Thoughts – I tried these on different occasions and got different results. The first time I swiped it on in my desire to replicate a gradient-lip look; I was in love! It was the perfect natural rosy tint that I see on K-Dramas. My lips looked petal soft and kissable. The dusty pink color is flattering for my fair olive complexion. Light without looking too pale.
I’ve used different kinds of lip products before to produce a gradient-lip look. But the formulation of Peripera Airy Velvet Tint makes it soooo much simpler and easier! When it dries, it sets. It doesn’t smudge. So your gradient lip stays the same.
During the 2nd time, even though my lips weren’t dry. The application didn’t look as good as the first. My lips looked flaky, chapping, and color distribution was uneven. Reason? I forgot to exfoliate my lips/ If your base isn’t smooth, the application won’t be as nice. So I highly recommend that you use a scrub to remove the dead / dry skin on your lips. Not only for this tint but also for other lip products.
Who do I recommend this to? To gals who want to cop a gradient-lip look.
