Better Off Red A Collection that Celebrates the Classic
Think you can't work a red lip? Think again! Makeup guru Napoleon Perdis is democratising the shade that's synonymous with classic glamour. "Many women shy away from red but they're missing out," he confides. "Wearing a red lip is the fastest way to upgrade your image; it's facebrightening, teeth-whitening, and mood altering." The trick to finding your perfect shade match? "Just leave it for 12 minutes," says Napoleon. "You need to let your eye adjust to a strong statement color like red."
To mark his redvolution, Napoleon launches his new Better Off Red collection: the rouge-devoted lineup consists of seven lip products in varying hues and textures - all spiked with plenty of nourishing ingredients. "I've crafted a collection of red lip shades for all skin tones and ages to prove that red can be anyone's color - no excuses!"Double Agent Rouge ($33 AUD)
Napoleon Says: "Channel your inner Bond girl."
Master the art of the red lip with this innovative lip palette. The semi-matte lipstick is enriched with Vitamin E and Carnauba Wax to ensure a smooth application, while the pressed lip powder that helps to contain color and give an on-trend mattifying effect also boasts Marine Extracts to protect your lips. The result: a velvety, matt-tastic, full-bodied red pout. Lip brush applicators included.
PRO TIP: First load a lip brush with the lipstick then brush over the lips. Build color for intensity. Next pat and smooth powder with the sponge to set color for a totally matte lip look. Undercover Red Lip Gloss ($30 AUD)
Napoleon Says: "This is haute couleur"
Experience truly customized color. Upon contact with the lips, this clear, self-adjusting jelly gloss morphs into your very own shade of red.
