Peripera, under Korean brand Clio, can now be found at Watsons Singapore. I recently played with my Peripera press pieces (say that last phrase quickly 10 times!) – here are my thoughts on them.
The Smile Fit Blusher range is similar in packaging to that of many Korean blushes.
It is also reminiscent of the Gransenbon Luxury Powders, thanks to the hidden compartment with a brush inside. The Korean packaging isn’t as sleek, though.
Peripera Smile Fit Blusher in 3 Pink Rose (S$15.90) is a clean pink.
It has a smooth satin finish and doesn’t swatch chalky. I like its cool-toned flush very much.
At first glance, the packaging of the My Color Lips range is eye-catching with its intricate floral motif, calling to mind Jill Stuart. The casing doesn’t have luxe heft but I’m certain the decorative touch will appeal to many ladies.
Peripera My Color Lips in 20 Pink Beige (S$19.90) is a clear pink-nude that applies very smoothly.
The brand promises a dewy shine and the sensation of a flower petal on the lips (such a lovely association!) with its formula containing petal extracts and rosehip oil. It feels comfortable on the lips, reminding me of the classic Japanese lipstick texture. I’m not so fond of its synthetic rose scent, though.
Peripera Wonder Kiss Gloss in 31 Peach Sugar (S$14.90) is a warm-toned gloss that, contrary to its name, “smells like grape bubble gum!” my son exclaimed.
A soft pink coral with multi-coloured shimmer, this is a very shiny gloss. It comes with an angled doe-foot applicator that makes layering a breeze.
Peripera Wonder Talk Lip Balm in 6 Wonder Orange Red (S$8.90) is an interesting product with what seems like a little magnetic token stuck to the round tin. At first, I thought it was merely a decorative piece but it’s supposed to be an applicator. The token apparently also keeps the tin securely capped, though the latter does this well enough on its own.
Inside the tin, a pair of red lips is set in a translucent orange lip gel; the pan reminding me of jelly! The middle part (the lips) of this dual-lip balm supposedly has a lip-plumping effect, while the surrounding colour makes the lips look glossy (both shades do this, actually). They are formulated to keep the lips moisturised.
Despite the name, the two shades lean cool and are pretty tints that impart a healthy tone to the lips.
In Singapore, Peripera can be found at selected Watsons stores. I’ve seen the brand at Ngee Ann City and Toa Payoh HDB Hub and am fairly certain it’s available at Bugis Junction too.
