If you guy's recall a couple of weeks back Sephora sent me a $25 holiday gift card for being a #VIB #ROUGE member. They do this every year. After some thought I decided to purchase the Alexis Bittar Liquid Gold Compact Mirror. I figured it was a nice an investment, a piece of pure art and at almost half off a fabulous deal. The images on Sephora's site never does a product justice --because upon seeing this in person it's truly drool worthy! And I didn't even know it was plated in genuine gold.
Perfect blend of form & function. Alexis Bittar custom-designed 24K gold-plated dual compact mirror. Introducing Alexis Bittar for Sephora Collection: a limited-edition collaboration that fuses the jewelry designer’s luxurious, sculptural aesthetic with our coveted beauty essentials. Exclusively at Sephora. For more than 20 years, jewelry designer Alexis Bittar has revolutionized fashion with his striking designs and signature techniques. Renowned for his avant-garde craftsmanship, the award-winning artisan now brings his expertise to beauty. Sephora Collection and Alexis Bittar are proud to present world’s most luxurious compact mirror. This dual mirror features a 1x and 2x magnification, but it’s true value is its elegant and beautiful design. Crafted with Swarovski crystals, plated with 24 karat gold, and featuring a silk tassel, this compact is sure to be the centerpiece of any vanity.
Construction: The mirror is HEAVY! I mean like really really heavy --yet it's still easy to hold in the hand-- and it's about the size of one's entire palm --about four inches in length. The artsy avocado shaped gold compact is really shiny and reflective with a fabulous long black tassel attached to it. The entire overall design is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. There are symbolic etchings alongside the compact's edge and a rather large Swarvovski crystal --the jumbo crystal and the 24K gold plating alone is worth the compact's price-- I've seen small Swarvovski crystal pendants that cost more. It opens up to reveal two different mirrors --one is normal and the other side features double magnification. The quality of both are crystal clear and easy to look at. The final touches are a velvety carrying pouch --to keep your mirror safe while traveling-- and included is a free $25 off gift card to use at any Alexis Bittar store or the website. While I was lucky to purchase this at a discount it's absolutely worth it at full price! A little delectable piece of decadent luxury a girl can actually afford. It's sitting pretty on my vanity table as we speak. Here's hoping you all buy one for yourself or give as a gift to a loved one. Sparkle on little aliens, sparkle on... Stay Beautiful! XOXO
