Paul and Joe Makeup Z Palette 003

Hello folks!

I picked up this gorgeous Paul and Joe palette a while back , the packaging was just too cute to pass up on πŸ˜€ If you are familiar with Paul and Joe you would know that they knock it out of the park for cat themed makeup packaging! I love cats ( and dogs too) so this palette just had to come home.

I love that the image is printed on the palette and that it is made of hard plastic. The palette is thin and sturdy, making it ideal for travel. Inside you’ll find 4 eyeshadows and 1 blush. The colors are nothing revolutionary, however if you are like me and enjoy neutral basic eye shadow shades, the palette won’t disappoint.

Inside the Paul and Joe makeup Z palette we have 4 eyeshadows and 1 blush

The first 2 eyeshadows are shimmery lid shades and the last 2 shades are mattes with micro glitters in them. This palette can be used on it’s own and I didn’t feel the need to pull matte shadows from other palettes. The blush is a peachy pink with gold shimmer in it, very much like NARS Orgasm.

The formula is really nice. This is a typical Japanese eyeshadow formula were the pigmentation can be built up and the shadows are very soft. They don’t have that creamy texture which silicone heavy formulas have. They last without fading or creasing on the lid for a full work day.

The only drawback of this palette in my opinion, is the wasted space. I rather have 2 more eyeshadows in place of the 2 mini brushes which many people barely touch. Another thing to note is the fragrance. I personally like the perfume scent of this palette, but if you avoid fragrances in your makeup products this might not be for you.

Overall, I really like this pretty palette. It has shades which are totally up my alley. I do have a video review of this palette with live brushes. check it out below!!

Until next time, ciao!!!

Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy Palette

Hello folks!

When I first saw the Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy palette I was intrigued but didn’t pull the trigger immediately. I’m glad I held out since I later found this beauty at TJ Maxx for a neat price. This is a very warm toned palette and the perfect fall palette in my opinion. I recently discovered that I don’t have too many warm toned palettes in my collection, so this is definitely a happy addition!

I love the cute packaging and the eyeshadows smells faintly of gingerbread. This is not too strong which is good since I did find tickle me peach palette a bit too over powering in scent.

The shadows inside the Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy Palette

There are 7 shimmers and the shade for the Graham is a matte with specks of glitter. The rest of the shades are mattes. I really enjoy Too Faced matte shadows since they are pigmented and easy to blend and the ones in this palette is no exception. The shimmers are also very pigmented and there is no fallout. The shimmers have a very creamy formula which I see in a lot of newer palettes these days. The shadows do not fade and wear well throughout the day.
