7 Cosmetic Packaging for 2017 Chinese New Year
Out of all the animals in the world, we would have never guessed a rooster could inspire the world of beauty. But just in time for the Chinese New Year, brands such as M.A.C. and Estée Lauder have launched new collections of red and gold goodies inspired by the farm animal—more specifically, its appearance in Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Rooster will officially begin on Saturday, January 28.
To celebrate, we rounded up 7 cosmetic packaging designs to bring you all the good luck, fortune, and happiness this Chinese New Year.
Shiseido Eudermine Revitalizing Essence
Give your vanity a dose of good luck with a softening lotion that looks like it belongs in a museum. According to Chinese tradition, the color red symbolizes good fortune and happiness—and your skin will feel those vibes, too. The Shiseido Eudermine Revitalizing Essence will give your skin just the hydration it needs to say goodbye to all your winter woes.
Giorgio Armani Beauty Chinese New Year Palette
Giorgio Armani Beauty’s rooster-adorned pressed powder may look too light for darker skin tones, but it actually helps illuminate the skin no matter the complexion. Use it to set your makeup for an all-day, all-over radiance.
YSL Beauty 2017 Chinese New Year Palette
Amp up the apples of your cheeks with the two shades of peach in YSL Beauty’s latest special-edition palette. You can also use the little square in the center as a highlighter atop your cheekbones. Be sure to take a second to appreciate the gorgeous packaging—the red tassels pay homage to the Chinese art of knotting.
Oribe The Lacquer High Shine Nail Polish in The Red
True to its name, this candy apple hue will give your nails a high-shine finish that will last you through any way you choose to celebrate—no chips here.
Estée Lauder Year Of The Rooster Powder Compact
This little refillable compact designed by Monica Rich Kosann is the perfect size for your purse. Inside you’ll find Estée Lauder’s Perfecting Pressed Powder, which will keep your skin at bay throughout the day.
Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder – Chinese New Year Edition
Givenchy’s popular quartet of color-correcting powders gets a festive new topper in honor of the Year of the Rooster. The best part? You can use it on other Prisme Libre powders when you run out of the loose setting powder.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Put your best face forward in the new year with Estée Lauder’s best-selling anti-aging serum. Rub a couple drops from this limited-edition metallic red bottle all over your face before bed to help fight fine lines and wrinkles and add some moisture.
