It’s December! It’s my birth month again!
Makeup-wise, that means more reason to wear reds for the lips. For me, it’s more like bright reds – even orange reds! Nothing speaks more festive like the holidays than a bright red lipstick on your face.
So, this calls for a review of my most current red lip find – the Peri Pera Ink Velvet liquid lipstick. It’s a Korean-based set of liquid lipstick under the Club Clio brand. Interestingly, most, if not all, of the shades are different versions of red. For my pick today, I chose the shade Inktude Rose.
Initially I thought it would be a little muted red, like something red but not really strikingly red. You gets what I mean? But then I found that you can actually build up the color to make it more intense. However, one layer for me is enough for everyday wear. In the pic here, I had two layers.
The formula of this is amazing. It lasts forever – even leaves some stain after a meal or a drink. But while it’s matte, it doesn’t dry out my lips. It wears comfortably for about 5-6 hours. Of course, like all liquid matte lipsticks, you have to wait for it to completely dry to make it last longer. It goes on light, smooth and creamy, more like having a mousse texture. I also like wearing it as a stain, or doing the “ombre” lips that the Koreans have been sporting lately.
At the Club Clio store, this goes for about Php495 each. I think that’s quite cheap for a great quality liquid lipstick. The packaging is also cute, which comes very handy for me. I only got one when I went to the store before, because I wanted to test it out first. Now I think I need to browse the store to see more shades.
Have you ever tried these Peri Pera Ink Velvet liquid lipsticks?
