Like any self-discerning beauty nerd, I know to never judge a moisturizer by its jar, a mascara by its tube, or a perfume by its tacky bottle. Sometimes the best products come in really ugly/tacky/boring/downright bonkers packaging
. And sometimes those superstar products come in the packaging equivalent of Charlize Theron — that is, elegant, ethereal, and take-your-breath-away gorgeous.
Sure, most of them may cost an arm and a leg, but if you're willing to put down the dough, you'll have a beauty goodie that doesn't just perk up your hair/skin/nails/makeup — it will perk up your very soul every time you gaze at it. Okay, maybe that went a little far. You get my drift.
