Today’s post is on a brand I’ve never reviewed before, Peripera, and their most famous famous product: the Ink Velvet lip tints!
Peripera was a relatively small K-Beauty brand that gained popularity upon collaborating with artist Mari Kim, who had reached international recognition through her work with K-Pop girl group 2NE1.
They’ve since updated their brand concept, and a lot of their products focus around the now-widely recognized “ink dropper” packaging. To be honest, the packaging never really appealed to me, so it took me forever to make a purchase until I saw how their products were constantly being raved about!
#4 Beautiful Coral Pink (미모열일)
The lip tints come in 3 formulas – Ink the Airy Velvet, Peri’s Ink the Chokchok (moist), and Peri’s Ink Original. The Airy version is supposed to have a powdery, smoothing effect for your lips, different from a regular lip tint that sinks into your skin, leaving a stain. As I’ve said before, people like me with super dry lips don’t do well with regular watery lip tints, so I was curious to see how the formula of the Airy formula would perform on me.
#1 Sold-Out Red (품절대란)
Like the name suggests, #1 is one of their most popular colours! I really wanted to get one of the tints in the Christmas packaging, so settled with this one. The Korean name for this colour translates to “Sold-Out Chaos”.
I don’t know how much longer this limited edition line will be sold, but if you can get your hands on one I totally recommend it! They come in 4 shades, and each shade has this little snow globe on top with a different character inside that floats around in a cloud of glitter when you shake it, just like a real snow globe!
The applicator for both the LE packaging and regular packaging is the same. It’s quite long and thin, allowing for precise application – something that’s necessary with these because they’re VERY pigmented!!
#1 / #4
Despite being such an opaque, comfortable formula, at the end of the day they’re still lip tints, and so when applied heavily near the lip line do experience some bleeding. If you apply them to the center of your lip and work the colour outwards towards your lip line you can avoid this completely.

These are by far the most comfortable tints I’ve ever used! They’re pigmented, long lasting, and don’t break the bank. The packaging is sturdy, easy to use, and although it might not be my style, I know many people find it very cute!
