I reached out to 3 custom with a strange request: black lip stain (like a benetint sort of product). They offer a lip-and-cheek stain in several ready-to-wear colors, but custom colors are not advertised on their website. Still, when I e-mailed them they told me they could do it for their regular fee.

Their lip stains work like any other: translucent washes of color that stain the …

One of my all-time favorite lipsticks (Prescriptives Rosemarine) had been discontinued for many years, probably before 3CC was doing business. I had long given up trying to duplicate it until last summer, when I checked the 3CC web site to see if it was in their 'recipe' file. It was! I couldn't believe it. Some blessed MUAer had saved her stub and sent it in. I placed my order …Read more

Recently purchased a discontinued Bobbi Brown (toasted pink): I didn't send in a swatch, but chose to use what 3C had in their archives. I was very happy with the resulting lipstick. I also ordered a Shiseido lipstick (that must have been discontinued when I was in highschool-the eighties!) and got another good match. The consistancy of both lipsticks was matte-creamy, like their …Read more

So, after searching for years, I had finally found the perfect mauvey-brown lipstick from Sephora. And of course, by the time I realized how truly fabulous it was, it had been discontinued! Anyway, after spending too much money trying to find a suitable replacement, I decided to give 3CC a try - and it really was worth the money. I mailed off what was left of my last tube along with a check, and …Read more

*Original review:

It cost $61.50 to receive 2 custom-made lipsticks.

4 weeks after the check had been cashed and no lipsticks received nor any contact from the company, I contacted them to inquire as to when I may expect the package. They replied that it was on its way to me.

Several days later I received the lipsticks. When I viewed the lipstick I was …

I was looking for this kind of service for ages until I heard about Three Custom. I sent them an old, almost empty tube of my beloved Margaret Astor lipstick and had to wait for about a month to see the result of their custom blending. Normally it takes about three weeks, but since I live in Europe shipping took quite a while as well.
The handmade lipsticks come in a sleek grey metal tube …

Since my HG lipstick was discontinued several years ago (Prescriptives Burnt Sugar), I have spent countless dollars trying to get the same look, often buying misguided colors that ended up in the trash. I've also worn many other gorgeous lipsticks and glosses in the meantime, but that lipstick was magic on me in a way nothing else ever has been -- not my lips but better but one notch up …Read more

Stila Fiona is my holy grail lip color but it dries out my lips. I sent it to 3 Custom Color and asked them to duplicate the color in a more moisturizing formula. It took almost 3 weeks but was very successful. I now have two tubes of my favorite lip color in a very creamy formula. I don't mind the look of the plain black tube but the quality of it sucks. The lipstick seems to not be …Read more

The color and consistency match of my discontinued i nuovi lipstick (crypto) is phenomenal. I ordered four tubes at once, for $87, including shipping. The order took longer than I expected, and I received no communication (e.g., no confirmation e-mail) in the process, but once I received the order I was completely satisfied. The specialist even had included - at my request - some names of …Read more
