When you're a creative makeup lover, you see the beauty in everything . . . literally. And this is a good thing! Without cosmetics addicts, the world wouldn't have pizza highlighter, which glimmers like the grease on a freshly baked pie, or snow globe nails, which allow you to celebrate your love of the holidays all year round. This week, that kind of innovative perspective on everyday items has caused buzz in an unexpected location: the comment section of the official Olympic Games Instagram account.

This week, the people behind the feed posted a shot of the 2016 Summer Olympics bronze medal. Instead of hanging from a ribbon or sash, it's housed in a unique wooden package that slides open to reveal the beautiful glimmering disk. A beauty addict barely has to use her imagination to see that it looks just like a fancy highlighter compact.

This fact didn't go unnoticed by Instagram users. "That's some bombass highlighter," declared @frnkierosdick. "I thought this was highlighter with some super dope packaging," commented @rebekah.ling.
