Accidentally fell upon a Korean marketplace in Anaheim while looking for a record store. Apparently, all of them are seriously gone, by the way. We tried to get to two different record stores and both were no more. In this market, I found a cosmetic counter that carried this brand that I personally have never heard of called Peripera. Honestly, I chose this based on the cute packaging. I’m kind of an easy sell on cute stuff.

The tint is very watery, and it’s kind of annoying because in my case, it seeped into my mouth and feathered a bit on my upper lip. It tastes icky, but not enough to never wear it again. However, the tint dries quickly and stays on well. It also shows up great, as you can see in the photo above. The lower left is without any product on my lips, and the lower right is with just the stain on.

I like a more bold lip, so I intend to use this stain under some red liner and lipstick for a cherry red lip. I do like how the stain sets and brings a nice, soft red color to my lips. Underneath a balm, it looks like I have naturally rose-colored lips, like so much Snow White.

I found this product for $10. You can get it on eBay from $7-$12.

[Clothing] Snow White Sheer Tights

I have recently purchased over $350 worth of Disney merchandise from Hot Topic’s website in the past three weeks. Obviously, after such a big haul, they emailed me a standard message to review the items for the website, which I was actually more interested in doing than most people would be. Regardless of my excitement, the email links didn’t work, and I was left feeling slightly disappointed. Then I realized, I have my own blog/website/place to review things that I’ve purchased! I knew this place would come in handy!

Because I bought so much stuff, and some of it hasn’t arrived yet, I will have to do these reviews in installments. Today I will start with the Snow White Sheer Tights.

A sweet Snow White image split between tights. Subtle, but still a conversation starter.

The image of Snow White is under the knees, and though you think it would almost go unnoticed, it doesn’t. Twice on the bus I was asked if the image was a tattoo, and all day long people would comment on them as I walked by. The cute factor of these is at least a 10, while the quality is more of a 7. Because they are sheer tights, they are capable of being easily ripped or torn, especially if you have long nails, didn’t shave your legs and have stubble, or are not extremely careful when walking by things like bushes, walls or rocks. It is a fun statement piece that gets a lot of attention, but once they tear, they’re pretty much done. I recommend buying two pairs, just in case. Comfortable fit, and they really don’t sag as you wear them all day. I’m 5’7″ and got the size M/L and they fit perfect. Available at Hot Topic.

I would suggest pairing this with a nice solid colored dress, such as black, red or blue. You definitely want the attention on the tights; They’re just so cute.

(TIP: If you do make a small tear, use clear nail polish over it to prevent it from tearing more!)
