Shiseido’s Sun Protection Compact Foundation is the stuff of legend—especially where our intrepid market director, Marina Larroudé, is concerned. No stranger to the blistering rays of the southern hemisphere, the native Brazilian has been a longtime fan of the titanium-dioxide- and antioxidant-amino-acid-enriched powder, as much for its UV protection as its unbelievable coverage. “It’s all I wear,” she has said of the easy-to-apply skin perfector, which comes in an adorable azure-blue bubble compact. While the formula needs little improving upon, the packaging is about to get a major makeover. Just in time for summer, the Japanese brand has released the multifunctional complexion enhancer in limited-edition throwback palettes. Inspired by original Shiseido sun-care products, like its 1965 sun oil and 1969 Beauty Cake, the cases come in three bright yellow designs and pack tons of retro sun-worshipping appeal. Each one is available in seven different tone-enriching shades.
