Illuminating Foundation

This gift box contains 3 illuminating foundation primers in very cute 10ml bottles. Paul & Joe's bestselling product, this makeup base provides gentle coverage with skin-softening ingredients while illuminating and brightening your skin. 

Cream Blush

The cream blush comes in a 001 shade. The colour looks a bit dark, but has a very velvety texture and spreads very well. It gives a lovely berry-stained appearance on cheeks and lips as well.

Cream Eyeshadows

The box contains two cream eyeshadows. The shimmery bronze-brown and light lilac shades are neutral, neither too glittery nor too matte. The cream formula creates an elegant appearance.

Lipstick Limited

Two gorgeous, wearable shades of lipstick available in adorable cases that suit any occasion. The warm brown is a beautiful daytime neutral, and the red-pink will give you a beautiful holiday pout.

Powder Blush

Applying blush can have a significant impact on your whole appearance, and we never leave it out. This powder blush gives a peachy solid wash of color, and also contains a light shimmer for an allover glow. 

Moisturizing Lotion

No makeup routine is complete without moisturizer. This pint-sized version, containing organic olive oil, melts into your skin and acts as a perfect makeup base.

Other Items

The Paul and Joe Advent Calendar 2022 includes a hair tie, body oil, lip balm, hand cream, pouches, makeup remover, and everything possible thing you would need to treat yourself (or someone special)!
