If you have read my previous posts then you should already be familiar with 3INA Makeup however I now have the opportunity to share with you a selection of their most coveted cult favourites.
Even if you haven’t seen my last post you may still recognise the brand name from Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards 2017, as their Cream Eyeshadow 312 was shortlisted. Passionate about affordable luxury for all 3INA already have a whopping 600 products! The brand is relatively new to the scene but unlike some, their aim is not to take a “one size fits all” when it comes to makeup. They previously launched a UV range which I think is quiet adventurous so you can tell that they are keen to be creative with their range.
I am going to share with you three products which were voted as their most original, enduring and unique so I hope you enjoy!
The Cream Eyeshadow “313” (£8.95)
This is not only paraben and cruelty free but also waterproof. I swatched this and it had dried within five minutes to a foiled effect (which I love!). 3INA Makeup were not joking when they said waterproof as despite having an oil based remover, this was quite challenging to take off. Definitely can not wait to try this for a full day as I image it is going to be very long wearing.
The Highlighter “201” (£10.95)
You know I love my highlighters and so I was particularly excited when I saw this. It is paraben, cruelty free and vegan! There is a blush version in a pink which also looks like it would be really nice on many skin tones. I found this really interesting as it is more like a silky smooth balm compared to what I thought so my usual skin texture wasn’t highlighted when I used it. There also wasn’t a need to “break in” the highlighter by rubbing off the top layer which I find with some other brands.
Longwear Lipstick “500” (£7.95)
Usually I am a nude lip person and the reason for this is because bold colours on full lips really stand out. When I wear nude shades for a really long time I always want to go bold so it was really nice to see this shade included. For medium to deep tones I would say that this is a great go-to classic red shade as it is a bit deeper than what I usually see from brands. By deeper I mean a half shade darker than something like MAC Ruby Woo which is very nice however it comes off much brighter on me compared to fairer skin tones. If you do have a fairer tone then I would probably say that this is more of an evening shade for you. This dries down very quickly and is only mildly drying but you would expect that for a longwear lipstick I found I have no transfer or discomfort when wearing it either which is exactly how I like it. You don’t want to apply too thin a layer otherwise you won’t get the smoothness in coverage the applicator does seemed to provide the right amount. Initially I wiped some product back into the container as I thought I may have provided too much but I was wrong.
Overall I would say that with quality and price considered, this is a really affordable range. The highlighter in particular I would purchase in other shades if there were more because it is really nice. As the brand is only one year old I am certain that we can expect all of their ranges to increase over time which is exciting.
