Name: Miss Pupa Lipstick in Paradise
From Pupa’s website:
On the lips, an extraordinary crystal effect, an incredible, semi-transparent wet finish and comfort without compare.
What I liked:
– subtle but buildable colour payoff
– beautiful wet finish
– smooth and moisturizing texture
– pretty packaging
What I didn’t like:
– average staying power
– packaging is not very practical
Coral lips are a must for summer. They are flattering on most skintones, beautifully complement a (fake) tan, and give a bright pop of colour to your face. If you’re hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, why not start with something sheer and juicy, like Miss Pupa Lipstick in Paradise?
Paradise is a subtle coral infused with gold shimmers. Rather than making you look like a disco ball, the lipstick has a glossy and slick wet finish that just screams summer. The shimmers don’t even make the texture gritty. On the contrary, it’s smooth and creamy, and glides so easily on the lips, keeping them soft and moisturized for a couple of hours.
Paradise has a semi-transparent colour payoff. It’s not so sheer that you can hardly see the colour, but it’s never gonna become opaque and vivid, no matters how many layers you apply. It’s just a delicate, juicy colour that subtly brightens up the face. Perfect for the daytime, you can even wear it at the beach.
On my lips, Paradise doesn’t last that long. After a couple of hours, it has disappeared completely. If you eat, drink, or kiss it lasts even less. Even just a quick snack will make it fade fast, forcing you to reapply it again. It’s a bummer, but then most lipstick lasts just a couple of hours on my lips.
Like the finish, the packaging is slick and shiny too. It looks very pretty and professional, but, if you own more than one shade, not very practical. That’s because the only way to figure out what the colour inside is is to check the bottom of the tube. It’s impossible to tell at a glance, which is quite annoying!
