I have a primer and powder from Paul & Joe to share with everyone today. I have seen this brand around with its super cute packing and items but have yet to try any. I was excited to get my hands on some face products from them since I have a huge foundation/face product junkie!
First up we have the Paul & Joe Moisturizing Foundation Primer in 02. 02 corrects uneven skin color and makes skin look natural and fresh for people with warm light to medium skin tones. The packing looks and feels very luxurious, its glass! This retails for $36. This has a very thin consistency and a mild scent (a good one!). It feels more like a lotion than a primer, which is probably a good thing since this is a moisturizing primer! I could see it making my dry spots disappear but it did not cover my huge pores. I ended up using another primer to hide my pores more the next time I used it. If you do not have huge pores, you could definitely just use it on its own! I like using this primer on days where my skin is drier or the day after I do a peel on my face.
Next I have the Paul & Joe Beauté Pressed Powder in 05 Natural Beige. This retails for $33 and creates a soft, dewy finish. Also note, pictured below is just the refill. This pressed powder is also formulated with sebum absorbing powder to prevent the skin from becoming shiny over time and leaving skin with a long-lasting beautiful veil of sheer coverage. I use this powder as a setting powder after my liquid foundations. Its a little bit lighter than me, I like the highlighting effect it gives on me. I am very oily and usually do not like anything that makes me look dewy. This however, doesn’t really give me a “dewy” look but more of a “soft” finish which I actually like. I really do think the sebum absorbing properties help with that!
My first experience with Paul & Joe was pretty positive. Even though I have to use another primer to hide my pores, I have been using these items daily in my routine! Have you tried any of their products before? Which ones?!
