Paul & Joe Beaute Summer 2012 Shimmering Pressed Powder G 001 Midsummer Nights, Lip Gloss G 002 Fairie Kisses Swatches and Review
Paul & Joe Summer 2012 collection is a dream land full of fantasy like colors that are bright and brilliant. The brand revolves the theme around the eternal story of Shakespeare’s, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” If you haven’t seen the press for Paul & Joe Summer 2012 it can be found here.
The Shimmering Pressed Powder G is a trio of universal flattering shades that enhance your overall complexion with a hint of glow.
The case comes in a floral designed plastic top case with a push button to open.
Once you pop open the pressed powder, not only is there a bright shiny round mirror, there is also a silky soft smooth brush on top of a plastic cover protecting the powder underneath.
Here is a look at the brush.
I think it is interesting that the branding is right next to the mirror.
As pretty as it can be there is the butterfly! Her wings are covered by minty green dews when dancing under the moonlight.
Here is a shot with flash on. If you notice closely, there are shimmers all over the powder providing a luminous glow.
The colors after swatched can be seen as:
Pale pink with crystal sparkles
Champagne gold with pearly shimmer
Rosy red with soft pink sheen
The 4th color on the swatch is what you get from the green overspray. However, after a few swipes it’ll disappear. Thus, on the far right is what the powder will look like on the face after the overspray wears off.
In the summer collection there are 3 Lip Gloss G, 001 Love Potion, 002 Fairie Kisses and 003 Dream a Little Dream. Today we will be featuring 002 Fairie Kisses. It is a bright translucent color that is perfect for any lips.
The color comes in a bright yellow gloss that is full of shimmers. If you look closely you might see that the color has a little bit of green tint to it making the color very eye catching.
As for design, Paul & Joe loves her flowers. Its matching light minty green color cap makes the overall design look super cool.
Besides the tiny brush head for precise application, there is also a metallic cover holding against the brush. And if you don’t know yet, each of the Lip Gloss G is scented differently, for example Fairie Kisses is green apple and vanilla. It smells light and delicious, at the same time quite refreshing.
Here is a sun shot where you can see the shimmers that are sparsely scattered all over the lip gloss.
When I swatched it on my arm, I noticed that the color is a sheer yellow/green tint with subtle shimmer. Obviously, the green apple and vanilla scent made me almost drool. But anyways, the formula is awesome with zero stickiness. Top this magic potion on any lips will add endless shine and sparkle with just a hint of sheer color.
Here is both the press powder (colors combined) and lip gloss swatched side by side.
…And this concludes today’s photos and swatches!
With refreshing scents and sparkly colors that reflect summer, Paul & Joe Summer 2012 really lights up the midsummer nights. The pressed powder gives such a luminous glow to the skin when brightening up the entire complexion. The lip gloss enchants the lips miracally like a fairy’s kiss. No wonder Paul & Joe’s Summer is as dreamy as Shakespeare’s tale. But even better, it’s a dream come true.
