As you know, internet can be a scary place and a new help for you. For me, I'm the person that always using internet everyday. But, hey, who's not? In this era, everyone finding it so easy to do everything with internet. Buying food, learning make up, finding inspiration, even sometimes searching for help with whatever thing you struggle with. Like me, even when I have something going on, like stomachache, I decided to search up in internet. How to cure my stomachache, and luckily, its working! So, I think that why not giving people information that they need just by clicking your computer.
There's this thing that I always do, shopping. People may think that I have some addiction with it. But let's be real, shopping can cure your broken heart and gloomy days, so why not? The thing that I buy when I go to shopping is always different. I never make a list what to buy, I'm a spontaneous person. And sometimes when I open up my drawer, I found things that I even forget how it get there. So, why not making it into good thing? I decided that I will do some review in food, make up, clothes, accessories, anything that I buy or I like.
Going on, this is my first review in make up. Its going to be a lot of mistakes, but I hope you guys understand and giving me your feedback. What do you think about the way I do review in products. Last October, I changed some of my make up products to Korea Brand. Why I did that? Its simple. To me, Korea products fits me well since I'm Asian, the shade, the texture, even the price. And until now I quite satisfied with some of Korea products. I will review it again in another post. But for today post, I do the review for 3CE Lip Pigment.
3CE itself, became really famous in 2014-2015 in Asia. You can find the products in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia. Indonesian, you're not so lucky. Cause these products are available in a lot of online shop, but I don't know how trusted the online shop is. Whether its an original product or fake. Cause I found that now Bangkok is selling a lot of fake 3CEs. For Singapore and Malaysia you can find it in Sephora. They have the basic stuff but not too complete unlike Thailand. In Bangkok, I purchased some of the stuffs, and luckily when I went to Malaysia, I can't find it. Like the brushes, you have to purchase it in Thailand. Because Sephora doesn't provide that and the make up bags. Also the option is not really diverse. Because in Thailand, they have the official store adjoin with Style Nanda in Emquartier Shopping Mall. Emquartier is a new shopping mall in Thailand that targeted the upper middle class. Its quite complicated where the 3CE located and also some of the Thai people that I asked not really good in English, so I can't find it quickly, but after asking some people, I get to get there. Since I live in Indonesia, shopping in other country means you have to compare the currency. Of course, Singapore is not your option. Because the SGD is going crazy these past months. It made the price of some products are more expensive if you compare it to Thailand or Malaysia currency. So which country in the cheapest for the 3CE products? You will quite surprise. Its Malaysia. Yes, if you compare your Indonesian Rupiah to others, you can take home more products from Malaysia rather than Thailand. I know its confusing you, because Baht is cheaper than Ringgit. In Sephora Malaysia, I settled. I have to buy these products cause I love the lipstick and I think that it will goes the same with another products.
For the Lip Pigment, you can find it in various color. But since I conclude that some of my lipstick are only red, I want to try another color. I choose the "Electric Pink" and "Bright Orange". Orange is quite new for me. I never have orange color before. But after addicted to K-Drama, K-Pop and a lot of another Ks, I'm quite curious with the orange color that they use in many K-pop MV and CF. Little information for you, if you have fair skin, orange will suit you really well!
As you can see, the packaging is really cute. Its small and its easy to take it anywhere even in your flight cause its only 11Grams. To open the top, you have to turn it around. After using the product, you better have to turn it really well, because of the texture, it will be really messy and dry the product makes it hard to push it when you want to use it again. As you can see, before we open the product, there will be a sticker in hangul.
The texture is not sticky at all. It look like a paint color. But what really fun is, the result is not that bright and matte. If you open up to 3CE's youtube channel, you can see how they teach you to use this product. The boxes and product itself all written in Hangul. People who can't read Korean, surely not understand what's the meaning, will find the youtube channel really helpful.
I really love the electro pink. I can use it as a daily lipstick also because the color is so Korean and cute. Not too bright like NYX's lip cream. But for the bright orange, after you apply it to your lips, the color will be like "coral" color. Not bright but still pretty. For you who don't like color that not stand out, you surely won't like this bright orange.
To apply the lip pigment, it will be a little bit hard if you don't have the lisptick brush. It will smudge and uneven. Some of Korean make up always do their lips brighter in the inside and fade in the outside to create a cute and innocent look. That's why, with brush, it will be easier for you to apply it and look neat. If you don't have a lipstick brush, don't worry! You can use cotton bud to apply it as your lisptick brush. For the pigmentation, it will look natural. So, 3CE shop assistant give me an advice to use the 3CE concealer as a base before applying the lip pigment. For the quality of the product, I will give 4/5. Its not hard to understand how to use this product. Its 123 to people who really like make ups. But for the last of this lip pigment, I'm not quite sure its long lasting like lip tint. If you happened to use it for party that required you a lot of drinking and eating, you have to prepare to bring this beauty into your make up pouch. But its not bad that last really quick. But from my experience, its not stay long if you do a lot of eating and drinking. If you happened to use it only for meeting or going to some places that doesn't really need too much eating and drinking, these beauty will satisfied you.
So, what do you think of it? If you already have the product, are you satisfied with it? If you don't have the product yet, are you going to buy it? Don't forget to comment below and share your make up journey with me!
