@NapoleonPerdis Takes Mascara to the Next Level

Australian makeup master Napoleon Perdis is taking lashes to new lengths with the launch of Magnif-Eyes.  This new mascara comes in a slim tube with a super bushy brush.  A+ for mascara and super smooth for application.

Napoleon says: “Magnify your lashes to the max!”

New year, new mascara! When it comes to lashes, there’s little doubt that bigger is better. In addition to providing a fluttery frame for the eyes, lashes give structure to the entire face, regardless of the makeup statement. “I wanted to add another option to my mascara stable”, explains Napoleon. “Magnif-Eyes is a very sophisticated yet fragrance-free formula that conditions the lashes and really defines the eyes thanks to the super-skinny brush.”

Magnif-Eyes boasts superior lengthening, lifting, and strengthening superpowers to truly put lashes in the spotlight. Magnif-Eyes treats eyes to a collagen-charged, long-wear formula with a support crew of triglyceride, high-tech polymers and ultra-soft waxes for maximum strength, flexibility and glide. The cutting-edge formula is fragrance free, making it suitable for sensitive eyes. As any mascara maven knows, the brush is the key to a smooth application that delivers high impact lashes, and the superfine Magnif-Eyes spiral brush works wonders with a wrap-around effect, carefully coating and defining each and every lash. Don’t forget to do as Napoleon does and apply your mascara first!

Check out the final look!

PRO TIP: For a full upper lash line, start in the center of your lash line and brush up. Sweep outward on the outer and inner lashes to create a fanned effect.

Magnif-Eyes Mascara – SRP: $25

Hint of Lip: Soft colors

There is a new breed of lippies in town and they are kissable, sheer and so easy to apply that you don’t even need a mirror. More than a lip balm, less goopey as glossy and less tricky than lipstick. They are not tints and they definitely make me smile. They are great for a natural look which is very in style for spring and summer. Everyday wear is absolutely recommended for colors like these.

DSCN4209Here are my top picks.

1.Everyday Minerals You Pierce My Soul & Love Birds ($6.99):

DSCN4208A wearable shade of berry, this lip shade easily translates from day to night. Sumptuous and sweet, Everyday Minerals hand crafted this hue with rich Amazonian butters like Cupuacu and Murumuru, the finest Jojoba Oil, French Lavender essential oil, and hints of Sweet Orange to pamper your lips like never before!

2. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter ($6.49) Strawberry Shortcake

Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips on the Revlon site they say that 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated! They are unscented and unflavored but they do have juicy names. 20 shades available.

3. Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer $5.00

Nourishes and moisturizes lips with Vitamin E and Beeswax. It is also enriched with Sunflower and Coconut Oils and has Peppermint flavor. I love the skinny tubes and it comes in 12 shimmering shades.

4. Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational ($5.94)

So perfectly slippery – Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel. There are no oils or waxes. I am totally love with these gel colors. I promise you these colors look good on everyone. There are 20 shades

Perfection!
