Hi Agar21. Welcome to Lens 101.

Here's a picture of a young lady wearing Solotica contact lenses. I think they're Quartzos, but I'm not 100% positive.

http://www.lens101.com/color-contact-lenses/91913-what-most-beautiful-natural-colored-lens-any-has-ever-seen.html

Do a search on Lens 101 for Soloticas and you'll find more pictures. Just click on "Search" in the blue banner on the top of this page.

When you say "mel" you mean "melon" as in the color right? I've heard that abbreviation before. I don't know why they use three letters when they can be some much clearer with five. It's not like saying "PMMA" instead of "polymethyl methacrylate."

You know, when I look at the picture posted above, the lenses look more honey brown than melon green, although they do look kinda sorta green, don't you think?

Those contacts are the Solotica Hidrocharme Mel/Honey color. I know because I read that girls blog a couple months back when I was deciding what color to by my contacts in, lol. Here is the link to her blog:
http://www.vuthy.com/blog/2008/11/18/solotica-hidrocharme-mel-and-hidrocor-ocre/

Solotica's mel/honey color shows up greenish in brown eyes because the contacts have a yellow tint. Yellow tinted contacts in brown eyes make them appear greenish.

Ah, so that's why they were called "Melon" in another thread.

Does anyone have a picture of just the contact lenses so we can see this yellow tint?

You can look on the website wrlens.com under the blog section and they have pictures of the contacts at the bottom I think. I have the Nc mels, which on my very dark eyese look like a dark gray-green. I also just got the NC icemint color which looks like a light gray-green on me and I have the quartos which are pretty scary on my dark eyes and brown complexion because they are very ,very light.

So agar21. Did you get the colored contacts you were asking about here? Would you mind posting a picture? What color contacts are we talking about here?

Yes, they do have a greenish tinge to them, Scienceguy, you're right.

Default I have the Quartzo lenses.........

I have only worn them once and the color is way to light for me. Don't get me wrong the color is beautiful but when I put them on they tend to look like zombie eyes on me. They also look very fake because of the pupil hole. Most Solotica lenses have a feathered pupil hole that looks more natural but these lenses do not. When I worn them I just felt like I was a walking billboard that said "FAKE". The color on me is like mint ice cream (if you can imagine that) they are not gray at all on dark eyes. I was told to wear them at night and they would look better but I have not had that chance yet. You can read my thread "My Colored Contact Review" for other pictures of lenses that I have.

Honestly in that picture to contact lens doesn't look too bad. The pattern of colors looks natural and because your eyes are a very dark brown, you don't really see through the pupil hole so much. I think they look nice.

That picture doesn't look to bad, even with an extreme close up. Still, if you want to try something else, maybe you can look around Lens.com. All you have to do is click the red banner at the top of this page and you will be taken to their website.

I don't know, I think the contact lens looks pretty good close up. Would you mind posting a picture of your face with the contacts in? We can get a better idea how they look from a more natural distance.

I just received my Quartzo's and this is what I have to say about them. They look extremely real and beautiful in pictures, that it is kind of scary how real they look!!! Now in person it is the total opposite. They look a little bulgy in person, color is not the same as in pictures. They are not very attractive at all in person. I have yet to wear them all day but they also seemed to dry up quickly for the couple hrs I had them on. My mom was the first to see these in person and according to her I look like a blind person or a werewolf/zombie. I would say these lenses seem to be created more for photography purposes maybe then to be worn in person??? I dont know its just they look unbeleivably different in person than when photographed. Anyone else notice this with Quartzos or perhaps other Soloticas?

Also just to add all of those videos you see on youtube or pics you see with flash photography are exactly what quartzos look like. They look amazing and greenish blue gorgeous color. Now if you are interested in Quartzos please know they look nothing like this in person. Infact they do not even seem like the same lenses, it's rather weird.

This would have been a good place to start a new thread, oozie. That way the message would have been at the top and people wouldn't have to scroll down past 20 other posts to get to this one.
Now, about your post. I'm sorry those lenses didn't work out for you. I hope you didn't spend a lot of money on them that you won't get back.

Take a look around this forum and look at the pictures. Hopefully you will find another kind you can try.

Thanks Nutradude. I did try to start a thread but since I'm new I wasnt sure how to do that. Yeah with shipping I spent about 130 for the lenses. The worst part is they are not comfortable and dry my eyes out soo bad. Even after I took them off it took about an hr for my eyes to feel normal again.

Wow, that's a shame about those lenses, Oozie. I hope you find something better.

Meanwhile, if you want to start a new thread just go to Lens101.com and click on whatever category you want to put your post in. Then just click the button that says "New Thread." Simple as that.

Sorry to read about your trouble, oozie. You're not going to give up on contact lenses, are you?

Hi Oozie. I hope you're able to find some contact lenses that are comfortable and moist. Do you need some advice about what brand to try next?

While you think about that, here's how to start a new thread in this section.

First go to the main page at www.lens101.com, and then scroll down until you see "Color Contact Lenses" in blue. Click on that, and on the next page, click on "New Thread." That's on the left side of the page below the sub-categories like
"Acuvue 2 Colours - Enhancers" & "Expressions Accents".
