I recently won on a live giveaway hosted by Style Korean and Merzy. Merzy is a Korean cosmetic brand while Style Korean is an online shop that retails a lot of skincare and makeup Korean brands.
They sent over 2 shades of their eye shadow, 2 shades of their lipstick in their ME series and 2 shades of their velvet tint season 2. So in total, I got 6 items to play with!
I did a quick swatches and look video using these products and it is up on my Instagram and just scroll at the very end of this post!
MERZY THE FIRST EYE SHADOW
This eye shadow is available in 5 shades and I got the shades E2 Hepburn Rose and E3 Jennifer Brown.
E2 is a light brown shade perfect as a base while E3 is a deep brown. This is a powder eye shadow that swatches beautifully. I didn’t expect E3 to be so pigmented so I was shock when I applied it as a contour on my nose. I love how this doesn’t have any fall outs and really sticks to the lids even without using a primers.
MERZY THE FIRST VELVET TINT SEASON 2
I got the shades V8 Prague Orange and V10 Brussels Rose. As I always want to multi use tints, I used V10 as my blush and it totally works. As a blush, the longer it stayed on my cheeks, the more natural it looked.
These tints has a cola like scent and after taste to it which I like but of course never eat your tint. This tint is really creamy and is easy to apply and glides really well on my lips except for V8. I don’t know why but V8 didn’t apply to well on my lips and settled in my lines. Also, just my preference, I don’t think V8 looks good on me.
What I really love about this tint is how comfortable it is on my lips. It doesn’t leave a tacky feeling however this is not kiss proof.
MERZY THE FIRST LIPSTICK ME SERIES
I got the shades L1 Excuse Me and L3 catch me. I love the packaging of these tints, the caps are magnetic and are in matte.
I have to be straightforward with this and just tell you guys that I super love this! I love the shades, I love how flattering the colors are, I love it glides so well on my lips and I love how it dries semi matte but doesn’t make you lips look dry at all. However! No love is perfect, I love everything about this tint except that it is too creamy that both of them broke. I don’t if it’s the heat here in the Philippines that’s just melting my makeup away or my heavy hands when applying it. I super love this that I still use this even though it is already broken.
Overall this is an awesome makeup line! The pigment is exceptional and their tints are one of the most comfortable tints I have tried, their lipstick is really awesome and their eye shadow is unexpectedly very pigmented.
