Haul: Paul & Joe Self Select Eye Color Eyeshadow Swatches and Palette!

I am not above hauling some Paul & Joe, and since they are quite expensive, I am most definitely up for some bargains.

Best place to find cheap Paul & Joe eyeshadows?  eBay! I paid about £7 each for each eyeshadow (which is about half price) and £6 for 2 empty palettes. I wanted to do a brown combo palette and a pink one.  There’s a space left in my pink palette because I have ordered a Paul & Joe Christmas eyeshadow from Ornamental Collection – 005 Joy to the World, a really bright pink!

Here’s the haul:

I do find these eyeshadows too expensive at full price though, because the solos don’t come with any kind of case at all, which means you’d have to fork out for a palette.

Here are the three browns – 02 Torch Song is a actually a beige-gold, 20 is a medium suede brown and 24 is a darkened brown black. I love that it’s called Leatherbound! That’s what it looks like – the dark leather cover of a book.Paul Joe Self Select Eye Color Eyeshadows Leatherbound Torch Song Truffle

Here it is in the palette – I think it goes quite well, although after using it for a few weeks I am finding the middle shade, Truffle, a bit too warm.

Here are the other 2 shades I got which are pinks. I know pink shadow isn’t for everyone but I really love them! Especially the lighter pretty pinks look great as long as you remember to line your eyes too! To avoid the super duper tired eye look (which I already have!).

Here is my half built palette:

To swatch, they don’t look drop down gorgeous, but they are actually pretty nice in texture and can be built up easily. I do like them a lot; most of these colours are suede with a tiny bit of shimmer, but 02 is quite glittery.  There are only 3 textures in the Paul & Joe Select shadows:

I’m glad I got a bargain with these eyeshadows!  I wouldn’t have paid full price for them again.

What do you think of these eyeshadows?

    I can never seem to find any Paul & Joe stuff on ebay =/ it may sound stupid but what do you search? I have tried Paul and Joe, Paul & Joe and just plain Paul Joe but normally nothing much comes up~

    Great bargain to pick up off ebay! I was a bit put off buying makeup off ebay for a while after falling for some fake Benefit stuff, but sometimes it’s just the easiest place to look for certain brands!
