It's the love month already and if you're looking for a warm, bold, and bright red lip color for a hot date night with your special someone, then this might be the product you are looking for...
Peripera Peri's INK VELVET in So Grapefruit
I received this as a gift from my blogger friend, Tellie of Beauty by Tellie, when she went back to Manila for a vacation.
Tellie actually has more shades with her and she made us (we were with Helen too) choose which shade we want. At first, I thought this was pretty much the same red shade that I have—those bold red lipsticks that are cool-toned. But as I swatched the shade, it was brighter and warmer, like it's leaning to becoming a red orange color.
Also when I swatched it, I also noticed the creamy texture yet it doesn't feel so thick or greasy. It also dried on skin pretty quickly—it's basically like the popular matte liquid lipsticks!
It's cased in this cute packaging that actually reminds me of an eye dropper bottle. I like that behind the product's name, you see a splatter of the shade as if a dropper was used to drop the "ink."
The applicator is a doe-foot applicator and it holds enough product to cover my lips.
Below are the swatches of the product:
At first swatch, you can see the creamy texture.
And after a few seconds, it dries and sets on skin and becomes very hard to remove. I smudged it with my dry fingers and it's still there!
I also tried smudging it with wet fingers and it still looks great! Only very little of the product was smudged off!
The staying power is very impressive and it can last the whole day! It's a date night-approve lipstick indeed!
Check out how I can wear this lippie...
When I apply this on my entire lips, you can see the bold and bright red shade. See how the color has a slight orange tone to it? It's a pretty sexy color!
I can also do a gradient look with it too, for a sweet and subtle look for the lips.
I definitely love this product and I want to get more shades! I think they have nine other shades and I WANT THEM ALL! Haha!
Would you wear this color? What do you think of the product?
