This morning, I was raring to hit a luxury sale in town that was supposed to feature brands like Coach (!!) and Jimmy Choo shoes (!!!!) at up to 70% off. However, when I got to the venue at 10am, the line was so long I estimated it would take me at least 1 hour waiting time just to get into the hotel ballroom where the sale was at. So, I ditched it. Yep, walked out of the line after wasting 10 minutes of my life time 🙂
Instead, I headed off to Isetan at Lot 10 where I knew a Paul & Joe Cosmetics sale was on. And boy! Was I rewarded! It was quiet and I had all the time and space to browse in and chat to the sales people without grabbing or pushing – bliss!! This is what I picked up.
1) Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation with SPF25 PA++ No. 11 Lumiere (RRP RM159)
2) Paul & Joe Waterproof Curly Mascara in Noir (RRP RM86)
3) Paul & Joe Face Color in Pomme Doree – gold highlight/eyeshadow (RRP RM68)
I’ve never owned anything by Paul & Joe Cosmetics so getting their star products at a discount was awesome! When I saw the mascara, I knew this is what Nikki loves so I knew I had to try it. 😛 See how bad we all are for each other?! So, its all your fault I ended up with so many Paul & Joe items Nikki!!!
I got everything above for RM167 which is just a little more than paying full price for a foundation! Paul & Joe are well known for giving out awesome cute GWP products but I think I’m happier with the discounts 🙂 Reviews will follow as I test the products.
The Cosmetics sale at The Gallery Isetan at Lot 10 started today (only Isetan members today) is ongoing and feature Kanebo, Paul & Joe, Laura Mercier, Annick Goutal, T. leClerc (Banane loose powders are only RM118 now from a retail of RM159!) and some other perfumes. Its just a little sale but definitely worth checking out! Discounts are from 30-50% off the retail prices. Have fun! 🙂

WOW, Finally!!!! You have your own P&J products!!!! Hey no fair for blaming me! You went there ALONE with a choice of “to buy” or “not to buy” lol….I’m sure you like the discount that’s why you bought them! It is so worth to buy P&J stuffs if they are ON SALE! I never buy full priced P&J products, I always wait for sale then stock up! LOL Enjoy! and I’ll wait for your review!
@Nikki : LOL… Your rave reviews made me want them 🙂 They were a good price and a good time to try this brand to see how I like it. We hardly ever get discounts on cosmetics like this (in a civilised environment) without having a crazy crush at some obscure warehouse sale. Usually P&J is all about pretty GWP products.
Holy Cow! I hope I’m not too late for this!
i wanted to go to Isetan sale today as well as CdP has a good GWP right? Again, I had no time as I had to work. LOL me and work…
your haul looks great. i want to try Paul & Joe too but never know where to start.
Can I add JoJoba? Start with their Powder Foundation as what Paris B bought! ehhehe I’ve finished 2 already! And I like it that they have refills 😀
I want to try the powder foundation. I heard it is very silky smooth to blend into your skin. Gosh, i miss it. I wish i am in KL now. I couldn’t find any P&J in Boston. Hopefully there will have same sales in January and February, i can stock up some. 🙂
Hey, I was there too! *wink* Was eyeing the T.le Clerc powders cos I read your previous review on it, but had to pass cos I’d splurged on clothes downstairs. *sigh*
So many nice things that I wanna try but not enough $$$ to go around!
I quite like the foundation becos it’s sheer and looks pretty natural. But I agree, Paul & Joe cosmetics are so pretty. I love those special edition cases.
@Monstro : *giggles* you arent!
@jojoba: Yes there was a pretty goo CdP promo going on but I was in a bit of a rush so didn’t check it out. I’d only really heard of the good foundation and mascara so those are the 2 I picked up.
@Nikki: Thanks for the input!
@rinnah : You were?! Must have missed you then! DId you get any P&J? I totally breezed through the clothes without looking LOL…
@Sesame: I read your review too! Like I said we are all so bad for each other heh… P&J definitely specialises in pretty.
oh no!!! kanebo and LM on sale!!! i can’t go :(((((
Hey I love Paul n Joe foundations too, I have 2 of them:) I also picked up something in the sale in HK a while back!
30-50% off is quite a saving! And there’s Laura Mercier?! Goodies! 😀
@Jooj : Aww… I’m sure there’ll be others.
@MissSmall: Did you get any?
@Angie : Wish we had sales here – this is the first time I think.
so many! me have never owned any P&J products before too. please review soon 😀
@prettybeautiful : I’ll try to get to them as soon as I can. 🙂
Woah that’s a great discount you snagged. I’ll try P&J products. One day. :p
Omg.. you guys who catch Paul & Joe cosmetics on sale are lucky. I live in vancouver, canada, and forget about buying the products on sale, there’s only one place which carries this line with limited products too =(
@Joanne : This is the exception rather than the rule but I guess we ARE quite lucky 🙂
