Product Review: Pupa Luminys Baked Eyeshadow
Name: Luminys Baked Eyeshadow
From Pupa’s website:
Luminys is a baked eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry; you can choose the intensity you prefer.
Used dry, it is delicate and luminous; used wet, it is intense and pearly.
Innovative oven-baking technology releases all the properties of the colour to make it even more sparkling and luminous and ensure maximum, long-lasting hold when applied.
What I liked:
– goes on smoothly
– lasts all day
– doesn’t crease
– great color payoff
What I didn’t like:
– the ingredients
– the packaging
Pupa Luminys eyeshadow is available in 12 beautiful shades. I have an aqua-greenish one with shimmers in it. It has a creamy consistency and can be used dry if you want a sheer and glowy look, or wet if you want a more intense color. Either way, it goes on smoothly and the color payoff is great. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day.
I don’t really like the packaging very much. It has an oval shape and is quite clanky but also quite big so it will last for a long time. It also contains a sponge applicator, but I have never used it as I prefer to use brushes.
However I don’t really like the ingredients in this product. It contains Isopropyl Myristate which is highly comedogenic and Imidazolidinyl Urea which, as I mentioned in my previous post, can release formaldehyde. It is the last ingredient on the list, meaning it was used in very small quantities, but I don’t really wanna put anything on my body that releases formaldehyde so this is going straight into the bin.
This eyeshadow can be used dry for a delicate look or wet if you want a more intense color. It goes on smoothly, doesn’t crease, lasts all day and the color payoff is great. However, it contains comedogenic and formaldehyde-releasing ingredients.
