If you’re looking for a serious make-up splurge this festive season, look no further than the latest collaboration between Shiseido and Sirivannavari — the fashion house founded by HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. Titled “SHISEIDO X SIRIVANNAVARI Princess Hanayaka Collection,” it conveys the image of a woman who is vivacious and as ravishingly beautiful as a princess.
Reflecting on the inspirations and philosophy behind the collaboration, HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana said the Sirivannavari brand and Shiseido shared a mutual intention to create “what will enable the beauty of women in Asia to glow from inside and out naturally.”
“For this collection, my intention is to create the beauty products that are compact, easy and convenient to apply. The colours in the palette must be beautiful and highly flexible for various combinations of mix and match for different occasions, from daytime natural look to nighttime glamour. One palette can be applied for eyes, cheeks, and lips makeup while the texture of the cosmetics must make it easy for different colour combinations. I chose all the colour schemes and different shades for this collection myself based on what colour combinations I think will best bring out women’s beauty. I then used those colours to work with the graphics and drawings inspired by previous Sirivannavari collections to design the packaging. The drawings of rice ears, bees, and lovebirds are used as the main designs. When combined with a Japanese touch, the lines and feels become perfect for the packaging designs of this collection,” the princess explained during the launch of Shiseido X Sirivannavari Princess Hanayaka Collection last week.
Comprising of 4 beauty products: Eye Colour Palette in 8 shades, 2 Face Illuminator & Blush Palettes and a Lip Collection, the collection is a result of hard work and determination of Thailand’s beloved princess. The Princess has dedicated more than two years of her precious time to design it, being in charge in every design step, from choosing the texture of the beauty products to matching the colours of eye colours, face colours, and lip colours. All of them are the Princess’ favorite colours which are not only beautiful but easy to apply, perfect for makeup creativity to design new looks.
Eye Colour Palette
The Eye Colour Palette has 8 exquisite colours in an exclusively designed case depicting rice ears in pearly golden brown against the backdrop of dark night sky full of glittering stars in the zodiac constellations, unique of Sirivannavari. The designs in gold are painted on each colour which fit every skin tone of women in Asia. The colours are divided into 2 groups, golden brown of rice ears for daytime and silver midnight blue with glittering stars for glam look. All colours come with glitter which, upon application, reflects a bold, metallic effect. The formula is highly pigmented, and yet feels light and very easy to blend.
Face Illuminator & Blush Palette (Natural) and Face Illuminator & Blush Palette (Glam)
The elegant design on the case is inspired by beautiful flowers, bees, rice, and lovebirds to convey beautiful nature full of life and freshness represented by two palettes in the collection. The Face Illuminator and Blush Palette (Natural) consists of grapefruit-colour blush matching with highlighter in light-coloured Wild Lily. The Face Illuminator & Blush Palette (Glam), meanwhile, comes with coral-tone blush matching with gold highlighter to brighten up the cheeks. The matte texture of the blush makes both colours look natural on the skin, yet their buildable textures can give a dramatic effect when applied in layers.
Two lipsticks, one in crimson red and the other in nude brown colour offer semi-matte texture with soft satin touch. The popular colours come with a Shiseido lipstick brush. The case features the main designs of this collection — flowers, bees, and lovebirds — specially created by Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. Both lipsticks give light, almost barely there feel and yet, the highly pigmented formula has good staying power.
