A Fabergé egg may be a little out of your league – unless you’ve descended from Russian royalty – but the Make Up Store Czarinna Egg ($70) needn't be. See, as well as being much more affordable, it's also practical.
It comes filled with a pale pink lip gloss that is picture-perfect on its own if you're after a subtle nude pout. If you're looking for something a little more glam, try applying it underneath a shimmery gloss.
Sure it's at the slightly pricey end of the lip gloss scale, but look at it this way: the ornate lacquer and guilt egg sits atop a crystal embellished stand that will add a priceless charm to any dressing table. If you say it enough times, you'll start to believe it. Promise.
