Happy Friday everyone!
Hope you’re all looking forward to your weekends. I am visiting a friend in Essex and am really excited to have a little holiday away from home. I will certainly be taking these three products that landed on my doorstep just a fortnight ago!
I was lucky enough to be sent three of 3INA‘s (pronounced Mee-na) bestsellers. 3INA are a European brand, they’re also paraben and cruelty-free. I was sent: The Highlighter 201, The Longwear Lipstick 503 and The Cream Shadow 313.
I wasn’t sure about the colour of this highlighter when I opened it because it looks quite gold and gold highlighters don’t suit my pale skin, but it’s so gorgeous. It’s not too gold, it’s just pure glowiness – is that a word? It doesn’t leave too much shimmer either and you could build it up to be blinding, or to just enhance your cheekbones. The formula isn’t as creamy as other powder highlighters I’ve used, but I don’t think it actually affects the quality of the product.
I think I have found the perfect nude! This lipstick is a liquid matte, but it’s not too drying. I’m still not too sure about the wand of the lipstick, it’s quite long and it’s tricky to get all the product onto your lips. It is definitely long wearing and lasted through a meal of chicken kiev, very impressive.
The cream shadows claim to be waterproof, and they definitely are – I struggled to get my swatch off my hand. The colour is so pigmented and shimmery. They have a shimmery pink colour too in their collection, but I love this golden colour too. It looks great with other eyeshadow or by itself. You can also use it as a highlight, if you really want your other half to wear sunglasses on your date.
I love the cases for these products, they’re really simplistic and clean. The 3INA logo contrasted against the black matte packaging looks really cute in my make up bag. They feel really well made too. The only thing I could say, would be that I’d love to have a mirror in the highlighter compact but that’s no biggie. These bestsellers are really lovely products and I’ve enjoyed playing with them. In the pictures above you can see my mini make up look I did with the three products.
Overall, I actually really loved these products. And they are so affordable, make sure you try them out!
Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you’ve tried any of these.
