Review: Peripera My Color Lips in 10 Rose Pink

♫ 刘若英 - 后来


If you remember my Gmarket haul or Peripera lipstick review post, you probably know that I'm pretty much in love with Peripera's My Color Lips lipstick. Today, I'm going to share with you another shade from the same range, which is #10 Rose Pink.



The lipstick tube is packaged in a metallic pink cardboard box that has lace flower patterns printed on it. The packaging of the lipstick is really gorgeous. It has a pink plastic slip-on cover that has a pattern of lace and flowers with silver accents. The tube itself is metallic light pink all over with a ridged handle at the end, making it convenient to hold when pulling off the plastic cover. The overall design is very sturdy, including the plastic cover, and can definitely take a few bumps even when thrown into a messy handbag.



True to its name, the lipstick is a beautiful rosy pink colour with hints of very fine shimmer when viewed under bright light. The shimmer does not translate onto the lips when applied. It does, however, give a nice satiny shine to the lips, unlike #4 Holy Pink which is completely creme without a hint of shimmer.

I tried my best to take lip swatches that accurately shows the colour, but somehow I just couldn't capture it! >__< It is more red than the first pic (shaded lighting). The photo below is the closest I can get to the actual colour.

The Peripera My Color Lips lipsticks are still the favourites in my lipstick stash, but in a toss-up between Rose Pink and Holy Pink, I lately find myself reaching for this one (Rose Pink) more often. The texture is smooth, creamy and moisturizing, plus the rose scent is just too lovely for words. Definitely a 5-☆ rating from me! ♥

The Peripera My Color Lips lipsticks (3.5g) retail for 15,000 KRW (price may vary on Gmarket) in Korea, S$19.90 in Singapore and US$21.00 in the US. Peripera lip tints and nail polishes are now available in selected Watsons outlets in Malaysia, but the lipsticks have yet to be brought in.

✓ Pros: Gorgeous packaging, great colour payoff, lovely rose scent, moisturizing formula, generous amount of product (3.5g), wide variety of colours, good lasting power.
✗ Cons: Packaging is bulky, not easily available outside of Korea, slightly more expensive than usual drugstore brands.


Thanks for reading my review, hope you enjoyed it! :)

Nicole: Because I love pink! XD I don't really like dark vampy colours though >_< because i feel darker colours are too mature for my taste even though it's the trend right now >_<

owhellolala: They have 27 colours in total, if i remember correctly! Most are pinkish/nude colours, but they do have a few darker red colours :D

HouHouSek: Thank you! ^_^

So nice! But then you're fair my dear...of course u'll look nice.
I have to find the right colour for myself then. What I always consider is the moisture on my lips. Some lip gloss/lipstick make it hard for me to drink afterwards regardless how dry my lips are:(

LauraLeia said...

cHeRyNa: I have to agree, lipstick colours vary on individual skin tones and preference, so it's quite hard to get a universal shade. XD I have trouble with dry lipsticks too, so I usually put a layer of lip balm before/after it. :D

Mia Lia: Hahaha thank you! :D I usually go for pink-ish lipsticks coz i think they suit me better.
