3ina | The Bestsellers

3ina pronounced Mina are a fairly new brand to the market. They’ve been around for approximately 1 year and have a ‘one size fits all’ approach with their products. I reviewed their UV range not so long ago and was quite impressed with the quality and pigmentation. I was kindly sent three of their ‘Bestseller’ products to test and couldn’t wait to try them. The packaging is simple, there’s nothing fancy about it, but the products are good quality and when it comes down to it, the presentation isn’t as important to me than the actual product. If it performs well, that’s the main thing. The products are all housed in simple back plastic packaging – they are easy to store, light and easy to fit in my portable makeup bag.

Highlighter 201, £10.95

3ina (1)

It’s no surprise that this was up there amongst the bestsellers. This universal highlighter is suitable for all skintones, it has a creamy finish and reflects like glitter although it’s not chunky. It gives off that lightbulb glow unveiling radiant skin. As always, my top tips on applying this is anywhere you want to glow! Which is basically everywhere – ha! The pan is a good size too and you get a decent amount of product. This gives a subtle yet effective highlight and you can build on the colour. This will also double up as a shimmer eyeshadow and it’s not too chunky at all in the formaula. It applies so smooth and gives you a nice glow when mixed in with some Fix Plus. This is perfect for my skin tone and I just love it. The Gold tones compliment my skin even with a tan.

The Longwear Lipstick 505, £7.95

I am a lipstick fiend, so I was interested to see how the Longwear Lipstick did in it’s testing. It looks like a traditional lipstick, but don’t be fooled, it uses a twist action to reveal a doefoot applicator. I really like the colour, it’s a Terracotta toned Red and it’s extremely pigmented. I am a fan of applicators like this and it gave off a decent amount of colour from the doefoot onto my lips. You can see from my swatch below how pigmented the colour is. The formula is fantastic, it combines the texture of a standard lipstick but dries down to a matte finish.

The Cream Eyeshadow 313, £8.95

Probably my most favourite out of all three, this intense glimmer metallic eyeshadow really excels itself in terms of payoff. This is perfect for Summer holidays and warm days. A little goes a long way and this blended into the lids with some mascara just looks so effortless. I’m crushing over the colour so much, I mean it looks like high shine, metallic metal. It has a mousse like texture and sets in nicely. For me, I have the worlds oiliest skin and that means oily eyelids at all times. I used this on my lids using my trusty Urban Decay Primer Potion, and applied the cream eyeshadow over it. I am pleased to report, there was no visible creasing and the product stayed in place.

    I’m a true 3ina fan and can’t get over how great their products are ! Today I published my own review about their Cream Eyeshadows and boy… Always have sparkles in my eyes when I look at all these amazing shades !
    I also know very well their Longwear liquid matte lipsticks which I find really pigmented and oh so longlasting ! Can barely believe how longlasting they are without running in my lips lines or whatever… The only thing I’ve not tried yet is the highlighter but as I have placed a few orders on their website it should be in the mail next week 😀
    Thank you so much for your amazing review ! 😀
