Yes, we are sometimes label whores. We've been playing this game in our office: What item could Chanel stamp its name on that wouldn't make it chic and universally coveted? Toilet paper? Cool! Paper clips? Say no more! Tupperware? We're DYING! Christmas sweater? Hellooo, Mark Darcy! Looking back, we've written blogs dripping with excitement about such quotidian things as the Chanel USB flash drive
and the Chanel pocketbag hook
. Today, it's the Chanel eyelash curler, a very hot item in that it's one of only two that Chanel's Creative Director Peter Phillips created and graciously sent to us.
Now, we mean no disrespect to Peter; indeed, this curler is a top-of-the-line beauty tool. But if those letters spelling C-H-A-N-E-L weren't gracing its clamp, it likely would've been put in our beauty closet's eyelash curler bin, along with the others. But no. We're fighting over it here. And I don't even use a lash curler.
