BNTnews x HP&C THELAVICOS Enzyme Washing Powder

Sensitive skin. Balanced pH. Keywords!

All the things I want in a cleanser and more.

Today I’ll be reviewing a product that really impressed me this month from BNTnews, THELAVICOS Enzyme Washing Powder.

Sensitive skin? Worried about that winter dryness? WANT A NEW CLEANSER? Here we go.

It’s a non-irritating washing powder that builds up into a foam and takes off even the most waterproof make up. It’s a pretty kick ass cleanser. I’m honestly the most surprised about how much I loved this washing powder.

All you need to do is put a tsp of it into your palm and just a little bit of water and it’ll foam up. You can just massage it into your face and all your worries disappear. And by worries I mean make up. It just removes all and everything from your face, but gently!

Honestly, these not much to say. You can see the results above, and pictures speak a thousand words. It just completely annihilates all make up, there were nor survivors of make up residue. I’m clean.

It’s a fantastic face cleanser and I would whole heartedly recommend it to everyone.

I’m rating this a 10/10.

Unfortunately for you all, it’s currently not on sale yet, I think I was given a trial product. But when it is…I’ll link it ASAP!

BNTnews x VELY VELY Magic Wand Lip&Eye Hybrid Concealer

EYEBAGS! Yeah, that caught your eyes there didn’t I.

I’m a long time sufferer of eyebags, they attack my face relentlessly because of the lack of sleep in my daily life. I should’ve studied art history in University. I CAN STILL CHANGE MY MAJOR. Jk I can’t.

So needlessly to say I was ready to try the newest product that bntNews sent me. Today I’ll be reviewing VELY VELY Magic Wand Lip&Eye Hybrid Concealer. 

It’s a dual sided/function concealer, it has a liquid side which is suppose to be for the under eye areas and the cream side which is suppose to conceal the lip lines, for a gradient lip look.

The liquid side is a bit lighter than the cream side because it’s meant to “brighten” the eye look.

As you can see the cream side blends right into my skin, it’s like a perfect shade match which is awesome because there’s only one shade available on the site (LOL).

I’m a NC15-NC20.

Here it is blended. Blends right into my skin so that’s pretty solid. 10/10 for shade matching( for me specifically! Good luck everyone else!).

So first I’ll be reviewing the liquid side first.

The applicator is a cute doe foot which allows you to dab as little as you want, because in this case a little definitely goes a long way.

(no concealer)

(concealer application)

And then I just blend it away gently using my ring finger to tap it into my skin.

The liquid concealer pretty much stays the entire day after setting it with some powder. So that’s pretty nice, I would say it’s a medium coverage, because it conceals quite a bit of my bags but they’re sort of still visible.

Now for the cream side, I use it how it was intended here and just to blur out my lip line, so that I can build my own lips or create a nice gradient effect. Again I use my ring finger to stay consistent.

It’s in the shape of a lipstick bullet, SUPER CUTE.

and in my finished look I put on the VELY VELY butter crayon in shade Dragonfruit which you’ll see in my next review.

I think it does a pretty solid job for what it’s intended for.

It conceals my eye bags and my lip line well and in the end I look pretty decent.

So I’m giving this a solid 9.5/10, it’s not my HG concealer, but you know I’ll still grab for it daily anyways.

You can find it here or here.

BNTgirls Review: Stylenanda 3CE CREAMY CHEEK STICK

Yoo-hoo everyone, yodeleh yee hoo!

During this past month I’ve been trying Stylenanda 3CE CREAMY CHEEK STICK from the mountains of Zakopane in Poland, to the hot and dry Madrid (Spain). I’ve been traveling a lot, and it’s safe to say I’ve tested this product thoroughly.

This product works on temperature extremes and is basically sweat proof.

I went on 6 hour trek up the mountains, the blush endured; sweat, cold temperatures and overall mountaineering. This was at 4C at the top of the mountains.

Few days later I was in Madrid, during a heat wave (40C) and the same blush stayed the same.

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-25

I had friends ask me constantly if I was flushed from the mountaineering or from the crazy heat. Either temperature extremes left my face blush-ful.

So what you basically read is that it’s extremely waterproof from sweat from activities or just from the blistering heat. It’s fantastic.

It applies easily too! Just apply two streaks across each cheek bone and blend it out with your fingers and then it’s done! All day blush, in a minute. Lazy girl in me loves this, especially since I’m traveling around Europe and I have to travel make up light.

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-13 photo_2015-07-12_17-14-10

The make up applies like a cream but has a nice natural-esque powder finish. Sort of brings a glow to your face.
After a long 10 hour day, it’s still visible!

photo_2015-07-12_17-14-04

A solid summer blush that’s easy to use! 8/10.

Prestige BN Gel Mask EX

Masks masks masks, they’re like my shots nowadays, but healthier.

Both go onto my face right? Haha.

Today I’ll be reviewing Prestige BN Gel Mask EX. Ohhh so fancy.

 

The packaging is cute and luxurious looking, especially the ingredients. Bird’s nest and gold combo again. Au au au (chemical symbol, haha.)

The mask is suppose to leave your skin glowing and nourished, it makes your face its baby.

The mask is made as a gel mask and split into two parts, the top half of your face and the bottom half. I suppose this method insures that the user has a better fitted mask so it does it’s job properly.

The mask has one job and that’s to make your face beautiful!

Let’s try the mask.

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-24

Sorry for the potato quality photo, I used my iPhone, which is suppose to be good, but whatever.

As you can see from the photo the mask fit my face really well. It felt nice on and au so luxurious.

Anytime I have a gel mask on my face I feel like it’s much more nicer than a paper mask anyways. Seems like they put more energy into this mask. ENERGIZE MY FACE!

Anyways, I left it on my face for a nice 30 minutes before I went to bed instead of a night cream, and it left my face feeling just as hydrated as a night cream would. But without any greasy residue!

photo_2015-06-09_14-24-29

It was a nice mask that was fairly effective in nourishing my face as it’s baby. I’d likely use their services again to help me with my face.

I’d rate this as a solid 8/10 mask. It does what I want it to do and felt nice.

You can get it here for $23.

GEO Bella Brown Circle Lens

Woo today I’ll be reviewing my first pair of circle lenses which is one of the more popular circle lenses available.

I purchased mine from LoveShoppingHolics.com. From the recommendation of fellow BBlogger and BNTgirl Kim (you can read more of her on her own blog here).

Though I’ve really enjoyed the circle lenses themselves I think the best part of the lenses were the freebies I got!

As the title reads I got the GEO Bella Brown circle lenses which have;

  • 14mm diameter
  • 38% water content
  • 8.6 base curve
  • 1 year life span

SAMSUNG CSC

I’ve had them for about a year now, and I’ve worn them out quite a bit (clubbing, dinner etc) and I always get compliments on them.

10394779_10152883006507704_4939872480854505611_n

I feel like I may have gotten bit too wide lenses, but they also enhance the doe-eyed look effect. So it’s not too terribly bad, but still look cute/alien like.

SAMSUNG CSC

They feel really comfortable on too, I think the longest I’ve worn them was for about 8 hours straight and they didn’t dry out my eyes! So 10/10 for comfort.

SAMSUNG CSC

The color matched my iris as well as I have light brown eyes so people didn’t notice too much of a difference and that’s what matters the most, just cuter eyes. 10/10 color.

Overall I think if you’re looking for a cute/aegyo eye look I’d definitely recommend them. I can’t wait to try more circle lenses! I’d rate these a 10/10. They did what I wanted to do and more, I’ve really enjoyed having these for a year!

If you’re looking for circle lenses I’d recommend you get them at LoveShoppingHolics! It was fast shipping + awesome freebies!

Bises, Doris

 

 

BNTgirl x Too Cool for School Art Class by Rodin

Ohhhhh spring’s here and summer’s around the corner, what does that mean?! Contouring/bronzer forever!

Looking for the perfect summer glow/chiseled face can be difficult, I know, and today I’ll be reviewing a Korean Contouring product – Art Class by Rodin by Too Cool For School.

SAMSUNG CSC

Like always, I have to mention their super cute packaging, they obviously know how to perfect detailing, and it shows in their product.

SAMSUNG CSC

Now I’ve previously tried and disliked Benefit Hoola, and I currently use NARS Paloma on the daily, just for some background in what I’ve fiddled with. Both super popular contouring kits, and now the TCFS Art Class by Rodin is popular as well, I’ve seen SSIN use it a lot on her youtube channel.

Unlike western faces, I need contouring, or else my cheekbones and nose would be lost to the roundness of my egg shaped face. So I’m quite invested in finding the perfect contouring palette.

Most important thing about contouring is the naturalness, you don’t want to seem really fakely chiseled, or orange. So I was really excited to see that the TCFS kit was a more light contouring kit, so you could build the color up rather than mess up one time and be done with it.

SAMSUNG CSC

Compared to my NARS kit,  like I said above, it was less pigmented, but still worked well. It looked very natural.

To use the product itself, you can use the darkest color to fill in the hollows of your cheek, then the middle color to blend out. But personally I just swirl my blush/contour brush in the pan and use the three colors together to shade my face.

How do I contour you might ask? Well I’ll upload a brief video later (ft. both my NARS paloma kit and the TCFS Art Class by Rodin), I usually start by finding the hollows of my cheeks and then creating a 3 figure shape on my face afterwards.

Before:

SAMSUNG CSC

After:

SAMSUNG CSC

Overall I find the TCFS Art Class by Rodin to be a fine contouring kit especially for asian skin tones like myself. I didn’t find the color too bronzing/orange/fake tan ish and was extremely natural. No make up make up, amiright? You want to look flawless without too much effort. I only really used 3-5 products in this look and it was mostly by Too Cool for School.

SAMSUNG CSC

I would recommend this as a beginner contouring tool as it’s easy to build up in color naturally without looking fake, so it’s cute and easy to use.

I’d rate this a solid 8/10. Easy and practical to use.

As a beginner product I find it a nice product to use and if you’re interested you can buy it herefor $20.

BNTgirl x SNP’s Bird’s Nest Aqua Eye Patch

Hello eyebags, I mean hello everyone.

It’s finals week, some of my friends are finished with school some of the are suffering the same fate as I. Woe is I with my eyebags.

Like all uni students, I suffer from the constant attack of lack of sleep making my eye bags terrible. But they only get worse as finals approach.

So I was really excited to see I got a eye mask in my box from BNTnews in my April box! Today I’ll be reviewing SNP’s Bird’s Nest Aqua Eye Patch!

SAMSUNG CSC

Like the name suggests it contains swiftlet nest extracts and hyaluronic acid. Both of which help rehydrate and nourish the eye bags to reduce the puffyness, darkness, and the fine lines around the eyes.

The eye masks themselves are quite liquidy and are made with a gel like mask so it has a nice cooling effect when put on the eyes.

SAMSUNG CSC

Now eyebags should not be confused with agaeyo eyes, these are not cute and just make you look extremely sleep deprived and exhausted.

Sorry for the ugly eye bag photos coming up, I can’t help the fact I’m genetically prone to them.

The instructions are easy, put them on for 20-30 minutes, but apparently I put them on backwards a few times, awks.

Before:

SAMSUNG CSC

During:

SAMSUNG CSC

After:

SAMSUNG CSC

Unforunately for me, my eyebags may have been too much for them, as I didn’t really notice too much of a difference on myself. But the other BNTgirls seemed to have enjoyed them.

Each box contains 60 pieces, so maybe if I do it a lot more, 20 more times or so I’ll notice a difference. But for now I only noticed a bit of a immediate difference.

I rate this product a 6/10. I really wanted them to work but it seemed to have only mildly worked. But something is better than nothing!

If you want to try them out, you can buy it here for $14.03

BNTgirl x KONAD Classic Jeans Nail Polish

Bonjour tout le monde! (Hello everyone!)

I’m back again with another Konad product, today I’ll be reviewing their Classic Jeans Nail Polish in shades Midnight Blue Jeans and Turkey Blue Jeans(yum turkeys, I want a sandwich now).

SAMSUNG CSC

I was excited about the two colors that I got because my favorite color is actually blue, so I was pretty excited about two blue shades. A sexy dark blue and a more spring-y blue shade. Wow very hip, much trendy.

It’s funny because I’m very a very anti-pants person, most of my closet are yoga leggings and dresses. But I found this to be a fun nail polish regardless.

When I first saw them I was pretty confused because they were described as a jean like nail product but on the outside it looked glittery. I found out later it dries out in a cool matte and textured polish. Quite a fun transformation.

SAMSUNG CSC

To my surprise the nail polish themselves are quite opaque, and only needed one coat for a full polish look, so it was a really easy DIY. Bonus –  they look good.

Note to all people applying nail polish on top of wood surfaces; use a paper inbetween, nail polish remover will ruin the veneer of the wood.

SAMSUNG CSC

On my hand I have midnight blue on all fingers except my ring finger for which I used the turkey blue as a accent color.

SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC

It’s easy to apply, it lasts quite a long while, and it looks cool.

So if you’re looking for a trendy easy nail polish (and you’re sick of OPI/Essie) free feel to try a Korean Nail polish brand – Konad!

BNTgirl x Too cool for school Glossy Blaster Tint favorite kit Review

Starting strong and then saving the best for last is the way to go isn’t it?

Another awesome lip product this month is Too cool for school Glossy Blaster Tint favorite kit! It’s by one of the cutest Korean brands (super cute packaging!) it’s a tint and it’s glossy! It’s a two in one product and lazy make up Doris proof!

SAM_3298

I’ll have a video up soon describing how I use it in video, but for now make do with a lot of photos!

SAM_3389

Inside the super cute pull out box is three shades No.1 (CHIC RED) No.2(GIDDY ROSE) and No.5 (MERRY TANGERINE).

Guess which one’s my favorite? Of course the orange! I’m a coral lip color type of person myself, and the orange one is the perfect coral-y color on!

Previously with Korean lip tints/gradients it was a multiple step process; concealer + tint + gloss, but now it’s really a one step process, apply + blur with this kit. And I love that it’s so easy, you don’t even need a mirror  with this lip tint!

SAM_3301

All I do is apply to the inner part of my upper + lower lip and then blur out the edges with a finger and tada a easy gradient lip! I usually apply it in the car going to school, and since I don’t even need a mirror to apply I can rest my eyes while going to school, it’s that easy!

After application you don’t really have to worry about it (and that’s the best part) as it fades and tints your lips leaving a loving reminder that you did have a lip color on today. Easy touch up if you want, and if you don’t there’s still some color!

Besides the easy gradient lip you can do with the kit, you can also do a full lip color, one full application around your lips and it’s done. The lip tints have high pigmentation and one application is all you really need for a full colored lip!

But blah blah blah, you just want to see the pictures, sorry, without further ado here they are.

No.1 (Chic Red)

No.2 (Giddy Rose)

No.5 (Merry Tangerine)

SAM_3389

I’ve truly loved these easy lip tints. Awesome for a lazy on the go student for a cute fresh look. (Can you believe I don’t have any make up on above minus my brows? See the next review for the secret to my flawless complexion, wow very radiant wow) .

I’m giving this a solid 10/10.

And at $25USD for 3 colors, seems like a crazy bargain, you can get here.

Or try the red one here for $15.

BNTgirl x It’s SKIN PRESTIGE BN CREAM EX

Welcome back to my bloggg.

Today I’ll be reviewing It’s SKIN PRESTIGE BN CREAM EX! It’s a face cream that contains Swift nest and pure gold extracts (super fancy ingredients yo).

SAMSUNG CSC

For those who don’t know, Swift Nest is a ingredient (a very expensive one, a nest can go for $2500USD, baller lifestyle) that is used to make a very very very expensive soup. The soup itself is suppose to help with a lot of properties to help with health in general.

I didn’t really know what the gold did besides make a cream more fancier previously, so I did some googling and found that it’s suppose to help rejuvenate the skin and that gold face masks are really popular in Japan. That healthy glow.

So already this just sounds like a expensive product, and if the packaging says anything it definitely feels expensive.

SAMSUNG CSC

The container itself is really cool. Check out my pics, I can’t really describe it but the lid goes within the container and creates a really cool effect when opening it.

For the product, I found it smelled really similar to Pond’s face cream, a light perfumed scent. It absorbs really fast into the skin. I love the fact that it’s light and absorbent. Nothing’s better than a face cream that doesn’t sit in the face, it goes right into the skin, so you know the skin’s absorbing something.

I really like it as a face cream, my major winter problem has been dry skin, and it has taken care of that. Ohhh hydrated skin = happy skin. Look at my naked skin, wow much radiance wow, but I think that’s mostly in large part due to a different skincare product you’ll see in my blog soon!

I’ve been liking it however it hasn’t been “wow”ing me especially at the price point so I’m giving it a 7/10.

You can buy it here for $55.
