Decorative cosmetics that work like transferable tattoos - with different, however, tasks and results - became another brilliant gift that came to us from the Korean market. The main attraction is that after application the contents of the can freeze with a film, and the ability to remove it with one movement of the hand fits into the concept of almost any product. Different manufacturers use this idea in a lot of ways: these are classic tints that leave permanent pigment, and eyeliners that can be easily removed without the participation of makeup removers. We will tell you why we need such cosmetics and where to look for it.
How it started
If you have not tried Korean tints (for example, the legendary Berrisom), you probably saw them on Instagram: a bright liquid from a tube is applied to the lips, after which the frozen film is removed, and a very persistent pigment remains on the surface, which is not afraid of rain, snow and the sixth a cup of coffee. Their unequivocal popularity has generated a demand for products for other parts of the body; many Korean brands later released similar eyebrow products. The advantage of film tints is obvious: they are able to create the effect of truly "invisible" makeup.
Such products do not necessarily work for permanent staining. Another hit that excited bloggers was the NOT4YOU brand Real Skin Patch primer: it hardens on the face with almost a “second skin”, which creates a very smooth surface that provides perfect application and adhesion, and when you get bored, it just comes off. Feel like Patrick Bateman, as they like to joke in reviews of similar products. Such a texture has long been tested in care products - it works great in the case of cleansing masks: the cessation of action is evidenced by the solidification of the film, which at the end of the ritual must be removed with a couple of movements (along with all dead skin particles), and not washed off for a long time and painfully.
Another promising application for "make-up films" is in the eyeliner category. Due to the very dense texture, the liner will have a rich color, and it is not physically capable of smearing - except perhaps to roll.
Why do we need it
It is difficult to imagine a complete make-up with only tints-films - it looks without five minutes as a home version of SFX make-up, which cannot be called really comfortable. But the use of such funds where it is convenient for you can make life much easier. Those who regularly tint their eyebrows, but are not going to run in line for tattooing, should look for eyebrow tints in the treasures of the Asian market: some of them last for several days, or even a week.
Those looking for an unobtrusive lipstick that will not go away after a kiss or burger will be pleased to use tints outside of the "water" format. And for fans of shooters, especially those suffering from the fact that even the best liners are imprinted on the century, we recommend trying the Korean and American novelties - perhaps it will change your life. We warn you that getting used to these products is not very easy, since they also require precise and symmetrical application, but you are guaranteed to get one or two makeup details that will not require any corrections during the day. Some brands, by the way, even offer stencils for drawing a clear shape in the kit.
How to do it
New bomb - Too Faced glitter eyeliner (just see how the masters from Sephora treat it). In the traditional black color, in the same Sephora, you can find the "tear-off" Blinc eyeliner. Lip film tints can now be found not only in Korean brands, but also in Caylin, which is quite widely represented in Russia. There are similar products in the segment for gourmands - for example, the Sally Hansen Big Peel Off Base Coat, which can obediently adhere to the nails along with a layer of colored varnish, but can be easily and quickly removed if you just pry it off with tweezers. The most famous eyebrow tint remains an inexpensive and very, very stable Etude House Tint My Brows Gel, and in the nearest "Girlfriends" you can already find an analogue of the more familiar mass market brand Maybelline Brow Tattoo Gel Tint.
