Hello guys!! Where do I start from? Where have I been? I have so much to tell you that we would need a special blog post for that which we will do soon as a welcome party:) I happened to come across a new makeup brand in Kenya called 3INA. This is a European Cosmetic brand but their products are made in different parts of the world. 3INA has a wide range of products but I decided to try four products because a girl has to start somewhere. I got a cream eye shadow, a highlighter, a matte long wearing lipstick and a gel top coat nail polish. I initially intended to do a video to show you how I was using the products but I felt that a photo shoot would do me more justice by showing my transformation from a natural look to an awesome face beat after using the products.
The cream eye shadow is water proof which means you will be fine when it rains and pours heavily or when you go swimming and you wanna still look fly after, I also realized that the cream eye shadow can be used as a highlighter for the cheekbones to show how one’s cheeks can be transformed from human to fish like ones because of being defined to perfection. The color of the cream eye shadow was bronze-goldish which made it cooler.
The matte long wearing lipstick was literally my favorite product, the color was deep and bold, it smelled amazing and it was very long lasting on the lips. I have tried a lot of lipsticks especially when I recently went to the Sephora at Dubai mall and I have to say many matte lipsticks don’t smell that great and most matte lipsticks leave the lips chapped when taken off but as for this baby right here I will vouch for it with my head held up high and say that your lips will look the same as before you put it on after wiping it off. I also found it easy to wipe it off using Vaseline or a wet wipe at end of the day which is a bonus because some matte lipsticks are a mess to take off and ain’t nobody got time for that!
The highlighter was quite a makeup gem, we all love the fact that highlighters make it look like God’s light literally shown on our cheeks and noses and don’t we all crave to achieve that look? The highlighter helped me highlight the areas I wanted which included my collar bones(yes it’s a makeup technique), my cheeks, my nose and my cupid area. I also realized that I can apply it on my lips and put on a lip balm to give my lips a bit of shine and shimmer, talk of creativity!
The final product which was the gel top coat nail polish gave me mixed emotions. I applied a colored nail polish and after drying I used the gel top coat and I made sure that I applied two coats for the best results possible. I naturally hate going for manicures and pedicures because I detest staying at one place idle for a long time, when I saw this top coat I thought my life had been saved but that wasn’t the case. I like the gel top coat nail polish don’t get me wrong but considering that I spend a lot of time doing laundry, dishes and cleaning my house then I would hope for the top coat to be as strong the the gel polish done using the UV machine. The top coat didn’t last my nail polish that long but if you rarely touch water and don’t do chores often or at all then it will serve you for a long period of time.
The products I really loved were the long wearing matte lipstick, the Highlighter and cream eye shadow. As for the gel top coat it was more of a like affair not a love affair. My advice for you is not to take my word for it, go to their store which at the ground floor opposite Carre four at Two Rivers Mall on the 2nd of December and find out the amazing range selection of products at affordable prices.
