I have more of a controversial topic to ask your opinion on this Thursday. Kinda trying to be bolder with these topics and I love to hear your thoughts. I will share mine too though I might receive some heat for it.

What is your position on colour contact lenses? In short, I'm not a fan on myself but like them on some ppl. For one, I like my eye colour, I like that it's not really plain brown and has multi coloured (green and gold) flakes resulting in my eye colour changing depending on my makeup/clothes. And two, I just feel "off" with coloured contacts. Most of my mom's side of family has green eyes. I've tried green contacts in the past (in my teens) and everyone told me they look very natural on me. I wore them a few times for fun but it's not something I would always do. When it comes to other people, everyone dresses as they like and my position won't change anything. I'm not the biggest fan of coloured contacts that are an unlikley choice for the person's race (race not equal ethnicity btw). It's fine when people wear them for fun (treat it like an accessory, same as makeup) but odd when it's a regular thing or the wearer insists that's their own eye colour, hmmmm....

Anyway, what is your take on colour contacts? Please share in comments.

    I love colored contacts! I wear them all the time but if anyone asks me if they are my real color I tell them no or if they say "your eyes are beautiful" I tell them "thanks you can buy them yourself too if you like them that much." For reference, I am caucasian with blonde hair and I wear grey contacts.

    I think they're neat for costumes or nights out, etc... but I don't like the way a lot of them look. I have brown eyes as well, that lean green, and a lot of them just look totally unnatural on me. I've found one or two that look alright but just don't want to spend the money on them... I liked one from Fresh Look called Carribean Aqua, I think, it turned my eyes a pretty teal shade.

    I am impartial about coloured contacts. I have a hard time wearing my own lenses so color contacts no thanks. I think they're fun. I think it becomes problematic if a person wears them non stop and hates her own hair color

    I agree with u somewhat here Saadeh. I think it more has to do with ur complexion, undertones, hair color, etc.

    I wear grey ones and light brown ones ever so often even though grey isn't the most natural looking for me. It's fun to switch it up...for fun. I just don't like when ppl wear them because they hate their own eye color...or try to be something they r not.
