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.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
