Do you like cats? Are you a sucker for packaging? Well head on over to the Paul & Joe Beaute SS16 collection and grab a cat lipstick!
I have tried Paul & Joe lipsticks before, and I like them because they’re relatively sheer and moisturising. That being said if you are a devout matte lipstick lover, you may want to head the other direction. Me? I have dry lips and do not have the patience to have a perfectly sharp lip line and prefer to have my lip colour and lip balm blended into one.
The colour I chose is “001 Lipstick L Cataran” which is a warm peachy nude colour with a very subtle shimmer – the kind of shimmer that has a volumising* effect on the lips. I actually bought this from beautybay (which now have collect+ shipping!) which had a deal on where you buy a lipstick tube from Paul and Joe and you get a lipstick case for it for free! This offer is no longer available, though there are often offers at beautybay so keep your eyes peeled!
Now, let’s get to the swatchy swatchies…
Overall, this has quickly become my go-to lipstick, my other half, my MVP. It’s easy breezy, and you don’t need a mirror for this, and makes your lips look great – what’s not to love? Apart from the fact that it isn’t long wearing – but this is to be expected of sheer lipsticks.
It’s all relative.
*is volumising even a word?!
