Previously, I used to faithfully snap up all the Paul & Joe seasonal collections but over the past year, this love affair has turned tepid as it seems like they are mostly recycling their products with different (albeit still fabulously cute) packaging and working the kitten theme to death. I still find their quirky aesthetic and prints to be a refreshing change from the sea of MAC-clones out there but they should work on improving their product quality and innovation as well. The holiday advent calendar could have been a real game-changer if they could have been bothered to actually put 24 decent products in it, instead of the measly six.
