Review: Paul & Joe Beauté Fairytale Eye Colour Set

The Price: £27.00/$42.00

The Stockists: Selfridges, and

The Collection: Fall 2013 Fairytale Collection

The Review: If Sleeping Beauty actually existed, I'm convinced this eye colour set would've had pride of place on her dressing table. Beautifully packaged in a fairytale book inspired box, the set comprises of a Snow White cream eye colour, a Dusty Rose eyeshadow and Sparkling Silver pigment.

Snow White (1g) is a metallic white cream eye colour that makes the perfect highlighter. It is sheer and has a smooth, blendable texture that is great for use on the cheekbones and lips, as well as the eyes.

Dusty Rose (1g) is a golden pink shimmery eyeshadow that seems to change colour under different lighting. It is not the most pigmented eyeshadow I've ever used and it doesn't have the best staying power, however the colour is really beautiful.

Sparkling Silver (1.5g) is an amazing silvery white pigment. It has really good pigmentation and great staying power, especially when used with a mixing medium. Sparkling Silver can also be applied over another eyeshadow to enhance the colour and really make it stand out.

From the top: Snow White, Dusty Rose and Sparkling Silver
The Pro: Although advertised as an eye colour set, Fairytale is really the perfect highlighting kit. It can take you from subtle shimmer to striking sparkle.

The Con: The Dusty Rose eyeshadow lacks any real staying power, however using a setting spray would help the colour last a little longer.
