Sometimes, you just need a simple compact mirror instead of toting around your makeup compact with built-in mirror around. At least with a simple mirror, you don’t risk pressed powder breaking in your purse and (heavens forbid) creating a huge mess. The vibrant compacts by Jay Strongwater caught my attention today. These are nothing more than a kiss locked mirrored compact, dazzled with hand enameled floral and critter detailing. Rich paints create colorful swirls that compliment the feminine theme, nicely. Of course, those crystallized details are in fact Swarovski, the perfect finishing touch to this eye catching piece. The various versions of Strongwater’s compacts would make perfect gifts for a girlfriend, mom, or grandma; as they appeal to women of all ages. Most pretty things arrive with pretty steep price tags and this compact is no exception, as a whooping $195 will score you this jeweled piece.
