Review: 3 Custom Color Specialists

- Ski Bunny Lip & Cheek Stain ($20.50) - A sheer, cherry balm with a slight swirl of shimmer that creates a fresh, youthful glow. Rub your finger around a lil bit on the pot and then dab it into the center of the lips for a beautiful, subtly bright pop of color. It looks equally flushed and natural on the cheeks. This is my new favorite. A new purse staple.

- Clarifier Pencil ($14) - These eye pencils are designed to be worn on the inner rim of the eye or along the lash line. The clarifier pencils are used on the inner rim of the eye to brighten and widen. Light is good for fair-medium skin and dark is good for medium-dark tones. These pencils are also great for highlighting under the brow and as a spot concealer in a pinch.

- Brow Powder ($19.50) - Imported from France, these brow powders are finely milled to impart a silky texture and smooth application. Available in 6 shades. I used #6, the darkest shade, because I'm Korean, and my hair is neither black nor brown. It's black-brown. I had been using a typical brow powder that I now realize was much too light for me. This one is the perfect in-between. Not brown, not black, just a serious dark brown. I love applying this with a small angled brush. The finished look is natural and defined.

Wow, I've got to admit, I'm smitten. And I bet you will be too when you try 3CC Specialists.
