Casual Sundays | Thoughts on 3INA Foundation

I had not heard of 3INA Cosmetics till I walked past the store after work and I was captivated by the whole ambience from outside.  You can find 3INA Cosmetics in Melbourne Central and Southland.

The whole store is very clean, bright and sleek, with the addition of bright colourful products on the gondola making the whole place fun to just wander around.  I went into the store aimlessly but as soon as I stepped in, I knew what I was looking for.... Hah! A new foundation, WHY NOT, right?  

Introducing a new addition to my foundation collection,

3INA ~ The 3 in 1 Foundation ~

The packaging reminds me of the Nars Sheer Glow foundation, don't you think so? ~ From the lid, to the shape and the size too!!  It has a frosty glass body. The pump is pretty average but it dispenses a decent amount of foundation out. For the price I had to pay, I couldn't ask for a better pump. Nars Sheer Glow on the other hand, doesn't come with a pump so I am not complaining because ultimately, the foundation works well on my skin :) 

The texture on the skin is beautiful and it evened out my oily skin. It has a demi-matte finish with an SPF 15. I wouldn't recommend using this foundation if you plan to take lots of flash photography as you might have a flashback white cast on all your photos. 

The longevity of the foundation is pretty fantastic. I wasn't expecting much because I had not heard or read any reviews on this foundation yet.  Truthfully, I am impressed!  I wore the foundation for a good 12 hours. After wearing it for around 6.5 hours, I observed some sheen/glow on my cheek and nose but nothing too drastic. I was jumping head over heals (not something you can see... just in my heart lol) because I didn't think that the foundation is any good but man.... LOVE LOVE LOVE 

What is your favourite foundation at the moment? What finishes do you like? Dewy, Matte or demi matte finish? Do share your thoughts xx
