Beauty products to buy for their black and white packaging

Ever heard the saying, ‘women who wear black lead colourful lives’? Well not surprisingly, our penchant for monochrome stems farther than just our dresses and shirts.

And truth be told, we’re more likely to buy a beauty product if we like the look of it.

Here are 16 beauty products with black and white packaging to add to your beauty shelves.


Clearly Corrective White Toner

A definite bathroom addition, this white toner gently retexturises skin as it’s infused with hydrating actives for noticeably cleaner and softer skin for an overall luminous, clarified complexion. 

Bobbi Brown

Brightening Lip Gloss

Brightening in name, but not in colour, this lip gloss is more than just a simple classic. It’s also infused with pearls which give lips a luminous, glowing sheen for a plumped-up pucker. 


Dark Desires Collection The Well Eye Shadow in Beg For It

Aptly named, this black eyeshadow really does have us begging to try it. Pair it with autumn’s bold black liner trend and finish it off with a flutter of M.A.C 1 Lashes and we’ll be on our knees pleading to add it to our vastly growing collection of black beauties.  

Elizabeth Arden

Advanced Eye-Fix Primer

This ultra-sheer cream is light in texture and cleanly packaged, just the way we like it. Proof that bells and whistles don’t always grab our attention. 


Pro-Prime Pore-Refining Primer

A true diehard NARS fan loves the brand not just for its excellent quality of products, but also for the exquisitely clean and simple packaging. This oil-free primer not only looks good on the shelf, but refines the look of pores, smoothing out the skin for a velvety matte finish. 


coconut frosting shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath

A personal favourite in my shower routine, this ridiculously good looking (and smelling!) formula is ideal for those who love to multitask. Lather up your limbs and your locks for head-to-toe softness. 


American Cream Conditioner

The king of making black and white look infinitely cool, this conditioner is milkshake-thick with a strawberries and cream fragrance. The best part? The splash of orange juice, which is used to add shine – since acidity makes the hair cuticles lie flat to reflect more light. 

Elizabeth and James

Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo

This addition comes as no surprise, given the brand is owned and created by two stylish twin sisters – Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen. And since their tousled tresses are widely coveted, this product and its packaging make for the perfect match. Their signature fragrance features in all their products, proving their brand may be ruled by two, but is completely in unison.  

Mr. Smith

Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner

Pay a visit to the Mr. Smith website, and you’ll find an abundance of haircare products that are a double threat: they not only work a treat, but look damn good while they’re at it.  


Micro Cleanse Super Scrub

At bh, we’re big fans of Alpha-H products, not just because they look great, but because they perform miracles. This supercharged exfoliant is formulated with skin-enhancing ingredients to improve the complexion, leaving it feeling instantly fresher, brighter, clearer and smoother. 


Platinum Hair Styler

Cementing its place firmly in all our bathroom cupboards, ghd straighteners really are one of a kind. These super sleek and stylish straighteners aren’t just a pretty face, they’re also proven to be kinder to our hair. Want more good news? It comes in matte black and white, to fulfill all your wildest monochromatic dreams. 

Jo Malone London

Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Dry Body Oil

Not only is this body oil luxurious in feel, the packaging is super stylish too. This amber and ginger lily scented oil leaves skin soft and superbly fragrant.


Core Collection Black Onyx

We love our darker nail shades – they never go out of fashion, and nobody does dark fingertips quite like OPI. Non-streaky and fast-drying, they make a great statement, all year round. 

Napoleon Perdis

Auto Pilot Moisture Mist

Only Napoleon can take something plain black and make it look flashy. This hydrating facial mist not only looks but feels super cool on the skin. Just a light spritz refreshes the complexion to give it a boost of moisture. 

Mecca Cosmetica

Clean Slate Remover

Another impressive product to add to the stylish shelf, this ultra-gentle no-rinse formula dissolves while instantly removing all traces of make-up and oily residue. From a brand like Mecca, would we expect anything less? Even if it didn’t work, we’d still buy it for its clean-cut appeal.  


Professional Brush Set

What’s a monochrome gallery without a gorgeous brush set? This one from Nutrimetics contains eight brushes, each contained with nylon fibres for a softer, more luxurious feel. 

What’s your favourite colour? Do you tend to buy things based on their packaging?
