Target Offers Designer Glamour without Department Store Price Tags
From his base in Hollywood, Calif., glamour generalissimo Napoleon Perdis has a commanding presence in the beauty world, dispensing advice to both celebrities and civilians everywhere. As the creator of NP Set, the dynamic cosmetics line available at Target, Perdis crafts in-demand, on-trend products in paraben-free formulas with a cocktail of natural ingredients. This spring, NP Set will add five new compelling products to its lineup at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com beginning in March 2010.
NP Set Romance Set ($32) Fall head-over-heels in love with this limited edition mega-palette inspired by a vibrant garland of flowers. The palette includes 26 dreamy colors that evoke a spring fling: 18 eye shadows, four blushes and four lip glosses in swoon-worthy shades including pink, violet, blush and coral. All shades are enriched with vitamin E to nourish skin. The convenient kit also includes three brush applicators. Romance Set is an affair to remember.
Napoleon’s insider tip: Nothing says spring like a dose of vivid color. Instead of lining your eyes with a dark shade, like brown or black, try defining them with a rich purple or a slate blue. It’s fun, flirty and youthful.
NP Set Glamorista Mascara ($15) Elevate lashes to fashionable new heights with this “It Girl” mascara. The luxurious polymer-based formula adds volume and conditions lashes, while the flexible molded wand curls beautifully. Vitamins E and B5 and ginseng extract, known for its conditioning benefits, help to keep lashes lush.
Napoleon’s insider tip: Start and end every makeup look with mascara. Curl your lashes, and add one coat of mascara starting at the base of the lash, walking it through the tips. The soft, flexible brush helps sculpt lashes.
NP Set On the Double Pens ($13) Slim and sleek enough to fit in the smallest clutch, NP Set On the Double Pens distill the makeup essentials so any woman can create a glam look in a flash. These multi-tasking wonders prove that beauty can be achieved with the stroke of a pen—and that the pen really is mightier than the sword.
- Black Liquid Eyeliner + Coral Cream Blush: Create the perfect cat-eye with one end, and add a pinch of color to cheeks and lips with the other end. Vitamins A, C and E and jojoba oil nourish the skin without adding an extra step.
Napoleon’s insider tip: For the perfect liner application, tilt your chin up to see the contour of your eyelid, and apply your pen as close to the lash line as possible. To execute a more exaggerated cat-eye, use an eyeliner pencil to mark with small dots where you want the liquid
eyeliner to start and end. Close one eye and connect the dots. Finish by lining eyes with a pencil and add a few coats of mascara.
- Black Mascara + Concealer / Highlighter: Create fluttery lashes in an instant with one end, and conceal imperfections or highlight the face with the other end. Vitamins A, C, and E condition skin and lashes.
Napoleon’s insider tip: Use a small amount of the concealer/highlighter on the brow bone, lips, eye lid, and upper cheeks for adorable radiance. The concealer/highlighter can also be mixed with your Memory Foundation to customize coverage.
NP Set Eye Primer ($15) Maximize the luster and longevity of eye shadow by applying NP Set Eye Primer first. This primer is ideal for nonstop days when reapplication isn’t an option. A trio of oils – jojoba, rosehip and sunflower—in this paraben and sulfate-free formula ensure the delicate eye area is suitably nourished and effectively protected from inflammation. Not only will your eye makeup live longer, but you will need to use less of it.
Napoleon’s insider tip: Apply just a small dot and smooth over entire lid. The primer will reduce the likelihood of creasing.
NP Set Pretty Presto! ($17) This compact kit with built-in mirror includes two sparkling eye shadows in bronze and chocolate brown, one flattering coral cheek color, a mini mascara and a mini gloss in nude. Vitamins A, E and C condition the skin. Pretty Presto! contains all the elements required to go from bare to beautiful.
Napoleon’s insider tip: Try mixing one of the eye shadow colors with the coral blush to change up your eye statement and create more color options.
