Just for looks - beauty products

Confession: I am a sucker for packaging.  I judge books by their covers.  I buy products based on how they look.  I am the reason companies spend billions of dollars on marketing and advertising.  So I decided to do a post on what I would buy, if money were not an issue, based purely on looks (and it's pretty much true that the most beautiful products are also the most expensive).  

Today I am featuring beauty products.

Sleek and sophisticated, plus it just looks luxurious!

Cute and natural-looking

Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation, order here.  Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation brush, order here.

Fresh and vintage-esque

Benefit Cosmetics, Dandelion blush, order here.

Simple elegance

Luxurious and jealousy-inducing

YVES SAINT LAURENT Rouge Volupté Shine, purchase here.

Clean and polished

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer, purchase here.

Wish lists are great for keeping track of what you want to buy in the future.  And they're also great for other people to keep in mind for birthdays and Christmas presents.  hint hint  ;)

Do you make purchasing decisions based purely on packaging like I do???  What's on your wish list these days?



*Please note, I have not tried any of these products and I am not necessarily recommending them.  Also, I provided links for easy purchase, but these are not affiliate links and I am not making any money off of this post.


  1. I've used benefit blush in dandelion in the past and it is a great product! I love the look of the tarte brush, but I am a huge sucker for makeup brushes x

    1. I've been on the fence about Benefit Dandelion blush, just because I don't NEED another blush, but I think I'm going to give it a try soon!


Thanks for reading. I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a comment!
