Paul & Joe Beaute

Sunday, August 12, 2018

You may know Paul & Joe as the Parisian Fashion House known for their effortless ready-to-wear clothing.  But did you know they have a makeup line too?  They did not miss a beat with this one focusing on impeccably packaged, quality products to make every girl swoon! Seriously, this collection is every vanity's dream!

Paul & Joe Beaute infuses the whimsical prints from the runways focusing their concept on Joie de vivre (the joy of life).  It's truly evident in their gorgeous, playful prints, as well as attention to detail by incorporating delicate prints on their blushes and lipsticks.  Really, their products are fun to display because they're so aesthetically unique and beautiful yet they don't skimp on quality.  You will never find such a pigmented, creamy lipstick that looks as beautiful as Paul & Joe's!  When i swatched a few on my arm, i nearly gasped for air with so much excitement!  Often times, when brands attempt to create these quirky lines, the product tends to lack substance in my opinion.  Not here!

Let's feast our eyes on these GORGEOUS lippies!  I couldn't stop photographing them because they are so easy on the eye.  However, bringing myself to swatch them was perhaps one of my most difficult tasks ever as a beauty blogger! Uhhhh, ruining that pretty flower print was not easy but oh so worth it when i began to swatch.  The color is pigmented, rich, creamy and wears beautifully.  If you wanna try one thing from the entire line, i highly recommend the lipsticks!  The colors swatched here have all earned prime real estate in my everyday makeup pouch! Every. last. one! Making these even more fun is the fact that you can choose the lipstick case you love most from their amazing choice of prints and customize it to fit your style.  For instance, select the lipstick shade you want to buy and then select the case/print your want it in, making this an even more personal and exciting experience!

While for me personally, the lipsticks are the true MVP's of this line, there are other products not to be missed! The nail polishes come in a wonderful array of colors to suit every taste palette and in true Paul & Joe fashion, they come housed in the prettiest of ways!  I promise that it will be difficult to pick just one!  My daughter Mimi spotted these on my vanity and immediately requested to wear them for the Taylor Swift Concert.  Per her request, she wore these two shades alternating.  Naturally, i followed suit!

It poured if you couldn't tell by the yellow rain jackets, but we still had fun!  We loved matching our nails too! (Blue in shade #12 and Coral in shade #10)

You can also purchase sweet little eyeshadow trios as well as blush/bronzer combos that you can pair with your package of choice!  The product is interchangeable which  makes playing with these so much more fun!  I'm loving the blush/bronzer palette.  The colors are wearable, blend well and look great against my complexion.

I definitely look forward to trying more from Paul & Joe!  I believe the Fall collection may have a little something for all you kitty cat enthusiasts wink wink!  Makeup can be so fun and it's even more exciting when it's also GOOD!  You can purchase these beauties herehere and here!  Thank you so much for reading!  Xo, Carla
