Napoleon Perdis’ new eye colour palettes – which hit counters on February 7 – are inspired by the zodiac. The four limited edition quads embody the elements of Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius); Earth (Taurus, Water, Capricorn); Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces).
Napoleon Perdis, a longtime fan of astrology says that “Wearing your zodiac colours creates vibrations that enhance your life.” While I can't personally vouch for that, I can tell you that they’re all pretty and wearable. Which is really all that matters.
My favourite, Air, is privy to a “brainy selection of hues,” being the smartypants signs of the zodiac. Colour-wise, there's bright yellow for Gemini, dusky salmon pink for Libra and bright lilac for Aquarius. The gunmetal mauve-brown represents the Moon.
Napoleon’s Tip: Line with the gunmetal shade (wet the applicator first) and apply a dot of yellow to the inner corner of the eye (nearest your nose) to make eyes pop. Hot.
