7 Makeup Compacts That Are (Almost) Too Pretty to Use

Often we proclaim our love for Instagram-worthy product packaging and pretty bottles and compacts that we can display on our bathroom vanity, but we don't always talk about the aesthetically pleasing contents inside the packaging. Companies are constantly stepping up their game with swoon-worthy powders, eye shadows, highlighters, etc. that make us want to leave the compact open when we place it on our shelves. As much as we'd like to dip a brush into the powder or shadow, it's almost as though a force is pulling us away, telling us to step away from the compact and just let it live on in its full, unused form infinitely. Check out some of the most beautiful pressed powders we've ever seen below!
