NP Set - Contour & Highlight Palette

Over the weekend I attended a Sydney Outlet Shopping tour through Bargain Buyers. This tour included a bus trip to various factory outlets in Sydney and included a stop at the Napoleon Perdis Outlet in Alexandra where I picked up the NP Set Contour & Highlight Palette.

NP Set is the new and more affordable cosmetic line from Aussie Makeup Guru, Napoleon Perdis and was designed “… with on trend colour options, skin-nurturing ingredients and totally decent pricing…” – Napoleon Perdis.  

The palette contains a white highlighter, contouring bronzer as well as a dusty pink blush and a pink shimmery highlighter to highlight, brighten and contour your skin, creating celeb-worthy bone structure.

To use, sweep the bronzer under your cheek bones and onto your temples to frame your face (blend, blend, blend to create a subtle glow). Add the dusty pink blush to your cheeks and pink highlighter above your cheekbones and to finish the look, apply the white highlighter to brow bone, inner corners of the eyes and your cupids bow (centre of lips) for a brighter complexion.

The matte bronzer is a nice shade of bronze however can apply quite heavy and I found I was buffing like crazy to blend it in and reduce harsh lines. The dusty pink blush is already a fave and applies nicely to create a blushing look.  Each colour works perfectly together and the soft powders make it fool proof to create a faux summer glow.

Swatches L-R: White highlighter, bronzer, blush and pink highlighter (both highlighters were hard to photograph)

Like all NP Set products the powders contain Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Vitamins A,C and E to soften, moisturise and provide antioxidant benefits and the palette comes packaged in a practical (and recyclable) hard cardboard box with a good sized mirror and a magnetic clasp.

NP Set is widely available from Target, Napoleon Perdis concept stores or counters or online at NPSet.

  1. It looks so lovely on you! But I don't think it'd work on me. *sadface* I'm so tanned, I think these colours will just disappear on me. Also never quite got the hang of highlighting!
