Paul & Joe will release a makeup collection in Japan on July 1st to celebrate its fashion line’s 20th anniversary. (Paul & Joe’s fashion line debuted in 1996 while its beauty line was launched in 2002.) The collection includes:

– Makeup Collection A (above, limited edition, ¥9500)

The set includes:

  • Face Color Powder A in 039
  • Lipstick A in 025
  • Pressed Powder Duo A in 001
  • Pouch (S)
  • Bag

The bag becomes a cat’s face when it is turned inside out.

The set features past limited-edition items:

  • Face Color Powder A in 039 (from spring 2005)
  • Lipstick A in 025 (from spring 2004)
  • Pressed Powder Duo A in 001 (from the Makeup Collection set from fall 2012)
  • Pouch (S) (from summer 2006)

The first three items are slightly renamed for this set. The print on Face Color Powder A in 039 is also on Lipstick CS in 039 from spring 2005, Cosmetic Pouch II from holiday 2008 and Lipstick Case CS 022 from fall 2014.

Pouch (S) was released in Japan on June 1st, 2006 (according to In the UK, it was available as part of Paul & Joe’s holiday 2006 makeup collection, from which I got makeup items with the same hummingbird print. (As far as I remember, it was also available in the UK in summer 2006 or summer 2007 as a limited edition.) I still think the hummingbird print is the most beautiful print that Paul & Joe has ever released. (You can also see it in the header image of my blog.)

The only new print in this set is the chrysanthemum print on the bag/cat. It is also featured on one of the shirts from Paul & Joe’s 20th Anniversary Shirts Collection.
