I have an embarrassing confession to make: I initially thought that this lip tint was a liquid blush when I first saw it on Peripera’s Instagram. So I went to Sasa, swatched this, and still didn’t realize it was a lip tint until I opened it up at home. I don’t know why I was under such an impression, but you now know how blur I can get 🙊

Peripera emphasizes its star ingredients here: maple syrup, Manuka honey extract, and Muscovado sugar – all meant to moisturize your lips. They do rank pretty low on the list so they’re not present in huge amounts, but probably enough to convince you that they should have an effect.
I used to love pinks, but eventually gravitated towards nudes and corals because I felt that they were more flattering for my skin tone. I got this in #3 Pink Melon, a peachy kind of pink.
Packaging: I think the bottle is cute, but I’m not sure what this is supposed to look like. A maple syrup bottle?? Honey bottle?? Maybe, I don’t know. It is slightly bulkier than, say, the Airy Ink Velvets, but still lightweight and compact enough to stuff it down your pocket.
Colour: I started picking nudes and bright colours for different types of lip products – bright, intense colours for lip tints, and nude ones for lipsticks. I really like having a brighter, sweeter colour to do a gradient lip look, or if not just ‘juicy’ lips. This pink doesn’t really look like watermelon flesh or anything, but it’s a versatile colour that will complement most skin tones. As with most lip tints (or Korean, at least), there’s nothing to complain about the rich colour payoff. I do love how glossy the product looks on the lips, because it really helps to brighten up your face.
Staying power: I’m not super impressed by its staying power, and especially less so for a lip tint. It’s not sticky, but also not the most ‘dry’ formula there is, so when you eat or drink, a good portion of the colour comes off. I definitely cannot go through a meal and expect to see a full colour left, maybe just traces of it. If you are the kind of person who hates having to touch up every time you eat something, do take note of this.
While there’s nothing really ‘wow’ about this lip tint, I’m such a sucker for Peripera’s affordable and high-quality products that I didn’t mind buying this at all.
If you already have a ton of lip tints sitting on your vanity table (yes, I know many of us are guilty of this), it probably wouldn’t hurt to buy one more, but it also won’t hurt if you don’t buy this – you get what I mean?
