Like you, I am always on the lookout for new beauty products and companies to try out. Lately, I've been seeing fun looking products from Napoleon Perdis at my local Ulta and I was lucky enough to get some samples from the company to try out.
A little background first: Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics comes from Australia and the company bears the name of a self-taught makeup from Sydney who's come to LA to work his magic. Napoleon believes that applying makeup should not be difficult--his goal is to demystify the process and to transform runway and red carpet looks to reality. Nice goal! Napoleon further believes that makeup should enhance your natural look--not alter the real you.
The Napoleon Perdis line includes everything you need to get a full face of makeup. Here are three of my faves:
- Palette Patrol, $15: This is a great product to introduce yourself to NP...and I personally love a good palette! This one includes three eyeshadows, three lipglosses, a bronzer, brush, and mini-applicator inside a mirrored box. The shades are ideal for daytime and the compact packaging is great for us gals on the go!
- Eyebrow Pencil, $18: A brow pencil is a beauty essential, but it's one that's easy to overlook. I like the NP brow pencil because it has a great texture. It's easy to use (a light touch is all you need) and it really fills in thin areas in a snap. A finished brow makes a look that much better, and a good brow pencil like this can really do the trick!
- Auto-Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer, $39: This is a bit pricey, but most good primers seem to put a dent in your wallet! A little goes a long way, so a tube should last you a while. This is a lightweight primer that glides on effortlessly. It helps to even out both skin tone and surface, making foundation application easier and better. This is one of NP's top selling products for a reason!
