Review: 3coins Store Petit Price Cosmetics Mascara and Eyeshadow

The 3 coins store has recently launched a petit price cosmetics range.
They include items like eyeshadow, mascara, nail polish etc
3coin-1
Each item is 315yen [Approx USD$5]

I know many of you like to see reviews of cheap makeup in Japan so i picked up the following two items to try!
3coin-5

The eyeshadow palette [003 palette]
3coin-6

Inside
3coin-7
The packaging is similar to many brands [MUJI comes to mind] and is sturdy. There is a mirror where the applicator is kept [nice touch]

Here is the mascara [comes in black or brown, i picked the brown one]
3coin-9

Typical mascara wand
3coin-10

Its extremely small so if you are looking for something to carry on the go, this isnt too bad.
3coin-12
Next to a MAC lipstick for size comparison

Swatches
3coin-14

Overall Thoughts
I really like the combination of colors of the eyeshadows and the packaging is really sleek.
The mirror is a really nice touch though the brush is rubbish.
However there is quite a bit of fallout so i recommend you use it with a primer. [like UDPP or TFSI etc]
I would buy again if there were other color combinations released that i like.
The mascara is ordinary and seems to have very little product in it. Definetely wont get that again XD
3coin-13

Here are pics of other items sold
3coin-2

More items sold
3coin-3

For those unfamiliar with the 3Coins store, it is a store where everything is 315yen [USD$5~]

In other news, i am back from my trip to Taipei! [not a long trip, just 5 days]
Sadly for me, i must have caught something on the flight back as i started to get a bad sore throat etc on the way home.
Hopefully it clears up asap!

Hope YOU are doing well!
XOXO Yumeko

    Thanks for the review! Glad to know that ‘cheap’ make up can be as good as regular priced stuff as well. Incidentally, have you read that article by an ex-insider that all makeup stores buy their products from the same couple of suppliers but simply brand them differently?

    Good to know you had a good time in Taiwan – did you OD on bubble tea? haha.

    In the mean time, take care and get well soon!

    Thank you for the review. I didn’t know about this store when I was in Japan. Another thing to put on my new to do list for when (if) I go back to Japan. I’m hoping that we will sooner than later.

    Sorry to hear that you caught something on the trip back home. Hope you get over it quickly.

    • Bittenbefore says:

      i am sure u will be back soon!
      i am almost over it! fingers crossed it doesnt get worse at work hahaha

    Wow 315! Great price :) Thanks for the review; looks as though the eye shadows aren’t a bad deal. It would be convenient to take with you to weekend getaways since it’s nice and compact and has several colours ^^
    Welcome back and I hope you feel better soon! Keep bundled up!

    I loooooove the 3coin shop! Half of the stuff in my apartment comes from there! But I don’t think I’m interested in their make up. Since it’s all so small I thought it might be good to squeeze in a tiny handbag for a night out. But it looks like it’s not worth it…

    i’ve never tried a brown mascara but the eyeshadow shades looks gorgeous!

    Never been to 3 coins, but it sounds interesting! In Australia, Daiso is $2.80 which is at least 4 coins :)

    • Bittenbefore says:

      when i first heard abt it, i thought AUD$2.80 was pricey but i realised their locations in australia [melb anyway] is really expensive! so thats probably part of it
