Powder Play

The iconic golden alligator compact dates back to 1967,
with a comeback in the ‘80s. Here’s why this timeless staple
makes an excellent holiday gift today.

Analog is not anathema to us, especially when it comes to on-the-fly touch-ups. Trade the awkward mid-party glance in your phone’s camera for a retro-chic compact: the Golden Alligator Slim version is alluring, with a nonchalant “fairest of them all” sensibility.

The original Golden Alligator Compact launched in 1967 and was re-introduced in 1987. Fusing form and function, it houses Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder in a universal shade, yielding a soft-focus effect and a luminous finish. Elegantly alligator-textured, with a glamorous golden gleam, it’s also eco-consciously refillable, so you’ll never have to say “See you later." A wonderful gift for yourself or anyone on your list, it comes packaged in a velvety pouch to protect the compact.

Plus, no one will think you’re snapping a selfie when you’re checking your makeup.
