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.

Rediscovered Rouge: NARS Madly

※※※

While cleaning out my makeup collection I rediscovered NARS Blush in Madly. Described as a “warm soft-focus seashell pink,” in the pan – it appears very light and uninteresting. However, when applied, it creates a warm rosy/brown glow that instantly warms the complexion – any complexion. Madly works on all skin tones.

The finely-milled powder has excellent pay-off – like most NARS Blush. It is pigmented yet buildable. There is a subtle shimmer running through the formula, but it wears as a sheen rather than sparkle. It does not emphasize pores or imperfections and can look very natural.

Applied with a heavy hand, Madly can create a radiant bronzed look. Applied with a light hand, Maldly can create a soft romantic glow.
