3CE Mood Recipe Matte Lip Color 116 Inked Heart was purchased by Cosmeperks.
I’ve been so intrigued with their Mood Recipe collection since they launched it for the first time. The most known product from the collection is the lipsticks and they are all so popular it’s hard to find a local seller who has it on stock.
It is expected though because the collection is in full n*des and natural shades. Who doesn’t love neutral shades? 3CE definitely knows which shades will get popular among beauty enthusiasts by making full line of neutrals but later they made another collection called Red Recipe. They have full lines of lipsticks, nail lacquers, eyeshadow palettes, single shadows, hand mirrors and blushers but I think the Mood Recipe is getting more popularity in the beauty industry.
I have good experience with 3CE lip products before so I have really high expectation with this one as well. Based on the review videos that I watched before, they dubbed the Mood Recipe Lipstick as the best lipstick 3CE has ever made so that just makes me more excited.

3CE Mood Recipe Matte Lip Color 116 Inked Heart Review:
From the Mood Recipe collection, they have 5 original neutral shades but added 5 more shades, including both lighter and darker shades. I was torn between shade 220 Hit Me Up and 116 Inked Heart but at the end I ended up choosing the shade 116.
They described shade 116 Inked Heart as a peach-brown lipstick tone and I can say the actual shade is true to the description. It has brown color with a peachy undertone. This shade will look really good on people with warm undertone and I think it will suit every skin tone, from light to deep.
On fair skin, the shade will look more like an orange-brown shade, on medium skin tone it’ll look exactly like a peachy-brown shade and for deep skin tone, it’ll be a perfect MLBB nude lip color.
As expected from 3CE, the packaging itself is really sleek and feels luxurious. It is made from a matte plastic material and has the exact color with the actual shade. The box also has a hologram sticker as an indicator if the product is real or fake.
The size is pretty regular for a lipstick but I love it how it doesn’t take much space on my vanity. Because it has a little bit weight, it feels really sturdy. This lipstick was thrown into my front yard by the delivery man but I’m surprised it didn’t break at all! I can say it’s very safe to bring it for travelling as it will stay in perfect condition because of its sturdiness.
I know it has a matte finish but when I saw the bullet, I just realized how matte this lipstick will be. I didn’t see any sheen or shine at all from the bullet unless I put it under the lights and it doesn’t have any smell so I think it could be a plus point for people who hates scented product.
The bullet has a very pointy tip so it’s easy to apply especially on my cupid’s bow since I don’t have a precise line around my lips.
Because of its matte finish, it feels a little bit hard to apply the lipstick for the first time. It’s so matte it even tugs my lips. It feels very dry but after I swipe it across my lips for a few times, I guess it’s start to melt and become more creamy. It sets immediately, the color doesn’t bleed and make a mess outside my lip line which is the thing I love the most from this lipstick.
It feels really comfortable on the lips. Even though it’s matte, it doesn’t feel dry at all. It doesn’t emphasis my dry parts and doesn’t sink into my lip’s fine lines. It feels a little bit sticky for a few minutes but I don’t mind at all because I can still tolerate the stickiness.
I have to say it’s not the most long-lasting lipstick I’ve ever tried. It’s gone after I drink and eat something oily but it’s faded beautifully, not patchy or blotchy at all. Even after I re-apply it, my lips still feel comfortable and not dry at all.
I really love this lipstick! It’s become a staple lip product on my list and I think I’ll get another shade, maybe a lighter one to see if it has a different texture but so far, this lipstick gets a full 5 star from me. I really recommend it for everyone!
