Paul & Joe Lipstick in Cafe Parisien 093

Next up and possibly one of the cutest makeup items I've ever seen, is the Paul & Joe lipstick with a cat center! Let's all just take a minute and adore this super cute cat!

Paul & Joe sells their lipstick cases ($7) and the bullets ($20) separately. The case I have is in sophisticated floral 08 which has intertwining flowers and leaves. You simply twist the lipstick bullet into the case and you can easily switch the cases depending on your mood.

The shade I have is Cafe Parisien 093 and is a light barbie pink with a beige center. There are three shades in total that was released for fall 2015. The formula is lightweight, creamy and smooth. But unfortunately the color is super unflattering on me. The color is too light and makes me look washed out. I would think this will look better on someone who's more fair.

Here is the shade when swatched. You can see the beige center creating a streak on my hands but when applied to the lips it's not visible. Unfortunately this shade did not work out for me but I'm curious to swatch the other shades. This shade also accentuated my lip lines so although this is very cute to look at, it wasn't a quality lipstick for me.

I would recommend this if you love the unique and fun packaging! Once you use it the cat details will disappear although the outline will stay throughout the lipstick. To me, this is more of a collector's item than a practical lipstick. If you are planning to use yours, make sure to choose the right color for your skin!

Would you pick up a lipstick with cute packaging even if it's not flattering on?
