MarsQuest Sunglasses Review
Even though summer has passed and the colder weather is approaching, it doesn’t mean that we need to completely banish our collection of sunglasses. In fact, despite the decrease of daylight hours, the sun still regularly assaults our eyes with its blinding beams of light! With this in mind, I’ve taken the opportunity to review a selection of sunglasses from MarsQuest on my mens fashion blog.
The brand MarsQuest have positioned themselves firmly on the eyewear map with a large collection of different designs to choose from. Once you begin to browse their range it will become quite apparent that they offer a style for everyone! They pride themselves on offering premium sunglasses at an affordable price point, allowing everyone to enjoy quality products without breaking the bank! For my review, I choose three different pairs – Force Black X Charcoal Aviators, Force Silver X Quartz Aviators and Momentum Violet.
Upon opening the large parcel, I was greeted with some very cool boxes, each different style of sunglasses boasting a unique style of packaging . Both aviators are safely secured inside a large and sturdy black box, the opening mechanism is a small piece of ribbon, which when pulled allows you to slide open the draw to reveal the contents. In contrast, the Momentum Violet is supplied in a smaller box which opens with the more traditional fitted lid style. The outside of the boxes is minimalist in design, in fact the only branding is the MarsQuest logo created using a reverse embossed blue foil effect which stands out from its black surroundings.
If you have read this far, then I’m sure you are desperate to know all about the sunglasses! Well, let me get straight to it. First up, we have the Force Black X Charcoal Aviators which are very striking in appearance, it is quite unusual to see truly solid black lenses, yet MarsQuest have managed to pull it off quite effectively! They convey a degree of mystery to the wearer whilst adding an edgy look to your street style outfit.
The Force Silver X Quartz Aviators feature extremely reflective lenses, passersby will be drawn to this mirrored effect, noticing the entirety of the world around them within them as they gaze into your eyeline. To the wearer, they are certainly a cool fashion accessory, allowing you to give your best Maverick impression from Topgun!
Finally we have the purple pair, which have surprisingly been my favourites! That semi transparent coloured plastic construction is so attractive in its almost retro design. Wearing these will always give an otherwise boring and drab outfit an amazing pop of colour! I actually cannot wait for summer again, so I can rock these at the beach!
Each of the three pairs has a tiny amount of branding, just their small logo positioned in the top corner of one of the lenses, unobtrusive yet still visible enough to those with a keen eye. An additional fact about MarQuest sunglasses is that each pair is crafted to be almost indestructible (barring catastrophic natural disasters!) and there are many videos available to prove their endurance level. However, I personally never subjected my pairs to any abuse. Due their flexible nature, you can easily deduce that they will certainly hold up against an onslaught of attacks and survive unscathed.
In summary, I am happy to report that my MarsQuest sunglasses experience was very successful! Excellent packaging, beautiful designs and all available at a very reasonable price point. What do you think of their collection? Please let me know what you think of the brand in the comments below.
