Paul and Joe
A few Springs ago Paul & Joe released a Disney Collection that was later released in the states over a year later. The Muse brought you a review of the Paul & Joe Disney Collection around the time it was released after hauling it from Japan.
Bless be! Paul & Joe strikes again with a brand new Spring Collection that’s Disney in theme. I suspect you’ll see plenty of Alice and Wonderland bits and bobs with the release of the film but the cutest I’ve laid eyes on thus far would be the Paul & Joe Spring Collection 2010.
British Beauty Blogger brings a very special sneak peek at the collection.
See the photos after the jump!
Remember when I reviewed the very popular Paul & Joe Disney X Collection back in the Spring?

GREAT news if you were loving the collection but didn’t have the means or the way to get it when it was released in Japan!
It’s coming to the US and making it’s debut this November!
Isn’t that fantastic?
You’ll be able to purchase the entire line up in November at your local Paul & Joe location!
Keep checking the Paul & Joe US portal for more information and locations where the collection will be available for purchase!
Further information about the collection guys!
It is available as of November at Bergdorf, you may want to call ahead and see if they have a list as I predict it’ll sale out very, very, very quickly. Here’s the number: 1-800-558-1855
The pricing on the items is about the same as when it was available in Japan just a shade cheaper by $3-$4 which is great news as the pieces are priced to own in my humblest opinion!
Pricing is as follows:
Face Color-$36 USD Each
Milky Lip Treatment-$18 USD
Protective Hand Cream-$24 USD
Since I already own the collection, I’ll go ahead and Muse Approve it for purchase! You must grab this one when it becomes available, you won’t be sorry!
Happy it’s finally available in the US?

Spring Collection 2008: Paul & Joe Disney X
Paul & Joe Disney X Review and First Impressions
The new Paul and Joe Summer Collection 2008 entitled Flirt is available as of June 1st within Japan and at your local counters (if you’re lucky enough to have a counter around).
The collection isn’t anything wow aspiring so it’s safe to say I won’t be partaking but definately check back soon as I’m sure the Fall Collection will be something great!
This collection consists of a variety of new mascaras, leg powder, lotion, etc….a bit of a snore for me. The mascaras are actually new as of May so that could be considered a late Spring release and the leg items are released as of June.
I’m not really loving it but I thought it deserved a mention!
Bored as the Muse?

I need to relax. What better way to relax then to blog?
Japanese Spring Collection week continues with the eagerly anticipated X Disney Collection! I blogged about this Collection not so long ago in a prior post (Click for details!) and soon after I knew I had to have the entire set!
How freaking cute is the packaging on this? My god I’m in love!
The collection consists of a lip treatment, handcream, and face powders.
My favorite of the collection are the two face powders! The packaging is like Guerlain’s Meteorites but a tiny bit smaller in size. I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that there isn’t a whole lot of powder beads inside but the packaging, quality, and pigment of the product make up for it!
The powders come in two shades one of which is a beautiful pink! The packaging on the pink shade features Flower, the lovable skunk from Bambi! Awwww! These come with a cute powder puff with ribbon which really makes me love it even more for the girlish Victorian factor! I can’t help myself I love cute cosmetics! Don’t you!?
The pink is a beautiful shade and can be worn alone if you so desire or used as a highlighter. The color is pigmented enough that you can easily get away with using it as a blush! I guess the puff isn’t a conventional way of applying but it works well enough for dotting onto your cheeks! I used some of this last night but decided to use my #187 to pick up the color! It worked a treat because the #187 didn’t become saturated with color it just picked up enough to highlight my chubby cheeks hehe!
The peach color features Bambi on the box! Oh my god so cute! I wanna lick the box! My favorite is Flower but I love Bambi just as much! The peach does remind me of the Jill Stuart Blush in 05 Orange Blush (Click here to see the color) and I found it a bit chalky in comparison to the silky texture of the pink. However, it needs to be tested a bit more prior to making my final decision! Like the pink it’s nicely pigmented to use as a blush or a highlighter! Yet again a disappointing amount of product but hey we got the cute packaging right? Right!
The other two items in the set were a handcream and a lip treatment. The handcream is a lovely cooling, moisturizing orange scented cream for your hands. Nothing really special here but the packaging does include Lady from Lady and the Tramp!
The lip treatment is quite yummie tasting but don’t be fooled into thinking it’ll be good for use with lipstick or as a glossy finish for your lips. This is a lip treatment so it’s good to moisturize but doesn’t leave your lips glossy or shiny! It’s most definately not good for use over lipsticks either. The packaging features sweet Marie from The AristoCats! Awwwwwwwwww! I’m so in love. Did I mention that?
I can’t squeal enough about this collection! It’s so cute!
Overall, a job well done for Paul & Joe! A beautiful selection of very cute items!
Tell the Muse!
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?
