As always I fell in love with the Paul & Joe Summer collection, A Midsummer’s Night Dream and wanted pretty much everything in it. I received and wrote about the very pretty Love Potion lip gloss. Since then I’ve received another couple of items as PR Samples and bought several bits myself so here’a picture heavy look at them all.
Starting with Pixie Nail Enamel £10.50. Holographic Silver Glitter, pictures do it no justice. This is so pretty and it wears very well. Gorgeous on its own and equally pretty as a layering polish, it is fairly opaque though, two coats ensure it’s fully opaque.
A Midsummer’s Night Sparkling Pressed Powder £22. A stunning powder, Paul & Joe do pressed powders extremely extremely well and this is no exception. It’s incredibly beautiful but please be warned, it is also incredibly glittery.
When you blend the powders together what you get is translucent but extremely glittery, you may have to enlarge this to see how glittery it really is.
Stunning product but definitely one to avoid if you are not into glitter, and definitely for evenings only. And possibly not if you’re old, like me. I don’t care, mutton is how I like to dress these days!
Face Colour G in Nubile and Faune £15 each. There is a further blush shade called Nymph which is a pink, but what really caught my eye with these two shades was the possibilities for sculpting and shaping the cheek, they are gorgeous, beautifully pigmented and they work together extremely well indeed. They aren’t matte or shimmery, they just have a satin feel.
Shimmery Body Lotion £24. Not so much as a body lotion as a lightly moisturising gel with some very pretty glitter. Again, I’d say, possibly not one for daytime unless you’re 14, but very pretty indeed for hot Summer nights and definitely one for the suitcase if you’re off on holiday. Such a pretty product. Also very lightly scented, I can’t quite pinpoint what the scent is, it’s just fresh and light.
What a pretty collection, entirely in keeping with the collection title, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, all glittery and fairy like. I’ve still got my eye on the single shadows released with the collection so we’ll have to see what I’ve got left in the way of funds and if there’s any stock left when I do!
The collection is available from one of my favourite retailers, Beauty Bay. Check it out!
