Your New Favourite Makeup Brand: 3ina Bestsellers

Hi everyone! I hope you're all well. It's been a long time since I've posted on here: exams and school took over my life! But I'm back now and hoping to continue with my blogging journey.

In this week's post I'm going to introduce you to my new favourite makeup brand (and hopefullly yours soon, too): 3ina. 

I was super excited when I was contacted by the team at 3ina who were offering me the chance to try their best selling products, and after seeing all their gorgeous products on Instagram and on their website, I had to say yes!

3ina is a new, super trendy, super affordable and cruelty-free makeup brand which has all the makeup products you could ask for. Their best-selling products where voted for by the public and are available online and in 3ina stores this summer!
So, let's have a look at some of these well-loved, cult products.

I received 3 amazing products; the Cream Eyeshadow in shade 313, the Highlighter in shade 201, and the Longwear Lipstick in shade 500.

I am a huge fan of cream eyeshadows, as I find them so much quicker and easier to apply than powder eyeshadows, and I find them to be much more pigmented than any other eyeshadows, many of which barley show up on my eyelid, so naturally I was very excited to try this! I can say it is now my favourite cream eyeshadow at the moment, as it is amazingly pigmented - a little goes a very long way! - thanks to its soft and moussy formula, and the colour is a stunninf bronzey-gold with a slight pink shimmer (it even sounds amazing!). It dries quickly and feels lovely and light on the lids and looks gorgeous, with a slight metallic finish. As you can probably tell, this is my favourite product out of the three and I'm sure it's going to be an everyday must-have for me! It retails at £8.95 is cruelty and paraben free, and comes in 18 gorgeous colours.

Next up, one of my favourite steps of my makeup routine... highlighter! This iconic highlighter is often sold out, which is a testimony to how stunning and popular it is! It's a gorgeous bronzey toned highlighter, making it perfect for the summer, and creates a beautiful, natural glow to the skin and is definitely not too harsh, unlike some highlighters out there! It retails at £10.95 and is cruelty free, paraben free and vegan!

Last but not least is 3ina's bestselling Longwear Lipstick. I am obsessed with lipsticks, so  was so excited to receive this! Living up to what it says on the package, it lasts well and is extremely pigmented, applying like a watery lacquer, but then setting with an almost-matte finish and looks kind of like a stain on the lips, meaning it stays on well and feels super light on the lips, as if you aren't even wearing anything! The colour is a bright, postbox red and I think it would look good with every skin tone, and is the perfect red lipstick for all occasions. It retails for £7.95, is cruelty and paraben free and comes in 14 colours (yes, I need them all).

To finish off this post, I have included some swatches of the products above. 
(L-R: Longwear Lipstick shade 500, Cream eyeshadow shade 313, Highlighter shade 201).

Thank you to the lovely 3ina team for sending me out these amazing products. I will definitely be picking up some more! Leave me a comment below if you've tried any 3ina products and let me know what you thought!
Thank you for reading.

Current Beauty Favourites

As it's a little too late to do a July favourites and a little too early to do an August one, I thought I would do a current favourites post to show you a few things I've been loving.

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer-Sunny (£1.99)
I've seen so many American youtubers raving about this bronzer, so when I was checking the NYC counter in Superdrug and spotted this, I was pretty excited! I'm not really someone who uses bronzer a lot, as I haven't really mastered the skill of applying it yet, but for £1.99 you really can't go wrong! It is a lovely matte bronzer and is a nice natural shade, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try out a bronzer, as this is so cheap but really good.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo-On and On Bronze (£4.99)

I'm all about easy-to use products that cut down the time used to get ready and this is definitely one of them. I love using this all over my lids without having to bother with any other colours and yet it still provides a gorgeous, pigmented colour that makes you look like you put in a lot more effort than you actually did! And who doesn't want that? It also lasts a long time (I've never worn makeup for 24 hours so unfortunately I can't tell you if it lasts that long, but for £4.99, again you can't go wrong.

Bourjois Blush Exclusif (£7.99)

Another quick and easy product to apply is this Bourjois blush. It supposedly adapts to it's own unique colour on your cheeks and I find that the colour it adapts to on my cheeks is a really lovely natural colour. It has a lovely powder finish when applied to the skin, meaning it isn't sticky at all, which I find most cream blushers are. It just gives you a lovely rosy glow and although it is slightly pricey, I would definitely recommend it.

Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner (£4.49)

As I am terrible at liquid eyeliner, I like to put some of this khol eyeliner onto a little angled brush and apply it like a gel eyeliner to my upper lash line. It's very pigmented and creamy so I just smudge it a little bit and it looks very natural and is a lot easier for me to use than a liquid eyeliner. You can also use it on your lower waterline or lash line.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick-Nudist (£8.00)
I'm a complete sucker for lip products, they're my absolute favourite makeup products. I'm in love with this Soap and Glory gloss stick, as it makes your lips so glossy and moisturised, and also uses special ingredients to make your lips look fuller. I adore this colour as it's a very natural brownish pink which I think would look good with any skin tone and it's so easy to apply quickly when you're unsure of what lipstick colour you want to wear. This is also quite pricey for a drugstore product but it is amazing and comes in another 4 gorgeous shades.

Maybelline Electro Babylips-Strike a Rose (£2.99)

Another lip product I've been loving is the new Maybelline Babylips Electro lip balm. I love babylips as they provide moisture to your lips but also add a light wash of colour which is natural and pretty. The new electro range has more neon shades which I think are beautiful and provide a bit more colour than the original ones. Again, they are so quick and easy to apply when you don't want a full lipstick one day. They also come in 3 other shades and for £2.99 you definitely can't go wrong.

Top colour: Maybelline Babylips Electro (Strike a Rose)
Bottom colour: Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick (Nudist)
