3CE Lipstick Reviews and Swatches: Bella and Burnt Red

Sunday, 5 July 2015



Whenever I'm looking at lipstick on a beauty counter, my hand automatically reaches towards the darker shades. Throw in a friendly/persuasive sales assistant and my hand begins placing the lipsticks into a basket and before I know it I'm buying more lipstick than I need. Again. But generally I'm very happy with my purchases and these two gorgeous shades from 3CE are no exception. I thought I'd do a two-in-one review since these lipsticks are pretty much the same aside from their colours.

The packaging: I have to say that this brand's packaging is ridiculously photogenic. I really love the cuboid packaging and semi-matte finish on the plastic. If you aren't a fan of black then 3CE also have pink packaging available.

The pigmentation: These are nicely build-able, which is handy for darker shades.

The application: They both go on pretty smoothly.

The colours:

Bella

I admit - about 70% of the reason I bought this shade was because of the name. The thought process went something like "Bella...that's kinda really close to my name...I shall make it my signature shade!". And that I have done! It's a gorgeous dark pink shade which isn't overly dramatic, so I find it easy to wear on a regular basis.

Burnt Red

Despite looking dark purple in the tube, the name of this one is true to its colour. I wanted something vampy to replace my expired Revlon Black Cherry and this has managed to take its place perfectly.

Overall: I really love both of these lipsticks and they've been great additions to my unnecessarily large collection.
