Beauty addicts out there, if you haven’t heard of new Italian beauty brand 3INA (pronounced as ‘Mina’), here’s one good reason why you should familiarise yourself with our latest #makeupobsession: It’s actually known as the first “mastige” makeup brand (a cross between prestige and mass-market) that has the quality formulas of luxe brands but with at a fraction of the cost. In simpler terms, you can get smashing foundations, concealers, lippies, nail colours and even a line of skincare products that feels like top-tier products, but without exceedingly expensive prices.
3INA recently opened its first flagship boutique in Covent Garden, London, in February 2016, with stores located Greece, Italy, Malta and Australia; and its concept actually took two years to formulate by founders Pablo Rivera and Mark Eve. Its business model the company to place new products on the market in four months, despite taking years to produce a line. 3INA is also backed by the beauty and product development experts whose previous chops include Kiko Milano, Sephora, and Net-A-Porter.
If that doesn’t impress you enough just yet, 3INA’s product price range is between EUR4 – 20, and let’s be real – where else can you find a solid, pigmented lipstick at EUR6 a pop with 24 colours to choose from, or even long-wearing nail polish at the same price with a whopping 90 shades?
