Paul & Joe Beaute, created by Parisian Sophie Albou, offers absolutely a gorgeous array of products. The premise of the line is “fun-loving sophistication” and has a modern vintage look to packaging… the kind of items you might find sitting on the vanity of a 1940′s socialite in Paris.

I recently purchased Lipstick C, in 062 (“Opening Night”), from the Spring Collection (limited edition). It’s a gorgeous blushing pink colour and feels like a lip balm. I paid $24 (Canadian) for the lipstick and while that’s a little more on the expensive side, it was definitely worth it. My lips were hydrated and the colour looked completely natural for hours. The tubing is a durable cardboard in lieu of the more traditional plastic case. I think this is my favourite splurge to date. Everything felt luxurious and decadent.

They currently have a Disney collaboration line out right now (think retro Disney – Bambi, Lady and the Tramp & Aristocats) that is adorable. The products include face colour balls, a lip treatment, and a hand cream.

    I love the packaging. If you go to their website they have a background download with the lipstick design for your desktop. I couldn’t find the disney collection.

    Honestly, it’s so pretty I would never use it. There is no Paul and Joe where I am (So sad, I wanted some Disney stuff)

      Depending on your location, most stores will ship. In Canada, the store I bought from will ship within the country. I’m sure other places will do the same…

        Hi! I’m from Canada too, I’ve been trying to find Paul & Joe here but with no luck. I was wondering which website you’ve been buying it off of. Thanks!
