I was recently sent over some bits from 3INA. A European brand that offers high quality makeup for a reasonable price (woo)! I’ve seen a lot of bloggers reviewing and trying out their products, so I’m super excited to be doing this post and see what all the hype’s about!
the eyes and lips make up remover
The first thing I saw when opening the box, was the Eye and Lips Makeup Remover. Now, I usually just use micellar water to remove my makeup and have done for years now because its so gentle on my skin. I’m looking forward to seeing how well this removes my eye makeup in comparison to the micellar water – I shall report back!
the cream eyeshadow in 313
I’m a sucker for a good cream/liquid eyeshadow so I was beyond excited to see this. This is one of their Cream Eyeshadows in the shade 313, which is a bronze/light brown colour (my fave). I actually used this for the first time this morning and wow! The formula is so smooth and creamy, it really does glide onto the eyelid with ease. This makes it super easy to blend and is great if you want a quick wash of colour. Definitely going to be using this regularly!
the volume mascara waterproof
I’m always happy to test out new mascara’s, I mean, I love my trusty Maybelline Lash Sensational, but there might be something better out there! So I tested out the Waterproof Volume Mascara and sadly, I don’t think its the one for me. The wand is exceptionally big, which is fine but I find it makes application a bit messy. Its hard to grip the lashes as well, so overall I don’t think I’ll be using this.
the 24 hour pen eyeliner
Eyeliner doesn’t really feature in my day-to-day makeup routine but I do like to dabble with it every now and again if I’m feeling adventurous. This is the 24 Hour Pen Eyeliner, which I put to the test. I was actually pretty impressed with the application, because it has a small nib, its much easier to not mess up (haa, if you’re anything like me then you know the struggle). I wore this all day, so a good 12-14 hours I’d say and it didn’t budge at all. So thumbs up for that, as there is nothing worse than eyeliner running down your face! Although, I had quite the struggle trying to get it off. I used micellar water which kinda worked but wow it really wasn’t budging.
the longwear lipstick in 502
I do love a good lippie. This is their Longwear Lipstick in the shade 502. It’s a gorgeous mid to light pink shade, which is perfect for the summer. I’d class this as a cream lipstick, as its not matte but certainly not glossy either. Almost like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. It feels really comfortable on the lips as its not too drying. However it needs topping up after eating/drinking but thats expected for a non-matte lipstick.
the glowing face palette
Would you look at how gorgeous The Glowing Face Palette is? This is a versatile palette that you can use as highlighter, eyeshadow or even on the lips. I’ve been using the bottom left shade on my cheek bones, its a lovely champagne shade which is perfect for highlight. The pinky shimmer I’ve been using as a blush, although its very shimmery a small amount looks lovely.
Overall I’m really impressed with 3INA and will definitely be buying more from them in the future!
