Department Store vs. Drugstore

This is a picture of a Marcelle compact which was a limited edition that came out for Christmas. Unfortunately, Marcelle’s website doesn’t have a picture of it so this is one I’ve taken myself. I bought this compact as a gift for one of my cousins in India – the colours of the eyeshadow are […]
