I’m a collector. It’s a horrible vice. But fortunately I have pretty specific items I collect – Deco Era bar ware, elephants, antique lace, different jewelry, tabletop books, and black amethyst glass. And that list doesn’t include my antique furniture and art collection. However, since I’m this die hard beauty junkie, I have also been collecting antique and unusual makeup compacts, lipstick cases and perfume bottles for years.
That brought me to today’s subject, makeup compacts, cases and perfume bottles that I think will have collectible value in the future. I don’t define my collections by someone else’s definition of what’s collectible. I collect what catches my eye, things that I am attracted to. So check out a few items I have scoped out that would be perfect for collecting and giving.
I love little baubles that double as makeup or fragrance containers. These are the best of the season!
I also love gorgeous packaging. Even though I buy budget makeup for everyday use, I am a sucker for a beautiful compact that has that perfect click when you close it.
And I’m a sucker for a beautiful bottle.
And the entire MAC Baroque Boudoir collection is collectible based on the packaging alone as is the Shu Uemura Tsumori Chisato Collection.
