    What we're about to tell you goes against something instilled in us at a very young age — namely, not to judge a book by its cover. But, here goes (sorry, Mom): When it comes to beauty products, we are easily seduced by exterior appearances. That's right — we're suckers for pretty packaging.

    But, really, can you blame us? We've seen far too many a pleasing product wrapped in not-so-pleasing packaging — and we won't stand for that kind of injustice being thrust upon poor, innocent cosmetics.

    Luckily, for the items ahead, that's anything but the case. In fact, the packaging for these products is so darn pretty, we'd purchase them just to gaze upon the outer wrappings alone. So, sit back, relax, and feast your eyes upon the most alluring, awe-inspring packaging for the holidays — and, oh yeah, survey the contents, too.
