First things first, when you apply lipstick, especially lip gloss and lip tints, always do a lip scrub first and apply a thin layer of lip balm, or lip treatment (like the Hanalei Lip Treatment). This makes lip gloss, lip tint, and matte lippies less drying and will not go into the creases of your lips. This will also give your lips a more supple look.
Anyway, the Peripera's ink moist are lip tints that will last for hours, and even when the layers of color has been cleansed off, there is still that stain that stays on your lips for another 24 hours. Now, if you swatch this, like I did in my photo below, you will have a bright pink line stain for a good day or so, but will eventually wash off (in baths, showers and washing dishes). In that sense, I like calling this, despite the watery consistency, Peripera INK STAIN, rather than moist. Don't get me wrong, it is moist, it stays moist for a good hour or two, so fair warning, try not to touch your lips or drink directly into a cup/glass/tumbler (you know what I mean). As I mentioned, some of the color is difficult to wash off completely, and even more difficult to wash off your skin.
As for the color, it super pigmented and will stay so as long as you do not eat anything oily and hot. Though, some of the color does come off when you eat ice cream, but not enough to notice. When I do eat something, like ramen, a lot of the layered color does come off, but the stain remains. I keep another color for darker gradient look, when that happens, which usually only happens once in a day. Mostly after a meal.
Going back to my photo below, the first is the top view of the bottle and you can see how short the wand is, so application is easier for me as I have smaller hands. The second photo is the semi-side view of the bottle, and the the wand. You can see how thin and how long the applicator is. The last photo are the swatches, and you can also see how small the bottle is compared to my small hands, which look weirdly large in this photo. Also, the first swatch is one layer has been dabbed with my finger, like you would if you wanted a gradient lip color, and the second swatch has two layers and dried a tad longer than the first. It also stayed moist (with a bit of shine) more than the first, as I did not dab this into my skin.
So with that being said, I know a lot of people are not comfortable with lip color staining their lips for more than 24 hours, and have given this a 4 or less rating, but I like this lip product. I like using this when I go to parties at night, so that tne next day that left over stain looks more natural. A plus in my opinions, because I can take a morning selfie and say "I woke up like this". Ha!
