Acrylic Mini Candy Dome For Beauty Accessories

August 16, 2010
By

I couldn’t resist this cute little container when I saw it recently. It’s meant for candy but I had other plans for it! Measuring around 31.5 cm in diameter, this clear sphere is available at under S$8 at the household section of most major departmental stores. It also comes in a bigger size and in different colours.

Surprisingly well-made for its price, the semi-spherical cover moves smoothly on its hinges and closes cleanly on the edge of the bottom half. There is no clasp though, so it will flip open easily…great for quick access to the items inside.

It’s a little Pac-Manesque, no? I like that it’s cute yet stylishly simple at the same time.

I intended to put sample sachets in the case but it was too small to contain them all.

In the end, I found that it’s the right size for my sponges. It comfortably fits six, including my Beautyblender sponges, Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge and a few generic wedges. I am so tempted to purchase the bigger dome but I simply don’t have the space for it!

    I saw some really cute ones with prints in HKG at the shop famous for quirky kitchen accessories around Causeway Bay. If not for the fact that I was shopped out(nars & jill stuart major culprits & MBD too), I would have gotten it.

      Hi Farah,

      I would’ve succumbed to Jill Stuart and NARS too!!! Quirky kitchen accessories sound fun though…:D

    They were quite exp at the kitchen acc shop about S$68 for one. Also not vey small so quite bulky to carry back. As it is, I was already close to 30kg in excess luggage. :/

      Wow, that is quite pricey. LOL, Farah, I love that you had excess luggage (can’t all be Jill Stuart and NARS, right?!)!

    It was mostly MBD masks, I lug soooo much back. Nars & JS only weigh down the CC bills LOL. Was 8 JS blush & maybe 7 Nars blush?

      The masks are great, so it’s worth the hassle. Weighing down the bills…HAHA! That’s a brilliant way to put it, Farah. :D I’m SO envious of your haul! Have you posted about it? Give me the link!

    Indeed most of the kitchen accessories like cute ice cream scoops(has animals on it) & very sturdy too are pricey.

      Aiiieee, they sound so cute, Farah! Do they have a website?

  7. August 19, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    Yes the masks are worth the madness. It was a pain to pack in!!!

    http://chocfull.onsugar.com/Pictures-Galore—Jill-Stuart-Nars-9990084 – here’s part of the haul. :)

    No they don’t hv a site. I cannot even rber the name of the shop. I just know it is at Causeway Bay near Excelsior Hotel facing the sea. Next trip I make, I shall walk in & get their card for you.

      Hi Dhini,
