Pupa Milano always keep surprising me with their season collections and their summer collection is no exception. Being that world cup was held in Brazil, it had to be inspired by its traditions and tropical colours. The collection is called Viva Carioca and it consists of some colourful Vamp, Duo eye-shadow, chubby glosses, like a doll luminys blushers, lasting colour gel duo and long lasting eyeliner.
If I could have the entire collection, believe me I would be a happy girl. The colours are simply beautiful, tropical, bold but still very feminine. I’ve been lucky enough to get a sample of the Long lasting Eyeliner in 004 Electric Green. Now something I want to mention before I continue with my review is that even though I got this product for free, my opinions about the product is solely mine. I am very honest in my reviews, so if I don’t like a product I am not going to lie and say how much I love it.
So back to the eyeliner, something which I loved instantly as I swatched it on my hand, is the high pigmentation of the colour. Other than that I was impressed by how long it lasted on me, it took me a while to remove as well. Something I am not too fond of is the shimmery particles, I would have preferred if it was just a strong simple colour without the shimmer.
With regards to the packaging, being that I don’t have the actual one I truly cannot comment on that, however I do like the soft felt tip of the brush. These type of brushes are my favourite, because you can apply the liner pretty well and easily.
Apart from all that, all of their products are low risk of allergies, ophthalmologist tested, paraben and fragrance free. If green is not your colour there a another 3 colours the 001 Flashes bronzer,002 Exotic Purple, and 003 Parrot blue
· Great pigmentation
· Long lasting
· Nice brush, easy application
· Low risk of allergies, ophthalmologist tested, paraben and fragrance free
- Not too fond of the shimmer particles, I could do without them
Will I ever buy this product again? I might, I always wanted to try coloured eyeliners and now that I have I am thinking of getting more.
Do I recommend it? For sure, It is very pigmented for a coloured eyeliner, and very long lasting, so give it a shot. But if you don’t like shimmer eyeliners then go for something else.
Let me know if you tried their new collection out, love to get your opinion. The Pupa Viva Carioca Collection is found in most Pharmacies around Malta and Gozo.
