the SAEM Saemmul Real Tint #03

HI! Today I am going to do a review of one of my go to tints, the SAEM Saemmul Real Tint in Shade #03 Pink. I bought this from Althea Philippines, and Im really loving this tint. Sooo, lets start :)

The packaging is so cute and handy, I can put it inside my bag or pocket and it doesnt leak. Sometimes I worry about placing it the wrong way but it never leaked out of the tube so its really nicely designed for me.

1. Simple moist gel texture.
2. Refreshing fragrance in the 3 real vivid color tints.
3. It goes effortlessly smooth and even on the lips.

Color Option
#1 Red
#2 Orange
#3 Pink


Koreans really have a way with naming their products. Most of them are just numbered. I really dont mind though. I only go with either Reds or Pinks anyways, plus I dont really buy or have a lot of lip products. But I wont deny my impulse buying skills haha.

I sometimes confuse myself with the shade. On the bottle it comes of as a dark red, but on the lips thats how you knew its really pink. I could have gone with red, but I want that youthful and chic look with gradient lips and usually its with pink so I got this shade instead.

How to use
Release appropriate amount on the center of lips and spread gently as making gradation.

The applicator that it came with is the usual type which makes application easier. Applying the tint on the lips is easy as well. Sometimes I would use my finger to tap all over to achieve the gradient style, or if Im too lazy just dot my lips and smack smack and Im done!


Now on to the swatches.

When I woke up and took a bath, suprisingly the stain was still there. Even after I run it with water and rubbed, the stain still stayed which is quite shocking as I will admit, this doesnt really last that long. Although it leaves a faint stain on the lips which is still pretty, I would have loved if it had stayed longer than a couple drinks.

When applied fully on the lips, this it how it looks. Dont worry about seeing some shine though as it fades over time and you'll be left with a beautiful stain on the lips.

And now for some shameless selfies with this tint from The SAEM. Photos were taken inside with low light so it is slightly brighter and more pink, outside with sunlight it looks more of  a dark pink bordering red, but still its pretty. Yeppuda :3 예쁘다

Just Bead It! Keyring (First Impressions/Product Review)

Im a sucker for all things cute and kawaii, and upon seeing these really cute items from Just Bead It, I decided that I need one in my life. If you live in Australia, then you might have heard of this online shop already. But no worries, Ill go ahead and introduce the shop and the owner beforehand :)

Handmake bead creations. Use them as a decoration, keyring, bag tag, or anything! All your favourite designs!

The shop is owned by Michelle Sommerville , who I shall say is very kind and accommodating.  I got the package very fast (International Shipping) and was shipped and packed carefully. The item was definitely secure and safe!

Its here! Yay.

And here's what I got! Haha. Its really really super cute. And its green too. The design is that of an alien, which is really cool. I love how sturdy the product is. It had me wondering how it was made because I was really amazed just by looking at this cutie.

The size of the product was also perfect. It fits in my hand but its not too big. Just the right size for a key ring. And since I dont want to damage my new key ring, I decided to hang it on my backpack instead. Now I have a cute bag tag hanging on my backpack. Perfect!

Now aside from the product itself, there were a bunch of stuff included in the package as well. The owner really did a good job of preparing her items because she even included an iron paper for product maintenance. Yey. But Im pretty sure it wont come in handy yet because I am making sure this little alien here is safe. But if ever something bad happens to it, like it does break off, then putting it back to place will not be a problem anymore.

Have I mentioned how amazing the seller is? She even included a small letter in the parcel, which is very nice. I had no idea that the product is waterproof too, but reading it on the note she included I was once again amazed with the product. Plus, a step by step guide on how to fix the item if ever it does break is also included. Nice customer service I should say :)

A close up of the note!

Need I say more? I guarantee that this item will be favorite in no time at all. It makes me want to get more designs :3 Not to mention the items are very very affordable. And when I say affordable, I mean it. You be the judge. For the price that you'll be paying, you'll get more than what you paid for because of the quality, uniqueness and amazing customer service.

Now before you hop over to check out her designs I'd like to point out something very important for me, as well as for International buyers as well. I live in the Philippines, and our post sucks. It would usually take a month for any international package to reach me. Plus, I need to get it from our local post office and pay $2-$3 for tax. So imagine my shock when I arrived home from work late night and saw a parcel from Australia! It took only 2 weeks (more or less) and it was delivered to my house (I didnt even pay for any tax!). Im not really sure what happened or what postage the seller used, but I am really really happy with this service. It is really value for money at its absolute best.

Aside from keyrings, she also makes magnets and desk decorations. If youre interested (I know you will be), head over to Just Bead It. She has lots of designs to choose from. Plus, she has this Custom Design product as well which I find really really cool. 

With Christmas just around the corner, I think I just found the perfect gift for my family! This Custom Design Bead Portrait is really amazing!! I want one for myself and Ill hang it on my room.

Custom Iron-Bead Portraits and Landscapes - $40.00 (Just under A4 size, sizes and prices vary).

And to make it even better, she is having a 15% off up until Christmas when you spend $10 or more in her Etsy store! Just use the code: JBI2015

Review: Silk Secrets Alo Vera Oil Control Sheet

I have oily face almost all the time, so when I checked my nearest Watson's shop to buy blotting paper, I got curious about this product. I normally go for the Clean and Clear Blotting Paper, but this one is cheaper (and Im a sucker for cheap things hoho). SO I decided to try it out. Plus its got aloe vera, which I think is good for the skin. Or hair haha.

Its really really cheap, like less than $1 (Php 35.00 more or less), and its got 100 sheets already! I bought this almost a month ago and I still have a lot! 

The packaging itself is really simple and cool. Its in green, which of course is Aloe Vera. It comes in the generic paper style packaging with a locking thingy, so you can easily keep it back in place without having the contents of the product going loose. Its easy to carry and its also small in size, perfect for carrying anytime anywhere.

  • Removes oil and dirt from skin
  • Keeps your face shine-free
  • Soft and gentle
  • So handy, you can use it anytime, anywhere to freshen up


- cheap
- available locally (Watson's)
- with Aloe Vera
- handy and easy to use 

- very thin
- easily tears up (I once rubbed it on my face a tad to hard and it tore easily)

The product itself does its job of removing oil on my face. But, since I have been using the Clean and Clear one, I can definitely spot the difference between the two. But for the price I paid, plus the Aloe Vera, I can say that this product is worth the money I paid for. Although I cant really say that much about the Aloe Vera on the product, but Im just so happy that I got a cheaper blotting paper that does the job as it is.
