can someone please explain me why the dices have all the same color, when you have the chance to use only at least 8 dices? it was not better paint the dices half blue and half red for example?

The short answer is probably production costs. Its cheaper if they are all the same.

I like the color of the dice its easy on the eyes in a way I'm not sure red would be.

Having different colored dice would have been nice for the purposes of rolling simultaneously in a shared space.

You could always take some acrylic paint and fill the symbols in red on half your dice - it's easy enough, you can use a bit of kitchen towel wadded over a couple of times to wipe the paint off the raised surfaces to leave it only in the icons, or simply scratch it off after it's dry.
