Makeup and CAT LOVER beware! Paul & Joe beaute Spring 2014 creation is in! This season Paul & Joe has brought the whole garden along with her favorite kitten to the beauty world. We get to see just about any color we can imagine that appears in a garden like soft pink, bold red, sunny orange, fresh blue, etc. Even the packaging is so much alive with designs of floral, birds and felines, bringing the makeup another layer of feminine and adorableness.
Let’s first take a look at the brand new line of Eyeshadow Trio and its matching case. There will be 8 color combinations for the trio eyeshadow, 3 limited edition compact case along with 1 classic compact case. Photo shown below is the compact case 002 and eyeshadow 05 Cherry Blossom. Check out the whole line up, visit Paul & Joe Beaute. Like many other Paul & Joe products, these compacts and refills are totally interchangeable. You can pick any of the eyeshadow refill and drop it in a case of your choice. With such a wide array of combination, the possibility is endless, all depending on your mood and even your fashion style.
The compact is made of sturdy paper, lightweight and smooth to the touch. There are 3 magnets in the case, one in the middle for the strong hold of the refill and two on each bottom corners so the case is tightly shut when not in use. The clicking sound is especially amusing when playing with it. The curved edge making changing the palette a snap. Eyeshadow trio #005 Cherry Blossom contains 3 natural shades, pink, golden taupe and chocolate brown. Each shade has a different texture and finish, sparkly, pearl and satin. The powder is finely milled that goes on smoothly without feeling gritty. Colors are intense with long wear. There is no fallouts associated the brand.
Does the Face Powder S remind you of Guerlain’s meteorites? I much prefer Paul & Joe’s version. Look at the princessy packaging with the bird themed the case, don’t you feel being pampered already? The puff is super fluffy with an added thickness, soft like cloud as well. There’s also a divider paper in between the pearls and the puff. Though it’s an extras step, it does leave the word “messy” out of the makeup counter.
Four soft shades of white, yellow, pink and blue work together bringing a delicate luminous halo to the skin. Think a bridal veil. It’s almost undetectable yet instantly smooth and reduce any skin tone or surface imperfections. With several light dusts on the face, a sallow complexion will be transformed into radiance and full of life.
Here are the swatches that you’ve been waiting for. The skin is prepped with Paul & Joe Pearl Foundation Primer and ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil Foundation S102. On the left is the trio eyeshadow and right beside the brown shadow is the face powder. The eyeshadows are quite pigmented that adhere to the skin without shifting or sliding. With the help of the Face Powder along with the foundation and primer, the skin is illuminated naturally and glowing beautifully. Take special note that, both the eyeshadow and face powder are lightly floral scented which makes you feel great before putting on makeup.
Paul & Joe for one is truly a lover of the cute little furballs. It is rather hard to take paws off the palette and face powder. Though, their shimmery eye color trio is bright with character and their face powder brings a very natural glow that is beautiful to the eyes. This spring collection brings us back to mother nature.
