In my opinion, Paul & Joe really stands out when it comes to packaging. The combination of orange, cream, brown, turquoise and flower print is very enticing.

Here are the products included in the collection:

Paul & Joe,Sahara Collection

Paul & Joe Finishing Powder
  • Prevents oily shine. Creates a natural shiny semi-matte skin finish without a powdery look.
  • Adheres to the skin. Stays on even after perspiring.
  • Keep skin dry with a soft, fluffy touch.
  • Sublime radiant glow and translucent finish whenever you want.
2 Shades available: DUNE Natural Beige and DESERT SAND Healthy medium beige

I also had a makeover during my visit. Here's a photo with Anton, Paul & Joe make-up artist. He used the Coral Pink lipstick on me. Isn't it lovely? The other 2 shades in the collection are pretty as well.

I was also reminded of what made me fall in love with Paul & Joe two years ago with this makeover. Their foundations are to die for. The one Anton used covered all my post pregnancy facial flaws even without concealer.

With Ms. Maan Perez, Brand Executive for Paul & Joe Philippines. Thank you so much for the invite!

If asked what's my favorite in the collection? I'd say...the Shimmering Body Lotion. I love its light and refreshing scent plus the cooling effect after application so much. The shimmers are not overpowering making the skin looks glowing instead.

How about you? Did you find the Sahara Collection interesting?

Hi Maria,
Thanks for visiting. Yes they're pricey but still cheaper compared to the other Japanese brands. Quality is good. IMHO, if a product works for you, it's worth the investment :)
