BNTgirl x Too Cool For School DinoPlatz UFO Multibox #21

Wooo I’m back y’all and lets get down to the biz.

I’m back for the 4th season of BNTgirls after being chosen as the best from last season, can you believe it? I can’t. It has been such a thrilling time for me to be blogging. I hope to do it forever, and ever, even when I’m all wrinkly.

Today I’ll be reviewing a much talked about product, even Lisa Eldridge, included it in her haul when she was in Korea recently!

I even made a youtube review for it!

I’ll be reviewing Too Cool For School’s DinoPlatz UFO Multibox in shade 21!

I constantly experience feeling underdressed (yoga leggings + sweaters are my mantra), and then being invited to go out with friends. I don’t even want to be seen outside. This box helps me look a bit more put together, with a fresh face, anyone can look like they’re ready to take on the world, even me. From 0 to flawless in 3.5 seconds (haha more like 5minutes, but you guys get it right?) I look great in a flash and I don’t even have to put too much effort in it. The dinoplatz is officially my Swiss army knife of make up. A carry all/do all for the bogged down busy bee or lazy bee in all of us.

I love Bb foundation cushions, or really the idea of them, especially since I had bought the Missha Magic Cushion, but I had never actually bought a Bb cushion because I had previously thought I invested too much in western brands for them to be worth it. Boy, was I wrong.

This Bb foundation literally feels alien to me, because it’s so awesome. I’m the self proclaimed queen of lazy and I can’t believe I didn’t try this sooner. I love products that work well and do multiple things to decrease my workload. Too Cool of School’s Dinoplatz Multibox literally does multiple things in a box!

Shade 21 is the lighter of two shade options, for skin tone/color references I’m about a NC20 and I use shade Gobi (NC20) in the new NARS all day luminous foundation (review soon!). Shade 21 is a bit light on me but I think I can work it especially if I wear it in the winter when I don’t travel to sunny places. But feel free to use shade 23 if you’re a bit darker (NC25)!

It comes with (obviously) a Bb Foundation, (and not so obviously) an, amazing concealer, lip/blush cream, and a porefiller. I could honestly just use the concealer and Bb cushion and be done with it all.

The Bb foundation and concealer are both especially wondrous. Both feature fantastic finish and flawless coverage. The Bb foundation itself has a medium/high/full coverage finish, covers all complexion flaws and finishes it off with the dewy/glow skin that all Asians strive for. As a added plus like all bb foundations it comes with multiple foundations (multiple of a multifunction box! multiception!). It has whitening properties, SPF 50 +++ PA (that’s right, take that sun rays!!!!!) and even anti wrinkle properties. Dew dew dewy skin wow, very glow, wow, much flawless. I feel like I’m Yoona (from SNSD) in a commercial wearing it, my face feels poreless and flawless. Baby skin? Check. Aegyo? Check. Wink? Double check.

The concealer, oh my goodness, the concealer is absolute perfection. I want a huge jar of this on my desk ASAP, where has this been all my life??? Effortlessly blends softly away into the skin and covers my dark, super dark, very dark eye bags (#englife). It feels light and it stays on forever. I want this forever.

The blush/lip cream is quite buildable, it goes in light but you can build it up to a heavier pinkish shade if you feel like. Like all lip/cheek products it works better as only one of the two products, in this case it’s a much better cheek/blush than it is as a lip product, which isn’t bad anyways since it’s always better to have a nice flush to your cheeks.

But the best part is that your face looks great even after wearing it all day, I took multiple photos showing the transition through my 10 hour school day. Even after a quick 30 minute work out session the make up stayed on (I don’t recommend working out with face make up, but sometimes a girl gotta do what she gotta do, you know?).

10HOURS

So if you’ve been searching for the Swiss Army knife of make up in your life, look know further! Invest yourself in a Multibox ASAP!

BNTgirl x Comelyco JEJU Organic Aloe 95% Gel

Bonsoir! Alo!

I’m back, and I’m sad to say this might be my last BNTBeauty Box series review, good news though, I’ll actually be pairing these reviews with video reviews. So hopefully everyone will get a better sense, or visual, of the product.

First up is one of my favorite products this time in my BNTBeauty Box, it’s Comelyco’s Jeju Organic Aloe 95% Soothing Gel! Aloe is so in, very haute stuff (haha, get it? It’ll help soothe your burnt skin).

First off let’s set the scene, Jeju Island (Hawaii-like but Korean?), sand between our toes and the nice heat of the sun against our skin. Ouch, too much sun maybe? Aloe to the rescue.

As the product states in it’s very informative title, it’s a gel that’s 95% aloe and is from Jeju (organic). Jeju(do) is an Korean island south of the Korean mainland, on the Korean Strait, and is a very popular honeymoon/vacation spot for tourists and nationals alike. The island is suppose to have healing properties, from it’s volcano/volcano mud, and the warmer climate in general.

Almostttttttttttttt paradiseeeeeee~

Don’t you just think about Boys over Flowers as well when you think of Aloe x Jeju?

Plus it’s organic. It contains no;

  • Artificial Colors
  • Parabens
  • Benzopenone
  • Animal raw materials
  • PG
  • PEG
  • formaldehyde

Ecofriendly Aloe is the best aloe, anytime anywhere, be it on the beach on a exotic Korean island or at home (representing the North-East of the USA here). But what does aloe do you may ask?

Now this maybe silly, but you may also ask what does it smell like??? Aloe. I’m not very helpful here but if you go to a bubble tea shop and if they do serve aloe jelly it smells like this! So it also smells like bubble tea….yum. Less sugar-y of course.

But really, most importantly, what does it do for your skin.

Aloe-mazing things.

For the past week, I’ve been majorly stressed; projects, exams, life, lack of sleep etc, the whole lot. It left my skin in pretty bad shape, Comelyco’s Jeju Organic Aloe 95% came in like a present sent from the skincare gods.

In the next few photos I’ll show you in the course of 3 real days how it transformed my skin complexion (dull ->radiant) and how it helped with my acne/redness greatly. Seriously aloe-rrah!

First let’s show my nose, as you can see on the tip there’s a few bumps, small imperfections (mini acne attack) and redness.

Bippity boppity boo-aloe! Nose awesomeness.

Next major pain/acne attack area is my chin.

aloe5

Transforming my skin, one day at a time, you can see how the acne spots and red spots simply disappear, like they were never there to harass me. BNTbeauty Box savior.

Here’s a picture of my overall complexion, see the magic. Bare skin magic. I feel ready to show the world my naked face after aloe-jic happened.

Aloe-rffic!

This aloe gel has been amazing to my face for the last week or so, and I can’t say anymore great things about it, besides it’s wonderful.

But wait, there’s more!

You can buy this skin wonder here for only $5.44. Yes. You read that right. $5.44.

I’m giving this skincare magic in a jar a 10/10.

My full blessing. What’s there to lose? It costs as much a Venti latte from Starbucks, go ahead, enjoy.
