Peripera: Ink Airy Velvet

 8g | approx. £7 from here

Ink Airy Velvet is a lip tint which is supposed to glide on smoothly, offer vivid colour and a soft, velvety texture to your lips. There are currently 15 shades available including pinks, nudes, corals and browns. I have the shades:

  • It Brown Orange (#6) - a pretty subdued orange with warm brown undertones
  • My Brown Coral (#7) - more coral than brown. I find that the natural pigmentation in my lips show through more with this shade
  • Glimpse Brick Brown (#8) - a dusty pink-brown. My favourite everyday shade
  • Legend Brown Red (#9) - has more of a rosy pinkish-red undertone than brown

I love the formula of these tints as they're extremely lightweight and, well, airy on the lips. Once applied, you can forget about it. The mousey texture means that you don't experience heaviness on the lips and you don't have to be concerned about smudging or transferring because it dries down to a flattering stain.

These lip tints are buildable. You can adjust the opacity depending on the number of layers you apply i.e., from sheer to full. I find that it's best to apply in thin layers or else it can start to look a little chunky on the lips. I like to dot a little on the centre of my lips and then dab it outwards. After allowing it to dry for a couple of seconds, I apply the tint in the same manner again until I'm happy with the coverage.

Lip tints can be known for being quite drying however; I don't have that problem with these. As long as I exfoliate before applying them, they feel comfortable no matter how long I wear them for. This low maintenance lip tint is ideal for those situations where you don't want to be continuously re-applying your lip product e.g., at work.

With it being so affordable and the brand regularly extending the shade line, I definitely want to cop a few more shades in the future.
