Hmm...perhaps I shouldn't have just admitted that fact?
So if it weren't for my "say no to gimmick" DNA, I would totally buy cosmetics based on what they look like! Pretty palette cases, designs on a lipstick case....they are som, or if you are even going to use it. I must admit that I have such products, but they are items I do use.
Recently, I purchased a couple things from Benefit's website and when I received the package at my door and opened the cardboard box, I was greeted by beautiful tissue paper:
Having something packaged like so just makes me feel so special and pampered! I love it! Makes me feel like I splurged and I am opening a fancy present. They even sent me a fancy shmancy catalogue:
I know it's probably a waste of paper and it is killing trees, because I can get the same info online, but it's just so nice and feels like I am looking through a beauty magazine where each page has something interesting on it, unlike most mags full of ads. Alas, a battle between my pampered princess side and my go green side.
