I'm more than a little bit enamoured with Gucci's latest beauty creation - a classic powder compact.
It's a new matte pressed powder from Gucci Beauty, a brand that you should immediately follow on Instagram, if you're not already. But this isn't just any pressed powder, this is a Gucci pressed powder. As such, it's not just a beauty product. It's an experience.
The powder formula is heavenly but it's more than the actual powder that will put this product at the top of your beauty wishlist. The case is a collectable. It's the kind of beauty compact from an era long gone. A gold, handheld design with old Hollywood flair. The type of gilded heavy case that makes a fabulous sound when you snap it shut. Exactly the type of piece my effortlessly glamorous Nonna would always have in her handbag.
I know many who will certainly be heading out to buy it as soon as it drops into the Australian stockist for Gucci Beauty, David Jones. It's certainly worth it.
Product details reveal the formula is lightweight and mattefying, with micro-reflecting lamellar powders and emollients so it blends smoothly into your skin. Perfect for a midday touch up. And it has a light floral fragrance, as any vintage compact should.
You won't have to throw away your beautiful and beloved compact once you've hit pan. The ornate case is designed to be refillable, so you can buy once and treasure forever. The powder formula is available in 12 shades from light to deep. We'll be seeing this in stores soon.
Gucci Beauty is a brand full of treasures. The designer launched lipsticks last year, and they're every bit as covetable as the coming-soon-compact. The vintage-style casing is an art in itself. You can see the full range of available Gucci Beauty products online at David Jones.
