Leaving us breathless: Paul & Joe fall 2009 collection

Paul & Joe shook up their fall collection by releasing oval-shaped eye shadow duos, as opposed to their usual round shadow singles.  Called "Breathless", the lineup featured 3 duos and 3 lipsticks.  While the outer patterns and colors don't exactly scream fall to me (bright pink and purple, really?) the shadows themselves were good autumn choices. 

"So breathtakingly beautiful it will leave you speechless.  Skin that's deliciously smooth and firm.  Mesmerizing, seductive color...Paul & Joe presents an enticing, bold collection creating a new feminine cool that's sure to leave you breathless."  Eh.  I sort of feel like they haven't been putting as much effort into the theme copy as in past seasons, but really, it's all about the packaging, right?!

One of the things I love doing with each Paul & Joe collection is seeing whether any of the designs used on the packaging made an appearance on the runway.  Indeed, the cat on the Wild One duo was borrowed from a tunic:

Now that I've finally covered their fall collection, I'm gearing up for their holiday offerings.  ;)
