The item at 0:35 is a bottle of Salvador Dalì perfume (I have one in my collection), long discontinued along with all the makeup items, though you can still buy the eau de parfum — same bottle but instead of black it’s clear and frosted glass. The nose-and-lips bottle is based on a painting of his, Apparition of the Aphrodite of Cnidus in a Landscape. There are seventy-some fragrances in under the Dalì umbrella, and all the bottles are based on his art in some way.

Cool.

It should go without saying that I hope she didnt/doesn’t let any of that ancient makeup actually touch her skin.
