Good morning and thank GOODNESS it’s Friday!!! I’ll toast with my cup of coffee to THAT!!
So earlier this week, I picked up a new lip product that really intrigued me:
This lip tint is light-weight, watery, and comes in a sturdy (I’ve dropped it on a tile floor already haha) glass bottle with a twist-off cap and doe-foot applicator:
They only had two shades available at Watson’s – this Cherry color and another pink one – but maybe there are more varieties available online.
EDIT: Yes! There are more varieties available. And just a note – Urban Outfitters sells these on their website!
Now, you guys, this is actually my first red lip product, haha! I swatched it on my hand in store though, and it didn’t seem too in-your-face, so I gave it a go!
Here are my before-and-after pictures:
So this is just one layer, pretty much – it can be a bit tricky to apply since it’s so watery in consistency, but you just have to use a light touch and try to cover your lips evenly, or the color might end up stronger/lighter in some parts than others! It soaks in pretty quickly, but there’s also enough time to wipe any mistakes off before it sets completely!
It’s very buildable and you can definitely get a bright, bright red using this stuff. I just went for one or two layers. Here’s my FOTD with it:
So even after it soaks in, it does take several minutes to actually stain your lips – so be careful about wiping your lips on anything for the next 10 minutes after you apply! But once it sets, the color doesn’t seem to transfer on anything you drink/eat. I will say that if you apply chapstick over it (which I did) a tiny bit might come off, but if I’m gentle with the chapstick, it’s fine.
Also, the color might collect a little in dry patches, so I’d recommend using this on exfoliated and moisturized lips for a flawless application.
This doesn’t have much of a scent, but it does kind of smell fruity if I really sniff it.
As far as wear goes, this is okay. I wouldn’t say that it looks exactly the same at the end of my day – it does wear off a bit over time, but it stains your lips well enough that you can still tell you have lip color on by the end of the day. It’s not as bright/vibrant as it is just after application, but it’s still there.
All in all, I like it a lot! Especially because I’m not afraid of it transferring when I eat/drink/kiss! My regular lipstick/tinted chapstick/lipgloss transfers so bad on my coffee mugs, my boyfriend, everything, so this is a game-changer for me! I think I’ll be picking up the pink shade I saw at Watson’s as well, and I’ll do a FOTD for you guys when I buy that one! 😀
I just LOVE the fact that this stains my lips, because it looks like my REAL LIPS… when I use lipstick or gloss, you can tell that I have something on, but with this… you can’t! It just looks like my lips are naturally this luscious, sexy red color. XD
Have any of you tried these? What other lip products have you tried from Peripera? Any recommendations?
