The What’s On Your Vanity Series showcases a single beauty item a blogger loves because it’s effective, but also she feels she must keep out on top of her vanity because the gorgeous packaging must be displayed.
Lianne Farbes, hilarious writer of The Makeup Girl, is one of my best blogging pals. She always knows the right response to an asinine request (Aww hell naw!) and boasts extensive beauty knowledge. She shares what’s on HER vanity, in her words, below.
My favorite item(s) on my vanity HAVE to be my fragrance collection. Fragrance is effective well, because it evokes emotion. From you and whomever is smelling you. I covet the intricate crystal bottles and keep them on a mirrored stand (I get that from my mom as she ALWAYS had the perfume on a mirrored vanity tray) I think the thing I love the most is the packaging–fragrance always comes in a box with satin, velvet or bows like it’s a priceless antique or jewel. My faves at the moment are Hermes 24 Fouberg, Chanel Beige, Dior Imperiale, Gucci and Bond No 9 Fire Island. I look at these bottles at least 5-6 times a day.
