Last Sunday I had the opportunity to learn 2 Japanese makeup look (Cool Beauty & Japanese Idol look) from Takeru Hiro san using BCL products with my BFF aka my sis Jem :D
BCL is a Japanese cosmetics brand and the name BCL is the short form for Beauty Creative Lab. BCL is suitable for fashionable young, working adults who wants to look good. And this is the first time I tried out their products and I am pretty excited to try out as my friend has told be before that their eyebrow and eyeliner is quite nice.
According to him Cool Beauty look are more defined and mature, and it has the characteristics of sharp eyebrow, black eyeliner, volume & curl mascara as opposed to Japanese Idol look that give supernatural look with soft eyebrow, brown eyeliner, volume mascara and plus one point focus (either lips of cheek)
Allow me to share with you my opinion on the BCL products that I had tried in the workshop
Clear Last Pore Cover Face Powder
Very light coverage but it does cover a bit of my pores and brighten up the face.
Browlash EX W Eyebrow Pencil & Liquid
Comes in Natural Brown and Grayish Brown shade
For people who want to have quick touch up with define finishing on their eyebrow, this would be a good one.
Browlash EX W Eyebrow Gel Eyeliner & Powder is a new product coming in to Malaysia.
Comes with 2 shade; Natural Brow and Light Brown.
Finally we have lighter colour eyebrow colour and this powder eyebrow would give a more natural finishing to our brow. My hair colour is pretty light so I have been looking for the correct eyebrow shade to match my hair colour and this 2 shade that they bring in is even lighter than the one I had back home.
Makemania is also a brand under BCL and this is Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow, basically eyeshadow in a pencil form
Bronze Brown and Light brown shade
This is super easy to use, just glide through and blend using brush or finger. Colours is shimmering but very pigmented. This is great to use on the go and small to carry in our handbag. We were told that this is called magic pen because this can use as eyebrow, eyeliner and eyeshadow.
The colour is deep black, very intense.. I like! The unique thing about this eyeliner is that this is waterproof but yet can be removed using warm water!
The brush head had the shape like a marker pen, the brush is soft yet firm.
Over the years from the makeup workshop I attended, I picked up a very important tips that help me when I apply eyeliner or eyehadow which is to always to brush a little bit of loose powder on our eyelid (or if you had your eyeshadow on then it's fine) to create a clean canvas before applying eyeliner/eyebrow colour so that they will stay and will not smudge.
Same goes to our eyebrow, I used to have problem drawing my eyebrow using eyebrow pencil then I came to realised that sometimes our eyebrow is damp (from sweat etc) so the eyebrow colour does not stick on our eyebrow hair. Hence brushing a thin layer of loose powder before applying would let the powder to absorb all the sweat etc before the eyebrow colour can easily 'stick" stick on the eyebrow hair.
Browlash Ex Perfect Macara & Eyeliners is a new product in BCL that recently available in Sasa. Anyone tried this before ? I'm sure this cute pink packaging caught our attention right?
This is a volumised mascara with shimmering brown eyeliner is the tools to create the Japanese idol look.
Brow Lash EX Volume Up Fiber Mascara in Black
I tried this I think this give me more lengthening effect
Takeru Hiro san also brought 2 very nice blusher from BCL unfortunately it's not available in Malaysia yet.
