We all have guilty pleasures, and (if it isn’t obvious) my favorite one is cosmetics! There’s just something all too tempting about an item that’s not only pretty on the skin but when it comes to the packaging as well. Beauty brand Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics has brought together elegant casing and beautiful hues to create the Gilty Pleasures Collection. Without even seeing the collection, you can tell from the name that everything is touched by the holiday-friendly, metallic shades of gold, silver, and bronze!
The likes of Whitney Port, Leighton Meester, Anna-Lynne McCord, and more can be counted amongst Napoleon Perdis fans, making him responsible for some of the biggest faces in young Hollywood. Complete with everything from makeup brushes to bronzing products, Perdis has used his own “Midas touch” to ensure a little sparkle and shimmer from every piece of his gilded creations!
Check out my favorite picks:
Gold Digger Glimmer ($25) –Doesn’t the name just kill you?
Rich in pigment and easy to apply, these little pots of sparkle come in yellow gold, white gold, and bronze — perfect shades for all the upcoming parties! I love seeing all the dazzling makeup looks created during the holidays, and these glimmers will be in high demand! Plus, I couldn’t help but fall in love with that oh-so-chic packaging!
Bronze Bonanza ($39)
I was born with naturally-tan skin, but during the winter, I tend to “fade” a bit since I’m rarely out in the sun. Since I rarely use bronzer, it’s even more rare for me to find one I like! This finely-milled, buildable formula is just what I needed to fake that “born in the sun” shade. Use it all over — including the décolletage for just that perfect pop of sun-kissed sparkle.
What products do you call on when you need that glowing look?
