I go to the gym au naturel because I don’t see the need to do the whole makeup routine only to have it get all dewy and have the look result in panda eyes. Although I don’t naturally sweat a whole lot, it’s much simpler to put on a CC cream and head out the door.
Pupa Milano came out with a sport-proof makeup and body care collection called Sport Addicted, consisting of products ranging from a pressed powder to eyeliners and lip balms to a body mist. I received the whole collection and a few perks and I decided, why not test it out?! I have nothing to lose! Keep reading to see how you can get your hands on these products in a giveaway I’m hosting!
Sport Addicted was created to allow women to wear makeup and look their best while working out. The products are formulated to be resistant to sweat and water so your look is long-lasting no matter what sport you’re engaged in.
I started off by applying the Sweat and Water Resistant Compact Powder in Warm Beige on my just-moisturized face. It provides a decent coverage and a natural finish. This colour is the only shade available in Canada (it’s the warmest shade) and it’s slightly too dark for me but I blended it as much as possible so that I didn’t look out of whack!
Next, I applied the Sweat Resistant Cream Concealer in Light Beige, one of two shades available and lightly tapped it on my under eyes. It blends super well into the skin and provides a high coverage and brightens the eyes. The second colour is Natural Beige, a slightly warmer shade, which I used this to conceal blemishes.
I wear lash extensions so I don’t wear mascara but I mustered up the courage to put this Waterproof Mascara on for the review! It comes in Intense Black, so it gives you a bold look. The brush separates each lash for a panoramic effect. You can layer on coats to give an even more intense look. Typically when I wear mascara or eyeliner, I have to constantly wipe away the running on my under eye to avoid the panda eyes look. I’m not sure why it happens (am I blinking too much??). With the Sport Addicted waterproof mascara, I don’t have to worry about that happening!
These Sweat and Water Resistant Eyeliners stay put all day long, and I’m saying All. Day. Long. Be careful not to draw your wing too long because once it’s on the skin, it won’t budge, even if you try to smudge it out for a smokey look. Like mascara, I don’t usually wear eyeliner unless it’s for a special occasion. I know that if I need one that will be long-lasting, I can count on these ones. For my gym look, I didn’t do a full wing and concentrated just on my outer lids. I wouldn’t wear any other colour on my eyes other than black, so I decided to try out the Dynamic Brown on my brows. I tried applying it on directly from the pencil, but it’s highly pigmented so I was getting a very sharp line. I used a brow brush and applied the product on to the tip of the brush and applied it that way so that I could build the colour. If you want to apply it directly from the retractable pencil, go lightly!
From the entire collection, I think the Lip Balms are my favourite. These ones are super hydrating and comfortable to wear. They come in two lovely colours, nude rose and burgundy. They’re not super pigmented and leave a shiny finish. I’m not usually one for the shiny look (I’m a matte kind of gal) but I’m ok with these ones because the colours are so subtle that you get a very natural finish.
Once you’ve completed your look, spritz some of the Makeup-Fixer on your face to lock everything in. It has a strong scent (reminds me of a body deodorant) but it’s refreshing and so lightweight. It withstood blood, sweat and tears. Ok, maybe only one of the three but it really kept my makeup in place.
Post-workout, this Refreshing Mist is meant to be sprayed on the skin to refresh and rehydrate it. It’s a natural spray enriched with watermint extract and trace elements. It doesn’t irritate the skin at all or leave any residue.

These Deodorant Wipes can be used on the body post-workout as well if you need a pat down. They’re easy to carry around to provide you with instant freshness.

Overworked your body? Feeling sore? This Refreshing and Toning Cryo-Gel is enriched with mint and eucalyptus essentials to promote a quicker recovery post-sport. It comes in a handy sachet and a clip hanger so that it’s practical to carry on-the-go. If you feel a cooling sensation on the skin, you know it’s working! If those of you who’s used Vicks Vaporub or Tiger Bomb? It smells and has the same effect as those!
