WE CONFESS. We're big fans of Napoleon Perdis cosmetics for plenty of reasons.
The lipsticks and eye shadows use high quality pigments that really stay true to their colour and his special products like fake tans, or primers, always deliver and are so beautifully packaged.
In short, Napoleon's cosmetics are a professional make-up range, without the hefty price tag.
Latest release from Napoleon is The One Concealer, $36. This clever corrective agent suits any skin type because it syncs with your colour.
It literally disguises everything you don't want people to see - dark circles, blemishes, pigmentation, scars...
It's also forgiving to fine lines and wrinkles too; it doesn't get stuck in crevices and scream concealer. We want truckloads of it.
And did we mention it comes in a super-stylish pot like a lip gloss, not in a stick, or in some other awkward and unglamorous packaging?
Other recent releases include four fab new shades of NP Set Lipsticks, $22 each.
They include Noosa (Orange), Marseilles (sheer red), Gold Coast (deep fuchsia) and Florence (Candy Pink).
Expect creamy, high-comfort colour with rich, vibrant pigment. Beeswax moisturises while olive oil conditions lips.
Another great new buy is the Lip Balm with Benefits $15. It is laced with shea butter to repair and protect and packed with a punch stain of pigment for a hint of conditioning colour.
It comes in Baja (sheer red) and Capri (sheer orange).
If you're looking for other products that really deliver this summer, we can also recommend these tried and tested Napoleon Perdis favourites.
