Just yesterday I brought two of those new “Baby Lips” lip balms from Maybelline – just because of the cute packaging. I find that to be better then the stuff I used to buy, like the mac end of the year couture stuff.

Ysl rouge volupte lipstick!!
But I
Love the product too!

I might get some d&g palettes too because I like the packaging but the quality needs to be there also when I spend that type of $$$

I don’t think I’d ever bought something because of the packaging. But I would not buy something because of the packaging.

Damn Straight! Although this only applies to when I buy asian cosmetics, as they have the cutest packaging and the quality is always amazing.

Julia, what kind of asian cosmetics you talk about? I’m really interested in buying them or cheking them out 🙂

If you put packaging and asian cosmetics together, you can’t leave out Jill Stuart ! Their packaging is to die for ! But the quality is there too so it’s worth it !

Definitely bought two Wonder Woman MAC lipsticks last year because of the packaging! I had wanted MAC lipsticks before (I never owned any before that) but the packaging really put me over the edge. I loved the colors though too but everything factored into my purchase!

If the product is pretty but I know what’s inside is useless and garbage, then I won’t get it. However, if the product inside is decent or good, pretty packaging is the tipping point for me!

I seem to be in the minority as I love the packaging on UD lipsticks. I love the formula, too, but I think the packaging sometimes sways me back towards it. I only own two of them, though.

I’ll buy something because of the packaging only if the quality is there as well in the product. (So basically, if two products are the same but one has better/prettier packaging, I’ll go with that one.) I won’t buy something that doesn’t work just for the packaging though – that makes no sense to me.

YSL rouge volupte – love the packaging & the smell is amazing, but the lipstick is too slippery for me and doesn’t last!

Guerlain rouge automatique packaging is so gorgeous & I mainly purchased for the packaging but I really do love the lipstick! Even if it was packaged ugly I would still buy it.

I’ve actually never bought anything for the packaging, as I don’t really see myself as a makeup collector and I don’t always care for buying LE products. I’d rather just drool over the packaging online/instore but not actually take the final leap and splurge on it. I do admit I love the logos on my high end products *gently pets chanel and R&R*.

The Original Naked Palette. Even after owing a million eyeshadows, many that were already similar colours, the Naked Palette was just way too convenient for travel (and play)!

Oh how i have wanted to, i have been resisting but it’s soooo tempting. I love channel’s packaging it’s just so black and shiny! I want to run and buy something from them every time i walk by the counter!

I was originally attracted to the Urban Decay Vegan palette because of the adorable packaging. I had to have it!

Yes! I’ve always regretted buying the Summer Rose Beauty Powder from MAC’s Give Me Liberty of London collection. The pretty packaging sucked me in but sadly I rarely ever use the product.

Yep…if it wasnt for the packaging I would not collected so much makeup….Halston blusher shaped like a heart….UD 15th anniversary eye shadow palette…..Chanel Lip Lacquer so stylish……Guerlain Rouge G….all my fancy brushes from YSL 20 years ago, Tom Ford bronzer blusher and all the likes NOT made in CHINA…..lipsticks of all brands just because of the containers…..Shu Uemura lipstick in those plastic looking containers(ugly and cute at the same time)….

Oh how I wisht I had Joe and Paul “Alice” packaging, Jill Stuart products….all the Japanese cutesy makeup….

Guerlain Rouge Gs , I initially bought them because of the beautiful packaging, I didn’t know that the formula is so fabulous that it worths the price

What immediately comes to mind is the Hello Kitty Sephora stuff. The perfume is just a generic drugstore vanilla scent…but yes I bought it just for the bottle O_O …it looks super cute in my collection though, so yes, it was worth it!

I’m a cat-lady-in-training so I bought the Katy Perry Purr perfume just for the kitty bottle. I thought the scent was okay, but it did really grow on me and now I love it. I did draw the line at Meow though. Didn’t like the scent AT ALL and didn’t want to pay that much for a pink (I don’t like pink) bottle just to dump it out.
