My review today will be on another product from 3CE.
I was hestitating whether to get this because I have quite a number of highlighters already.
But since I only have 1 shading powder (from Melliesh), I decided to give this a go for the sake of the shading powder.
Introducing the Magic Touch Face Maker from 3 Concept Eyes in Pink
I don't know why but the pink one looks kinda beige in real life. I was expecting it to be of a light pink shade.
Thin and Compact. I can save a lot of space with this instead of lugging around 2 compacts separately.
Here's a picture of the swatch near my wrist. I tweaked the lighting in this picture to best show the true colour of the product in real life.
3 Concept Eyes [3CE] by Stylenanda Magic Touch Face Maker in Pink:
Talc, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Cl 77891), Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Phenyl Trimethicone,
Nylon-12, Silica, Magnesium Myristate, Magnesium Stearate, Caprylic/Caric Triglyceride, Dimethiconol Stearate,
, Dimethicone, Methicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tin Oxide (Cl 77861), Methylparaben, Propylparaben,Yellow 5 Lake (Cl 19140), Red 30 (Cl73360), Iron Oxides (Cl 77491)
As of all other 3CE products, this is also clad in black with the logo and words in white, keeping the exterior simple and chic. It is relatively thin and the fact that it contains 2 types of products in one compact justifies the bigger diameter overall.
Color Payoff: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♡♡♡ 7
/10 - Highlighter / ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♡ 9/10 - Shading Powder
The color payoff the the highlighter in this compact is slightly less compared to the previous 3CE highlighter that I reviewed
on. However, this can actually be a plus point as some people tend to overdo their highlighting, perhaps because they are not very good with applying it with a light hand. As for the shading powder, I have to say that I am extremely happy with the shade! It looks kind of dark in the picture as well as in real life but it is actually pretty light when applied on my face! I have always lamented about how the Melliesh one
(linked to review, yes I do understand the links to the pictures are broken, will get new shots taken and re-up them asap!) that I have is a little dark and takes some blending out to tone the shade down but this is of the perfect shade and I don't have to spend extra time brushing the sides of my nose!
Very smooth when I swiped it with my index finger. I did not notice any fallouts when using my finger but did see some when I use a brush with tightly packed bristles, which I believe is inevitable.
Blendability: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♡♡ 8/10
It is easy to blend the product and since it is of a light shade, I recommend doing this with a light hand so as to not overblend.
Lasting Power: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♡♡♡ 7/10
The lighter shade seemed to also mean less longevity in terms of staying power. It probably stayed around 4-5 hours before I had to touch up.
As with my other newer cosmetics from Korea, I bought them during my trip there. I believe they do not have an official offline store in Singapore (I'm not sure if I.T Singapore brought them in together with Stylenanda's clothing line). However, there are quite a few online stores selling it but once again, do be very careful when buying online. Do not look for a cheap deal and expect an authentic product. You can see the prices in Stylenanda's official website. Anything below is most likely not going to be authentic, no matter how real the pictures look (Remember, they can be stock photos or photos taken elsewhere!)
Like their highlighter, this is as affordable and may I say that it is actually more worth it too? I bought this at only 13,900 won and for a product which has both highlighter and contouring powder, it is definitely a steal. Now, if only they can lower the prices of their lip products too...
Repurchase: Yes! At this price point and how efficient it has proven, I am actually looking to get the beige one too!
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
I really liked this and it definitely would have gotten a 9 or 9.5 if the staying powder of the product performed better.
My next review will likely be another 3CE product, most likely their lipstick?
