My New Things: Paul & Joe Holiday 2008!

Today, I'll be showing you the Paul & Joe Face Color and Lipstick Set from Holiday 2008!! I didn't really like the PJ holiday things from this year - the purple is just a bit tooooo purple. (I would've preferred lavender, hehe.)

I'm sure you're all familiar with this set, but I took a lot of photos anyway! ;P I got it in 002, the orange one. It comes a Face Color in M 002, lipstick in G 002, and a fantastically cute kitty-print cosmetics pouch.



The packaging is very nice, but it feels lighter than expected so I'm assuming the plastic material is not reinforced. Still, I love the white color.



There is shimmer in the blush, but it's not too noticeable when you put it on unless you look closely. I quite like the look of this on my cheeks.

 

The lipstick is more like a balm. It imparts just the slightest hint of color, and leaves a lot of shine.

 

Of course, the star of the group - the kitty bag!!! It's satin-y, and feels well-made.

 

The hot pink lining is really makes this bag special!

 

It's not very big, but more than enough room for me! I only fill about 40% of the space. Can you tell what's in my bag? ;D

 

These two face color powders (eyeshadow duos) are inspired by Rouge Deluxe's posts regarding makeup organization: here, and here.

 

The prints are so adorable~ They look cute in my makeup drawer, hehe.

 

I haven't tried these yet - I don't want to smear the flower print!

 

The weather is getting colder, but at least I'm finally done with my finals!!!! *SIGH* I hope I did well on them, but I'm not holding my breath haha!

    I loike the kitty purse!!!

    I'm so uninspired recently!! But I'll try to do a look with Lavshuca BU-1 =D I heard that it isn't as good as the previous Lavshuca releases though... maybe you can buy some other blue palettes from other brands?

    I'm not too familiar with P&J so I like pics of their stuff. The kitty bag is gorgeous! I like how it has a vintagey snap closure on it too haha

    Usually when I have eyeshadow with pretty prints on it I only use the colour AROUND the print (attempting to preserve it for longer lol)

    I can see a Shiseido sunscreen in the pouch and that's it. I like the kitty bag a lot better than the actual cosmetics in the set, I wish they just come up with a pouch with this design...

    i was quiet surprised when you said that blush is rather invisible as it looks quite pigmented. I like that idea though as i don't like doll like blush. nice haul!
