Many weeks ago, I’ve attended my first PUPA event to preview their latest products – Mascara VAMP!, LUMINYS TOUCH Highlighter and LUMINYS SILK Eyeshadow.
The cosy event was held at the posh Senso Ristorante and Bar @ Club Street.
What first caught my attention upon reaching the restaurant was a range of eye colors, face blushes and powders displayed sparely on the long dining table.
The bar counter behind the long table was nicely displayed with a range of body and face enhancers. PUPA Milano is proud to be one of the first to introduce Body Enhancers.
Got excited to see a cosmetic counter display with a wide range of eye, cheek and lip colors at the event.
Mascara VAMP! – S$35
You can now create a superstar eyes in just few seconds with revolutionary Mascara VAMP!. It gives the exaggerated lashes and oversized volume for a show-stopping look, just like false eyelashes without the hassle.
Formulated with PUPA exclusive formula that includes a special mix of waxes and Vamp! Full Polymer. Special mix of waxes include vegetable, natural and synthetic waxes, give an extra rich and creamy texture with high structure. The Vamp! Full Polymer, a film forming agent, helps prolongs hold with no smudging and it keeps lashes smooth and flexible.
The special shape of the wand enables you to collect a greater amount of mascara on its central part, to get maximum product release, for exaggerated and absolutely enhanced lashes. The rounded tip helps to reach even the shortest and most difficult lashes. Use it vertically to give that final styling touch.
