Makeup next to candy and cookies: a new trend?
The above pics have absolutely nothing to do with this blog post; I just thought I'd share a recent trend that I've spotted over the past few weeks and get your opinion on it. The pic on the left was taken by me at Target last week--I saw a display of CG and Maybelline mascara two-packs in the cookie/cake aisle. Literally right around the corner from the Milanos (dangerous!). And the pic on the right is of the new CG foundation display, which was located in the candy aisle (right next to a monster display of KitKats) at CVS.
I think this is some brilliant positioning, if you ask me. Candy and makeup often elicit the same response from me (so fun to look at, and I never need it--I just want it). Is this a trend you've noticed in your area as well? What do you think? Is this evil product placement...or convenience at its finest?
