Paul & Joe Beaute: April in Paris Collection Part 1

Paul & Joe Beaute create cosmetic collections that are not only great quality products but also have gorgeous collectible packaging which is unusual and too pretty to use! The Paris in April Spring 2018 collection is no exception. Their face powders are mini records with cat and flower record sleeves whilst the limited edition eyeshadow, blusher  and lipstick cases cases continue the cat and flower theme.  There are also three limited edition sheer lipsticks and nail varnishes (reviewed in part 2).


Paul & Joe are known for imprinting makeup into thin layers and then using it creatively.  The limited edition face powders have been made into mini records which can be stored in the mini record sleeves.  The records come in sets of 3 and are £16.  The record vinyl (protective plastic)  is peeled back to get to the face powder pigment which has been sprayed on to the card.  The plastic does stick back down very easily once it has been used.  They do have a very slight tea rose scent, as do all Paul and Joe products, but this soon does down. The selection of colours does veer towards pink apart from the pop of olive colour. Some of the colours seemed glittery whilst the greens/olive has a golden sheen to it.  They are quite soft and pigmented, so you don't need to use much to get a good wash of colour.  According to the description on Amazon UK, you get around 30 uses per card. These are great for travel as they are   Flat, small, light and multi use.  If you were desperate you could even use the pink shades as lipstick and put some lip balm over the top!


I purchased these items myself.
