A Stroll In The Park | Autumn 16 By Paul & Joe

My love for Paul & Joe Beauté just keeps getting stronger and their latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 is utterly swoon worthy. This season they've created a whole host of pretty products, from Eyebrow Powders to pretty Hand Creams, they have it all. The collection has been inspired by nature in the Autumn months, using earthy colours and pretty prints to bring the products to life. In today's blog post I wanted to walk you through three of their latest, lovely products!

First up we have the limited edition 'Eye Colour CS' pots, which are available in three shade combinations. These little cardboard pots are decorated in pretty autumnal colours and when you lift the lid, you find three eyeshadow colours. Paul & Joe say the colours in the pots are inspired by the falling leaves in Autumn and the colours you find on the group as the leaves change colour. I have the shade September Song* (£17), which has a light pink, a lovely blush hue and a rich chocolate brown. The formula of the eyeshadows is created with Jojoba Oil, which helps the pigment of the eyeshadows to stick to the eyelids. A mixture of Orange Flower water, Rosa Roxburghu and White Lily, create a hydrating, creamy eyeshadow - swatching them is a dreamy experience. 

Next in the collection we have three pretty lipsticks and three lovely lipstick cases. Each of the lipstick shades in this collection are designed to warm up the complexion. Offering deeper tones which are perfect for adding a little pop of colour! The shade I have is Snuggle Up* (£14) which is a pretty nude, it's packaged inside the September Song Lipstick Case* (£7), which features curvy shades in purple, pink, cream and teal hues. The lipstick is created with Cocoa Seed Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil and Lavender Oil, which gives the lipstick a glossy finish.

Finally we have the Paul & Joe Waterbroof Eyebrow Liner* (£17), which is available in three different shades (Grey, Brown and Marron). These Eyebrow Liners are incredibly fine pencils, which you can use to create bold, natural eyebrows. To use these you simply twist up a teeny amount of the pencil and draw lines into the eyebrow. It's actually a very hard formula, which takes a bit of getting used to, but you can quickly get into the swing of things. Just like the other products in this collection, the eyebrow liner is created with Jojoba and Sunflower Seed Oil, which help the product stick to the skin. 

In the swatches above we have Snuggle Up lipstick on the top, followed by the three eyeshadows from the eyeshadow trio. You can pick up these products from various retailers, including ASOS and Selfridges.
