3 Concept Eyes (otherwise known as 3CE) is a range of beauty products by super-popular, K-Pop fashion brand, Stylenanda.
The brand celebrates everything that’s hot in the Korean makeup scene at the moment – dewy skin, pinky lips, flushed cheeks, puppy style eyeliner, and straight brows.
Lots and lots of beauty fans have raved about this brand and I have been itching to try it out for a while now.
Sephora Australia stocks 3CE on their online store and kindly sent over a few samples for me to try!
3CE Creamy Cheek Stick (Marry You) is a fantastic little stick blush! I just dab it onto my cheeks and use my fingers tips to blend it in to create a pretty flush. The colour is vivid and lasting, I really like it!
Best thing about it: I can pop it into my hand bag and travel with it and it won’t CRACK and make an almighty mess like powder blush.
3CE Duo Color Face Blush (Make Me Blush) – I found this blush to be quite nice. It was vibrant on my skin, which is a good thing right? So I only used a little, tiny dusting of it to give me a deep pinky glow. It lasted fine too. To be honest it wasn’t amazing – it was just a good, simple, little duo blush.
3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner (Brown) – Ok I really liked this product. I never used a brown pen eyeliner before so it was very different and I liked the subtle eyeliner effect it gave me, as opposed to the harsh and striking black eyeliner look. The tip is fine and very flexible (more than I was used to) and I really liked how QUICK and EASY it was to apply my eyeliner in the morning. I’m sold!
3CE Back To Baby BB Cream (Only one shade) – I was very suspicious about the one shade thing. Seriously, how can I wear the same colour as the Korean girls with porcelain white skin? I’m soooo many shades darker than the typical Korean beauty, especially since I’m outdoors so often (in Australia!) and I use tanning cream on my face (ha!).
I tried it anyway. It came out of the bottle looking very pale, but it melted and blended into my skin soooo beautifully. I might say right now that it is one of the best BB Creams I’ve tried in a while.
It gave me a nice dewy finished, as promised. It smelt really lovely. It has SPF35+. It didn’t cover up all my blemishes, but I probably needed some industrial concealer for those babies. Only kidding. It was very easy to build up over the top with my regular foundation. 5/5, you must try it!
3CE Glossing Waterful Foundation (Natural Ivory) – A very strange name for foundation! Lots of beauty fans have raved about this product. It seems really popular and everyone seems to love it. Unfortunately I was sent a colour that was waaay out of my skin range. I tried it on and yes it did make my face dewy, but it also looked a bit TOO dewy, almost greasey. It was sheer and had a very low coverage, so I had to use more of it, and then it just looked weird. I couldn’t make it work for me.
Have you tried it before? Do you like it?
Anyway, do check out the rest of the 3CE Producst at Sephora.
The prices are very reasonable and match the prices of global drugstore brands.
If you’ve been keen to try Korean makeup but don’t want to spend a fortune on shipping from Korea, buying from Sephora is a brilliant idea!
