BNTgirl x CATALINA GEO GEL EYELINER

Sometimes you get a product and you think to yourself, FINALLY!

Finally, I’m trying a gel eyeliner! These used to be all the rage in South Korea, and they still are popular. I was too heavily invested in my liquid eyeliners to ever try them.

But today I’ll be reviewing CATALINA GEO GEL EYELINER! YAY!

p1170258

The top part of the cap is actually a brush inside, but the brush is a bit soft, and it’s easier to apply the eyeliner with a slightly stiffer brush.

The eyeliner actually applies really well and smoothly. The gel makes it smooth application and allows me to tightline really well and easily.

The application of a basic tightline only takes like 30 seconds with it, and I can see why people enjoy using it so much.

p1170255

It makes a great tightliner product, but not a really good winged eyeliner maker. The product is too smudgy, the eyeliner kind of rubs onto the bottom of the eye. As you can see in the picture above, on the bottom of my eye, the eyeliner definitely smudged downwards.

However, overall the eyeliner is a 8/10. It works really well as a tightliner, just not to make a winged eyeliner.

BNTgirl x LAFINE VEGETABLE DEEP CLEANSING CREAM

Gotta remove the make up somehow right?

I’m a true believer in a deep cleansing as it’s not always easy to remove every ounce of make up on your face, especially if you have multiple layers ( cream, sunscreen, primer, foundation, and foundation)!

So sometimes it’s good to double cleanse. What it is, is to go through multiple steps in order to make sure you have a clean slate at the end of the day.

Today I’ll be reviewing LAFINE VEGETABLE DEEP CLEANSING CREAM.

p1170262

Today I’ll be reviewing a step 1 of a deep cleansing routine.

Basically it removes the initial layer of make up, but it won’t fully remove itself and the product, after initially cleansing you’ll need to do a second cleanser to remove it fully.

It smells nice, like cucumbers and a fresh salad on your face. I just don’t like the texture.

p1170263

Overall it removes all the make up fine on the face, but the face it leaves the face feeling greasy makes me feel icky. It basically ensures you that you’ll need to a second cleanse after using it. Probably a oil based cleanser.

Unfortunately, I don’t like to do a double cleanse, and therefore I won’t be naturally inclined to enjoy the product naturally.

But overall, I found that it works well enough to remove the initial layer of make up, it just needs a second cleanser.

I’d rate it a 6/10.

BNTgirl x Hansaeng Cosmetics RIN Bi-gyeol Yun Cream

Nothing like a new face cream to try.

As it transitions from summer to fall, face creams trend to transition, from lighter ones to heavier ones. As the face is oily in the summer and more dry in the winter.

Today I’ll be reviewing Hansaeng Cosmetics RIN Bi-gyeol Yun Cream!

p1170264

It’s a beautiful cream in a orange glass jar, and it feels just as luxurious as it looks. And it looks pretty freaking fine.

Look at that photo, doesn’t it just look super nice? Well it is.

p1170267

The cream itself is a light orange, it’s almost a cream colored orange. It looks and feels soft. The cream blends right into your skin and I’ve been using it mostly as my night moisturizer, replacing my Kicho cream that I’ve been using.

The jar itself isn’t one of the cheap tacky glass jars either, keeping to it’s luxurious feel, the jar has a night weight to it. Nothing like a container that feels right in the hand.

It sort of lasts 24 hours ( the entire day) after I apply it at night I don’t use any other moisturizer in the morning.

It doesn’t leave my face feeling oily, instead really well hydrated. It’s almost like a light summer cream but with the hydration of a winter cream!

I found it to be the perfect transition from summer cream.

Overall it’s a solid cream 8/10. It’s really great to use, and it feels as great as it looks. My skin hasn’t been breaking out either.

Bntgirl x THELAVICOS Nutrition Hydro Gel Mask

Hello!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’m back with my favorite type of Asian beauty! Face masks!

Today I’ll be reviewing THELAVICOS Nutrition Hydro Gel Mask.

p1170269

I’m falling into fall currently. All the leaves are so beautiful but my face is combination, so it’s getting super dry right about now.

So I was able to test it while I went to the Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston, Texas. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Like a adult Disney for jobs and women in computer science.

Anyways the night before my conference I was on a plane for 5 hours, and experience a two hour layover, needless to say my skin was dry and very unhappy. I also had two interviews the next day?

So it was mask time! Mask time!

photo_2016-10-24_22-11-21

It was a mask that really stuck to the face so I was able to work on a project while masking, it says to do it for 20-30minutes but I did it for almost a hour (lost track of time) and when I peeled it off my face definitely felt rehydrated.

I was ready for my interviews at GHC16!

photo_2016-10-24_22-11-25

Overall it was a very good mask, and I thought it had multiple properties to make it a really great mask. It adhered to my face well and gave me the moisture I needed. I also looked great for the rest of the day, new LinkedIn photo yayuhhh!

Rating it a 9/10. I love this mask! Can’t wait to buy more.

BNTgirl x BEIGE CHUU HARD FINISH EYE BROW

Nothing gets me in the world like good eyebrow products.

So today I’m pretty excited to review; BEIGE CHUU HARD FINISH EYE BROW.


I always wanted to try the shisedo one, but I never got the chance after Anastasia brow wiz changed the world, and then the promade gel.

I got the shade dark brown.

It’s a hard brow product so it abheres to the oils on your face so it’ll last all day and night, and perhaps forever. That’s awesome. 

While testing it for the month, some days I was so impressed with the longevity in Californian heat that I just took a picture of my brows. WHEN I WAS DRUNK.

YEAH! I liked it that much.


It’s a fantastic brow product if you want to insure you’ll still have brows after crazy water rides in Universal Studios Hollywood, or anything. I think I truly tested it in California.

It totally rised above any challenges I threw at it. My brows lasted 16+ hours and it never smudged off.

Sometimes I have issues with the Anastasia products where water will melt it off my face. But BEIGE’s hard brow pencil definitely stuck on.

Totally awesome.

Light application.


Harder application with a full face (surviving weather in Atlanta, Georgia):


You can apply as much or as little as you want. I love that you can control how much you use.

It’s a fantastic brow product that I’ll definitely use up until it stubs out.

Can’t wait to finish it.

Rating this a 10/10. It’s a keeper, it’s very portable and very easy to use.

BNTgirl x CATALINA Geo Auto Lip Liner

Wazzahhhh! Back at it again, another blog post! 

Sometimes things goes well sometimes it doesn’t. Today I’ll be reviewing CATALINA Geo Auto Lip liner. 


At first glance it looks super similar to the eyeliner I just reviewed, the only difference is the bottom stripe which indicated the color. And I definitely wouldn’t use red eyeliner.

The product itself comes in a fun twistable pencil like thing like the eyeliner. The only difference is the product inside the pencil casing.


I got the shade ‘exotic red’ it’s a cool toned darker red.

And the color itself, I still don’t know how I feel about it. But the application of it is smooth and easy with the pencil tip. You can exactly outline your lips.


This me in LA traffic with it on. Super precise application.

However, this is me after one greasy meal. Mongolian BBQ why you do this. So good it so greasy. Heart attack in a picture, but so yummy.


After:


Completely gone, the lipstick completely came off. Even though it felt drying on the lips, it did not abhere to my lips whatsoever.

Thinking about it later, it might just be better simply as its’ name, a lip liner. 

Yeah it’s probably a solid lip liner, not good as a full lipstick. So my bad, testing it as a lipstick and not a lip liner.

So in the end if I were to rate it as a lip liner, 8/10. The area where it would’ve lined my lips is completely in tact.

But I would say 10/10 do not use as a lipstick.

BNTgirl x CATALINA GEO Auto Gel Eye Liner

Ayooo girllll~~~

It’s been a while since I did a make up review and today I’ll be doing a summer one!

Yeah I know it’s now late summer, but better late than never on a summer splash of color!

Today I’ll be reviewing CATALINA GEO Auto Gel Eye Liner


Gel eyeliners used to be the thing in Korean beauty. It still is, but it used to be the it product. Still great for everyday usable and durability.

It gonna last long!

The most surprising thing to me is that blue summer eyeliner is a thing, I feel like it’s been a thing forever. But I’ve tried it once or twice before, and I, uh, look like a cheap hooker when I wear it. I just don’t think I can rock the blue eyeliner, but you can judge me. But maybe I should’ve tried to use it as a eyeshadow instead. C’est la vie.

The color I got is shine blue, it’s a shimmer pale blue color great for the summer.


It’s a super pretty blue, in fact my favorite color is blue, but like I said, I don’t think the color is for me.

We’ll see it now.

First, naked eyes….ohhhh so naked!


I got eyebags for days! But as you can see naked eyeballs.

Second, with the blue eyeliner.


As you can see I’ve used it as the accent color for my under eyelids and it looks kind of cool. Kind of edge-y and summer fresh.

But I don’t know, I don’t think I can ever rock the look.

But for the gel eyeliner itself, it comes in multiple shades including a very wearable black. Totally rockable. 

Overall the formula is a solid gel one and it’ll last all day if you wear it out, I couldn’t try it all day because I couldn’t bear to be seen like that all day. BUT the hand sample line I drew in the earlier photo definitely stayed. It took a lot of Lancôme bi-facil to rub that off. 

In the end, I’d rate this pretty strongly. It comes in a cool screw top pencil so no sharpener required. Just keep rotating the bottom handle clockwise for more product! 

Solid 8/10. For the product itself, I’m still nifty about the color.

BNTgirl x MAXCLINIC CIRMAGE Lifiting stick

The product I’m about to review has received some cray hype online. If you haven’t seen it, there’s a video of the older Asian woman using this and literally LIFTING the wrinkles and fine lines from her face. You can google it. There are literally hundreds of videos online. Also YouTube videos and reviews. It’s a serious hype. So I was surprised when I got it from BNTNews, but good surprised.

The video is epic, EPIC.

Today I’ll be reviewing MAXCLINIC’s CIRMAGE.


But I don’t have those wrinkles, to uh, show you the awesome affects of it.

I did, however, use it on my dad. LOL. Unfortunately I’m not at privy to show those pics of him, but I can discuss how it did affect him.

So that’s going to be my review, just a summary of what I saw visually happen to his face, because mine doesn’t have any.

Also include some fine ass pictures.

SAMSUNG CSC

This is what it looks like inside.

For the motions, you’re suppose to lift and rub your face with it, to relieve the wrinkles.

I made some pictures for the demonstrations of what I did on my dad.

Attack the under eye bags!

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Attack the fatty areas to lift!

Now it did produce some light affects on my skin personally, but not anything too noticeable, so the before after pictures would be silly.

But for my dad, who has crazyyyyy wrinkles (60 y/o Asian man ) it totally lifted and smoothing his skin out!

He really loved how youthful it made him, it definitely smoothed out the fine lines in his face, and instead of many fine lines under his eyes, it turned into one big puffy skin area. A big improvement!

Unfortunately, his thicker lines/wrinkles could not be tamed.

A downside of the product is also it’s stickiness. I definitely wouldn’t use it on a everyday basis, but I definitely could see my dad whipping this out right before a family photo next time.

I’m giving this a 7/10. Definitely looks better on people with wrinkles!

BNTgirl x Stylenanda 3CE WHITE MILK PACK TO FOAM

Today I’ll be reviewing a favorite of BNTNews July box!

Ba-dum, I’ll be reviewing 3CE WHITE MILK PACK TO FOAM! 


So who doesn’t like a clay mask that foams? IM THINKING NO ONE!!!

It’s a pretty awesome concept, a product that has 3 functions. You can use it as a cleanser, a clay mask or just a nose mask!

But I pretty much use the clay mask function exclusively only because I love it so much.

It’s a super light clay masks that dries in 5-10 minutes and then lathers up into a foam when you’re washing it off.

SAMSUNG CSC

So I has the soft essentials of a clay mask but also the best part of any cleanser: the foaming. So it’s basically the perfect clay mask for me.

Did I mention it was a super, super soft product. It feels like a soft putty and just spreads all over your face. It smells light.

It could be a cloud. Who’s to say it isn’t?

LET IT FOAM!



It’s just a nice mask.

And it definitely felt like a nice mask to just let it absorb the impurities in my face.

I’d definitely be purchasing it once I finish this. SOON!

I rate this a 9/10. Super enjoyable mask.

BNTgirl x MAXCLINIC Purifying Vitamin Oil Foam + Cloud Embo Massage Brush

Good day everyone!

Today I’ll be reviewing something everyone loves; a good foaming cleanser. Foaming is key.

I’ll be reviewing MAXCLINIC Purifying Vitamin Oil Foam + Cloud Embo Massage Brush. 

SAMSUNG CSC 

It comes in a beautiful blue gel like liquid and it turns into some nice cleanser foam with a little bit of elbow grease and water!

Although I saw elbow grease I just mean I have really weak arms, but once you get some momentum going you can definitely get some nice thick foam onto your face!

The brush itself is superrrrrrr soft, unbelievably soft. Usually face brushes have harder or rougher scrubs for a mini exfoliating action but only in the center of the flower massage brush is only slightly harder.

So I just usually add a pump onto my hand and spread it evenly around my face first. Once I have a nice layer on, I dip my brush into water and in circular motions apply pressure onto my face with the brush.

(Thin layer on)  



As a gel cleanser it works well if you use it as a two part cleansing routine, which means you’ll need another deep cleanser to probably remove more heavy duty make up.

But there are definitely some positives to the cleanser itself.

I really appreciate the vitamin cleanser, and the mini balls of vitamins that burst, it definitely makes my face feel rejuvenated and fresh. 

And I especially love the slight citrus smell, I think I’d buy anything with a citrus smell. One of my favorite scents is the zest of a lemon. 

I tested it out for 2+ weeks and it didn’t break me out and kept my skin looking fresh the entire time.

If you’re looking to try a new *soft* cleanser brush I’d definitely recommend the brush. Such a keeper.

Overall I’d give the product a 7/10.

I love the brush, but I’m not a super fan that it didn’t remove my waterproof make up. But it did remove all my foundation and base make up!
