How To Tell If Your Circle Lenses Are Inside Out?

Hello everyone! <3
I wanted to do a post on the WRONG AND RIGHT way to put in circle lenses. Inner and outer!

There is actually a way to tell if you have been having a hard time trying to figure out the  mystery behind the wrong and right way pf putting in your circle lenses. If you look closely on the inner part of the lens you will see lighter color that is the part that touches your eye, the darker color will be on the outside.

Also when its the right way, the lens appears more circular on the sides, when the wrong way it will be more triangular. In addition to shape, the rim of the lenses usually curves outwards in a way you definitely don't want in your eye (see pic below). If you put in the lenses in the wrong way you may feel a lot of discomfort. It is important to take care of inserting your lenses correctly, so you don't scratch your iris. If you have not had a doctor show you he correct way to insert lenses, and you do it the wrong way, it can really hurt and be uncomfortable. Please take good care with your precious windows to the soul! 

I hope this post helps anyone who is wondering if you are inserting your circle lenses inside out or not.

Mini Sclera Phantasee Black Titan Lens Review + Coupon

Hello Lovelies! VERY excited to do this review since its my FIRST ever MINI SCLERAS. I was scared and intimidated to try them not only since they are my first black lenses but also because they are the BIGGEST lenses I have.

Just a side note that if you are a first time customer and first time wearer of circle lenses you should give E Circle Lenses Library a thorough read that has been organised by Uniqso. For a wise purchase of circle lenses & to prevent problems which may rise when you are wearing circle lenses the first time please read " Circle Contact Lens Guide Part A (pre-shopping) and Circle Contact Lens Guide Part B (After purchase). Here is my personal opinion and findings ! ^-^
NATURAL EYE COLOR: Greenish-grey with yellow center
Base Curve8.6mm
Color TonesBlack
Diameter17mm (WOW!)
Replacement Period6 months
Water Content38%

Very black! I have never looked so much like a doll before, these are AMAZING for the ultimate Uzzlang look.  the center of these lenses is very abrupt and no"blend" but that what also makes these lenses so unique. I natural color peeked out and made my eyes look ever so mysterious and shiny!

These are just awesome. I LOVE big lenses and these are the biggest ever.  Very happy!

When I first put these lenses in, I did not even notice them, they slid right in without any difficulty or stinging. I really liked  that because I usually wait till I'm done with my make up to put lenses in. Some other lenses make my eyes water once I first put them in but not these! I also have to mention that they felt kind of "breathable", giving my eyes oxygen. They started to dry out after a  few hours, so I had to use my rotho c cube eye drops. I would not recommend wearing them for longer than 4 hours at first and let your eyes gradually get used to how big they are. (increasing wear time by an hour every time you wear them)

Not natural, not on my eyes anyways, but if you have dark color eyes these will blend better with you pupil hole. 

I think these lenses are one of the most unique and dolly looking ones ever. Definitely more of a cosplay lens or your ultimate uzzlang lens! I rate then as a 4/5 because I wish the pupil blend was more gradual. You can make a hot and sexy goth look by just adding red lipstick. MUAH

How To Make Fleur De Sel Caramels

When I'm craving an exquisite dessert or want to make a sweet gift for someone this is my go to recipe courtesy of Ina Garten.

Vegetable oil (I use coconut oil spray but you can use any oil that is flavorless like vegetable oil or pam)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup heavy cream
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon fine fleur de sel, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Parchment paper to line the pan and to wrap caramels in
8" x 10" rectangle pan or a square pan close to those dimensions.


To Prep the pan, just line it with foil and parchment paper (you don't have to use foil but I like to), allowing it to drape over 2 sides so you can remove the caramels easier. Brush or spray the lined pan with a flavorless oil or pam.

Gather your ingredients and lets get started!

Boil the sugar.
In a deep saucepan (6 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep), combine 1/4 cup water, the sugar and corn syrup and bring them to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until the mixture is a warm golden brown. Don't stir -- just swirl the pan.

This is the color you want to see, be careful not to burn the sugar. A color a bit darker is also ok , just watch it carefully because it can burn in a blink of an eye.

Heat the cream.

In the meantime, cut up 5 tbsp of butter and combine it with 1 cup of cream and 1 teaspoon of fleur de sel in a small pan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat and set aside.

Finish the caramel.

When the sugar mixture is done, turn off the heat and slowly add the cream mixture to the sugar mixture. Be careful -- it will bubble up VIOLENTLY.

Stir in the vanilla with a wooden spoon and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until the mixture reaches 248 degrees F (firm ball) on a candy thermometer.

Fill the pan.

Very carefully (it's hot!) pour the caramel into the prepared pan and refrigerate for a few hours, until firm. I like to use the technique of high pouring(VERY CAREFULLY). As the caramel falls into the pan, it cools a bit which could be essential to you being able to lift the caramels off your parchment paper once they cool completely. I made these a long time ago and did not use this high pouring technique, so I ended up peeling all the parchment paper piece by piece since it got stuck due to high heat.

Cut the caramel.

When the caramel is cold, pry the sheet from the pan onto a cutting board. Cut the square in half.
Cut into rows, then cut in smaller pieces like and excel sheet about 1/2" by 1" wide. It's easier to cut the caramels if you brush the knife with flavorless oil like corn or vegetable oil.If its taking you a while to cut the caramels, just work with 1/2 of the sheet at a time keeping the other in the fridge. Keeping the caramels cold is essential for you not to get frustrated with the cutting and separating  process. Sprinkle the log pieces with fleur de sel salt as you start to wrap them.

Wrap the candies.

Cut the parchment paper into 4-by-5-inch pieces and wrap each caramel individually, twisting the ends. Store in the refrigerator and serve the caramels chilled. I made mine as gifts, and I used plastic wrap, ribbon and twine to wrap them into little satchels.
