    What a unique post! Funnily enough I have 3 of the same products! Although I don’t mind the born to run palette I absolutely hated the stay matte palette! Bought it twice and cracked twice – really did put me off. Great post!

    I have the same issues with the born to run, the physicians’ formula, and the wet n wild one! Great post, it’s so funny, because I originally had an issue with the born to run palette, cause the packing is an ugly design! Then, I got used to it, but now that you bring it up again, it’s like I can’t un-unsee it! Great post han xxx

      So glad it’s not just me! Thank you, I am so glad you think so. Haha, sorry for reminding you about it. It’s such a weird choice isn’t it? Thank you so much xx

    I also don’t get on with the Wet n Wild highlighter packaging. Mine has broken because the clasp is so flimsy. It only doesn’t bother me because the highlighter is so affordable!

    Lol the Physician’s Formula packaging is not the one. The little sponge it comes with is so rubbish, they should just get rid of it altogether because the bronzer is BOMB.

    Haha your comments on the Born to Run packaging made me laugh so much. I never got the palette because I wasn’t a fan of the colour story but what you said about Pinterest throwing up is TOO accurate lmao

      It’s a shame that they don’t fix the clasp, as it is such a lovely highlighter. At leas it’s affordable like you say.

      I have no idea why they still include it, does anyone actually use it? It’s such wasted space.

      I am so glad you think so haha! It’s so weird isn’t it?!xx

    I’m so glad someone mentioned the Colourpop Go Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette. I’m sure it’s beautiful so I decided to use it at the gym and oh my god one of the eyeshadows completely smashed (ofc it had to be the shimmery white one) and it went everywhere. The packaging is so useless. Also I think the Rimmel matte powders are notorious for bad packaging. Mine are always broken meaning I can only use it at home but it’s so cheap so I think I’ll continue repurchasing sigh haha

      I know what you mean, I’ve not really seen anyone else talk about the packaging of it, but it’s not the best. Oh my God, that’s horrendous! That’s one of the best shades too!! Yeah the price definitely helps to redeem the Rimmel powder, but I really hope that they make it more sturdy one day xx

  5. Jenny in Neverland says

    Ah such a great post! I used to use that Rimmel powder back when I was like, 12 I swear, HOW has the packaging not changed haha! I’ve had those before where the plastic just breaks in your hand too. I see what you mean with the UD palette feeling very… Tumblr-esque!

    • luxuryblush says

      Thank you so much, I’m so glad you think so! I know what you mean, you’d think they’d have changed it, because it’s just not cutting it!! It’s so bad. I’m so glad that it’s not just me who thinks so xx

    I love these types of videos on YouTube and I’m glad someone did a written version! So thank you! I completely agree with you on the Wet & Wild highlight- it seems like this happens with all of my products from them and it’s so frusturating!

    • luxuryblush says

      They’re good aren’t they?! It’s no problem, I’m glad you enjoyed it. It’s so annoying isn’t it? You’d think they’d update the clasps, so it protects the products xx

  7. Ashlee Stuart says

    I completely agree with you about the Physician’s Formula range. I enjoy a lot of their products, but the packaginging just throws me off. I had a blush a few years back that basically took up all of my makeup bag when I traveled and it drove me nuts!

    This was such an interesting post! I’m definitely someone who always wants the pretty looking products 😂 but one thing that does bug me is when the writing rubs off the packaging!xx

    I would have to agree with you on most of the packaging here. Though I do like ColourPop I have the blush palette from them and it is not fading or hard to open. But I think it is later then Going Coconuts.

    I shop with my eyes a lot and I’m driven to cute looking packages as well, I’m definitely guilty of buying some items I barely used just because they looked cute. But as long as the product is great, I can put up with the not so good looking package 😉


  11. Siobhán says

    Anything that doesn’t close properly would really bother me, but I love that UD palette packaging because it’s so different from what they usually do! Nars rubbery packaging sometimes bothers me as it gets so grubby! x

  12. New Lune says

    I love this post! The idea is so unique! I hate the UD Born To Run palette’s packaging as well. I never even considered buying it purely because of the packaging haha x

  13. themakeupaficionado says

    I feel like you read my mind! The butter bronzer, wet n wild highlighter rimmel stay matte powder are at the top of my list regarding makeup with crap packaging!

  14. The Newbury Girl says

    lol I totally agree with so many of your picks here – the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is such amazing quality (literally the top ranked in my collection), BUT the packaging truly sucks. It’s too big and clunky. Also, I feel like so many CP products’ lettering fade away after a lot of use.

    • luxuryblush says

      Glad we’re on the same page haha! It’s an amazing bronzer isn’t it, it’s just such a shame about the packaging. I suppose it’s what comes with the low price tag xx

  15. Not-So-Modern-Girl says

    I love this post, it’s so original! Packaging is the first thing we see when we buy something- and so it’s good you’ve given some of these a try despite packaging that’s a bit of a let down. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • luxuryblush says

      Thank you so much! That is so true. Most of these products are actually great, it’s just a shame about the packaging. It’s no problem, thank you for stopping by xx

    WHen I first saw your picture I was like, what’s not to like about the packaging of the UD Born To Run palette? But now I’ve read it, it’s purely the aesthetics on the outside that bother you. I agree on that, it doesn’t suit the rest of the brand to be fair. But I love the practicality of that packagin, it’s sturdy yet slim and has a huge mirror on the inside.

    Also totally with you on the Rimmel Stay Matte powder lid, I cant’ believe we’re in 2020 and they haven’t solved that issue yet :’D

    Love, Charline | Charline Has a Blog
