OK, so, I like this liquid lipstick. I really, really like it. But then there are a couple of cons, and they are:
  • In my head now ---> "Oh great this is JUST grrreeeattt now I have to get the other two shades." (PS: This is a con in my case.) (PPS: Malaysia only gets three shades out of the full five, if I'm not mistaken.)
  • This liquid does NOT like to come off your lips. Not at all, girls.
Since I said I really like this lipstick, I also want it to just win, basically, so I've got to list down some pros now just to outweigh the cons:
  • They are affordable.
  • They look adorable.
  • Hence, they are affordorable.
  • It doesn't come off your lips.
It's funny how one thing can be the pro AND the con, isn't it? Life is made interesting because of that, I feel.

I've been showering Japanese makeup products with so much love that I feel it's time to expand my makeup horizon just a little bit, and what better way to do that than trying on some Korean makeup products? 


I spotted the brand Peripera at Watsons and was immediately drawn to its cutesy, kitschy design. So cute, guys, I mean, look at that wide-eyed dolled up girl on the bottle and tube! I've heard great things about the quality of Korean makeup so I immediately swatched Peri's Ink in shade 5 on my hand with its lipgloss-like applicator, which came out as this strong, very pigmented and pretty pinky-red shade. Loved the colour and texture, so bought the lipstick.

Normally when I swatch lipsticks on my hand in a store, I'd wipe it off with a tissue and it would smudge off right away; if the lipstick has particularly good pigmentation, a wet wipe or a makeup-removing wipe would do the trick. 

Well, that did not happen with this ink; I went home and used my best makeup wipe to get rid of it and about 30% of it would NOT budge. Took me a day and half of eating and drinking just to get it completely off. (Note: Eating and drinking help. A lot.)

So THAT explains why they sell Peri's Ink remover... I finally (and wisely) got the remover and put the Peri's Ink lipstick on again just to test out the ink remover, which you're supposed to squeeze out on your finger and buff all over your lipsbut even then, about 5% of the ink haloed my lips still.

All in all, like I said, I really like this lipstick. This is my first ever liquid lipstickand my first Korean lipstick!and I have to say it's a really good one. Love the bright colour with the slight sheen finish. 
But just don't forget to grab a tube of the ink remover if you decide to buy a bottle of Peri's Ink!

I'm quite a practical person when it comes to makeup but I'm willing to endure the frustration of not getting it off just for Peripera's vibrant hues!
