Askmewhats Reviews: Paul & Joe Face Color Autumn 2007



Available at Paul & Joe Rustan's Makati for Php1,150.00 (approx USD27.00)

The first time yours truly tried on this limited edition face color is when I modeled for my friend's make-up class for the Modern 90's look. The first swipe she did on my cheeks, There's a big O forming from my mouth! I HAVE to get this! And I did!

Paul & Joe Says ---

An exquisite gradation, created by blending two different shades together, this face color brings out each individual's inherent natural color and contours.


Askmewhats Says and Shows ---




When swatched, this looks too orange-y and bright! But when you use a blush brush and swipe just once, you can see the sudden "flush" (nice kind) on your cheeks. For my photo below, I swiped 2-3times each cheek, just to show everyone how to color is! hahaha



Askmewhats Tips ---

  1. Take desired amount onto brush and pat it a bit on your hand first before brushing it on your face to create a softer more natural look.
  2. You can use the lighter portion as eyes highlighter and use the darker orange as eyeshadow (if you really plan on using orange e/s) --- triple purpose!
  3. If I find this at times too overpowering, I would put on a bit of loose powder before swiping the face color with a brush, and lightly swipe it on my cheeks for that really brightening effect :)
  4. Some people may find this too "orange", aside from my liking of mixing lipstick with a concealer (as seen here), I also mix my blushes, I mix a lighter peach toned blush or if you don't have a lighter blush, do the tip #3
Will I repurchase?
Yes! Different colors!

How'd you like it? Do you think it looks too orange for you?

Your askmewhats,
Nikki

    Lurve, hmm...I bought mine here in Rustan's Makati. In the US? Hmm...I've checked Sephora, they carry Paul & Joe products I'm just not sure if the Autumn 2007 edition would still be there.
