Brand Overview: Peripera


#peripera, the cute little sister of Clio, launched in @cvspharmacy last June and these are some of the products available.

The Milk Blur Pang Primers (I have the one in Banana Milk) moisturizes the skin with VITA COMPLEX10 (Vitamin B5, B7, B9, C, E, A, B1, B2, B3, and B4) and leaves a velvet finish. It blurs and smoothens areas with texture. It leaves a bit of a white cast so this would be best suited for fair skin tones. Because of the thick, creamy texture, this feels more like a moisturizer than a primer. What I liked most was that I thought it’s not going to work with my oily skin but it did. I still have an oily t-zone at the end of the day but it’s better than usual. I don’t look shiny at all and this didn’t make my makeup move.

The Oil Capture Pact is a powder in a cute little compact that blots the shine on your face and makes it look matte and soft. This helps mattify the skin but best suited to those who have fair skin as the powder applies a bit white.

The Ink Cara create a full eye look by lengthening the eyelashes. It has a curved brush to grab every single lash from corner to corner. The color of the mascara is exactly like its packaging. It’s auburn so I had to add a black mascara on top to tame it a bit. The curl of my lashes lasts all day whenever I use this. It clumps a bit but not spider eye levels, just enough to make the lashes defined and thick.

Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint is a long-lasting lip color that won’t leave your lips feeling heavy or sticky. I actually have this before and they are not kidding with the long-lasting part. It really lasts even after drinks. The formula was weird at first, a liquid that feels gel-like after some time. The color looks exactly the same from the applicator as well.

The Cushion Pang Lip Tint provides the lips with a glossy finish while nourishing them. This doesn’t feel sticky or heavy at all, something that for me set #kbeauty lip products apart from the others. It is not long lasting but because of the cushion applicator, it’s fun to touch-up. It applies milky but doesn’t feel creamy. It almost feels like a light balm. It looks bright pink on the cushion but appears light on my lips. The cushion makes it’s easy to apply, even in the corners.

Go-to Blushes for Oily Skin


I may suck with eyeshadows and eyeliners but blushes are my jam. I used to not have a need for them in high school – a time where I get enough sleep, I have no skin problems, and I have what they call, naturally “rosy cheeks.” Nowadays, less sleep and too much work give me sallow and dull skin overnight. With those, skincare products help but the naturally flushed look can come naturally now. The right blush can warm up the skin, create the illusion of high cheekbones, and make people look happier and healthier than they really are.  I use these to fake it.

Glossier Cloud Paint

For that flushed look, I always go to Glossier’s Cloud Pain in Puff. I thought this was too light for my Asian skin but it just looks so pretty. Thankfully, this helps brighten my whole face and has that tinge of light pink that doesn’t emphasize my pores. It’s creamy, easily blends with my skin, and a small drop can go a long way. I find this best used for the real no makeup look we all strive for. I also have Dusk, for some slightly bronzed look.

Nars The Multiple

It’s Nars’ iconic blushes in cream form. I have the one in Orgasm and, to be honest, I like this better than the original because this creates a dewy glow that highlights my tan. The color compliments my skin well and it works as a blush and as a subtle highlighter. Their multiples are pigmented and vibrant. Its sheen and color in one sleek stick for days when you’d rather be in bed but you don’t want to look like it.

Benefit Coralista Coral Blush

I can’t finish this list without mentioning one of Benefit Cosmetic’s blushes. My favorite, Coralista, is a warm pink blush that creates a subtle rosy glow. It brightens skin and has been a staple in my office desk for when I’m looking for a midday pick me up. I love that they have mini versions that include mini brushes as well. I can just leave in the office and use it whenever.

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte

For evening, this helps get the job done. I use Naughty N’ Spice, which is deeper than most of my blushes and goes on matte. It lasts the whole day and is handy – color on one side and brush on the other, for touch-ups. This is the personification of flushed and as a plus, can be applied to the eyes, cheeks, and lips, as the name suggests.

Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick

As you can see, I am a sucker for cream blushes. I feel like I can use them better on my oily skin and it applies more smoothly. Another favorite from my stash is Formentera from Charlotte Tilbury. This is the perfect summer blush. It smells like chocolate and applies like satin, stays put for hours, and provides a dewy, sun-kissed look with a rosy hint. It’s easily blended with makeup and is buildable if I need more intensity.

Marc Jacobs AirBlush

For impact and longevity, the Marc Jacobs Air Blush contains two colors to create a healthy-looking glow. The powder blush feels silky and creamy on the skin. I have the colors Night Fever and Hot Stuff, which is warm pink with a luminous finish. I can’t believe how pigmented this is. A light dab with my brush gives my cheeks colors for the day. It blends effortlessly with my makeup and its intensity lasts the whole day, up to the night. I use this for long working days and events.
