On my visit I picked up the:-
- 3ina Pencil Eyeshadow in 100 – Brown with a Matte Finish
- 3ina Pencil Eyeshadow in 108 – Champagne with Shimmer Finish
And even though 3ina does not emphasise the difference between these pencil eyeshadows instore or on their packages, the formulations of these eyeshadows feel very different to each other.
The 3ina Pencil Eyeshadow in 100 is quite stiff and has a rubbery texture that I’m not really a fan of. I could see myself using this 3ina pencil eyeshadow as a base for a neutral, smoky eye as I do not think the matte shades are very flattering on my own ( but that’s just my personal opinion.
The 3ina Pencil Eyeshadow in 108 is a gorgeous, shimmery, champagne colour but I don’t think it is very creamy and is a little stiff. I do quite like the longevity of this pencil eyeshadow as it took a bit of elbow grease to remove my arm swatch and it lasted all day when worn on the eyes which is great!!
To give you a bit of background about the Mui Mui Eau de Parfum Perfume, it is the first perfume from the Miu Miu and was developed to be a “unique, youthful yet sophisticated perfume encompassed in bright colours. The Miu Miu EDP is meant to be quite a soft, floral fragrance but for me and my nose I think the Akigalawood inclusion completely overshadows the other scents in this fragrance to the point that you just can’t smell them.
I personally feel that this is quite poor considering that the focus of the Miu Miu Eau de Parfum is meant to be on the lily of the valley flowers chosen for this fragrance.
Looking at the reviews of this Miu Miu fragrance online, I think this perfume falls into a “Marmite – Some people love it, Some people loathe it’ category. Personally it is not for me and I wouldn’t think to buy this perfume for someone but if you happen to be a fan of spicy, woody fragrances then you might love this
