Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount Review and Swatches

Not quite a lip gloss, lipstick or lip balm, Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount ($24) is something like a beautifying lip treatment.

Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount includes loads of great ingredients like peptides, sodium hyaluronate, jojoba oil, and antioxidants to keep your lips moisturized, soft, and wrinkle-free. However, something in this product gives it a slightly gritty texture. The product description doesn't mention exfoliation, but I feel like there is some sloughing going on whether Per-Fekt intends it to or not! Some people might not like this, but I'm not bothered. I find that the ingredients and texture work together to leave my lips extra smooth when I wear Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount. Plus, it has a yummy fresh spearmint scent and taste.

Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount is a medium lavender pink shade. It looks very bright and pigmented when swatched but is easy to blend out for a sheer wash of color. I think this could be a cute everyday lip color for a cool-toned person.

Unfortunately, I don't get very good wear time with Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount. It fades after about two hours and is almost invisible after three. Your lips will be super soft, at least.

Though it's called a lip gel, this product has a thin, water-y texture that isn't very gel-like. It's unusual for a lip product but not necessarily in a bad way. There is absolutely no stickiness, which is definitely a plus. On the other hand, the thin texture makes it difficult to apply with precision, even though slanted applicators are usually easy to use. But just look at how cute this one is!

Bottom Line: Per-Fekt Beauty Lip Perfection Gel in Paramount is not your ordinary lip product. It's full of quality lip-treating ingredients wrapped up in a thin, watery texture that is neither lip gloss nor lip balm. It has a pretty, punchy color that will flatter cool-toned complexions. This product does have some flaws, including messy application and short wear time.

  2. I'm usually a big fan of Perfekt products (although price, not so much) but this is kind of underwhelming

    1. I really love the Skin Perfection Gel! I agree that this isn't as impressive.
