"Each time I see a little girl
I can't resist a joyous urge
To smile and say
Thank heaven for little girls
For little girls get
Bigger every day..."
Whether it's patrolling the beauty counters, swatching products, purchasing pretty-pretties, or getting a cornucopia of cosmetics in the mail, Maurice Chevalier's Thank heaven for little girls (Frenchman voice included) always plays in my head...one of my many internal shopping soundtracks.
I'm a pushover for attention-to-detail, and dior.com always satisfies with the meticulous care they put into the packaging of their online orders; it's the perfect "merchandising cherry" to complete the entire cosmetics purchasing experience.
Don't you love it when brands personalize their shipping boxes?! Also, Dior is being a makeup tease with this box within a box packaging.
The box has the same textured surface as the Dior shopping bags.
Another charming detail is the attached lid has a magnetized closure.
Receipt enclosed in a discreet envelop. No need for Aki to know how much we spend.
Dior logo tissue paper and sticker.
And the cream-filling of this proverbial cosmetics doughnut: the limited edition 5 couleurs couture eyeshadow palette in 686 Tangerine Dream, and Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara in 982 It-Violet.
Do you enjoy it when brands put that extra effort into packaging?
