Purchasing new lip colors online are always risky. You don't get to touch the product, or see it in real life. What's worse is that you can't test the color to see how it looks on you. Before I go on, this is not a sponsored post. I got this lip color using Althea's sponsored credits but was not asked to do a review on any of the chosen products.
I thought I would share this with you as I really, really love my new lip color.
I was real lucky with Peri's Tint Crayon from Peripera! From Althea's sponsored S$50, I picked the Pure Red tone from the range of five colors. I've always wanted to pull off a bold, red lip (cue pictures of Caucasian actresses).
First of, the application is easy, peasy. The crayon has a few angles - I call it the thick side and the thin side. The thin side helps to line your lip, whereas the thick side helps to fill in. Simply turn the crayon as and when needed. Not to mention, Peri's Tint Crayon fits my hand perfectly.
Secondly, the finishing is amazing. The color glides on with a creamy and moisturising texture. I placed a piece of tissue over my lips after the application and dusted some powder over for a matt-ier finish.
Like I said earlier, purchasing lip colors online is risky; you never know how it'll turn out. My experience with Peri's Pure Red Tint Crayon wasn't how it looked like in the picture above. This picture is on Althea's page when you browse Peri's Tint Crayon. Instead, it was redder, bolder and more vibrant than what it was made out to be.
Hence, I decided to go with the bold red look for an event by ELLE (ELLE x Fossil event). Paired with The Closet Lover's maxi dress with a slit (I love slits so much, by the way) and a pair of wedges, the lip color definitely brought out the glam in my outfit.
