Paul & Joe Color Powder CS in Inseparables

I've revisited the Paul & Joe counter many times since I first wrote up their fall collection (link here), and it is a testament to my recent exercise in restraint that I caved for only one of the Color Powder CS, in Inseparables

Doesn't that swatch picture surprise you? When I first saw the color I didn't think I could pull it off at all. I thought it would turn out to be a light peach-apricot, but when combined the blush became coral. Not all corals look good on me, but this one does its job wonderfully.

Eyes: Suqqu Kakitsubata; Lips: RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Rapture

Inseparables is super pigmented. I suggest a light hand when picking up the color, otherwise you'll spend a lot of time blending it out on your cheeks. I can't reliably comment on wear time since I'm a serial face toucher, but from what I remember most of it stayed on throughout the day. 

For your own, contact Caroline or Alex at the Paul & Joe counter at Bergdorf Goodman. 212.872.8648. Paul & Joe is also available at Beauty Habit


  1. You look very runway-esque. I could definitely see you walkin it :)

  2. so, when are we going to see a write up on the RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek color that keeps showing up????

  3. I love your hair. Would you actually wear it out like that (semi-tucked into your turtleneck) or is it just for the glamour shots? I would love to wear my hair like yours out in public but it might be too much? Thoughts?

  4. I love them and I hate them. I say I hate them only because their packaging is so amazing and so cute that I just wouldn't be able to use the products so I don't buy it. :(

  5. gorgeous! i always love your photos!

  6. This color is gorgeous on you--so so SO pretty! I haven't tried anything from Paul&Joe yet, but I definitely need this in my life!

  7. you look GORGEOUS!!! love the hair, the make up, the pose....:)

  8. More info on the lovely turtleneck please!

  9. PP- Thanks, C!

    X- Ahahah I wish :)

    Erin- very soon!

    Anonymous- I would love to, I really would. I just don't think it'll be very feasible. If I turn my head my hair will come out :(

    Gui- Aww I understand. The one good thing about Paul & Joe stuff is the outside packaging is unique, unlike some where only the inside pattern looks good, so at least I have something left :)

    Rainy Days and Lattes- Thanks!

    Niki- Thank you, Niki!

    Becca- Try this! It's super flattering.

    λειντι ντι - Thanks :)

    Trish- I bought it last year at Club Monaco. I don't think it's available anymore though.

  10. Posts like this make me jealous that makeup brands like these aren't available in my country! I love this color on you though, and the RMS Lip2Cheek is so pretty on you!

  11. Ooh, I love that lip colour. Could you do a post on your RMS Beauty items sometime? I'm curious about the brand but there are so few reviews around.

  12. Oh, what a gorgeous cheek duo! I'm not usually much for peaches (or apricots, and sometimes even corals), but I think I'll have to check this one out.

    Lovely :)

  13. Wandz, you wreak havoc on my wallet. I ordered this Paul and Joe blush yesterday and their 304 lipstick this morning.

    P.S. I started using the Shu Muroto Shampoo & Conditioner and I love it.

  14. threetiis- I'm sorry to hear that :( RMS is available on though!

    Anna- it's coming soon!

    Rae- It will look so pretty on you! And I can just see you doing mini flails all over the packaging

    Angela- ;) The Shu hair stuff is amazing, isn't it!?

  15. just discovered you through glitter geek. i love this makeup look! you are stunning. x


  16. That looks very pretty on you. Could you say a bit more about the texture and finish (mat, shimmer, level of sheen compared to some other blushes, etc.)?

  17. Anne- thanks!

    Anonymous- Ah, I should have remembered that. It's not matte but only slightly shimmery to give depth to your blush. Similar, but has less of a sheen compared to Benefit Coralista.

  18. lovely, lovely look - i love it all from the sweater, to your hair, and of course the blush. :) your blog is such a pleasure to read!
