Default FX Eyes

Hi! I`ve recently discovered the contacts FX Eyes, and would be interested to hear about people who bought these contacts in the past, if you could give your experience with the company, the contacts, and ~approximately how long it took the contacts to get to you, and how much did you love "The Realisticness"? Please & Thank you!

I've never worn FX Eyes, but here what the website says. For one, it says "[An FX Eyes lens] takes us 7-8 weeks to make, orders are done as first come first served to keep the time frame the same for everyone also to insure the lenses are really worked on not just made in a hurry." So it's probably too late to get them in time for the Christmas party.

For $120.00 per pair for toric lenses, they'd better have a very high quality of realism.

Shhyea! They'd better look absolutely awesome for that kind of time and money spent on them.

I just got mine in and i'm not sure if i'm very pleased... they look very large, the pupil hole doesn't really blend, I can't see well out of them, and they're not all that comfortable... don't think they're worth the 460 bucks.

So you paid $460 for those FX Eyes contact lenses and you don't even really like them? That's really too bad. Can you get your money back?

I would think that for that kind of money you should LOVE them. You can buy lenses for forty bucks you you don't LOVE.

Yeah, you really should try to get that 500 dollars back if you can't even see. Let us know if there's anything we can do to help, and if you do get your money back, make sure to share your success story here.

I think that if you spend $500+ on contacts your expectations are much higher and your chances of being unsatisfied is also higher. That's unfortunate that you don't like them. :/ I heard about many other people who don't like them as well searching through these forums.

Default FX Eyes

Hello, I'm new in the forum.
I been wearing colored contacts over 15y. I tried many brands in the market and my favorites was Elegance by Ciba it was hand painted (please don't get confused with Natural Touch by Coppervision it looked pretty fake) unfortunately it's discontinued. Since them I have been looking for lenses could replace the natural looks of Elegance used to give to my eyes but I didn't have any success... I ordered FX Eyes called Adrianna, they took over 5 weeks to send me... When it arrived I got very disappointed with the looks, they looked very different then the pics and videos they display in the website, and when you look close you see it's painted, don't have any deepness, looks flat, the pupils doesn't blend, anyway to make the story short I looked like a zombi wearing them, I mean ready for a Hallowen, scary looks... I sent back to tone down, I don't know what the heck they did but they teared one of the lenses and had to replace... Took over two weeks to send me back the lenses toned down. They looks better but I can't say I like them... They look great in pictures(I'm a fitness model) so sometimes I wear it, but if you looking for lenses that you can wear all day forget about those because they are very tick, the maximum I can handle wearing them is 6h, after that everything start to get blurred and hurt my eyes. Honestly they don't worth the price. I going to try to resell them for half price, because I know I won't use it, I like comfort and natural looks.
Right now I wearing Colorblends, I don't like the results, they blend with my dark eyes but at least they are confortable... Anyway, I just ordered Waicon Trikolor after the reviews, pics and videos I saw, I got very impressed by the natural looks. It gave a hope in to find something similar to my so missed Elegance by Ciba.
I hope my review helped.
I'm glad I found this forum

Agreed and I'm really not sure why durasoft color blends are so popular as I think they are hidious colors. They tend to look muddy. Waicon trikolors are great and approach the look of Elegance lenses. Solotica hidrocharme are also good because they are vibrant yet look natural.

I wear Freshkon colors fusion. They are tricolored quite opaque and vibrant.Also a verrry comfortable lens.

I'm thinking monixbb is referring to FreshLook ColorBlends, because the Durasofts were discontinued awhile ago.

Freshkon Colors? I never heard of those lenses. Do you have any pictures wearing them? Or a website where I can see it?
Thanks

Here's a thread that has a picture of some of those Freshkon lenses. You'll have to scroll down to about the 50th post, though.
