Reyna, AKA queenbouj on TikTok, is a bit of a luxury fanatic. Whether she’s showing off her designer sneakers or perfume collection, Reyna is all about luxe shopping. But that doesn’t mean she’s always paying high-end prices. The Los Angeles-based fashionista has got a few tricks up her sleeve and one went viral in August.
Reyna showed how you can get a Dior cardholder for only $65 with this clever hack. Instead of heading to the handbag section at Nordstrom, Reyna bought a 2018 Dior “Daring” lip palette. The makeup comes in a leather carrying case with the Dior logo on the snap closure.
In the clip, Reyna took the palette, removed the makeup pan and put her money and cards inside. It’s really that easy. The lip kit is still available at some stores for $65. Compare that to a real Dior cardholder which can cost $550.
The hot tip racked up over 130,000 views on TikTok. The commentariat loved this unconventional idea.
“Are you kidding? This is it! I’m on way to Nordstorm now,” one person wrote.
“Yes, so much you can do with Dior products along with YSL and Gucci once the product is done,” another said.
“Just bought one! Wow, this is so amazing, thank you!” someone commented.
But this isn’t the first time Reyna has converted a Dior makeup palette. She did the same trick with the $152 Dior Addict “Can’t Get Enough Shine” lipstick set. This time around she converted the hot pink carrying case into a much larger handbag.
Well, that just goes to show, you can always get your hands on designer labels if you’re a bit resourceful.
