Blend of Colours Violet



Rating: A-

My eyes are naturally hazel/green/blue/gray (depending on what day it is ^^;; ). Most often, they are green with a gold rim on the inside, surrounding the pupil. These lenses are the third pair I have ever bought, and they were purchased from Fashion Contact Lenses--I love that site.

Pros:
~ Very comfortable. I barely even notice I have them in.
~ Didn't move around in the eye.
~ Very affordable where I bought them; about $32.00 including S/H, I think.

Cons:
~ Not as vivid and bright as I would have liked. They photograph quite well (you can really see the purple), but they aren't quite as noticeable in person. They tend to look more purple the longer you wear them (it's actually quite strange, but true), so that's good. Still not as vivid as I would have liked. That could be a pro instead of a con for some people though.

Um, the point of this thread is to show the contacts on your actual eyes,(in comparison with your natural eye color), not the thumbnail drawings from some contact website, people want to see what they actually look like, and most sotck SFX lenses look at least a bit different than the artist conception drawings.

Ah, no problem, that's what the 'post edit' button is for anyways, and thank goodness for that, I've been known to do the same thing, only usually I just copy and paste the wrong link. XD

Seconding the purple love, those are really pretty, bright enough without being too distracting. Much nicer than the Freshlook Colors Violet to be sure.

Alas, no matter which lenses they are, if they're from fasion-contactlenses.com, I can't do anything with them. >< Damn me and my blindness! XD Can't wait to get Lasik so I can buy cheap planos!

if I weren't mistaken, they're Exoticon's product..
I don't know if that's an international product... but apparently, it's one the 2 best contact lens developer in my country...
Oh, and they're about from $90 to $100... their age: if you use it everyday, around 5 months, if you use it seldom, around 6 months
though, they're like the ones I want in the 007s-contact, aside from the color difference

I haven't buy a new ones nor use them again, but I'll post the comparison under the same condition.

Does anyone know where I can get fairly inexpensive red eye contacts for my Rei Ayanami costume? I looked at all the site links but none of them have plain red eye contacts.

Just look on google for "Red Contact Lenses". Tons of sites with different types of red lenses =) The ones on the link are just plain red.

Which contacts are best for making very dark brown/black eyes YELLOW? I want to cosplay as Yoruichi, but still need more information on the best contacts.

Question. Does anyone have these contacts? If so I'd -love- to see some pictures of how they look in medium to dark toned or any tone of Hazel eyes.

This site: http://www.fashion-contactlenses.com/

These lenses:
Light Hazel Enhanced Contact Lenses
Honey Lenses by Color Fusion


Hime: The first set (light hazel enhance) I just listed may fit what you want. They claim to totally hide your natural eye colour. ^^

Also, if you click the Crazy Contact Lenses button, a little over half way down the page are some bright opaque yellow lenses that I've seen people use and do indeed turn your eyes crayon yellow.

Be careful with the Fusion set of lenses... they DO NOT change your eye colour completely, they're nice for a natural look/touch though. I got the
Lilac Enhanced Contact Lenses But they weren't very vibrant... Maybe lighter eyes have a better chance with them, but they are not really made for dark eyes, I even e-mailed the the people of the site and asked if they would show up really well on dark eyes and they said "no." So I am very cautious of ordering anything from there if I'm not 100% sure of how it will really look since they photo shop their pictures and by some chance if they do have their model wearing the lenses their eyes are very very light in colour.
