This is my first time trying out a Paul & Joe Beaute makeup product, and I’m really excited because I’ve heard fantastic things about them. Their Cheek Color in 09 – Peaches ‘n’ Cream is a fantastically sublime blush duo that feels super soft to the touch and looks opulent and dazzling in the packaging. This is a universally flattering cheek color, so absolutely anyone of any skin tone can pull this off. Inside I’ve got photographs of this brilliant cheek color.

The packaging alone is a sight to behold. It has a retro feeling to it, but it also manages to look fresh and modern. This cheek color comes in “refill pan” form, meaning it is a flat, magnetic pan that you can add to an empty palette of your choice. Paul & Joe have a specific compact that this cheek color fits in to, but I plan to stick this pan right into one of my empty makeup palettes. You can find empty, customizable makeup palettes on Etsy, as well as online such as Z Palette, where you can store multiple pans of product in the same palette.
Peaches ‘n’ Cream is a gorgeous blush duo with a light, shimmering peach shade on the left, and a bright, dazzling orange on the right. You can wear these shades separately, using the brighter color as a blush and the lighter color as a highlight, or you can sweep them together to create a customized cheek color.
Hopefully the photographs help do this product some justice in showing just how insanely enchanting this blush is. The colors are pigmented and bold, yet still have a softness to them that yields itself to a glowing effect when applied.
These are silky. I mean, when you stick your finger into the product, it feels like pure satin. I was very pleased with how soft these were and they weren’t powdery at all. You can see above that I swatched both shades separately next to one another.
The bright orange shade has a very fine shimmer to it. I actually love the addition of the shimmer because you don’t notice it until you look very closely. This gives your skin that dewy, youthful look without being all “GLITTER” in your face.
When you swirl the two shades together, you get a creamsicle-like orange shade that looks shimmery and dewy. I honestly love orange blush because it’s different than your typical pink and red blushes we constantly see. Orange blush can give your complexion a youthful glow and a sculpted look that other shades cannot.
On my actual cheeks, above, the blush felt fantastic. It didn’t settle into my pores or make me look oily. In fact, it gave me the perfect amount of glowing orange shimmer, which made me look far more awake than I actually am.
This shade of blush can really help add a warmth to your skin, as well. When wearing this blush, I feel like I don’t need as much makeup on the other parts of my face. Overall, I give the Paul & Joe Beaute Cheek Color in Peaches ‘n’ Cream two very big thumbs up!
