Graphic design love. Gorin Face Powder, you are beautiful.

This matchbox-sized vintage Thai packaging envelope bursts with Technicolor flowers and, at the heart of the party, a blonde bombshell that could send cosmetics flying off the shelf in any era.

The red and yellow banner at the bottom urges readers to “Rawung Kawng Plawm”. Translation: “Beware of imitators” or, more directly, “Beware of fakes”. I’m not sure if this is a marketing ploy, an earnest warning about counterfeit powders, or delicious social commentary?
