Perry and Healy put on 199 runs, with the Stars unable to get a single wicket in their 20 overs.
Healy scored her third WBBL century, finishing on 106* after three consecutive boundaries in the final over.
As for Perry, who was celebrating her 29th birthday, she fell just short of a century but still put on an amazing innings of 87*.

The Sixers and Perry also held the previous record, when she combined for a 150-run stand with Ash Gardiner against the Stars in December 2017.
The Sixers' 0/199 was also the third-largest total in WBBL history.
The 199-run partnership would also catapult them straight to the top of the BBL records list, beating Rob Quiney and Luke Wright's 172-run stand against the Hobart Hurricanes in 2012.
There was nothing the Stars could do to stop the onslaught with Perry and Healy finding the boundary 29 times in the innings.
That included four sixes from Healy who was at her dominant best at the WACA.
