How A-Peeling! Berrisome 'Oops! My Lip Tint Pack' Review

06:58:00
If you frequent Instagram like most of us beauty-addicts, you've probably seen this bizarre lip stain come across your feed at least once. Put simply, it's very cool, and a little bit gross. I managed to stumble upon it at Marshall's for $7.99 and figured I'd give it a whirl.


The Product




The Berrisome 'Oops! My Lip Tint Pack' is a thick lip-gloss/mask hybrid. The instructions say to apply along the lip line and let it set for about 5-10 minutes to dry. Afterwards, the product will peel off like snakeskin, to reveal a 'sweet and kissable colour'. How adorable.

My initial concerns were:
“Do I want to wear this colour for more than one day?”
“What if the colour is hideous?”
“What if I stain outside of my lip line and give myself a clown mouth?”
What if it won't peel off?!?!”
But the packaging was so obnoxiously cute and pink, I had to put my worries aside. But I did keep my concealer close, just in case...

I got the shade 'Pure Pink', in case that wasn't completely obvious. There are 6 shades in total, most of which I was able to find through a quick Amazon search.

The Application

The fact that the little cartoon lips exclaim 'oops!' was a slight cause for concern, I won't lie. So to be extra cautious, I applied it to my hand first. And I'm glad it did, because as soon as I opened the lid, the product came pouring out. This indicated to me that a lip brush would be mandatory later on.
The consistency was thick like corn syrup, but not runny. It is also the brightest, most neon pink lip product I've ever laid eyes on. I was excited and hopeful that the stain would be just as vivid.

You can tell I wasn`t too eager to put this on my lips. What a mess...
I let it sit for about 20 minutes or so (To be honest, I lost track of time). Because the application wasn't completely even, some spots weren't completely dry, so it didn't peel off as seamlessly as I had anticipated. It was very easy to wash off the still-goopy lip product from my hand. That said, the stain underneath was quite bright and pigmented! But truly how well would this stain last?

Freshly peeled!
I immediately took my trusty Clinique cleansing brush and some makeup removing cleanser and gave it a good scrub. To my surprise, it hardly budged!  Even after a full day, the colour faded minimally. Now was time for the ultimate test; the lips.
The swatch in all it`s glory, 2 days later. 
As mentioned before, I used a lip brush to ensure I had a clean application. I was also careful to make sure the consistency was even across the lips, so that I wouldn't have any wet patches when it came time to grip & rip.
Bare-lips. You can`t tell but I`m terrified of the pending goopy mess that will soon be on my face...
The drying time was a bit of a struggle. Do you keep your lips parted and drool all over yourself and everything you own? Or do you keep em' closed and risk never being able to speak again?
This wound up with me getting the product on my teeth. I wipe it off immediately so as to not give myself a new cotton-candy smile (In case you were wondering, it does NOT taste good).
I left it on a total of 15 minutes.

Wet (lip) paint
The peeling process was quite smooth, albeit very weird. I was very concerned I'd take my skin with it by accident, as I'm very prone to dry and chapped lips. Both top and bottom came off in one piece, without any damage! I took a damp cloth to my lips after to remove any excess I may have missed, and thankfully the stain was not impacted by this.


The Result
As previously noted, the pigment was just as bright as when I swatched it on my hand. I nice cherry pink shade! My lips didn't feel especially moisturised, but they weren't parched either. After a few hours my lips did feel a bit dry, but it was nothing a little balm couldn't help.

Stained!
I will confess, I cheated a little bit and removed it early. All it took was a little coconut oil & my favourite Lush lip scrub to remove most of the pigment. However, I did note a little colour stayed in the fine lines of my lips.

Overall, I'm quite happy with this product! It doesn't transfer at all, no matter if you're kissing or chowing down on dinner. I would definitely recommend this product, and I'm even considering picking up the other shades!

Have you tried this product? Did it work well for you? What shade did you end up with? Let me know in the comments! I'd love to hear what you think, and for us to discuss further!
