3INA review and make-up look!

Hey guys,

This week I have created a make-up look using some of 3INA's (pronounced MINA) best sellers. I first heard about 3INA when I was in London around November for a girly weekend, and decided to pop into their Covent Garden branch. I was quite impressed with the range and affordability, but due to time restraints, only walked away with a few bits and bobs. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength and when I was sent some products for review, I was ecstatic as I couldn't wait to try them out properly. 

I was sent three of their bestsellers, and it's pretty clear to see why they are sold out on the website. I received The Cream Eyeshadow in 312 (£8.95), The Longwear Lipstick in 505 (£7.95) and The Highlighter in 201 (£10.95). I had been playing around with them for a few days and decided to use them all to create a make-up look. 



Swatches from top to bottom: The Highlighter in 201, The Cream Eyeshadow in 312, The Longer Lipstick in 505.
I have to say I was really impressed, in particular with The Cream Eyeshadow. It dries to a powder and has fine particles of glitter and shimmer mixed in, which gives the beautiful effect of glitter, without the hassle of gluing it on and the aftermath of glitter everywhere! I think out of the whole range this blew me away the most and for £8.95 was an absolute bargain. The effect it gives is comparable to the Stila Magnificent Metals, but at a third of the price! I am planning on buying quite a few of these for my kit as they are long lasting and there is a range of 18 colours! These can also be used as a highlighter on the cheekbone to add that extra dimension to your make-up.

The next item I loved was The Longwear Lipstick. Long-lasting, pigmented, and a decent liquid lipstick. The formula is creamy and still has a little bit of movement so it doesn't completely dry your lips out. The colour I was sent, in 505, is the perfect brick colour and suits me to a T! Once again, for the price you can't go wrong. Again, these come in a range of 13 colours including a mint green, which is quite intriguing. I can definitely see myself ordering more.

Finally, we come to The Highlighter in 201. The Highlighter gives a very subtle and soft effect which is perfect for everyday wear or for those who don't want a sharp highlight. It is very natural and gives a 'veil of radiance' as described by 3INA themselves. Personally, I like my glow to be lit, like blinding, the kind where it leaves an imprint on the retina. So for me, this isn't something I would buy again, but I can see why it is a sell out.




Now for the make-up look. I used all three products together. For the eyeshadow, I  used a mix of colours (Red Ocre, Venetian Red, Love Letter and Cyprus Umber) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and cut a half crease out on the lid with the 3INA Cream Eyeshadow in 312. I used Kat Von D Tattoo liner and applied Nouveau Lashes Glamour Style 3 Strip Lashes  (£4.96) My blush is Charlotte Tilbury in The Climax and is brought quite high up around the temples too. I finished the look by applying 3INA's The Highlighter in 201 and The Longwear Lipstick in 505. So easy, but the Cream Eyeshadow steals the show. All pictures are taken on the iPhone 7 plus and are unedited to show the true effect of the makeup.




I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you tried 3INA products before? What do you think of the range?

  8. One word: gorgeous! I mean this look is so stunning! Also, it's good to know that the liquid lipstick doesn't dry your lips out because I have that problem a lot!

  20. The cream eyeshadow is also my favourite product! It is so long lasting and so pigmented! The highlighter is really pretty too. I was a bit disappointed with the wear time of the liquid lipstick though, but I love the colour range!
