15 Makeup Products So Pretty You Almost Won't Want To Use Them (Almost)
I suffer from a bit of a catch-22 with makeup, and I don't think I'm alone. The problem is, I tend to lust more after pretty looking makeup products, but if I ever get my hands on said products, I'm hard-pressed to ruin the beautiful embossments or carvings by *gasp* using them. Because even though makeup is used to create art in the first place, when they're presented as pieces of art, it just seems wrong to ruin them. Unless, perhaps, the formula is just that good.
So if you too find yourself questioning whether or not ruining the prettily presented product is worth it, here are 15 of the prettiest cosmetics on the market with the formula to back them up. You know, in case you do get the courage to dip your brush in them.
