Alexis Bittar Liquid Gold Compact Mirror
Alexis Bittar Liquid Gold Compact Mirror ($42.00) is a medium-sized, heft 24 karat gold-plated compact mirror with Swarovski crystals. It has a very interesting, unique shape, and it is incredibly heavy, which makes it feel higher quality in the hand as it feels solid, but it’s not something I’d want to keep in a bag to use for touch-ups on-the-go. It might be a nice item to keep on a desk (or a vanity) for touch-ups at the office or the like, or if you normally carry a big purse, you might not mind the additional weight.
Given the metallic finish of it, fingerprints are easily seen, so ultimately, this is more like a paperweight or collector’s item. The quality of the mirrors seems exceptionally good; just really crisp and made me take mental note that it seemed like a higher quality compact overall. One mirror is normal, and the other side has a 2x magnification. It comes with a velvet, drawstring bag, so you can keep it in there for storage. The box itself is numbered, but the compact is not (wish it was engraved somewhere on it).
