Limited edition gets the royal treatment with Sulwhasoo’s ShineClassic Christmas collection

If you feel like a queen whenever you're putting on your face, you're going to love this royal upgrade for your vanity. Designed to commemorate the 15th anniversary of its ShineClassic makeup, Sulwhasoo has launched two stunningly intricate iterations of their premium compacts that pay homage to the traditional Korean craft of jinjunang. Originally carried by past queens and princesses during court ceremonies, jinjunangs were silk pouches embellished with swirling embroidery and beaded with lustrous pearls. This piece of royally appointed accessory now graces the ShineClassic Powder and the ShineClassic Multi Powder compacts as part of the brand's festive offerings, depicted in a golden floral motif and decorated with pearl detailing.

Curated into two limited edition kits that come with a travel brush and a protective sleeve, these powders are not just ridiculously gorgeous to have and to hold, the finely milled formulas also ensure a smooth application for a flawless finish. Whether you're looking to choose according to your needs or you're just going to scoop both up (because come on, how can you not?), check out these Sulwhasoo beauties below: 

A blush and highlight duo packaged in a fittingly glamourous red case, the inside is as beautiful as the outside, made up of various pink tones and one shimmering, pearl shade to add dimension to your cheeks. The colours are derived from natural pigments, so you can build up a radiant flush and glow effortlessly.


Dressed in soft blues inspired by a jinjunang's navy-coloured tassel, this is possibly the most lavish face powder you'll ever own. Popping open the lid reveals an embossed surface so pretty you don't want to ruin it, but the Fine Grinding Technology that goes into its making delivers a finish so translucent and soft, you can totally own that baby skin look. Plus anyone will tell you a good setting powder makes all the difference.
