It's becoming really ridiculous how many brands are coming out with their own version of liquid lipsticks, like how do I keep up???!!!! I'm always on the look out for the best liquid lipsticks and I want to try every single one out there but it's becoming impossible. But that being said, I do want to try out as much of them as I can! When I heard that Pupa Milano released liquid lipsticks a few months ago, I was really intrigued and wanted to know what they would be like. So when my stepdad was going to Italy I asked him to bring me home two shades of these Matt Lip Fluids.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this brand, Pupa is an Italian cosmetics brand. You can get it at the drugstore in The Netherlands but here in Belgium it's very hard to find. I have tried some of their products in the past and I must admit, there wasn't one product that I disliked from them. Overall, the quality is really great and they always have amazing packaging. They are a little bit more expensive than for example Catrice, I would compare their prices to L'Oréal or Maybelline.
The packaging is super slim and also rather small for a liquid lipstick. It comes in a luxurious silver tube that has a little see-through lip, that way you get a look at what the lipstick actually looks like. There's also a color indication on the bottom. One thing I really don't like with Pupa is that they always number their shades but the name is never on the actual product. I always have to go to their website to find out what the shades are actually called like.
The Matt Lip Fluid comes in 12 different shades, ranging from neutrals to pinks and reds.
More on the Matt Lip Fluid:
I’m Matt Lip Fluid is a liquid lipstick with a very sensorial texture like you have never tried before! Lightweight and very fine, it holds on to lips flawlessly for a long time, revealing pure and intense color with a matt and velvet finish. The combination between the innovative fluid formula and the flocked, high definition applicator guarantees a precise application for lips that are perfectly redefined.
Natural nude (11) is a dark nude with a terracotta/brown undertone. This is one of those darker nudes that would look amazing on so many different skin-tones.
Sable Brown (13) is a dusty mauve with brown undertones. I think this is a shade that suits my skin-tone beautifully, OBSESSED!
Sable Brown does dry down to a completely matte finish as well, I just wasn't patient enough to wait haha!
As you can see these have amazing pigmentation and color pay-off! I also really love the applicator, it has a bend in it which makes it super easy to apply these. The formula does transfer when I drink or eat something, so you definitely have to reapply these afterwords. I would say they stay on the lips for about 4-5 hours, which isn't the longest for a liquid lipsticks but they are really comfortable to wear. I guess you give a little, you get a little.
These liquid lippies are formulated without parabens and are dermatologically tested. They have a subtle scent to them, which doesn't linger on the lips.
I think these are some of the best liquid lipsticks I have tried in a really long time! They dry down matte and the shades are beautiful. They are very comfortable to wear, but the only downside is that they transfer a little bit and that they aren't the most long-lasting ones I have tried.
The Pupa I'm Matt Lip Fluids are available online here and retail for €17,75 each (4 ml). It is a little bit pricey but in my opinion, they're really worth it!
