Three from 3CE

Thank goodness for random 25% off sales and for the fact that Luxola carries 3CE. I already have a lipstick, gel eyeliner, and soft pencil liner from the brand from when I was still part of the BNT Girl program and I love all three of those things. Since then I have been eyeing loads of other 3CE things but haven’t picked anything up for one reason or another. When I saw the Luxola e-mail notifying me of a sale on the week before my birthday, I took it as a sign to finally pop the items I’d been eyeing into my shopping cart. P1170900I placed the order on Tuesday and by Thursday the parcel had arrived at my doorstep. If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen the post in which I expressed my happiness about that. Fast shipping is da bomb, you guys. That wasn’t the only awesome thing about this order though as aside from the 25% off I got on the eyeshadows, I ended up paying only 277.00 Php (!!!) for the Lip Color, which usually goes for 1.046.00 Php. I’m not sure if the huge discount was a fluke, but the sale price went back up to around 700Php the next time I checked the site and is at the time of this writing totally gone. Whatever the case is, I’ll take it as an early birthday gift!

3CE Under Eye Flash in #6 African Sunset*

UEF1Somebody please make 3CE available in the Philippines. I can srsly kill an hour just going through their website, drooling over the makeup selection. Gah.

So this 3CE Under Eye Flash (12.11 USD) is the third item from the brand that I’ve been lucky enough to try, thanks to BNT News. It’s a soft pencil liner that you can use to brighten and/or add depth to your look. It’s extremely soft, pigmented, and long-lasting.

There are six different shades to choose from and they all look like shades I would love to try, but I’m very happy to have gotten African Sunset! My second choice would be Romanticism, followed by Pitter Patter (pretty much just because I love the name).

3CE Lipstick in Vamp

Hey guys! So here’s the first of the products I got in my BNT Girls box– a really vampy lipstick! :)

A little background info on the brand first: 3CE stands for “3 Concept Eyes” Cosmetics. It’s Stylenanda‘s makeup line that launched back in 2009 and to be honest–I had no clue what Sylenanda was, so I had to search that as well. Hehe! Turns out it’s this super cool Korean brand/website that reminds me a little bit of ASOS, but with a distinctly Korean edge. I loved looking through the clothes so if you’re into KPop or Korean style in general, go check it out! :)

The makeup line, 3CE, aims to create range of styles based on three basic colours: pink, beige, and orange. The whole range of products looks really great; somehow edgy and classy at the same time. I was once again reminded of another brand because of the styling–American Apparel. Their very limited range of beauty items, at least. Anyway, today I have the 3CE lipstick in Vamp* to share with you guys.3CEVThe design on the box packaging is pretty unique. It definitely caught my eye the moment I opened the box! I checked the name of the shade on the bottom before even opened the box, so I was already really excited to see that it was called “Vamp.” I’d been lusting after a few vampy reds in stores but obviously have been unable to buy them because of my makeup ban (this is the last month, btw! Yay!). 
3CEV1I was surprised to find that the lipstick packaging itself is not a rounded bullet. It’s a chunky rectangular thing that fits very snugly into the box. I’m not sure I like how large it actually is, but I really like that it doesn’t slide around when I put it down on a table, hehe. The finish on the packaging is a nice demi-matte and the logo of 3CE is pretty uhm, groovy. That triangle is all misshapen on purpose, y’all.
