Helter Skelter (2012)

Ririko (Erika Sawajiri) is almost hitting rock bottom of her stellar career. The multiple cosmetic surgeries she’s had have disfigured her and there’s nothing she can do to turn back time. Her make-up artist is able to cover the bruises and spots on her skin but it’s a temporary solution.

Among the many beauty products on her dressing table, there’s the beautiful opaline pump bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Paris body lotion.

When the camera moves, a Chanel compact is visible, too.

Carne trémula (1997)

Clara (Angela Molina) is finally leaving her abusive husband Sancho, so she’s quickly packing some toiletries. In her bathroom there are many beauty products.

There’s also a black box with gold band I haven’t been able to identify. It may be related to No. 5, but I have no idea what it can be.
