When I was in my teens, I always got one of these amazing sets for Christmas so whenever I see them now, they always evoke lovely memories. I’d sneak the box up to my bedroom and pick over each piece, smelling the lipsticks (and to this day I love the scent of an Estee Lauder lipstick) and swatching the colours. Estee Lauder comes up with a collection like this every Christmas – this year’s is pretty impressive. The deal is that you buy one EL fragrance, and then you can buy the make up set for £49. Thinking back, I don’t know who got the fragrance in Christmasses past – it certainly wasn’t me! Anyway, the colour set contains £312 worth of make up, so there’s just nothing not to like, apart from that it is sold out on line and the only place to get one now appears to be Harrods.
