I grew up watching Powerpuff Girls a lot; they were my first heroes because they made me realize that strength knows no size, age, and gender, and if you choose to have it, you can, and you should use it wisely. I've always associated myself with Blossom because I related a lot to her tough-yet-soft personality.
When PeriPera's Powerpuff makeup collaboration came out, I literally shrieked at my laptop and knew that moment that I had to get it! Thanks to a friend who got it for me in Korea, I now have one of the best cartoon-beauty brand collaborations to date! Swatching these babies now!
POWERPUFF GIRLS X PERIPERA BLOSSOM COLLECTION IN DETAIL
PeriPera collaborated with Cartoon Network to create the Powerpuff Girls makeup collection. This limited edition collection features three capsule collections named after Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, and include a mascara, eyeshadow palette, sheet mask, lipstick, liquid lipstick, BB cushion, and nail sticker.
Upon its launch, the collection went sold out and it's been hard to get hold of the products every time Peri Pera restocked because it was THAT in demand. Good thing it was my friend's lucky day in Korea and she was able to get some including my request which is all or whatever is left of Blossom's collection. I only lack the sheet mask, eyeshadow palette, and nail stickers from the collection.
The BB Cushion featured the face of Blossom and comes with a puff decorated with a photo of Blossom. The packaging is lightweight and plastic- like, not as luxurious as the cushion compacts of Laneige, Tony Moly, or The Face Shop, but I like that it's personalized enough by PeriPera.
The BB cushion only comes in two shades: #1 Pink Ivory and #2 Pink Beige. I got Pink Beige, no choice, and it's 3 shades lighter than my skin tone. #2 Pink Beige is a light beige with a pale yellow undertone. Finish is demi- matte and coverage is light to medium.
PeriPera Ink Blackara Long Setting is a lengthening, waterproof mascara. I REALLY love the fact that it came with an eye mask! I wear eye mask to sleep and this is a welcome addition to my collection!
The mascara has a spiral wand with big spacing, which indicates that it is for lengthening, but the rich, creamy formula accidentally made it a bit volumizing too.
Ink Velvet is a liquid-mousse lipstick. Not sure if this can be used as a cheek tint though because it's too pigmented.
POWERPUFF GIRLS X PERIPERA BLOSSOM COLLECTION IN ACTION
Skin with 1 layer of Ink Cushion
#2 Pink Beige is obviously way too light for my skin tone so I bronzed my skin on top of using a shade- matching powder. It sets onto the skin fairly quickly and can cover light acne marks; use with a concealer for heavier marks.
Ink Cushion has a demi- matte finish and feels light and looks natural; it can control oil for a good 3 hours.
#6 Seizure Eye
Bright red rose shade. Finish is satin and coverage is medium to heavy.
It's my first time to try PeriPera's Ink Stick and I am impressed at the opaque coverage that makes lips appear plumper and conceals lines, and intense color payoff; truly lives up to its Ink name! It has a light fruity scent.
Seizure Eye is a lovely intense red rose; I think I'll wear this on Valentines day!
Staying power is pretty good. It does come off whenever I eat due to its satin finish, but it leaves a hint of stain that lasts.
Celeb Deep Rose
Vintage Rose with a peach undertone. Finish is soft matte and coverage is medium to heavy.
Ink Velvet is like PeriPera's liquid lipstick. It has a mousse- like texture, sets into a matte finish, and has a light fruity fragrance. It stays on longer than Ink Lipstick and doesn't dry out my lips. I love the formula! Staying power is very good: it virtually doesn't come off during wear and even if I eat or drink!
2 layers of Ink Blackara
Ink Blackara provides decent extra length and I noticed that it can make lashes look a bit thicker too, which I appreciate. This mascara is one of the best waterproof mascaras I've used! It's as tough as Make up Forever's Smoky Lash Mascara!
Overall, I like how wearable all the shades are in this collection and the fact that everything's Rose and Red- inspired. I would highly recommend the mascara, ink velvet, and ink stick! But even if the Powerpuff Girls collection is gone, I would still recommend that you try Peripera's Ink products if you get the chance because they're all long- wearing!
