When we first spied the Estée Lauder Heritage Collection last month at Neiman Marcus, we initially thought it was vintage.
Upon closer look, we realized that the limited edition Heritage Collection is a selection of signature Lauder products repackaged for a new generation of women.
Aerin Lauder, Senior Vice President, Creative Director, Estée Lauder, and grand-daughter of the icon says, “The Estée Lauder Heritage Collection was inspired by the wonderful style of my grandmother, Estée, and her gracious warmth, impeccable taste and attention to every detail. This collection celebrates her favorite color blue which is so much a part of the Lauder legacy today. It is luxuriously packaged in a reinterpretation of one of her favorite patterns. The Heritage Collection includes classic Estée Lauder pieces plus modern updates of some of my personal favorites.”
The piece that grabbed us the most is the blue globe-shaped pendant that houses the classic White Linen parfum in a solid form. We later found out that this pendant is an exact replica of one developed by Mrs. Estée Lauder. This gorgeous pendant hangs from a gold-plated chain necklace and reminds us of our own grandmother in whose vanity we discovered White Linen over two decades ago.
We also love the Face Glow Compact which is a versatile cream blush luminizer packaged in a gold compact that features the blue and white pattern seen throughout this collection and the three vintage lipstick colors- Polished Plum (our favorite), Civilized Rose and Sandbar Beige- brought back and reworked for maximum wearability. (Also in this grouping are two best-selling shades, Maplesugar and Rosa Rosa).
