Recently, I was very much drawn to the aesthetic of Benefit’s new skin care range – there was something about it that was cute without being silly, spa-like without being pretentious.  I love the look of Burberry and Guerlain’s lines overall but hate how they gather fingerprints so they’re just not perfect.

I am totally a sucker for anything with cute packaging. For instance I LOVE TokiDoki, solely for the packaging. Another brand that I think knocks it out is Harajuku Lovers (even though its not makeup, but its perfume so its beauty-ish?). Kat Von D I think makes awesome packaging and I also LOVE Anna Sui, I wish Sephora still had her makeup line!

I really love the packaging of the new Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes. Its cute and sturdy but color cooridinated so its easy to know which one you’re looking for and it comes with mirror. Ihate when compacts don’t!

I LOVE the Nfu-Oh nailpolish bottles, the packaging is so cute without looking over the top. And i gotta give the E.L.F Studio blushes a heads up, theyre so sleek and minimalistic without feeling cheap.

Haha, I’ve been considering wearing cloth gloves to pick up my Clarins recently – love the gorgeous gold finish; hate the fingerprints! 😛

Mac. Its functional, sleek, and professional. You never are paying for fancy packaging. Just simple packaging with flawless product inside.

Any products where you can tell that someone put effort & creativity into the packaging to make it unique , the best example is Urban Decay !

If we’re talking makeup packaging I’d have to go with MAC. I love how simple it is and it doesn’t look cheap either.

Most brands (high-end, indie and drugstore) seem to do Lipstick packaging quite well. Higher-end companies definitely do it better.
My favourite is the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte lipsticks. The case is the most beautifully designed I’ve seen. It’s not too plain but not too complicated; luxe. I love how the colour is on the case as well.

Sugar Pill Cosmetics. I keep all the boxes. The containers are like a design. Amy took the time to design and made it so special…and unique.

I love Dior packaging. It’s elegant and weighty, it doesn’t feel cheap at all. I don’t necessarily like the look of some of their limited edition pallettes, but many of their lipsticks and lip glosses as well as the 5-shade eyeshadow packages are really nice.

I love the NARS packaging. AMAZING! Personaly, I onlt own two of their products, since they don’t sell NARS in Norway, but I fell amidietly in love with the once I own.
