Paul & Joe’s sale items are usually past limited-edition items, discontinued (replaced) products, soon-to-be-discontinued products, and overstock. For this winter sale, many Lipstick N shades and Face Color variations were on sale, since the new lipstick lineup was released in fall 2012 and the new range of blushers (Cheek Color) will be launched soon as part of the brand’s spring 2013 makeup collection.
Here are the items I got from the sale:
- Lipstick N in 17 (£7.50 from £15): a moderately pigmented low-key beige rose with no shimmer. The Lipstick N range was released in spring 2007 to replace the previous range. Twenty-five shades were launched at the time, and 17 is one of them.
- Face Color in 07 (£7.75 from £15.50): a combination of candy pink and light beige. Both shades are shimmery. Paul & Joe revamped its blusher range in spring 2007 and 07 is one of the original seven variations released at the time. More variations were released over the years, and the upcoming Cheek Color will replace this range.
- Self Select Eye Color in 02 (£6.25 from £12.50): a medium-depth golden brown with pearly shimmer. Self Select Eye Color was released in spring 2010 and 02 is one of the twenty-five shades released at the time.
- Self Select Eye Color in 08 (£6.25 from £12.50): a dark navy blue with a velvety finish and sparse fine sparkles. It is also one of the twenty-five Self Select Eye Colors released in spring 2010.
Self Select Eye Colors fit into Eye Color Palette, which is sold separately. It holds three Self Select Eye Colors and comes with a double-ended applicator.
