When we think of beauty, the products, treatments, tools, and cosmetics that help us look our best first come to mind, but what about beautiful beauty products whose design rivals their actual purpose?
As we tackle an ongoing pandemic and life’s daily stressors, we are committed to finding joy in beauty. And sometimes, what brings a smile to our faces are beauty products that not only work well but are gratifying to look at. Some things we buy should be coveted simply because of how exquisite they are, right?
And so, we’ve curated Vogue’s edit of the most alluring beauty products that deserve a spot on your vanity, and might just be too pristine to use.
This stunning oyster-designed compact by Byredo houses five rich, blendable eyeshadows with finishes from matte to metallic—though this distinctive case makes it worth a treasured spot on your makeup display.
