Peri‘s Cushion Lip tint review
My lips are finally in a state where I can properly review lip products again! First up is this fun little lippie by Clio’s little sister brand, Peripera. It’s called Peri‘s Cushion Lips. It comes in a plastic tube and it’s delivery system is the ever popular cushion sponge tip. While it might seem unwieldily at first if you’re not used to cushion products, I have a serious soft spot for this and all cushions out there. To use you simply squeeze the tube and the lipstick snakes out onto the cushion, from there depending on what look you’re going for you either tap the cushion onto your lips, or spread it on the lips like butter. One of my favourite parts of the cushion tip is the ease with which you can build opacity or control the colour if you’re looking for a more sheer look. The cushion is soft, very reminiscent of the material used for doe foot applicators but with slightly more give and cushier. With some squeeze lip cushion products (I’m looking at you, Etude House Rosy Tint Lips!) squeezing the tube was difficult as the contents housing was too stiff, but this one is a whole hell of a lot easier to control compared to others. There are eight different shades to choose from and I chose shade #4, PKo7, here’s how it looked:
The finish is a velvet type cream, so be sure you have well hydrated lips and a good lip balm to prepare your canvas, otherwise your dry skin bits will get magnified and clung to.The wear time is average and this does transfer, if you’re looking for a long wearing stain this is not it. You have to be vigilant with upkeep but not overly so. I’d say it has more lasting power than a typical cream bullet lipstick but much less so than a stain. What really stood out for me was the delightfully cheerful colour. It’s a perfect tropical wash that reminds me of hibiscus juice! I’ve wore this colour out recently to a Caribbean festival parade and got several compliments on it. It’s bold and fun without being garish or over the top. From the pictures I’ve seen online I wasn’t expecting the colour to come out the way it did so it was a wonderful surprise! Overall I would recommend this product, especially if the other colour choices are as lovely as this one. In my opinion this is a far superior product to the Etude House cushions tints I’ve tried, and a fun option.
