Peripera Inklasting Cover Foundation 01 Ivory Review:
If you ever read my review on Peripera’s Ink Blurring Skin Tint, then you know that I’m a big fan of that product. Until now, the Skin Tint is still in the list of my favorite foundations so I was really excited when I saw Peripera launched another foundation for their Ink family, this time called as ‘Ink Cover Foundation’.
If I read it right, the Ink Cover has more coverage than their previous two foundations (Skin Tint and Ink Foundation) thus the name along with improved quality. I bought it immediately when one of my trusted online shop open a pre-order for this foundation. But I was really impressed on how Peripera keeps releasing product after product.
As always, it’s only available in 3 shades. I don’t think they will ever make another shades (like Etude or Clio) but I hope one day they will make a tons of other shades since they are really popular and have so many international customers worldwide.

Peripera Inklasting Cover Foundation 01 Ivory Review:
I suspect Peripera used the same bottle they used for the Skin Tint because both bottles are really similar, the only difference is they have a different lid. One is shaped like a dropper while the new one has cylinder shape but the overall packaging is 100% the same.
The bottle is a squeeze-type and I don’t like how the foundation inside keeps coming out even without me squeezing it. The nozzle has a big hole so it’s no wonder the product flowing out easily and it always make a mess so I hope if they will make another one in the future, they will make it in a pump bottle.
The texture is quite runny so I thought how can it has a full coverage if the texture alone is so thin like a water? But when I blend the swatch on my hand, the foundation turns into a more creamy texture and feels thicker. I’m not sure how it can change like that but if you see the swatch on my picture, you can definitely see how it covers my hand veins.
The shade I got is the lightest one out of the 3 shades. Both Ink Cover and Skin tint has Ivory as their lightest shade but for some reason, the shades look really different. As you can see from the swatch picture, the Ivory from Ink Cover foundation is warmer and look more yellow while the Ivory from Skin Tint is more on the neutral side. It’s weird but actually they look almost the same on my face so despite the tone difference, I have no problem at all. Both still match me perfectly.
This foundation has a satin finish, not matte and not dewy either, it’s right in between. It’s less dewy than the Skin Tint though. If the Skin Tint is good for dry skin, the Ink Cover one is good for all skin types. Even though I have an oily skin, I still prefer dewy foundations because it makes my skin looks more healthy.
Thanks to its finish, it looks pretty natural on my skin but the coverage is light to medium, not full like they claim to. I have some redness on my cheeks and some acne scars and the foundation doesn’t cover those fully unless I wear more than a layer. I don’t like applying a foundation more than a layer because I have bumpy textures on my skin and it can emphasis those parts so I’d rather wear one layer only.
For its blend-ability, it’s fairly easy to blend both with sponge and brush. As usual, I always test a new foundation with both tools on my face to compare if they have any difference or not. The result is, by using a sponge you will get less coverage but your skin will look so smooth and semi-glowy since sponge usually give your foundation more moisture (so the finish looks more dewy) and by using a brush, it gives a full coverage but you will get its original finish which is a satin finish.
For its sebum control, it is pretty decent. When I test it on the oil paper, it starts to get oily after one hour but on my face (with a very oily T-zone), the sebum start to seep out after 3 hours of wearing it without oil control primer and it won’t get oily until 6 hours of wearing if I set it with a loose powder. I don’t like loose powder that much but I have to say that loose powder is amazing to combine with this foundation.
The lasting power is superb! It doesn’t fade or blotchy at all even after I wore it all day. With some foundations, I found they can look cakey on the side of my nose but not with this one. It does sink a bit into my smile lines (I do have obvious smile lines) but it’s really rare to see a foundation that doesn’t sink into my smile lines anyway but once again, with loose powder the foundation will last twice longer.
I usually wear the powder only on oily area like on my T-zone, chin, and where I have deep fine lines so my face won’t look too matte and still have some dewy-ness.
The Ink Cover foundation doesn’t disappoint me. It performs right the same way the Skin Tint performs on my skin but with only more friendly finish for my oily skin. I would say that the Skin Tint has a tad bit better coverage but both last really well on my skin.
If you are torn between the two, just get only one because both perform exactly the same. But if you love higher coverage, get the Ink Blurring Skin Tint and if you are more natural makeup fan, try the Ink Cover instead.
