Vintage Compact Collection Status Update

Remember I told you last summer about how I bought two vintage compacts and a ’50s British Vogue at an antique sale? Well, I’ve acquired a few more delightful items to add to my collection. Check it (right to left):

  • A small circular compact purchased for me by the fabulous Keri Blair, Senior Makeup Artist for MAC Cosmetics
  • A vintage bottle of Estee Lauder Youth Dew purchased on eBay
  • A vintage 1950s Max Factor Lipstick case, containing one very ancient lipstick in red purchased on eBay
  • A FABULOUS Richard Hudnut gold compact with a lipstick included in the hinge emblazoned with a royal CROWN. This one was a birthday gift from the very generous Sarah
  • Another gift from Keri, a small pot of rouge called “Cheek Lure” from the brand Irresistible 

I keep them all on my very gay-man shelf in my bookcase.

Do you collect anything? SHARE, dolls.

    This may age me, but I actually remember that bottle of Youth Dew! My Great Aunt had a bottle, and I’d always sneak whiffs of it when I went over to her house!

    Beautiful collection!
