"The museum wanted one to feel as though the Queen had just stepped out for a moment and you looking into a day in her life."Well, Paris Atelier also posted this photo and I couldn't help notice this small compact. If you want your own like this, then you are in luck that I am such a fan of pretty make up. Mac has offered a holiday series and the 2007 series, Royal Assets, features a compact oh so like this one!
Unfortunately Royal Assets was a limited edition, and now can only be found on ebay for a steep rate. Worth it? The case comes in antiqued silver or gold with the special mac crown enblem. The palettes come with 2 shades of color, and 1 shade of gloss (I mean a shade of lipglass) - which smells like chocolate. Color names include Courting Rose, Reigning Pink, Lady Ship, Pure Pomp, Sceptre, Privee, Cardinal and Media. So if you have to have it, you can get it!
Still want the sweet 3 lip compact? Mac is selling sets from their 2008 line, Viva Glam on their website. The case is not as 18th century as the Royal Assets case but it is just as pretty with a large gem in the center, mirror, application brush and yes, the lip gloss smells of chocolate!
