Last week I popped down to Selfridges for afternoon tea and a shop with some of my favourite ladies! I'm completely in love with the new beauty section in Selfridges (opposite confectionery). It's full of various brands that don't have an actual counter so had previously not been accommodated in the main beauty hall. It's well worth a visit! While there I stumbled upon the Paul & Joe section and discovered that they've released some limited edition products to celebrate their 10 year anniversary including 3 blushers.
I wanted all 3 but eventually settled on Inseparables - it seems I just can't get enough of peach toned blushers! My second option definitely would have been True Love though. I'm head over heels in love with all their vintage style packaging which is definitely what drew me in in the first place as am not that familiar with Paul & Joe cosmetics. It's safe to say they've got themselves a new fan now though!
In addition to being my favourite shade out of the 3 option available, Inseparables also featured my favourite packaging design! Pink with pelicans? Total win. My only complaint is that the pots are rather small and at £20 I feel they could have been a little bigger. Perhaps remove the little brush, as soft & cute as it is, we all know they're rarely ever used! I'd rather the additional cost spent on a brush be used to increase the circumference of the product that way my own blush brush would be able to fit in it easily with room to swirl!
I love that the blush pots include 2 colours which can be used separately or swirled together and that one is slightly more matte and the other has a bit more shimmer to it. In this case, the shimmery shade is the central peach colour and the outer pink colour is matte. The 2 lovebirds imprinted into the blush adds the perfect finishing touch!
As for the colour, it's a gorgeous peachy pink shade and not as light as you might initially think as the pink really adds some depth to the colour. In my opinion it has the perfect amount of shimmer to it. The product is also really pigmented which although may mean you have to be careful with application it so means it'll last much longer which is never a bad thing!
If you've got any Paul & Joe products that you'd recommend I'd love to know! I'd happily buy all 3 of these blushers as I they're well worth the money as a lot of thought has clearly gone into each element of the product bu then again, the idea of spending £60 on blusher is a bit of a reality check. Although, maybe if I bought like 1 a month? I'm sure that wouldn't seem so bad...would it? On second thoughts, better not answer that.
