Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Three things that are cute but unnecessary to have

I saw a quote earlier today that went something like, "Creativity changes the way people behave". I believe this. Creativity has a role in functionality, but creativity for the sake of it is also powerful. A pretty picture, for example, has no practical use except for the emotions or ideas that it evokes in the observer. It can change how a person looks at the world and that's a damn amazing thing, if you ask me.

I think it's the same for beauty products that are nice to have but are not necessary to keep. Why make them if only a few people can truly appreciate them? I somewhat answered this in an old post. An object, however useless it may seem, can make a person feel cuter, refined, more put together. If something can do any of these things then I wouldn't call it useless!

I scoured through my photo archives and found three products that are nice but unnecesary to have. Of course, this list is subjective, so what might not be super useful to me might be useful for you. Have at it!

Etude House Sweet Pink Sweet Cake Fragrance. This looks like those big swirly candies that come in a stick. True to the name, it smells quite saccharine and girly - hard to dislike, really! It's a solid perfume that you rub onto your pulse pooints, and the cool thing is that you don't have to worry about it breaking into pieces should it fall.

Majolica Majorca Popping Shower Powder. This scented and glittery body powder looks amazing on the dresser. :P The metallic printed bottle plus frosty flip top cap is just too pretty! On the body, it does impart some glow and a subtle scent on skin. Great for parties, just not for normal days out.

VMV Hypoallergenics Lipstick Case. This looks so suave with its soft leather material and stitched details. It houses three lipsticks plus a mirror in case you want to retouch. I think OC girls will love this, or just about anyone who wants a more organized bag. Not sure if they sell it though!

And that's it! Do you have things that make you feel nice but aren't particularly useful beyond that? (Obvious answer: HIGH-HEELED SHOES!!!). It's so fun being a girl!

Yep, still the best: MAC Fluidline in Dipdown
