I thought I ought to be posting this because the fall 2011 collection will be released soon! I have had this for a while now and if you go through my FOTDs, you will notice that I tend to use this eyeshadow a lot.
Paul & Joe's signature elegant compact/case/packaging in baby blue.
SRP - 1,250.00 Php
Some people might be put off by the tag prize but it just depends on one's preference. :) I only picked out the one I thought I would use the most. The other colors from the 2011 summer collection are Blue and Lavander.
I messed up the swirly pattern. :3
The pattern goes on till the bottom of the pan but it will get mixed and messed up with the constant use.
Paul & Joe Eye Color B in 003 Tranquility
Browns, gold, and yellows blend for a calm, cool, and casual effect.
While it is recommended to swirl the applicator to get all the colors to blend together, I am sometimes guilty of just swiping it.(Hello laziness!) When the colors are blended together, it produces a taupe color which is more brown than it is grey. It has gold micro-shimmers which gives it a multi dimensional effect.
I tried to swatch all the colors. :)
Swatched. All the 3 colors blended together in one swipe.
This is a more accurate swatch of the color.
Please note that colors may appear different due to the lighting.
I will be honest and say that I don't own many single eyeshadows as I prefer eyeshadow palettes that cater to my needs when it comes to eye makeup but well... I couldn't resist the swirly pattern! LOL! Kidding aside, I really like the color of this eyeshadow once it is applied on the skin.
It blends quite well and glides on quite easily although the texture isn't as creamy as some high end eyeshadows. But all that should matter is the application which I never had a problem with. I have applied this with brushes, my fingers and my sponge and the color payoff is great.
Fall out is tolerable. I suspect that this has something to do with the micro-shimmers but it isn't something that I would get bothered about as I have seen eyeshadows with more fall out. It does have micro shimmers. Please note that the shimmers won't make your eye look like a disco ball and is safe enough to be worn out for daytime looks.
It does not crease nor fades on my eyes but I don't have oily eyelids and always use a primer or base before I apply my eyeshadows.
Overall, I'm glad I purchased this product and am excited for the fall collection!!! <3
