These Fall Beauty Products Are Worth Buying for the Packaging Alone

We judge everything with our eyes first and it’s getting harder and harder to resist splurging on products while cruising the aisles at Sephora. After all, many brands spend more on looks than results. Luckily, the choice doesn’t have to be between form or function.

The products below are worth buying for their cool containers, but there’s real substance behind those good looks. From foundations to fragrances and even lip gloss, we’ve rounded up some of the best-looking and hardworking picks to add to your fall arsenal.

Tom Ford


As with everything Tom Ford touches, this fragrance is sexy AF, from the packaging to its addictive scent.

IT Cosmetics

Lash Blowout Volumizing Mascara,

If you think this mascara looks more like a hot hair tool, you’re right. The brand teamed up with Drybar to create the blowout formula inspired by barrel hair brush technology to supply lift and volume that really lasts.


Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate,

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill eye cream container or formula. The cream defends against daily damage caused by friction and it’ll look great on your vanity.

Christian Louboutin

Alminette LoubiGlitterGloss,

A nonsticky lip gloss in several notice-me shades that comes in equally flashy packaging you can actually wear as a pendant.

Diptyque Paris

Do Son Perfumed Bracelet,

What’s better than a classic Diptyque Paris candle? How about a cool bracelet infused with one of the brand’s best scents.


L’Essentiel Natural 16H Wear Foundation SPF 20,

Not only is the packaging superbly sinuous, this new foundation looks super natural and really lasts.

Centerpiece All-In-One Elixir Spray,

The colorful floral bottle almost outshines the multitasking styling product inside that detangles, fights frizz and hydrates your locks.

Blitztrance Lipstick,

Everything in Pat McGrath’s cosmetics line is made for Instagram. And with brand new shades of her coveted pigment-packed lipstick in stock, you have even more reason to buy several.

Drunk Elephant

Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser,

Drunk Elephant’s buttery cleanser is bound to be another cult fave for the brand. Especially since it comes with a color-coordinated scoop.

Too Faced

Damn Girl! Mascara,

Inside and out, this mascara is a real conversation starter. Inside the geometric tube is a creamy mousse formula for immediate lash drama.

Benefit Cosmetics

Hello Happy Velvet Power Foundation,

As the temps cool down, this buildable powder foundation gives us a reason to smile, both thanks to its matte finish and cheery compact.
