[productsample] When I was in Tokyo a couple of years ago, I found a beauty store in Harajuku where you could mix and match your lipstick and case. I couldn’t resist and ended up with a pink case covered in even pinker flamingos containing a pink lipstick! Paul & Joe have this mix and match concept locked down, but it’s nice to see a more high street version from 3ina or Mina, depending upon how you want to spell it.. I googled and either brings up the right website.
The lipsticks you can choose from are predominantly matte but there are a couple of metallics and a couple of shinies in there too. There are 16 different cases priced at £4 each (the lipsticks are £6.95) so I think you get a lovely, individual product for just over a tenner.
The lipsticks that I have to test are very pigmented – strong in colour and strangely old-fashioned in scent. I was chatting to someone on Twitter today about lipstick scents and didn’t expect to find that Lauder-esq premium, powdery-sweet scent in these.
In the swatch, from bottom to top: 270, 245 and 503. Find them HERE.
