I have been hooked on Paul & Joe items recently. Which has caused me to start re-watching ALL of Fuzkittie's makeup videos. Sigh......... I don't have a life right?
Paul and Joe offers a variety of makeup, skincare and truthfully their prices are quite reasonable. :) For people like me, who love to buy things when they are on sale. You can check out Beauty Closet right now because their eye glosses in 01 and 04 are on SALE ^.^ I also have a free shipping code: free4me
The downside is that if you live in California, you still have to pay tax.....
Gorgeous box Eh?
Paul & Joe Eyegloss in Halo is seriously the only item to this day that I have felt was LARGER than I had imagined. I was also excepting a pinker color, but its a good thing that it turned out to be a nice elegant, whitish, frosty pink (nice color combo right?)
For those who have heard that these dry quickly, it is true! Upon one swipe across the eyelids, you have to blend it quickly~
Would be a very good base~
I created a smokey eye look and guess what? the Paul & Joe's elegant shimmers are still very noticeable. If you are in a hurry and need to dash out the door quickly, this eyegloss would definitely become your new best friend! hahaha I feel like I am advertising a product (my bad :P)
FYI for all my eye looks, I never used a eyeshadow primer because I don't have one. :(
Next I opened up my other BB the SKIN 79 one. My first impressions right away was that the packaging was very very pretty and easy to use.
Then I inspected the pump. Ummmmm, truthfully I like to be very sanitary with my makeup and the fact that the pump was designed to not have a cap for the pump kind of bothered me. I really don't want random crap sticking on the pump. :( So I think that the bottle could be improved. Otherwise I am very happy with the packaging. Wait actually another flaw is that how the hell am I suppose to know how much of it I have used already? Ok 2 flaws.... XD
This is a swatch of the Skin 79. A much darker tone which is pretty normal for BB creams to be a tad darker because it will lighten up after you spread it.
CellAlive (left) is a lighter shade with a stronger yellow undertone. The consistency is more flow-ly and liquid-y.
Skin 79 (right) Like mentioned before is darker. It is more like a face cream kind of texture.
They both leave a nice glow to the face. However, I feel like Skin 79 has a better coverage. For example with concealing my under eye circles, it was able to do it better than Cell Alive. Not to mention that CellAlive smells like crap..... O.o (really! it does not smell good at all)
Skin79, in the other hand, reminds me of the floral scent by Paul & Joe. :)
Overall: SKIN 79 WINS THE MATCH!
