I have a sweet tooth. I cannot pass up a candy dish; there is something so deeply appealing about seeing the sugary bouquet of pastels laid out before you, just beckoning you to taste. Similarly, I cannot say no to a product packaged in saccharine hues, looking tasty as a lollipop. And it seems that the beauty industry has witnessed a whole pack of such products crowding drugstore shelves everywhere.
There is, of course, Jessica Simpson’s Dessert line, which comes a little too close for me in blurring the lines between things I want to eat and things my doctor would heavily advise me against eating. Still, the products look delicious and sell like hotcakes, or more appropriately Little Debbie cakes. Find the cavity inducing body products at Amazon.
I, however, prefer something a little less tempting with a bit more marketing flair. The Miso Pretty line, brought to you by Blue Q-the makers of such other well-designed, gimmicky products as Dirty Girl and Bitch bath products – is absolutely adorable to behold in its beautifully illustrated packaging and even better to actually use.
I love the Miso Pretty eyeshadow ($10) which comes in what looks like a cute little journal and provides a surprising palette of different hues with varying amounts of shimmer (the one entitled pink only has one rosey-shade included). The colors go on as sugary as they look in the case and have a pretty long lid-life. Cute in the package and cute on my face; I’m completely sold.
