I've never been one for cutesy things, and that extends to my taste in beauty products. I'll usually pick the sleek black and gold packaging over anything that's pastel-colored.
That said, I will occasionally fall victim to buying something just because it's so freaking adorable. My reasoning is that if it's under $10 and makes my inner child happy, then why not?
So far, my collection of beauty products with cute packaging is sadly small, but thanks to Tony Moly I feel like it's off to a strong start. I love the Peach Hand Cream because it really does smell like peaches and also really does look like--OK, it looks like a butt, actually. Great conversation starter, this hand cream.
I also love the Petite Bunny Gloss Bar. Yes, it's an adorable bunny; but it also smells yummy, plus it looks and feels great on my lips.
Here's what the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Juicy Cherry looks like on me:
It's on the sheer side but very buildable, feels hydrating, and lasts for a surprisingly long time.
I also like that all of the bunnies have their own facial expressions. Mine is extremely unamused.
Other than my Tony Moly products, I also have these mini pastel-colored razors. I found them at Forever 21 and picked them up on a whim. I haven't actually used them yet, but I just know they'll come in handy one day. Shaving those small, awkward areas (your upper lip, your bikini area, your big toe...) suddenly becomes adorable when you're using a tiny pink razor, right?
Now it's time for your Comments of the Week!
1. "Kelly Bee" had some great recommendations for short hair products:
Your hair looks so crazy good!! Sometimes if I'm lazy and sleepy I don't put anything in my hair (like today) and let everyone deal with whatever it is doing. But my hair routine changes based off how how greasy/dull/flat/crazy it is when I wake up. I use Batiste dry shampoo when it's greasy, water with lavender oil if it's crazy, Oscar Blandi texturizing spray if I wake up with helmet head, and for days where I need softness & shine I got a sample of Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil and it's awesome!
2. Like "StephJK," I am also going to buy the new H&M beauty products for the packaging (I mean, did you not just read my confession about buying products for the packaging?):
Not ashamed to admit that I will be buying some of that H&M stuff for the packaging.
This looks amazing!!! Also I just finished daredevil yesterday and I'm kind of dead inside. what do I do without my avocados at law??
Exactly! I read what Dita von Teese does, then go out and buy all the products. Then I read about secret Korean skincare regimens and am like, "but I just bought $1000 worth of serums and contour brushes." I just want the clouds to part and God Herself to speak to me from a burning bush about what the final word is on best beauty everythings.
