Paul & Joe Holiday 2010-Eye & Lip sets and Nail polish

I'm a sucker for nice packaging and Paul & Joe often has some of the cutest packaging around so it's oh so hard for me to resist. I purchased both of the eye & lip color sets and some of the nail polishes from the holiday collection through beautyhabit.com. I haven't gotten a chance to swatch the collection so it's just product pics for now.

The theme of this collection is "symphony". The lining of the boxes and the eye shadow cards have a sheet music design on them.



Each of the Eye & Lip color sets come in a floral pouch with a kiss clasp.


Interior:


The Eye & Lip color set includes a lip rouge and 5 eyeshadow cards.


For the Adagio set, there is a dark pink/red color combine with a light pink color:

For the Allegro set, the lip rouge is a shimmery clear color combined with a dark pink flower.


The eye shadow cards:

So far, I like the colors in both sets. The eye shadow cards are novel although they do have an over sized sample feel to it =P Hopefully both items will wear well. I will post swatches once I have the heart to use them.

The 2 polishes I decided to get are Classical (light pink) and Minuet (light grey cement):

Minuet reminds me of Rescue Beauty Lounge Jane polish:


A new press powder duo was also released along with a limited edition compact case with the floral motif like the pouch. There is a Face color and Lip gloss set shown on the Paul & Joe beaute website but I haven't seen it available yet.

Whoa, the lip set packaging is gorgeous and I am totally digging the music theme! Shadow cards are definitely novel...how big are they? They do look a bit like an "oversized sample" ^^ Overall, nice haul :D

@insideoutelle The theme is quite nice =) The cards are about 2-3/4 inches by 1-3/4 inches. I would guess they are about the size of most blotting papers packs. So pretty small but it's estimated at around 30 uses.

P&J packaging is always too cute. I think I prefer the colors of the Adagio set as they seem a little bit more wearable for me. Although the Allegro colors are cute too. That said, I think I would pass on the sets. The polishes though.. I think I want them all! Thank you for sharing! ^^
