Peripera Kiss tint #4 lip swatch

In this post, I will show you how the Peripera Kiss Tint number 4 looks like on the lips. I thought I should write this post before this product becomes totally outdated. Currently, Peripera already has a new lip tint line called Peri's tint with the cute illustrations made by Mari Kim on the packaging. I wrote in an previous post that you can get these earlier versions of Peripera lip tint for free with the purchase of a My color lips lipstick. In the promotional pictures, you can see Hwang Jung Eum wearing the Peripera Kiss tint number 2 on her lips. Peripera also gives you the advice to use lip concealer on your lips first and then apply the lip tint to get an even and a more vivid color on the lips. You can see the results of using lip concealer with the Peripera Kiss tint number 1 (cherry), number 2 (pink) and number 3 (orange) in the promotional pictures of Peripera.    

The Peripera Kiss tint number 4 (Water rose) is also a red color like number 1, but they are a bit different from each other. The above table provides a comparison of the two in Korean. It was a bit difficult translating the words, but I somehow got the gist of it. The number 1 is creamier and the number 4 is transparent and watery. The number 1 slowly gets absorbed on the lips like melting whipping cream, while the number 4 seeps in as fast as a paper tissue absorbing water. The end result of the number 1 is a bright cherry color and the number 4 becomes an innocent red on the lips.

Now let's see how it looks on my lips. As with other lip tints, you get a weird color difference between the lip and the more inner part of the lip. Maybe that's why they recommend you to use a lip concealer. I will try to use that the next time. By adding lip gloss, the lips will look less dry. Although it may not look very red, it is a lot redder in real life. I tried to show you a better picture of that in the shade.

Update (December, 2012):
I have used the Etude House Color Me Nude lip concealer stick that I bought in my second Gmarket order, before applying the Peripera Kiss tint number 4. The results were not what I expected. The lip concealer gave my lips and the lip tint a powdery finish, which is quite lovely. It looks similar to the promotion picture of the Kiss tint number 4: a subtle gradation from dark red in the inner parts of your lips to a paler pink on the outside. The dryness however is very obvious one me.

The lip concealer did not solve the problem on the upper lip. Maybe I needed to apply the lip concealer more on the inside of the upper lip as well. I was also worried about how the lip concealer makes my lips very dry, so I did not apply a thick layer everywhere. The wide stick did make application very easy.

Update 2 (May, 2013): 
I have made better pictures and you can find them in this post
