Massive 3CE haul #2

Another massive 3 Concept Eyes haul. It has been a year since the last time I did a massive 3 Concept Eyes haul (link here).

This might be my last 3CE haul because for the price I am paying for these products, I could top up a little more and get better products. They are pretty pricey for what they are despite getting them at slightly lower than market price in Korea.
They are not bad or awful products, after buying so many of their products ad trying them out, I felt that they are many better brands outside that I could get than this brand.

3 Concept Eyes Enriched Treatment Face Oil

The dewy makeup look is a trend in Korea and this product helps in creating the look by dropping some oil into the foundation.
This face oil reminds me of Nuxe's Huile Prodigieuese .

It comes with a beautiful frosted glass jar.

3 Concept Glossing Waterful Foundation

One word. Impulse buy.

The shade is #milkivory

The packaging of this foundation is gorgeous, with the frosted glass bottle and also dropper. The dropper makes it convenient and avoids overpouring of foundation.
This foundation is very watery the coverage is non-existent to light. If you have perfect skin and you just want to slightly even out your skintone, this might be the foundation but other than that, I don't think it is the foundation. It won't cover redness or blemishes. Also, it can't be build up.
Since it is light, this foundation won't settle in lines nor cake, it gives a beautiful soft glossy finish. On oily skin type, it might lean too oily. It is more suited for drier skin types.
This foundation is not long lasting. That is the problem with light foundations.
It depends on what your skin needs. This is not a foundation for everyone. It is the foundation for people with dry and close to perfect skin.

3 Concept Eyes Natural Finish Loose Powder in #001

This loose powder comes in a typical black lidded packaging and a puff inside.
I haven't tried this powder yet and it is collecting dust in my vanity, I am just too attached to my MAC MSF Natural.

3 Concept Eyes Powdery Lip & Cheek

3 Concept Eyes Powdery Lip & Cheek in Popo & Tibet Orange

Popo is a light purple pink shade and Tibet Orange is bright orange.

I like these products. The colour are gorgeous especially on the cheeks, they are great! The product sorts of finishes powder-like on my skin. Since they lean to a powder finish, they do not work well as lip product, they just settle too much on the lip line and even made my not-so-dry lips like Sahara desert. Flaking everywhere. Pretty much any lip junkie's nightmare.

3 Concept Eyes Cream Blusher in New Pink

New Pink is a pale pink shade. A nice everyday shade for blush.
Cream blush are great during the colder months where the skin is dryer, it gives the skin a luminous glow and also colour to the cheeks.
I picked this up because I just wanted to their cream blusher.

3 Concept Eyes Liquid Foundation in Ivory Beige

It comes in a squeezy tube like this.
The texture of the foundation is slightly watery and light. It finishes of semi matte on the skin but due to the texture, the coverage only lies at light to medium. Definitely more coverage compared to the Glossing Waterful Foundation but it doesn't conceal much redness and blemishes.
It is light on the skin but it is not light airy like.
It doesn't last too long on the skin, without setting it, it can melt of just like that in a mere 4 hours. I just somehow find this foundation stays on the skin and doesn't 'stick' to the skin.

A foundation for the close to perfect skin.
Those with blemishes, acne or pimples, this won't be the foundation you are looking for.

3 Concept Eyes Full Cover Concealer in #001

I think I have found a gem in 3CE's makeup line. This has been my favourite concealer for my undereyes.
The texture of the concealer is gel-like so it is very light on the undereye and doesn't set into the fine lines.
It last very long and coverage is great for dark eye circles.

This concealer works well for undereye but it doesn't set well on blemishes.

3 Concept Eyes Fresh Aqua Mist

I got this as a free gift from purchasing the creamy lipstick.

3 Concept Eyes Jumbo Lip Crayon

3 Concept Eyes Jumbo Lip Crayon in #Pop Orange.

I remembered ordering in #Cream Orange instead of #Pop Orange. Kinda disappointing because it is not the colour I have hoped for.
I am not buying anymore Jumbo Lip Crayon because I am lazy when it comes to sharpening my makeup.

3 Concept Eyes Back to Baby BB Cream.

Another product that comes in a squeezy tube.

Their BB Cream is newly released so I was really interested in it.

Finally a product for the girls who need coverage. If you were thinking about the Glossing Waterful Foundation but need the coverage, then this is the product for you.
The texture is viscous like most Korean BB Creams and the finish is soft and dewy with medium to high coverage that is slightly buildable.

3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquer in 'Pink Boom'

I got really intrigued with the lip lacquer since products like this are not easy to come by in the Korean market.
The texture, it's really creamy. I applies 'wet' on the lips to dry down and 'clings' to the lips. It reminds me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and Bourjois Rouge Velvet.
Like most lip creams type of formula, it is always advised to exfoliate and moisturize the lips the day prior of using the product as along the day upon application, the product will dry the lips out and settle into fine lines.
Not a very attractive look.

Comparing the 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquer, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and Bourjois Rouge Velvet, I would say the Bourjois Rouge Velvet is definitely the winner. I just like its unexplainable velvet airy feeling on the lips, it's a velvet dream and throughout the day my lips still doesn't feel dry.
In terms of colour selection, I give the 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquers and NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams the thumbs up.
If you have to choose 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquers or NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, I would say give NYX a go because in terms of performance these two are somewhat similar but NYX wins at the price department.

3 Concept Eyes Honey Face Chiffon Fluid

3 Concept Eyes Honey Face Chiffon Fluid comes in a squeezy tube too.

The texture of the foundation is slightly mousse like. The finish is matte and the coverage is medium to high. I find it has better oil control than the other foundations from 3CE.

More 3 Concept Eyes lippies, I am a lippie junkie and I have got to say I like 3CE's lipsticks due the great colour variety.

3 Concept Eyes Lip Color in Deep Kisser, Violeta and Bella.

Bella is a deep plum berry colour. It is very vampy.

Violeta is a deep purple pink shade.

Deep Kisser is a fuchsia pink with slight purple in it.

3 Concept Eyes Creamy Lip Color

I got two shades : Roller Coaster & Dazzling.

Roller Coaster is a baby pink.

Dazzling is a pink beige.

3 Concept Eyes in Water Gloss in Chewing

This is a new product from 3CE so I picked it up to try it out.

That sums up my really massive 3 Concept Eyes haul.
