I was a little skeptical of buying a lighter color like rose, but I'm so glad I did! They're so much more than a fashion statement. Not only do they dim the glare of the sun for comfortable vision, but they also held up to the test of being worn for several hours on a face I forgot to reapply sunscreen to. While my forehead, nose, and cheeks turned a rosy pink, I'm confident in the full UV coverage protection that Rainbow OPTX advertises since my eyes and surrounding skin didn't burn in the slightest. Functionality aside, these are extremely cute to wear to summer concerts, the pool, and basically anywhere, especially while sipping a glass of rose wine! I'll add that the pink tone goes especially well with ****, taupe, and rose gold--they definitely match a lot more than I thought they would.
