✿ THE SAEM : Saemmul Under eye marker ✿

If you look at the make up looks I usually do, you would notice I like to highlight the inner corner of my eyes and add eyeliner in the outer corner of my eyes to make them appear brighter and bigger.

The Saem came up with two new pencils, double sided to create this effect under your eyes.
One side is a brown pencil, to draw the line under your outer corner.
This will create a shadow beneath your eye, and create the illusion of a shadow of your lashes.
The second side is a powder, which you use the inner corner of your eyes.
It will brighten up your eyes, create a more awakened look and overall will make your eyes appear bigger.

Both pencils come with the same brown pencil and then you have the choice with either a shimmery gold, or a matte white.

Both of them are really easy to use, and are very handy (especially on the go).
The pencils are waterproof, and though the powder isn't, it's still pretty good and will stay in place for 2 to 3 hours.

What I'm wearing and comments :

★ Black cap with silver studs : A bit heavy, but I love the edgy look it gives me ~Super Animal Temple
★ Laces tank top : Such a nice tank top, I love the see through-ness of the top, which is quite sexy without being (I think) vulgar :) ~Super Animal Temple
★ Golden studs black sweater : This sweater is so beautiful and chic, but oh so damn warm for the weather here. But it is a great touch and I loved how it matched the sneakers  ~Super Animal Temple
★ Faux leather skirt : I love this skirt so much, the studs around the waist are a nice details, and it fits me perfectly. I wish it didn't wrinkle, but there's no way around it with faux leather... ~Super Animal Temple

✿ THE SAEM : Waterproof pencil eyeliners ✿

 Continuing on testing the brand The Saem, I picked up their waterproof pencil eyeliners. They are the same price range, as the ones from Etude House, and their packaging is also pretty similar except for the fact that The Saem's pencils have a little bit of glitters, which let you understand that it probably contains some shimmers ;)
 But, they are not retractable, and you will have to sharpen them.
 They come in three colors. 
A very dark green/brown, it has a kind of metallic look, with some shimmers.
A deep black with a tiny bit of shimmers.
And a brown one, pretty red-ish, also with a little shimmer.
 They all glide on super easily, the formula is creamy and smooth. Handy and give you an even line.
It's smudge-able and you can definitely create a beautiful smokey eye with it.
Waterproof too, but not too hard to hard to remove at night. A bi-phase eye make up remover will do the trick without having to rub too hard.
