This breathtaking collection from Chinese brand Taobao is inspired by the beauty and symbolism of the solar system, luna phases and astronomy. The dazzling decoration evokes a bewitching effect that is further embodied by the shimmering and glittery formulas used within the range.
The real show-piece of the collection is the ’12 Color Starry Eyeshadow Palette’ a large custom palette that displays 12 beautiful pearlescent and glittering eyeshadows, placed in a radial formation. This eyeshadow palette concept is inspired by ancient use of the sun, moon and stars to measure time.
The two-piece round cover has been metallised in the collection’s signature shiny gold whilst the clear top-plate creates a mesmerising window; revealing both the product within and a scattering of holographic stars across the insert. The cover is completed with a detailed graphic depicting the signs of the Zodiac, perfectly aligned with each eyeshadow; an excellent showcase of HCP’s capabilities to foil highly ornate and precise designs.
The ‘Time Series Lipstick’ is a luxurious custom lipstick that is weighted for a premium feel. The design combines an intensely sparkly deep blue glitter decoration, applied as a gradient, with an anodised gold A-shell and ring to provide a stunning contrast.
Intricate artwork of stars and constellations in gold and silver holographic foils are applied to the cap. This desirable packaging design is finished with a stunning highly detailed Zamac and enamel clock motif.
The HCP stock Radii Round Blusher (23L) and Pressed Powder (23J) compacts have been given a mystical make-over that is out of this world in the StarrySky Highlighter & Star Blush Compacts.
The clear faceted ‘diamond’ top-plate displays elaborate astronomy-themed graphics in shiny gold foil, lifted to a new level of reflectivity with the addition of silver holographic stars. The design is finessed with a deep blue holographic glitter spray to beautifully contrast with the gold metallised cover, base and insert.
