The smallest and the most inconsequential things are capable of holding a treasure trove of emotions and memories. Especially if they are things we used during childhood like pencil boxes, a particular TV show, or even a liquid bindi box!
When a Twitter user shared a photo of a set of colourful liquid bindi bottles as the OG makeup must-have for Indian women, a lot of really old memories were unlocked.

They shared their personal stories associated with it during school events or just at home and also how they creatively made art on their faces using it. Take a look:
It’s shinning liquid makeup. It’s used to make different style/color bindis

I still use it sometimes whenever I wear traditional clothes. That smell is addictive<3

Oh my this brings back memories!
Wearing traditional clothes for Pujo or for any performance during school annual days and then joyfully picking 2 or 3 colour combinations of these paints to use as bindis which complemented my outfit! 🥺🥺

Me and my sis were crazy about them. We would put three of four colors together with them. And the smell was so good. But the cover, like the glass was so easy to break.

I would even mix it up and create colours to match bindi with my dress 😁
