The Spring Season: NP Set Mauritius Lipgloss

NP Set Mauritius Lipgloss ($15.00) is a stunning, fiery-orange shimmered peachy-orange gloss. This is truly stunning! It looks gorgeous when swatched, but on lips, the shimmer and shine of the gloss really becomes apparent. I would love this gloss even more if it was just a smidgen more pigmented/vibrant, but the way it shimmers is divine! It’s a fairly creamy gloss so it’s a little on the thicker side (fine with me) and wears a solid three hours on me.

Is this the right gloss for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

Wow this is stunning! Does this brand have any other glosses with this same effect? I would like to see this in other colors. But this is beautiful!

For some reason, I have a hard time spending $15 on a Target lipgloss — even though they have some great brands now. I may just have to branch out!

There’s a Napoleon Perdis counter at my local department store – I might just have to stop in and check this out! Though knowing my luck they even have it…

Colour: pretty.
Formula: …ew.

It obviously settles into the lip lines. I don’t think ANY of my lip glosses go that, and my lips aren’t in the best condition. I also think it’s too glittery for the shade and formula. Perhaps if it were a solid creme, I wouldn’t have gotten that instant “ewww” reaction :/

Um, whoa.
I would want it even more if it weren’t so reminiscent of MAC Nymphette, NARS Orgasm and Cle de Peau #2…hmm. Comparing your lip swatches of all four, though, I have to say that Mauritius actually impresses me the most! *drool*

I ran to Tarjee, quick, fast, and in a hurry for this color . . . and I love it!! I think it would flatter most skin tones (I’m a tan/brown girl) and because it’s a slightly creamy opaque it’s a great nude alternative with a hint of a peachy, rosey, gold shimmer color. No lip liner required, and it’s versatile enough for day or night. However because it’s at Target, it may be hard to find (I bought the last one in stock), the other colors weren’t too bad either. I think I’m lovin’ NP Set. Thanks Temptalia! once again for expanding our horizons and introducing lines we may not otherwise have given the time of day.

I didn’t pick up the other colors because they looked similar to a few Lancome juicy tube colors I already have, Marutitius I would have to say is the front-runner with it’s unique and opaque color. Hawaii and Island both look like clear shimmer on my pigmented lips, those two would prob look nice over lipstick, between the two I would pick Island. Mykonos (mauve), St. John (red), and Maldives (rose)are not my cup-o-tea, I prefer lighter color glosses. I do agree that $15 is a little high for Target, but the color and quality makes it worth the price, and yes it did last on my lips for a few hours.

Hi Christine, I know this is an old post, but perhaps you will see this: is it a dupe for MAC’s Soft Dazzle Dazzleglass Creme that came out with a recent collection? Do you know?
