the consensus advice is the correct one and that is
find the one mask that fits the shape your face
the best.

as for colored lenses, i've heard both praise
and not so much praise about them. photographers
seem to like the black skirted masks for their
photographing. some people like one single large
lens in the front; others like windows on the
sides. my 'oceanmaster' low volume (2 lens) mask
fit my face perfectly and the purge feature is
actually *GASP* not a gimmick but a performing
feature that works great--at least for me.

ultimately it's about the fit, everything else
is secondary--and don't let the salespeople
pressure you onto something that doesn't physically
fit you.

best wishes.
