Perfect for Christmas- Paul & Joe

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend the Paul &Joe bloggers event in central London.
I had always loved the Paul & Joe beauty packaging but hadn’t actually used any of their products, and of course I like the fashion line too!

At the event Paul & Joe’s global makeup artists Craig-Ryan French spoke about his experience with the brand, his beliefs behind makeup and told us how he was the makeup artist for the Saw films! 

Sadly I had to leave early and missed some of the event but I was really interested in his philosophy on 
beauty = balance and how you should use symmetry to create a perfect look.
We also had a look at the new limited edition holiday collection- The Holiday Sparkles Collection 2010.
They eye and lip colour set is a perfect Christmas gift, it comes with ‘Sheet Music Shadow’ which is super thin sheet music with beautiful and pigment eyeshadows which last about 30 applications.

It also comes with a Luxury Lip Rouge and vintage style makeup bag; there are two sets to choose from adagio or allegro. (£30)
Also in the collection are a pressed powder compact which is also limited edition but is refillable and five nail polishes. 

I tried the Orchestra(005) l nail polish which retails for £9 but comes in very pretty packaging. This colour is prefect not only for the holiday season but for the whole of autumn/winter!  It’s a dark navy with festive glitter. 

 This collection is available from Asos, Harrods and Fenwick.

What do you think of it? Isn't the packaing beautiful!
