I have been meaning to try 3INA for quite some time, actually maybe I have once a while back. I first discovered the brand when it opened its first shop in Covent Garden, London many years ago. However at the time, I was yet to become so beauty obsessed. It was around the time when I started to become more invested so during my one and only trip to the store, I had no idea what to even pick. How times have changed!
Today, I want to talk to you about the 3INA cream eyeshadow in 313 which was included in the Glossy Box Beauty Advent Calendar.
3INA The Cream Eyeshadow Review
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the idea of cream eyeshadow. However, cream eyeshadow does not always have the perfect consistency and texture. Many brands have tried to create such a products, but not that many managed to create something worth wearing. How does the 3INA Cream Eyeshadow compare?
The 3INA Cream Eyeshadow in 313 is super creamy and it just glides onto the skin. The product has an amazing texture. It is not just pretty, but feels incredibly nice to the touch as well. But how does it apply?
Well if you choose to apply the cream eyeshadow 313 from 3INA in a thin layer then the finish is glossy, but also rather sheer. However, it looks really nice and it is perfect for a no makeup or even a French Girl type of style. It look very pretty like this, especially if you blend it out using a tiny sponge or even your finger. You could get away with using a brush as well, but from personal experience sponge and fingers work better.
If you want to experience the full pigmentation of this product, then you will need to apply a ticker layer. Even in a thicker layer, the cream eyeshadow from 3INA does not gather in your natural eye creases, but it takes longer to fully dry. Personally, I did not like the look of it when used in a thicker layer. While it did not gather, it looked strange, it looked like the shadow cracked even though it had not. Maybe it just my eye creases and low forehead, but this look definitely did not do me any favours.
As for the colour, the colour of 313 is a metallic brown almost, but if applied in a thin layer then it looks almost like almost like a gloss; the cream eyeshadow is barely noticeable.
I know that I talked about the product only when applied on it own, but you can also use it as a topper.
Overall, I really liked the texture, the feel and even the colour of this product from 3INA. I think this is a good product. In fact, this is one of the best affordable cream eyeshadows I have tried thus far. However, like I mentioned above, the product did not work well for me when applied in a thicker layer. But it looked amazing in a thin layer. Personally, I really liked this eyeshadow and I will continue to use it. I am tempted to invest in other colours as well. I spotted some really cute ones, such as 312.

I’ve been looking for a good cream eyeshadow for a long time, but they are hard to find! Did this cause any itching/allergy-type reaction around the eyes for you?
No allergy reaction. I do feel the cream on for a while. But not for a long time. I don’t tend to rub my eyes more because of it either. Surprisingly the glossier one might also be a good option for you
