New Products From 3ina And How To Create Wet Look Eyeshadow - 1

As you might have been able to tell from a couple of my previous posts (this one and this one), I've become a big fan of 3ina since they first came to my attention a few months ago. So, needless to say, it was a lovely surprise to receive another package from them last week. This time, they sent me a few of their new eye products, and there was plenty to get me excited, not least a nifty little gloss that helps you create the wet look eyeshadow that's so popular right now with a single swipe. Read on for my thoughts on the products I got!

This is the most beautiful colour. It looks blue to me, although the brand describes it as sea green. I was expecting the pigmentation to be stronger than it is, but in fact, it gives you more of a subtle hint of colour than a precise, vivid line. (For reference, I applied the above swatch using my Zoeva 317 Wing Liner brush.) Gel liners are always tricky for me to get to grips with, particularly as my eye shape doesn't lend itself to the winged cat eye look, and that combined with the lack of pigmentation means that this doesn't show up too well on my eyes. It's a real shame, as I was so looking forward to playing around with it. However, as I said, I am not the best partner for gel liners and this might work a lot better on someone who generally wears them well. 3ina also has a black, brown and cornflower blue liner in this range.

This kit reminds me a lot of Benefit Brow Zings, which I used to use religiously. There's a waxy product to define the shape of the brows, a powder to fill them in, a brush for each and a little pair of tweezers. It's packaged really nicely and I love the generously sized mirror - perfect for on the go. I found the wax product a lot softer than other brow products I've used, which made it tricky to work with, but when I switched the brush for my Bobbi Brown Eyebrow brush, it became a bit easier. The powder is very natural looking and filled my brows in well. On the whole, I like this kit, and will definitely use it, but it doesn't threaten Benefit Kabrow's status as my favourite.

Now this is very cool. If you're anything like me, you've probably noticed a lot of celebrities, models, influencers etc rocking the wet look eyeshadow trend lately. If you've been wondering how to create it for yourself, nothing could be easier. Simply apply your eyeshadow of choice (a single, lightish colour swept all over the lid works best) and then dab some of this stuff over the top using the handy sponge applicator. Alternatively, 3ina also make some tinted versions of this Eye Gloss which you can wear alone, but I like this clear one as it's more versatile - you can wear it over any shadow or even your bare eyelids if you want a very minimal look. There is a slight stickiness to the product, but once it's applied it's not uncomfortable at all. It leaves the shadow beneath it perfectly intact, and gives eyelids a lovely dewy glimmer - no danger of looking oily! See below for how it looks on.

This is my favourite of the products I was sent. The baked eyeshadow duo looks so beautiful in the pan, even though it sadly got cracked in transit. The quality is beautiful - silky, seamless and perfectly pigmented. As for the brown toned pink shade - I'm in love. It's flattering and warm and just right for the time of year. My only gripe with this product is that there is more of the white shade than the pink, which seems silly as the white is more of a highlight shade - or am I missing something?! In any case, it's really beautiful and I'm going to be wearing this to death throughout the Autumn.

In the photo below, I'm wearing the pink shadow all over my lids with a hint of the white in my inner corners. I've also applied the Eye Gloss over the top, although I have to say that this shadow looks equally good without it.

  1. I love a good glossy eye and this eye gloss sounds lovely, I particularly love the fact that this is clear as all mines have a slight tint to them!

  6. Have you considered the gel as eyeshadow base? That works for me when I have gel liners with disappointing pigmentation.

  15. I’ve been seeing this brand around a lot lately and have always been intrigued by their chic minimal label. The eye gloss sounds really cool and I love the finished look on you! I actually thought the eyeshadow was a blush/highlighter duo as I was also confused about the white shade. Thanks for the review!
