Spring 2012: Napoleon Perdis Love Unleashed Collection:

Lovers of romantic and sophisticated makeup, this collection is for you! Napoleon Perdis's recently launched "Love Unleashed Collection" was inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and it was created in honor of Napoleon's sponsorship of the Australian Ballet (which will be touring the US this Summer).

 I am in the process of testing out a few items from this sophisticated collection: the Creme de la Creme Eye Shadow ($25), The Ultimate Contour Palette ($39), the Nude Rose Lipgloss ($25), the Love Unleashed Lashes ($9), the Eye Will Survive Primer ($24), and the Love Unleashed Lip Gloss Ring (GWP, value $50). All these items are available at Napoleon Perdis concept stores and at Dillard's.

Let's kick off my Napoleon Perdis Love Unleashed reviews with the trio of Creme Eye Shadows! I love a good neutral cream shadow and these super sparkly ones are so pretty!

The Love Unleashed Creme de la Creme Eye Shadows come in three shades:
  • Fool's Gold: Sparkly white
  • Wild Bronze: Reddish bronze
  • Quick Silver: Shimmery champagne-taupe
These soft cream eye shadows deliver long-lasting color. The light-reflecting undertones work to create heavenly eyes that sparkle and captivate. 

These shadows are packaged in clear 10 ml squeeze tubes. Each tube will last you a long time as the product is very concentrated. You will only need a very small amount to produce a vivid metallic color. These cream shadows apply very opaque!

I love the ease of these cream shadows! I just put a tiny amount on my fingertip and then dab it onto my lid. So easy! 

These are very pigmented and loaded with shimmer and sparkle. The effect on the lids is a sparkly metallic shine. The white "Fool's Gold" shade applies a bit more sheer (and a little patchy) and seems to have more glitter than the other two. 

These shades can either be worn on their own or as a base under powdered shadow. 
These shadows wear all day and I do not have trouble with creasing. Shadows rarely crease on me. But still, I am very impressed with the wear! Quick Silver is my new favorite cream shadow for when I want an all over "wash of color" on my lid for a quick and easy, yet sophisticated, look. I just swipe it on, add some liner and mascara, and that's all I need for my eyes!

These shadows are great additions to my cream shadow collection! I especially love the metallic finish of these shadows. I am quite sure that I will be packing Quick Silver in my makeup bag when going out of town. It is just so quick and easy for a weekend or vacation look. 

Thanks so much for reading! Keep checking back as I will be posting reviews for the rest of this collection!

Quicksilver looks like it might be duochrome with a bit of green in some light? Is it? These look wonderful to play with !

@mcemsh102-No, it is not a duochrome. I see mostly bronze/gold/champagne with Quicksilver. I think it is just so sparkly that it can "reflect" nearby colors. It might have just been the lighting in that picture? Either way, it is super pretty!
