Stila wins for solar powered powder compact

Seems like I’m having a “pretty packaging” kind of week at the moment. From YSL’s new Collector Edition Touche Eclat to Stila’s win at the International Package Design Awards (IPDA). Stila recently won in the Innovations In Sustainable Packaging category for it solar Illuminated Refillable Compact and Powder Duo for E! Live from the Red Carpet.

The compact uses a solar power panel in the top of the compact to convert solar energy into light to help you apply your powder (or check your lipstick) at night. It’s fully charged after nine hours of sunlight and, according to Cosmetics Business, “there’s also a tiny, green star on the cover that indicates the built-in lithium battery is recharging”.

Sadly though, it’s not available in SA.
