Other than taking pictures of myself for uni
(not just for fun *cough cough*!)
I have also been waiting for an asos order
and today it arrived!
It's the Alice in wonderland tin by Paul & Joe
I was really gutted I didn't get my hands on an urban decay palette
so thought I would plump for this to ease my pain!
It came in a gorgeous cardboard sleeve / box
it's quite textured and expensive feeling
and the little illustrations are so darling!
Here's the tin itself,
It came in two colourways,
blue packaging with a peach lipstick (which is what I went for)
and pink packaging with a pink lipstick
Open it up and inside is a blotting paper holder (with mirror)
perfect for in your handbag
Blotting paper refills
and the lipstick
The tin is pretty sturdy,
and everything feel really good quality
Here's the lipstick
I swatched it for you
and erm there was no point showing it to you!
it is so sheer there is next to no pigment at all
just a little shimmery, felt moisturising though
and here they are in my hand for size comparison!
Overall I love it!
Its worth it for the packaging alone in my book!
its well made and so so cute!
However I was considering getting both colourways
and I'm really glad I didn't
With the lipsticks lack of pigment, almost like a lip salve,
I assume the pink would be pretty much the same
so yeah, no need to get both!
have you considered buying it?
or do you have the urban decay palette?
(if you do I'm jealous!)
