So today I am reviewing a few Napoleon Perdis products I received from ry.com.au. They are the China Doll Foundation in Look 2, Camera Finish Powder Foundation in Beige Beauty and a Mattetastic Lipstick in Grace.
First of all, let me just start by saying, Napoleon Perdis was the first “high end” brand I ever purchased makeup from. Ive been a Napoleon Perdis fan since I was a wee teenie bopper and used to get my makeup there for events such as formals and parties and have many loved products from the range. They are an Aussie brand who produce amazing quality products. They have some of the best makeup artists working for their company too and I don’t think there was a time I ever left a Napoleon station dissatisfied.
Anyways, enough of me raving about the company and onto the review.. I have actually used two of the three products sent to me. It is my second tube of the China Doll Foundation and my third of the Camera Finish Powder. I absolutely adore the camera finish powder. Its high coverage and also a great compact to take with you on any occasion. It’s packaging is to die for and while I wouldn’t usually lash out $70 for a powder anymore with such amazing affordable dupes on the market I do love this powder and have no faults in the product itself.
I hate to say this, but I have to be honest – I didn’t like the China Doll foundation. It actually appeared in a ‘products I regret buying’ post I did back in June last year. Now don’t get me wrong here, just because it didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. I just found it really hard to blend no matter what type of way I tried to apply it. Also for the size of the product you get I don’t think it’s worth the money. They have improved their packaging since I last bought the china doll foundation but no this wasn’t a hit for me.
The last product I want to mention is the Mattetastic Lipstick in Grace. Now this product was definitely a hit for me. It’s a beautiful dark nude shade or is it too dark to be a dark nude ? haha I don’t know. Anyways, this lipstick is gorgeous. Super wearable and an everyday shade in my opinion which is great for work. This was definitely my favourite out of the whole lot.
Now only a quick review of Ry.com.au which stands for Recreate Yourself. Ry.com.au is an Australian online website which specialises in beauty products. They offer free shipping over $99 and I was able to test the service of the company and they are just fabulous. My transaction was handled smoothly and I was updated as every stage in my order. The website packages their products securely so items aren’t broken and every order also comes with free samples and lets be honest, who doesn’t love free samples. I am so glad to have discovered RY.com.au and will definitely be looking forward to making many more orders with them. They also have the Kardashian collection hair products launching on their website soon so definitely keep an eye out, I know I will be! You can find their website here.
Until next time.,
