Lip Gloss Packaging Inspiration

I'm working on some lipgloss packaging today, and am hunting down the things that make people buy lipgloss (other than taste and colour).

Tokyo Milk Lip Balm
Pair your perfume with your lip balm! Tokyo Milk’s fragrances smell amazing with lip balms that smell just as good as they look. Available in Cherry Bomb, I Want Candy, and Let Them Eat Cake. They come in vintage-inspired bottles. Visit or

Dolce Chocolate Fondue Lipgloss

Calvin Klein available at What it is: Enriched with subtle flavor & formulated to do add a transparent shine with a hint of flavor.

Hard Candy Sweet Spot Lip Gloss  - super-sheer and light coloured gloss strong orange-blossom flavor. The packaging has a printed mod floral motif  with 1960s names. Available in six shades at

Too Faced Lip Bronzer Snow Bunny A golden-based lip gloss that bestows a sunkissed glow.
Has very pretty packaging (2 colour). Brand founder, Jerrod, designed these shades of gloss to "go steady" with our Bronzed and Beautiful Set. Available from
F21 Vial Lip Gloss available at has little charms on the lid - I have NO idea how they do it for the price.

Estee Lauder with a foil stamped logo and motif of a blossom.
Part of Estee Lauder's Summer Collection 2009 - Limited Edition Pure Color Illuminating Gloss in Lotus Blossom and Peach Blossom

Cherry Blossom Lip Gloss
The natural shine of a gloss combined with the nourishing benefits of a lip balm (with cherry extract from Luberon (in Provence). Free from mineral oil and lanolin.
From L'OCCITANE en Provence 

More from Estee Lauder... I thought this was so pretty I had to link the additional images

Bloom's packaging as always is heavenly, sweet and I wish I'd done it... I do love the illustrators that they select. I know one of them (not sure if she did all of them is Neryl Walker, who is amazing).

Smashbox Wicked Lovely Lip Gloss in Coy - who generally have very clean and non-fussy packaging have done a lovely job making the standard issue black top with clean tube look like something that a girl must-have, showing a simple tassel and a flourish can transfer a peach coloured tube. Available at

Bella Il Fiore line of skin care and cosmetics is sold in fashion-forward boutiques and fine department stores nationwide, including Kitson, Henri Bendel and Ritz Carlton Spas.
The super-femme line is consistently praised for its rich color formulations, exceptional ingredients and clever packaging. The Bella collection has grown to include an abundance of beauty essentials such as Kiss Me Now Lip Gloss, flirty Bella in Bloom face and eye palettes. Much-loved favorites – Private Eyes Mascara and the luxurious Honeysuckle Grapefruit Whipped Body Crème - are still available and better than ever. Each product serves up a serious dose of glamour wrapped in over-the-top girly packaging that is portable, user-friendly and fun. That’s the Bella way: simple, easy-to-use beauty that fits stylishly in your clutch, cosmetic bag, and life.
Cherry Oil Lip Gloss has taken a fresh approach and kept the tube itself clean and boxed the gloss in a gormet food packaging style. I like this - not seen much done like this - works well for natural cosmetics ranges with natural ingredients to shoot well.
Anna Sui available at
I love this - so vintage so feminine and definitely would incite me to buy.
