I've said it before, but I'll say it again. I get all Hoarders-like when beauty products are super-cute. Instead of actually, you know, using them, I just collect them like some kind of weirdo. It's my grown-up version of playing Barbies.
So it's a huge testament to Anna Sui's beauty line that I have so much of her stuff preserved for the ages in my "archives." (I know that sounds weird, Anna Sui, but the fact that I don't really use your products is a compliment. Trust me.)
Then, this showed up last week and I got really happy—because unlike makeup, it's something that won't get ruined by my grubby little fingers, and I can put it on top of my dresser to stare at every single day:
See? Total adorableness. And it's not just any old box, it's a beauty box. Automatically 300 percent better.
I am pretty sure this first came out with a 2010 makeup collection, but I guess when you come up with something this cute, you make more of it. The box is made of a durable plastic and has little legs on the bottom (how sweet?), plus a heart-shaped knob on the lid. That gorgeous graphic print is embossed on the white, as is the Anna Sui logo on the black.
Here are a few pics of mine:
You could use it to store pretty much anything (except for nail polish or nail polish remover, as they say that'll damage it). There's enough room for a big supply of my favourite Shiseido Facial Cotton:
Or it's a great place to stash all your lip gloss (it's the perfect height):
For $25.00, it's quite reasonable—and way better than pulling stuff out of a makeup bag or a Caboodle or whatever. (Do they still make Caboodles?) Plus, I know it's only October, but it would make a great Christmas gift as well.
Are you an Anna Sui beauty fan?
