This title is a lyric from one of my favorite songs from Old Dominion and applies to this review as well. Ok, maybe “rip” is a little aggressive for this lip gloss as it isn’t actually supposed to be “torn” off but it is very interesting to say the least. I found this product on Facebook, watched the video as it is very intriguing. The concept is a lip gloss that sets on the lips for up to ten minutes and then turns into a rubbery feel on the skin. At this point, you gently tug on the end and peel it off slowly, leaving behind a subtler (but still vivid) stain of the ultra-bright gloss you originally applied. The end result lasts for hours, which is amazing. You can either wear alone or top with a white gloss to make it shiny or a balm to make it dewy. Sounds good, right? Here is what I thought:
I applied Berrisom’s Oops My Lip tint in pink generously to both upper and lower lips, making sure not to miss any spots. After about five minutes you can feel the gloss start to turn to a rubbery consistency and you know it’s ready to be removed. I peeled off the gloss, which reminded me a lot of glue being removed from your hand when you were a kid (which was fun to be honest). The color left behind was more intense than I would normally wear but I still liked it. Best of all, it last hours. I topped it with my Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in clear because I like a little dewy shine on my lips and this combo was perfect.
The downside was that when I ordered it from Amazon it took over a month to get to me. I know it’s coming from Korea but come on – over a month for a ten dollar item? I would be interested in trying more colors because of the longevity you get from the color after applying but I like my beauty products readily available to me and prefer not to wait more than a few days to get them. If you don’t mind waiting the time (and perhaps that increases your anticipation) then I would recommend this.
What do you think of this lip gloss trend?

I love the idea of this trend and I’ve so many people try it. Some love it, some hate it. But I’ve only seen it in pinkish shades and they don’t suit my complexion at all! xx
This trend is great for busy people but there must be so many chemicals in it to make it stain your lips! Kind of worrisome!
