10 Interesting Lipstick Tubes
The second photo is simply titled lipstick plant, so I assume that those berries (seeds?) can be used to color one's lips. You know what else you can use? Schmancy lipsticks from various brands! Wow, I am so good at transitions. Anyway, I'll admit that I was pretty liberal with my definition of "lipstick tube"...
Is it in bad taste to start with one that I disapprove of? This is "Edward's Best 8-Color Lip Palette", which astounds me because it's so obvious that it's not a picture of the actual product. I cannot imagine why you would think it was a good idea to show Photoshop gradients instead of, y'know, real lip pigments. Here's what it truly looks like (thanks to Best Things in Beauty):
These are also not strictly packaging. What's cool is the sculptural aspect of the lipsticks themselves! Hourglass "Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick" and Clé de Peau Beauté "Extra Rich" refill.
Burberry "Lip Mist", a name that sounds like perfume for your mouth, which I don't necessarily object to. I love pictures of lipstick chunks.
Smashbox rings and Guerlain "KissKiss" lipstick. Speaking of Guerlain...
What is even happening? The package design of "Rouge G de L'Extrait" strongly reminds me of Charlize Theron in Prometheus:
Classy. Cold. Confusing. Paintings by xiaoli and doiron12, both from deviantART. Prometheus is a lovably terrible movie, by the way. Kinda like Avatar: gorgeous sci-fi visuals, but all of the characters are idiots.
Lancôme "L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor", because it's wearing a hat. Tory Burch "Pas Du Tout Lip Color" because tangerine enamel!!! Lastly, Benefit "Candy-Orchid Lollitint" because it's the cutest thing you ever did see:
Just kidding; the cutest thing you ever did see is obviously Lupita Nyong'o!
