In the states the Paul and Joe brand is pretty unknown. That is probably why there is only one registered counter in the the country. NYC's Bergforf's counter.
I am too lazy of a person to travel uptown every time I want to check put some of their products -which is why I am sooo thankful to live in an area with their own P&J counter from my very own neighborhood.
I have been meaning to get a few of these items for some time. Especially the nail polish which is from their limited edition summer collection.
The gold and pink flecks are so pretty!
(Nail polishes: back pink in shade 10, pink sparkle shade in 003 and gold sparkle shade in 002)
I grabbed a cream eye shadow along with a peachy sparkly lip gloss. The gloss on my lips look so sparkly! but both shades will look great for summer. So fresh and clean looking.
(Eye gloss in 02 and the gloss is in 04. )
The last item I got was a mauve compact face powder in 04. I had read from multiple reviews that the mauve coloring is excellent against my yellow skin tone. I had heard it is very light and brightening.
It has some slight shimmer to it and smells so refreshing like oranges!
The compact comes in the signature pink etching design from most P&J stuff. I love it! so girly!
After leaving I had decided I wanted to try to find from the Face Shop the "Real Secret" Shimmer cream. I had read that this was an item that gave Korean actresses that luminous glow that was highlighted all over their face giving them a dewy finish after their perfect complexion.
Under normal lighting I dont see much of a difference but out in the sun there is a definite glow upon my face. Makes you look glowy, but you have to be careful, too much application can be mistaken for grease... I dont see much shimmer even though it is a shimmer lotion.
Hopefully all these items will be used without regret of purchase. Most of them seem excellent for summer!
On a side note, I had gone out to a gf's birthday dinner last night and ate Thai and sang ktv for hours Thankfully today is no work for Memorial day so I cant wait to relax! =D
Looks good right?
This restaurant was not bad but I doubt I'm going back, too lazy to go to Chelsea to just eat noodles.
