Paul & Joe Face & Eye Color CS 067 Silvery Moon

Paul & Joe Face & Eye Color CS 067 Silvery Moon is my favourite out of the three Face & Eye Colors in the fall collection. With five well-pigmented shades, it is easy to create a variety of looks with this. The shades also contrast much better with one another than the Face & Eye Color CS 069 Blue Moon.

At S$49, it is certainly not cheap but you do get a very generous 7.7g of product. (For comparison, MAC's single eyeshadows are 1.5g each.) And it's still much more affordable compared to a Chanel or Dior palette, or even MAC's eyeshadow quads which are S$65. The cardboard packaging is certainly not the most sturdy but still, I love the whimsical prints on these.

For this look, I used the silver shade at the inner corners and along the lower lashline, the olive shade from the upper lashline to the crease, the midnight blue shade at the outer corners of the upper and lower eyelids and the gold shade over the browbone area.

All the shades blended very well and had an elegant refined shimmer and texture.

You can see swatches of all the three Face & Eye Colors and three Lipsticks CS in this post.

For the rest of the look, I used: Shiseido Refining Makeup Primer, Automatic Fine Eyeliner BK901 and Nourishing Mascara Base, Dior X4 Control Compact Foundation 012, RMK Super Basic Liquid Concealer EX01, Paul & Joe Face Color 07, Lipstick C 067 and Loose Powder, and K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 01.

The eyeshadows lasted very well on me over 11 hours of wear. You can still find this collection in stock at the various Paul & Joe counters although some shades may have sold out.

Have a good weekend ahead, everyone!

I tried swatching them at ALT yesterday and found them to be slightly sheer? But i did grab a lip gloss, single eyeshadow and the blue Alice in Wonderland set :)

hi Lynn,
I used them over an eyeshadow base, so the colour payoff was pretty good. They are not crazily intense for sure, but what I liked about it is the refined shimmer.

Lovely look of the day. I have never tried Paul & Joe makeup before.

Have a good weekend!

Metro Paragon does not carry Paul & Joe. In Orchard Road, Paul and Joe is at Isetan Scotts and Orchard, Takashimaya and ALT in Heeren. There is also a counter at Bugis Junction.

Thanks for the tip! I get what you mean by "refined" looks nicely, but not overkill!
