Makeup products are often hidden on shelves and tucked in drawers to clear clutter from your vanity. But some special products deserve a spot on your makeup table because of their gorgeous packaging and top performance.

Louboutin’s spiked packaging, for instance, channels edgy, luxe vibes while housing products that will impress. Vintage-inspired beauty brand Besame Cosmetics will make your vanity look like a classic 1920s dressing table, only without the nasty ingredients. And Guerlain’s pearl powder is so famous for its tin packaging that the brand releases a limited edition tin every holiday season.

While it’s never a good idea to judge a product by its packaging, these products look good and perform even better. Check out these 20 beauty products that deserve a spot on your vanity.
