3INA – The Best Sellers Collection – Review

Hi Everyone, 

Hope everyone is doing great!

Today’s blog post is all about 3INA and three products from their Best Sellers Collection.  I would like to thank 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for giving me another opportunity to test out these products. Stay tuned as I will be reviewing another collection of theirs in the coming weeks!!

Here is the video of me testing them out – 

Now, I will give a review of how they tested out once I used them a number of times after filming the video.

The Cream Eyeshadow in Shade 313

IMG_1936

I have tried out two other cream eyeshadows from 3INA but I think this one in shade 313 is the one I preferred the most. It was easy to work with, having applied it all over my lid, it wasn’t patchy and blended in nicely with the other shades!

IMG_1943

I found it long wearing and it wasn’t cracking. I just love the colour, and once you pair it with a red lip and use it alongside a brown smokey eye – I think you’ll be all set with a Christmas makeup look!!

The Highlighter in Shade 201 – 

IMG_1933

This is such a radiant and shimmery highlighter. Yes, it doesn’t give you that, “Oh my gosh, what a highlight look!” But I like quite natural looking highlights and this is perfect in keeping your makeup natural yet it adds a gentle glow!

IMG_1934

I also used it for my inner corner highlight to add a pop of highlight to my eyes. Simply applying it with your little finger will do the trick!! (I forgot my pointed brush at home back in Malta so yeah…)

The Longwear Lipstick Shade 505

IMG_1930

This shade is just a lovely dark pink perfect for the autumn months! The longwear lipstick formula, “is designed for those who love the application of a lip gloss but want the colour payoff of a longwear lipstick.” 

IMG_1931

It isn’t patchy and at first you think it’s glossy but then it dries down to an opaque matte lipstick. It lasts longs and its applicator is made for an easy application.

3INA – The UV Collection (Limited Edition) – Festival Makeup!

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for joining me yet again on my blog!

Today’s blog post is all about 3INAs latest collection entitled – THE UV COLLECTION! 

IMG_0256

IMG_0259

 

I must say I was very excited to try out these products. I actually wore them when I went to the ISLE OF MTV as I think they’re perfect makeup items for when you find yourselves attending a festival!

Here is my video showing you guys how the products actually test out!

I will now share with you some after thoughts since I filmed that video.

3INA – The UV Collections (Limited Edition) – Products – 

IMG_0260

IMG_0261

3INA The Fluoro Cream Eyeshadow – Shade 401 – €10.95

IMG_0265

IMG_0268

The shade 401 is a fluorescent orange which looks great on the eyes especially if you have lighter eyes! I found that it dried down quite fast however, you have to be patient with this product.

Go in with a steady hand and pat the product with a flat brush onto the lids. It does go a little patchy but in all honesty it won’t show much as you can see from my photos!

IMG_0131

Be aware that this product will go on your lashes. Now this might have happened to me as I am no professional makeup artist and maybe I did not apply it correctly, but it went all over my lashes so I guess they were fluorescent as well. This was the product that was mostly fluorescent.

IMG_0217 2
3INA The Fluoro Eye Pencil – €8.95

IMG_0266IMG_0270

I LOVE this eye pencil. It might not show that it is fluorescent but I love how it applies. I found that with this product I didn’t have any problems when I applied it on my upper lash line.

It’s so creamy, applied so smoothly and wasn’t patchy at all. It also lasted a long time on my lids and the product didn’t transfer.
3INA The Fluoro Palette – €13.95

IMG_0263

IMG_0264

This blush comes in such a fun pink/orange shade and applies so nicely onto your skin. I didn’t find that it was fluorescent on my skin but when I swatched it, it was.

I have enjoyed using this product even on an everyday simple makeup look. Adding this blush to an everyday makeup look, will make your look even more interesting. And I also love the packaging of this product especially because it comes with a mirror.
3INA The Fluoro Lip Gloss – Shade 200 – €9.95

IMG_0267

IMG_0271

This Lip Gloss has such a sweet scent. It reminded me of sweets that I used to eat when I was a little girl! It applies smoothly and isn’t too sticky as well.

IMG_0195

I liked the look it left me and again this doesn’t show to be fluorescent as much as the cream eyeshadow. It also lasts quite long!

IMG_0272
All 4 products tested under the fluorescent torch that 3INA so kindly sent me! From Left to Right – Cream Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Blush and Lip Gloss. 

So those were my overall thoughts on 3INA’s UV Collection! If you are in Malta, you can visit 3INA at PAMA, Qormi, Mosta, Valletta and the Point, Sliema.

Have you tried out any of these products? If so, let me know in the comments down below!

My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? 

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-44

I am so excited to be sharing with you this Youtube Video. As you know lip videos are my favourite ones to film. I have previously filmed my favourite seasonal lipsticks however, never did one for Winter until now!!

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-51

So here are my favourite 10 lipsticks that are all reasonably priced as all of them are drugstore as I now have realised!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Harmony

2

As you know I love the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers. Even though they aren’t long last and need a constant re application especially when food or drink is involved, their range is great. They have so many shades in their collection including four new SPRING shades1!!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

1

This was one of the collaborations that Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop and of course I had to get my hands on it! I love the formula of their satin lips and this lip shade screams winter!! Kathleen also released a new set of three lipsticks with Colourpop called Aquarius Bundle!

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

6

The formula isn’t the best but the scent of this lipstick is AMAZING! I have only managed to get my hands on one of these shades from this range. I love the formula as it is very soft and creamy!

Focallure Matte Lips in Shade 03 Burnt Amber

5

I purchased these off Ebay and I love the range. They are a little patchy and a little bit sticky but when I apply some sort of lip moisturiser before hand it definitely helps!

3ina Lipstick Shade 102

8

3INA is a brand that we recently got in Malta, there are 3 branches and I love the shop and the way it is designed! I love their products, and they are well priced too! The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is the bullet is so annoying to apply with!

BH Cosmetics Bh Liquid Lipstick in Clara

3

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks! They dry to a matte perfect finish and they have the fastest drying formula that I have ever tried! They are also long lasting as well!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Copenhagen

9

I love the Soft Matte Lip Range from NYX  I think they have such a lovely range of shades! The scent that these lipsticks have is AMAZING!! I like this shade however you have to be so careful around it as it tends to get patchy!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Vixen – Ebay Replica

10

So I cannot lie and tell you that this is the original products but no it is a knock off from Ebay. And I was hesitant in trying these out but I did and actually like how the colour pay off truly is! They do have a scent to them not a chemically one as you would expect off ebay! They are a little patchy and need constant re application but apart from those factors I love this lipstick!

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Magnetic

7

The Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme’s are by far my favourite liquid lipsticks! They have the sweetest scents from all these lipsticks I have mentioned! They are not that long lasting but are so soft and creamy! They apply so well and smoothly across the lips !! The applicator is helpful in creating a precise shape onto your lips!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dominatrix – Ebay Replica

4

Again, this is a knock off and yes I did not want to spend all that money on the real thing, and was I happy with my decision? YES!! I love it. It is a little bit drying but again applying some moisturiser or lip balm before applying this lipstick definitely helps!! I love the shade it’s sort of a dusty mauavey brown and pink mixed together!!

I hope  you enjoyed this post!

What was your favourite lipstick and lip shade?

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Happy Wednesday!!

3INA Makeup Review

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to share with you all today’s video.

Yes I know it is not a Wednesday however I just wanted to upload another video this week.

I don’t know if I shall be changing my video upload days but will see.

So recently, I was invited to attend my first ever MAKEUP LAUNCH PARTY, and I was so EXCITED!! (And nervous but mostly excited!!)

I had so much fun, met so many lovely people and tried out new products.

3INA is a new makeup brand with a difference.

Firstly 3INA is pronounced as ‘Mina’ but the ‘M’ in 3INA is flipped.

Secondly, it is an English and Spanish brand and it was created with an edge.

The brand includes lots of different makeup products – foundations, powders, eyeshadows, eyeliners, lipsticks and many others. Even Nail Polish!!

Each item has a rainbow full of shades with it! Which is pretty cool and unique.

Even when you go into the shop it’s like you have just entered rainbow mania!

I think it is such a unique and positive idea, it not only gives you great products but a lovely experience whilst shopping among all those different shades of colour.

Here are links to 3INA Official Website & Social Media if you want to check them out:

They have stores in:

Malta
Australia
Greece
Italy
South Africa
Sweden
London

img_4726

I was kindly given some items to try out.

Here’s my new video showing you all my reaction to trying out the products for the first time –

I ended up doing a whole makeup look using these products 🙂

Products that were mentioned – 

3INA – The Blush – Shade number 103

img_4747

img_4748

img_4749

The packaging is super cute and sleek.

The formula of this blush is very creamy and light. The colour I have is a light pink/rose shade. Perfect for when I want a natural looking blush. Easy to blend onto your cheeks.

3INA – The Cream Eyeshadow – Shade number 313

img_4742

img_4744

img_4746

The formula of this cream eyeshadow is amazing, it is so pigmented and creamy. It really does stick to your eyelids, but doesn’t have that sticky/tacky feeling. It is a little hard to take off but I love it.

If you saw the video, I had trouble with applying this because I simply used a flat eyeshadow brush. I would have just used my fingers because I found it easy to blend. But the tub it comes in is so small because I have long nails and didn’t want to make a mess. Nonetheless, it still applied well with a lot of blending.

If you would like to suggest a brush I should use, please let me know in the comments down below.

3INA – The Eyeliner Pencil – Shade number 605

img_4730

img_4728

This mint/jade shade I would not normally wear but when I finished the makeup look I actually learnt to love this colour. Who would have thought?

It is creamy and it glides well against my water line which is where I applied it.

3INA – The Colour Mascara – Shade number 100

img_4732

This metallic grey mascara is perfect if you want to try a coloured mascara and you are not that adventurous to try out bright coloured mascaras.

Because it was a dark metallic grey shade you can’t really tell a lot of difference between this mascara and a normal black one. But when I applied it to the lower lashes where I had the green eyeliner you can see the hints of grey in your lashes.

It applies well, the brush is easy to apply your mascara with all your lashes and most importantly it is not clumpy!!

Here are 2 close up photos of the cream eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara.

3INA – The Longwear Lipstick – Shade number 508

img_4736

img_4741

IMG_4752.jpg

The formula in this lipstick is AMAZING!!!

It was my favourite product that I tried by far. I really want to go again and get some more shades! The formula is soft and it is applied so nicely on the lips. It appears creamy at first however, then it dries completely matte! And it truly is a longwear lipstick – you can eat, drink and it will still be there!

What I love the most about this lipstick is even though it dries matte, it does not feel drying to your lips! My lips still felt moisturised whilst wearing it.

I will definitely be visiting 3INA again and try out new products.

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post/watching my video 🙂

Happy Saturday

Love Kezia
