And now for the part you have all been waiting for! Here are a few things from new Fairytale collection, swatched and close up for your viewing pleasure…
The Far, Far Away Lipstick is quite deceiving. On first impressions I was expecting a pale pink, nude lipstick, but this is so much more. Far, Far Away is a sheer lipstick with only a hint of colour. Its your lips, with sparkle and princess beauty – but better. I found this lipstick looked stunning alone, but also worked well over the top of other lipsticks to give them a little royal perfection too!
Being so sheer on the lips means I am more likely to wear this shade than the others in the Fairytale Collection. It was also really moisturising on my lips and will be perfect for nights out when I don’t want to have to keep retouching them as it lasted well too.
The Eye Colour Set in Princess I received totally blew me away. It wasn’t what I was expecting at all. Paul & Joe have a way of always meeting my expectations and then giving a little more and that’s exactly how I felt about Princess (085). The pink cream base eyeshadow glides on effortlessly. It is so soft but pigmented, it doesn’t feel like you are even applying anything! The pressed eye shadow shade again was very pigmented and really blendable. Being a lavender shade is really bought out my blue eyes. But, I am saving the best for last… What I really fell in love with was the gold pigmented loose powder! This product can be packed on to give a solid gold glitter (With a wet flat eyeshadow brush), or you can use it to add some subtle shimmer. I even use a small amount in my inner corners of my eye and boy did they look amazing! This eye set is without a doubt perfect for the party season, or just when you feel like being a little glamorous – after all, we all deserve to feel like a Princess some of the time!
