The Lipstick League – Week of 6.26.17

Question of the Week: Have you ever bought a beauty product solely for the packaging?

EauMG’s Answer: Haha, yes. I wish I could narrow this list down but I’ve done it many times. This is why cosmetic companies keep doing all these annoying limited edition collections…people like me. I’ve been suckered into the MAC x Raquel Welch collection (one of the first I really remember buying all out because of a celeb). I was disappointed by TokyoMilk’s Poe’s Tobacco just because I bought it for the name and the raven. I was obsessed with the Mugler Womanity bottle (and later the fragrance). I really could go on and on. These days I’m trying to be a better, more conscious consumer. I’m still tempted by pretty packaging. And names. I’m terrible. What about you?
