REVIEW: 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter (Beige)

Today, I'll be reviewing the 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter in Beige, courtesy of Cupidrop.com! If you know me, you know that 3CE is one of my favorite beauty brands in the history of EVER and I am completely obsessed with them! That's why, I was so ecstatic to find out that Cupidrop, one of my preferred online K-beauty retailers, started carrying them. :D As popular as 3CE is, there can be a lot of fakes floating around especially on sites that sell them from overseas, so I'm glad a trusted site is now carrying them in the US!





3 CONCEPT EYES HIGHLIGHTER

The soft shimmering satin veil ushers the appearance of gorgeous, three-dimensional beauty, and the creamy powder texture of this highlighter allows it to stick on skin for radiant, skin.


Like most 3CE packaging, the highlighter comes in an all matte black compact that looks very simple, but chic. Hidden underneath the highlighter is a secret brush compartment that houses a small, flat brush that can be used to apply the highlighter. The flat dome-shaped brush itself is nothing particularly special, but it picks up enough product to add a nice subtle sheen. I prefer to use my own brush for highlighting than the one that's included, but for on-the-go application or touch-ups, it does a fairly decent job sweeping on the powder!


The compact is easy to open, although it's slightly bulky which can be attributed to the hidden brush compartment. The actual highlighter pan itself is very slim and thin, so most of the added chunkiness is because of the brush. It also has a small, but handy mirror that makes it perfect for traveling and bringing on-the-go!


The 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter is a powder highlighter that's surprisingly super soft and velvety to the touch. It's not chalky at all and goes smoothly onto the skin while instantly brightening up the face. It adheres well to the skin without clinging to dry spots or applying patchily -- it gives a very natural, almost-flawless finish!

The 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter in Beige is a gorgeous shimmering beige shade with a soft golden pearlescent finish. It's truly the perfect shade that would compliment most, if not all, skin tones! It's a shimmery highlighter, but is very finely milled so there's no chunky bits of glitter! It also blends out really easily into the skin and creates a soft, natural sheen that really lights up the face when applied.


The highlighter is not strongly pigmented and leans towards the sheer side of the spectrum. Personally, I really like the pigmentation of this highlighter since it's perfect for a more natural glow, especially for everyday wear. Luckily, the color IS buildable, so you can achieve a more natural and subtle glow with one swipe, or you can layer it for a more intense, luminous shine. I have to admit though, even after building up the color (3 swipes), it still pales in comparison to the intense pigmentation of western highlighters. All in all, I would definitely recommend this to those that are looking for a more natural sheen. Those looking for intense lightbeams might want to skip over this one.




Here are some photos and a close up of me wearing the 3CE Highlighter in Beige! :D I applied it to the top of my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and in my t-zone area. BTW, these photos are taken with flash so I could make the highlighted areas more noticeable, but in real life the highlight is more subtle!





FINAL THOUGHTS?

The 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter is a gorgeous shimmery beige with tiny, finely milled golden particles with a pearlescent finish. It comes with a handy brush with its own hidden compartment underneath the highlighter pan and also a nifty mirror that makes it perfect for traveling or touching up on-the-go! However, the highlighter isn't strongly pigmented, so I would recommend this to those that are looking for a more soft and natural sheen. The formula is buildable for a more intense luminous glow, but it can only add so much which in the end is a lot more pigmented but still a natural sheen. I actually prefer a natural-looking, subtle highlight so it's perfect for everyday wear when I'm looking for a soft glow.


The 3 Concept Eyes Highlighter retails for $16 and is available in two different shades (Beige and Gold Pink) at Cupidrop.com! It's also available on Amazon, HERE!
