I'm not too sure if you've heard about this brand - I definitely hadn't until a few weeks ago! I am part of a Facebook Page called Beauty News which is run by two Melbournian beauty bloggers, and everybody in the group post images or screen-captures of products that are releasing soon or make-up news that they've heard of/seen. It was from this group that I found out about 3INA - a Spanish make-up brand who opened up their fourth store in the world in our very own Melbourne Central! :) I popped in last week to have a look and picked up a few goodies to see how they were - and my verdict so far: I love them! PLUS they're so, so affordable! Not one thing in the store was over $15.00 I don't believe (not including skin-care)! I've got a few swatches and bits 'n' pieces down below if you're interested in seeing how they come up! :)
1) The Intense Lipstick: Shade 301
The lipstick and cream eyeshadow were by far my favourite products from the range of things that I tested out :) the Intense lipstick formula had such great payoff and the colour I picked up is a lovely bright-nude for everyday wear.
2) The Cream Eyeshadow: Shade 313
The cream eyeshadow is awesome by 3INA! The colour I picked up was a lovely bronze neutral colour and there was also a gold that I was eye-balling when I went in too :) it's got a mousse-like consistency but wears a lot like the Josie Maran watercolour eyeshadows (featured in my previous post). They are super long lasting and you do need a good eye-makeup remover to get them off!
3) The Eyeliner: Shade 502
The eyeliner was probably my least favourite product that I picked up at 3INA. I liked the packaging, but it transferred a little bit streaky when swatched and when used on the eye, the tip was a little bit thick to get a defined line, especially at the end of a winged liner.
4) The Eyeshadow Brush
I quite like the eyeshadow brush :) it's very fluffy and full and does a great job of blending out colours. It's quite similar to the Real Techniques eyeshadow brush which I love!
