Lips, LIPSTICK, NAPOLEON PERDIS, NC20, Yishan | by — September 26, 2013

Tags: ,

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
RangeDéVine Goddess Lipstick
Shade: Aphrodite
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • It’s been 3 years since I last swatched NP’s DéVine Goddess Lipstick in “Andromeda”!  It’s a creamy lipstick that’s packed with pigment that you can layer on to build coverage.
  • It does take several layers to build coverage to achieve an rich opaque red, but by layering it on with a lip brush you get a transfer-resistant finish that’s long lasting and fades gracefully without any uneven patches.
  • Whilst it contains herbal extracts and antioxidants to care for your lips, it applies creamy but sets into a satin finish that’s non-drying.
  • Available in 20 shades, Aphrodite is a classic blue red that’s ultra glamorous and instantly whitens teeth.
  • Verdict: Thumbs up for a flattering shade of blue-red that suits most skin tones, and another thumbs up for being long lasting yet non-drying.  The only thing that doesn’t rock my boat is the packaging. Given that it costs almost the same as Clinique lipsticks in Australia ($1 difference), I expect more than the bulky case & see-through plastic.  That said, Aphrodite will appeal to those that love a rich blue-red in a satin finish that’s more forgiving than matte.

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
Range: Swept Away Siren Lip Gloss Pack (Christmas Collection)
Shades/Flavours: Tangerine (coral), Pineapple (milky pink), Passionfruit (milky nude), Mango (peach), Strawberry.
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Contains five limited edition lip glosses , with shades named by their flavours.
  • Each has its own fruity flavour inspired by the tropics, which is a nice Summery change from other typical gloss flavours.
  • Non-sticky light formula that has a sheer hint colour but loads of flavour.
  • Contains 2 milky shades which seemingly might not suit medium/dark lip tones, but I have found them useful as a finishing touch to nude lips.
  • Key ingredients: Vitamins A, C, E and algae extracts
  • Allergy information: Contains mineral oil, in case you’re sensitive to it.
  • Verdict: An excellent gift idea (who doesn’t love receiving an array of yummy glosses!), value for money and great for sheer gloss lovers to instantly expand your collection.

Comes in my favourite gloss wand, similar to Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip VeilBenefit’s Ultra Shine Lipgloss.

NAPOLEON PERDIS Lip Lacquer – Shameless Nude

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
Range: Lip Lacquer
Shade: Shameless Nude
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Available in 10 shades in a portable 7ml size
  • Personally I feel the squeeze-tube packaging (with a tiny nozzle) is more convenient for makeup artists than for personal use. This lacquer demands a lip brush for better control over such a multi-dimensional shade and thick texture.
  • Being a lacquer, it is sticky but the upside is that it sculpts lips to a plumper shape without needing any tingling ingredients.
  • Key ingredients: Vitamin E, exotic Hawaiian Kuku Nut (healing properties), Avocado, Jojoba, Chamomile and Hazelnut Oils
  • Verdict: A really unique blend of nude and gold, perfect with smokey bronze/copper eyes. This shade is great for those who love an adventure with lip colour.




RRP: $20 AUD / $18 USD

LIP GLOSS, NAPOLEON PERDIS, Yishan | by — October 30, 2010

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
Range: Luminous Lip Veils
Shade: Melon Mania
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Melon Mania is a sheer peach gloss that can be worn alone or on top of peach/coral lipstick.
  • With Napoleon Perdis lipglosses, when they say its enriched with Aloe Vera for hydration, they really mean it. My lips stayed hydrated for up to 3 hours in the office, even after the gloss wore off.
  • Lychee flavour with subtle shimmers.
  • Non-sticky, but it can feel heavy on lips if you get carried away with applying – a little goes a long way.
  • Verdict: There’s 20 lychee-flavoured shades to choose from, costs $25 AUD and has long lasting hydration. What are you waiting for?

My favourite wand for lipglosses is actually these slim-brush ones. It’s gives the most precise application for sheer glosses.

I applied a decent amount for a swatch, but it feels a bit heavy with this much gloss on. This gloss really enhances your pout~

I love these digital swatches from Napoleon Perdis!!

Brand: Napoleon Perdis
Range: DéVine Goddess Lipstick
Shade: Andromeda
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • The DéVine Goddess Lipstick range is a signature series on timeless beauty, and contains herbal extracts & antioxidants to protect lips.
  • Andromeda is a beige-peach that has medium grip on lips & creamy texture.
  • Good lasting power, hydrating with a satin finish even without lip balm.
  • Scent wise, there is the slightest hint of a cake scent that reminds me of Tom Ford Lipsticks.
  • Verdict: Recommended for those that like high coverage hydrating lipsticks that has just enough ‘grip’ for long wear, but doesn’t emphasise lip lines.


Worn above Clarins Firming Lip & Contour Balm to prevent lipstick sinking into lip lines.


When I swatched it on my arm, I never expected it to turn a beige-peach!

I requested this shade based on the digital swatch on the website, but it turned out more beige-peach in real life than the pinky-peach swatch below.

RRP: $33 AUD / $22 USD
