Pupa Milano Collection Privée Limited Edition

I think we can all agree that winter is a chicer season when it comes to dressing up and of course, makeup is no exception. This year's proposition from Pupa Milano comes in the form of sophisticated browns and burgundies with hints of red - classic colours that never go out of fashion and can always be re-invented. This is the Collection Privée Limited Edition.

Attention to detail is synonymous with Pupa Milano products and this collection boasts beautiful metallic packaging with a rich crocodile-embossed motif on the boxes and some of the products. I received two products from this collection - the Highlighter and the Made to Last Lip Duo 013. I have used both products on multiple occasions and now, here are my thoughts on them.

Of course I have already said that the packaging is to die for! Just look at those metallic details and the highlighter is definitely the star piece in this collection so let's talk about it first. The colour is a gorgeous champagne gold with a subtle pink undertone. I would go as far and say it is a muted rose gold. It's kind of a pity to have to use it and I always try not to pick too much product so I can enjoy the crocodile skin effect for longer; not that you need a lot of this highlighter to achieve a megawatt result anyway! I love the subtle shimmer effect of this highlighter, making it suitable for daytime use and I can easily build up the intensity for night time! Retail price is €17.50 and is available in the shade 001.

The next product is the Made to Last Lip Duo in the shade 013 Opulent Red. I was elated to see this colour in my press pack for red lipstick is something I reach for very often. The product comes with a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish on one side and a glossy top coat at the other end. I like to line my lips with a lip pencil before colour application, and then proceed to apply the liquid lip colour, allow it a couple of seconds to dry completely and then apply the glossy top coat. I am very happy with this product for a number of reasons - firstly, the pigmentation is insane! Just one coat and you have even colour all around; secondly, once dry, it doesn't budge; thirdly, the colour doesn't transfer onto the glossy topcoat brush and lastly, it lasts for ages! You cannot use it as a matte lip colour though because it feels a little tacky and the gloss helps to eliminate that sticky feeling. Retail price is €11.95 and is available in two different shades.

I really enjoy combining these two products from the Collection Privée Limited Edition with the Pupa Duo Eyes Twist-Up 002 Safari Khaki (part of the summer limited edition Savanna - €12.80) which is a double-ended eye product - a metallic khaki eyeshadow on one end and a blackened khaki liner on the other. This is another exceptional product from the Pupa makeup line which is characterised with high pigmentation and extremely good lasting power. All in all, I think the Pupa Collection Privée is appealing to everyone with its classic colours yet modern look.
