I think they'd be a little lighter on your eyes :3 The color is pretty dense on the lense.

Rewetting drops are eyedrops meant for when you have contacts in and your eyes dry out for any reason.
And I'm just using standard contacts solution (I use OptiFree because ReNu burns my eyes :\). I think you can get some in small bottles for only about 15-30 uses

I was wondering if anyone had pictures of themselves (or others) wearing the blue lenses from this site:
single color:
http://www.colorlens4less.com/index....roducts_ id=1
double color:
http://www.colorlens4less.com/index....roducts_ id=9
Triple color:
http://www.colorlens4less.com/index....oducts_ id=16

In the pictures that they have posted (of the double and triple colors), they don't seem to stand out extremely well. The aqua color *looks* more ideal, but I cant tell how shopped the picture is underneath:
http://www.colorlens4less.com/index....roducts_ id=3

Thanks guys! Sorry if this isn't totally relevant to the thread. I'll post some pictures of my colormax blue ones later, since i don't have pictures of them on the computer I'm on at the moment.

The 2-tones are WAY better than the 1 or 3 tones ^.^;;;

The aqua is literally THE brightest non-halloween lens that I know of...

The blues are still pretty vibrant, though

Man phantomthief, how many pairs of coloured contacts do you HAVE? xD Thanks for the info =] I need to visit my optometrist to get new glasses anyway (Fell into a customers bag, and never came back D: ), so I'll pick up some of those drops and solution too ^^

Maaan, I want to buy them now to try them on... but I don't need to wear them until April next year. If I try them on then leave them, will they die by then?

Those aren't me, just people I know X3 I only have two pairs (about to get a third) at the moment.

I'd suggest not buying them just yet... They're okay to stretch over about a year, but there's always a chance that they'd dry out in the solution :\

These are a litte uncomfortable after a while so you may need rewetting drops. The color is pretty decent in person but REALLY pops in pictures Unlike other purple lenses, this isn't a lilac/grey color at all which made me really happy.

Grade: A- (for comfort)

Whoa. LOVE those...! Do those come in prescription too? I would love to get those for my Lelouch from Code Geass cosplay...

Btw, has anyone bought the Violet Max contacts and are there any pictures you guys could share of you wearing them? =3

anyone have suggestions for a nice dark brown (not hazel or honey) colored contact for light eyes? I have medium blue eyes naturally and need a fairly typical dark brown Asian eye color--specifically, the Jrock singer Miyavi.

Here's a reference pic:

Yeah, those come in prescription, but only for correcting nearsightedness oddly enough, up to -6.00 looks like.

Also, if you're referring to the Color Max violet lenses, there's a pic of one of those on the first page of this thread, post 7 I think.

Oh god. Thank goodness. My eyes are right before -6.00! XD And thanks about the pic reference for the Color Max. =D This thread saves my life! (and cosplays).

However...does the Foureyez site only sell plano non prescription lenses? I'm so interested in the Purple Classic...=(

Looks like they only have plano, which is why I'm going after the Create Eyewear 2-tone :B I need my prescription >_<; If you find out that they do, please post on here to let us know *_*

I was going for the foureyez, but they don't come in prescription. I'm -1.00 in both eyes so I was happy to find the Create eyewear lenses :3 I'm also using mine for Lelouch!

Awesome...though it seems that you can't order lenses with different presciptions...my left eye and right eyes are different...do you know if I can contact them to buy one a different power?

Unfortunately, they come in sealed boxes of two so I'm fairly sure they don't sell them seperately :\

Brand: FreshLook Colors (Opaque)
Contact Color: Violet
Normal Eye Color: Medium Brown.
Comfort: Great.
Long lasting. I wore them all day long with no discomfort or dryness.
Type: Prescription

Cost: $35/box. Can be had cheaper online
Each contact/pair lasts 2 weeks.

Color/Intensity: Fairly nice.
I'll have to add a non flash photo. I threw my Mom-inlaw for a loop
when she first saw me with the contacts (indoors). They are very
noticeably purple. The nice thing is that they show up light-purple
indoors and out. Have a slight tendency to look light grey in some
indoor lighting. Even the Hyatt's dim night time lighting allowed
them to look purple though.

Overall: A

Both photos taken indoors in convention center lighting with flash.
First picture is my normal eye color. It's a medium brown. On an off note, I don't think I'll try shimmery foundation (makeup) again.



I also tried FreshLook's colorblend line in lavender (test contact). It barely even registered in my eyes at all. There was no discernible difference. I'd recommend other people with the same eye color to steer away from the colorblends and go for the opaque color line instead.
