I mentioned these compacts in a previous post and a couple of people have asked me about them so I've decided to post a few photos to show you why I want to collect these so badly (and also why I'll never be able to afford to have a large collection).
Every so often Estee Lauder puts out a collector compact that holds a solid perfume. They come in a wide range of prices, and can run anywhere from $35 USD to $500 USD and prices are often higher in the resale market. I've never even bothered to try to find one, but have been told that these sell out really quickly (they're produced in limited numbers) and not all Estee Lauder counters carry them (in Canada, Holt Renfrew is a good place to try).
Here are a few photos I found on eBay to show you just how beautiful these are. And yes, they do actually hold a solid perfume inside! Beauty really is art!
While searching for these photos, I also discovered a few other brands also put out similar compacts, including Avon and Max Factor. I'm definitely going to check these out as they might have a more affordable price tag!
p.s. Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
