I have promised to get down to this review for the longest time and it’s been a very long time since I’ve reviewed a cushion foundation for you, while I have a whole collection of them waiting to be reviewed. So as promised, here is my review of Peripera’s Inklasting Lavender Cushion that came out with their Pearly Night holiday collection.
There are two different cases for these. The one is pink with pink floating stars glitter, and the one I got is lavender purple with matching floating glitter.
This is what it looks like:
I convinced that the makeup is exactly the same as the ones they’ve always had, but the cases are special. So although this is called the Inklasting Lavender, I believe it’s just the case that gives it the Lavender name.
Peripera is a highly successful brand when it comes to tints. I believe that not only because I’m obsessed with their tints myself, but because I get a significant amount more views on my site when reviewing their products than I do for reviewing any other brand. Not kidding. I was flabbergasted! So I figured even though I haven’t read or heard anything about their cushion foundation being above average, I trusted that it would be just based on the success of the brand. And let’s face it: I got caught by the packaging.
This is what the container looks like when opened:
Yes, my cushion sponge is dirty. Because I couldn’t wait to take pictures before digging into it. I’m sorry 🙈
The product looks quite brown in the container, which scared me a bit, because I’m very fair, and I feared that it might be too dark. Here are the swatches on my hands:
One can see the freckles on my hands are still there. The blueness is the veins are still showing. KT didn’t look super impressive until I tried it on.
I had used this product without any concealer, pimple plaster, primer or anything whatsoever because I wanted you to see how much it really covers.
I felt like it did a great job at covering my blemishes, and my severe dark circles from chronic illness are significantly lighter after application. The product isn’t heavy or oily in any way, so if you’re looking for full coverage I’d recommend something heavier. My face feels breathable (if that even makes sense) and to me the coverage and over all performance of the foundation is satisfactory. The colour is also much fairer on the skin than in the container so my fears of it being too dark was unnecessary.
I really like this foundation, and not just because of the awesome packaging! I will definitely be buying refills.
That’s it’s from me. Till next time!
