Paul & Joe Spring Collection 2008
I asked my most lovely friend, Iris, from Rouge Deluxe to see if Paul & Joe would be releasing it's X Disney on her end of the world but sadly it appears Paul & Joe will not be bringing X Disney to Singapore shores!
Great big sigh of disappointment for Singaporeans far and wide :( I wonder why not.
Anyway, that's the rather bad news!
The good news is here is what it looks like (if you haven't yet been exposed to it):
The collection is quite small and I find myself both loving and hating that. I love that I'm not going to have to spend 1 trillion dollars to get the lot of it and I hate that it's so damn cute that it's gagging for more pieces in it! Know what I mean?
It's a pretty simple selection of products with alot of emphasis on the uber sweet packaging! I mean look at those containers? So, so sweet!
The set includes all of the following:
Face Color B
The face powder comes in two colors which appear to be a standard pink and a lovely peach color. They are 3,990 yen per a pot which is roughly $36USD each. Bit costly but not too bad considering the cute factor. Hey, money is no object when cute comes into play right? I'm slightly worried these will be a bit on the sheer side but it's mostly about the collecting it rather then getting big color pay off. Sounds strange but when you collect cosmetics purchasing a product for LE reasons only is a standard practice among the cosmetic junkie elite!
Next up we have the hand cream which is darling as well but falls into the silly price range at well. This is selling for 2,100 yen which is about $20USD give or take a few cents! The price has not turned me off to wanting it so it's definately on the "want" list. I'm also generally curious about the smell. It's going to be quite funny if it turns out to be unscented! But hey the packaging is damn cute isn't it?!
Milky Lip Treatment
Last in the collection is the milky lip treatment. This is 1,890 yen which is about $17 USD or so. Looks equally cute as the other pieces in the collection.
Overall, I'd say the hand cream and lip treatment are pointless and the real gems in the collection are the two face powders. In all seriousness if you're a collector you're going to want the lot be it pointless or not but if you're looking to save a dime maybe purchase the pink powder only as that looks the most appealing of the lot!
I asked for all four items and I'm hopeful that my mate will be able to locate them all as this is somewhat a favorite of mine so far in the Japanese Spring Collection line ups!
Stay tuned for my review on each of these products!
How about you?
