Paul & Joe Beaute Beach Baby Pressed Powder UV

Paul & Joe's summer collection is called Beach Baby, and features a selection of lip, eye and nail shades in retro pastels and fun brights. The theme is inspired by beach locations and general fun in the sun.

Contrarily enough, the piece I was most taken with out of the collection has nothing much to do with beaches or bikinis (although it does have UV filters). It's the pressed powder compact, which has a picture of two snow leopards on a background of green foliage.

Our cosmetic hero Craig-Ryan French (Paul & Joe's creative lead), who introduced us to the collection at a PR event awash with leis, palm leaves and pretty seashells, explained the relevance of the leopards to the beach theme by saying "you'd better stay on the beach, because in the trees beyond there are leopards." Of course!

There are some other lovely items in the collection too, most notably some eye/lip gloss duos which have shimmery cream eyeshadow at one end and juicy, high-pigment lip gloss at the other.

The powder compact is limited edition and comes in two translucent shades - one a bit pinkish (003, shown in these pictures), and one a bit bronzerish (004). They're both delightful and cost £28. You can buy them at, or pick them up in person at Harrods, Fenwicks and Selfridges.
