Paul & Joe LE Pressed Powders

Some Cozycot members may remember that in around March 2005, there was a board craze for P&J's so-called 'Lollipop' pressed face powder which had swirls of pink and yellow that apparently gave a gorgeous finish. I don't own it personally but I think the new limited edition Pressed Powder #5 Sunset with yellow and light purple is an excellent replacement for it. I tested it at the counter yesterday and the face powder gives a very soft, glowy finish. The shimmer in the powder is very fine and delicate, so it won't make you look like a disco ball. The yellow and purple shades actually look very similar to each other once applied and I couldn't tell the difference.

The #4 Villa in bronze and light blue is more useful for those looking for a bronzing powder for that tan, healthy glow. The brown shade is a light tan shade that will suit even very fair skin tones but probably won't show up well on dark skin tones. The light blue shade provides quite the opposite effect of making skin appear slightly paler and more luminous. The shimmer in this is also very fine and delicate. These are due out in Japan on 1 June. Ok, I think these are going on my shopping list :-)
