The SAEM Amazon Acaiberry Moist Cream Review

Published August 15, 2015 by Beauty-full Dreams

thesaemamazonacaiberrymoistcream0

We all know that finding the right moisturizer can turn into a real quest, so grab your hat & your whip and follow me to South America in search of the legendary Amazon Acaiberry Moist Cream 😀

thesaemamazonacaiberrymoistcream1

thesaemamazonacaiberrymoistcream2

thesaemamazonacaiberrymoistcream3

The SAEM Amazon Acaiberry Moist Cream is actually a thick white-ish gel that exhales a strong berry smell, most probably of acai berries. I say “most probably” because, believe it or not, I’ve never been face to face with real acai berries 😉 I know, for an exotic cream hunter, it’s not that cool… What’s cool is the sensation on your face when you apply it : it feels nice & refreshing and the gel texture is quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving a slight powdery touch 😀

thesaemamazonacaiberrymoistcream4

You might experience a little tingling once all the gel is absorbed but don’t worry, it’s barely perceptible and it will disappear after a minute or so. It’s due to the light lifting effect of the cream 😉 But it’s perfectly safe to use on sensitive skins 🙂

 

The SAEM Amazon Acaiberry Moist Cream in a nutshell :

Nice Texture ? Yes, a non-sticky, non-greasy gel

Pleasant smell ? YES !! Smells like teen spirit  fresh blackcurrants ^^

Comfortable ? Yes ! You won’t even feel it ^^

Effective ? Yes, especially for a gel 😀

Good value ? Definitely ! Less than $10 for a 48ml moisturizing cream filled with exotic berries is a real bargain 😀

The SAEM Amazon Acaiberry Moist Cream is a good gel moisturizer that will keep your skin hydrated without any sticky or greasy residue. Although it may not be enough for seriously dry skins, its intoxicating fresh acai berry smell will make you give it a try ^^

Gmarket Haul : Etude House, Tony Moly, Holika Holika & The SAEM <3

Published March 21, 2015 by Beauty-full Dreams

Hello, my Beauties ! I know I still owe you a post on Laneige’s new Two Tone Lip Bar but I’ve just received my parcel from Gmarket and I can’t resist showing you my latest purchases ❤

gmmarch1

 (as usual, click to see the big picture 😉 )

gmmarch2

I haven’t bought Korean novelties for quite a while so I’m super excited to try these ones 😀

The SAEM items were on sale so I ordered a new Urban Eco Harakeke Cream Ex for my mum, she really loves this cream 🙂

tsharakeke

 

tsharakeke2

 

tsharakeke3

 

Since I had to restock my Holika Holika Petit BB Moisture, I also added the Clearing version (it’s supposed to keep your face sebum-free) and the Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner in #08 Pink Topaz

gmmarch-hh

These are the new packagings of Holika Holika Petit BB, the old one looked like this :

 

I’ve had my eyes on the Pink Topaz eyeliner for a long while but each time I ordered, it was already sold-out. Now I got it at last !

gmmarch-hh2

 

Tony Moly had Spring sales so I bought the Magic Food Banana Hand Milk and, from Tony Moly’s brand new 2015 Spring/Summer Makeup Collection, a Kiss Lover Style Lipstick (SG02 – Pink Light) and 3 Delight Dalcom Glosses (Pineapple, Tangerine & Grape) 😀

gmmarch-tm

I also got the Perfect Lip& Eye Remover as a gift ^^

tmbanana2

Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk truly looks like a real banana 😀 And it has the wonderful smell of a ripe banana too !

tmbanana3

The top is made of hard plastic but the body is made of rubber so it feels close to holding an actual banana too 🙂

 

And now, swatches time !

Tony Moly Kiss Lover Style Lipstick SG02 is a beautiful strawberry pink with a nice glossy finish 😀

My new “Delight” 😉

Tony Moly Delight Dalcom Glosses are very comfortable to wear on your lips, they have beautiful, barely pigmented colors, nice matching fruit scents, they’re absolutely not sticky and they have an amazing mirror shine ❤

On the last 2 pics, you can also see Holika Holika Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner – Pink Topaz 😉

 

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for : Etude House Color In Liquid Lips ! And Etude House gave me a Play Nail polish and Face Blur sample with it 😀

gmmarch-eh

After much hesitation, I picked the OR201 shade, Juicy In Juice. Originally, I wanted to buy the PP501 (Purple In Candy) one but I was afraid it would turn out too flashy.

ehcolor2

ehcolor1

ehcolor3

Ready for the swatches ? ;p

ehcolor4

As close as I tried to get to its true color, it’s actually slightly more pinkish in real life.

ehcolor5

ehcolor6

Etude House Color In Liquid Lips OR201 Juicy In Juice in all its glory : a gorgeous peach-coral shade, loud, opaque, pigmented and almost neon, I absolutely love it ❤ And it feels amazing on your lips, as if you’re wearing nothing yet it keeps them moisturized ^-^

ehcolor7

(for those who don’t know yet, all my pics are taken without flash, indoor and under natural light 😉 )

 

Last but not least, Etude House Play Nails #6 Innocent Strawberry Syrup :

ehplay

It’s a pretty sheer nail polish so it took 3 layers to get this result. I’m glad I got to try it, this shade is beautiful, it’s very easy to apply and it has a super glossy finish !

 

As you can guess, I’m so happy with this order !! Once again Etude House color charts & pics were totally off, the Color In Liquid Lips shades are so much more beautiful in real life ❤ Now that I know, I’ll probably buy more of them later ^^ Also, I have a major crush on Tony Moly’s 2015 Spring Summer lipsticks & glosses, so maybe more of them too in my next order 😉 And some Etude House Play Nails would be nice too 😀

 

Reviews coming soon !

 

Trend Spotted : The SAEM And Missha Semi-Permanent Makeup

Published January 10, 2015 by Beauty-full Dreams

Our lives are getting busier and busier as our need/desire to maintain a perfect image 24/7 is stronger than ever. Incompatible, you say ? Well, not for The SAEM and Missha who both decided to tackle these issues with a powerful tool : semi-permanent makeup !

Inspired by the huge success of Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack, The SAEM came up with a very similar product called Saemmul Wrapping Tint :

ths1

ths2

 

Available in Redberry and Sweet Orange, Saemmul Wrapping Tint works exactly like Berrisom Tint Pack, apply a thick even layer, wait for 5-10 minutes and peel off 🙂

 

ths3

 

But The SAEM didn’t stop here, they’re also releasing Eco Soul Henna Marker Tint, a line of 5 extra long-lasting tints loaded with Henna extracts in a 75% water base !

 

ths4

 

ths5

01 Custom Orange, 02 Red Lettering, 03 Irezumi* Red, 04 Mini Henna Pink, 05 Color De Berry

(*Irezumi is a kind of traditional Japanese tattoo)

 

Drawing, filling, reshaping your eyebrows everyday can become a real chore so once you get the right look, might as well make it last as long as possible, right ? 😉 Hence the Eco Soul Henna Marker Brow, a waterproof self-tanning eyebrow pen that lasts 3 days !

ths6

 

ths7

 

Missha pushed the concept even further, creating the 7 Days Tinted Eyebrow, a brand new eyebrow pen that’s meant to last through the whole week !

msh1

Draw your eyebrows only once a week and get a precise and natural look thanks to its fine brush and carefully chosen shades (Marroon Brown & Sinopia Brown) 😀

And what about you, my dear beauty-addicts, would you use these items ? What do you think about doing your eyebrows once a week ? Do you want other brands to follow this trend and release more semi-permanent products ?

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

theseam90

theseam90b

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

nrbalm1

 

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

son

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

jj2

jj4

jj3

jj5

jj6

 

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 ?

 

Next time : when creativity is pushed to the max, strange things happen… like the 5 weirdest concepts of 2014 😀
