Looking at the adorable picture above, you might think "what does this flowery tweed little monster have to do with makeup?" Indeed, at first sight it appears to be nothing more than a quirky, smiley stuffed animal- which is always alright by me. But... if you tug on her little red feet...
Oh look! Flowery legs! Still wondering what this has to do with makeup? Well, check this out:
Amazing! Housed inside her plush, monster innards is a feminine and versatile makeup palette! Created by the Italian makeup brand Pupa, which can be found at http://www.pupa.it/eng/ , this Pupa Puppet is both adorable and functional. It (she?) was given to me by a kind and generous friend who knew that I couldn't resist something so simultaneously cute and makeup-filled. Thanks Sarah!
The palette contains four eyeshadows, four lip glosses, and a blush, all in earthy shades of pink, peach and brown. Here's a closeup of it:
And here is a closeup of each side of the palette:
I haven't tested out any of the shades yet (I'm almost afraid to because everything is so pretty!), so I can't speak to the specific quality of the makeup. The quality is almost irrelevant, however, because the true joy of this product lies in its quirky, unique, and completely precious packaging. I smile every time I see it! It really provides new meaning to the phrase "playing with makeup". Perhaps a puppet show is in order?
Thanks for reading! :)
