Paul & Joe’s Fall 2011 Manhattan Collection

By Butterboom Writers  /  September 19, 2011

French brand gets autumnal inspiration from NYC.

This might just be the prettiest packaging we’ve seen all season! Paul & Joe Beaute, the frivolously feminine brainchild of Parisian designer Sophie Albou, have gone all floral for fall with their Manhattan Cosmetics Collection.

Inspired by New York City and its combination of offbeat edginess and upscale glamour, the limited edition collection mixes beautiful neutrals and intense colour pops with memorable results. Even better is the super pretty colourful floral packaging – your make-up cabinet will never have looked so stylish!

The eyeshadow pots consist of two shades designed to look like the city streets which can either be worn alone, blended together or even as a blush. Brooklyn Bridge combines pretty pinks, Empire State is a winning mix of shimmering beige and smokey grey, while 42nd Street contrasts royal blue with rose.

The lipsticks come in three sophisticated shades: Uptown Girl, a softly flattering coral; Lower East Side, an easy-to-wear neutral and Soho, a vivacious orange. All feature Paul & Joe’s signature chrysanthemum design engraved on the lipstick itself.

A further range of art deco-inspired eye palettes, lipsticks, eyeliners and nail polishes will complete the collection later in the month.
