Latest Obsession: Napoleon Perdis Eye Patrol in Private Angel
I haven't really jumped on board when it comes to Napoleon Perdis. Many of the products get rave reviews but I personally haven't seen too much to wow me after testing the items at my local Sephora.
Honestly, many of the products sounded awesome such as the China Doll Foundation and Concealer.
Thankfully I didn't get crazy and order these items online because it turns out that some are downright awful. At least to my eyes. The concealers and foundations are a weird off orange color that remind me of a sixty year old ex-socialite with a bad orange tan from Miami (Kinda how I picture Paris Hilton in 30 Years).
An example of what I mean:
We love you Donatella but SPF is always in fashion my dear!
Actually, come to think of it many of the foundations sorta match Napoleon Perdis's spray on tan.
To get an idea of some of the colors of China Doll Foundation picture Napoleon Perdis as he is here but with more of an orange overcoat!
I'm honestly not being brutal or dissing this brand just for the sake of it. I really felt like the products weren't at all that great. I was pretty shocked at the colors. Who wears this stuff? For serious.
I will say that some products were damn right good and one of which has made it to my Latest Obsession list. I ended up purchasing one Eye Patrol in the color Private Angel. I honestly wanted every single color in the Eye Patrol line. The colors are delightfully sheer yet full of sparkle!
Private Angel is thee perfect gold I've had the pleasure of owning. It's a gold color infused with a million little bits of finely milled shimmer. It's really a versatile color that can be used standing all alone by itself with a bit of liner and mascara or as a base for a more dramatic color or as a highbrow color to light up your current look!
For all Napoleon Perdis's faults I'm saying the line redeems itself with these great shadows!
However, I do predict that these products will sooner or later fall victim to the 75% off Sale at Sephora! I'll be waiting in the wings to snatch up some more Eye Patrol shadows until then!
Do check them out!
Have some already?
