Peripera Ink Airy Velvet 11 Pinkish Grapefruit Vs Peripera Ink Gelato 01 Lively Red
I never blame Peripera for taking my money since I do love their products, especially their lip products. Lately, Peripera added some Spring-Summer shades for their Ink Airy Velvet and few weeks after that they launched their new lip color, Peripera Ink Gelato. Of course, I couldn’t skip both of them.
They added 5 lovely colors for Peripera Ink Airy Velvet and I chose the shade #11 which is Pinkish Grapefruit. Meanwhile the Ink Gelato has 5 pretty colors as well and I got mine in shade #1 Lively Red. In this review I will compare both the Ink Airy Velvet and Ink Gelato, so if you are a newbie in Peripera’s lip product and confused which one is better to buy, you come to the right place!
Peripera Ink Airy Velvet : Provides full and glamorous color payoff with a velvety formula that provides comfort and a long-lasting effect. The soft formula and feathery, unique applicator allows for easy, full application and dries down into a natural matte finish.
Peripera Ink Gelato : A gelato-like lip lacquer which spreads and melts evenly onto your lips. Color sticks to lips with weightless and non drying matte finish.

Comparison Review: Peripera Ink Airy Velvet 11 Pinkish Grapefruit Vs Peripera Ink Gelato 01 Lively Red:
Both of these products have ‘ink’ theme for the packages. They come in small bottle with ink dropper-like cap. Both are lovely and eye-catching. The Peripera Ink Airy Velvet is shorter, a little bit chubby and totally pretty with its frosty tube design. Meanwhile the Ink Gelato has slimmer and taller tube, looks more sleek and simple.
The score of the packaging may be different depends on your preferences. If you like travel friendly package then the Ink Gelato wins. But if you are more in cutie things, the Ink Airy Velvet will come out on top.
These products also come in cardboard box. Again, the Ink Gelato’s box comes sparingly with its simple design. But both of the boxes have enough information about each product in Korean and English.
Both of the applicators come in doe-foot type, but have different brushes. The Ink Airy Velvet brush is slim with a slant. Peripera also made this brush pointy so it can apply the product easily and precisely, even on my lip corners.
On the other side, the Ink Gelato has curvy brush, S-shape. It is supposed to help us apply the product easier with its hugging shape. Unfortunately, the brush is not pointy on the tip thus I struggle a little bit more to apply the product onto my lip corners.
Frankly, I have 50:50 score for these brushes. I like the shape of Ink Airy Velvet brush as it is slim, slanted, and gathers appropriate amount of the product. But, compared with the Ink Gelato brush, its bristles are longer and look more hairy (it is clearly shown on photo) and somehow, when my lips get very sensitive and dry, I feel like the bristles prick my lips.
Meanwhile, the Ink Gelato brush feels more fluffy. It still feels smooth even though my lips get very sensitive. Just need it to be more pointy, I guess. But overall, they are still nice applicators apart from some tiny gripes.
Peripera Ink Airy Velvet has sweet floral (like jasmine) scent. Actually this S/S 2018 edition has slightly softer scent than its previous edition (the first and F/W 2017 edition). But it is still quite strong for a lip product. Moreover, it has floral scent instead of fruity or candy one, thus some people probably feel a bit weird to apply it onto lips (you know, like eating flower, LOL).
Peripera Ink Gelato has better scent in my opinion. It is a fresh minty-cherry scent which is not too strong and still acceptable for anyone. And guess what? this scent is exactly same with my Etude House Color In Liquid Lips Mousse (they even have similar texture as well).
Peripera Ink Airy Velvet vs Ink Gelato is like creamy-mousse vs gel-mousse. Both have nice texture and consistency. They also glide smoothly and are blendable, but the Ink Airy Velvet spreads easier than the Ink Gelato. Why?
So the Ink Airy Velvet texture is very creamy with a little bit watery content in it. It is so weightless and mousse-y. The consistency is very nice and it blends and spreads so easily on lips. It has a little amount of shine after applied and then turns to velvety-matte when it completely set.
The Ink Gelato comes in a mousse-y gel texture and, however, it is thicker than its sister. It doesn’t bring any watery content and feels a bit sluggish. Hence, I guess, it makes this product a bit hard to spread evenly compared with the Ink Airy Velvet. Moreover, its applicator doesn’t gather enough amount of the product (the S shape doesn’t work effectively for its texture) thus we need to dip the applicator several times to get nice application.
Unlike the Ink Airy Velvet, the Ink Gelato has no shine since the first application. It set faster than the Ink Airy Velvet and has more matte finish. Though it is more matte but I can not say it is dead-matte. Actually it is still velvety matte (typically Korean matte style).
Well, I think my photos can tell better. Especially on lips swatches, you can clearly notice that the Ink Gelato is more matte yet still look velvety. Meanwhile the Ink Airy Velvet reflected a little shine on its velvety, soft matte finish.
Firstly, I will describe the colors themself. Peripera Ink Airy Velvet #11 Pinkish Grapefruit is a warm shade that gives more orange-ish hue rather than pink. There is also a little red hint when I wear it on my pigmented lips. This shade is pretty vibrant and looks perfect in cheerful Spring or Summer. It leaves pink stain on my lips. So yeah, it explains its own name, Pinkish (stain) Grapefruit, haha.
Peripera Ink Gelato #1 Lively Red is an apple color. It is red with a little hint of orange and also has warm undertone. The color is beautiful and still look natural on lips, not too bright. Compared with the Pinkish Grapefruit, Lively Red is calmer and it gives dark pink stain, almost red on my lips. However, both are wearable for daily.
At first, I thought the Ink Gelato was not that pigmented and kinda transparent but when I swatched it on my hand and looked closely, this product is actually nicely pigmented. I guess there is another reason why this gel lip color seems to be less in color payoff.
As I said, Ink Gelato texture is slightly sluggish and a bit hard to spread out, moreover, only a little amount of the product that is gathered on its applicator. Thus, we probably keep thinking it’s not good in pigmentation as we need to dip the brush many times to have a full lips application.
Though Ink Gelato is good enough in pigmentation, but the winner is still the Ink Airy Velvet. It has great pigmentation and covers my natural lip color perfectly. But overall, both Ink Airy Velvet and Ink Gelato have good color payoff and they can be layered to create bold look as well, and they will not feel heavy on lips.
Peripera is one of the best brands that do a great job for long-lasting lip products, including these 2 products. Ink Airy Velvet and Ink Gelato have same score for this point. Either one is great in staying power and have pretty stain that can stay all day on lips until you ask a help from your makeup cleanser to remove it.
They last up to 5 hours (without eating and drinking too much) on my lips before the colors start to fade away. They wear off after eating heavy meals and still leave lovely stain on lips. They do not look flaky nor patchy on my, ehm, healthy lips (well, luckily, my lips are in great condition lately, hehe).
The down side is both of these products are not moisturizing, so prepare your lips with lip balm and if needed, scrub your lips first to avoid flaky result. Though has no moisturizing effect but the Ink Airy Velvet doesn’t make my lips drier. My lips stay in their normal condition. Unfortunately, the Ink Gelato is not that friendly. It dries my lips a little bit. Maybe not a fat issue for normal lips, but I believe dry lips do not like it.
After all, aside from the pros and cons, these products are very nice in quality for their affordable prices. Each product works in its own style and purpose. Ink Gelato is for a matte lip lover who wants to have a real velvety matte that feels weightless and lasts long. The Ink Airy Velvet is for anyone who prefer soft velvety matte, airy-like that won’t look dry on lips. But in personal, I like Ink Airy Velvet slightly more than Ink Gelato.
