Where can I get quality red contact lenses?

Hi there!

I'm trying to find some really great red contacts for a demon photoshoot I'm gonna have in a couple weeks. I mainly just want some fantastic looking and comfortable contacts. I've been looking online, but run into so many different sites that I can't find which ones are really reliable.

Please help.

Brands are really important when it comes to colored contacts, so I wouldn't recommend buying any that aren't from a reliable manufacturer. Some of the top brands are Vassen, Geo and Dueba (G&G). Those are all Korean manufacturers and you can wear them for about 2 months.

Pinky Paradise is a good website to get them from, I've used them before several times.

If you're from the USA, remember that you will need a prescription from the optometrist in order to buy contact lenses as you need to be fitted etc.

Check out this thread for some suggestions for red contacts

What about these?

I've ordered from these guys before. Nice look, very comfortable. If you want them in a couple weeks, you might wanna get faster shipping just in case.

I just wanted to say that I've heard of two Finnish people saying they had bad experiences with that store..

I just got my red contact lenses at a local dollar store that sells them for like $25.. They are very comfortable acutally but it will be very hard to find one that actually carries contact lens, i would try Pinky Paradise which is where im buying my circle lens from.

Dolly+ is an excellent brand of circle lenses if you want an intense color, i got their blue ones from candylens.com for my 2P!England cosplay and i plan on buying their red ones from honeycolor.com since shipping is cheaper and faster than candylens. Also it says that wear can last up to 12 months, but i would be careful with that and be sure to take extra care of your lenses. I got mine last October and i still wear them, but about once a month so that they don't sit in the contact solution too long.

This is the website where I get all of my color contacts. You can shop by color if you would like. My favorite brand is GEO. The only thing is, if you want express shipping,you need to spend $100+, or spend an extra $20 something. Regular shipping takes about a month, sometimes more ! >__<

(Sorry for late reply) If you don't wanna take the chance, Foureyez.com sells the same products with better service and faster shipping. I would order with another shipping method to be safe since the free shipping can take FOREVER.

Pinky Paradise is good; it's where I got my red lenses. (I don't know if you have light eyes but these particular kind work awesomely if you do/even if you don't.)

I got my red lenses the "voldemort" ones from eyesbright.com - they're from UK, but I live in USA and still got it just fine, and they are comfortable, vibrant, and has caused no problems so far.

There are a lot of red contact lens designs from Uniqso. Their lenses are very comfortable to wear and I love the smooth and fast transaction with that site. No problem with them since first purchase.
