So I think it’s safe to say that I’ve fallen pretty head-over-heels for the Paul & Joes Beauty line. It’s such unique looking set of products which feel so special to use. So, when I got the chance to try their nail enamel in 011 Helitrope, I absolutely jumped at the chance!
Packaged in one of the brand’s signature whimsical bottles, 011 Helitrope is a stunning peachy pink, which is just the perfect choice for spring! I’ve been dying to get some colour into my wardrobe, so this felt just right!
The polish applied smoothly and evenly, and I only needed two coats for glossy, even coverage. It looks so fun on, and I’ve been obsessed with how pretty it looks! I got a good four days before I noticed any chipping or tip-wear, which is seriously impressive considering I spent about 80% of last week typing away! Be warned, Heliotrope is part of Paul & Joe’s Spring 2016 collection, and is limited edition, so, if you’re after gorgeous candy-pink nails, you’d better be quick!
Paul & Joe Nail Enamel in Heliotrope is priced at £12.00
When I say that I’ve been dying to try out the Paul & Joe beauty line for years, I’m not exaggerating in the slightest. I absolutely love the clothing line, and the beauty has always just looked so pretty and glamorous – it’s exactly what you want to use every morning! When the Moisturising Foundation Primer arrived, I got super excited – I’ve developed quite the thing for primers recently, so I knew I was going to love one which promised hydration and radiance!
Before I even get started on the primer, I have to address the packaging! Like all of Paul and Joe Beauty, some serious thought has been put into the looks! The bottle itself is glass, decorated with embossed flowers, and has a pump dispenser. It looks like a dream, and it’s so pretty to leave out on my dressing table. Since it’s a pump, the formula stays hygienic, and it’s really easy to control how much you’re using.
I’ve been testing it out for a few days, and I have to say – it’s really impressed me. I only need a single pump of primer to cover my face and neck, and I love the lightweight formula. It disappears into my skin, and leaves a soft radiance which makes foundation look completely natural. It also regulates my skin, meaning I don’t feel dried out and parched by midday. Instead, my makeup stays in place without the need for touchups all day. There are three shades of the primer to choose from – all are pretty light, but give different amounts of lustre and brightness for skin. On days when I’m just running casual errands, I’ve just been smoothing a pump of the primer into moisturised skin instead of using a tinted moisturiser – it evens out skin and gives a healthy glow without looking or feeling heavy.
Paul and Joe Moisturising Foundation Primer is priced at £24.00 and is available here.
