3iNA Cosmetics Haul

07:30:00


The other weekend I was in Covent Garden and I came across a makeup shop called 3iNA (Pronounced as MINA). I have never heard of them or ever seen their beauty products, but the shop looked really good so I had a little wonder. It's very much like Kiko, with their large range of colours and their modern displays. The staff were extremely welcoming and the lady, Camila, who helped me was very knowledgeable. She told me that 3iNA is an European, Spanish based beauty brand that has launched in the UK this year. They don't test on animals which is a huge bonus in my eyes and I'm sure many of you will agree! I believe their opening two stores up North soon and are also opening an online store very soon! The prices are reasonable and very similar to Kiko! Overall I spent £37.75 for 5 products. I haven't really had a chance to test out all the products but I wanted to share with you what I've got!










If a brand has a good blush then they're pretty much a winner to me. I was really impressed with the consistency of the blushes from 3iNA. Although the packaging isn't the best, I love that there is a huge pan of product with each containing 7.5gr (which is roughly between a Mac and a Sleek blush for comparison). There's plenty of room for you to swirl your brush around and you get a fair amount of product picked up on a quick swipe. It leaves a really smooth, natural finish and doesn't look chalky or collect in your pores at all! I got the shades 105 which is the orangey/peachy shade for myself and 103 which is a darker mauvey/pink for my Mum. They were £9.95 each. I need to test how long these last with and without primers/bases but so far, so good! 




Next is lip liners. I've been trying to stay clear from lip liners lately because I have so many but don't tend to reach out for them as much, but these were on sale so I thought, why the heck not! I like that these come with a little lip brush at the end so that you can blend your lip liners in or even apply it as a lipstick! They're not the easiest to blend out, but you can get a softened hue with them. I got the shade 435 and 455; they're both similar in colour but 455 is more of a maroon colour and 435 is more on the red side. They are nicely pigmented and come in a range of colours. I picked them up for £4.95 but they're originally £6.50. I am yet to try these out! 



Lastly, I had to pick up one of the hundreds of lipsticks they had to offer! This one is a Matte Lipstick in the shade 408 which is a gorgeous berry shade. I haven't properly worn this lipstick yet, but from the swatches they are super creamy and nicely pigmented. I'm worried they might not wear long but I'm excited to try it out. These are an average highstreet price at £7.95

I'd love to know if you've heard or tried anything from 3iNA Cosmetics and what your favourites are!
