The popularity of lip velvet and matte color never endless and 3CE is one among many Korean brands cosmetic who successfully understands what their consumers endlessly want and couldn’t endures.
3CE successfully hit the market with the Velvet Lip Tint- 10 MLBB shades, and few months ago 3CE launched new colors that’s called “Choose For Me Prime Violet Purple Variation” in their Velvet Lip Tint collection, of course still MLBB shades and all of them are so pretty (guess what?!! couldn’t resist their beautiful and subtle for everyday colors, I bought 5 colors; 3 colors of violet purple variation #Go Now, #Know Better, #Persistence and the rest 2 was #Near and Dear,and #Going Right) the lip tint became a new hyped up product since it was released.
3CE claimed the Velvet Lip Tint is a creamy and sherbet-like texture that melts into lips and leaves a natural tinge with a soft matte finish, and a rich MLBB shades that offers a youthful and vivid femme-fatale shade that stands between red and pink.
The packaging are pretty minimalist with color-coded to the shade, which is really good for an easy pick what colors you want to use everyday. Come to think of it, it’s what Stylenanda is all about the simplicity but classic.
The advantage of long tube and slim brush is really comfortable to use. The long wand applicator is a standard doe-foot, it’s a narrow shape and it’s easy to get into the corner of your lips. You can easily control the amount of the product and the brush works nicely to create both gradient and full lips application.
According to the description, the colors are very pigmented and vibrant. However, on the lips(and when swatched) they actually look very soft even when you do a full lip. They’re a really great compromise between the Korean tint trend and the liquid lipstick trend. The formula is extremely soft and weightless, basically feeling like nothing on your lips. It’s also really easy to do a gradient lip, but also a little buildable.
I found 3CE Velvet Lip Tint has a weightless and creamy texture like a lip mousse. The texture is slightly thicker than Peripera Airy Ink Velvet (in case you have tried this popular product as well). But 3CE Velvet Lip Tint has a better coverage and more matte when blend out. I prefer the bold formula-especially #Know Better and #Persistence, it’s really a bold violet on lips,right?!! but I don’t think the rest as the bold as the swatches that they have online (need more layers to bolder the colors), the colors still quite accurate-which I find it more gentle for everyday wear.
well, let’s check out the swatches colors below. I think these are great for everyday lip product, especially for anyone who likes softer and wearable lip products.
#Near and Dear; A serene mauve pink that offers a nude delicate on your lips. This color is prefect for nude everyday makeup look
#Going Right; A calm rossy peach of quite and unique vitality. It’s an orange-brownish color perfect for fall makeup. It’s not too orange but not too nude for me. It’s gorgeous!
#Go Now; Mauve pink shades that exudes velvety softness in light purple. I love the soft purple and this suitable for no makeup look and the attention fall into your lips color.
#Know Better; A warm dusty rose, leave a sophisticated red violet with a cozy vibe. This color perfect for a daring makeup.
#Persistence; A glamorous plump color, ultimately for a healthy skin and brighten up your look
I love the velvet finish, it doesn’t feel like drying at all. The lovely texture and nice pigmentation leaves a lightweight and pretty on lips, it’s actually wears off quite naturally. The color will fade or stain on your food/drink, it will get a little less deep so you might need to touch up after eat. I love the 3CE violet purple variation, the colors are so flattering and never bored to play around everyday.
This product is good for someone who likes softer makeup style or who as dry lips. I actually recommend only picking up a few shades that you think you will get a long of wear out and 3CE Velvet Lip Tint is suitable for casual wear. This isn’t really a product that I would save for special evenings. However, I don’t think it’s something we all need to rush out and buy. The tints are a bit pricey in a comparison, better alternative to this will be a Peripera Airy Ink Velvet. Feel free to check them out at store or online store out there.
