Paul & Joe Fall AND Holiday 2011 Makeup-palooza

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 2 - 2011

We’ve got a bit of a mish-mash here so bear with me.  You’re looking at a selection of Paul & Joe goodies from both their Fall 2011 Manhattan collection AND a few bits from the upcoming Holiday/Christmas 2011 collection.  ‘Citing!

These five sparkly polishes are Holiday/Christmas releases (I couldn’t see the Fall polishes on the stand).  We’re looking at glitter people.  Jewel toned glitters and I have NO idea what that green is all about.  It’s reminded me to take nail wheels with me for swatching next time.  Stupid blogger.

On the left, we have the new finishing powder which will be available in SIX shades from the 5th August.  In the middle… yeah, let’s take a moment over that green again.  And over on the right are the eyeshadows and lipsticks from the Fall Manhattan Collection.

Moving on…

I got a bit hung up on the polishes…  “Holidays are coming, holidays are coming….”

See on the shelf behind?  The palette and cardboard boxes with ribbons?   That’s Holiday… and it’s a bit special because the palette is customisable and the little boxes are for hanging on the Xmas tree!!  They contain single eyeshadows that can be bought for the refillable palette!

OK, just one last look at those polishes….


What do you think?  Sophisticated Fall and a Sparkly Xmas?  Sounds good to me.

    Oh my god, the eyeshadow box baubles are such a good idea! Wouldn’t mind some of those on my tree haha. I actually like the green polish…reminds me of the polishes you got as a kid :)

    The green one looks lovely!

  5. Claire says:

    That packaging is beautiful! And those eyeshadows look amazing. The blue and the pinky-coral polishes are now on my wishlist :)

  6. I love P&J products and those nail polishes are beautiful–that teal blue is to die for! I’d love to wake up to a wee box hanging from my Christmas tree.

    Sadly I know of no physical location, short of traveling to NYC, where I can see Paul and Joe products in person. :( Sometimes their trademark gold flecks in the powder products can be a bit too much on these aging eyes.

    LOve those nail polishes, especially the green one. Sigh. I really shouldn’t buy any more nail polish, or make up for that matter.

  8. Leah says:

    They all look great. I love that green, really unusual.

    The light green polish looks really interesting – would love to see what it looks like in action !

    I guess I’m on my own when I say I think it all looks a bit cheap…?
