NP Set Day-to-Night Palette | Review


A few weeks ago now I went to the Gold Coast (I was going to write a blog post about the trip but my mum has been quite sick due to having an emergency operation so I've been a bit busy with that) and at one of the Westfield shopping centres they were having a "spend $80 at any fashion, jewellery or cosmetic retailer and receive an NP set eye-shadow palette free" offer. I didn't purposely spend $80 so I could receive this but my mum did so she let me have it. This palettes RRP is $29 so I was more than ecstatic to get it for free. What I would describe the NP Set brand as is Napoleon Perdis in cheaper packaging. This is my first NP set product and I'm really glad I was able to try it.

Included in the palette is 8 eye shadows, 6 shimmery ones and 2 matte ones and in the middle is a bronzer and a blush.

ImageI swatched the four eye shadows that I tend to like the most which is the golden one, the 2 white ones and the purpley grey one on the right side. They are very pigmented which is what I love about them and there is a great variety to choose from. The thing I will say about the golden kind of one is that is scares the crap out of me. I've never worn it out because it's so... gold. I love the shade - don't get me wrong - but it's scary. I'm more of a natural eyes and bold lips kinda person. But I will wear it outside the house at some point - when I get a little more comfortable with eye shadows! 

The bronzer is really good for people with more pale skin because it's not too brown like a lot of bronzers tend to be. By that I mean I feel like some people who are quite pale when they put bronzer on look like they have dirt on their face. Dirt is not a look that I'm wanting to attempt to try so I found this bronzer worked really well with my skin. The blush is also really nice but I find I don't absolutely love it - it's just okay. 

I would definitely recommend this palette or other eye shadows by NP set. They're an okay price, I wouldn't say it's a complete bargain but I do think because of the quality the $29 price tag is okay. I'm assuming it's cheaper on other countries though. You can pick it up at Big W and Target. 

Have you tried this palette or similar ones in the NP set range? Do you like NP set? 


  1. The golden shadow (the very first one) looks amazing! Do they last long? So pretty though :)

  2. Yeah they do! My sister slept in it one time (we were on holiday and exhausted) and it lasted all night and all threw her sleep! haha.
