☆[REQUEST] REVIEW☆ Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

An amazingly lovely friend of mine from allll the way back in high-school [who actually works at a local Sephora now!] has taken note of my knowledge of (mostly asian) skincare and makeup products recently, and hit me up to ask if I knew anything about the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair line. As luck would have it, the only item I’ve used from the line– the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment (what a mouthful…)– is the one he was interested in finding out more about, so I offered to write him a full review of the product including ratings on a five point scale, photos, etc. He seemed genuinely interested to see what I had to say, which brings us to where we are now!

☆SWATCH + REVIEW☆ PeriPera Colorfit Tint Water Gel in 07 redbeanpress

Let me start by saying yes, that’s the actual name of this product in shade #07. redbeanpress; All one word. I felt the need to clarify because all of the preview press I’d seen, as well as the site I bought this from, advertised and sold me shade #07 as ‘Dona Redbean Juice’, though I was reassured by the fact that I had still received shade 07– and after years of using asian beauty and other lifestyle products, studying east asian linguistics (including a lot of Japanese language), and even travel to Japan, if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that inconsistency among translations to English are more than commonplace. In cosmetics, especially, I rather expect them, and am almost more surprised by products with perfectly translated pachaging, hahah.

But anyways, I bought this product mainly because it was advertised directly on the promo material/stock photos as a MLBB– AKA ‘my lips but better’ (also, they use that phrase in Korea? nice~) lip tint– which sounded like a dream come true imo. I live for the longevity of Korean lip tints/stains (I pretty much stopped using all american lip products, save for the occasional–and also long-lasting– liquid lipstick. I literally haven’t bought a twist up lipstick in years), but they’re always such shocking shades of hot pink, red, and orange, which doesn’t match my daily look very well.

in the packaging– which I think is supposed to look like a juice bottle!
