Review | Pupa Princess Limited Edition Collection by Pupa Milano

Last week some of us bloggers were invited to a little do by Pupa Milano in Malta (read all about it here) and we were given the chance to try out their latest Christmas collections and gift propositions. Today I will share my opinions about the products I got to try from the Pupa Milano Pupa Princess Limited Edition Collection.

The collection revolves around a romantic and dreamy princess mood and consequently, it features products in pinky nude and minty pastel hues and sparkly finishes to contribute a sense of something special, especially for this festive time of year.

I got four pieces of the collection to try out and I was very impressed with each and every piece. Read on to find out my thoughts about them :)

I will start with the product I have used most, the Shiny Lip Color 001 Nude. I have really enjoyed wearing this lip colour because it feels so soft and hydrating on the lips and the reflective gold packaging gives it a feeling of a special treat. I like the window on the front as you can easily see the colour and the doe foot applicator makes for a perfect application of the product. The formula is very innovative as it combines the intensity of a lipstick and the shine of a lipgloss to give the lips a high gloss lacquer finish, even with this nude shade. It complements my skin tone perfectly and I have worn it both alone and combined with lipstick. I'd say that on me, this product lasts for 2 - 3 hours but my lips still feel moisturised even after it wears off. I would describe the shade as a pale toffee crème colour without any shimmer.

Next is the Diamond Eyeliner. I have shade 001 Shiny Mauve. The glitter-packed gel formula is similar to last year's Diamond Eyeliners and I am always genuinely impressed with the glitter payoff from these eyeliners. Used alone or over eyeshadow, a sparkly result is guaranteed every time! The fine-tipped brush applicator is very easy to get around and it produces a fine line of glitter effortlessly.

I have used the glitter eyeliner (and Shiny Lip Fluid) in the look below and the eyeliner lasted the whole night. I recommend using a waterproof eye makeup remover for complete removal.

Lastly, here are the nail products. I have one of the Lasting Color Nail Polishes in the shade 634 Princess Mauve as well as the Fluffy Velvet Nail Art Kit. Both nail polishes are exceptionally good and last for an average of 6 days. The packaging is the same for both as they both belong to the same collection. Like all other Pupa nail polishes, they both have a glossy finish and the formula is a dream to work with. I would describe Princess Mauve as a nice berry-toned mauve, and I dare to say it is the perfect colour to wear this season - after all, Pantone have just declared Radiant Orchid as the IT colour for 2014! The swatches below are both one coat, without topcoat.

The Fluffy Velvet Kit is composed of a fluffy powder and a coordinated polish (both, a bright Barbie pink hue), a brush and a little plastic tray. It is very easy to apply and compared to other velvet nail kits I tried, the fluffy powder is significantly softer and finer. The result is a very unique piece of textured art at your fingertips that you can easily do at home! Here is a little pictorial to guide you :)

So, that's it from my part with regards the Pupa Princess Limited Edition Collection. I have really enjoyed this collection and I recommend you head to your nearest Pupa Milano stockist and have a look at it yourself before it sells out!
