When it’s time to make a statement, you can spend hours and hours writing the perfect speech, or you can just pop in a special pair of colored contact lenses and you can make that statement without even opening your mouth. From thought-provoking designs to spectacularly colorful lenses, there are plenty of colored contacts to help you stand out from the crowd and send a message to the world. Here are five of my favorites and the reasons why I love them, all with a 90-day lifespan once opened so you can wear them again and again so long as you care for them as instructed.
Silver Space Pants Not Included
There are so many options for making brown eyes blue, but among the best are these Fantasy Blue contact lenses which feature a black outer rim, while the main turquoise blue center is speckled with tiny yellow slivers. The ragged outer rim accentuates the brightness of the blue while the yellow slivers add a fantastical texture which will have people gazing deep into your eyes as they fall madly in love with you and dream of being whisked away on a wild adventure through space and time by their hero with the out-of-this-world eyes. Team with large, unlaced military boots, tight black vest and even tighter silver trousers to maximize this effect.
Sex on the Brain (And In Your Eyes)
It seems that these days if you really want to make a statement then you’ve got to get sex in there somewhere. These Alchemy AC/DC contact lenses can certainly help you do that as they feature a combination of the male and female symbols which immediately inspires thoughts of the naughtier kind. Whether your statement is that you like to keep things traditional or that you like a bit of both is totally up to you and the trousers you wear. Though if they’re skin-tight silver pants then be prepared for people to assume the latter.
Unique Geek Chic
There have been some amazing stories created in Japanese manga over the years with some memorable characters, though most of them have the standard huge black eyes which are a little boring (though you can still recreate them if you want with the Big Eye lens selection). Or you could wear these beautiful Hotaru Tomoe contact lenses mimicking the eyes of the Sailor Moon Senshi which are a lovely violet color with lilac highlights which create a unique and unforgettable style for your eyes. Even in a party full of people wearing colored contact lenses, these ones will make you stand out from the crowd as a either a statement of unrelenting beauty or of unrepentant geekiness.
Question what it means to be human with these Bionic Eye contact lenses. You can then practice your robot dance moves and access your inner android with these awesome lenses, and don’t forget to stop suddenly in the middle of doing something and ask inappropriate philosophical questions about what it means to be human, Maybe approach strangers on the subway and ask them, in as monotone a voice as you can muster, what it’s like to cry. I’m sure that will turn out just fine.
I Think, Therefore My Brain Hurts
It’s easy to change the color of your eyes and it’s easy to question the concept of humanity without coming up with any solid answers. However, now it’s easy to both change your eye color and pose philosophical questions regarding the human condition at the same time! By wearing these black and white Barcode contact lenses you can look people square in the eye and wordlessly demand they ponder the consequences of our materialistic and consumer-based society. That they also look really cool is a pure bonus.
