Pupa Milano – Vamp Cream Eyeshadow 002

Today I will review another Pupa Milano product from the Pupa Princess Limited edition. This time it’s their creamy eyeshadow in 002 shiny green. It  comes in this elegant small round jar with a plastic lid. I am simply in love with it’s creamy texture, I don’t usually go for cream eye-shadow because they are usually a bit sticky and  tend to fade away after a while or else leave visible lines.  However the texture is very nice and not sticky, and it still looks pretty good after a few hours without any lines. This eyeshadow retails for €9.75 which is neither cheap nor expensive, however I do think is good value for money. I have been using it for a while now and it’s still as good as new.

I simply love using my fingers to apply this eye-shadow, however it can still be used easily with a brush.  What I love doing with this shadow is apply it on the inner corner of the eyes or else on the middle of the lid, it creates such a nice effect. Do check my make-up look called Winter blues, for which I used this lovely shadow.

Pros:

  • Great sturdy packaging
  • Beautiful pearl/metallic colour, very much in vogue nowadays
  • Creamy texture and doesn’t leave any visible lines
  • Long lasting
  • Good value for money

Cons:

  • There is nothing in particular that I don’t like about this shadow, it simply delivers

If you are interested in buying this shadow, hurry up as this is a limited edition. However I am sure you will be able to find it in leading pharmacies around Malta, Italy and various other countries around Europe.  Let me know what you think about this product if you ever tried it, by commenting down below. Show some love my liking my Facebook or  following me through e-mail.

Will I ever buy this product again? Probably I love it’s metallic and pearl texture, you can create some interesting looks with it.

Do I recommend it? Definitely, what you see is exactly what you get with this shadow.

NYX – Trio Eyeshadow TS11-Orange/Copper/Peach

T1

A few months back, I was given this NYX Trio Eyeshadow palette to try out. These are pretty inexpensive and the colour selections they have are amazing.  I have the palette in Orange/Copper and Orange/Peach, which are basically copper selection of colours. These colours are perfect to use for everyday make up or even as a mid tone colour to use with other colours. The eyeshadow are housed in a slim black plastic casing and looks very similar to high brands packaging. It has also a small mirror and applicator, the applicator sponge looks pretty well, I still however prefer to use brushes but it’s still great to have when travelling.

For the colours, most of the series runs from light (highlight), mid (crease), and dark (outer crease) however my palette seems to have oddly paired shades, because the darkest shade is a bit too light to apply on the crease.  The shadows are however very soft and powdery and have medium pigmentation, and looks better with a eyeshadow base underneath.

T4Pros:

  • Lovely sleek packaging with mirror and applicator
  • Good applicator
  • Good pigmentation, it will last for a good 4 to 5 hours.
  • Soft and powdery
  • Easy to apply and blendable
  • Not to shimmery, you can easily wear it for everyday to work
  • Inexpensive, it only retail for …

Cons:

  • This isn’t really a con but so you know, some trio are definitely better than other for colour payoff, so look up reviews or else check them out yourself at the NYX store at Sliema.

Will I ever buy this product again? It is a probability however being that I love eye-shadows, I would go for bigger palettes but for someone that is a less make up geek than me, these would be perfect.

Do I recommend it? I do recommend these palettes, they are good quolity and perfect for travelling and also inexpensive
