I’m getting Swept Away with the Napoleon Perdis Holiday Collection 2010. The collection celebrates all things tropical so you aren’t getting a traditional Christmas Collection here but one with a warm vibe.
The new Great Escapes Brush Set features an aquatic blue travel case and 8 travel friendly brushes.
Let’s have a look!
A travel size selection of Napoleon Perdis’ brushes housed in a zippered makeup bag.
This is a nice selection of brushes that includes a foundation brush, concealer brush, powder brush, slanted eye shadow brush, eye blender brush, lip liner brush, eye liner brush and a brow brush/lash comb.
The brushes are soft, nicely sized (they aren’t mini but more medium size), and do not shed. They come in a flat sized makeup bag which zippers all the way around. It’s a nice set however….
Like last year’s collection of brushes I felt it was a bit too high in the price department. The set ranges a little less than $10 per brush ($79 for the complete set) but I can’t help but wince slightly at that price. The brushes don’t feel like they are worth such a high end price tag particularly when other sets for the Holidays are considerably cheaper.
- Anyone who likes the Napoleon Perdis brand (fans of the brand may love this).
- Anyone looking for more for less (this is a bit on the high end. Broken down it’s quite cheap per a brush but at $79 for the complete set I feel like it’s a tad on the expensive side).
The brush set is quite nice however shaving off around $30 would set the price tag considerably lower and way more friendly in my opinion. These are nice brushes however there are even nicer ones for alot less available around the Holidays. Not such a bad set but the price needs a little work.
