Stylenanda 3CE Triple Shadow Review and Swatches

As promised in my 3CE Haul post, here's my review on these amazing shadows from 3 Concept Eyes.

3CE single pan shadows are huge and I have reviewed one of them (One Color Shadow #Saturn) before courtesy of bntnews International. I definitely wouldn't be able to finish that one pan of shadow so I thought it would be great to try out their Triple Shadows instead. For the same size as of the single pan shadows, you get 3 complimentary shadows that you can do an entire eye look with. 

# No No No

#No No No is the combination I would mostly associate with fall since it has plum and taupe colors in it. 

The first shade on the left is a taupe and has a shimmer finish. Swatched, it seems to be a little on the sheer side. I tried using it several ways and it works beautifully and perfectly as a blending/transition color, an inner corner highlight, or as a layer on top of a darker shadow for an added pop. 

The middle shade is a deep plum with hints of gold in it. In fact, this swatches closely to #Saturn, albeit this one is more purple and #Saturn has more red. It is a great one color shadow and you can definitely build it up and deepen it. 

The last shade is a pale gold shimmer. This one has more prominent shimmers than the taupe shadow. This works well as inner corner highlight. Using a finger to apply this shadow sheers this out as well so you can also use this to highlight different parts of the face.

#Body to Body

#Body to Body is something that I would associate with summer. It is girly, peachy and is great for a flirty natural look. 

The first shade is a rose gold with gold glitters in it. It is pigmented but you can definitely sheer it out with a finger or a brush. you can wear this on its own on your lids and you're good to go. 

The next shade is a frosty pale peach pink that is great as a highlighter. In fact, it reminds me of the lighter shades in MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde.

Last shade is a peach with a frost finish as well which can be used either as a highlighter all over lid shade. 

#More Brown

#More Brown caters to my love of neutral shadows. It is my most used trio recently and it has been in my makeup bag. It is so easy to use and it is very similar to my all time favorite Wet n Wild Trio which is Walking on Eggshells.

All three shades are in a satin finish with hints of gold in it which makes it warm for the eyes. The first shade is the highlight shade which is a nude, the middle is a golden brown and the last is a deep brown. The middle and last shade are both great as all over lid shades.

3CE has done it again and didn't disappoint! I am so impressed by all the shadows. All were buttery smooth, blendable, buildable and pigmented. They are so easy to work with and it can definitely take you from day to night. 

Check out Stylenanda and 3 Concept Eyes for more makeup products. The Triple Shadows retails for $23.12 a piece but it is so worth it. There's also 2 more shades that I didn't get but would love to have my hands on next time - #Tin Tin & #Let Me See.
