A YEAR IN KBEAUTY : THE 15 MOST CREATIVE CONCEPTS OF 2014

Published January 2, 2015 by Beauty-full Dreams

I only tried a couple of novelties this year so I can’t write a top 10 of the best/my favorite products of 2014. But I followed the news closely so I’m totally able to show you the most creative concepts of the year !

Here we go :

Gokmul Care Creamy Cleansing Masque

gok1

gok2

A thick creamy cleanser filled with rice, walnut, lemon, papaya and chamomille that doubles as a daily scrub and can also be used as a pore-tightening pack 😉

 

Etude House  Every Month Cleansing Foams

every2

Because a line of 12 different cleansers designed to follow your skin needs month after month is just brillant ! More detailed info here

 

Shara Shara Lemon Tea Pore Stick

shsh1

shsh2

This cute little stick has great powers : it clears the skin thanks to the AHA contained in its lemon, lime, orange and apple extracts, absorbs sebum and has a lemon-scented cooling effect 🙂

 

Etude House Sparkling Toc!s All-In-One Gel

ehsparklingtocs

Detox your skin in 7 days thanks to the carbonic acid contained in sparkling water and vitamin C from lemon water ! More on this here

 

eSpoir Nude Liquid Powder

espnude

This moisturizing liquid foundation turns into a soft powder once applied, evening out the skin color and texture. And it also has sebum-control properties. A light-weight trick for a flawess skin 😉

 

The SAEM Eco Soul 90° Mascara

Finally a mascara that’s easy to use at any angle ! Regular mascaras can be such a pain when doing the outer corner lashes 😦 Bend the Eco Soul 90° Mascara at 15° for the whole eye, at 45° for the outer corner lashes and under lashes and at 90° to use as a curler ^-^

 

Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Soothing Balm

nrbalm2

This stick brings relief to dehydrated skins with its moisturizing sea water and sea plant extracts. Easy to carry around, the icing on the cake is that you can use it either before make up or over your makeup for a quick water boost to your heat-suffering skin ❤

 

Missha UV Cushion Base SPF50+

msh1

A variation of the oh-so-popular cushion products ;p In this DIY version, you don’t just clip a pact inside a case and press, you build it almost from a to z :

Son&Park Glow Ring Foundation

The “My Love From The Star” craze made the makeup items used in this drama extremely popular and Son&Park Glow Ring Foundation is one of them. I lke the 2-in-1 concept with the foundation on one end and a brush to spread it evenly on your face on the other end.

 

Skinfood Super Butter

sfbutter

This one almost ended up in my next post, but its concept is more fun & adequate than plain weird so here it is 🙂 A cream and a mask chock-full of shea butter, cacao butter and palm tree butter sold in butter containers 😀 Trivia : the logo & packaging strongly resemble a French butter brand called “Président” ^^

 

Milky Dress One Second Hair Fixer,

mdresshair

a mascara-like clear styling gel to tame any rebel hair or hair strand and keep it in place 🙂

 

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher

2cool1

2cool3

 

A moisturizing liquid blusher with 40% of water packed in a surf-theme box with names like Beach Break, Surf’s Up and Lava Martini, Too Cool For School knows me too well !!

 

Milky Dress Lip Powder Chalk

mdresschalk

mdresschalk3

mdresschalk2

My very own favorite ! Inside the tube, a chalk-like powder that melts on your lips and become a lip tint 😀 I love this concept and the colors (Pink Chu, Dear Coral & Soul Red) look lovely ❤

 

Milky Dress Vita C+ Powder,

mdressvitac

a medecine-looking item that will cure your skin’s lack of energy ^^ Simply mix a bit of the vitamin C powder with your usual skin care or mix it with water and use it with a mask sheet 🙂

 

JejuBaram Ice Cream Packs

These Ice Cream Packs are probably the greatest concept of 2014 ❤ There aren’t called “Ice Cream” just because of their similar texture, yummy colors or because you keep them in the freezer. They’re called “Ice Cream” because they come by special shipment in a polystyrene box, surrounded by ice packs to keep them cold and that the low temperature is the key to their great efficiency 😀 Unfortunately, due to this, they’re not sold outside Korea 😦

These were my creative crushes of 2014 ! What do you think of them, did you spot 1 or 2 items you’d like to try ? What are your own crushes of the past year ?
