Re the 3CC deal I posted. It does not combine with the $50 Groupon deal. Some of you like me :D, got in on the $25 for $50 3CC Gift Certificate offer by Groupon. If you did get that gift certificate & would like to use it with this deal, your order total needs to be over $125. I verified this by calling in 😀

Nonetheless this is an amazing deal! 14 lip liners?! That’s crazy of 3CC to offer this & $75 out of pocket is still a great deal considering that you get to try some of their amazing products as well! 😀

Got the no color powder, #5 concealer, Caramel Rose Lip & Cheek Stain & warm bronzer in my cart. What will be in your cart?

Three Custom Color (3CC) Specialist Lipstick in Noir

I pondered upon which product I wanted to post about first & this lipstick really excited me so here it is!

Three Custom Color (3CC) Specialist Lipstick in Noir (US$21.50)

Picture of the lipstick.

This is inspired by the black matte lips that had been ruled the runways for Spring 2010. I don’t know about you but black matte lips are not something I find appealing on a everyday basis. Hence the creation of the noir lipstick & lipgloss, which is 3CC’s solution of translating the black lips off the runway.

This lipstick really reminds me of Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey (will do a comparison picture at another time). On my lips, this gives me the look of a sheer plumish vampish look. Or like I ate a juicy plum & it stained my lips the same juicy purple. Definitely sexy! I can see myself wearing this with black eyeliner for a Morticia Addams look.

It has a slight sheen (as you can see from the picture with the flash) & a moisturizing feel to it. It’s also sheer which is good as you can build on the coverage. I tried blotting my lips & reapplying the lipstick but I never got to the color in the tube. Staying power is moderate.

This is also great for applying over those super bright lipsticks you will never wear to tone it down a little.

Cons: I have dry flakey lips & this did apply unevenly over those patches. However this is something I noted with almost all of my sheer lipsticks. Some might find this a little cool toned (after multiple coats) although it is supposed to work for all skintones. Another thing that bugs me is that the lipstick protrudes a little even after it is swiveled all the way down. I had to be careful when capping the lipstick to prevent nicking it. No biggie but it’s an extra step.

Conclusion: This is a wearable black lipstick that everyone should have in their arsenal 😀
