Napoleon Perdis Lipstick & Overnight Lip Balm

Packaged in what resembles slim-line black bullets, this collection earns its name for its high comfort, long-lasting wear with a modern matte finish.

The Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Sophia* ($38) is one of the prettiest, most wearable colours I own. A pink nude that is the perfect partner to almost any makeup look, especially a smokey eye. Although these claim to be a matte finish, I find the formula much more creamy and smooth. If you often have dry lips, I wouldn’t be afraid of these as they actually feel very moisturising. They last up to a few hours before having to reapply and contains Vitamin E to help your lips feel hydrated and soft. The only downside I can see is some people might have trouble with application due to the shape of the lipstick. It does take a bit of getting used to but it’s well worth it. They remind me somewhat of YSL lipsticks because of the shape!

The Auto Pilot Overnight Lip Balm* ($29) is a luxe-feel balm to protect and moisturize dry lips while you sleep. It contains beeswax and Vitamin E to condition and soften the lips. It can also be used to prep and prime your lips if they are dry, very similar to MAC’s Prep + Prime. This leaves your lips feeling so soft, moisturised and has been an absolute life saver for me, especially during the colder days. I love to use it right before bed so it’s definitely become a staple on my bedside table. It’s not sticky in the slightest and absorbs right into your skin, leaving it silky smooth. Oooh yeah!

  • Both sound so lovely! The nude seems to go really well with your skintone! The packaging of the balm is super convenient for on the go too.

  • I agree with Tasha, that shade is lovely on you. I have the shade Audrey and I'm obsessed with it, it feels SO creamy that I would never know it's meant to be matte. But the pigmentation is fantastic… it's almost like a balm/lipstick hybrid ha.

  • Stunning shade! Looks great on you too. I went to Napoleon to get my makeup done a while ago and they used this on me. Such a creamy formulation! xx

  • I really love the colour too! It looks really creamy! Suits you nicely :)

  • The pink nude is such a beautiful shade and it matches your skin tone perfectly! I wish I could wear it too, but pink lips with medium skin tone can be a little bit weird sometimes!

  • That overnight balm sounds perfect for me. I always like to sue something while I sleep, but I find normal lip balms don't make much difference. I like to wake up and have them soft and ready for lipstick – no dry bits!!
    The lipstick is a lovely shade, wearable is the perfect word for it. I need more colours like this. I feel like I only have reds!

  • Ooh they both look like really lovely lip balms, the packaging is gorgeous xx
