Estee Lauder Heritage Collection

You are looking at the new Heritage Collection for Estee Lauder. Created by Aerin Lauder in honor of her grandmother Estee, this collection is incredibly beautiful and elegant.

The packaging begins the beauty with a new retro inspired pattern on the boxes. The boxes themselves are slide out compartments that you pull out with an attached mini tassel.

Every piece is wonderful, and they all evoke a feeling of a time, but I especially loved the face glow. It comes in an enamel compact, and is a called bronze, but is peach . I love the Azuree face glow compact and this one is pretty as well. The face glows are a very creamy, easy to blend product, that rival NARS multiples( with somewhat less pigment) The compacts make them that much more worth buying.

A lipstick and pressed powder set is available, and contains an enamel Lucidity pressed powder, and an All Day lipstick brought back for this line. There are 3 choices: Bermuda Bronze, Spanish Melon, and Venetian Plum. The lipsticks come in a goldtone case topped with a navy cabochon. These are presented so well in one of the lovely boxes.

In bringing back some vintage shades, the company has also put together an All Day lipstick set containing 2 current shades: Maple Sugar, and Rosa Rosa, and 3 more vintage colors: Civilized Rose, Sandbar Beige, and Polished Plum.

White Linen has been released as a pure parfum
There is also a solid pendant version of White Linen,( an exact replica of one of Mrs. Lauders), White Linen candle in a glass holder, a set of White Linen soaps, a gold plated hairbrush, and a minaudiere.
Yes, a minaudiere. I love these, and while I don't own any, I do have some nice vintage handbags at least. This comes with an All Day lipstick in red and a pressed powder compact.

Mothers Day isn't too far away, and I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be very happy to receive any of these goodies as a present. They also make a great treat to you. You will not be unhappy that you purchased them.

With this and the Azuree Collection, Estee Lauder has really outdone itself , I think, and has brought the company more to the forefront of cosmetics. This may be your mother or grandmothers brand, but it definitely yours too.
I have been a recent Lauder fan myself. I really came to use and love this brand only about 5 years ago. It was not my mother's brand either, but now she loves it too. Their Pure Color lipsticks are , to me, the best out there.

The White Linen parfum .25 oz is 90.00
The White Linen candle is 50.00
The White Linen Soaps 35.00
The Minaudiere is 550.00
The perfume pendant is 150.00
The Compact/Lipstick is 85.00
The Lipstick set is 87.50
The Face Glow is 50.00
The Hairbrush( I so want this) is 50.00

The line is available at Neimans,Bergdorfs, and Saks.
