BNTgirl x Stylenanda 3 Concept Eyes DANGEROUS MATTE LIP COLOR (#807)

Buongiorno Bella, as you may know I went to Italia!

More on Italy later, I’ll be uploading my daily blogs here soon (just editing) like always. Part 1 is up though, and you can watch my vlog here. The only thing constant? My berry red lips. ^^

Today I’ll be reviewing a lipstick from one of the trendiest brands in Korea, Stylenada 3CE’s Dangerous Matte Lip Color in 807.

Milano (Milan, Italy) is one of the fashion capitals of the world, home to Versace, and many other high end brands. And I didn’t want to be less than trendy when I was there, so I used my most winter-spring transition color I had in my travel make up bag – Stylenada 3CE’s Dangerous Matte Lip Color in 807.

I loved it so much in Milan, I even used it in the day in Venezia (Venice, Italy).

Statement lips are always in, and currently a light pop of color on your lips is the poison of choice.  Sometimes it may seem that a lip color is too bold for the day and to be only kept for the night, but I found #807 a middle dark raspberry to be perfect as a Day-Night lip color. It was vibrant enough to wear in the day to not stand out too much but have the focus on, and it was a nice night lip look.

So it’s not only creates a modern trendy look it comes in a angular, square modern casing. I love the case, it feels matte and modern. IT FEELS MATTE!

Bonus- it’s dangerously matte. If it were too glossy it would’ve been too much for a night look and maybe too much for even a day look, but as a matte color it kept the color much more vibrant and subdued (no blinding lights from your lips here).

I literally used it almost exclusively in Italy, it was great and photographed well. The only bummer was that it would last all day if I didn’t eat, but I ate, a lot. But application is easy, one layer and done!

I’d rate this as a 10/10 as a beauty product (viva la matte), I’ll definitely be looking to buy more shades.

You can buy it here for $23.99.

BNTgirl x SNP Animal Masks (Panda, Tiger, Dragon, Otter)!

Masks, oh glorious masks.

Animal masks, whaaaaaaaa.

Recently trending are face masks that are also quite “selfie” able. How exciting.

A skincare essential to everyday (or weekly) skincare routines are definitely face masks! They’re the extra ompf to your routine, the ‘treat yo self’ factor in your life.

I love face masks, since they essentially mean 10-20 minutes of doing absolutely nothing but relaxing.

Today I’ll be reviewing four different face masks from SNP; the Otter Mask (hydration) the Tiger Mask (wrinkles), the Dragon Mask (blemishes) and the Panda Mask (whitening).

The best part of it all, SNP donates a portion of their profits to Korea Animal Protection Society. So you look fun, feel great and help animals in need too.

Feel the animal within?

Spoiler alert I’m listening my favorites first and we’ll go down to my least favorites.

First, my favorite, oh-oh-otter mask! Hydration has been quite scarce lately in the winter months, and this has been my mini oasis in the desert.

The mask gives a instant hydrating lift to the skin and leaves a nice dewy finish. The mast gives off a light floral “aqua” scent, which isn’t too annoying to smell for a long period of time, it’s the opposite in fact.

My second favorite is was panda mask! Although I’m not too keen on the whitening skincare products, I LOVE THIS MASK! It gives off a wonderful citrus scent and it’s the cutest!

is the tiger mask! Out of the four this one may be my favorite “selfie” mask, it was so adorable, rawr! The tiger mask features the anti-wrinkling properties, which I’m not too keen about since I’m 21. But it was so cute!

My least favorite was the dragon mask. I was really excited to try this “blemish” mask, but I found that it didn’t work and I didn’t like this scent the most. 😦 But I still liked selfie-ing around with it.

I’m giving the masks a overall 7/10. Although cute, I didn’t find that the products were too effective in their properties. But they still left nice!

You can get a;

BNTgirl x KONAD Stamping Nail Art

Sometimes I’m sent things I’m pleasantly surprised with.

This time was no exception to that rule, I had literally never heard of stamping previously since I get my nails done at a salon, since gel lasts forever, a month, and I don’t have to worry about it chipping ugly. So I had mixed feelings at the beginning when I saw this product; confused, curious and finally captivated.

Today I’ll be reviewing KONAD Stamping Nail Art Kit!

Nails are the final touches to a woman, you can see her life in her fingers, or that’s what I believe. Short, almost touching the skin? Violinist or Pianist (known by experience), Neon colors, raves. French manicure, classic perfectionist. Your hands and nails tell a lot about the person, especially if they catch your eye. I think they’re the type of final touches that mostly only other women notice but are still appreciated.

I love DIYs. I love things you do with your hands (avid crochet/knitter/drawer) and I was pretty excited about this product once I had figured it out.

As you’ll see in the video, once you get the hand (haha, get it punny) of it, it’s no problem at all. The only problem initially was, speed. You had to act relatively fast in order to produce good results with the stamper, but with some time I got in the hang of it.

The instructions are quite literal since you have to be really quick, step 1: apply polish, step 2: scrape off excess, step 3: stamp on, and step 4: stamp off onto nail.

As you could see in my video, repeat steps 1-4 and you’ll be fine.

Best part? Even if you mess up you can quickly rub away lightly with nail polish remover and start over without ruining your base polish!  Super easy.

It lasts as long as your polish lasts, the design itself stays on once you put the top coat on, it won’t budge and that’s perfect.

Cute designs with minimal effort, and I even got asked by someone where I got my nails done (at home hehe)! Perfect nails done by yourself at home without a salon visit.

I’m giving it a 9/10 on the Doris Scale of Awesomeness, it’s easy and fun!

You can get it here  (~$14) or at their actual site here.
