Paul & Joe Powder Compact Foundation

Paul & Joe are not only one of my favourite beauty brands but are the home of my Holy Grail of powder make up.

Sophie Mechaly, a french designer started the men's fashion brand 'Paul  & Joe' after her two sons and, in 2002 Sophie launched 'Paul & Joe Beaute'   

Sophie says  'every product possess luxurious texture and colour that makes each application a pleasure for the skin

I love this brand and what it is about.  

This compact is luxury in your hand and I adore it.  

I have particularly pale skin and the powder sits flawlessly and fuses perfectly with my foundation.  This shade is 100 which is one of the/if not the lightest shade.    

I would describe this powder as light, pretty and versatile.  I would use this everyday if I could but it is £26 so I tend to save it for the weekends as I could not afford to replace it every other month.  I do not object to paying so much for a compact that I trust to be good however, I will not replace my holy grail Loreal Perfect Match for every day because it is so much cheaper to replace. 

The packaging is stunning, I love the signature floral motif on the front - it is also featured within the powder but after one or two applications it soon fades unfortunately.  

I own a few pieces from Paul & Joe which I will review separately. 

It is a weekend treat.
