Good morning everyone! I don’t know about you, but somehow Thursday always seems the hardest day to wake up for – my coffee needs to be stronger than usual. 😄
Today, I’m typing up my second Peripera review that’s been lurking in my drafts recently:
Peripera Peri’s Tint Marker, #2 Orange Stain
Here’s the marker:
The bottom and with the cap off:
Above are three different swatches – I swatched these in-store so you can see what else they carry and compare them. The middle one is #2 Orange Stain. The top swatch is #1 Plum Stain, and the bottom swatch is #3 Pink Stain. All three have been smudged out a bit, so you can definitely make them stronger if you like. Check out this graphic, for example:
And here’s a picture of my lips, BEFORE/AFTER, using shade #2:
Now, Peripera claims that this lip stain lasts through coffee-drinking and meal-eating. I’d say that it’s more likely to last on you with drinking rather than with eating. In my experience, it does fade a little bit when I eat, but usually drinking doesn’t affect it. Also, I’d recommend making sure that your lips are smooth – exfoliated and moisturized lips are a must, because the color does collect in dry patches! The color does tint your lips for a good chunk of the day, but by evening it will have definitely faded (gracefully, not patchy).
Here are the ingredients and rating over at CosDNA!
I like the marker form that this product takes, because you can be really precise with where you put the lip stain. I have the Peripera watery tint as well, and that one just uses a doe foot applicator and it’s not as easy to carefully apply. I really wish that Peripera carried a more muted color for the lips, because all of their lip products are so bright and lively. Which is good for some people, but my skin looks best when paired with muted colors, not bright colors. Pastels and such look great on me, but never neon colors! Luckily this orange isn’t too crazy if I make sure to apply it lightly.
I like this product a lot! I think I’ll go back to Watson’s and grab both the pink and the plum one as well – judging from the swatch on my hand, I think if I keep them a bit sheered out they should look fine on me! Yay!! 😀
Have you guys tried these? Do other companies carry marker lip products?
