Sulwhasoo ShineClassic Multi Powder Compact

Sulwhasoo ShineClassic Multi Powder Compact

I was recently on the hunt for some new skincare items and was browsing the Sulwhasoo website.  Sulwhasoo is a premium Korean brand, mostly known for its skincare.  I'm trying out a serum and a cleanser that I purchased, but today I'd like to show you this over the top beauty.

Sulwhasoo brings out limited edition powder compacts from time to time.  A few years back, I remember Bergdorf Goodman or Neiman Marcus had a bunch on its website at clearance prices.  Why buy things at reasonable markdown prices when you can fill yourself with regret and then hoard-buy years later at full price?  Why indeed?

This compact has a highlighter-blush and it is beautiful.  The case is inspired by a Korean traditional red silk pouch that royalty would have carried called jinjunang.  Jinju is pearl in Korean.   Even the faux suede fabric is thick and is adorned by a small faux pearl on a synthetic leather string.  Also part of the set is a synthetic bristle travel brush.

 Pearls every where!

Pearls every where!

It is weighty and exquisitely detailed on the outside.

It's a little heavy for carrying around day to day.  Also, I would worry about knocking loose one of those little faux pearls.

As delightfully ornate as it is on the outside, it is beautiful on the inside.  There's a bright hot pink blush shade, along with a warm rose.  Also are two highlighter shades in pale pink and ivory with shimmer.

This definitely scratches the makeup collector itch I have from time to time.  I must make myself use this once in a while so I don't feel regretful spending money on this thing.

Do you collect other beautiful makeup objects?  What are some of your most precious ones?
