Hello, Stranger! Today we’ll be talking about 3ce’s
Clear Layer Edition in Cool. Don’t worry I’ll also
be releasing a separate in-depth review for Warm
but for now let’s see what the Clear Layer Edition in cool has to offer. At first look, you can
definitely see that the Clear Layer Edition
revolves around muted pinks, plumps,
mauves and lavenders designed to manifest
a calm yet dreamy mood so let’s see if we finish
this video manifesting just that. Starting off
first with the soft mattes. Three new shades are
introduced in this collection namely: Way Back,
Hazy Rose and Chill Move. This is the first
time I’m experiencing the soft mattes and
at first i thought the product itself
was too little compared to the usual
mattes but actually they have the same net
weight, just different styles of packaging.
You can definitely feel the
silicone as you swatch the soft mattes
since they glide very smoothly and
has a blurring effect on the lips
that doesn’t crack after a long wear. These soft
mattes pack in a strikingly saturated color payoff
even with a very light hand which you can layer
or build up just like the usual mattes, so I’m pretty
sure one of these is going
Trust me. Now here comes the transfer proof proof.
They also layer very well over balms
if you want to turn mattes to glossy,
or layer two soft mattes
like a gradient lip effect.
They retain their true colors on the lips pretty
well but I did have a problem with the lippies
breaking off. Noted I did swatch with a very heavy
hand because I wanted a nice solid swatch but I
was just surprised because this never happened to
my 3ce lip color mattes. I did do a quick fix with some little
heat to kind of paste the lippies back in place.
They’re not entirely good as new but this will do.
The lippies felt very fragile and if you’re
living in a very hot or humid country
you might experience these break
offs if you don’t store them well.
Luckily, these lippies have great pigmentation
so even if you swipe with a very very light hand,
you’d still get a good amount of product. Starting
off with Way Back. I didn’t know what I was in
for until I wore them on the lips. They are the
perfect nude pink shade for really fair skin tones.
It doesn’t make me look washed out or sick. This
is definitely a new shade that I don’t see often,
especially not with the way it looks on
me. Definitely, definitely glad I got this.
This is also great to use as a lighter
shade if you’re going with a gradient lip.
Also, this was the only one that didn’t break on me
so, so far this is my fave on the soft matte line.
Next is Hazy Rose, described as a vintage rose
color. This reminds me a lot of my favorite 3ce
matte lipstick which is Old Dress. The difference
is Hazy Rose is a lot brighter while Old Dress
is more of a muted mauve. This color really
brightens the complexion and lifts up
the overall aura of your face. This
is great paired with Way Back for a gradient look.
Lastly is chill move
described as a berry and muted plum color.
This is definitely more of a mauve
color compared to Way Back and Hazy Rose.
The deepness of the shade makes it perfect
for a more intense or dramatic look without
going too vampy. Compared to Hazy Rose and Way
Back, I feel like this shade goes on dry on the
lips. Not as smooth as the first two shades and
it also kind of shows the lip lines a lot more.
And that’s it for the new soft matte
shades included in the Cool edition!
These can be easily cleaned up by
micellar water or normal makeup remover.
Now, to pair that up part of this edition
is 3ce’s Multi Eye Color Palette in Some Def
which takes on somewhat the same color mood
that we had going on with the soft mattes.
The Stylenanda site describes this as a
curation of harmonious lavender shades.
Generally, the pigments feel very smooth when
swatched and very solid. For the mattes, they
have good color payoff and don’t apply patchy on
the eyes even the very light colors. The glitters
are amazing. They stay in place once applied on
the eyes so you don’t have to worry too much
from getting glitters in your eyes. My biggest
concern though which you would also notice
once I do my makeup look is the amount of fall
off. Right off the pan, once you dip your brushes,
you definitely see the amount of powder coming
off which could be kind of messy once applying
your makeup but after you have your makeup on
place, they don’t really move around or budge
throughout the day even without primer.
The color story here leans more on mauves
and warm colors rather than bright cool toned
pinks which at first i thought would be the case
because Cool edition but anyways, what better
way to introduce a palette but with swatches!
Since the site never mentioned if each shade
had the name so, I’ll be swatching the palette
with a reference for you to know which is
which. First off, we have this micro glitter
with gold silver and blue shift with a
very solid hint of light pink pigment.
Next is a very light whitish beige, great as a base.
A blush beige pink which is not only
great on the eyes but also great as a blush.
A muted lilac color. Very faint
can also be used as a base color.
A warm pink which looks a little bit
more red on camera but actually in person
it’s a lot more pink. This
can also be used as a blush.
A lavender brown shade with silver red shift
A creamy textured cool brown shade
with a metallic sheen mixed with a lot more
red with gold shift micro glitters.
Another creamy texture. We have this rose gold glitter.
Very luminous and definitely one of my faves.
A taupe color which is perfect
for contour or adding definition.
The makeup look I’m going
for today is a more vibrant
bright makeup look utilizing more of the bright
shimmers and the warm pinks and lavenders.
So to start, I’m going to prime my eyes
with my urban decay primer potion and
I’m going to take this light lilac shade
and apply it on the lids and my lower
lashes. This will serve as kind
of like a base for the whole look.
Then I’m going to take the warm pink color in
the middle and apply that at the inner half
of my lid and the outer half of my lid kind of
leaving out the middle portion like when you’re
creating halo eyes. I’m also going to take that
same color and brush that at my lower lashes
keeping close to the outer corners. You can
definitely see that there is a lot of fall
off so I’m gonna have to clean that up afterwards but my suggestion is it’s probably best to put on
your eye look first before putting on foundation
just so you wouldn’t waste your foundation.
Then, I’m gonna take the blush pink color and
with a blending brush. I’m gonna blend that
into my crease and up high a little bit since I
have hooded eyes and I want the color to be seen.
Now, I’m going to take the shimmer
with really light pink pigment
and apply that in the middle of my lids
where i left out the warm pink color.
And that’s going to be like one
of the highlights of this look.
Then, with my favorite rose gold cream shimmer I’m
gonna start applying this on the inner corners of
my eyes then spread it into the inner one-fourth
or half of my lids and that’s really gonna make a
beautiful iridescent addition to the look. And
just to make it a little bit bolder I’m gonna
take the same rose gold shimmer and apply that
into the corners just below my lower lashes. Just
be careful though with putting the shimmers or the
glitters because you don’t want that in your eyes.
Now I’m gonna finish off the eye look by
curling my lashes and putting on some mascara.
I already did my brows before
this so that’s all good.
Next, for the blush I’m going to take a small
fluffy brush and I’m going to take the warm
pink color and apply that at my upper cheekbone
and spread that lower without getting too much
into the middle of my cheeks because then i’ll be
taking the blush pink color and that’s where i’m
going to put it just to give out a diffused effect. Then I’m going to finish off with a gradient lip
with Hazy Rose on the inner area of my lips
and Way Back as a diffused color and that’s it!
