Cyrille Durand's cosmetics packaging design makes mascara and lipstick look more like James Bond gadgets. Consisting of clean-cut lines and angles, the Cos'Pure packaging prototype looks chic. While the slender streamlined shapes hint that these items are products for females, you'd really have to take a close look to figure out exactly what they are.

The designs are far from traditional make-up packaging. Each item is asymmetrically lopsided and unbalanced in proportion and colors, giving off an abstract feel. A lot of make-up exudes a girly aura, with curved lines and detailed embellishments. On the contrary, this line gives off a more aggressive feel with its sharp angles. This cosmetics set predicts what the future of make-up might look like.
