Napoleon Perdis was one of the first prestige makeup brands I ever used. I would pack my Camera Finish Powder Foundation ($69) compact into my clutch before a night out when I was 18 years old, and get a real kick when strangers eyed it in the club bathroom. It's a nostalgic brand for me, and really introduced me to a lot of elevated makeup concepts, like priming, colour correcting, and different textures and finishes. Today, it's still loved by both pros and consumers, so when I heard the news it was launching into Priceline a few months ago, I thought, "what a great move". I actually interviewed Napoleon himself not long after the Priceline intro, and he explained to me that it was a mutually beneficial relationship: "Priceline really had the space for a brand like Napoleon Perdis, and we're constantly striving to make our brand available to everyone."
Following the launch, I rediscovered just how great Napoleon products really are. Turns out, I've even got a new favourite mascara. Keep scrolling for my top three, and accompanying reviews.
In my honest opinion, nothing beats a comb-wand mascara, and the long, lean lashes that come with it. This formula is super light, so layering it up is totally fine, and it really delivers clean length and definition. It's also got two different bristle lengths, so you can flip it around for different effects.
What I love about this is that it's not at all frosty. Just clean, glossy, highlighted perfection. I dab it onto my cheekbones, eyelids, nose, and cupids bow before blending with my finger.
This is literally eye shadow for those who cannot eye shadow (read: me). Just dip your finger in, pat it onto your eyelid and blend. It's super creamy, and won't crease. I love it paired with brushed-up brows and nude lips.
