Napoleon Perdis Set Lipstick Review + Giveaway!


Hey lovelies!

A few weeks back, I checked my mail and was surprised to receive 2 Napoleon Perdis Set lipsticks in my mailbox! Surprise makeup via mail, almost as good as surprise flowers.

Apparently, NP was giving out some free lipsticks and the bf decided to get 2 for me. According to his logic, if one is good, two must be better! XD

Well, I don't need 2 lipsticks so I'll giving one away the second lipstick to one of you!




The lipstick up for giveaway today is a beautiful nude shade called San Jose. It goes one rather sheer and is surprisingly moisturising.

I'd say it the perfect lipstick when your lips looks as ghostly pale as an undiscovered deep sea jelly fish, and you'd like to inject some natural colour back onto your lips. On cold Monday mornings, this lipstick is my go to lip product as it helps my deathly looking lips look naturally healthy with a natural finish, almost like a lip balms.

The packaging's nothing to phone home about, but I like a simplicity of plain black and white packagings. It reminds me a lot of CK One cosmetics and a little bit of Em by Michelle Phan. The cap has to be my favourite with an accurate colour shown on the top.

The picture below shows a swipe of lipstick on the left and multiple times on the right.




✽ Overall ✽

Lipstick quality: ♥ ♥   
Packaging quality: ♥ ♥ ♥  
Ease of use: ♥ ♥ ♥  



❝ Pros 
A 'safe' nude shade that would probably work for all.
Buildable colour.
No odd heavy scent.
Moisturising for a lipstick.


❝ Cons 
A bit too sheer for a single swipe.


TL;DR:
The sheer lip colour is 'safe' to apply on the run. Applying it out of the lip line can be forgiving as it's very sheer and natural feeling. It feels quite moisturising on sensitive lips and did not make my lips peel (Revlon lip butter made my lips peel and crack).

It's been probably a month since I've started using it and it's been working well! I may check out History Of Whoo Seol Line when I've finished my Laneige one!

    My friend's a huge fan of Korean skin care and she sometimes does guest posts on my blog regarding skin care (cause I'm not very good at skin care. XD) This link's her first post and also a little bit about her.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love you're comment! I've learnt quite a bit from your comment and I do share your pain about not being able to find the right shade of face product! I've recently tried almost 50 foundations and only a small handful suited my skin tone! I currently use a custom blend of a few foundations with moisturiser and sunblock mixed into it cause I can't find a suitable face product for myself!

    ReplyDelete
  58. We can never go wrong with eyeliner! =D

    ReplyDelete
  59. Which brand do you use? Your skin looks flawless.

    ReplyDelete
  60. It took me a long time to finally find a product that actually works for my skin. Especially when my skin doesn't seem to want to follow the normal skin changes through the year.
