Not only is the compact sleek and beautiful, the product inside is just as artfully designed.
SH Cosmetics Maple Leaf Bronzer: $36
Estee Lauder has brought back its classic textured compact. Oh, and the makeup's nice too.
Estee Lauder Golden Alligator C
The inspiration for this luminous compact was "moonlight."
ClÃ© de Peau BeautÃ© Cream Eye Color: $4
With flower on the outside and a flower on the inside your face will feel as fresh as a daisy.
Guerlain Meteorite Compact Powder: $56
Guerlain also makes this little gem, a compact containing pearls that become face powder. Just don't confuse them for your vitamins.
The packaging just does what it promises: hello, rosy glow.
Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Co
Is that a lion on your face or are you just using absurdly cool makeup?
Chantecaille White Tiger Poudre Delicat: $85
This Dior eye makeup palette comes wrapped in tweed with a little bow. Because it's a gift, of course.
Inspired by Italian lace, this powder is so pretty you might not even want to use it.
Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Lace Powder
This bronzer will give you a healthy glow, and the packaging will make it all feel blessedly natural.
Sometimes makeup has such gorgeous packaging that you can't help but be underwhelmed by the product within. Luckily, these ten cases for blush, bronzer, eye shadow, and powder are just like you: pretty inside and out. The only problem? The products are so nice you might not even want to use them.
