Review: 3CE Mood Recipe 2 Matte Lip Color and Velvet Lip Tint

Published on by Riame

Hi guys! I purchased some products from Stylenanda recently, mostly lip products and I'm excited to share with you my thoughts on these! I am loving the color scheme of the Mood Recipe Collection series.

Review: 3CE Mood Recipe 2 Matte Lip Color and Velvet Lip Tint

3CE Velvet Lip Tint

Good Part
♥ Pretty packaging
♥ Velvet-like texture 
♥ Really creamy and non-drying when first applied
♥ Soft matte finish

Bad Part
♥ Lips feel progressively drier over time 

#220 Hit me up = Described as a gentle orange brown shade (reminds me of a burnt orange gingerbread man).

#220 Hit me up = Described as a gentle orange brown shade (reminds me of a burnt orange gingerbread man).

What I thought

I was looking for a burnt orange lipstick for ages and this colour fit what I was looking for. The shade reminds me of a burnt orange gingerbread man and it's gorgeous! I like the creamy texture of this lipstick even though it is a matte but something I noticed was that it got drier over time. At around 2-3 hours, my lips felt so dry... like a dry prune. Maybe also because my lips are usually on the drier side anyways but I definitely recommend you to exfoliate and moisturise your lips so they don't feel so dry when applying this product.

Lasting power is average, around 3-4 hours, maybe longer if you don't eat. I really like the colour but the formula isn't 3CE's best in my opinion. 

Rating: ♥♥♥ 3.5/5

 

#221 Mellowflower = Described as a feminine rosy red colour

#221 Mellowflower = Described as a feminine rosy red colour

What I thought

Gorgeous colour once again. It's like a rosy red pink shade and it appears a lot darker on the lips compared to Stylenanda's website photo and swatch. I would even consider it a deep rosy red pink. Formula is the same as Hit me up so creamy when first applied but gets pretty dry over time.

Rating: ♥♥♥ 3.5/5

Going right = Described as a calm rosy peach colour

Going right = Described as a calm rosy peach colour

What I thought

I definitely like this formula a lot better than the matte lip color. It has a velvet smooth texture that looks amazing when applied fresh to the lips. Like a soft matte lipstick. I also love the colour. Styenanda's website description on this shade is perfect, "Calm rosy peach colour". It is exactly that! On my arm swatches, 'Going right' looks like a dark beige nude peachy pink MLBB but when you apply it to the lips, the colour lightens into a rosy peach colour (check my lip swatches to see).

In terms of tinting, it doesn't really 'tint' the lips but it does last so I guess you could still consider this a tint. Lasting power is around 4-5 hours. The only negative thing I have to say about this item is that it makes my lips feel progressively drier over time. Like at around the 3-4 hour mark, my lips started to look really dry (basically like the mood recipe 2 matte lip color). Other than that, this product is great! Definitely recommend it!!

Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4.5/5

I’m enjoying how long these last while drinking, and it last most the day! I don’t usually like Matte lip color, but these did go on smoothly, and had a gloss to them. The colors are nice, but a few of them were a bit too dark for my skin tone, and my age. I noticed a scent to each one; a few even smelled a bit like cookies or fresh baked goodies. A few others had a bit of a funny scent to it, that I can’t describe. I like the shape of the wand, it helps keep the color where it needs to be.
