According to ’80s spelling bee champion/hip-hop group J.J. Fad, the “S” is for super, and the “U” is for unique. The “P” is for perfection, and you know that we are freaks…
It’s that first part — the “S” part for super — that also applies to new $36 Paul & Joe Moisturizing Foundation Primer S, because dang if this stuff doesn’t smell super good!
It’s how I imagine it must be like to open the door to the penthouse suite of the Ritz-Carlton Paris when a cloud of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle mixed with fragrant orange flower shampoo and luxury baby powder wafts out…
Gimme a second because I need to take another sniff, aah! 🙂
One of two new face primers arriving in three shades online and at Paul & Joe counters next month, Moisturizing Foundation Primer S is the more “chillaxed” one. A liquid primer, it’s designed to moisturize, smooth pores — although not as assertively as Perfect Makeup Primer, the other new P&J primer — and prepare the skin for foundation.
With this primer, major moisturizing is the real name of the game as it contains two types of sodium hyaluronate, along with hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, extracts of apricot and white lily, and orange flower water. For a little lustrous-ness, the formula also contains champagne pearl.
I think this is a pretty good primer, but I like it mostly for the moisture and the scent (which I love). I’d reach for it when those two things were more important to me than pore smoothing…because that’s not its strength.
Look for it next month online and at Paul & Joe counters in three shades — 01 Pink to help skin appear brighter and clearer, 02 Orange to correct uneven skin tone and 03 Clear for radiance and a luminous finish.
PRICE: $36 each, available in three shades
AVAILABILITY: Coming August to Paul & Joe counters and online
