NP Set Cosmetics at Target
I have been eager to try some of the new NP Set Cosmetics line that was recently launched at Target Stores. I was particularly eager because of my positive experiences while recently reviewing some of Napoleon Perdis’ cosmetics (Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer and Long Black Mascara).
I sampled NP Set’s Pre-Foundation Primer at the counter which was slightly pink in comparison with the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer and I found it light, absorbed quickly into my skin, and seemed to have some light diffusing qualities. I took my time sampling their eye shadows, and browsed through NP Set’s Show Loose Dust Duos. I was instantly drawn to their Russia Silver and Gray duo, and ended up buying it.
When at home, I found that the wand applicators were difficult to control with an optimum amount of product and placement; a cosmetic eye brush would have worked much better. As a word of warning, be careful how you open the container or you might spill a large amount of your powder. I found that this loose eye shadow lighter shade powder goes on in a true silver sparkle, and I love the darker purplish-deeper gray shade. I found myself a bit disappointed by this eye shadow’s staying power and weird applicator method, and the price ($26) seemed too steep.
All in all, I found the NP Set cosmetic line to be compelling, but I might be more willing to experiment with the NP Set line if they were more reasonably priced. Most products cost over $15, including the lip glosses. The samples available allow some experimentation, but it is always hard to determine how much you like a product until to take it home and wear it. I would love to hear if any of you have sampled some of the NP Set Line and how you feel about it.
