No doubt, Napoleon Perdis is a beauty innovator, which is why it makes perfect sense that his latest collection, The Divine Marchesa, is inspired by another beauty innovator, the late Luisa Casati. Deliciously outlandish and anything but traditionally gorgeous, this Italian noblewoman was known for theatrical cosmetic tricks like weaving velvet into her false lashes.
The Marchesa’s Gothic eccentricity may not work for every woman today, but the collection she inspirits most definitely can. Not for the timid, the gorgeously presented group includes a glamorously dark eye shadow palette, a matte black nail polish, and even a limited-edition bonus lip gloss in a moody, rose-shaped compact.
Our favorite member of the collection, however, is the Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation. It quickly creates an airbrush effect that boasts a flawless finish that lasts for hours on any skin type-even a waxen one like Casati’s.
The perfect fall party picks, The Divine Marchesa is a night-out must for any free spirit who’s been hiding behind shy browns and taupes!
