3CEXLilyMaymac - Swatches and Review
I know this has been requested for so here are the swatches and my review for the 3CE Lily MayMac lippies!
First up, I have a love-hate relationship with the packaging. I LOVE the rose-gold but the surface collects thumbprints and make it look super gross after awhile leh.
Swatches of all three shades and if you've seen my previous #fotds, you will know I'm obsessed with Holy Rose. It's a constant in my bag now.
Lip swatches! #908 WARM&SWEET is a pretty shade that highly reminds me of Kylie's Ginger but in a slightly lighter tone when sheered out! In fact, this shade is the only one so far I've seen that really seemed to resemble that shade on my lips. It's really a pretty sunset orange shade.
#118 HOLY ROSE is my HG as of now. It's really a lovely blue-toned rose shade that seemed to complement a lot of skin tones. Makes u look fairer! Haha
At first, I thought #119 HOLD ON would be too pale for me but it also turned out to be a super cute nude shade on me! Doesn't make me look sickly or anything. I really can't pull off very light shades so even when I get sets of lipsticks, I avoid the paler shades cause it makes me look ghostly. This one tho, super cute!
I love that I can rock all three shades even the lightest one. I always always have issues with light shades but this one just turned out to be a nice nude.
HOWEVER, I must add that the formula for these are one of the WORST I've ever tried. Like it's SUPER patchy, SUPER dry and just really hard to apply. But upon application, they aren't uncomfortable at all. I don't find them particularly drying or anything!
What I prefer to do is apply a layer of balm before, dab on the shade and use my finger to blend the shade in. It's definitely WAY easier than using from the tube straight.
Have been enjoying applying all my lippes these way recently cause I'm obsessed with Pearypie.
Pearypie does this technique the best leh, I feel. She blends the lipstick from inner to outer area and gives it that blurry edge effect. Really v nice. It's my latest obsession.
Looks great even if u wanna do gradient or full-lip color. Y SHE SO PREETZZZZ 😍😍😍 I can't take it omg.
