Poll: Do You Choose Beauty Products Based On Their Packaging?

You've been told “Don't judge a book by its cover” plenty of times in your life. And while it's sound advice, do you actually follow it? How about when it comes to your beauty products?

We admit that we've been drawn to some fancy packaging. In fact, we're more likely to choose a perfume with colorful, creative packaging over one that looks plain and boring...or at least, we're more apt to try the other first. After all, we're only human and want our products to reflect our style and taste. Plus, it's easy to assume that a company that puts care into product presentation will also put more care into their actual products and their performance, right?

However, we've fallen prey to presentation and hype and ended up with a terrible product. Have we learned from our unwise decisions? Not completely. That's why we want to know what you think. Do you choose products based on their packaging? Tell us what you think in the *comments below.
