Once upon a time there lived a handsome husky tabby cat with a nose for gravy and a penchant for posing on runways and catwalks.

“Meow,” he told his assistant one day. I’m leaving home. “Mrrow-row-wow.” I’m moving to Novato to pursue my dream of becoming a world-class plus-size kitty model.

Like Tabs, I’ve always liked Paul & Joe’s products for their artistic touches, like the cute detailing on their lipsticks. Sometimes, it’s cats wearing top hats (YES!); other times, it’s chrysanthemums, like the ones gracing tubes of Once Upon a Time 081 from the Paul & Joe Beauté Fall 2013 Fairytale Collection.

Once Upon a Time is a refill — one of three new lipstick refills from the new launch — so you may need a $5 case if you don’t already have one. There are three limited edition refillable lipstick cases in the collection, just in case.

Like most Paul & Joe packaging, the cases are made of paper, and consequently they aren’t indestructible. I wouldn’t leave one on the bathroom sink, if you catch my drift.

As for this story here, Once Upon a Time, I like the color, and you might, too, if you dig warm, pumpkin orange lipsticks with creamy finishes.

More details…

  • The formula smells and tastes like roses.
  • It has a 2-3 hour wear time.
  • It feels more like a balm than a lipstick to me.
  • The coverage is sheer.

Once Upon a Time tells the tale of a vintage orange lipstick living in the world of today. :) Really fun to wear with black cat liner and false lashes!

    I’ve always been a big fan of the Paul&Joe look, it probably has to do with the cute cats ^^. I actually really appreciate sheer lipsticks lately, they are so easy and low maintenance. It’s a really fun colour this one, I love these shades for fall :).

    Wow the packaging is adorable! Is it recycled paper? That would be so eco-friendly! It is the perfect wearable orange color :D

  8. Kim says:

    That is definitely sheer – it looks really nice on you. Of course, I love the flower detail, too. :) I like the idea of a refill but have a feeling the lipstick might outlast the case. :)

  9. Looks quite nice on you! Packaging and formula reminds me of the L’occitane Pivoine flora lipstick!
