Paul & Joe Summer 2017 Collection: Review and Swatches
In terms of packaging and product design, Paul & Joe always has a special place in my heart thanks to their exquisite prints and adorable designs. So today I want to share with you a few darlings from the brand's Summer 2017 Daydream Believer Collection, coming this May. To see some swatches and read my review, click.....

Paul & Joe Powder Blush in "002 Mon Lapin" ($21 CAD) | Compact 013 ($8 CAD):
Technically part of the Spring 2017 Les Petits Noms D'Amour Collection that's available now, this limited edition powder blush (compact sold separately) features a dual-color design pressed with the classic Paul & Joe chrysanthemum flower. The shade "002 Mon Lapin" (My Rabbit) is made of a pretty soft pink and a bright hot pink. Surprisingly, the two combine to form a rather natural pink with a subtle shimmer.

The formulation is very creamy and smooth. While the pigmentation is semi-sheer, it is easily buildable if you want to up the intensity. Lastly, the powder also has a soft fruity floral scent that nicely compliments the adorable packaging design.

Paul & Joe Eye Color Limited in "006 Head in the Clouds" ($34 CAD):
The Summer 2017 Daydream Believer Collection is full of feminine pastels and this Eye Color Limited eyeshadow palette consists of five distinct shades pressed into a gorgeous mosaic pattern. You get a pearlescent white shimmer, a pale satin gold, a soft satin rose, a matte baby pink, and a shimmery soft green. All five shades are pretty sheer so they only provide a soft wash of color. However, the formulation is very silky and creamy. Like the powder blush, this eyeshadow palette also has a nice soft fragrance.

Paul & Joe Summer 2017 Gel Blush in "002 Monde Imaginaire" & "003 Onirique" ($27 CAD each):
With a squishy, almost jello-like texture, the Gel Blush features a sheer but buildable formulation that feels cooling and refreshing on the cheeks. The product can be applied using just your fingertips but I opted to use a synthetic stippling brush, which did a great job at blending the blush. "002 Monde Imaginaire" (Imaginary World) is a fresh baby peach while "003 Onirique" (Dreamlike) is a natural peach-brown. Both shades have a subtle sparkle that's more obvious under direct sunlight and the blushes have a very unique floral fragrance as well! Overall, I kind of love these! Cream blushes aren't really my thing but the fresh and fun formulation of these Gel Blushes is so refreshing and flattering!
