I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks and have been a matte girl forever! I just realized that all my lip colors are matte and I apply gloss if I feel I need the glossy effect or stick to my lip-balm for the moisturized effect. Whatever the method of hydration, the lip colors I chose are always matte! The latest addition to my stash is the Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color in #909 Smoked Rose that BNT News send me from Korea.
I have been a great fan of 3CE and have always wanted them in my vanity. I especially love their lip pigments and plan to buy them and soon enough! Coming back to Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color, the usual cliche that matte lipsticks accentuate lines and creases on your lips, do not hold for Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color. It is a game changer in the matte lipstick category.
What it Claims:
Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color has a typical creamy texture that perfectly adheres on your lips and leaves a clearly color that lasts for a long time. Thanks to its Pigment Infusion System, only one touch is sufficient to have a highly pigmented color.
This kind of shows the exact color (sorry for the lighting):
Korean packagings are either downright luxurious or cute as hell. The Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color packaging is definitely cute and funky with the lips on the packaging and the main product having a plain black finish with the 3 Concept Eyes symbol on it. It looks chic and sophisticated with a chunky rectangular finish once you open the outer box.
MIU Review of Stylenanda 3CE Matte Lip Color:
- Feels smooth and perfect- more like MAC lipsticks
- Highly pigmented and two swipes is all I need to last ALL DAY (including food times)
- Reapplication requires you to remove the product with a tissue. No much fading throughout the day and definitely not uneven fading.
- Not really moisturizing. But I apply Maybelline baby lips lip-balm before it anyway. No complains regarding it anyways. It’s just the right formula and doesn’t feel cheap.
- Overall a great product at a great price. Available at Korea Depart at $17.39 (Not exact color) or 3CE website at $19.00 (they ship to India too!)
