Anybody wear colored contacts?

I'm bored and thinking about changing my eye color. (I'm thinking about green this time )

Anybody else wear colored lenses? If so, what's your natural eye color and what color are your lenses?

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

jenn, you lucky girl!
I have what I call 'diarrhea' brown. They're not light nor are they dark. They're boring.

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

I wore them for many years. My eye color is a greenish/grayish/blue, and I wore aqua contacts. They were very pretty ~ much prettier than what I was born with.
I only stopped wearing them because Patrick kept telling me how much he loved my natural eye color.

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

No, I couldn't put contacts in my eyes at all.
I blink too much. Its funny though how everyone always likes what they don't have.
I have hazel eyes so they tend to look green most of the time,sometimes blue.
My DH has brown and I always loved brown eyes.

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

Where did you guys get them? I ordered them online a long time ago and lost them, is there a way to not spend a million and get them locally?

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

I get mine from VisionDirect.com .

I don't wear colored contacts, but they do sell them at Vision Direct. You need to know your prescription though and all the little measurement numbers (I forget what you call them).

What brand colored contacts do you all wear? I've been thinking of getting them but don't know which kind look good.

OMFG! LOL! How come nobody mentioned that I had 'WHERE' instead of 'WEAR'!?! (I just edited it.)

Boy was I definitely tired yesterday.

Re: Anybody where colored contacts?

anniegrl,
I buy the Durasoft 3 Opaques and I get them from 1800contacts. They give me the most dramatic change.

I have used Cooper Vision's Natural Touch in Sultry Gray and they definitely looked more natural.

Other than those 2, there weren't any other colored lenses that could change the color of my eyes.

Re: Anybody wear colored contacts?

They are great! I have been wearing them for the last 11 years. I have dark brown eyes, but wear aqua Color Blends. In the past, I have worn other brands and colors. The Color Blends are definitely the most natural looking. Most people do not notice. The best thing about this brand is that they are disposable after two weeks. Your eye store should be able to provide you with free samples to see if you like the color or not. My only recommendation is stick to one color otherwise people know that they are not real.

Re: Anybody wear colored contacts?

am470,
I don't want them to look natural. I want something a bit more obvious. People always told my my eyes looked cool when I wore the Sapphire Blue contacts. Besides, the contacts will be worn when I go out to clubs, etc. They're for fun, not everyday. I think of them as an accessory.

I found that the disposables just didn't give me any coverage, just a dark line around the rims of my eyes. I have boxes of disposables sitting in my medicine cabinet b/c they don't enhance or change my eyecolor.

Re: Anybody wear colored contacts?

I do and my eyes are almost black. I use green.
The brand I use is Freshlook Colorblends. They're very natural because they blend in the color with flecks of brown.

They just came out with some more colors that are a bit more dramatic, like violet and aqua.
