These palettes streamlined my standard morning routine - it's so much easier to do my basic face without having to look at a bunch of containers and try to remember what's next. It took a couple tries to get the right concealer and brow shades, but now, after tinted moisturizer (different brand) I pick up the first palette, and go 1) cream concealer #2, 2) cream blush ('Rebecca's Favorite'), 3) tinted powder #2 over the cream concealer. The second palette goes: 1) brow power #2, 2) eye shadow ('Cool Brown Sugar') and 3) 'Cool Lavender' Lipstick. I finish with lash stain (different brand) and, bam, I'm done - without having to find, open & close six different containers.
At ~$17/pan + shipping, the initial investment can seem a little steep, but there is a huge amount of product - after two years of daily use, I've only had to refill the tinted powder.
BEST customizable palette out there!
really i wanted to review 3CC in general and the lip/cheek stain in particular but can't find the button to add a new product review. I have the refillable palette and really like it too since you can decide what's important- after a certain age if there's no concealer forget it.
The stains are my favorite 3CC product - they are nice colors- couple of very wearable reds and ski bunny is a beautiful fuschia- that last a bit and fade nice.
I really like that 3CC takes the trouble to designate and educate the difference in warm and cool colors/ and makes a version of each for each color.
i agree with all comments here. super lightweight, tres chic, only bummer was paying the $5 shipping & handling since there's no where to buy 3CCs near me in CA. i wish it fit all of my pan products! i have to work up my nerve to depot some BB e/s, and then maybe i'll fill another one. right now i'm only using it for 2 shades of concealer (so 1 pan is empty). also, i've been using what's referred to here as the e/l brush for the concealer, and it works great!
This is the nicest palette I've ever seen!! Beats Stila, MAC, etc big time. I really love this palette, from the platinum grey color which is super chic, the mirror, and also the (light-)weight!!! I hate Stila 8 pan for the reason that it is very heavy and bulky, I loathe bringing it when I travel. This 3CC palette is very slim and light, I love it so much that I'm afraid I'll scratch it :).
I love this so much, I just wish I could pick the kind of brush that fit in it. I love 3CC, and will be trying so much more of this line!
I love this refillable compact! Not only is it aesthetically pleasing with it's outer appearance, it also has a wonderfully large mirror inside as well as the best compact brush I've ever seen inside a compact. On one end is a great liner brush, and on the other end is a soft shadow brush. Inside the compact, there are magnetized spots for three refill pans...you can order eye shadow (which can also be used wet as a liner), concealer, creme to powder blush, brow powder, lipstick & gloss, which will fit in this lovely gem of a compact. I requested 3C to pour a Creme to Powder blush into a refill, although it doesn't specify that you can order this on their website. This is by far, my most favorite refillable compact.
This palette has three empty wells that will fit any 3C eyeshadow, concealer or gloss.
It is a very sturdy case (just like the ones used for the lip palettes, just a smidge bigger) with a great mirror AND a fantastic double-sided brush (shadow and liner). The brush is useable and sturdy and very good quality.
All of this for $13.50, which I think is a steal.
