Hello girls - I couldn't wait to share this collection with you!!!
Paul & Joe Autumn 2011 Collection pays homage to New York City.
The packaging is gorgeous and quirky as always - these are the perfect items if you like to collect make up. They will look glorious on any dressing table!
Plus, they are also eco-friendly because made from cardboard and one of the particularity with Paul & Joe lipsticks is that you can take the bullet out of the case and swap with another packaging if you wish.
That's what I like from this brand: attention to details, like the 'engraving' on the lipstick; I feel nearly guilty using this stuff. ;)
Every piece is named after a different part of the city - the colours mix neutral with darker shades.
I tried to swatch them separately but it was a bit tricky because of the 'criss-cross pattern' - in any case I think the colours works better together. If you want to use them individually I would recommend a sponge applicator.
The shadows are very creamy (at a first look, I though they would have been ashy) and easily blendable.
The lipsticks are buttery and glide on very well; they are quite sheer but buildable.
