Yesterday I received a PR Package from Pupa Milano’s importers in Malta with some new products from the Bronze Fever Collection. I immediately ripped it open to see what I got and swatched everything (see below).
I got the Kajal Liner in 003 Nude, the Made to Last waterproof eyeshadow stick in 015 and the Balmy Oil in 004.
This morning I used all these products together and I’ve been wearing this makeup look throughout the day.
I’ll give you the run down on each of these products starting with the Kajal Liner in 003 Nude. I used this liner in my top and bottom waterlines. This is very soft and pigmented and it was great for brightening up my eyes. The product itself worked perfectly. I never used a Kajal liner in this shape before. It doesn’t twist up and all of the product is exposed when the cap is removed. While using this I was wondering what this is going to be like when I use up more of it. Will it be very thick and blunt when I get to the end? Will it get dry because it’s exposed? I think if it was in a regular pencil form it would also be better for hygene but the product itself is really excellent.
The next product I tried is the Made to Last Shadow stick. This does precisely what it says it does and I’m super impressed with it. To use this I first put a transition shadow in my crease and then I applied this shadow stick directly to my lid and blended it out with my fingers. So far I’ve been wearing it for 10 hours in the hot Malta climate and I have absolutely no signs of fading or creasing. When I swatched it on my hand yesterday it was difficult to remove the swatch so this certainly meets its made to last claim! The colour I got is 015 and it’s a light maroon with warm, brown undertones. This shadow stick also comes with a sharpener at the end and this is really excellent because if this needs sharpening I don’t have to fumble around in my makeup drawer to find my makeup sharpener (yes, that’s always a thing when one of my pencils needs sharpening). This product gets two thumbs up, five stars and my highest recommendation. I want all of the shades!
Finally the Balmy Oil. This is a lip balm that looks like a lip gloss, feels like a balm and has a slight tint of colour. This is STUNNING and another two thumbs up, five stars and my highest recommendation. It feels very comfortable on the lips, it has a medium to thick texture that stays put on the lips until you remove it (or eat or whatever), it doesn’t settle into the lines on my lips and the thick texture and glossy finish actually make my lips look a bit plumper than they actually are. The slight wash of colour is gorgeous. What really impressed me about this product is that I removed it about 5 hours ago to have lunch and until now my lips are feeling very hydrated and well nourished. I don’t think I’ve ever worn a lip balm that left my lips feeling so nourished for this many hours after I’ve removed it. As for wear time, this isn’t designed as a long wearing product but it didn’t budge until I removed it myself. I hate eating with creamy or balmy products on my lips.
Check out the rest of the Pupa Milano Bronze Fever Collection on their website. I’m really intrigued about that face and body highlight product.
