What’s in your red-carpet clutch bag?
Bombshells like Lauren Bacall, left, undoubtedly carried compacts in theirs. We may carry a makeup palette in these modern times, but how many of us would love to have the new Estee Lauder Harrods 50th Anniversary Compact in our clutch?
This lovely compact, available now, from Harrods for a limited time, for £200, has been created to mark the beauty brand’s first foray into UK stores in 1960, when they opened their Harrods counter.
The reason a compact has been created as an Anniversary collectible? Lauder is famous for them.
Ever since the first solid-perfume compact, the Youth Dew Boutique Oval Compact was launched in 1963, Estee Lauder have produced more than 750 compact designs to date!
To celebrate the outstanding relationship between Harrods and Estee Lauder, this wonderfully regal and ornate compact captures and symbolises the luxury and splendour of both brands. The beautifully embellished timepiece is hand enamelled and filled the Beautiful solid perfume.There are only 300 of them as well.
If you can’t stretch to £200, and you want a powder compact, then Estee Lauder’s gorgeous Alligator compact, left, with Lucidity pressed powder (£35, www.esteelauder.co.uk) is a good bombshell-choice!
But if you want to carry a kit in your clutch, then maybe the latest Bobbi Brown Cabana Coral Lip & Eye Palette, below, (£48 www.bobbibrown.co.uk). Bang on trend coral colours in a sleek modern black case. We’re sure our bombshells would have approved.
