The Paul & Joe release for spring is definitely a bit different, in celebrating their 10th anniversary, they have gone all out and then some, of having a cat themed collection.
The spring collection is released in two parts, first you have Collection Sparkles, which consists of lipsticks and face & eye trios and at the end of the month you will get the kitten collection, of which cat head shaped blusher sticks and a pressed powder with a cat silhouette and its very own paw print sponge are likely to be the stand outs.
The lipsticks come in cardboard packaging featuring prints from Paul & Joe’s fashion collections and each lipstick is embossed with little paw prints.
There are 3 lipstick in the collection (£16 each): #75 Sex Kitten (beige nude with a bit of warmth, this swatches a lot more warm compared to how it goes on my lips so I wouldn't disregard this if you are cool toned like me)
#76 Meow! (cloudy pink) #77 Catwalk (coral pink)
All shades are reasonably sheer, colours are soft and natural, the finish is satin. The lipsticks feel very smooth, moisturising and comfortable, yet I did notice these can highlight dry bits, so its best to check lips are smooth before application. I wouldn't say these are long lasting but nor are they fleeting like Chanel Coco Shines.
Swatches L-R:Sex Kitten, Meow! and Catwalk
Though I tend towards the more sleek looking brands, there is something very fun, fresh and young about the Paul & Joe seasonal releases so I couldn't resist this unashamedly cute collection and yes I am contemplating the cat head blush sticks when they launch.
