Kitschy-Kit: Paul & Joe Holiday 2012
The Paul & Joe Holiday Makeup Collection is a sweet gift collected in kitschy packaging. The limited edition makeup collection includes a skin perfecting Face Powder, Creamy Cheek Powder and pouch.
The Face Powder provides a soft matte finish with a touch of shine. Tiny sphere-shaped particles feel light and cool on the skin and creates a fresh finish. Use this powder to set your makeup and/or under-eye concealer. The Holiday Collection also comes with a contouring Creamy Cheek Powder, available in two sweet shades, Frozen Lilac (rose) and Sleigh Ride (peach). Easy to apply, these Creamy Cheek Powders add a subtle pop of color and are embossed with a holiday snowflake that creates a soft glow.
This precious, must-have kit comes in a kitschy unicorn-printed pouch that is both useful and adorable. Select one of these delightful collections to ensure a holiday season filled with beauty inside and out.
Dream Cream: Jouer Cream Eyeshadow
Jouer Cream Eyeshadow is the do-it-all eye product for quick, low maintenance makeup. Line, shade and/or contour your eyes with these easy-to-blend beauties.
These cream eyeshadows are like nothing I have tried before. Extremely lightweight in texture, the formula glides effortlessly onto the lids. They feel like velvet on the skin and the smudge-proof formula lasts all day. The consistency is both layerable and buildable providing options for a sheer or dramatic application.
Available in five gorgeous shades:
♦ Chiffon – shimmering ivory pearl
♦ Feather – shimmering pink champagne
♦ Organza – shimmering lavender taupe
♦ Cashmere – shimmering golden taupe
♦ Suede – shimmering golden bronze
When deciding on whether to use a cream or powder eye shadow, take into consideration factors such as your age and skin type. Powder eye shadows that contain shimmers may settle in wrinkles, fine lines and/or sagging eye lids. Cream shadow is a better option for women of age as they will create a smooth base. If you have very oily skin, using a cream eyeshadow can be frustrating. When combined with your skin’s natural oils, the eyeshadow may quickly smear or seep into the crease. This is an easy fix – as cream eyeshadows can also be used as primers. First apply your favorite cream eyeshadow then set with a powder or powder eyeshadow to absorb excess oil. Not only with the color last and last – but mixing these textures reveals beautiful dimension and light-reflecting properties.
All Jouer products offer a smart packaging solution. Constructed with interlocking sides, every product from lip gloss to face powder “snap-together,” making it easy to mix and match your favorites into the perfect palette.
I am currently having a small love affair with Jouer Cosmetics. Quality formulas, wearable colors and intelligent packaging – what more could you ask for. More reviews to come.
