It’s usually the packaging that catches my eye, but i never go for JUST packaging, even though the new to the beach lustre drops were tempting :-p

Quite often! Sometimes I don’t even care about the product at all! On the other hand, if I dislike the packaging, it makes me less interested in the product, no matter how good it is. I tried an EL lipgloss once and I liked it, but I don’t care for EL packaging (I don’t like gold and it looks to old-lady to me), so I don’t own anything from that line.

Does perfume count? I totally bought the Marc Jacobs Lola perfume, just for the big pretty bottle..plus it smells amazing!

So did I, and my purchase came with a purple hatbox with the flowers on it also. Swoon! I think the hatbox was 50% of the reason I bought it.

Lipstick Queen Chinatown glossies and Too Faced Leopard Print Bronzer! Looooove the packaging (and a great product)

I just ordered a UD Pocket Rocket lipgloss because of the packaging. Well, I liked the color too, but the packaging really pushed it over the edge. 😀

i want to buy the timothy one because my boyfriend’s name is timothy and the description fits him to a T. i’m not even really interested in the product though

No, but bad packaging will stop me from a purchase far more than good packaging will pull me into one.

Hell no!!!!I feel am way to smart to be convinced by just packaging….I always find myself checking the inside product regardless of the packaging.Besides….how many times do u ever get to use the packaging once u like the product?

Cute packaging can definetly sway me towards buying something , but I try to only buy things that I ‘ll actually use so I wouldn ‘t buy something just for the packaging if I didn ‘t like the product .

I bought the MAC Hello Kitty collection just for the packaging because I wasn’t too crazy about the colors.

Cute packaging will make me take a second look but functional packaging will make me purchase a so-so product. I don’t have a lot of storage so I hate bulky packaging. I depot like mad most of the time but I found a great palette in clearance a my SDM a few weeks back. I hated the shadows but I pressed my own into it and it works great. I like the palette because it can fit into a card slot in my wallet but still had a little < 6g of product. No wasted space.

I would never buy a product just for packaging! For me, if I buy a product I love and it has great packaging it’s an added bonus. But I just don’t have the money to waste to spend it on something as unnecessary as cute packaging.

My boyfriend likes the perfume bottles from Jean Paul Gaultier – he thinks the shape of the bottle is unique (woman’s body from the hips up) we went looking and I didn’t like any of the scents. He wanted me to buy one, finish it, and then he can display the bottle at work…lol. I asked if he was interested in the men’s version and he gave me a funny look 🙂

Lol…not usually… though it does help me decide what to finally get. Like the to the beach refined bronzer. I knew it was perm, but the packaging was so cute… and it was my first bronzer. 🙂 so I bought it and now have my msf nautral in the cute compact for touchups. 🙂

When I first got interested in make up, I would do it all the time! It’s only now that I’ve understood my skin tone and the colours that suit me, so I’m very prudent!

A few times, and I am actually quite happy with them. I am the type of consumers that read a lot of reviews and even go to play around with them for a while before I decide if I want to buy them. Oh, based on your Urban Decay Naked Palette review (love it!), after thinking for days, I decided to order one from Sephora today, eventhough I have not seen it in real. I bought Coco Mademoiselle in Twist and Spray because of the sleek and fun design. Same for the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palettes, after the Ammo, I just have to own the Deluxe, Skull and Wallpaper.
