Outside the window, snow is falling in flakes, and they sent me the spring collection “PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY”! Spring say? No, you haven’t heard.
The only hope is that the collection will warm with the warmth of its quality, and I will finally be able to take off the woolen socks in which I am sitting right now and scribbling this text. But after the first test drive, it collapsed …
After the launch of the “Pupa Make up Stories” palettes, I was not ready for a new collection under the slogan “so-so …”
Pupa Miilano Unexpected Beauty Makeup Spring 2019 Collection is a shining eye shadow, highlighter, lip gloss, scrub and nail polishes.
Who do we start with? Let’s go with the shadows.
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Eyeshadow Highlights & Top Coat.
It’s true – the eyeshadow is shining and works like a top coat.
Do not buy them if you want classic eyeshadow. You will be shocked when a wet brush does not want to “take” them, and your finger starts to slide off at the first attempt to pick up shadows.
It’s difficult with them. We’ll have to use a backing. A regular base won’t take. Wet application will not make the process easier. Matte lipstick, dry fingers and impressive motion shadows will save you! It will take several layers to achieve this result:
By colors the following:
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Eyeshadow # 01 Golden Chameleon
Good. Beautiful to madness. The finish resembles MAC Old Gold Pigment loose pigments. Of all the three, it is the most obvious color to the eye.
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Eyeshadow # 02 Purple Chameleon
About nothing. I tried to apply it in 3-4 layers, it turns out an indistinct color. Only glitters sparkle. Swatch is misleading.
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Eyeshadow # 03 Chameleon Green
Not bad. In tandem with # 01 it works great: they mix with each other and give a mirror finish.
Now let’s go back a year: remember the Natasha Denona Duo Chrome Top Coat collection? Similar three colors, all chameleons, but in appearance cream mousse.
It was Natasha Denona’s best decision and Pupa’s worst. So to steam up with the application of a top coating, because it is dry in texture, well, I really don’t want to. Top chip – applied on top and forgot. It won’t work with these.
Price: 955 rub.
Highlighter PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Hightlighter
Packaging agony! You can’t argue with that.
Not a bad version of the highlighter because of the neutral shade. He does not commit to anything. The color of champagne or whatever … The texture is not loose, not dusty or crumble.
Collected with any brush: from goat to squirrel.
Small sparkles are present if you take a magnifying glass. It is difficult to see them without it.
You cannot call a silky highlighter, so the coating does not look like a thin veil. It is visible and readable on the face.
Price: 1.370 RUB
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Lip Scrub
Misunderstanding of the collection.
Three crystals, read: regular sugar for one click? Are you serious!
A sticky consistency in which sugar sticks and somehow tries to do its job. It doesn’t work that I take the brochure and re-read it again, suddenly I was mistaken:
“Lip scrub exfoliates dead cells, leaving the surface of the lips soft, renewed, without greasy marks.”
In short, you will be in the store and test this scrub on your hand for fun! Then we’ll laugh together
Price: 840 rub.
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Shiny Lip Gloss
Another novelty is in question. Colors from the set “Little Fairy”, as well as nail polishes. Why does Pupa prefer this particular palette in almost every collection ?!
Let’s solve it together and try to look at PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Shiny Lip Gloss through their eyes.
# 01 Copper pink chameleon
# 02 Chameleon magenta
# 03 Pink-blue chameleon
All three are applied unevenly. You have to align the previous layer with a sponge, which the first erases after itself. Vicious circle.
What to do? Apply two light shine in a very thin layer, and the third can be thicker, there is more pigment in it.
Price: 900 rub.
PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY Nail Polish
One of the varnishes was caught with a defective brush. It is crookedly cut, which makes it almost impossible to form a neat semicircle near the cuticle. The second copy is fine.
Colors for an amateur. I’m not there among them. The texture is translucent. We apply in two, or better in three layers.
Price: 425 rub.
# 01 Chameleon magenta
# 02 Chameleon rose gold
The spring collection PUPA Unexpected BEAUTY was unexpected for me in all respects: very ordinary glitter colors, mediocre highlighter texture, difficult to apply shadows and varnishes for children in shades
