Interpreter of Maladies – “Sexy”

A saleswoman took one look at the paper and began to open drawers. She produced an oblong cake of soap in a black case, a hydrating mask, a vial of cell renewal drops, and two tubes of face cream. – Lahiri

The third book I am reading this summer is Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri. In the short story “Sexy”, Miranda enjoys walking through the cosmetic department, where she sees a man buying the above items for his wife. I also think there is something soothing and pleasing about browsing high-end cosmetics, but I’ve never bought any. I’ve done some browsing on etsy and this is perhaps what I would put on my list; what would be on yours?
