I've simply never been able to get used to the colours. When I bought my last MacBook I noticed that the brightness at even the lowest level is far too bright for usage just before bed. I ended up buying a 99c app on the MAS called Screen Shade that pretty much just overlays a transparent black over your entire screen. The first night I used it I thought 'well, this was pretty crap' but I've used it pretty much daily since. At night I slowly turn the brightness down and eventually switch screen shade on and adjust down as my eyes get used to it. It works amazingly well and skips the colour part. I realise that flux is probably better for my eyes, but I've never found myself in the habit of using it, whereas Screen Shade made it's way onto the new MacBook almost instantly.
