Ribbons, pink packaging, silver paper, pretty iconic Japanese characters (Hello Kitty), pink, blue, floral motifs, butterflies……you name, I’ll buy it, if it’s pretty!
My best friend Jamie says I should be terribly, down right ashamed to purchase makeup, skincare, and beauty bits and bobs…just “because they are pretty…” She claims it’s wasteful, irresponsible, and just plain silly.
Do you think I should quit this friendship? Seems unhealthy right? Only kidding Jame I lurve you but you simply don’t understand at all!
Are you ashamed of purchasing makeup just because you like the pink box it comes in? Or the pretty blue bottle with the flowers around it? Or how about that adorable imprint of a butterfly in the blush you so dearly love? Does it shame you that sometimes you won’t even use these items because they are just too damn pretty?
Are you one of those types…
I am….one of those types. And I’m not ashamed in the least. My name is the Muse and I like pretty packaging. I’m a girl it comes with the territory doesn’t it? Pretty, shiny things are part of my generic makeup and I don’t feel the need to apologize for it at all.
I’m not denying that I’ll totally buy a completely crummy piece of makeup just because it’s adorable packaging wise. I’ll even go so far to say sometimes I can convince myself it’s the most amazing product evers simply because the packaging is so bloody cute.
But I loves me some gorgeous packaging.
What about you?
Are you willing to woman up and say it loud and proud that you buy makeup because of the pretty packaging?
Or are you in the closet hiding away your secret love of beautiful packaging from the world?
If it’s ugly do you sometimes pass it by?
Are you ashamed of yourself for purchasing maybe because it’s got pretty packaging?
