Text by Sadaf Shaikh

With equal emphasis on quality and design, you will have a hard time disposing of these creatively packaged products once you’re done using them….

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer in 23.75 Karat Gold

As if Dyson’s products were already not desirable enough, their hair dryer is hand gilded in 23.75 karat gold. Sourced from Florence, the gold leaf has been chosen for its colour and lustre. At approximately 333 atoms thick (yes, they’ve actually counted them), each leaf is incredibly thin and applied by hand. Five leaves are used on each product and are then brushed together to form a smooth, even finish. The bright blue body is a is a nice finishing touch in addition to the red case that the dryer comes in. Lovers of extravagance, this one’s for you.

Benefit’s GALifornia Golden Pink Blush

Benefit has always been one of those brands that likes to experiment with both designs and names — remember their iconic Sexy Motherpucker glosses? — and this time it’s a cheerful mixture of both. The new GALifornia Golden Pink Blush blends bright pink with shimmering gold for a sun-kissed glow that complements all skin tones. The soft, blend-able formula captures the warmth of California sunshine, while the signature scent features notes of pink grapefruit & vanilla. The clincher? The golden part of the blush is shaped to look like the sun and the chic box comes with its own rounded blush brush and mirror.

Aura Mugler by Mugler

Taking off from the TVC for the perfume which features a lithe, nude woman following a strange throbbing green light — (think the bioluminescence from Avatar’s Pandora forest in green instead of blue), Mugler’s newest fragrance is a treat for those who love vanilla. The sweet candy aroma soon gives way to fresh floral notes that dominate the scent. The fragrance that comes in a bright, heart-shaped emerald bottle which celebrates the intuitive instinct that Mugler describes as innately feminine in nature.
