Three Custom Color Review and Giveaway

Thursday, December 8, 2011

This week inadvertently turned into a beauty week with my Beauty faves and my hair tutorial, so I thought I'd end the week with a review of a fabulous lip palette and a giveaway!

Three Custom Color Specialists asked me to pick out something from their website and I veered toward the lipstick because I've always heard great things about their lipsticks but when I saw this lip palette, I had to have it.
It's the Shimmering Lights palette and I just really loved the range of colors from the nudes to the reds to the pinks.  When I got it though, what I really liked about it was just how sheer the colors really were.  I've been trying the whole bright lipstick thing and finally after seeing several pictures of myself, decided that I prefered light to nude colors on me better.  I won't give up the hot pink lipstick as I think it's still a lot of fun but for normal daily wear, I stick with a much more natural color for my lips.  I did a little swatch of all the colors here and as you can see the color variation isn't too dramatic so all the colors are great for blending and layering.  If I want a nude with a hint of pink, I can do that or if I just want a more pink tone, I just layer a few of the pinks together.  They all go on very sheer, in the below color swatches I had to go over at least 3-4 times to get the color to be that noticeable.
The lipstick itself is very moisturizing and with the brush that's included, it's really easy to apply.  I hate too stiff lipstick brushes so this one applies just the right amount of color.  I would totally recommend this palettte to someone like me that likes to stick to natural shades.  I like to play up my eyes more and I've found that all these colors go great with a smokey eye.  The palette is small enough to fit into my purse quite nicely and the mirror is a great size.  Oh! and the lipsticks do not have any sort of fragrance which is always a plus in my book. 

I've never used this brand before but I am very impressed with this lipstick and looking around on the website, I want to try a lot more stuff!  I'm a huge fan of palettes so I am thinking of ordering their Perfectly Pink lip palette next and also love their Daytime Drama Collection palette as well.

Well, I wanted to give you guys a chance to play around with this brand as well so I'm giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 Custom so that you can choose something fab for yourself!
