Luxurious Lip Oil Balm by 3INA


If there’s one bit of kit in every lady’s makeup bag, and I daresay in a few gentlemen’s pockets as well, it has to be lip balm of some sort. Life in London can be hard on the skin and certainly on the lips, so it was with great interest that SEEN had a look at 3INA’s Lip Oil Balm.

It combines the nourishing properties of a balm with a luscious shine of a lip gloss. The colour is very subtle and imparts a tint. Available in six tints: Lemon (yellow); Orange (orange); Strawberry (pink); Plum dark red/purple): Banana (green); and Raspberry (red).

3INA Lip Oil Balm 101 £7.95 Strawberry 3INA Lip Oil Balm 102 £7.95 Raspberry 3INA Lip Oil Balm 104 £7.95 Lemon 3INA Lip Oil Balm 105 £7.95 Banana 3INA Orange Lip Oil Balm 103 £7.95 3INA Plum Lip Oil Balm 100 £7.95

Rich with Moroccan Argan oil, Shea butter, sweet almond oil, Jojoba oil, Avocado oil and Olive oil, the Lip Oil Balm is well-named and gives lasting moisture. It’s also good for use as a glossy top coat for your usual lipstick. 3INA’s mission is to give customers luxury products – but not at luxury prices. The Lip Oil Balm is only £7.95. All 3INA’s products are paraben and cruelty free and not tested on animals.

A visit to their Covent Garden shop will be good for your pocket and your appearance. The layout is light, clean and all the shades of lipstick and eyeshadow are laid out in such a way that finding what you want is a real pleasure.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
