The best all around lens color I have tried is the Pink lenses from Oakley. I don't really care for the pink color itself, but man... the view is nice through them. As everyone said, there is no perfect lens for every condition. You will need a few. Persimmon lenses will be the most neutral. I just don't like how it tints the trails. $100 for a good pair of goggles is hard. You definitely want to go with spherical lenses and for your budget, that is almost non-existent. I'd just save up some more cash for better goggles. I spent $75 on my Dragon DX a couple of years ago thinking I wanted to save money only to end up buying a $130 pair Shaun White Oakleys. The spherical lenses on the Oakleys makes a world of difference against the non-spherical Dragon DX.

With that said, you can find previous years' Oakleys that are real nice. Look into the A-Frames or Crowbars. If you end up getting more cash for whatever reason, look into the $180 Smith I/O or I/OS. The Smiths have absolutely the best vision I have laid eyes through. Peripheral is niiiiicce. And the lenses are super easy to swap on them. The I/O line comes with and extra lens too
