Friday fun: down the rabbit hole (again)

"Curiouser and curiouser!"
The cosmetics world is swept up in Alice madness. I promised more Alice in Wonderland goodies and here they are! Beautyhabit.com had these Paul & Joe sets available via phone order only - they won't be up at the website until March and the Curator simply couldn't wait that long. Each set is a tin containing a blotting sheet holder, blotting sheets and a sheer lip balm.
The outer box of set no. 1:
The outside of the tin:
The blotting sheet compact and lip treatment:
The other side of the lip treatment stick and the color (although I think it just goes on clear):
And now for the other set!
Blotting sheets and lip treatment:
What I love about Paul & Joe are the tiny details you might miss if you're not looking carefully. I love that each of the tins has Paul & Joe in the colors of each set - pink and blue:
I was never really into Disney movies when I was little, but Alice in Wonderland was the exception. I used to watch it all the time - my favorite scenes were when she was in the flower garden and of course, the tea party. I wish these sets had the Mad Hatter, but they're still adorable! While I do appreciate the originality of Urban Decay's illustrated Alice in Wonderland palette, I like that Paul & Joe went with the good old Disney version for its Alice collection, as it gives me happy childhood memories of watching this movie with my mom.
One more thing: RougeDeluxe posted a link to a release party for this collection in Taiwan. I wish there was something like that here, since it looks like a lot of crazy fun!
