Hi everyone! There's only a day left to join my international giveaway. It's totally easy to join so be sure to enter and get the chance to win a Japanese Bubble Hair Dye called Palty Foam Hair Dye in the shade Milk Tea Brown!
Moving on to the real post, I am here to share with you one of my most favorite makeup items ever. It's the perfect everyday lip color for me. The photos were taken a while back when I got this as a present for my birthday last year but I only got the chance to review it now. Do note that this is the old packaging and as you go through this post, I will also be sharing its new packaging so you don't miss it out in stores. The product is called Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint from the Korean brand, Tony Moly. Why magic, you say? Read on and find out! ;)
The product comes in a sturdy plastic packaging that's just a little bit bigger than a 5 peso coin. It's very handy and fits into my makeup bag very well. Contrary to most Korean brand packaging, its appearance is quite simple. There are no printed designs, no artwork embossed nor drawn. The shape isn't anything special either. However, I don't mind this because it definitely delivers more than it presents.
Manufacturing date is written at the back! :)
I got this in the shade #1 Strawberry. I swatched all three colors (before) and initially, I thought this was the lightest of the three. This is the very reason why I didn't get this for myself. I got the Green Apple one (which I haven't opened yet) for myself. Thankfully, a good friend of mine (Thanks Dana!) decided to give this to me as a present. It turns out, this particular shade comes out brighter on me than the other two.
As you can see, the product itself is clear. It just looks like a regular lip gloss in this small container. This is where the term 'magic' comes in. When you first swatch the product, it delivers a very light pink shade that reacts to your skin chemistry. A few more seconds later, it transforms into a brighter shade of pink that looks really complimentary to my medium light skin tone.
This has been a staple in my makeup bag for months and months and I remember being fond of using it as an everyday work lip color. I got a lot of compliments whenever I wear it and the best thing about it is that it's super easy to use.
I used to work as a nurse and everything seems fast paced and activities happen one after another that it's really hard to maintain and retouch your makeup within the day. This particular product, on the other hand, makes it easy to do so because I can easily reapply this even without the use of a mirror.
Even though I don't use it as often as I first tried it, this still remains as one of my most reached out product especially when I can't decide on what lip color to sport. My sister also particularly likes to 'borrow' this because of its versatility and outstanding performance.
I would highly recommend this product to any girl out there! Just know that this is already marketed as the "Tony Moly Berry Delight Magic Lip Tint" and it has four different shades. According to some other bloggers, the Strawberry (clear) and Green Apple (green) still has the same shade but the other two are new ones.
Make sure to get one when you drop by a Tony Moly Philippines counter/ boutique near you! Also, let me know about the two new shades as I don't have them in my collection (yet).
