[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] This is so what I needed to see on a rainy January morning – the Paul & Joe spring collection. I’ve got everything so will roll out by category next week, but I’m starting with the Gel Blushes because it’s a product that this brand excels at.
Texturally, these could not be more pleasing. They feel cool to the touch because of the high water content – 80% I believe – which also allows for the translucency and ‘second skin’ finish.
I’d be reluctant to throw away the pot after the blush was finished – I’m sure I’d have to find another use for it! This type of blush is so easy to use – always go lightly at first because it’s easily buildable if you need a bit more flush. They’re perfect for the current trend of natural and bare skin because as soon as it’s on your skin it looks and feels like it’s meant to be there.
The finish on the top of the blushes makes them look like they’re going to be powder because it’s slightly textured from the presser (technical term!). The first one is Cerise (not yet in stock but by some miracle, the other two are), the second is Lumiere Douce which is an absolute godsend for anyone with a very pale complexion because it gives the barest of pink touches without looking too much, and Bavarder, which is described as a berry pink but to my eye has more of a coral tone.
