I'm surprised no one has reviewed this on MUA yet!Given all the online hype and the affordable price point (S$6.40 each on Shopee Singapore), I bought this in four colours right off the bat: #1 Heart Grapefruit, #2 Pretty Orange Pink, #7 My Brown Coral, #8 Glimpse Brick Brown.In terms of texture and longevity, this really lives up to the hype. The feeling on your lips is really like nothing, I forget I'm wearing lipstick. But note that this is a matte lipstick, and I wanted something a bit glossier so I might still go back to buy more Armani Ecstasy Shine or Laura Mercier!Colour description:#2 Pretty Orange Pink: Bright tomato pink, I wouldn't consider this a neutral. But it is flattering on me.#7 My Brown Coral: Such a gorgeous gorgeous nude. My favourite and most wearable shade so far!#Glimpse Brick Brown: Earthier neutral than #7. Looks a bit dull in photographs but very nice and natural in person. Good for more mature, professional settings.(To be continued)

I`m surprised at the negative reviews here. Could it be that the color I got works better? I sometimes find that to be the case with some lipstick shades, where some colors are pigmented and gorgeous, while others are patchy messes. I don`t know. The shade I have is 05 Inktude Rose. It`s a blueish red, very pigmented with one swipe. I was amazed how light and comfortable the formula feels on my lips. I didn`t feel that this dried my lips and when the color eventually faded (though it lasted fairly well through a meal and drinks), it did so in an even way. I always apply this with a lip brush, and do several thin coats, perhaps this is why this lasted longer on me than the previous reviewers?! Anyway, one downside for me is that while the color lasts really well on the lips, I have a very small mouth and I like to overdraw my lips, and on the portion outside my lips this did fade a tad unevenly. I also tend to switch up my lipsticks, so I never wear this more than a day or two in a row. Perhaps this is the reason why my lips didn`t dry up. Even so, compared to other matte formulas (Revlon, Too Faced), the Peri`s Ink was incredibly comfortable to wear. I would repurchase again, though I would try to wear the other colors before purchasing, just in case the other colors have issues, like the reviews on here seem to suggest.

The short of the long is this: HG product. My fave lip tint of all time. I chanced upon this by pure serendipity, and I thank the heavens I decided to buy one, mainly because it was cheap, and I'm a sucker for red lip products. My first Ink Velvet is #1, and as soon as I applied it, I was in love. It's highly pigmented, long-lasting, comfortable on the lips, very reasonably priced--everything I want in a lip product. I remove it by using either a micellar wipe or just plain baby wipes. I now own the other red colors #9 & #15, as well as #6. I find I reach for them more than any other lip products I own, they're that good!

I have the shade #1 Pink Ivory. This is my first foray into cushion foundations, and I am very late to the game, I know. I mainly wanted something for the summer that had a high SPF that I could take with me for touchups. This has a SPF 50 PA+++ sunscreen, which I was pretty excited about. The shade range is not all that impressive, but since the coverage is light to buildable, I wasn't all that worried. There's a mint version as well, which I believe is meant to help control acne and sebum production. This product comes in a matte plastic baby pink compact that is sturdy without being too heavy or bulky, and the flap that separates the foundation from the applicator is very secure so that I don't have to worry about it leaking in my bag. It also has a nice mirror, which again is nice for touchups. As I said, the coverage is buildable, but it does start out very light. I do find the undertone to be very pink, so if you're quite warm this might not be the best option for you. One selling point of this product is that it is meant to be long-lasting, and I do find that the wear time is pretty good providing that I don't sweat. When it does fade it doesn't break down and look cakey, but instead just sort of gracefully vanishes. It does have a strong sunscreen scent that I personally don't mind, but some who are sensitive might not like this. Overall, I think this is a good product for traveling or on-the-go application that doesn't need to be touched up every hour or two.

Asian makeup always has the cutest packaging, but I often find myself less than impressed with the formula (not always!). Sadly, this one didn't stand out of the bunch either.I got #5 - Lively Lavender and, sure enough, it's a bold lavender shade. If it stayed true to the color fresh out of the tube, I would hesitate to recommend this for anyone except like NW -100 or something, lol. Luckily, this pastel lavender dries down darker and warmer after about 10 minutes so it is wearable for a wider range of people than I had first assumed (still not a very wide range, to be honest: pastel lavender blush is hard to pull off). Also, since it has a rather strong white base, it wouldn't work on very olive tones; I'm just barely olive and it still borders on looking "off" on me.The formula is thick and not quite a full-on moussey texture, but it's almost there. As a result, I found it difficult to spread this evenly on the cheeks. And the cushion applicator is more just for laying the product down, not for blending, so fingers/brush are optimal. And I could see a clear divide where the blush ends, although it's less noticeable over time as the product melds into the skin. I've had much better results with other cream blushes. At the very least, I'd say this product is one of the most pigmented blushes I've owned among the ones from Korean beauty brands. The powder blushes I have don't even come close to the level of pigmentation as this cream blush. Still, even though this color is cute and unique, I wouldn't buy this product again.
