Lipstick Love: Café Parisien by Paul & Joe (AKA the cutest lipstick on the block)

Paul and Joe lipstick WGSN Theresa Yee

I’m a real sucker for cute make-up packaging. So when this Paul & Joe lipstick landed on my desk, I knew it was an instant winner.

This week’s lipstick love is this adorable new lipstick from the brand’s fall make-up collection. Café Parisien comes in a pretty candy pink hue stamped with the most adorable cat face in a milky beige tone. Cute, right?!

But, what we love about this product is that the kitten’s face doesn’t disappear after a couple of applications. Instead, the brand has used a clever Japanese candy-making technique to ensure that the cat is visible all the way down to the bottom of the bullet.

We recommend using the two colours together to create a soft gradient effect on the lip. The light, moisturising texture melts on the mouth like a creamy balm so perfect for dry pouts.
