Almost too pretty to use, the PAUL & JOE beauty line was created and developed by Parisian owner and designer, Sophie Mechaly, who named the brand after her two sons, Paul and Joe. But don’t let the gorgeous packaging fool you – the skincare care and makeup are all luxurious, high-performance products starting with the new body oil and body cream which use natural olive oil — derived from centuries-old olive trees — to moisturize the skin, leaving it with a beautiful glow. (We use the oil right out of the shower and it soaks right in, until like many oils.) In fact, Mechaly says the new oil and cream were inspired by the Mediterranean.
Paul &Joe’s Pressed Face Powder — refillable so you can put it in one of their gorgeous compacts — creates a soft, dewy finish and is small enough so you can carry it all day for touch-ups. Instead of a cakey look, the base uses fine-textured, translucent powder made up of small-sized particles so it looks like you’re not wearing any makeup at all. Available in six shades and all are SPF 15. ($23. for refill.)
Their insanely popular Pearl lipstick in the trademark cat shape adds a jewelry-like sparkle to the lips. Worn by itself or over your favorite color, it makes your lips so luscious and dare we say, younger looking? It’s so hydrating we use it instead of lip balm! ($25 for a refill but note it only fits in a Paul & Joe case.)
