Merzy: The First Velvet Tints Review + Swatches


I've reviewed so much skincare lately so let's do a makeup review for today. I will be reviewing the Merzy The First Velvet Tints. I got all of the six shades and I will also be doing swatches for you, loves!

Merzy is a Korean brand. This is the first time that I will be trying a product from them. I was amazed by how this tints worked. I feel like it deserves more attention or recognition just like the other brands. If you want to know why, then just keep reading! ;)

Product Description

★ Deep and strong cocktail color to increase your confidence

★ Fluffy velvet texture that gently fixes to your lip once applied

★ Strong and long lasting won't even fade after having a meal or coffee

★ No dryness, no wrinkles, no dead skin occurring

PACKAGING


This product comes with a black box with white details on it. It is simple and straightforward. The product description on the box is written in Korean.



On one side of the box, it has their corresponding shades and their names.


Same with the other side, but this time it has a genuine product label of Merzy which can be verified through Hidden Tag.


I noticed that Merzy is more on black and simple packaging yet it looks stylish and sophisticated. The color of the Merzy label corresponds to the shade of the product which is nice and convinient.



Same with the box, the tube also has the shade names and colors at the bottom.

APPLICATION


It comes with a doe foot applicator. It has a very minimal scent.

SWATCHES


V1 Bloody Mary - Ripe Tomato Red (RED)

V2 Jack Rose - Unripe Apple MLBB (PINK)

V3 Cassis Orange - Fresh and Frizzy Orange Soda (CORAL)

V4 Shirley Temple - Ruby Pomegranate (RED)

V5 Peach Crush - Sweet and Fresh Peach Pink (CORAL)

V6 Firenzi Negroni - Brick-colored wine (RED)

Three shades are almost alike, just different level of pink, coral, and red.


Some of the shades are almost the same when applied on the lips. I'm not sure if you can notice it. Firenzi Negroni has a deeper red tone than Bloody Mary. I did not put Shirley Temple on full like the other swatches that is why it almost looks the same with Peach Crush but it is more on the red in reality and when applied on full lips. I only put a small amount and blend it with my finger.

VERDICT

True to its claims, the pigmentation and color pay off of these tints are on the next level. I only used one layer with the swatches. It's not drying on the lips. All of its product claims are mostly true. It has a Peripera-like texture but it is more pigmented. What really amazed me is the longevity of the tints. To be honest, I had a hard time swatching them because it is so hard to remove (even with the Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm!) It really stains and stays on the lips for hours. I swatched three tints in a day (different time) so the colors won't overlap or mix with each other. One time, I wore this at around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. I did not eat anything for dinner. I checked it at around 10 o'clock in the evening and it is still there. Just minimal fading. It was for sure still on even when I slept. Haha! However, it fades after eating especially with oily foods.

Firenzi Negroni is my favorite shade and my typical kind of (wine) red. These tints deserve more recognition! I'm not sure if the price is a disadvantage because it is a high-quality tint. It might be pricey to others but this worth it.
