The Paul & Joe Beaute Spring 2015 collection might be one of the cutest ones I have seen in quite awhile.
This new limited edition collection features three Face & Eye Color palettes and three lipstick shades inspired by animal friends of the menagerie. The colors represent some of the most elegant creatures on the planet including flamingos, giraffes and elephants. Each of the Face and Eye Color palettes are divided into four colors. They are embossed with a hippopotamus (the accent color), a cat (eye color), a swan (highlight color) and an elephant (cheek and eye color). So freaking cute!
The lipsticks each come with a limited edition case (sold separately) with three different animal prints on them including giraffes amongst parrots, monkeys playing in flowers and various colored felines against white. Please note they didn’t send me any of the cases (mine were just refills) so I don’t have them to show you. The lipsticks are very moisturizing and contain jojoba seed oil, lavender oil, orange flower water, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter and white lily extract.
The first shade (hippo) is a very pale slightly shimmery yellow.
The second shade (swan) is a pale shimmery champagne.
The third shade (elephant) is an intense shimmery orange.
The fourth shade (cat) is a reddish/brown shimmer.
The first shade (hippo) is a shimmery pale blue.
The second shade (swan) is a light shimmery white.
The third shade (elephant) is a light shimmery pink.
The fourth shade (cat) is a medium shimmery plum/taupe.
Menagerie is a medium coral.
Canari is a medium pink/coral.
Ok are these palettes adorable or what? I could barely bring myself to swatch them. I feel like the shades are a little more pigmented in the Elepanteau palette than the Girafe one and I am more drawn to them because they are cool-toned. I do love the outside of the Girafe packaging more though. The lipsticks are really nice. They are creamy, shiny and buildable. Both are fun spring shades.
These can be found at BeautyHabit starting this month. The Face and Eye Colors are $39.00, the lipsticks are $20.00 and the lipstick cases are $7.00.
Are you going to go for any of these? Mainly for the packaging, colors or both?
