9 Beauty Buys Too Pretty to Use ...


Some beauty buys, I often think, are just too pretty to use.

You know the ones – they either have really pretty packaging or feature arty, embossed details on the product itself.

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging so often I find it a shame when I have to mess it all up by actually using the thing!

The following are just some examples of pretty beauty buys that almost seem too good to use.

1. Paul & Joe Pearl Foundation Primer

Paul & Joe Pearl Foundation Primer

This foundation primer looks like a piece of confectionery rather than a beauty buy.

It’d be a shame to actually have to use this product.

It’s actually a universal foundation primer that acts as a base for makeup, but I know I’d much rather have it sitting pretty on my dressing table!2

2. Benefit Hervana Face Powder

Whenever I see these makeup palettes with all the colours adjoining, my inner pedant can’t help but feel like it would be a shame to blur the lines and mix them up.

At the end of the day, however, that’s the whole point and mixing the different shades creates a perfectly blended blush.2

3. Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow

Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow

Designer beauty products are a great way to treat yourself and add a little bit of luxury to your beauty routine.

This Chanel set of four eyeshadows features the iconic logo embossed on each shadow.

Unfortunately, with regular use, the embossing will fade making it that little bit harder to distinguish those little interlocking Cs.

4. Paul & Joe Cat Collection Blusher Sticks

These Paul &

Joe blusher sticks are just too darn cute!

They make transitioning into a cat lady seem so very appealing, am I right?

While I’m not sure how smooth the actual application would be what with all those awkward edges, these blusher sticks sure would make a fun and quirky addition to your beauty bag.
