Are you willing to pay the price for a product’s packaging?
Pictured above is the signature, ultra elegant Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick. This lipstick case is probably one of the most interesting pieces I own amongst all of my beauty products. It’s both functional and extravagant, and I’d wager that you usually don’t get both. The rub is, of course, that you are undoubtedly paying for the packaging upgrade. (In case you’ve never drooled over one of the Rouge Gs–you lucky soul–these retail for $46 a pop.)
Knowing that, does it make it any easier to resist the product? To cry, “Pfft! I see through you! No thank you, you won’t sucker me in!” Personally, after testing out many shades of Rouge G, no, it does not. Not at all. It is still one of my favorite lipstick formulas, and so the hefty price tag, even for packaging that I don’t really want to pay for, is something I will still pay. But this is only because I find the product to be exceptional–if the product was just so-so, I think (or at least, I’d like to believe!) I would have no trouble passing these by.
