Korean Highlighter Stick and Tinted Sheer Lipstick Review

Hi guys, I’m back again!

So a very long time ago Memebox kindly sent me two more of their awesome K-Beauty products for me to review and I went out of town and lost track of things. I feel really bad about it, but here is the long overdue review!

First we have the VirginKiss Tinted Lip by Clio. This is essentially like the texture of one of those lipstain pencils if you’re familiar with them, but in lipstick form (which is kind of more convenient, IMO since the pencils seem overly large).

This shade is an extremely bold orange-coral and it’s a nice balance between bold color and sheer coverage. The color is somehow vibrant and sheer at the same time. It goes on very bright right away, and no amount of layering seems to change the look. What I mean is you can layer and layer it on and it never cakes up, it just keeps the exact same consistency and shade. It feels like it’s just integrating into your lips somehow. It’s not creamy like a lipstick, it’s more of a solid stain product. It almost feels like nothing is transfering to your lips, yet it leaves a bright, long lasting stain behind. I think it’s pretty cool!

Next is the PeriPera Heart Glow Stick which is a golden cream highlighter in stick form.

I’m not sure if this shade will work on all complexions, but for warm to neutral complexions it blends in really well. I was scared about how intense it looks in the stick, but it sheers out nicely! I was impressed with the construction of the product because the stick itself seems really sturdy and has a second cap that you have to pull off after you take off the outer cap, which keeps it extra airtight so it won’t dry out on you. That seems very thoughtfully designed, right? I’ve been getting a lot of use out of this lately when I need to perk up my complexion on the way out the door! Sometimes a quick fix makes a big difference.

Here’s a swatch of it before blending, next to the VirginKiss swatch:

I would have posted a picture of it sheered out the way you’d actually wear it, but it’s subtle enough that it wasn’t picking up for my camera. Which is how I like my makeup to act.

And check out this packaging. Outrageously cute, right?

So hopefully I’ll get back into blogging more regularly soon! I need hobbies outside of doing law related stuff or I will go crazy. I also have a few more old backlogged reviews that will hopefully be coming up this week. Talk soon! 🙂
