By now a lot of people have heard about Paul & Joe‘s beauty line, especially because of their über cute cat lipsticks! Today I’m sharing with you two products from their Summer 2016 Come Sail Away limited edition (LE): the lipstick in the shade 003 Ahoy! and the lipstick case 002.
Paul & Joe‘s lipsticks are interesting because you can customize them by choosing the case you want.
So when you buy a lipstick make sure you buy a case too, otherwise you’ll have to make another trip to the store after you realize you’re missing a piece. However, once you’re done your lipstick you can keep your case and just go buy a new bullet. So when they release beautiful limited edition cases, like this one, you can keep it for ever and ever – just buy new lipsticks to put in it.
The Come Sail Away LE has a sixties’ retro vibe and offers products and colours for women of all ages! Their lipsticks offer a sheer delicate “kitten kiss” of color for baby-soft lips – and a cat silhouette that stays with you all summer long!
The colour 003 Ahoy! has a beautiful red cat wrapped in a clear-ish balm. Let’s take a closer look at this kitty, isn’t it just the cutest?!?
In real life I find the colour to be a red-ish coral, but in these pictures it leans a bit more pink.
I was really not expecting this lippie to give this much colour and I absolutely love it!
This is a perfect match with my shirt! 🙂
I know lots of people will not want to use this product because they’ll want to keep the embossed cat face FOR EVER 😉 but rest assured that the cat shape goes straight through to the end.
I find this lipstick has a soapy scent. It smells nice, but I find it really odd to have that scent on my lips. It only lasts a few minutes though; it does not linger. But it’s still weird to smell soap when I apply/reapply.
They refer to this as a lipstick, but it’s more a tinted lip balm and that is exactly how it feels and lasts on the lips. I drink a lot during the day and I find I have to reapply every 1 to 1.5 hours. I find the colour also clings a bit to my dry spots (I can tell when I don’t exfoliate the night before). It’s nothing major, but worth mentioning.
Paul & Joe is available at select Shoppers Drug Mart and the Come Sail Away LE is now in stores (it came out in May).
Will you be grabbing anything from this collection?
