail).

Charmé Mesmerize Grey
Similar to the violet, these grey ones have swirly pattern with a darker (black) outer ring. I find that the outer ring for the grey ones is lighter than the violet.

With and without lenses
The lenses claim to be 14.1mm, which is considered normal-sized lenses and don't help in enlarging your irises, but I find that my eyes do look noticeably larger when worn. (Or maybe I just naturally have very small eyes fml.) It looks pretty natural when seen from afar or under low light conditions, but the design shows up nicely in good/bright lighting.

I can't emphasize enough on how much I like grey lenses. They're not over the top like blue/green/purple, but are unique enough to add interest to any look. Plus, they go really well with practically any eye makeup, especially smokey eyes. (◕‿◕✿)

The Charmé Mesmerize contact lenses are my current favourites, and for good reason. They're comfortable, look natural yet unique on the eyes, and affordable (from

I just have one slight gripe with them, and that is at the end of the day, if your eyes are feeling slightly dry and you don't wet them with some eye drops, the lenses tend to fold into half and stick together after you remove them. A little wash with solution does the trick, but it's better to use some eye drops before removing them if your eyes feel a tad dry.
