Rainbow makeup (whether for color correcting or othrwise) were a huge beauty trend in 2016. We’ve pretty much seen it all: throughout the year, we saw palettes, cushion compacts, crayons and liquids of this stuff launch. But the excitement isn’t over yet.

In honor of their 100th anniversary, Shiseido is relaunching their Rainbow Beauty Powders for a limited time only. These color correcting powders originally launched in 1917, but now, they’re an Instagram win. Each powder in the gorgeous set comes in small, handmade, satin boxes with beautiful gold detailing. And the floral scent—now that’s luxury.  

The loose powders come in seven different colors, which can be applied seamlessly with a brush. Each shade, like the rest of the color correctors, serves a different complexion purpose. Even better, the set decodes it for you so you know that the white is to “add translucency and brighten” all over while the peony hue “adds a soft flush.”

Not only will these powders up your makeup game but they’re also infused with micronized hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated and glowing, counteracting the powder’s dryness.

While the price is on the higher side, set at $200, the set is a treat worth giving. Even if it’s just to yourself.
