Recently we talked about Contacts for Cosplay 101. Very shortly after I received two complimentary pairs of circle lenses from ColouredContacts.com to review. I’m very excited that this company reached out to me as before this I was not aware of them. To start this review, I would like to state that while these lenses were free, all opinions are my own.
The first thing I do when looking into a new company for cosplay anything is check out their website, and see what they are all about. Coloured Contacts is a Netherlands based company that has been around for over twenty years.
Their website is very user friendly. I especially like that they have such a wide variety of ways to search for lenses, such as by color, by style, or by duration the lenses will last. I knew from their website and history that this company was definitely worth checking out. From what I can tell this is strictly a costume contacts store meaning that they do not do prescription contacts.
What did they send me?
Aside from two pairs of lenses they also sent me everything I would need to get get my contacts safely from the package and into my eyes. I really wish I had done an unboxing video for this because I was really taken by surprise by how generous they were. They sent me contact solution, two cases to keep my lenses in, and a small kit that came with tweezers and a small plunger. I haven’t quite figured out what the small plunger is for, but the tweezer proved safe in assisting the removal of my contacts from the product packaging. They definitely went above and beyond to make sure I would have a pleasant experience with their lenses.
The first pair of lenses I tried were the Green Hulk Lenses. They are funky and vibrant, and I can’t wait to figure out what I will use them to do. They are 14.5 mm in diameter, but i would say there is about 4 mm of clear lens around the colored part. This means that they do not increase the size of your iris, but the color makes these a great lens for effect.
These lenses are super comfortable, and they really do pop. Since these are a heavy effect lens they do have color much tighter to the pupil. This means that if you have larger pupils it will obscure your vision. I noticed that my vision was slightly hazy from these lenses.
Misty Brown Lenses
I will update this post when I have the proper link for these lenses. I opted to do one funky pair and one more natural pair. Overall, I really enjoyed these lenses, and would 100% recommend them. My eyes are naturally hazel, and these blended very well with my natural color to give me a very doll-eyed look. These lenses were also 14.5 mm diameter, but the color goes to the edge of the lens for that full on kawaii effect.
These were ultimately more comfortable than the other lenses because they were softer, but this also makes them harder to insert into your eye, in my personal opinion. This is a small price to pay for how good they look and feel.
I hope you found this review and the pictures helpful. I will definitely, 100% be buying from them again since their contacts so far are top notch. Plus, they have free shipping to the US for 6-12 day shipping, and 4-6 working days for only $9.50 extra. I would also mention that right now they are running a special where you can get two lenses for $35. I strongly recommend checking out ColouredContacts.com for your next need for contacts for cosplay.
