Makeup mogul Napoleon Perdis is a big fan (as are we!) of the work of the late Slim Aarons, who spent his life photographing “attractive people doing attractive things, in attractive places.” One of Aarons’s most iconic images, Poolside Gossip, was captured in Palm Springs in 1970 at the Richard Neutra-designed Kaufmann house.
Inspired by Aarons’s work, and in particular the sun-kissed glamour of Poolside Gossip, Napoleon has just released a limited edition makeup collection that we are absolutely loving!
The collection includes a set with matte bronzer, cream highlighter and nude lip color, all in a travel-ready cosmetic bag featuring the Poolside Gossip image. This is definitely our new favorite bronzer, and then the highlighter adds a little bit of golden sheen. And we’re into the nude lip look right now, so the “Entitled” crème lipstick will be a great staple all summer!
The collection also includes a great trio of dual-ended eyeliner pens in “High Society” (turquoise), “Privilege” (emerald green) and “Power” (chocolate brown). Says Napoleon:
This collection encapsulates the concept of ‘chic off-duty.’ It’s all about perfectly defined and luminous skin paired with an effortlessly chic nude lip. And to kick it up a notch (or several!), a subtle (or not!) flick of turquoise, emerald or chocolate liner on the eyes. It’s luxe, it’s fabulous, it’s a Napoleon take on poolside glamour!
This collection is so perfectly Palm Springs, and we are very excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Napoleon Perdis to give away a Slim Aarons X Napoleon Perdis Limited-Edition Color Collection set, valued at $145!
