Even though the main reason we buy makeup is to use the product inside the package, there are some cases where we buy the product because we love the packaging. Hello—how chic does a pretty perfume bottle or a gorgeously-wrapped soap look on a vanity or bathroom counter?
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to showcase just how eye-catching some of our fave beauty products truly are. Get ready to “ooh” and “ahh” over these fabulous beauty picks!
Obviously, we collegiettes love anything that has to do with chocolate, so when this collection came out we totally swooned. The eye shadow palette is designed to look just like a chocolate bar, and the shadows are pigmented with cocoa powder, so when you open it up it smells just like chocolate. Yum! The collection also features a chocolate-scented bronzer in a glam gold container—seems like Willy Wonka may have had something to do with it?
We adore how often MAC releases special collection cosmetics wrapped up in the prettiest packaging. The current Proenza Schouler collection radiates a neon vibe, and is ultra-chic. In the past, MAC has released other special edition cosmetics, such as the Wonder Woman collection and the Betty and Veronica collection. Most recently, a collection for The Simpsons was launched as well, each with their own unique look.
These cheek stain sticks are wrapped up in delightful packaging, from floral patterns to watercolor prints—is it just us, but does it make applying color that much more fun?
How adorable are these little bars of soap? We love the titles of the different scents too—we'll take some Happy Days, thank you very much. The dainty little bows are the perfect feminine touch, and the fonts are girly with just the right touch of elegance.
Marc Jacobs is one of the most well-known designers for a reason—his products are top notch, and are always visually appealing. There was the original Daisy perfume, with the two sweet white daisies on the side of the top of the bottle, but soon came Daisy Dream and other varieties, all decorated with beautiful flowers in a variety of on-trend colors for every season. These perfumes will have you smelling fantastic, and will look great on your vanity too!
