Questions referred

1.

Are coloured non-corrective themed contact lenses consisting of copolymers and water (hydrogel) a ‘cosmetic product’ (‘substance’ and/or ‘mixture’) within the meaning of Article 2(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 (1), which is intended, within the meaning of that provision, to be placed in contact with external parts of the human body?

2.

Can the scope of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 be extended to a situation where a product which does not fulfil the conditions of Article 2(1)(a) of the regulation appears to be a cosmetic product according to the predominant purpose for a reasonably well informed and reasonably observant and circumspect average consumer, for example owing to the fact that wording such as ‘Cosmetic eye accessories are governed by the EU Cosmetics Directive’ or ‘Colour eye accessories are governed by the EU Cosmetics Directive’ is used on the packaging?
