[REVIEW] Peripera Ink Black Cara Long Setting Mascara

Peripera Ink Black Cara Long Setting Mascara Review:

I study in one of the most famous shopping areas for girls here in Seoul, so temptation is big wherever I turn. But Peripera is a brand famous for its affordable and fashionable products, and since most people seem content with the quality I decided to give it a shot too!

Well, I use mascara a lot. I have a few eyelashes that point down or inwards and mascara is the only way to fix them with a not-inwards curl! My eyelashes are already black and relatively long, so my main goal when I get mascara, other than fixing them in a non painful way, is to make them look full and separated. I don’t like clumpy mascara on myself.


For length and lift. Jet black ink.

Smudge free all day: this long wearing mascara is completely waterproof and stays smudge free all day through sweat and water.

On the package there is no information about the product, and I accidentally threw the outside paper box out! So I just ended up checking for all the information online. But that’s okay, it was my own fault…

Now, here if you can notice, there’s a small detail that really bothers me. The color of the package is not printed, but it’s wrapped in a plastic! I had to hold back not to peel it off, and I’m still trying not to peel it off. But it’s really hard because this type of packages look really cheap to me, and now that I noticed it I can’t unsee it!

The mascara applicator (and brush) are pretty standard. Comfortable to grab, and these curved brushes have the advantage you can choose how to use them! In my case I use the bottom part (bottom in this photo haha) to apply the mascara, and the top part to thicken the mascara.

I find that the bottom part helps apply the mascara while separating the eyelashes. Then the top part thickens the mascara while fixing those crazy eyelashes I have in place.

The only small problem with this applicator is that I never manage to clean that excess on the end, and I’m very clumsy so I sometimes dirty myself. On the bright side I usually only apply mascara on my outer eyelashes so the applicator never touches the inside of my eyes.

The handle, I already mentioned it’s really comfortable, but here you can see it has that nice texture that clings to your fingerprints, and makes us all spiderman. I have a firm grip, but in case someone who reads this doesn’t have it then I thought it nice to mention.

As I said, I don’t care for lengthening the eyelashes, but for this review I layered it two times until the very end of the eyelashes. You can see it added quite a few millimeters to my eyelashes. They stayed their normal dark black color (jet black!!) while becoming thicker.

Now, another very nice thing is that, this mascara once it dries… it’s really dry. It basically hardens. Some people might not like that, but as I said I have eyelashes that point inwards so I need them turned out and to stay out.

This is a blurry photo and I apologize. But it still fits the purpose. As you can see here I only applied it on my outer eyelashes, and had eyeshadow and everything. I went out for 6 hours, under the sun and heat, I sweated. My eyelashes stayed in shape, that is very true!

But it is not completely smudge proof, as they said. You might have read above that my eyelids are very oily, and it’s because of that. But it barely smudged and having this information it’s easy to fix that during the day. Honestly my friends didn’t even notice it was smudged (well, I do wear glasses, but still).

Overall I am very happy with this for the price, because of its comfortable size it’s ideal to have in my pouch. But I still prefer other mascaras overall (Kiss Me Heroine Mascara for color and power, L’Oreal Manga Mascara for curling and length) but those are too big and double the price here when they are not on promotion.

This one is comfortable, and it’s good for the price. I might not wear it on special days, but at least I get to carry it in my bag and do makeup when I arrive to school!

Will I purchase again? If I can’t find any other small sized mascara I want to try, then yes. Over these past weeks I have found the utility of having a small sized mascara to carry around and got used to having it around in a matter of days.
