A patterned break from Stila girls
Light as a feather: Guerlain 2011 holiday

Going ornamental: Paul & Joe holiday 2011

Paul & Joe is thinking outside the box (har har) with their holiday collection.  From the website:  "The Ornamental Collection is a fun and festive collection which mingles the elegance of a traditional Christmas with the playful spirit of holiday whimsy.  This season adorn yourself with Paul & Joe Beauté and celebrate the holidays with this delightful assortment of Christmas-inspired treats.  Ornamental holiday 2011 - deck yourself with Paul & Joe."

The stand-outs from the collection are the eye shadows, packaged in paper trapezoids that can double as tree ornaments (or you could even put them on a table or shelf).

The collection also contains nail polish sets:

And a powder compact called All I Want for Christmas.  It's reminding me a little of a striped Christmas tree ornament.

While I do think the ornament eye shadows are cute, the designs on the boxes aren't really knocking my socks off.  It's basically Paul & Joe's signature chrysanthemum with a few stars and dots thrown in.  Not their best work, but the spring collection promises to be pretty cool.  I'm stalking beautyhabit.com and b-glowing.com for its debut, and I already have a blog post title all ready to go (if any of my fellow beauty bloggers take it I will be very upset!)
