This extraterrestrial eyeshadow palette, created by Byredo’s Ben Gorham and makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench features a gold, rippled “rain drop” encasing that looks like a shell you’d find either deep in the ocean or deep in space, and it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

Inside lives a quintet of vivid shades (inspired by musician Yves Tumor) with names like Ginger Hussy, Electric Love, and Karma that are designed to applied with your fingertips. Unbelievably shimmery and sharp, the shadows are so enticing you’ll immediately want to attempt a smoky eye even if you have no idea what you’re doing or just haven’t felt inspired to draw on your face since the Before Times. It’s a beautiful addition to any vanity — even if that ends up being your own.
