Paul & Joe – Autumn 2015 Lip Treatment Balm

Paul & Joe – Autumn 2015 Lip Treatment Balm

Just a quick review today on this very cute little tin of Lip Treatment Balm* from Paul & Joe Beaute. This is a limited edition product, part of their Autumn 2015 collection. I just love the bee and flower print on the little round tin, it’s so cute and bees are so popular at the moment. One of the reasons it has bees on is that the ingredients include Honey and Ginger. There is also another limited edition variant of the Lip Treatment Balm that contains Earl Grey Tea, Bergamot and Lemon, and the tin is decorated in a floral design. Other ingredients include Olive Oil and Lavender Oil to help hydrate the lips and lock in moisture. This will be a great little product for Winter, I like to go out walking in the cold weather so I’ll be able to keep this in my pocket to prevent my lips from getting chapped. The product itself is a translucent honey coloured balm, very different from your usual opaque...

Christmas 2015 Makeup Collection from Paul & Joe Beaute

Christmas 2015 Makeup Collection from Paul & Joe Beaute

Cats and make-up are two of my favourite things and Paul & Joe Beaute manage to effortlessly combine these two elements to create some stunningly different and quirky limited edition make-up collections every year. I was sent the new Christmas 2015 Masked Ball* makeup collection to try out and it’s a good one! The collection consists of four make-up items housed inside a cute satin pouch, with a mysterious and seductive masked ball theme. Of course the mask is cat’s eye shaped! The zip-up satin make-up pouch features a cat woman on the front and has an extra pocket inside plus a slot inside the back. It’s a good size to keep inside a handbag or desk drawer. Nestled inside the pouch are two eye products, one cheek product and one multi-tasking bodycare product: Creamy Cheek Color – this is a little tube of cream blush and it’s so cute, the tube is decorated with little masks and cat faces. The shade is a mid pinky brown, the sort of...

Too cute to use? Paul & Joe Beaute Protecting Pressed Powder

Too cute to use? Paul & Joe Beaute Protecting Pressed Powder

Every now and then you come across a beauty product that you just HAVE to have, but it’s too amazing to actually use…. and this Protecting Pressed Powder from Paul & Joe Beaute is one of those products! OK, so I’m a cat lover, I have two cats of my own and although I’m not quite a mad old cat lady yet I do enjoy quirky things with cat prints on them. The blue and red sailor cat print on the top of the pressed powder compact and on the matching drawstring pouch is simply stunning and oh so cute. Right, enough about cats and onto the actual product itself… Protecting Pressed Powder is a limited edition product that came out a month or two ago and it comes in two shades – Lavender which aims to improve the complexion, and Nude Beige (which I chose) that will enhance any skin tone. The powder is extremely fine and helps to control shine and minimise pores by diffusing light, plus it...

Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

Paul & Joe Beaute – Cheek Color & Compact Case

I do love make-up that looks beautiful in its packaging, and there is no brand more pretty that Paul & Joe Beaute. Their limited edition feline and floral packaging is second to none with many pieces being so beautiful that you just want to admire them and almost don’t want to use them. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to Cheek Color 10 (Ombrage) and the Spring 2014 Collection Kitten Print Compact Case (number 002). Shade 10 was the most natural of the Cheek Colors that I could find, it is a pressed powder blusher that consists of a large rose-pink section and a thinner tan colour strip. I love the fact that the pressed powder has the Paul & Joe ‘PJ’ logo imprinted into it, I think it makes it looks really classy. You can see the Cheek Color shades really clearly from the close-up image above. The tan strip of colour has a feint shimmer to it, you can see the glittery particles shining. The...

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

This Floral Make-up Bag from Paul & Joe truly is a thing of beauty! I first saw it reviewed on one of my favourite blogs, Girl With MakeUp, and I had to have one! It’s so pretty with an aqua and lilac floral fabric and the Paul & Joe logo is printed on the front. “What’s so special about it?” I hear you ask. Well, apart from being really pretty it has lots of useful pockets and compartments to help keep make-up and toiletries well organised, and the really clever part about it is that it works a little bit like a Filofax with 2 removable pouches that attach to metal rings, a bit like a ring binder. The image above clearly shows the 2 removable pouches – one is a clear mesh so you can see what is inside it, the other matches the outside of the make-up bag in the cute aqua and lilac floral fabric. Not only does this beautiful bag house the 2 removable pouches,...
