#UntBeautyTalk | BB Creams, CC Creams and more - oh my!

* This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/UNT.

One of my favorite things to do as a beauty blogger (but honestly don't get to do enough of!) is to try out products from different countries. It's so cool to see what's hot and trendy somewhere else. Unfortunately, due to shipping costs, sometimes they're a little hard to get which is why I'm so excited to introduce UNT

UNT is a skincare and cosmetics brand from Taiwan that believes everyone deserves healthy and comfortable skin - at an affordable price (here, here!) and they're on their way to the US! Fun tidbit: UNT is short for "Untitled" because they believe beauty cannot be represented by one verbal expression alone. UNT also feels that they cannot relate to just one form of beauty. Sounds like a brand I could get behind!

Up first, we have UNT's Nail Lacquer in Smitten (a bright pink), Sun Envy: Top Coat and Sun Envy: Gel Effect Lacquer in Party Animal (a pale, neon coral). There are over 200 different shades in the nail lacquer collection. The Sun Envy Gel Effect and Top Coat work together to get a nice, long-lasting color and a gel effect without a lamp. Start by applying two-three coats of the Gel Effect Polish and then top with the Top Coat. The top coat will cure from the sunlight to a shiny, hard, dent-proof mani.

Next up we have the Mineraluxe BB Cream, Naked Truth CC Cream, Eye Define Liquid Eyeliner and the Brow Master Dual-Ended Brow Pencil (all seen in the look above).
  • Mineraluxe BB Cream SPF30 (in Natural - Buy) - This BB cream is a lightweight, mineral-based cream suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin. According to the site, there's a super-fine clay mineral called Illite that bridges over the pores to create a thin veil instead of filling them in like other BB creams. Unfortunately, the shade was a little too dark for me from the start and then oxidized and got even darker so I wasn't able to really wear it-wear it but besides the shade difference, I really liked it. It was very creamy and light on my skin. My skin actually felt softer while it was on and after which was a nice change. I'd definitely try this again in my shade.
  • Naked Truth CC Cream (in Fair - Buy) - Now this, this is my jam! Ultra-sheer with just the right amount of coverage to camo over redness but still let your natural skin breathe. I just dot this all over my face and then buff it in with a foundation buffer for a nice, light, flawless finish.
  • Eye Define Liquid Eyeliner (Buy) - The swatches below don't begin to even show how black this is. I would say this is very comparable to Kat Von D's Tattoo Eyeliner. Unfortunately, this doesn't dry matte and stays a little satin-y but man, oh man, the staying power on this baby is crazy. It has a nice flexible fiber tip that allows you to get the fleekiest flick for your cat eyes but with a little pressure can create a nice, bold line. Overall, I'm very impressed with this!
  • Brow Master Dual-Ended Brow Pencil (Buy) - I thought every brow pencil was created (somewhat) equal until I popped this open. One end is your typical spoolie brush to brush and blend out your pencil but the other end is a triangle-shaped pencil that helps you create a realistic hair stroke, add volume and dimension to your brows. I have no clue what's in this but it. did. not. budge. once I had it on.
