3INA Collective Haul & Review

Wednesday, 11 July 2018

Hello! I have to admit, this is quite a long overdue post I'm writing today. Recently I've been lucky enough to be able to work with 3INA Malta which is a makeup brand that does all kinds of makeup products that are fun, bold and affordable. In April I had the chance to review the lip vinyl collection and I have been trying out some more products since. You may have already seen some of them on my social media but I have never talked about them in-dept until today.



The Eyeliner Collection


The new eyeliner collection consists of 9 eyeliners, all different finishes and moods. I believe that some have been available for a few months but I like that they have come out with a complete collection. I'm quite impressed that they managed to come up with so many different eyeliner tips and finishes. So lets take a bit of an in-dept look at each of the 5 eyeliners I tried out.


The 2 in 1 Pen Eyeliner // I must say that I was mostly looking forward to trying out this one. One side of the tip is wide and flat while the other is thin and precise as you can see from the swatch above. Felt tip liners are my favourites so I was happy that this one had a little bit of a twist.

The Glitter Eye Pencil // Not something I would usually go for but I think it's really fun once you try it. The pencil is very creamy and glides on effortlessly while the little specks of glitter add a little extra something.

The Matte Pen Eyeliner //  This is what I would normally pick as I love to do a nice winged liner. It's the best option for when you're running a bit late but still want to look like you have put more effort in your makeup. The felt tip is extra long and skinny which allows you to create a really sharp flick on the first try.

The Dot Pen Eyeliner // My first thoughts when seeing this liner where "That's so cool but what would I use it for?" I'm not one to experiment that much with my looks but trying new things is a great way to get out of the comfort zone. I think this would look great for a festival makeup look. The only downside that I noticed is that it does bleed a bit.

The Glossy Eye Pencil // Last but not least is the glossy liner. Again, it's really creamy and glides on like the glitter pencil. When it dries it still keeps the glossy finish.




The Core Products

Another collection of items I got to try out consisted of a blush, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick. 3INA is known for their bold and fun product colours so I was really interested to see what I can do with the eyeliner and lipstick colours. I created a short makeup tutorial using these products which you can watch on my YouTube channel or down below.



The Blush 102 // The first thing that I ever bought from 3INA when they opened in Malta was the blush which I raved a lot about on this blog and it's still one of my most used in autumn and winter. I love brighter blushes in summer so this blush is perfect for this time of year. It's the best shade when paired with a tan and the blush gives a subtle glow as an added bonus.

The Eyeliner 509 // Now this I was very intrigued about. As I said previously I usually never veer away from my black felt liners, not even brown! I wanted to find a way to incorporate this beautiful and pigmented shimmery jade colour into a makeup look and as you can see below I ended up with a nice ombre winged liner look. It's also very waterproof but that does mean that it's a bit of a pain to remove!

The Build Up Mascara // I had not tried a 3INA mascara yet so I was interested to see what they are like. The build up mascara has a cone shaped wand with synthetic fibres that are densely packed to give volume. I love that it's a true black and voluminous mascara but on the other hand I did feel that it didn't separate my lashes enough and didn't lengthen that much. 

The Intense Lipstick 302 // Although I don't usually go for pink lipsticks, I love to wear them in the summer. This shade is a beautiful bold pink with a hint of red that is wearable and not at all in your face. It's also one of the creamiest and most hydrating lipsticks I own. Definitely recommend checking out one of the shades if you are looking for a new lipstick.



My favourites out of all these items are definitely the 2 in 1 liner, the matte pen liner, the blush and the lipstick. If you're looking for some new makeup items, head to 3INA to check out these products and more!
