Smilepact Shiny Face Powder comes with real Kosé makeup, Swarovski crystal

For years, Bandai has sold toy compacts, inspired by the ones that the shōjo heroines in Sailor Moon, Precure, and other anime use to transform into magical girls. This August, the Premum Bandai website will offer Smilepact Shiny Face Powder, a real Smile Precure cosmetic makeup compact for adults.

Like Bandai's toy version (pictured above left), the Smilepact for adults (pictured above right) is shaped like the compact seen in the anime. Unlike the toy version, the adult Smilepact has a lid with a pink metallic finish accented with a Swarovski crystal. Instead of plastic transformation Cure Decor items, the adult Smilepact contains real makeup powder from well-regarded cosmetic maker Kosé. It all comes in a box printed with a silhouette of the magical girl Cure Happy.

The adult Smilepact costs 3,990 yen (about US$51)— only 315 yen (US$4) more than the 3,675-yen (US$47) toy version. Premium Bandai will begin taking orders on June 14 at 10:00 a.m. Japan Time.
