My Napoleon Perdis Haul

I thought I would share with you the Napoleon Perdis Haul I recently purchased from David Jones Online.  I don't think you get the largest selection online to choose from compared to walking into a David Jones store but there was enough for me to add this fantastic GWP to my cart.

Purchase $79 or more and receive a 7 piece make up gift valued at $200, the offer is available until the 23rd June online or instore.

~ Prismatic Eye Shadow Quad
~ Lip Lacquer
~ China Doll Eyeliner
~ Mosaic Powder - Gleamer
~ Travel Size Gold Long Black Mascara
~ Makeup Shakeup Lesson Card
~ Blue Ostrich Print Tote

Now they say you get a choice of 3 bags with three different colour combinations.  I thought I had chosen the brown eyeshadow collection shown in the photo above but received the blue eyeshadow collection instead.

I purchased a Mosaic Powder Bronzer and Mosaic Powder Blush to qualify for the GWP.

Bronzer  ~  Blusher  ~  Gleamer

I used all three of these Mosaics yesterday and I have to say I LOVE THEM!!  Highly pigmented, Matte Bronzer and Blush,  the Gleamer has a slight sheen, no sparkle, you only need a little, they are all buildable and the colour stays all day.  I didn't need to refresh my makeup at any time during the day, no fading.  I will say for my pale skin the bronzer and blush went on a little dark but it was easy to buff out and achieve the tone I was looking for.  Well pleased with these.

This is the Prismatic Eye Quad #3 I received.

I was not too happy I received the blue/grey/charcoal at first because I don't wear these shades normally but I did wear them yesterday and was quite happy with the result.  It's always good to try something new outside your safety zone, you might surprise yourself!.  I was quite impressed with the staying power of this shadow, the colour stayed fresh all day, there was no fading or creasing.

The Lip Lacquer ~ Shameless Nude ~ is a very pretty pink rose gold slightly holographic shade in the tube but gave me no colour benefit once on the lips.  It is very thick and sticky and I found it extremely hard to apply.  When I tried to apply it as a gloss over my lipstick it took all the lipstick off.  Best used on its own for a glossy juicy look.  Because it is thick and sticky it stays on well until you have something to eat or drink and then the whole lot just disappears.  Can't say I am too impressed with this lip lacquer.

The Gold Long Black Mascara ~ travel size,  I didn't like at all.  It was thick and just made all my eyelashes stick together, I don't know if I got a bad sample but based on that I would not go out and purchase the full size item.  If anyone has a positive review of this mascara I would love to hear from you.

The following product I haven't tried yet as I don't wear eyeliner but it is a very pretty Teal.

China Doll Eye Liner ~ Teal

I loved the big roomy bag all my goodies came in, I will certainly get some use out of it, usually the bags that come with these GWP's are awful but this one is really nice.

There was also a card for a makeup lesson but I live too far away from the city to be able to ever benefit from it.

I was very happy with the quality of most the cosmetics I received and I definitely think this offer was good value.

  5. ooh, I really like your blue/grey shadows, unlike anything I have in my stash. EOTD please? :) Too bad about the mascara and gloss though, and the liner. I suck at applying liner so that would def go to waste in my house :) Honestly, I've never heard of that brand!! Country Bumpkin or what!! lol

  6. It's an Aussie brand Loz, I know Napoleon Perdis made NP SET for BigW and Target and then he has his regular NP cosmetics that I picked up at DJ's. I like the brand even though it's a bit pricey but BigW just had 30% off so I picked up some other palettes I'm going to review.
