I am sure I am not the only one, but before starting Gaby's Beauty Blog, I did not own a single lipstick and I was addicted to lipglosses. Yes, I used to think lipsticks were for older ladies, but then, thanks to fellow beauty bloggers, I got into MAC lipsticks, which led me to explore drugstore - and cruelty-free - alternatives such as Revlon and Barry M, and that was all I needed to kiss sticky lipglosses goodbye. Now, I very rarely reach for lipglosses, because I had not found one that met my many criterias - I want something pigmented, non-sticky, long wearing, and moisturizing, and this just seemed like a neverending quest, until I tried PUPA Glossy Lips...
These lipglosses are like nothing that have been seen before. They are perfection - seriously. Let's start with the sleek packaging, with elegant metallic details, which houses 7ml of product - this is more than most lipglosses in my collection. Their new generation applicator is simply genius - it is very soft and flexible, coating the lips and defining their contour with no smudging - I have never applied a lipglosses so precisely and with so much ease before.
The product goes on very smoothly on the lips, and the result is an ultra shiny and lacquered effect which is absolutely non sticky, very comfortable and long lasting compared to most lipglosses I have tried - it lasts around three hours in perfect conditions (no eating or drinking and minimum talking). PUPA Glossy Lips also feels very moisturizing, thanks to the argan oil, which nourishes and protects for super soft lips - wait, what - argan oil in a lipgloss? This is new to me but it's perfect for my dry lips!
All of the shades I have tried are incredibly pigmented and bright, and they require minimal build up, except for the darkest ones, which can go on a bit patchy and uneven, but this is easily fixable thanks to the genius applicator. Oh, and let's not forget the delicious vanilla scent! I think it is safe to say that this is definitely HG material - what more can a girl want?
PUPA Glossy Lips will be available in 11 deliciously glossy colors for $20 in drugstores in April.
