Napoleon Perdis Pro Lips


These black and white lipsticks are designed to lighten, brighten, tint, and add dimension and depth to your pout. Create a bespoke hue by mixing, blending, and layering Pro Lips Lipstick with any lipstick for a shade that’s uniquely yours. 

What’s this? ANOTHER lipstick review? Yes, yes it is. If you’ve not noticed I’m going through a bit of a lipstick/gloss/stain/cream/etc phase at the moment. Today, I’m here to share with you my love for these beautiful Napoleon Perdis Pro Lipsticks ($25) in Blanc and Noir. These lipsticks are not just your regular kind of lipstick – they’re made for you to mix in with other lipsticks & create other colour options.

These are some of the newest releases from Napoleon Perdis and as usual, the packaging is so gorgeous! They’re are a bit smaller than your average lipstick and come in a glass, square shape. However, I can assure you all they are very sturdy (yes, I’ve already dropped them multiple times). As with all Napoleon Perdis lipsticks, these are enriched with Vitamin E so they are super moisturising. The formula is amazing, they pretty much glide on your lips & feel sooo smooth.

Out of the two, I found the Blanc (white) my favourite. You can lighten your lipstick by adding two parts Blanc Lipstick & one part of your selected lip shade. I mostly like using Blanc as a prep product. Just use your fingers to stipple the product over your lips before applying lipstick and this will give you a more true version of the colour. I find it really handy if you’re doing lipstick swatches for blog photos, the colours come out so much brighter. I love using this shade to create ‘ombre’ lips by applying a lipstick colour and then dabbing this in the centre with a lip brush. I found it so much easier to apply lipstick with Blanc underneath as I often struggle staying in the lines and it kind of concealed any dry bits. Not only that, but it
smooths out all my lines & thought it made my lips a lot more full!

When you use the Noir (the black) shade, you can apply it over or under a lipstick of your choice to deepen the shade. My personal favourite is applying it over reds. You can create a 3D lip by shading the outer edges of the lips with Noir, apply your chosen lipstick all over the lip, then blend & fuse the two pigments together. Noir can also be used to make your lips appear more full by blending a fine line of it along the inner edge of your lower lip. In the photo below, I dabbed a bit of Noir over my Kate Rimmel 107 lipstick to darken the shade.
