Jill Stuart Everlasting Silk Powder Foundation had a release early this week in Japan much to the excitement of packaging h0rs far and wide. If you’re familiar with the original Powder Foundation Compact X (which I can’t live without) you’ll likely be impressed with newer style packaging that Jill Stuart is embracing for the formula.
The brand has embraced round compacts for their powders for a while now so Everlasting Silk Powder Foundation takes a new and possibly exciting route as it comes in a new clutch style compact with a small chain giving it the appearance of a vintage purse.
Yeah, I know, if you’re anything like me you might be thinking, “Well, I don’t think I’m going to be carrying and swinging around my foundation palette anytime soon on an evening out!” But hey, stranger $h1t has happened in my makeup life so why not?
There are quite a few pretty little Japanese makeup and beauty bits and bobs launching in Japan this Spring that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
Here are some that are especially gorgeous, take a look!
I realize I’ve spent a good deal of my makeup life placing a ton of importance on packaging. It’s what makes beauty and makeup so very appealing to me. Don’t get me wrong you can slap a shimmer eyeshadow in a basic black pot and I’d be drawn to it like a magnet! But just the opposite holds true of say a boring matte! Place an uneventful muddy matte shade in gorgeous packaging and I instantly need to have it.
Perhaps I’m a bit of a magpie. Collecting useless makeup just because it has pretty packaging! Of course, that’s not always the case. Sometimes we really get lucky and not only get a lipstick with a gorgeous formula but also one that comes in stunning packaging.
As I grow older I find myself becoming more jaded and I’m not necessarily all “grabby hands” with makeup just because it has beautiful packaging. Let’s face it Milani Cosmetics has some of the worst packaging around but some of the very nicest makeup, hello have you tried their blush? Awful packaging, great formula!
Jill Stuart Ribbon Couture Eyes are a eyeshadow palette launching in Japan for Spring 2015 that’s a new take on the brand’s popular eyeshadow quads! This gorgeous selection of shadow palettes is packaged in a new mirrored compacting featuring ribbons which are toted as being one of a girl’s all time favorite accessories!
Take a look!
