Burberry! It’s gorgeous, functional, high-end and quality. I love, love, love my Burberry compacts, and I love that the lip velvets are matte packaging while the lip covers and lip mists are gunmetal, so you can tell them apart. Half the reason I think I love Burberry so much is the packaging, honestly (although their products are awesome).

For me its Urban Decay. Purple is my favorite color and I love that its the perfect match of pretty and edgey. For example their de slick compact is a beautiful purple compact but if you look closely there are little skulls and things engrained onto the cover.

i’m sure a lot of ppl will disagree with me, but i’m a huge fan of Sugarpill’s packaging. it’s super cute, sturdy and not bulky. bulk is one thing i can’t stand in packaging. i have too much makeup to deal with bulk!! haha

I depends on the actual product, really. I really like the L’Oreal Infallible shadows, as they stack easily, and the label actually shows the color & I don’t have to try to read the shade names or flip over several of them to find what I need. Sonia Kashuk is another one I love; they have a strong magnet that securely holds them closed, yet they open without having to dig my nail in the compact to open it. They’re also clear, yet sturdy, plastic, so again the shade is obvious. They are also easy to store. I guess I prefer functionality above all else.

If I had to go for aesthetics, I’d say NARS; I like the fact that they all look very uniform, are very sleek & simple, and everything just matches. Then again, the uniformity also makes for great storage.

All the makeup brands which are MADE IN FRANCE or MADE IN JAPAN…that means, not Chanel items and Made in the USA. Guerlain, Christian Dior, Clarins, Cle de Peau, Sisley and all those discontinued French brands which I have loved and adored. The package is exquisite, the label at the back is properly placed and NOT lopsided, unlike Tom Ford (made in Italy and I pay a fortune). The box is pristine. There is descriptions inside to tell you how to use it. Just plain beauty. The lipstick is NOT NICKED, like Tom Ford when you get it. Back in those hey days, before Loreal or whoever acquired YSL, the gold packaging container for YSL was made from fine gilded gold as it states on the box.

If you live in the USA and you want a Chanel product Made in France, you could either ask for it to be sent to you directly from Paris (I don´t know about the cost though) or you could just go to Mexico to get one. The Chanel products that are sold in Mexico are Made in France. Lol if you go for tourism to Cancun or something you could look for them…

Without a doubt: Rouge Bunny Rouge. I love Guerlain, but their packaging has never made me buy a product I would’ve otherwise skipped… RBR though… woooow

-Sugarpill… although not fan of the paper packaging for the 4 color palettes on general I like their packaging.

-NARS… simple, black, sleek.

-Kat Von D… those intricate rose designs!

I can’t believe I forgot about KvD! I have to say, though, I much prefer the original palettes. They’re easier to store, and with the exception of Ludwig & Beethoven (which are identical), they’re easier to distinguish when I’m in a hurry. I also like the way the shades are laid out in the palette. Also, they coordinate better with other KvD products & even my NARS products.

Guerlain – with each and every single product the packaging looks and feels luxurious (as it should considering the price).

I really like the tubes Givenchy gelee d’Interdit comes in. I like Urban Decay packaging, even though it often ends up being less practical. I like all Chanel’s classic perfume bottles, and the ridged gold tubes one type of Estee Lauder lipstick comes in.

Packaging definitely influences what I buy I guess…
