I’m trying to come up with post titles that don’t involve the word “haul”… it’s getting a bit repetitive. But repetitive doesn’t necessarily mean boring, right? 😉 Today I bring you some Paul & Joe Beauté loot:
This was spurred on by a gift I received from my friend at Christmas:
Le Bal Masque Set in 001 Oh! Carnival!
After receiving this present, I was compelled to go to the nearest Shoppers Drug Mart (SDM) that carries the Paul & Joe line, and upon laying eyes on the glory of their display, lost my mind, blacked out for a bit, only waking up to find myself thrusting my credit card at the cashier. It was all my friend’s fault! 😛
Firstly, let’s have a closer look at what is contained in the Le Bal Masque Set:
The kit contains:
• Rose Treatment Balm
• Eye Color (x5 sheets)
• Creamy Cheek Color L001
• Waterproof Eye Liner 01
Isn’t it precious!? I almost don’t want to use those eye shadow sheets. Almost.
Here’s what I bought for myself:
Paul & Joe Natural Lipstick in #207 Grapevine ($20 + $8 for refillable case)
Nail Polish in (L to R): Figue 04, Kakigori 07, Koala Bear 12 – $16 each
To narrow down to these 3 choices, I referred extensively to this amazingly thorough post from imabeautygeek (what would I do without her blog? Save money? Ha!).
Eye Color Brush S – $21
It’s super soft and a great shape for blending. Surprisingly, I didn’t end up with any eye shadows, which is unusual for me. But I figured I have so many shades to try from those eye shadow sheets in the Le Bal Masque set, I’ll give them a whirl to see if I like them enough to buy the full sized pans.
Two good things to note about this haul (aside the lovely items themselves) is that 1) I used a $50 SDM gift card, and 2) I received a crazy amount of bonus Optimum Points for spending more than $75 on Paul & Joe products, so there’s that. 😀
Have you tried Paul & Joe? I think this is my new Anna Sui! (I still love you Anna, I just also love Paul & Joe – there’s room in my heart for the both -or three?- of you). ❤
