Compact Lens

Someone in the PR department over at Chantecaille Beaute (you know, with an "accent" on the "e"!) either has some great dirt on the magazine industry's major beauty editors, or at least a great way of paying them off. What else would explain the $420 makeup compact — or as seen in Harper's Bazaar, its "cheaper" sibling — that has appeared in no fewer than four women's magazines over the past two months? And yes, we know that sales of the compact "benefit" the preservation of coral reefs; and we don't much care. After the jump, a gallery of four of the major offenders. (Glamour magazine's version seen above).
