Two New Additions to my Mirror Compact Collection

Revlon Love is On Lipstick and Compact Set and Sephora Jem Truly Outrageous Compact
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?

My inner 9-year-old is totally freaking out right now!

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.

  1. Yes! Do a collection post. You’re the first person I have ever heard of that collects cool compact mirrors. Do you have the cinderella one from Sephora?

  3. I was so excited when they announced a Jem movie but then the trailer came out and… It looked horrible. They changed everything. No Misfits? No Synergy? And Rio looked like a douche. I’m glad it flopped.

  4. I was going to go see the Jem movie with my sister but the reviews were so horrible we decided against it! I totally watched the show as a kid and we even had a Jem doll – she was a giant compared to Barbie, and her earrings lit up!
    I wanted that mirror but it was sold out when I went to Sephora. Then when I saw it was available online, but I read tons of reviews about how crappy the mirror was so I opted not to get it. I’m glad you were happy with it though!
    I think collecting compact mirrors is totally a cool thing to do! 🙂

    • I had the Stormer doll, because she was the *nice* Misfit, plus, blue hair! lol. They were freakishly big though compared to Barbie. I love the compact. Its very heavy and substantial and the clasp is very secure. It is super nice for a $20 compact.
