This review is for the Face & Eye Color in the Summer 2016 collection. This palette comes with a deep bronze, creamy yellow, and mid tone pink. The bronzer has a slight satin finish but I used it as a contour shade and it looks quite natural. The middle shade looks like a matte finish but it actually has this amazing pearly sheen. The pink shade is not as crazy as it looks in the pan and is a natural healthy flush of color. The three colors really do work well to create a cohesive cheek look.
The powders were smooth to use although not very creamy. The colors blended easily and layered super nicely with each other. The colors were also pigmented and very easy to build! The only complaint I have is that the pans are relatively small and might not fit big brushes.
I can't really remember the price because I bought this in Hong Kong a while ago.
I love Paul & Joe products but it's such a pain to get when I'm in Canada so I tend to do my Paul & Joe stocking up when in Asia.
I have this in the orange shade 08. The blush is split into 2 sections, one being more of a highlight shade and the other the blusher shade. I find this to be quite pigmented so careful application is a must! I normally swirl the 2 colors together before applying and add more of the lighter orange shade to highlight my cheeks.
The finish is a soft shimmer, nothing too glittery. It gives a nice apricot color on my cheeks and lasting power is decent. I normally don't touch up on blush throughout the day and this doesn't fade completely.
I got this instead when I ran out of my Nars blush/bronzer duo. It was slightly cheaper and I wanted to try the "LOVE" colour cause it was super cute. It has a larger pink blush and a highlighting colour crescent beside it that's sort of a pale banana yellow. I use the blush on the apples of my cheeks, and the highlighters above my cheek bones. I've also tried highlighting the length of my nose to create the illusion of a longer face. I find that while the compact's pretty small for a blush/bronzer, it works fairly well and I can carry it around because it's not too bulky (unlike the Nars case). It applies on the cheeks well but isn't super heavy in terms of coverage. I think I'd recommend it.
