Generally all eyeshadows from Paul & Joe I tried were a disappointment. Most turned out dull or sheer or both and I just didn't feel any love for them.
However the Eye Color Palette CS in #002 released for Spring 2009 looked so pretty (OMG that case! SO beautiful! And great colors!) I had to have it (and found it a great deal cheaper than retail on eBay).
Anyway, the mirrored case is super pretty and rather large. The compact contains 3 full-sized Paul & Joe eyeshadows and a good-quality dual-ended brush/sponge applicator.
Paul & Joe describes the colors of palette #002 as "Pearl pink, pearl gray and purple"... ?????????!!!!!!!!
The colors are: dull light pink, warm muddy brown and deep powdery super dull gray. Ugh!
I tried several ways to wear the palette but it always turned out crap. Furthermore this was one of the first eyeshadow palettes in ages that creased like mad on me (despite base).
The texture of the shadows isn't that bad, rather soft and silky but the colors are dull and boring beyond belief and the creasing problem annoys me.
Here are 2 boring looks I did with the palette:
All in all definitely not worth the money. Better pick up a few of the new Kate or Lavshuca palettes!
