I’m a bit of a sucker for limited editions, handcrafted items, vintage looking pieces and revisited past beauty elixirs. My love affair with talc, rice powder, vintage advertising, big brimmed hats, ’40-’50’s fashion is a long-lasting relationship I’ve recently come to extend to even motorbikes and watches. Yes, you know…
I literally go crazy for the smell of talc on my body, after a bath or a shower. Not to mention the feeling you’re purchasing a bite of history, when you’ve a Guerlain Meteorites metal case in your hands. Have you ever tasted one of the Marvis toothpaste for instance? Oh, they’re incredible in packaging, brand experience, flavors!
One of the beauty brands that best interprets the vintage looking make up is also Dior, with its timeless ladylike reds for both lips and nails. The one you see in the picture I posted belongs to my mom’s collection: she purchased it more than twenty years ago, but the polish is still liquid and usable! Incroyable!And she also kindly lent me her bottle of Givenchy III to shoot the photo. An other relic from the past, which looks so pretty! What’s inside is of course a bit ‘difficult’ to wear nowadays, but I find the bottle very very chic. Don’t you? I know it has been re-launched and re-designed since its first launch, but you know what? This version has a story and an inner poetry, that no actual version can mimic. I’m sorry. Mhm. Not that much, to be honest. 🙂
And you? Do you like/have any vintage or vintage-looking beauty products?
