  • I love cute. George Clooney, Hello Kitty, baby bunnies? All cute. The eye-catching packaging on some beauty products (see top-rated ones here)? Ditto. But does what's inside get the job done, or are we just paying for the pretty exterior?

  • Sometimes, what you see is what you get. See proof in this list of 25 cute-on-the-outside products that really do what they're supposed to. Would you give in to buying them?

  • No. 18: MAC Lipglass, $14

  • MAC's limited-edition Give Me Liberty of London collection has turned its traditionally black packaging into a burst of Goth and floral fun. But, don't worry, the lipglass remains the same as it's always been.

  • Fan of MAC lipglass? Think it's too sticky? Write a review!

  • No. 17: Burt's Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Bath Pint, $15.99

  • Not only is the packaging Laura Ingalls cute, but this bath milk receives raves from users. One says, "this bath product is a great way to pamper yourself and it leaves your skin feeling soft."

  • Beat stress with these other top-rated bath products.

  • No. 16: Hard Candy Nail Polish, $5

  • Hard Candy creator, Dina Mohajer, is no dummy. She knew how enticing an adorable FREE-ring-with-nail-polish-purchase would be to us girly types. And, she was right! But, it's more than just the bonus bling that has won over legions of fans. One reviewer says, "[They] have very unique colors that you can't find anywhere, and they stay on for a long time."

  • No. 15: Lancome Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origin, $18

  • A perennial fave among the beauty set, this Lancome lip gloss received a makeover and now sports pink and gold flowers on its tube-y exterior. Readers love the new look almost as much as they adore the old gloss – why? As one puts it, " This is the best lip gloss ever -- great texture and flavor. But what I really love is that my hair doesn't get stuck in it!"

  • No. 13: Fresh Sugarbath Cubes, $34

  • "These crystallized cubes of bliss are packed with natural, good-for-you-stuff with bicarbonate soda and citric acid, so they slough off your dead skin cells," says a reviewer. The fact that they look like they've been sent down from beauty heaven doesn't hurt either.
