Nicholas Perricone, MD is a board certified dermatologist. He has created a No Make-up skincare line which I consider a cross between skincare and make-up. You have to know by now that I always prefer to look like I am not wearing make-up. I will review the products that I use and love briefly below. I took pictures of the entire line to give you the best impression of this amazing skincare line.
No Lipstick Lipstick
If you favour a pink or rosy lip tone like I do then don’t look any further. This lipstick (€36) has SPF 15, gives me amazing glossy lips, is very creamy but still goes on smoothly and matches my natural lipcolor perfectly. It comes in a sturdy and sleek metal packaging. I always cary this lipstick in my purse and to honest I even replaced my rose lipsticks with this balm. The only downside is that I need to combine it with a lipbalm sometimes because it is not moisturizing enough for my dry lips. I can highly recommend this lipstick to everyone. It matches all skintones and it does a wonderfull job. It smells a bit like vanilla but not I don’t think its overwhelming or a dealbreaker.
No Blush Blush
This blush (€52) comes in one (universal) shade that might look a little bright in the bottle but it gives the most amazing natural flush to my skin. It comes in a beautiful frosted glass bottle with a build in doe- foot applicator. The shade looks very natural on my skin. Just dab three dots of the products on your cheeks with the applicator and blend it in. If you want it to blend in seamlessly I would recommend you to use a beauty blender to press it in or a good stippling brush . The No Blush Blush also contains a mineral – based SPF 30 to protect the areas of the face exposed to the sun.
No Mascara Mascara
This mascara (€36) is the best ever!! I can not run out of this one! This mascara doesn’t smudge, it defines each lash perfectly (that is an understatement) and it gives amazing lenght. The no Mascara Mascara is defenitely not too wet or too dry and it stays in place. It has two different kind of bristles but to be honest I don’t mind I just apply two layers of this mascara on my short lashes and it makes my lashes perfecly visible. I would even recommend it on your lower lashes because it stays in place perfectly. The color is between black and brown for the most natural effect.
No Bronzer Bronzer
This natural bronzer (€52) comes in the beautiful frosted glass bottle with a dropper. It tans my skin on a nice way without looking to bronzed or too orange. If you want a more sculpted look or of you want to contour then you will have to layer it but remember that this bronzer is made to look natural on your skin like you are not wearing any make-up. I like to apply it in combination with my blush because the shades match perfectly. It has a little bit of gold shimmer but it doesn’t show up on the skin. I hate a glittery or oily look but this bronzer is nothing like that.
What about the other products?
The other products (No Foundation Foundation, No Concealer Concealer and the No Foundation Serum- €65 , € 52, € 65) are nice but not suitable enough for darker skincolors. The foundation shades are very limited but the reviews are good. If you have bad skin, freckles that you want to cover, dark spots or acne then I would not recommend this line. Every product has very light coverage and is made for you guys who want the enhance the beauty of your skin. All the products are formulated without parabens, sulphates and phthalates but with anti-aging ingredients.
