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.
I 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?
