*Stocking Stuffer Idea- Paul & Joe Beaute Lipstick Review

I am a big fan of Paul & Joe cosmetics. Their products are high quality and look great both on and in, their totally unique packaging. The brand's philosophy is "fun-loving sophistication" and that is exactly what I think of when viewing their collection. They are regularly coming out with limited edition products, they are more then just makeup, these products are artful and will look beautiful on your vanity table.

I was recently sent a lipstick from their 2014 Fall Collection for review.

These lipsticks come in 25 shades and in sheer and glossy or full coverage wear. I was sent a full coverage lipstick in in Picnic " a happy , punchy pink to liven any day". I love this shade, it is playful and bright and leaves your lips feeling smooth. It is more of a matte color for those that don't want a glossy lip. The cool thing about these lipsticks is they are a refill. They are meant to go inside one of Paul & Joe's lovely lipstick cases.

These limited edition cases come in a variety of prints to fit your style and mood. The above cases are just a sample of the different designs. You can check out others on their website. I was sent the "wildflowers" lipstick case pictured bottom row in between the pretty birds and adorable kitty's. I love all the cases and so will you and all your friends who will ask you where you got your lipstick.

These lipstick refills and limited edition cases would make a great stocking stuffer for any girly girl. Husbands and boyfriends out there, your girl will never expect that you would fill their stocking with these beauties, but they will love you for it.
