I was running low on my primer, so I thought it would be a good idea to try something new. I saw this on Peripera’s Instagram, saved a photo of it, and bought this in Malaysia (cheaper due to exchange rate, not because Peripera intentionally lowers its retail price).
The new Peripera Blur Pang Milk Blur Primer Collection includes 3 sweetly formulated textures for that airbrushed finish, like as if all your flaws were blurred away. This unique formula includes:
- NEW ZEALAND COLOSTRUM: Contains colostrum that was milked within 72 hours in the pristine New Zealand. The freshness of first milk provides brightening and skin barrier strengthening benefits to deliver clear and soft skin textures, just like a baby.
- JEJU GOAT MILK: Nourishes skin and an ingredient that is most similar to breast milk; contains 28% more of inorganic salt selenium compared to normal milk, for even healthier skin
- VITA COMPLEX10: A complex of 10 vitamins including B5, B7, B9, C, E, A, B1, B2, B3 and B4 for healthy and more radiant skin
Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 12.50 (Shopee)

I bought Banana Milk Blur, which promises “Coverage and Tone-Up boosting benefits”. It also comes in Peach and Pure Milk, but I felt like I wanted something that looked more natural, so Banana it was.
Packaging: Simple tube, great and easy to squeeze out an appropriate amount of product as needed. I think it would have been cuter if it came in the shape of a milk carton or milk bottle though haha.
Colour: I feel that the colour of this Banana variant didn’t suit me very well. My skin is kind of ‘yellow’, and I have warm undertones, resulting in my skin looking even more ‘yellow’, thanks to the yellow-coloured cream. The other 2 variants would probably have done a much better job for my skin. This would be more suitable for people with neutral tones, and whose skin don’t have that strong a yellow tinge to it.
Staying power: I couldn’t really tell if it did stay on for very long (because it’s a primer that’s under foundation).
Coverage: There’s little to no coverage, so you can’t use this on its own as a colour corrector if you have blemished skin. However, if you have no pimples and just want to correct your skin colour, you can just apply it for a more radiant and even look.
The primer actually feels a bit sticky when you first apply it, and it caused me to breakout on quite a few occasions. I think it may be the milk ingredient, so I’m staying away from it for a while.
For those who have sensitive skin, be careful about using this primer as well. I think there are other ingredients in this that may cause irritation and breakouts – really not worth the trouble, no matter how even-coloured your skin looks afterwards.
