20 Years of Paul & Joe

Paul & Joe 20th Anniversary makeup collection review

Paul & Joe are never ones to disappoint, so it was no surprise that I squealed when I opened up the gorgeous Paul & Joe 20th Anniversary Makeup Collection* when it arrived. Masters of beautifully thought out, wonderful packaged and truly great products, Paul & Joe have done themselves proud with this set.

Released to celebrate their 20th fashion anniversary, we have a wonderfully cat themed collection and some of Paul & Joe's most iconic and loved beauty products from the last 20 years. There's the quirky little cat head, printed in the 20th anniversary chrysanthemum and flamingo print, which when turned inside out, reveals a really good sized tote bag. Practical and beautiful it is too, which appeases the cat lover in me!

The Paul & Joe 20th Anniversary Makeup Collection also includes a really decent sized makeup bag with a gold clasp that has the most satisfying click to it - I don't know why but that really makes me happy! It comes in the most beautiful hummingbird print which I believe dates back to a 2006 collection, and inside there's a really dinky little pouch for keeping hair grips or coins in.

Let's not forget the makeup, after all, that's what the Paul & Joe 20th Anniversary Makeup Collection is really about. Bringing back some very popular blasts from Paul & Joe's past, let's start with Lipstick A. Housed in a panther print tube is a coral pink lipstick which originally made its debut in 2004. Not too matte, not too satin, this is a really flattering shade to wear which suits most skin tones. Perfect for paired back lazy makeup days, this is my favourite makeup item in the collection.

Of course, there's kitties in the collection - it wouldn't be Paul & Joe otherwise! Housed in kitty print is the perfect companion to the lipstick, Face Color A. Hailing back to 2005, this is a multi-purpose product that's suitable for cheeks as well as eyes, as it has a hint of shimmer which is oh so flattering. The coral shade is gives my pale skin and the most pretty flush of colour.

Last up is Pressed Compact Duo A, which was part of Paul & Joe's 10th anniversary collection.With a wonderful floral design on the lid of the compact, inside it houses a face powder with a crescent of the most beautiful highlighter. Both powders are very finely milled, and whether applied individually or mixed together they make my complexion look airbrushed and set base makeup perfectly.

This is such an amazing collection from Paul & Joe, they really do know how to put beautiful products together. I love the prints and the chrysanthemum embossing which features on every piece of makeup in the collection is a lovely touch. Truly beautiful.

Will you be picking this up?
