I’m admittedly drawn to products with pretty packaging. And books with pretty covers for that matter. Anything rose gold or with finished with lovely lettering or sparkles I’m immediately drawn to like a magnet. But like books, it’s the inside that counts so I’ve tested some of my prettiest products to see if the product itself is as good as it looks.
This is a product I was fairly disappointed with. I was drawn to it, of course, by its packaging and after a quick swatch of it in Duty Free I was quite impressed. However, on arriving home and giving it a full test and try out it didn’t impress me as much as similar products have. So at a glance, it looks lovely but I’m yet to fall in love with this one.
I almost felt like I didn’t have to include this product as everyone already seems to be head over heels for this and have been for quite some time now. But I wanted to include it as the Maybeline counter in particular has many mascaras in it, too many to stand and look through in one go. So when buying a new mascara it’s often the case of scanning over the selection and picking up whichever one has the most alluring word written across it or looks the nicest. The Lash Sensational fitted ticked both of those boxes, however, pretty packaging doesn’t always determine a pretty product so in most cases it’s worth spending a little more time sampling in store.
What brand or product do you think has beautiful packaging?
