Still More Napoleon...

Napoleon teaching me how to use his fantabulous NP set cosmetics.

So for those of you just tuning in, I had a successful meeting with Napoleon Perdis a week or so ago, and I had so much to share that it just wouldn't fit in only one post! So here is my second installment. I've been playing with NP set cosmetics for over a week now, and I am in love. I will attempt to explain why without totally sounding like an infomercial.
  • The cosmetics are top notch, high quality. Napoleon pinched pennies on the packaging, and invested all of his cash into the make-up. This is sweetness for you and me, because it is high-end department store quality, with Target prices.
  • I am no make-up artist...not even close, but Napoleon's make-up has been super easy to use. I've had so much fun experimenting, especially with the palettes. It has been a breath of fresh air to my routine.
  • The make-up is creatively named after different destination cities across the land. Yes Houston is represented (in a navy eyeliner and a shade of foundation).
  • On each product you find a "What's In It for Me," list of all active ingredients such as Pomegranate extract, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, and Vitamins A and E, etc. so you know you're skin is getting nutrients, and looking fabulous.
  • One more NP expert tip - to stay on top of make-up trends, check out what's happening on the runway, then adapt the same style to yourself using only 20% of the color intensity
Also, when I asked Napoleon why he chose to visit our lovely city he emphatically said "because Houston women are FUN!" Hmmm...I guess we are...aren't we:) Thanks Napoleon!
