Blush Love: Paul & Joe Face Color 18

I have never tried anything from Paul & Joe before so imagine my excitement when I got my hands on my first ever product from that brand - Face Color 18. Here it is in all its glory.


I love the cream-colored compact with chrysanthemum floral details which is very dainty and feminine. The compact is small and very handy which makes it easy to carry around.


As with any Japanese makeup, the quality is superb. The powder is finely milled, feels silky, and the texture is smooth, creamy, and velvety. It applies like a dream and unlike other Japanese-branded blushes I have previously tried, this one is pigmented. One swipe is enough to get color to show on the cheeks. It also has a lovely sheen to it that makes the cheeks glow. It is unscented which is a huge plus for me.

It is pressed very well because it has 4.5g and it is in a small compact. It is priced at Php 1150 and I don't think the price is bad at all considering the very good quality you get from it. Staying power is also good and lasts for 4-5 hours given how humid it has been recently.

Overall, a really nice blush to own and I do not regret ever having to purchase this at a bargain, for less than the SRP from a fellow addict and friend, Zai. :) Not sure if I would repurchase because I will now do my best to finish at least one compact before purchasing another one. But if they come up with another Bambi (the balls) again, I would definitely buy it!



Blush up-close.

Swatches (I don't like using both shades though, I prefer the peach-pink side to use)

Have you tried blushes from Paul & Joe? What other products from the brand would you recommend me to try?

Happy Thursday, super awesome peeps! :P

  1. GOSH. I haven't been here in a while. I have to say, I like this product! I'm with you when it comes to Japanese products! Korean ones are the same way.

    This is definitely a must-try! I would jump from one type to another as opposed to sticking to just one specific P&J product. They're worth trying. :)

    I hope you've been doing well!

  7. i have tried once or twice P&J blushes, foundation and e/s, wasn't very impressed though. But this blush in your post looked hella pigmented :D!

  8. Jennifer, I was actually surprised this this blush is pigmented because I thought P&J blushes are sheer based on reviews online. :P
