Review: Water Gel Tint (Peripera)

Peripera Tint Water Gel Kbeauty Lip Review

Are you more of a lip tint or a lipstick sort of person? I had actually never used a lip tint until I got into Korean make up and I actually think that this is a product type that’s quite unique to Asian cosmetics. You see more products like this in Australia now but Western formulations are always more like a gloss and less like a stain – of course, this most likely comes down to differences in style.

Personally, I tend to use a wide range of products and formulas, all dependent on my mood and the overall look. I find that tints are best for days when I want a lightweight but vibrant lip colour, and not having to worry too much about retouching it. Also, since my make up style also varies, I do think that tints are best suited to Asian style or more natural looks.

Out of all of the lip tints that I’ve tried (and trust me, there are so many), the one brand that’s never let me down is Peripera! I started out with their original lip inks – there were only five colours back then – and now both their range and my collection has been greatly expanded. They had a wide range of different formulas, shades and really cute packaging.

One of the new ones that I haven’t tried before is the Water Gel Tint – and I’ve finally tried it out! I have been mostly avoiding it because I’m not very fond of water tint formulas – they tend to be too thin and a bit drying for me, but I wanted to give these a shot. I bought two of the shades – Redbeanpress and Beetpress – and they were both the perfect choice for me.

So, read on for my full review!

Review: Pearly Night Inklasting Pink Cushion (Peripera)

Peripera Pearly Night Ink Lasting Pink Cushion Kbeauty Review

I bought this product with my own money from the official store. However, this post also contains affiliate links to StyleKorean as an alternative shopping recommendation. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

Holiday season means limited edition releases and, of course, some super pretty packaging to draw us all in. For this year, one of the stand out releases from Peripera is definitely their Inklasting Cushion! I grabbed this while I was in Korea and I was lucky enough that it was also on a special promotion, so I got a bit of a discount on it. The store assistant tried it out on my skin and I got shade 2 – I was originally looking for number 1 (which was sadly sold out in-store) but this product actually ended up being a decent colour on me and I think that the lighter one might have made me look a little ghostly. For reference, I typically use a shade 21 in Korean cosmetics.

Personally, I’m a massive fan of the Peripera lip products but their base products have been a hit or miss for me – some are pretty good, and others I find a bit lacking. However, because of the prettiness of this cushion case, I had to give it a shot. This product comes in two styles – the pink and the lavender.

To be honest, I’m not completely sure about the difference between them but I assume that it’s the same as the standard version – the Pink Cushion gives you a high coverage, smooth, brightened finish while the Lavender Cushion is more about giving a non-cakey, dewy glow that has buildable coverage. I actually picked the pink cushion more because of aesthetic than preferences (because the lavender one might have been more suitable for me) but I don’t mind so much!

If you’re interested, the original version also has a Mint Cushion that has a more powdery finish and is targeted towards people with oily or acne prone skin.

Anyway, let’s move onto this review because I’m so keen to show this case!

Review: Airy Ink Velvet (Peripera)

BB Cosmetic Review Peripera Peri's Ink Airy Ink Velvet

My love affair with Peripera’s lip tints started when I was studying in Seoul and got myself two of their original Peri’s Ink lip tints after seeing how amazing it looked on my friend (and her assurances that it was the best tint she had ever used). Back then, I liked make up but I wasn’t very well versed nor experimental with the products that I used, so I didn’t really know what to expect. What I got blew my mind though and the two ended up as a staple for my daily make up. A year after, I took another trip to Seoul and found out that Peripera had since released a bunch of other variations – the Moisture, Velvet and Airy lines. I ended up trying the first two, but I hadn’t actually touched the Airy line until now.

BB Cosmetic had sent me over four of these tints to try out and review – which I am so thankful for! These are all of the original colours except for #1 Heart Grapefruit (which I wasn’t sure would suit me) so the make up hoarder in me is really glad to almost have a full set. They have also released some new colours which I will be checking out later on. For now, let’s move onto this review and I can tell you in advance that I am really happy with these!

Remember to check out BB Cosmetic to get your hands on these (or any other products from Peripera). they have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Milk Moist Pact – Pink (Peripera)

StyleKorean Peripera Milk Cushion Pink Kbeauty Review

To be honest, I’ve been putting off writing thing review for maybe a week now. Even though I had formed my opinion on the foundation pact, I wanted to badly to like this that I gave it chance after chance but, unfortunately, this product just isn’t suited for me right this moment. I’m sure that other people will like it though so, rather than just saying “I don’t like it”, I’ll be giving you some more details opinions and observations below so you can make your own judgement on whether this is the correct formula for you.

So I originally wanted to try out this product for two reasons: first, it reminded me a lot of my LUNA essence water pact, which is up there as one of my favourites of all time and, secondly, I’ve always had a great experience with CLIO and Peripera products so I expected this to be just as wonderful. Instead, I was pretty disappointed.

Read on for my review! This product was sent to me by StyleKorean and, if this suits your needs, you can definitely buy it off their site. Otherwise, they have a great range of other cushions and foundations too! I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog.

Review: Peri’s Ink Drop BB Cream (Peripera)

Peripera Clio Peri's Ink Pure Ivory KollectionK Kbeauty Review

Please note that this post uses affiliate links, but I have not been paid to write this post. Any money made from affiliate links is invested back into the maintenance and updating content for this blog.

I am a massive fan of Clio, as people are well aware, and one of their other brands is Peripera. Although I am not a hundred percent certain whether Peripera is a sub-brand or similar, I do know that they both have the same strengths in staying power and pigmentation. I’ve been obsessed with the Peri’s Ink lip tints since trying them over in Korea so I was super excited when they actually came out with a Peri’s Ink Drop BB Cream!

This product comes in the very familiar Peri’s Ink packaging, though slightly altered for the new product, and contains SPF30 PA++. It’s a little bit less than what I would usually use but, since I’ve now developed the good habit of using sunscreen, I can look past that.

If you’re interested in getting this product, or some others, check out KollectionK. They were so nice to send me a couple of products to review and I have good thoughts towards their service as well – clean shopping cart, easy to search products and a useful wishlist function. Since my first review, they have also launched a part of their website called Koncierge – a personal shopping service, for when you’re looking for products that you can’t find on their website (or elsewhere).

Unboxing and Haul: KollectionK

KollectionK Kbeauty Review

Please note that this post uses affiliate links, but I have not been paid to write this post. Any money made from affiliate links is invested back into the maintenance and updating content for this blog.

To be honest, I had sincerely thought that this post was already made! Only, I just realised that the photos were sitting in my drafts and I’ve been testing these products and thinking up the review before even doing the haul post. Aren’t I silly? Anyway, today is just one of those days – it’s rainy here in Sydney, work is rather slow and not very much is happening. As a pick me up, I figured that it would be best to do this post and look at all these lovely things that KollectionK had sent me to review! Most of these are actually things that I chose myself so I’ll talk about why I was interested in them too.

KollectionK Kbeauty Haul Review

If you’re interested in checking out KollectionK, click the link above. Although their prices are a little higher than the other stores I’ve visited, they also have one of the best designed and most user friendly stores that I have seen for kbeauty.

While I was shopping on their site, I liked to go through everything and make a wish list, which I would then go through again. If there are some items on your wishlist that are out of stock, then don’t worry about that either! KollectionK restocks very often and will even send you an email to let you know. Overall, I really love their website and think their service is good too!

Let’s move onto what I recieved!

Daily Korean Inspired Makeup

Daily Korean Inspired Makeup Cover Photo for Youtube Video by Stella from Oh My Stellar

Hi everyone! So it looks like I finally had the courage to film and post my first Youtube video – it’s kind of a long time coming. For my first one, I decided to go simple and show how I do my day-to-day make up. This look was solidified over the past year or so and is heavily influenced by the trends and styles that I saw while I was living in South Korea. It focuses on a clean, youthful style that is suitable for school, outings and work. I did darken the eye makeup slightly though, something which was more suitable now that I’m back in Sydney!

The video will be at the end of this post but, first, let me talk about my favourite products from this tutorial.
