I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before that I collect mirror compacts. I think its a bit of an odd thing to collect I suppose. I kind of feel like an evil queen – so vain and evil that I collect mirrors! I especially love the Sephora LE compacts but they often sell out almost instantly. I have been on the “email me when in stock” list for the Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Compact Mirror for weeks now. When I finally received an email, I immediately went online and ordered one (its already showing as “out of stock” again online).
I remember watching the Jem & the Holograms animated TV show in the 1980s when I was little so I was over the moon to get this awesome, gold record compact with the Jem logo and pink lightening bolt. I am so in love with this compact I might not actually be able to use it. I was bummed that the new Jem & the Holograms film flopped and never actually made it to my theatre, because I was totally going to go (Not sure how I was going to talk the fiance into taking me, although I did get him to go to Twilight. He claimed he literally turned into a 13 year old girl during the film). I will have to wait until its out on Netflix or DVD now I guess. Any other Jem fans out there?
Then, walking through Lawton’s Drugs, I saw a display of Revlon Love is On gift sets that include a red, heart-shaped mirror compact. I picked up the lipstick and compact set because I’m a huge fan of the Super Lustrous lipsticks (see my whole collection) but there are other sets available too that pair the mirror with nail polish or eyeshadows. I would definitely recommend hitting your local drugstore to see if they have any of the sets in stock. Just think about what great gifts they would make!
The lipstick that came with it was #740 Certainly Red, which is a shade from their permanent line. Its a cherry red, so not sure how well its going to work for me, but honestly, I was really all about the compact! I may give the lipstick to my Mom.
The Sephora Collection Jem and the Holograms compact mirror is $23.00 CAD. The Revlon Love is On lipstick & compact set is only $9.99 CAD.
If anyone is interested in another post on my mirror compact collection, please leave me a comment below! Or let me know if you have anything that you like to collect. I’d love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading!
