Paul & Joe Lipstick A (025) from the new $100 Paul & Joe Makeup Collection A

Believe it or not, I do NOT own a bejeweled pimp cup.

Shocker, I know. 🙂

But if I did, I would raise it high and proudly to Paul & Joe for giving us 20 years of cat lady cosmetics catnip.

That’s 20 years of CCL domination, y’all!

The $100 Paul & Joe Beaute Makeup Collection A

To celebrate this meow-worthy occasion, the purveyors of kitty makeup purr-fection curated the Paul & Joe Beaute Makeup Collection A (a $100 set).

It’s a limited edition box containing their bestselling makeup products…but I’m most excited about the tote it comes with because it FOLDS INTO A CAT HEAD.

I mean, I JUST CAN’T EVEN. WITH THE EARS!?

The kitty tote!?

It’s big, too, and has more than enough room for all kinds of cat lady shinanigans and those tubes of Paul & Joe lipstick with the cat heads that you just can’t bear to use because they’re so darned cute.

Oh, and yeah, there’s also makeup in the collection, like a powder blush (a light coral pink with a silver sheen), a cream lipstick (a creamy, semi-sheer pink) and a pressed powder compact (a light beige powder and a shimmery beige highlighter).

Everything is full size and, because we’re talking about Paul & Joe here, adorable.

But are they, ya know, good?

Yes, I think so. Pretty good. Keep in mind, though, that Paul & Joe is geared toward the casual makeup enthusiast — at least that’s always been my perception — so if you’re a stickler for the finer technical aspects of professional makeup performance, then these products might not live up to those expectations.

Take the blush, for instance. I like how sheer and natural it looks on my cheeks, especially in natural light and in pics, but when I wear it and see myself in flourescent lighting, I think my pores look kinda big… Perhaps due to the sheen (it could be a touch finer), but then again, I could also just chill-the-eff out. 🙂 Like, if I didn’t know anything about blush, I’d probably just think it looked pretty and I’d like it.

Same goes for the lipstick. It’s a flattering color and feels smooth and comfy, and I like how I can just ba-boomp-ba-boomp it on without any drama, but some might have issues with the fact that it isn’t completely opaque (although I like that it’s sheer).

So, yeah. If you’re hawd koa and you never leave the house without contouring the back of your neck (OMG, yes this is a totally thing; I saw it on Instagram!), baking and strobing, you could probably invest those same 100 tacos into something else and be happier.

But if you go ga-ga over things like cute cat totes and just want fun products to use in your minimalist makeup routine, these would be SO MUCH fun.

Paul & Joe Makeup Collection A is available online meow (you know I had to go there) at beautyhabit.com.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
