Today I will be reviewing Peripera’s Heart Glow Stick in Pink Beam, which is from their Heart Glow collection! I bought this on a whim during Jolse’s 15% off event, and since highlighting and contouring has become a lot more popular lately. Although those methods of accentuating features have been commonly practiced, I feel as if it has become a lot more prominent over the course of the year- noticeably with all the contour palettes that have come out.
So I’ve seen many people review Peripera’s products, and I’ve always thought the packaging was on point and adorable! The artwork on the boxes give it that artsy factor and some originality. I love how the box is shaped because the design ties it together and makes it look like a house! The creative packaging adds to the overall appeal of the product. All of the information is in Hangul, so I don’t know what it says. But presumably their ingredients aren’t listed because of how little text there is, and it’s simply a description of what the product does and how to use it.
The adorable infographic shows you where to apply it based on your face shape, which is really helpful for mapping out where to place the highlight!
It comes with a small cap on the inside to protect the stick.It is lightly scented, but I’m unsure how to describe it LOL. It’s not really floral, nor is it fruity… but fresh? I feel as if scents are generally categorized into floral or fruity, or just luxurious (ie. YSL and Chanel products kind of smell like they came from an expensive store, or their stores respectively). In my opinion, it has a nice scent though~
It feels cool to touch, which doesn’t really bare any weighting on the quality. I’ve tried applying this by swiping it on my face, but I don’t think that works too well since it pulls on my skin. It is not smooth in texture like the NARS multiple, so it does not glide-on easily. I think the best way to apply it is to dab it on, that way you don’t pull on your skin. I think it’s great for a really subtle highlight, but I don’t think it works well as a strong highlight. I prefer to build it up, rather than pack it on and then blend it out. It really all comes down to how you prefer to do your highlighting, but starting off small and adding more is usually the safer route.
It does not blend out easily, so it’s hard to diminish harsh lines if you apply it too heavily. The finish doesn’t appear as high quality dewy effect like BB creams, cream blushers, etc., but more so like a fine, powdery finish. On the upside, it does not emphasize any flakiness or dry patches, which can happen with some of these products.
