Each refill consists of two harmonizing hues on an individual level that can be applied alone or blended together for a custom shade. Today, I will be showing off Cheek Color refills in 03 Gigi and 08 Candy.

When you take them out of the box, they are wrapped around in a clear plastic container shielding itself away from harm. If you look closely the top of the plastic case has an embossed Paul & Joe chrysanthemum pattern.

03 Gigi is like a dynamic duo of pinks. The pinks is in the combination of shimmery but also matte form. Its name is derived from a heroine of a female French Writer named Colette. To find out more about the book Gigi you can check wiki.

As for 08 Candy, it is a very Spring transitioning to Summer like color. The name itself Candy, reminds me of Bubblegum whenever I see this palette. It is simply a happy little palette. I think orange color plays a big role in thinking of the word Happy and Bubblegum.

So the way the swatch works is that Gigi is on the left and Candy on the right. I have swatched each color separately and combined for you to see. As you can see Gigi’s combination is a light flush of natural pink that is shimmery whereas Candy is a mixed orangy pink. While the formula is easy to apply on, the colors are sure to look natural on the cheeks. If I haven’t mentioned earlier, these Cheek Colors are pleasantly floral scented. So when you hold them in hand, it’s like having a flower bouquet right in front of you.
