After hearing a lot of buzz about Napoleon Perdis, I was excited to try out this line of Australian skincare and makeup. Napoleon Perdis boasts over 13 years in the business and the makeup has been used in many of America’s Next Top Model photo shoots.
My absolute favorite product of this bunch has been the Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish Powder Foundation in Look B2. The range of colors is impressive. I usually have trouble finding a face product that is light enough for my pale skin yet this foundation is available in several tan to dark shades as well. The claim is that it “conceals, covers and sets” and I can’t agree more. I have tried this as a foundation using a sponge applicator that comes in the mirrored compact. It provides lightweight, sheer coverage, evens out skin tone and reduces redness.
The formula easily doubles as a concealer – I simply use my finger to dot a little powder onto blemishes and am able to achieve a great amount of coverage. My preferred use for Camera Finish Powder is applying it over tinted moisturizer or foundation. I swirl my fluffy Bare Escentuals Flawless Face Brush over the powder and onto my face, particularly in the “T Zone” to eliminate shine and create a flawless, airbrushed look. Although this product is sold as a foundation, I cannot stress how lightweight and comfortable it is. Even worn over foundation, it delivers great coverage and pigment but won’t settle in lines or clog pores.
If you act quickly, you can even find some shades on sale at Sephora.
