Love wearing lipstick, hate how your favourite colour fades the second you take a sip of coffee, talk your way through a Teams meeting or smile through the receiving line of your cousin’s wedding? Us too. It’s why we’ve been swiping PUPA’s Vamp! Extreme Colour Lipstick Spectacular Lips Plumping Treatment since it made its cosmetics debut last month. And we’re not mad about it at all.
The Italian brand has specially crafted its new line of lipsticks with Japanese seaweed, an active volumizer otherwise known as wakame that provides instant volume to our lips in just one swipe. Paired with a gel-based and hydrating formula, the lippie’s hyperpigmented colour appears immediately and vibrantly, with long-lasting, colourful effects.
But possibly our favourite part is Vamp!’s eight brand new shades. From “Rose Wood,” “Light Chestnut,” “Warm Nude,” and “Tea Rose,” to “60’s Dream,” “Ruby Red,” “Iconic Red,” and our personal pick, “Intense Red,” we’ve got a hue for every outfit, moment and mood. So now, our general frustration isn’t about whether or not our colour of choice will make its mark, but rather we now struggle with what colour to wear on any given day.
