Frizz Free Friday: Pretty Packaging

1.06.2012

Collages1

From l to r: Deborah Lippman nail polish, Sonia Kashuk brushes (discontinued but UGH so pretty), YSL Rouge VolupĂ©, Clinique's newest Barely Lipstick shades, Stella McCartney The Print Collection Fragrance, Nars Body Glow & Monoi Oil,  Fairy Drops mascara, Chanel mirror compact, UltraFlesh panthera mascara, Tom Ford eye palate Bobbi Brown jelly lipglosses


Call me superficial, but sometimes I judge from the packaging. I can't help it! My mom is a graphic designer, so I grew up paying attention to how she worked, which involved looking at packaging and wondering how it reflected the product it housed. Nars & YSL are the ultimate for me in that realm, you know the makeup is amazing, but the packaging is really sleek & glamourous.

 Doesn't it feel wonderful to pull out a tube of lipstick out of your purse that looks like a piece of jewelry, or to catch the light going through a pretty bottle of perfume on a windowsill? I may not wear a ton of makeup, but I do especially love when something that looks pretty makes you look even prettier!

Completely agree! I have all my perfume bottles out on display as they look so pretty, and it makes picking a perfume everyday really pleasant :)

Pretty packaging really does make all the difference in pride for a product being seen. That's a nice selection.
