Peripera Powerpuff Girl Ink Velvet Review 

Hello Everyone.

I want to first of apologise for being such an awoler lately. I’ve been kept so incredibly busy with choir, as I am part of 2 different choirs and we had massive performances these last few weeks. Luckily the big chorale is over and I finally have times to get back into my stash and review some of the latest goodies that I’ve been able to add to my collection.

Some of you have probably read by now that I’ve been getting into Peripera’s Ink for a while now. I’ve been encouraged to try more tints and since I almost lost my Peripera crayon and it got me Googling the brand a lot, I came across this line and then I found these. And off course who doesn’t love the Powerpuff Girls?

As soon as I saw these online, i knew I needed to get them. So here they are:

As far as I can tell, these are permanent colours in limited packaging. There is another on to the collection in s bright pink featuring the blonde Powerpuff Girl. The permanent Peri’s Velvet Ink line is similar to Lime Crime’s liquid Velvet lipsticks, in that it goes on wet but dries in a velvetty Matte finish.

Here is #2

It’s the first one I grabbed because I look like her, with my blue black hair and turquoise eyes. I must say I was expecting more of a bright red as opposed to this more orange toned red, but I am not complaining.

Here is #6

Guys don’t be like me: don’t look at the bottle and think that’s the colour of the actual product. I also thought this ones was a red. Swatch, by all means do. I honestly would not have grabbed this one had it been in regular packaging and had I swatched it. I am however surprised at how much I do like this on me, and my horizons and mindset are being broadened.

I must say I thought having an “Ink remover” is a bit excessive, but nope. These tints stay on for a very long time and I would highly recommend a lip scrub or at least really good moisture, because as all Matte lipsticks are, these will show up all the cracks and dry patches and probably add to them as well.

Here is of the rest of the collection. 

As you can well imagine I’m probably going to end up broke and happy because I want it all.

Have you tried any Peripera tints lately? What are your thoughts?

I have two more from 2 different lines to review for you so hold onto your seats.




Etude House Kissful Tint Choux Review

Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

You can probably tell that I am trying my best to get an open mind about lip tints by trying all the ones I can get my hands on. I must say with working an 32 hour work week at a kindergarten, liptints are just fantastic because they hardly need any reapplications, if any at all.

Today I will be reviewing the Etude House Kissful Tint Choux. Here is their image for the product line.


Firstly I wanted to find out what the ‘choux’ means in French, but it actually means cabage so it’s not related. ‘Chu’ however is the word they use for the sound of a kiss in Korean comics, so I’m thinking that would be a better bet. They usually start off with a limited selection of tint colours in a line and then slowly expand over the years, which to me is a brilliant concept. They scope out which colours appeal the most to their customers and the expand on those.

The colour that I got is #2 Pink Choux (호핑크 슈). This is what it looks like:


Here is the swatch on my arm:


This is what it looks like on my lips when first applied:


It’s definitely quite glossy at first, but dries to be a lovely pink lip stain. 

What are you thoughts on lip tints? Do you prefer them to lipsticks? Let me know in the comment section.




Peripera Peri’s Ink Moist

Hello Everyone

I’m back with another Peripera review for you. These are two more products that I picked up from Watson’s after I had almost lost my Peri’s tint crayon. Long story short, I got it back but felt sentimental so I splurged a bit.

Peri’s Ink is a bestseller and their original line doesn’t have the word moist added to it. I’m aware this isn’t a word that bears good connotations for many people, but there’s logic in the name 😉 The original line is a tint that dries matte and therefor has a dry finish to it after application and drying, where the Moist line is more like a gloss and doesn’t dry as fast and as matte as the original line, from whence the word moist.

The packaging is similar to the original line in the bottles are shaped exactly the same, like little a ink well with a dropper, and an adorable anime girl as the mascot. The only difference I can make out is that the Moist line has a shiny covering on the little bottle, where the original line doesn’t.

This is what the packaging looks like:


As you can tell, the containers and the boxes have a metalic sheen to them.

I got Top Red and Soul Burgundy. Here are the swatches:


and here they are on the lips:

Top Red:


Soul Burgundy:


I wore these products non stop over the last few weeks and I can’t get enough of them. The only thing I really say is that it can be a bit patchy if it’s not evenly distributed on the lips. I also don’t have a very defined lip line, so it’ easy for me to have liquid products seep into the folds and the fine lines around my mouth which can cause feathering. I’ve heard people complain that the types of products can stain, but I must admit I always, as a rule, apply lip balm before I use a tint because tints are known to by very drying. This product isn’t super drying though, which is why they called it Moist I would guess. 

Have you caught on to the lip tint hype yet? What are your thoughts? Do you have any favourites that  you’d like me to try out? Please let me know in the comment section below. 




*As a disclaimer, I don’t use any form of photo manipulation in my images, since I don’t think that’s ethical. My images are taken in natural light. I specifically take a batch of photos for my blogs on Sundays since that’s the only day that I get a break with actual sunlight. I’d like for you to see my skin with the makeup as it is, to make my reviews honest and objective, but that means you’ll have to contend with my little peach hairs, visible pores, dry patches on the the lips, coffee stained teeth and a blemishes from time to time. 

The Faceshop Disney Princess Lip tint-glass review.


Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

I promised that I would try and track down more of these lovely lip products, and I am back with another lip tint gloss.

The Faceshop has recently decided to do a huge Disney collaboration. The featured not only the Disney Princesses, but also Pooh Bear, Monster’s Inc, Mickey Mouse and more. I am somewhat interested in the Mickey Mouse collection, but the Disney Princess collection really grabbed my attention. I did sadly wake up a little late to this, so by the time I got to the Faceshop, the Little Mermaid products, which were by far the most popular, were already sold out. I will keep trying to track them down, but I’m not holding my breath. 

Some of you might have seen  my review on the two Snow White lip products. If you haven’t you can see it here.

I was able to track down the Cinderella tint and I will be reviewing that along with the Snow White tint that also featured in my previous review.

First off, here is the promotional image of some of the products that were available in this collection:


There are three lipsticks, three tints, two palettes which are exactly the same, aside from the packaging, an extensive nail polish collection, cushion foundations and hand creams. 

I didn’t really want the Tangled Rapunzel products since I am more an old school Disney Princess fan, but now thinking about it, I will pick them up if I can find them. I was able to track down two of the tints, including Snow White and Cinderella, and I also got the Snow White lipstick and some of the masks. When I do eventually (touch wood) get my hands on the Ariel lip tint, I will add it to this review and reblog it. 

Here are the tints I was able to get my hands on:


Here is #2 Cinderella swatched:


It’s very vivid orange, and probably not for everyone, but I appreciate what it looks like on me, and I feel like I can pull it off with my fair skin and black hair. 

It comes with a dew foot applicator:


They always come in handy with liquid lip products, as you can apply it neatly on the lips and along the cupid’s bow without it looking messy.

This is what it looks like on my lips:


It’s a lot more orange on the lips as it looks in the tube. It looks very luminescent in the container.  

Here is Snow White swatched:


Here it is on the applicator:


And this is what it looks like on my lips:


Overall these products are fantastic. The application is smooth and not messy at all. Something that really stood out for me about this collection is that every product has a different image. The lipstick featuring Snow White and Ariel have different images to the lip tints that feature them. They have really gone the extra mile with this collection, and the fact that it has sold out like hot cakes, should be a big indication of the quality they provide. 

The only negative thing I can say about these is that they featured a modern princess, which to me seemed so out of place. They could’ve used Belle instead, in my opinion. I also am so so bummed that I wasn’t able to get the Ariel products, since she is by far my favourite Disney Princess. 

That’s all from me for now. Hold your thumbs that I can come back soon with good news about the Ariel products!

Lots of love





Bell Lip Tint Review


Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

I promised you that I’d become more open minded to the idea of lip tint. Well I am proudly presenting another lip tint review for you, so you all can see that I am trying, and I must admit, I’m getting more open to the idea for sure 😉

It’s funny because I was out with some friends for one of our friend’s birthday and I had bought her some lipsticks. She commented how she loves them, but that lip tints just last so much longer on her lips. And it got me really intrigued about the whole concept.

Some of you may know that I collect dolls. I get them from a stationary store called Artbox here in Korea. As I went to the pay point I saw these displayed on the counter, and you all know how much I love the colour purple, which in all honesty is so hard to find in Korea as a lip product because they all end up being bright pink. I just had to try these, so I picked up the purple one which is number 6.

Bell is Polish cosmetic brand that claims to be hypoallergenic. You can look at their site over here. I am actually quite surprised that this is a Polish product. I really expected it to be Japanese or Korean since lip tints were innovated here in the east. Here is what it looks like:


What it is:

It claims to be a sort of permanent marker for the lips.

It comes with a doe foot applicator and when you first apply it looks quite blue based purple.IMG_1951.JPG

I thought:  yikes, I wanted purple and now I’m going to look like an alien! Here is the swatch:


Surprisingly enough once it dries it changes to a more magenta type purple:


With regards to it being permanent: Yeah this stuff doesn’t budge, hey. I took a strong oil based wipe and tried and tried to get it off with no success. Here is what it looked like after vigorous wiping:

The verdict:

They retail for $16 which I’d be willing to pay again, especially knowing that it’s European. 

It promises that it’s permanent and it sure is. I’m sure this stuff won’t come off till I scrub my lips tomorrow morning. 

They only come in 6 shades, so if I hypothetically wanted them all, it wouldn’t break my bank account. I can tell you right now I want the red ones and the pink one. So will I repurchase? Yes. And I know my friend will love me forever if I got her some too. 

Have you tried any of their products? Tell me what you think.



NA-EORILTTAE Persona Cushion Liptint Review


Hello Ladies and Jellybeans

I am busy with a 5 part blog series on products that I have been asked to review for Amore Pacific and their new brand called Na-Eorilttae.

Na-Eorilttae means “when I was young” in Hangul (Korean), and it’s a new innovative brand with its focus on clean, makeup and antibacterial applicators. Their cushion foundation puffs, lip tint sponges, brushes and spoolies are all designed to remain clean and free of any germs or bacteria; and their mascara and lipgloss containers are designed to not allow air to penetrate through the opening, while the product is being used; preventing the spread of germs and airborne bacteria, as well as preventing premature drying.

I have posted a review on their Edgeholic Door Mascara. You can find it here:
Today I will be reviewing one of two lip products: Persona Cushion Liptint is in a series of five different matte lipsticks. They are called lip tints, but they apply like matte lipstick from a tube. The products is dual ended. On the one end you get a retractable lipstick, and on the other a sponge tip that is meant to work as a spoolie with which you remove smudges or feathering, which can often happen when wearing matte lip products.  I was asked to choose one of five different colours, and this burnt orange colour appealed to me the most, since I love deep reds and oranges and it matches fall perfectly.

This is what the packaging looks like:


And this is the sponge, which is one of their bacteria free applicators:


Here is what the product looks like in the packaging:


This is what the it looks like swatched on my hand:

And here it is on my lips. (I’m an NW15-20 in MAC foundations for reference):


These are definitely matte, but not like typical super drying matte lipsticks. It definitely has a creamier application.

I am very pleased with these products over all, and I will definitely be getting some of the other lipsticks for future reviews.

Here is where you can find them:


They are currently on sale for w11 200 per lipstick, and the original price is w16 000. For me that is a reasonable price,  considering the quality of these products. Average Korean brands have a price range or w12 000 – w15000, so to me they are affordable and worth every scent.

There you have it, beauties. I will be reviewing three more Na-Eorilttae products in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled.



Peripera Peri’s Tint Crayon Review 

Hi Guys

I’ve been dreaming of getting my hands on some Peripera products for about 3 years now, but I always seem to spend my money at EtudeHouse instead (as most of you already know.). I didn’t know whether they were worth the price tag, but I was sold on the packaging, because it’s anime and it’s adorable. Need I say more?

So I finally made my way to Watson’s and picked out a dark vampy red tint named #1 내숭제로  (Naesung zero)

Here it is:


The packaging on its own is a cuteness overload:


img_8068 The product is a retractable pencil similar in size to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. Again I’m drooling over the cuteness of the packaging.

And it comes with a slanted edge which I adore because it’s perfect for creating a lip liner, but sadly this will wear off after only a few uses.

And here is the lip swatch:

It turns out to be a matte pin up red colour, similar to Russian Red by Mac at first, but once it dries it’s just a good old lip tint. I was afraid that this product would stain my lips for a while, as I did notice a product called tint remover in this brand, but I’m happy to say it DID NOT stain my lips. In fact it wore a good 4 hours after which it started to fade. When I brushed my teeth before bed, the last residue came right off without me even trying.
They retail for ₩9000 which is equivalent to $8 I believe, and I’d say they are worth the bucks for sure.
There you have it folks.

I hope you’ve had a lovely hump day!
