Review: Peripera My Color Lips in 06 Cherry Pink

♫ K.Will - 촌스럽게 왜 이래 (You Don`t Know Love)

I recently hauled another couple of Peripera My Color Lips lipsticks from Gmarket via Ceebery, and now I'm here to share my love for them once again!

My ♥
The shade I'll be sharing with you today is #06 Cherry Pink 체리핑크.

As per usual, the lipsticks are packaged in a pretty metallic light pink paper box with floral designs, with the shade number and name printed on a sticker seal at the top of the box. The lipstick itself is super pretty (I can't say this enough wtflol) - a pink plastic cover with intricate silver floral prints, and a pale metallic pink lipstick bullet with a cookie-shaped bottom with the Peripera logo. Excuse me while I take a minute to caress this little beauty. (⊙‿⊙✿)

#06 Cherry Pink 체리핑크 is an intense pink shade that leans red. I'm not really good at describing colours, and there doesn't seem to be an official shade description from Peripera, so my best attempt would be saying it's something between crimson and carmine red. It is slightly redder than the photo below.

Below are some swatches.

Despite its colour in the tube, the lipstick applies more pink than red, and a very vibrant cherry pink at that. It is definitely one of the brightest shades in the range, and very pigmented. You can swipe 1 layer and blend it for a subtle everyday look, or build 2-3 layers for full opacity and intensity.

Of course, the main selling points (besides the awesomely stunning packaging) of this lipstick for me is that it has a faint rose scent and has good moisturizing properties. They don't dry out my lips and are pretty long-lasting, especially the darker/brighter shades which will leave a slight tint even after food and drink.

The Peripera My Color Lips lipsticks (3.5g) retail for 15,000 KRW (price may vary on Gmarket) in Korea, S$19.90 in Singapore and US$21.00 in the US. Peripera lip tints, nail polishes, and other products are now available in selected Watsons outlets in Malaysia, but the My Color Lips range have yet to be brought in.

✓ Pros: Gorgeous packaging, great colour payoff, lovely rose scent, moisturizing formula, generous amount of product (3.5g), wide variety of colours, good lasting power.
✗ Cons: Packaging is bulky, higher price point, not easily available outside of Korea, colour will settle into lines on dry lips.

To be honest, even I'm surprised by the depth of my love for these lipsticks. They are definitely my HG lipsticks, and would buy the entire range if I could. For now, I'll be content with the five that I currently own (although I am eyeing a few more for my next order), so stay tuned for another review soon! (✿◠‿◠)

That packaging is to die for. So intricate and so pink! Definitely worth a look! Okay fine, they are going into my cart *looks around furtively because I have no business buying more lipsticks until I finish at least five*
