PUPA: Diva's Rouge Lipstick


Here’s the other half of Italian brand PUPA´s Perfect Match Kit that I showed in my previous post. It’s a lipstick called Diva’s Rouge and, of course, in the shade Euphoria Red. Well, actually, on the lipstick packaging, the shade is just a number: 14. I, for one, would like to call it tomato red, just like for the accompanying Lasting Color nail polish. The silver casing looks chic with the red trimming, don’t you think?



According to PUPA (as per the packaging):
Colour Intense Lipstick.
Absolute Cover.
Instantly perfect colour release for full, sensual lips with just one stroke.
Creamy, extra-rich, feel-good texture.


I’ll cut to the chase and mention that what PUPA says is quite true. It is pigment-rich, delivering fantastic colour intensity. I love how it applies – smooth and creamy. There are not many brands of lipsticks that I can use without a lipbalm base. I tried applying Diva’s Rouge on my bare lips and my lips fared quite well. To a certain degree, it did melt into the lips. My lips felt all right for the first couple of hours but as the moisturising effect wore off, I could feel my lips shriveling a bit. Well, don’t mind me and my chronically dry lips, ladies! I think if your lips can take just about any XYZ lipstick on the market, then Diva’s Rouge would work fine for you.


It lasts for a good few hours – four to five in my case. There is colour transfer on the cup, but that’s usual.

Unfortunately, parabens are on the list, for those of you who do mind.

So, is it a ‘perfect match’? I say yes.


Note: This Perfect Match Kit was my own purchase. It was on offer for €14.95.

Enough tomato reds for now. I promise it will be something else next!

@Get Gawjus!
Thanks, Shifa! :)

@Toesthattwinkle
Thank you! I find it interesting that PUPA came out with these matching colour sets. It doesn't hurt either that the lipstick and nail polish come with that cute silver pouch. :D

@Mara
This lipstick colour is gorgeous and I love it that it wasn't overly drying like some from other brands. :)

@alvira
Haha, bright it is! Hmm, you would be able to find dupes for this colour, I'm sure. :)

@raey
Ooh, I'm glad I didn't make you wait too long! Thanks, I'm so pleased you like this, raey. :)

@KTee
Thanks, KTee! It's a great set, me thinks. A full-size lipstick and a little bottle of nail polish in a matching colour in a very reflective silver pouch. What's not to like, huh? :D

@albastrikmik
It's a perfect match! :D

@LipGlossGossip
I'm so glad this shade of red is to your liking. :)

@Dina
Thank you, Dina! :)

@Cynthia
Thanks. I'm sure you'd have no problems finding a colour like this. Hmmm, I don't know if a shade like hot pink would suit my skin tone, but grape might work on me. :)
