NP SET Gloss and Go Duo – Palm Beach & Venice Beach – Review, Photos, Swatches

LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC20, NP SET, Yishan | by — February 3, 2014

Tags: ,

Brand: NP Set
Range: Gloss and Go Duo
Shades: Palm Beach & Venice Beach
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • NP Set Gloss and Go Duo comes with a clear lip gloss and a long wearing lip stain available in 2 shades – Palm Beach (shimmery peach) and Venice Beach (pink coral)
  • The lip stain applies like a lip lacquer, and on its own it looks pretty average, but the moment the clear gloss is layered on top the colour immediately becomes more vibrant.
  • Although it contains Vitamin E to nourish lips, I wouldn’t say that the lip stain feels particularly moisturising, nor is it drying either.  The gloss however does adds a cushiony comfort to the lips.
  • Verdict: As testament to how budge proof it is, Venice Beach was really difficult to remove, requiring several rounds of heavy duty makeup remover like Biodemra or Clinique Take the Day Off to remove all traces of the vibrant pink colour.  This will appeal to those who love a fresh summer look with the “clean eye look” accentuated by a punchy lip colour.

LIP PLUMPERS, LIP TINTS, NP SET, Yishan | by — December 7, 2010

Tags:

Brand: NP Set
Range: Lip Stain & Plumper
Shade: Moon

Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • A paraben-free moisturising and plumping lip tint that will give you such a full pout that people might think you had injectibles.
  • “Moon” is a sheer pink.  Also available in “Star”, a sheer peach.
  • Not your average ingredient list: Flax Seed Oil (moisturising), Acai extract & Pomegranate (antioxidant), Menthol (cooling), Capsicum (plumping) and Cinnamon (enhances natural colour and shape),  
  • Very zingy sensation as lips are being plumped, and smoothes lines really well.
  • Tastes of cinnamon, which I don’t mind.
  • Love the angled applicator for hygienic application.
  • Verdict: I couldn’t stop staring at my plumped-up pout after using this!  When I think “lip stain” I expect a flush of colour, and not a paler look, but it’s great as an everyday shade.
Don’t let the simple packaging fool you, this lip plumper is serious stuff.
Anything that smoothes my lip lines is a winner for me~
What do you think of the pale pink finish?

NP SET Lip Gloss – Mauritius

LIP GLOSS, NP SET, Yishan | by — December 6, 2010

Brand: NP Set
Range: Lipgloss
Shade: Mauritius
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Paraben-free moisturising lipgloss with Shea Butter and Avocado oil to “nourish your pucker“. Also contains Vitamin C to stimulate collagen.
  • “Mauritius” is a golden peach shade, that turned out to be sheeer when applied.
  • Taste wise, I found it to be very sweet like toffee. 
  • Texture wise, it’s a thick yet non-sticky gloss which comforts dry lips.
  • Verdict: If you love toffee and candy but don’t want the calories, you can feast on this gloss!  Thumbs up for moisturising properties, but I found the golden particles in “Mauritius” to slide around, which is fine as a finishing gloss but not a good idea to wear alone on pigmented lips.

The golden particles look better if worn on top of peach lipstick, instead of worn alone due to its sheer finish on pigmented lips.

Brand: NP Set by Napoleon Perdis
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Boston (Cream)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • This 11-shade range has a mix of sheer, cream and matte shades.
  • Boston is from the ‘cream’ range and is a ginger shade.
  • Contains Shea Butter (elasticity), Avocado Oil (hydrates & protects) and Candellla Wax (prevents moisture loss). You can actually feel the moisture boost to your lips.
  • Paraben-free with natural preservatives, so it’s suitable for sensitive lips.
  • Taste is unnoticeable, even when I’m practically licking it to find a taste!
  • Verdict: I’m impressed how such a weightless lipstick achieves high coverage and hydration. It’s called the ‘Cream’ range, yet it glides as smoothly as a sheer lipstick.
Worn above Clarins Firming Lip & Contour Balm to prevent lipstick sinking into lip lines.
Personally, I feel this shade is a little dark for me.. What do you think?

The digital swatch is pretty accurate compared to a skin swatch.
