As deeply passionate as I was in my love for Urban Outfitters when I was 14, I haven't paid much attention to them in a while. Suddenly, I just didn't feel like I needed shirts that came pre-stained.
Although Urban Outfitters and I have grown apart, I decided to catch up with a quick browse through their website... and holy fuck. At some point along the line, Urban Outfitters decided to sell real makeup. Like, good makeup. For grown ups.
One of my favorite difficult-to-track-down brands is Paul and Joe Beaute. Paul and Joe is a brand that combines clever themes, gorgeous packaging, and consistently high quality products.

I recently picked up one of the Mid Summer's Night lip glosses in Fairy Kisses from the Urban Outfitter's website. Its ethereal green color is certainly reminiscent of my beloved Titania.
The packaging, of course, is spectacular. The cap has a vintage vibe, and the chrysanthemum detailing on the tube is adorable.
Although Urban Outfitters is calling this a "flavored lip gloss", I am not confident that that is the correct terminology for this product. It is green apple and vanilla scented, but it pretty much just tastes like... wax. (Don't eat this.)

The only thing that I don't like about this product is the brush. At first it was pointy and hard. With some massaging, I removed this problem, only to find that the bristles splay out everywhere when I try to apply the product. Still, this is a relatively minor complaint. I love the theme, I love the product, and I love the packaging. I'll tolerate the brush.
