After hearing people rave about Paul & Joe lipsticks for a while, I decided to buy the Silk Stockings color.
This lipstick has a wonderful texture. It does not dry out my lips and has great staying power. I understand why I have heard so many good things about Paul & Joe lipstick.
My only complaint is that the color pictured on the Birchbox website is nothing like the actual color of the lipstick. Instead of the color that is pictured, the lipstick is actually a very orange coral. It's a pretty color, but not the best choice for my skin tone.
The lipstick is great. Birchbox should list the colors more accurately. This experience has made me wary of trusting the colors displayed on the site.
I love the tube, and the light pink shade is cute. The lipstick feels creamy on your lips, and stays on about as well as any other regular lipstick.
I ordered this lipstick mainly for the beautiful packaging. But the lipstick itself is smooth and covers so well. I got the Retro shade. Its a little more nude and less pink than I was expecting, which is my only critique. I do like it and intend to wear with my NYE dress and a bold eye.
Thanks Birchbox for carrying this great brand!
Great once you find the right color
I have olive skin and very dark brown hair, and I thought that Mon Mimi would be be the perfect nude. It wasn't. Thankfully Birchbox allowed me to send it back in exchange for Retro, which is a much better color for me. It's not a game changer, but it's a nice product and has great coverage and texture.
Great lipstick, cute packaing
How can you resist the vintage style of this adorable case? Smooth, buttery lipstick. Doesn't have great staying power but I like it anyway. Feels moisturizing and glides on evenly. Nice, light fragrance. Plus the case is refillable!
This lipstick is a great brand with full coverage I got the red shade and it lasts long and has a beautiful matte finish! Plus to the product is the BEAUTIFUL packaging!
Pretty pop of color
Based on another review, since I have darker skin, I went ahead and got a more richer color, since I wanted something to show up. It's quite bright ( the color I bought was Silk Stockings), and was a little more than I expected. The packaging is gorgeous though so I like displaying it on my vanity.
I bought one and wish I had purchased all the colors. Waiting for more to be available. The case alone is gorgeous- you will get random compliments if you take it out in public. The lipstick was as advertised- great full coverage color.
I have the light pink shade. It's a very creamy, matte lipstick. It covers fully with one swipe and comes in the cutest pink and white tube. I really love the over all look and am thinking about getting the matching compact.
I order this lipstick simply for the packaging as the case is beautiful. I received my package today with only the refill lipstick but no case!
