The favorite flower of Shiseido’s first president, Shinzo Fukuhara, the brand’s trademark camellia first appeared in 1915. Based on Shinzo’s own prototype, the camellia has stood as Shiseido’s signature symbol of beauty for almost a century. The bloom pointing upward represents aspiration, and the bloom pointing down represents modesty – the balance of true beauty.
Created by Artistic Director Dick Page and in celebration of Shiseido’s 140th anniversary, the Limited Edition Camellia Compact features the cherished camellia flower in three places – the outer packaging, the compact and the surface of the powder inside.
The face powder features three vivid colors, all with a subtle gleam. The smooth texture melts into skin, delivering a velvety, dewy finish.
The three shades in the Camellia Compact can be used individually as a blush or highlighter. Applied to cheekbones, forehead, nose, and jawline, the three hues can also be blended together for various effects. The shades include:
- Dramatic, vividly-rich rose
- Pure, spring-petal pink
- Sultry, ice-cool platinum
