Right on the tail end of the Unicorn trend is the Barry M Unicorn Lip Paint – a colour changing lip stain that leaves a light wash of pink on the lips. The brand also has Genie (green) and Neptune (blue) and if you like the fun of a colour changer, they’re a snip at £4.99 (HERE) compared to other colour changers. Mostly, with this send out though, I thought you’d like to see how it was presented.
It arrived not in a box that looks like a book, but actually a book with pages with the products inserted into cut-outs within it.
I don’t think I’ve ever had anything like this before but it gives you a little insight into the inventive ways that brands use to give you a first impression. A lot of brands send out random products in a padded envelope without even a press release so it turns into a guessing game, and unbelievably, someone sent a glass jar in a padded envelope last week. Mine miraculously didn’t break, but Hayley at LBQ’s did, leaving her to open an envelope full of glass shards. Who knew blogging could be so dangerous! My ‘favourite’ was a bag full of nail polishes that had broken and consequently leaked – when I opened it on my lap, I had to put my jeans in the bin afterwards. Nobody forgets about opening an envelope of leaked self tan foam – a big bag of lightly frothy brown stuff! So, when a Unicorn lipstick arrives in a fairy tale pink book, I’m happy!
