Gift Guide: Shiseido Camellia Compact

A few weeks ago, Shiseido sent over a package containing the most coveted item from their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection - the Limited Edition Camellia Compact. Instead of just reviewing it, I decided to include it as one of the items on Gift Guide because this compact is perfect for women with exquisite taste in makeup.

Shiseido Camellia Compact 6.5 g (0.22 OZ.) PhP 1998

I know many women will love it as much as I do because the powder has a smooth, high quality texture, and its ingredients give it a velvety, dewy feeling during application.

 Camellia Compact's distinctive design

The year 2012 marks Shiseido's 140th anniversary. The camellia has stood as Shiseido's signature symbol of beauty for almost a century. It became Shiseido's trademark - the bloom pointing upward represents aspiration, while the camellia that points down represents modesty. The idea is that by balancing these virtues on the inside, a person can achieve true beauty.

Camellia Compact's exquisite powder

 Camellia Compact comes in 3 sumptuous shades:

  • Dramatic, vividly Rich Rose
  • Pretty, pure, Spring-Petal Pink
  • Sultry, Icy-Cool Platinum

Camellia Compact swatches (l-r): Rich Rose, Spring-Petal Pink, Icy-Cool Platinum 

What I like about the product:

  • Very pigmented
  • Unscented
  • Dematologist-tested
  • Non-comedogenic

On days when I don't feel like putting any face powder on, I just apply Camellia Compact's Rich Rose on my cheeks for that natural flush look. 

 How to wear it:

  • Apply a mix of three hues in the compact to your cheekbones, forehead, nose and jawline
  • Apply Rich Rose mainly to the high points of your cheekbones, with Petal Rose blended softly around the circumference of the Rich Rose gradiation
  • Apply Petal Pink to  the high points of your cheekbones
