EOTD: Paul & Joe Eye Color Palette #002

The Paul & Joe Eye Color Palette #002 was released a few seasons ago. It's a palette that I should use more often as the eyeshadows have a lovely silky texture and excellent colour payoff, but I probably have used it less than 10 times in total. It's always a good idea to shop your stash occasionally to re-discover gems that haven't gotten enough love!

First I brushed the light pearl pink shade from the Paul & Joe palette over the browbone area, followed by the metallic navy along the upper lashline and the blended the pale mint shade from the Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes BL711 palette in the crease and along the lower lashline. Then I finished off with K-Palette Real Lasting Volume mascara.

I love how you applied the liner shade higher up - definitely complements your eye shape.

hi Hazel,
Thank you! The mint shade is very pale on its own so I'm trying it out with other more intense colours as an accent colour.

Hi Janice,
Thank you!

Hi Jojoba,
The Paul & Joe eyeshadows are actually quite pigmented, especially the dark navy shade but it can also be applied as a sheer wash. The MM eyeshadow is more sheer. If you're interested in Japanese makeup, you should also check out Fuzkittie's blog and LotusPalace.

hi miss wiggle,
Thank you!

Really nice mint. Very clean and defined look with the combination. Gonna try it on myself too with other dupes!
