In pursuit of a decently priced lip tint for lazy days and the popular 'gradient lip' look going around the internet, I decided on the decently priced and well reviewed Peri's Tint Water. Read on to see how I liked it!
Where to buy:
Koreadepart.com - $9.37
Roseroseshop.com - $7.00
A-poly on Amazon - $6.59
Description: Peripera has a range of different sorts of lip tints- they have tint balms, tints jellies, tint milks, and tint waters. Peripera's Peri's Tint Water comes in three different shades: cherry juice, pink juice, and orange juice. I bought the cherry juice version because I wanted a red lip tint to go with my Tony Moly gloss bar!
~ non-drying (apparently has fruit extracts)
Scent: A very faint chemical-y smell that fades immediately after unscrewing the cap. Not a big deal at all :) Additionally, I don't think that it tastes like anything really? So yea. No worries in that regard.
Packaging: The tint comes in a little glass bottle with a screw-on plastic cap. The wand is fairly standard- I'm happy that it's not a 'brush' like with some tints, as the wand makes it easy to dot a little bit on a few different places (which you can then blend easily!).
Swatch: The name tells you everything about the texture- it's just like water! This means that it's easy to spread and blend, but it does dry fairly quickly so you should be quick about it. Happily, it doesn't dry out my lips at all! Also, sorry that the pics aren't the greatest, I can't get accurate lighting for lip products a lot of the time :(
Applied moderately and blended
The tint is actually a bit redder/darker/more vibrant in real life, so keep that in mind!
Results: I'm happy with the tint! It's a fair price, easy to blend, very pigmented, and non-drying. It has pretty good staying power, as it lasts about 4 hours for me before I'd want to reapply. I quite like the color as well, it's a pinkish red that goes perfectly with Tony Moly's Petite Bunny gloss bar in cherry~ I think adding a lip gloss or something on top of the tint really helps add dimension.
I will also say that this works really well for that Ulzzang 'gradient lip' look, I was just too lazy to take pictures of my various attempts at it ;) I really don't have any valid complaints, beyond that the glass container makes me a bit nervous about dropping it haha.
Conclusion: Final Score 4.5/5
- good price
- good staying power
- easy to blend
- glass container makes me paranoid of dropping it and it splashing everything
