Fan of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment? Want a Cheaper Alternative

Are you a fan of these babies? I am just completely obsess with them and could not get enough!
I like how you open the tube and it just smells like fresh lemons. It's completely moisturizing to dry, chapped lips! However, at retail price of $22.50 it totally burns a hole in your pocket.

I'd like to introduce you to a cheaper alternative, as you all know from my previous post regarding The Saem: Ally's Ajell Dewy Blossom Lipstick. The reason why I gave it a try was because my friend was obsessed with their chap stick. The other day I was able to try some and was totally amazed at how similar these products are! Yes, it's another Saem, The Saem: Petit Ajell Sweet Lip Care.

The only downside of this product is the fact that it doesn't come in numerous colors like Fresh. However, still available with a couple of options such as natural or a hint of tint. But, with these babies costing you $4.11 USD ( Depending on currency rate.) Why would it really matter? It will make the hole in your pocket way smaller! Plus, it leaves your lips smelling like gummy bears.

Interested? you can get them here.

The Saem: Ally's Ajell Dewy Blossom Lipstick Review

Recently, I've gone on a little crazy purchasing cosmetics & a bunch of things from Korea. I've stumbled upon this brand through a friend of mine who's a fan of their chap stick (She's already on her second tube!). I thought to myself if, their chap stick is great possibly their lipstick would be great also? Well, here are my thoughts regarding this lipstick.

Packaging: Are you the type of person who likes to slip your lipstick for retouch, in your purse? with this packaging, you wouldn't have to worry that it would fall apart and ruin your bag. It comes in a  peachy sturdy hard plastic casing that makes a loud click,when it's being placed together. Perfect way to reassure you that your bag won't get smears all over the place! 

Swatch on arm.

Color: Rose pink with flecks of silver sparkles. (Actual color for purchase would be: 01 however, the rest is in korean and I have no abilities to translate it.) Originally, the whole line consists of three colors unforntunately, they are sold out of  03 & 06 on Gmarket. Also, to reach an opacity of the picture that I have posted it would take a couple of swipes. 

Texture: If you are a fan of the Revlon Lip Butters, I'd have to say the texture of this lipstick is almost comparable to those lip butters.

Moisture: I have pretty dry lips and I find that this lipstick does not outline the flaws of dry lips like some other lipsticks that I own.

How long would it last you with a couple of kisses and sips of a drink? After four kisses or four sips from a drink it would leave tinted pink lips unless, you completely wipe it off or give it a boost of retouching.

Overall my love for this product: 4/5

If you'd like to purchase this product I was able to get it from here: The Saem: Ally's Ajell Dewy Blossom Lipstick .  It's currently on sale for  $4.53 USD.

If you have tried it out let me know what you think about it by the comments below or, how do you like this posting? What can I do to make it better? Thanks for reading!

Personal Definition of Blogging

Out of nowhere all of a sudden, why have I started blogging? I remember the days where I would sit there and just browse through beautiful pages after pages of those who are successful with their blogs
( I still do that till this day!) . I would sit there and tell myself, Oh how I wish I can do that! It seems like they have so much fun out of it and learn so many things each and everyday. You're probably wondering what can you possibly learn? Isn't it the readers who learn from the bloggers? I'm pretty sure that is not completely true! As a blogger it is your responsibility to learn about your reader's likes and dislikes. Ever worked for retail and heard of the quote " the customer is always right?" well, I'd like to say the readers in this case are always RIGHT. Without, your reader's support the blog that you're creating would not be successful. In my case, I'm a total Newbie in this blogging world, I'd like to learn how to make this blog interesting to my readers, possibly become friends with my readers? (It's always nice to make more friends instead of enemies =] ). We can all learn oh so much from one another! What I know you possibly won't know, and what you know I possibly won't know. So, let me learn from you guys on how to make this RIGHT.  Please feel free to leave as many comments as your heart desires!
