PAUL & JOE Beauté is brand that I really have not heard much about, but recall seeing the name in passing on some online stores. The brand has a sense of happiness and well-being with the philosophy of Parisians. As my introduction to the brand, I have a handful of products from the brand to explore.
The really pretty patterned eyeshadows were the first thing to catch my eye. Each eyeshadow has three shades within it and I was also really surprised by the pigmentation. I love that they grouped the shades by tone in order to create easy looks. You can take one of these shadows with you and create a whole look with a warm or cool toned theme. They are easy to tell apart with the designs on the packages to match the colours a bit. I have the shades in Les Feuilles Mortes (warm) and Stroll In The Park (green). They have a slight shimmer to them, so these would be perfect for the upcoming holiday season!
Speaking of packaging, the powders and blush both come with a puff to apply the powders, thriving off of that delicate Parisian vibe. The blush is not exactly the easiest to carry around because of the size of the product. But, the face powder is a perfect travel companion for on-the-go touch ups! The blush is a perfect pink shade to add a healthy flush to your cheeks. But don’t go too overboard, a little goes a long way from this blush. The pressed face powder is your classic translucent mattifying powder – which is one of my essentials. This powder is actually really great and I would recommend it! I love the fact that you can buy the face powder refills instead of a whole new compact. A very clever decision from PAUL & JOE Beauté.
I also have one lipstick from the brand, because you always need to test a lipstick for a full-rounded opinion. The lipsticks have a very smooth glossy formula due to the oil in the lipstick base. It is formulated to melt at body temperature, allowing it to evenly spreading the pigment over the lips in one stroke. Pretty cool? I think so! I have the shade Autumn Sun, which is your classic slightly peachy pink that pulls together a look perfectly.
PAUL & JOE Beauté x Warner Bros. Collection
Two of my products have cases from the limited Warner Bros. Collection! I have two cases with Tom and Jerry designs, but there is also Looney Tunes designs as well. The lipstick case and face powder case came with adorable designs that were very nostalgic of my childhood and I love it. A little bit of nostalgia in beauty products is always a clever idea.
Products from PAUL & JOE Beauté can be found online at beautyBOUTIQUE.ca. If you’re lucky enough you can even find them at limited Shoppers Drug Mart locations. The brand may look dainty, but it is very high quality and fits in with the same price range of many beauty BOUTIQUE brands.
