[Review] Berrisom OOPS! My lip tint pack SET (6 shades) - UPDATED 2016

This post has been updated as of March 18th, 2016. 

or the longest time, I was dead from asian beauty/makeup/cosmetics news. Basically, I was completely disconnected from ANYTHING.
I was a caveman.

But even within the underdepths of my caveman rock, I HEARD ABOUT THIS!!! The hype about the Berrisom lip tint packs were unreal. So many of my friends came back from Korea this summer raving about them.

"LIP TATTOO! PEEL OFF YOUR LIPS!!!" and interesting, all-caps statements like that. 

So many people were talking about this. Youtubers, GetItBeauty and my friends.

stare at this rainbow forever

The set was provided to me for review by 
For those of you who don't know, this is the same store as the previous "". They just rebranded.
They're known for their insanely low product prices. The shipping pretty much evens it out, but I'd recommend stopping by their store and checking if they have the stuff you need.

Description and Packaging 

Yeah, you might be asking, "what is this??????"
The OOPS! My Lip Tint packs are basically a "lip tattoo". Each colour comes in a 15g tube.

1. You apply the product directly on your lips. 
2. Wait 10 minutes. 
3. Peel it off.
4. You now have a tinted lip that will last FOREVER. 
(i.e., 12 hours.)

"Apply, dry, peel, done!"
There are currently a total of 9 colours.
The set comes with 6. 

The OOPS! My Lip Tint Pack (OMLTP) has gotten so popular.
Berrisom (the company) actually patented the product. 
Meaning: Berrisom is the only company to produce this product. 
Meaning #2: Don't make unauthorized copies of this product. Or u go 2 jail. 

This product was featured in multiple magazines, the #1 bestseller in stores (Eg. Olive Young, and NS Home Shopping) and recommended by Korean star celebrity makeup artists.

Clinical tests were apparently run, and the results:

1. Lasts for 12 hours 
2. Exfoliating - improved keratin 
3. Moisturizing - raised moisture levels for lips


Just to let you know, the lip packs are sold separately as well. However, it's usually a better deal to buy the set (if you want more than 1, etc.)

(From left to right)

#1 - Virgin Red
#2 - Vivid Scarlet
#3 - Lovely Peach
#4 - Pure Pink
#5 - Bubble Pink
#6 - Sexy Red

From what I've heard and seen in numerous different shops, "sexy red" is one of the most popular colours.

Swatches and tips (for application)

It took forever swatching these (lip swatches) because I literally needed 1 day at a time to use 1 colour!
When they call it a "lip tattoo", they really mean lip tattoo. The colour will not budge without some next level power.

Okay, so it was really difficult applying these. Especially the first time, with the first colour "Virgin red". It feels a little tingly when you put it on. I have no idea why.

And no (if you have relatively smooth lips), it doesn't hurt peeling the tint off. 

(From left to right)

#1 - Virgin Red
#2 - Vivid Scarlet
#3 - Lovely Peach
#4 - Pure Pink
#5 - Bubble Pink
#6 - Sexy Red

LP (Lovely Peach) makes me look sickly... Definitely recommended to use a lip balm regularly - LOOK AT "LP", "PP" and "BP"!!!!! DISGUSTING, I SAY.
(My lips, not the colour.)
I look drier than the dead skin of a shedding rattlesnake

My top 3 tips for a smooth application?

1. Have smooth lips (Don't be chapped. Really.)
2. Do not overuse! (Put on a thin layer. Not too thin that you can't peel it off properly, but not too much. If you overuse, i'lll lengthen the dry-time by FOREVER.)
3. Use it directly from the applicator. (No, don't use a Q-tip. The threads of the Q-tip will...make it...messier. I tried... sob.)

Natural lip colour
First time attempting the lip pack... omfg... it looks so messy!!!!!!!

After 10 minutes... tada! Clearly messy on the bottom... and top... but yeah.
Peeled off from the lips

My thoughts?

If you like bright lips with an insane staying power, you really need to try these! Definitely. Each tube  has 15g of product.
Some stores claim that a tube lasts for "20 applications", but... nah... to be honest, I'd be surprised if it got 10.

I really enjoyed trying out the Berrisom lip packs, and will repurchase the colour "pure pink" and "sexy red". 
Personally, I liked the colours a lot more after they had slightly faded, leaving a soft, pretty tint.

Sexy red!!!!!!!~ ohlala

My biggest tip?
Seriously ----- if you get your hands on 1 (or more), and want to wear it in public... try it the night before at home, first. 
These aren't like usual liptints/sticks.

"Oh, ewwwww, I don't like the colour on me"
-wipe wipe-

It doesn't work that like here, girl!!!!!!

If you put it on (assuming you did it correctly), the colour will legit LAST. Trust me on that. The worst thing is to YOLO-put-on-a-random-colour before work.

I put on the "Vivid Scarlet" before my NEW JOB, ok? LOOOOOOOOL. 
I'm sorry, but LOL.
Orange-red does not look good on me. No matter what I do. I can't. Not even. No. 
I was so embarrassed for the rest of the day, I just walked around like this.

Price comparison: - $25.26 USD - $32 USD (BB cosmetic) - $30

(If used correctly: smooth lips beforehand, proper application, no overuse, etc.)

- Insane lasting power (12 hours)
- Vivid colours
- Exfoliates lips
- Moisturizes lips
- Easy to wear (no transfer, no replication)  *UPDATED
- Weightless, doesn't feel like you have anything on (obviously)
- 9 different shades to choose from (If purchased individually)

- Difficult to apply at first (but you'll get used to it!)
- Not recommended for "quick make up" routines
- Takes forever to dry
- If you mess up, you mess up. FOR A LONG TIME. (Hard to erase completely off)
- Weird scent for some of the colours ("Vivid Scarlet" smelt like blood...)


Hi, this is March 18th 2016 June speaking.
I originally gave this product a 5/5, but with a warning that the product needs to be used "properly". (You need moisturized lips, no chappiness, etc.) I gave it a 5/5 because it met all the promises it had, like lasting long, moisturizing lips (it didn't dry me out), and vivid colours.

But that was, TBH, way too high of a rating.

I'm giving it a solid 3/5 now. Maybe 2/5. 
I don't usually update my reviews, I'm consistent with what I like, and what I don't like. What I think is good, what I think is not good.

But man.
I used it again a couple times (usually when I'm bored, never "serious" makeup application... which says a lot), and it's just not 5/5 material.
It's hard to use and it's not practical. The lasting power is, obviously as a "lip tattoo", awesome. But if you mess up, you really mess up. It's not worth it.
If I had an important date, meeting, a day when my makeup had to be on point... hell, I would stay away from this.

Knowing how clumsy I am, using this product on an important day... it'll mess up my life LOL. It's a cute and quirky product though. Great for some days, and some situations.
BAD for others.


A bunch of shitty quality selfies cause why not lol

What about you?
Have you tried these lip tints? What'd you think about it? Which colour is your favourite?

[Review] "Beauteque" BB bag! - August 2015

Hello guys, I'm back with a review - this time, it's on a company called "Beauteque" and it's "BB bags". 

I've said it before on my blog, but subscription boxes aren't really my "thing". A lot of my friends do, they love that stuff.

But uhm... $20 for a box can get me lunch/dinner/lots of Pocky. So going into this review, know that I have super high expectations HAHAA. I want to see value, I say!

Beauteque sent me a BB bag, and I'm here to give you all the details. 

I use "bag" and "box" interchangeably. Excuse meh. 

What's a "BB Bag"?

It's a monthly subscription service that gives "at least 6 full sized luxury products". These can include skincare, makeup... and even jewelry!

Each BB bag has approximately $65-85 worth of products! You get a lot more than what you pay for.

There are a lot of different subscription options. Each of the options are prepaid.
- Month to month option, you're gonna be billed on the 15th.
- Subscribe after the 5th? You're going to get the next month's bag.
(If you subscribe on June 6th, you're not going to get the June BB bag. You'll get the July one.)

Easy peasy.

Can I choose what's in my BB bag?

You have some options.
On the 15th of every month, they will send you an email survey. Fill it out and you can have some option-power over your bag.
- Options: lotion scent, lipstick colour, perfume "flavour", etc.
- If you don't fill it out within the deadline, Beauteque will choose for you.


- Month to month = $24/month
- 3 Months = $24/Month
- 6 Months = $24/Month
- 12 Months = $22/Month
Shipping charges apply. 
Yo... I wrote "Month" so many times... it's starting to look weird to me. Does that happen to you too? I'm legitimately tripping out here.

Tip: Use coupon "JUNNIKU10" to get discount to get an additional gift in the bag!


Bags get shipped on the end of the 2nd week (of each month).
- Beauteque ships to: USA, Canada, Europe, Australia


August 2015 BB bag

Behind the mint "bow" bag is another bag service that Beauteque offers: review coming soon!

This is such a pretty bag. Ugh. I would have loved it so much.
Unfortunately, they had put the info card on top of the bag, and in transit... I guess it imprinted onto it.

IT'S SO SAD. :( 
Still gonna use it, doe. 

Not sure how any of the products here can be appropriately themed as "treasure" or anything nautical, or "under the sea" or even pirate...
But yeah!
I like the theme concept LOL... pretty cute. 

The information card gives you a brief about each of the items in the bag, and how to use. AWESOME.
They also give you a "value" for each item, so you know the approximate cost of the bag. 

= $71

Additional pictures 

-Han Aka V-Line chin patch 
-Botanical Choice "shiny and hydrating hair mask"
-Purederm "Clean & fresh apple peeling gel"

The Han aka V-line patch is actually curious... very curious. I heard from another person that they actually work, even though its for a limited time. WANT TO TRY. 
Purederm stuff... it's ok. I already tried the peeling gel, it's fine. The hair mask is an automatic give-away to Mr. Junniku. I hate using hair products other than shamp+condi. 

The SAEM "Cover perfection TIP concealer" 

I lost my two (2!!!!!!!) MUFE concealers, and... yo girl don't have enough $$ to buy another one. Ok? So I was concealer-less.
BUT THANK THE HEAVENS THIS WAS IN THE BAG. It's so good, so creamy... so... YES. It's an awesome concealer, and thankfully matches my colour. Will be buying a separate one of these in the future! YES. 
I had no idea this concealer was so popular, but whaaaaoow. Thank you for including this in the BB bag, Beauteque!!!!!!

Holika Holika "Wonder drawing" no smudge liquid eyeliner 

I can't use eyeliners like this to save my life. But I'm actually really glad I got this, I needed a black liquid eyeliner anyways. Will be practising my eyeliner with this!!! YAAASSSS. YOUR GIRL GONNA HAVE SOME MAD EYELINER DONE. 

Mizon all in one snail repair cream (tube)

The famous Mizon snail cream - in a smaller tube format! I reviewed the cream already on my blog here, but I like this format better. Tubes are better than tubs!!!!!!! FOREVER.

Opalis "Best wish" facial oil blotting paper

Oil blotting sheets; comes in super sturdy packaging and it's really nice to use. Same quality as the Sephora collection papers, which... are like... $12? Or something. YAAASS.


If I were have to paid $24 for this box, I think it would be okay. 
I wouldn't be disappointed. 
I'd be pretty happy with my box right here. Happy enough to buy it again.

However, I have to say that the number of masks in this box disappointed me a bit - if I had paid for this box, I would have hoped for other products, preferably not masks. 
If I had wanted so many masks, I had probably gone with their "mask maven" subscription. 

When you see their "at least full sized luxury products!" I don't really think of masks as "full sized"... is it just me?

According to Beauteque, this box is worth $71.25.
The products' listed value is obviously overvalued at times (ahem, the Mizon snail repair cream), but still. Either way...
For $24, it's a pretty fair deal. Sweet.

The fact that they include popular products (Mizon snail cream, the Saem concealer) and a bunch of versatile products (eyeliner, everyone can use another black liquid liner)... 
for me, it's enough to overlook the previously mentioned cons. 

Pros (Why you should subscribe)
- Premium, good quality products
- Comes with at least 6 products 
- Always will be more than $24 retail value; you always get more 
- No 2 BB bags will be the same (month to month)
- Offers options for each bag
- Multiple subscription options (month to month, 3 months, 6 months, etc.)
- Fast customer service
- Company has transparency (they tell you exactly when to expect certain things; emails, surveys, shipping dates, etc.)
- Ships to multiple areas, not limited to North America

- Some products overvalued; so the box may be overvalued (still worth over $24, though)
- Too many masks in this bag (in particular)

Would I buy a BB bag? 

It's $24 for a bag - and you get enough items to make up for the cost! Because they include a lot of Korean products (which I always appreciate), I like it. 
Subscription boxes are a risk, but sometimes you gotta take a risk. How else will you find your next HG? 
Maybe it's in the next BB bag. ;) HEHEHE.

I know that personally, I'll be picking up the "The Saem" concealer. I tried it out thanks to Beauteque, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. 
Please try it!!! 

There's always going to be that ONE product I don't like in a box, but... I mean, I have friends. They can have it, hahahahaha. 

What about you?
Have you heard of Beauteque? Do you subscribe to any bags/boxes already? Do you like them?
