Obsession: A Lipstick Case Keychain
An obsession is a funny thing.
A lot like love, you just can't control it. You want what you want. My friend is currently lusting after an Yves Saint Laurent postcard wallet. My holy grail: a lipstick case keychain. Yup, totally weird.
Now, I've had hundreds of these cases over the years and usually ended up giving them away. Why do I need a special case for my lipstick? I always thought. Then, I spotted this See by Chloe version with an attached keychain. Because I have not (yet) completely lost my mind, I did not buy the $56 keychain, which proceeded to sell out.
Yet, something about the idea of the two linked together fundamentally changed my opinion of the lipstick case. Of course, now I can't find even one around the house that I could trick out with a keychain. And truth be told, I probably wouldn't even attempt it. How could it look as good?
So the hunt begins.
I squandered a fair amount of time trying to come up with a cheaper substitute. I found stuff like this one. Yeah, it's what you think. Yeah, it's pretty strange.
