Setting sail with Paul & Joe

This will be another quick post since I don't have much to say, other than that Paul & Joe serves up some cuteness for summer yet again.

You know you can't resist the cat lipsticks...

Unfortunately I think the one the left is missing his eyeball!  Poor little fella, blind in one eye.  Fortunately his whiskers will help with balance and depth perception, right?  (Yes, I am concerned about his vision...but I'm trying to remember that it's just a lipstick and the cat isn't actually, you know, alive).  And I also have more of these from the fall 2015 collection.

The palettes were predictably adorable.  I especially loved the interiors - can't beat dolphins and boat-shaped eye shadows.

Interestingly, the prints for the second and third palettes are taken from the resort 2015 collection.  I'm not sure why they used it, but I guess it made for a good summer collection and they had already borrowed things from both their spring 2016 and 2015 collections.

Finally, there was this face powder, adorned with illustrations of vintage bathing beauties and playing card motifs in a cheerful yellow, white and red pattern.

This was also taken from last year's resort collection.

Beautyhabit was giving out this clutch as a gift-with-purchase.  You might remember this print from the summer 2014 blotting sheets.  This is easily one of my favorite Paul & Joe prints so I was very pleased to get my grubby little paws on it.

So what do you think?  Not their most inspired but as usual, it delivers a burst of summer fun with some delightful prints.  I have a feeling, however, that their fall collections are going to take the cake. ;)
