Pretty Things...

To quote the fabulous Miss Kristopher Dukes...Ooh la love.

This collector's edition Opium compact from Yves Saint Laurent is just lovely and would make a perfect holiday gift.

Outside, smooth black lacquer with a flower design that makes this compact look like a beautiful Chinese jewelry box. Inside, a mirror and four shades of finely milled pressed powder in a matching flower pattern. Swirl them together for allover highlight or tap into each section. The little swatch of burgundy in there would make a lovely eyeliner when applied wet.

Although...if you had this, would you even want to use it? It's so perfect as it is. Sigh.

$55, available at Nordstrom.
