Haul | Paul & Joe Summer 2011 & Waterproof eyeliner *PHOTO HEAVY*

Hiya folks!

I've had these items items for quite some time and finally took photos!  Although my camera is on the fritz I've recently been able to get it to snap photos.  Woo! always has free offers, and for Paul and Joe you can get the cute whale cosmetic bag.  Most of these items I got from Beauty Habit with the exception of the waterproof eyeliner.  It is from

I am a big fan of Paul & Joe with the nail polish remover which now takes the #1 spot in my list of top nail polish removers bumping Zoya's Remove+ to the #2 spot.  It is much more costly per ounce.  Paul & Joe offers one size of polish remover with a cost of around $15.00.

From left to right:  Body Lotion B, Bronzer B, Waterproof Eyeliner in Black, Whale Cosmetic Bag, Nail Polishes 014 Confetti, 015 Venus, 016 Mediterranean, Nail Enamel Remover

You can probably tell I've already used the polish remover several times.  I love it!  The formula is fantastic, and the glass bottle is very cute.

The cosmetic bag  has two large compartments with whale shaped brass hardware, and the material is almost like a rip-stop nylon.
Doesn't look like it'll hold much?  Guess again!!

Everything in their boxes fit!  The clear plastic is flat and the outside whale fabric is shaped to contain the items allowing the cosmetic bag to close.

The bronzer is housed in a pretty aqua blue pearlescent compact.

From Left to Right:  014 Confetti, 015 Venus, 016 Mediterranean

Paul & Joe also has a pink nail color and a red nail color in this limited edition collection, but these three were the ones that caught me.  They have Paul & Joe's usual Nail Enamel scent which is a very sweet floral at first, but then softens to be very pleasant in my opinion.  The scent is very similar to Anna Sui's polishes, but do not make me sick like the Anna Sui's do.
014 Confetti is packed with colorful and iridescent glitter.

015 Venus is an aqua blue that appears to be the signature color for this collection mixed with glitter.  The glitter appeared to be the same mix seen in confetti, but doesn't pop due to being suspended in the milky blue polish.  This color is so dreamy!!

016 Mediterranean is a seer blue jelly packed with blue disc glitter and multi sized blue and green-iridescent glitter.  Lots of fun, but you have to dig out the large glitter sometimes.  I say sometimes because there were times when I didn't try to fish out the glitter and I'd get a good heap of them on my nails.  XD

I hope you enjoyed checking out this haul!  Tell me, have you picked up anything from this collection?  Have you tried Paul & Joe's nail enamel remover, and if so, what do you think?

Unitl Next time!!
