Paul & Joe Beaute #4 Lip Lacquer

Paul & Joe Beaute Tenderness (#4) Lip Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.13 ml) is a beige-peach with surprisingly opaque coverage.  It has no shimmer but lots of glossiness–it has the pigmentation of a lipstick but the cushy feel of a gloss.  I love that despite it’s creaminess it doesn’t emphasize lip lines like some creamier shades do.  I’m also really impressed by the coverage.The packaging is cute from the box it comes in to the tube itself, and it’s easy to apply on the go, so it may become a shade I keep in my bag to have a go-to color (can you believe that I have absolutely no lipstick or lipgloss in my purse?).  I couldn’t really detect any scent, maybe the faintest sweet fruit aroma, but I really couldn’t tell.

    I cannot agree with you more on your review. This is my favorite gloss and I think I don’t wear it often just so I can preserve it due to lack of P&J products here in SF. I keep thinking about putting in an order for more colors – will you be reviewing more colors?? I hope so. My favorite btw is #10 – it’s more of a plum brown.

  7. This lipgloss makes it look like you have got dark grey dots and streaks on your lips :/

    i absolutely love it. but do you think it is the perfect coral colour for a dark skin person. I am an NW45 in mac foundation. please i need a perfect coral color for people of my skin tone. i love your website and go on it everyday, but sometimes i find it hard to know what will look good on my lips and skin color.

    I love the way this looks on you and ordered it from Dermstore yesterday based on your photos and recommendation. I really like a heavily pigmented lipgloss (since I don’t have to wear a lipstick underneath) and am looking forward to trying it out. Thanks for your blog; I can’t take you how much money I’ve both saved and spent based on your swatches.

    Can you think of any dupes of this color? It is so inspiring haha. I always look at it and think about a vintage look
