Berrisom "Oops~ My Lip Tint Pack" 6 Piece Set Review



Hi, I'm back with another make up product review! Actually, I purchased this Berrisom Lip Tint Pack in January for my birthday so it's a VERY long overdue review! I found this particular 6 piece at my local (and favourite) Asian beauty store, MD Ranking, but you can also purchase it from Amazon here or you can buy them separately at WishTrend here! If you want more information on these Berrisom lip tints then look at that WishTrend link, it's super helpful!

If you don't know what Berrisom lip tint packs are, it is a lip colour that comes in a sticky pack form (kind of like honey), you put it on your lips, wait 10 ~ 15 minutes for it to completely dry and peel off the pack. It leaves a nice tint of colour on your lips that won't transfer and lasts up to 12 hours!





The colours that came in the set were (from left to right) Virgin Red, Vivid Scarlet, Lovely Peach, Pure Pink, Bubble Pink and Sexy Red! 
Currently, Berrisom have a total of 8 lip tint packs from this collection, the ones that I don't own at the moment are Candy Orange and Chic Purple. 


There is 15g of product in each tube which is a decent amount for the price you pay. The product comes out from a really thin angled plastic applicator. I don't particular like this applicator as it doesn't give you a clean edge, if the applicator wasn't rounded off and more on an angle then it might have been better!


THE SWATCHES:

 (Left to right) Virgin Red, Vivid Scarlett, Lovely Peach, Pure Pink, Bubble Pink and Sexy Red



Here I've swatched 'Bubble Pink' on my lips, the pack really adds a nice subtle tint to the lips. I find that 'Virgin Red' and 'Sexy Red' are the most vivid colours out of the ones that I own. The only downside really is that depending on the pigmentation of your lips, the colour will come out slightly uneven as you can see in the above picture! Of course, I think you could go over it again with another layer if you have the patience, I usually add another darker colour in the inner centre of the lips for a gradient effect.  


What I like doing with these lip tint packs is use a darker colour in the inner part of the lips and then go around that with a lighter colour and let them dry at the same time. In the above photo, I've used 'Virgin Red' on the inner part of the lips and 'Pure Pink' on the outer. It doesn't really blend seamlessly using these lip tint packs on it's own, so I would usually try to blend it out a bit using a liquid lip tint (which I didn't do for review purposes).

 
PROS:
Nice range of colours
Doesn't transfer
Has a great long lasting powder
Affordable price
Easy to peel (if it's dried properly)
Your mind is at peace knowing you don't need a touch up every 2 hours lol

CONS:
Messy application (Tip: use a lip brush, but make sure to wash it straight away)
Drying time takes to long (Tip: I watch anime while it dries or do the rest of my makeup)
Is very drying (Tip: make sure to exfoliate prior to using the product and use lip balm after you peel off the product)
Can come out uneven due to natural pigmentation of your own lips
Doesn't blend well for gradient lips (Tip: use a liquid lip tint to blend it)

OVERALL:
I really love these! I would get the 'Chic Purple' colour when I have the time. Most of the cons can be easily avoided by using the tips I have written down. Haha! I would definitely repurchase these when I run out. I recommend this product for people that have the time to wait for it to dry, I'm quite an impatient person but I still manage anyway since I always give myself a good decent amount of time to do my makeup.

To see what 'Chic Purple' looks like, check out Indira's review for swatches and her opinion :D


And yes I have a fringe but I usually sweep it to the side since I cut it really badly and I'm waiting for it to grow. QQ

What are your favourite lip tints??

Fynale Naomi Brown Circle Lens Review from Lens Village

[sponsored]




Just recently I was contacted by LensVillage.com to do a circle lenses review!
If you didn't know by now, LensVillage is a very reputable company that sells a large collection of circle lenses (and even make up)! Being a contact lens user for over 7 years, it's been one of my go-to stores, so getting an email from them made me so excited! Senpai noticed me! hahahaa

I decided to pick up the Fynale Naomi Brown lenses since I've never tried Fynale lenses before. Nothing really attracted me to these lenses because well...all Fynale stock photos are a little intense. Hahaha but I decided to just go for it anyway! The lenses come in prescriptions too and you're able to choose different powers for either eye. Mine were -4.50 and -3.50 because I'm a blind bitch. 

Shipping time was standard, it arrived in less than 2 weeks. It came in a plastic envelope that has bubble wrap lining inside. The contents was inside a plastic bag and the lenses were wrapped up in some foam stuff. Extra extra protection~  





LENS DESCRIPTION:
Life Span: 1 year
Diameter: 14.5mm
Effect: 16 ~ 18mm
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Water Content: 55% (wow!)

Soz about the shit makeup


DESIGN: 
The design is kind of interesting, it has different streaks of brown but there's a lot of clear bits too so the halo effect is super noticeable (as you can see in the above .gif). It's noticeable up close but from a good talking distance (unless you're a creep that talks too close) it gives a nice shiny/watery eye effect. The design would probably also suit people with light coloured eyes as well since it isn't just one block of colour. 

COLOUR:  
Even with dark brown eyes, it shows up pretty well. I mean, I don't usually care about these things anyway since it's brown and my eyes are brown.  

COMFORT: 
With a water content of 55% you can never go wrong with that. I've worn these lenses for 8 hours and I'm not struggling. I'm even wearing them now and I've been staring at the computer screen for a couple of hours and it still feels fine. These actually feel much more comfortable than my normal contact lenses.  

ENLARGEMENT:
These are the standard enlargement for me, I usually like wearing this size. Apparently it gives the effect of 16mm ~ 18mm but I feel like it gives off a 15mm effect at most. That being said, 15mm is still a pretty big enlargement!  

Whoops spelt artificial wrong. My bad.  





OVERALL: 
I love these lenses! I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, I didn't read any reviews or look at other images prior so I could surprise myself (I'm so lame). But yayyyy, I really recommend these! You can buy them here :)  

No filters used. 

Colour is still noticeable even from a phone front camera.



What's the most comfortable lenses that you've tried before?
