Hope you are all doing well. I just turned in my bachelor thesis and it seems like I'm done with university oO Strange feeling...
Today I have a review of a lip tint for you (that could turn out to be a little bit emotional/rant)
Water Dispersion System
You can tint lips with cool and moist feeling, once you
apply Holy Berry Tint that contains plenty of water.
Sweet & Sour Berry Tint
Watery colors make bouncy and blooming lips.
Berry Complex maintains healthy and moist lips

It's a water based tint so the consistency is like water.
It smells like strawberry - very sweet but a tiny bit artificial. It tastes rather bitter though, that's not that nice..
Now here comes the rant. The bottle itself is made out of plastic but quite nice since it's see through. BUT!! It's leaking!! Why in God's name would you make a bottle that leaks? I took it with me once an got a stain on my makeup pouch. Not cool... I also read on other blogs that other people experienced the same so this seems to be a common problem...
Swatch on my hand
With lip stain applied
The color is very nice but natural. It dries up pretty fast and I like that you can apply a lip balm on top once it's dried without losing too much color. Sadly it only lasts for about 2-3 hours, even less when you're eating and drinking. And since you can't bring it with you (the leaking -.- ) it's really inconvenient. Really sad, because I am quite fond of the color and texture.
Pros: sweet smell, natural color, water based, cheap
Cons: not very long lasting, packaging is leaking
