Beauty Review: Pops of Colour with Three Custom Color Specialists!

Photo L-R: Poppy Lip and Cheek Stain, Light Bright Lipsticks in Area and Palladium, Eye Shadow in Peacock and Mascara in Black

My makeup bag has lost about 20 lbs since receiving these lovely products. These pretty much have become my makeup staples for Spring/Summer (although I'll probably wear them all year round). If you want sheer, wearable, bright colours this season Three Custom is where it's at!

Top to Bottom:

Light Brights Lipstick in Area ($18.50 USD): It's all about the DayGlo brights of the '80's and bringing them into the present in sheerer textures. Area, named after one of the hottest clubs of the '80's in New York City, is a juicy bright tangerine. The moist balm base delivers moisturized lips with sheer brightness. When you first apply this colour, it is barely noticeable but applied a few times becomes a warm wearable orange. I love it! Area looks amazing when paired with bronze skin and Three Custom's Poppy Lip and Cheek Stain. These lipsticks are actually a moisturizing stain and lasts for hours. I also applied this onto my cheeks and it gave me a nice orange-peach dewy stain. All colours in the line are made to suit any skin tone. If you usually shy away from colour on your lips Light Brights are the perfect choice!

Poppy Lip and Cheek Stain ($20.50 USD): Love, love, LOVE this product! This stain blends really well and leaves a dewy glow on the cheeks. This warm bold coral is a colour that will look beautiful on any skin tone. It gives the skin a healthy flush like you've been playing some beach volleyball in the hot sun. Apply bronzer where the sun naturally hits you and dab on Poppy onto the apples of the cheeks to mimic the effect. Dab some onto the lips to finish the look. For some evening glitz swipe on a shimmery gloss. I love 2 in 1 products because they cut my makeup time in half and take up less room in my makeup bag. The compact includes a handy little mirror for touch-ups, although the stain stays put so no frequent applications. You can also build on the colour for more intensity. This lip and cheek stain is part of the Miami Glamour collection - a definite must-have!

Light Brights Lipstick in Palladium: I have come across a few favourite pink glosses in my time but never a favourite pink lipstick. Palladium, a striking hot pink of colour, has become THE lipstick I reach for all the time now! I love my gloss but it's been replaced for the time being. First swipe, it delivers a lot of juicy colour, not like Area so I like to dab it on first. It just perks up and brightens up my complexion. It looks hot (channeling my inner Paris) with a dash of bronze or gold shadow, and a little bronzer and Palladium on the cheeks. It's buildable and very wearable for day and perfect for a noticeable pout at night. I just love how it stains the lips for a natural effect but moisturizes at the same time. Sometimes gloss in hot weather can feel heavy and can add to an already shiny face. A stain in a bright hue is the perfect choice. Light Brights also come in two other juicy shades: Danceteria, flirty coral, and Limelight, a bright pop of pinky peach. Definite must-haves! Tip: make sure your lips are prepped with lip balm or a primer 5 minutes before applying lip stain. A stain will settle into fine lines and enhance dry chapped lips.

Peacock Eyeshadow ($19.50 USD): This gorgeous pot of teal shadow might seem frighteningly bright but thanks to sheer textures you can wear it day or night! When first applied it gives a nice wash of colour but layered more gives powerful pigment with flecks of shimmer. It's such a pretty colour and would actually look beautiful on anyone. Use as a liner for day and create a bright smoky eye for the evening. This shadow can also be used wet (intense colour) or dry (sheer/natural). Mix this with a gold shadow or purple for playful colour and navy shadow for extra smolder. Compliment this shadow with bronze or coral cheeks and lips. This liner is also apart of the Miami Glamour collection! You receive a free mascara when you purchase the Miami Glamour Collection! Offer ends April 30th so hurry! Click here for details.
