BOUGHT FROM: The Saem

For those who aren’t familiar, “aegyo-sal” are the tear bags under your eyes. No, they are not eye bags. Eye bags and Tear bags are two different things. Eye bags droop lower. Tear bags are tighter, are only a few millimeters below your lower water line, and are not always visible, thus the creation of products like this. Some only have it when they smile, while some have obvious aegyo sal even if they don’t move a muscle.

Tear bags are also seen as trendy and cute nowadays as it can make you look youthful and younger, plus the eyes look bigger. These bags are a huge trend in East Asia, to the point that there’s now even a surgery to achieve the look. Still don’t understand the difference? Here’s a small illustration on my eye:

Anyway. So yes, I’ll be review an aegyo-sal product today. Personally, I only bought this for review purposes because I already am born with chunky tear bags. Using this kind of product daily just exaggerates it haha Photo shown below shows my natural aegyo sal, no enhancing products used.

If I use any highlighting products on those tear bags, they would probably be standing out so much haha

You’ll see the difference between Tear Bags and Eye Bags better in a little while. Keep reading if you’re still interested 🙂

As for the packaging, this is a thin pen-type of product with two ends. Very much like Etude House’s Cute Eyes Maker, but thinner.

image

There’s also a sticker that states the shade of the pencil. This line has 2 colours, if I’m not mistaken. White and Pink.

image

One end has a pencil like this:

image

And according to the casing, this pencil side is “Step 1: Shadow Liner”

image

It’s of a matte brown colour, and the tip is both thin and rounded for smooth application.

image

To apply, take the pencil and from the innter corner of your eye, start drawing a line on where you want your aegyo sal to be, or where your tear bag line lays.

image

If you don’t know where to draw or where your tear bag line is, squint your eyes. Draw the line under the fat that will show.

After drawing, blend the outer corner for a more natural look.

I swatched it under my eye to show you how it works without the help of the highlighter yet. Also, do note that I used this with just a bare face. If you have concealer and BB or foundation on, your eyes won’t look as tired/dark. I only did this on bare face so the difference between Tear Bags and Eye Bags would still be obvious.

Left Side of Photo = No Product Applied
Right Side of Photo = Shadow Applied

image

Notice how the right side of the photo has aegyo sal that already looks plumper because of the shadow pencil that eccentuated where it lies.

Before moving on, I thought that the photo above can also clearly show the difference between Tear Bags and Eye Bags. So in case you still don’t get it, here’s another illustration.

image

Okay, back to the packaging lol

The other end has a sponge tip like this:

image

The white shimmer shadow is dispensed inside the lid. When your screw the cap back on, the black sponge tip picks up some of the product. From then on, you just apply them on your aegyo-sal.

According to the casing, this side is “Step 2: Plumping Liner”

image

The shadow itself is very creamy, pigmented and is of a sparkly white colour.

image

It goes on smoothly as well and it sticks onto the skin pretty decently.

For application, glide the sponge tip between your waterline and the tear bag line that you drew earlier. Fill in the gap between your water line and the drawn line.

image

With those simple steps, you’ve succesfully drawn your own aegyo-sal. 🙂

I have a swatch of this white shadow as well, both on the back of my hand and on my eye alongside the shadow liner.

At the back of my hand:

image

image

When applied under the eyes:
(Left Side of Photo- No Product
Right Side of Photo- Shadow+Highlight)

image

Like I said a while ago, the white shadow is very pigmented. It is flashy and strong, so if you want a more natural sheen, take a Q-tip and rub some off. (I didn’t wipe off some of the shadow in the photo to show you how flashy it can look)

Longevity is okay. It doesn’t budge unless you touch it. The thing that I haven’t tested but am interested in knowing, is how this would perform if tears get in contact with it lol I can’t force myself to cry, so I have no idea how to test this area huhu

Overall, this product is okay yeah and it’s useful for those who like the aegyo sal look. Application is smooth and easy, while the colours are pigmented. But why spend on this when you can use an eyebrow pencil and any highlighting shadow that you have lol Leave your thoughts on aegyo sal down below and let me know whether or not the look is a yay or nay for you ;D

*EDIT: There is now a gold version of this product.
