Happy Monday, blog fans! It's a gorgeously sunny day here, although still a bit cold. Regardless, things are finally starting to feel spring-ish. I'm waiting for the blossoms on my apple tree to bloom (they are so pretty!) and thinking this might be the year I finally get some herbs planted. The weather just happens to be perfectly suited to the beauties we're going to be chatting up today too (a happy accident.) The Paul & Joe Daydream Believer Collection for Summer 2017 brings soft, pretty hues and as the brand is known for, the cutest packaging.

Blush fiends, get excited! The new Paul & Joe Gel Blush is a formulation you are definitely going to want in your stash. Inspired by the brand's Gel Foundation, the blush has a hydrating, dewy finish that stays put. The formula has a smooth, wet but creamy feel that cools on contact with skin leaving a natural and slightly radiant flush of colour on cheeks. Better than just looking great, the blush also works to minimize the appearance of tonal and textural uneveness to give the look of smoother, perfected skin. If that's still isn't enough for you, the formula is made for the hottest summer days as it also resists perspiration to stay fresh and retain it's finish.

The gel blush is currently offered in three neutral, skin enhancing shades (a pink, peach, and neutral-nude) of which I have the gorgeous 003 Onirique. I love a neutral blush, and that is exactly what this neutral-pink hue is. Perfection!

The Daydream believer collection sees the launch of the Paul & Joe Eye Colour Limited. The mosaic-like shadow combine five shades of pearly, shimmering shadow that actually boasts more pigment than I expected. Of the three palettes in the collection, each have their own retro inspired, summery motif printed on the heavy card compact. The compact is quite simple otherwise, with no mirror and a magnet closure.

I have 007 Castles in the Air which offers more neutral hues of an ultra soft pink, pale pink, soft yellow-gold, taupey brown, and a slightly warmer brown. The shades offer a wash of shimmery colour on eyes, but can also be swirled together on a larger brush for use on the cheeks.

Overall, this collection is super cute but also quite functional. I highly recommend the Gel Blush and am looking forward to testing it against the warmer weather that is sure to get here (eventually...) The collection is also home to two Tinted Lip Glosses and is available in Canada at BeautyBoutique.ca and at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations. What do you think? Need any of these products?
