Estee Lauder Holiday Compact Collection 2011

To celebrate the holiday season, Estée Lauder invites you to experience the unique and collectible Good Fortune Metal Compact and Solid Perfume Compact Collection. Each year, Estée Lauder unveils a stunning, limited-edition collection full of extravagant pieces that enhance the holiday gift-giving season with refreshing charm and brings an incomparable joy to existing and future collectors alike.

This season’s collection is an ode to the desires of good fortunes: Love, Prosperity, Luck, Success, Happiness and Peace. Each powder compact is ornamented with semi-precious stones representing their fortune, while the solid perfumes are transformed through use of symbolism and color. From the sophisticated detailing on the Beautiful Luck Elephant solid perfume compact to the eye-catching purple agate on the Success Compact, the exceptional details continue to draw attention and have become synonymous with the luxury of the Estée Lauder compacts. In addition to our in-house creations, we joined forces yet again with celebrated American designer, Jay Strongwater, to create elegant and whimsical designs that everyone can enjoy. Each compact is then handcrafted by a specialized team of artisans schooled in the fine art of costume-jewelry making.

Solid perfume compacts feature Estée Lauder’s Beautiful, Youth-Dew, Sensuous, pleasures and White Linen fragrances. Powder compacts include the universally wearable Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder. All holiday compacts are limited edition.

    LOVE. my dad used to buy one of these for my mom each christmas… they remind me of being a kid :) weird?

  4. malia

    Ohhhh these are absolutely gorgeous!! My niece loooves solid perfumes but I’ll have to put these on my “gift me please” list too!!

  5. If ever I could wish for a winning lottery ticket, I would wish for one NOW to get this collection….I love elephants, but that baby is so far out of my budget it’s not funny. Sigh. Pretty pretty pretty.

    These are always so cute each year. I’d love to get one for my mother in law, who is an Estee Lauder junkie.

  7. How lovely are those? *sigh* Alas, I may only look and drool.

  8. Lissa

    OMG I love these they are all so beautiful!

  9. Eva

    Every single one of those pieces are so beautiful! I’m partial to the elephant but could never pick just one favorite. What a magical collection!

  10. cloudburst

    I love the one with the purple agate, kind of over the top but amazing!

    Lovely!! I can’t believe we’re on the Holiday compacts already – it feels like yesterday we were looking at last year’s :O

    The elephant is beautiful, but there’s no way in hell I’m paying $300 for something that’s plastic and rhinestones. I just bought a beautiful ring with three large semi-precious stones set in sterling silver for $200 in Peru, from a recognized jewelry brand. I could not possibly justify spending $300 on plastic, and I don’t know how other people could, either!

      I’m pretty sure that’s enamel, not plastic. I don’t think they’d have the cheek to charge $300 for plastic.

  13. Just when you think packaging can’t get any better! I’m blown away these are beyond beautiful and would make so many people happy come the holiday season :)

  14. Liz

    I like the idea of having fancy compacts, but these aren’t really my style at all… I would have liked them to fit in at least one or two more.. contemporary looking pieces.

  15. wow these are crazy beautiful

  16. Ouch, the prices ouch but very pretty pieces. If only I could afford to add the elephant to my collection :(

  17. Estee Lauder was doing so well…this packaging looks a bit cheap & gaudy! I’m still excited to see what’s inside!

  18. Avatar of Aiman Amy

    It’s such a royal collection!

  19. yttrium

    Tacky as hell. I would be ashamed if somebody saw me using one of those.

  20. queenbea

    These are the stuff dreams (beauty dreams that is) are made of. If they were only a little more affordable…..sigh

  21. I have voted “Love It!” but I can say that I actually adore it!
    I will dream about it for a while, it will haunt my nights because I am sure that I will never afford it. :(
