New Summer Makeup Must-Haves From L.A.’s Napoleon Perdis

If you're like us, you have beauty products taking over your medicine cabinet, every spare purse pocket, and spilling out of your makeup case. It's a cliché that happens to be true: Ladies love their beauty products and are constantly in pursuit of the Next Great Thing. But in the interest of streamlining this summer, not to mention supporting our local economy, we've got our eye on the beauty line Napoleon Perdis. This rad beauty line relocated from Australia to Los Angeles two years ago because the products were so up an Angeleno girls' alley. We've tried everything in town, so trust us when we say it's the perfect So-Cal collection! Plus, we love the NP Concept Store and Academy located in the heart of Hollywood which is right next to the NP shop. So anyone with an hour to kill should definitely stop by for some sweet sampling.
Don't miss these five summer makeup must-haves:
1. The Anti-Aging Elixir ($65): Napoleon's Complex Skin Renewal Serum goes on light and leaves skin feeling instantly tauter and smoother. It's seriously amazing.
2. The Lipstick ($22): The DéVine Goddess lipstick in the perfect rosy-red Niki shade is all you need for a clean summer look.
3. The Gloss ($20): The Luminous Lip Veil in Coral Island is the prettiest sheer pout for summer. Plus it's super moisturizing with Vitamins A and D and aloe vera, which makes it even yummier.
4. The Bronzer ($35): Even out your glow with the Mosaic Powder & Puff in gives just a hint of that sun-kissed radiance that makes you look like you just hiked 10 miles in Runyon Canyon.
5. The Mascara ($25): NP calls this Mesmer-Eyes mascara a "miracle bra for your lashes," and we noticed the Black mascara did give our lashes a defined lush look that won't run.
