Shopping at Target is probably one of my guiltiest pleasures. I don’t think there is a week that goes by that I don’t stop in for something and leave with a shopping cart full of stuff. One of my favorite parts of my shopping trip is stopping by their beauty department, thanks to all the high-end brands you can find there. So it’s rare that some kind of makeup or beauty product doesn’t get added to my cart.
I was super excited when I got the job to review NP Set eyeshadow duos by Napoleon Perdis ($10). Napoleon Perdis is one of my favorite Target makeup finds. I first discovered this brand when I picked up a lipgloss on a random whim. Since then, I’ve tried several NP products and I’ve been more than impressed with the professional quality. At $10 a duo, these won’t break the bank.
The eye shadow duos come in six shade combinations, each named after a tropical island.
Antigua – rich brown shimmer and dark nude matte
Saint Croix – shimmering dirty purple and light pink
Saint Lucia – matte medium brown and light gold shimmer
Saint Barts – shimmering apricot with a slightly blue cast and bronze gold
Martinique – shimmering bright smoky purple and white gold
Barbados – medium bronze brown and rich orange gold
Here’s a closer look at them…
The shadows are very rich in pigment, go on smoothly and blend easily. I tested two duos, St. Croix, a gorgeous duo of a pearly pink and shimmery grayish plum, and Antigua, a dark shimmering brown and medium brownish pink matte. Both duos are complimentary to each other and can be mixed and worn together for even more color combinations.
• Easily found at Target.
• Professional quality.
• Rich in pigment.
• Blend easily.
• Available in mostly neutral shades.
• A bit pricier than most drug store brands.
The next time you find yourself on a shopping trip at Target, check out the NP Set duos and all that Napoleon Perdis has to offer. You won’t be sorry!
