The brand is behind the convincing look that has fans in Jenner, Paris Hilton and many beauty bloggers, according to retailer Luxe Lenses.

The price range starts around $34.99 for non-prescription lenses, which can be worn up to a year. Prescription lenses, including shipping costs, are around $110. Orders are placed through international distributors.

Compared to other cosmetic lenses on the market, some beauty vlogger testimonials claim the lenses feel thinner, lighter and appear more natural-looking than other color contact lenses on the market.

The realness of the lens color can be attributed to the pattern of the lenses which is produced in a dot matrix format rather than lines.

Other celebrities this year have pulled off a transformation with flying colors. Kendall Jenner snapped a selfie wearing the cosmetic enhancement and described it as "trippy" on Instagram. Selena Gomez also went blue.

At the 2016 Met Gala on May 2 in New York City, Jenner's brother-in-law Kanye West emerged alongside his wife, Kim Kardashian, Jenner's sister, with an accessory that sparkled more than his bedazzled Balmain jacket.

His dark brown eyes were bright blue.
