Napoleon Perdis Steals and Deals: The French Riviera Gift Set Review

A few weeks ago I had blogged about Napoleon Perdis’s demise from Sephora. Although I’m not the biggest fan in the world of his makeup I couldn’t resist a sale so I decided to grab a few odd pieces from Sephora’s website as it was all marked down 50%! Seriously, even if I hate something I can’t miss out on a steal and a deal. Am I the only one that feels that way? Hells you can sell me snow in the Summer if you said it was 50% off!

I purchased quite a few things but I’ll only be featuring one in this review today. For some odd reason or another Urban Decay has changed my outlook on bronzers in a major way. Since my love affair with Urban Decay’s Baked Bronzer has escalated I find myself checking out bronzers here and there on occasion.

So when I ran across the Napoleon Perdis French Riviera for $15 USD I decided I’d give it a whirl! Can’t lose much for the price right?

The set came in a rather nicely made bright box and included French Riviera bronzer, Madam Curl Peep Show Mascara, and Satin Lips Lip Gloss in French Riviera.

I’ll be honest and admit I purchased the kit because I loved the burnt orange glow of the lovely lip gloss! I couldn’t take my eyes off of it! It’s truly a fab shade! However, to my delight and shock I ended up loving the entire kit!

Who could have known I actually like something from Napoleon Perdis Collection! For shame on me for calling him a umpa lumpa! I take back any bad thing I’ve ever said about Napoleon Perdis…temporarily anyway!

The bronzer in this kit was a particularly scary orange, brown, oh my god I can’t believe it’s not butter shade that the Muse normally avoids however turns out that it works pretty good on my skin and gives me a healthy peachy flush!

The mascara it’s actually good too! This gets better and better doesn’t it? The mascara is a solid mascara that offers volume and nice curl with good staying power and no smudging!

And of course the best piece of the collection the gorgeous gloss which is pigmented and gorgeous! The color is a cross between burnt orange and a deep coral!

I simply love how three simple pieces of cosmetic created a gorgeous look on my face this morning! I used the bronzer on my face and eyes, curled my lashes and applied the mascara, swiped some of the gloss on, and I was looking fresh and Summer-like!

The kit is worth the $15 USD I spent on it! A few months ago at the original price I’d have passed it up quickly enough since I hate bronzers and the price wasn’t quite right enough to make me spill the cash on something that I was only loving the gloss from! But since it was on sale I’m happy to say this was a nice splurge!

I’ve seen a few Sephora’s with at least ten or more of these in stock so definately head on out and check it out for yourself!

The Muse says it’s worth some of your time!

Nabbed this kit?
