Chooseday Tuesday: Peripera Peri’s Water Tint

Hello Lovelies! It’s this time again of the week that I get to pull another lip product and do a review for you. As promised, my month long highlight of newly purchased lippies. For this Tuesday, it’ll be Peripera Peris Tint Water.
This was purchased online under the sale tag. I got this for a bundle which means there are a few more lip products along. image The best part would be the freebies.  imageAll three for a price of Php 800 ( $17 ).
For the span of time that I was on a low buy, different kinds of Korean lip products came soaring in the market. Let’s just say I was making up for my absence. Taking in mind that it was also the hype then that I refuse myself to dive in. I wouldn’t see myself owning these three all at the same time just like this. Unlike now, everyone is calm and behaved and on sale. Wohoo!
This would be my second Korean lip tint purchase for this month. Although Holika is also the same, this doesn’t come with a balm but a sole glass bottle of liquid tint which pretty much reminds me of Benetint.

Lip tints has been a go to lip product since Tony Moly made it’s impression on me. What brings me to this are: lightweight and easy to use. No feathering, no smudging. Matte finish. Natural looking colors and most of all economical. I say this 6.5ml would last me a lifetime.
Okay, let’s go down to the product. Peris Tint Water is only one of the few from the Peris Line of Peripera. As predicted, the cute packaging is always a bonus. The girl in the box. Am I seeing an Arianna Grande inspiration? Her bow looks like ears to me. On to what it says on the box:

Like juice, this water tint spreads upon lips with vivid colors. With a single touch perfectly dewy colors give an elegant look. Fruit Complex help give vitality to the lips.

Aside from this brief description in English, the rest is already in Korean so I have to consult the web again for further understanding.

Peri’s Tint Water comes in five colors. Though you could still see it as the basics, I’m pretty much surprised to see an orange one which often than not included in this typical line. Unfortunately because it’s on sale, only a few stocks were available. What I’m reviewing with you now is #1 Cherry Juice.

Claims

  • lightweight
  • long-lasting
  • suoer bright colors

Impression

Aside from being a lip tint which is already an edge for me, with all honesty I was thinking that this will be my solution for my long overdue lust over Benetint. Don’t be suprised why for the longest time, I haven’t purchased one. The tint comes in a liquid form, not your jelly type consistency of lip tint so it’s not sticky. That for me is a pro already because I should say, with an experience with lip tints I could vouch that liquids doesn’t give you that sticky film in your lips which is quite annoying. Why Liquid? Because it’s made to resemble fruit juices for Peripera’s explanation. I see a good vibrant color in one swipe with it’s doe foot applicator. This is one of my qualm though for lip tints, I find doe foot applicator unhygenic. Though I find some that comes in a brush which personally I would prefer. It didn’t settle on my lip lines which is another good point. Didn’t dry my lips but it’s highly recommended to exfoliate to achieve best results. It lasted me a good five hours with occasional water intake and lips licking. I had this used by my sister. She is acidic so I found out that her lips seems to eat the tint. Needless to say, it didn’t last her that long so she have to re-apply. So for those of you who have the same state, this would probably might happend. It’s a matte finish so there’s no smudges or transfer. I would also like to point out that I used this as a cheek tint due to curiosity. I find that it blends evenly on my “after” swatch giving you a subtle flush color which I love. ( I have to give a seperate review on this when used as a cheek tint, promise! ) No bitter after taste, more of like a candy. No overpowering smell. One thing I noticed is that it seems to bleed on my teeth. I end up looking like a vampire who just finished drinking a glass of blood. Ok, just exaggerating, in effect for the coming Halloween. *wink* But seriously, you have to apply in good moderation, and avoid pressing your lips whilst it’s wet for it tends to stain your teeth.

Pros

  • liquid consistency
  • lightweight
  • no sticky feel
  • vibrant color
  • smooth application
  • doesn’t dry lips
  • matte
  • no transfer/smudge proof
  • no overpowering smell/taste
  • lasts for hours
  • affordable

Cons

  • doe foot applicator
  • bleeds on your teeth

To sum it up, Peripera Peri’s Tint Water is a highly recommendable product. It’s a good Benetint sub for those who doesn’t want to splurge. Has an outstanding attributes for a lip tint. Because of it’s liquid water consistency, a bottle could lasts a long period of time. Very buget friendly. I would rate this a 7/10 if only not it’s staining my teeth.

Peripera is a namesake of a Persian fairy, Peri. It is manufactured in South Korea.

Until my next lippie review ladies. Ciao!

Chooseday Tuesday: Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lip Master

I recent purchased this Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lip Master in RD801 or Club Red through a trusted online shop Koreana_ph
I’ve been a lover of Korean lippies. The au-naturele look that it gives sells so much to me being that of a “less-makeup” wearer. Mattes are less drying but with little shine that gives lips a luscious looking one. Colors maybe all safe but I feel that it still adheres to our Filipina skin tone. Enough said, here’s a first impression review as promised. image
Kiss Lover Lip Master comes in a sleek black packaging with a doe foot applicator. imageProduct glides on perfectly on the lips. A word of caution though, thorough exfoliation must be done first for the product tend to settle on fine lines. Standing time is good for four hours without eating or drinking. Good pigmentation. imageGives lips that certain moisture as it stays on. Because it’s a lip gloss, it’s expected to have transfers but minimal. Consistency is creamy with a mousse kind. imageOnly downside for me is the taste. Though it has a fruity smell which reminds me of my childhood medicine but tastes so awful. I don’t know why it’s so strong that I always end with a goofy face whenever I taste it. And it stays! For the price: Php 548.00 mall. Got it for Php 290.00
Okay, let’s now go down to what it says in the web.

Claims
– Gloss + Tint + Lipstick
– Moisturizing

Most vivid color appliance than matte lipstick, but soft as velvet and moisturizing as lip lacquer

My say:
Indeed, true to it’s color and really moisturizing. I didn’t experience dryness on the lips or flakes after wearing which is usually my problem with bold colors.

Perfect color line lip stick, long lasting glossy moisture with vegetable oil and butter ingredients for hydrated lips.

*My say:
To date I must say that this lip product has the most oil ingredient that I’ve seen not to mention the butter. Overwhelming!
-Jojoba oil
-Olive oil
-Argan oil
-Pomegranate oil
-Rosehip oil
-Shea butter
-Mango butter
+ Honey extract
Color line is not that impressive. Pretty much the usual.

Pros
*
moisturizing
* highly pigmented
* no sticky feel
* no greassy looking gloss
* lightweight for a lip gloss
* no dryness, flaking for a matte tint
* affordable

Cons
* smell
* taste
* if you intent to bring this around be careful not to tilt for the product settles on the applicator.
Verdict
I’m happy that I’ve found my way to this product. I’ve shy away to lip glosses ever since because of the high shine. I feel that my lips look bigger. Aside from this, the sticky after feel distracts me. Lip Master has proven this all wrong. It’s one product that live up to it’s claims. I feel that I could wear this on an everyday because it’s not too heavy and with a healthy looking shine that I could tolerate.

Though the taste is a big distraction for me, I would still give this a 8/10 rating.
More Korean Lip product reviews to come so you better hold on tight and stay tuned!

Trending Thursday: My Korean Addiction

I could honestly say that aside from the patriotic love I have for our local brands, I’am also a loyal user of Korean products. I don’t know which came first, the Idols or the Makeups? Anyways, just like my fascination with it’s country (same withJapan) I have high respect with their brands. How they live to their claims, how they are all innovative and gentle on the skin. In addition to this are the Hallyu stars who have the fairest, dewiest vampire looking skin. They don’t really age! And how’s that?! I know, who wouldn’t want to look young. Okay, my emotions now are going on top of my head. *breath* If my reasons aren’t valid enough to love them, what else?

At the first hit of Korean Wave in our country, long before the flagship of different makeups and skincare in Myeongdong had mushroomed here, there goes the  fame of different online shops. Most of these shops caters to Korean makeups. This online shop that my sister and I have been following were the one who gave us our first taste of Hallyu (Korean wave) and I should say the rest is history.

Koreana_ph has long been standing for almost 7 years now. We accidentaly got to know her through Facebook which by then is her personal account. Until such she had become a license distributor of Lioele products here, and now most of our local stars had become her loyal clients. I decided to feature her because of the credibility that she had, an approachable person that you wouldn’t hesitate on asking queries. Most is that a trustworthy online shop that lives up to it’s name.

What made me decide to chose on buying through her online is because 1) I got to avail of good sale items that is unfortunately seldom offered in stores here. 2) unique finds 3) freebies! just like in Korea. I could still remember my first BB Cream which I got as a free sample from here and my ever trusted Lioele primer that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Just recently that we we’re able to purchase again from her after.. 3 years I guess. Yet her kindness  in assisting us is still unwavering. Okay, down to my new babies which I’m so excited to show you.

While the Pro: Beauty Tint Tok I got for Php 280 ( roughly $ 6) I’m not sure of it’s mall price but originaly it’s Php 400 (roughly $9) I saw from Holika’s site in US that it’s worth $22 (whoah!)

To sum it up, I got a total of Php 620 *shipping fee included* (around $13) It’s like two for the price of one, I still got to save a good amount enough to buy another one.

The best one would be the freebies which is a Fresh Snail Mask Sheet from 3W Clinic which is I’m excited to try. image

Individual reviews would be done the soonest, I promise! Until then, keep yourself posted. 🙂

I don’t hesitate to give a post feature to those who are deserving and in which I guaranteed 100%. To this I gave it to Scherique of Koreana_ph for being a credible and trusted online shop that I’ve known for in years. Her’s worth to be known by others. You could check out  her Facebook page here and also on Instagram.
