Celebrating 15 years of Paul & Joe beauty, part 1

Hello, March!  As it is the first day of the month in which spring supposedly will arrive, I thought I'd share Paul & Joe's spring 2017 collection.  Consider this part 1 of a 2-part celebration of the beauty brand's 15-year anniversary (not to be confused with the Paul & Joe fashion line's 20-year anniversary, which occurred last year).  The summer collection will have yet more cat-shaped goodies so that will be part 2.  ;)  But first, the spring items.

These face color powders are too cute, as usual.  I believe the cat print with the red background appeared previously on nail polish boxes from the spring 2012 collection.  And do you not love the cat in glasses?!

The cat design on the powders is also borrowed from the spring 2012 collection, only this time there's the addition of hearts.

It's always in the details with Paul & Joe.  All of their collections are pretty and/or adorable, but it's the little things like this puff that make them stand out.  It's soft but I don't know how practical it would be to apply blush or highlighter.  I do know that it's just precious.

I need more cat-shaped lipsticks like I need a hole in the head, but here we are.

The patterns on the lipstick cases are from the spring fashion collection.  PJ at A Touch of Blusher has amazing descriptions of them so I'll just direct you to her site since I can't describe them nearly as well!  I didn't purchase the accompanying square compact cases since they have the same prints, especially since I'm not actually using them anyway.  I figured the lipstick cases were enough from a collectible standpoint.  Eh, who knows, I'll probably cave and get them later. ;)

The bird print was from the Paul & Joe Sister line; the other 2 are from the regular Paul & Joe women's collection.

While I was working on this post some Museum staff members wandered in, as they tend to do (they like to keep me company while I blog) and got into a little mischief.

En garde!

Well, at least they're not eating them, right?

Overall I thought Paul & Joe did a great job.  Not quite as outstanding as some previous collections, mind you, but they provided the usual eye candy, and it was definitely Museum-worthy and appropriate for spring.  What do you think?
