The perfect balance between warm and cool and appropriate for all skin tones. Simply Beautiful is slightly darker than the natural color of the lips with hints of gold and silver shimmer.
3 Custom Color Specialists’ Simply Beautiful shade comes in lipstick, creme-to-powder blush, cheek and lip stain, lipgloss, and sheer lipstick form. This review is for the Simply Beautiful lipstick.
The lipstick tube is made of metal-looking steel-colored plastic that has the “3” logo on the top. Inside, the packaging functions like any other lipstick, with a twist-up base. The packaging is simple and sleek. It’s also lightweight and ideal for traveling with.
Simply Beautiful is a brick-colored red that leans orange. This color is most suitable for people with warm skin-tones (golden, tan, and yellow tones).
The formula is very moisturizing and leaves a sheen finish to the lips. The pigmentation is strong and the color leaves an almost-opaque layer on the skin.
Unfortunately, this lipstick doesn’t contain sun protection, so you will want to apply a clear gloss with SPF on top of the lipstick.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
Because the formula is creamy, it glides onto the lips nicely. You can easily layer the lipstick to build up the color and increase its opacity.
For $21.50, you get 0.1 ounces of lipstick. MAC’s regular lipsticks cost $14.50 and also contain 0.1 ounces, so the 3 Custom Color lipsticks are on the more expensive side.
