Favourite Perfume Bottles

Wednesday, 9 May 2018

In the beauty community, we spend a lot of time discussing packaging; sometimes because it's relevant to the efficiency of the product but, more often than not, because of the impact it has on the user experience and whether or not we think it's pretty. When it comes to perfume, sometimes it seems like the perfume bottle is more important than the scent inside because of the way we display them and coo about how pretty they are in reviews and hauls. It might seem trivial but the packaging plays a huge role in how we choose our products whether for purchase or use. So, today I'm turning all my attention to bottles and which ones I love the most.

Do Brand Aesthetics Matter? + Which appeal most to me

Tuesday, 1 May 2018

In February, I watched a video from Elle S that really got me thinking about product packaging and marketing and the subtle ways companies get us to emotionally relate to a brand and ultimately spend our money on it! This post is a chatty, serious one but I thoroughly enjoy critically engaging with the beauty community and industry and think it's an important part of beauty consumption.

Brands that get me every time

Thursday, 26 April 2018

A few weeks ago I talked about Brands that I'm loving and Palettes that are tempting me and both these posts have gotten me thinking about brands that I don't seem to have any self-control over. They release a product and I just have to have it! I always find their products on my wish lists and I await their new releases with baited breath. It's as though they've tapped into my beauty weaknesses and know exactly where to hit me.
