When it comes to makeup, packaging has kind of lost its mojo. Instead of containers we'd like to display on our dressers and vanities, we have compacts that are more utility-driven than anything. But Japonesque has changed all that with its Color Eye Shadow Palette ($34). Cases emblazoned with pretty painterly designs hold a quad of shadows that are somewhere between cream and powder. The four iridescent colors glide on with a glaze-like texture, making for an easy, buildable shadow look. They also blend together seamlessly, allowing for a wide range of use. If you're looking for one shadow palette to get you through the holidays, you just found it.
