If you’re still yet to tick everything off your Christmas present shopping list concerning the ladies in your life, then you’re off the hook, for I have found a pretty darn awesome gift that ticks both the personalised and beauty boxes meaning that it’s guaranteed to be awesome. Estée Lauder offer up a limited edition, collectable range of makeup bits and bobs each year and this time round their Zodiac Powder Compacts have tickled my fancy. 12 designs, one for each star sign; small, but weighty each compact holds a refillable pan of the Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder and a mini mirror that you’ll want to whip out to reapply your lippie on the tube even if you don’t have to. Sure, the powder is a nice addition but personally I think this is one of those ‘keep till you’re a glam Grandma’ products, more of a keepsake than anything else. And a very nice one at that.

If there are any Libras in your friends and family circle then particularly take note as their design is rather fabulous. The Estée Lauder Zodiac Powder Compacts are available now online at Harrods and if you order by 1pm tomorrow for UK delivery you’ll have it in their hands just in time for Christmas. Phew.

    I snatched up one of these little beauties as soon as I saw them – completely unnecessary and indulgent but I don’t care and they are soo glamorous to pull out of the handbag :o ). Xx

    I wish I liked the way the gemini one looked or I’d like to get one for myself:/

    I picked up the Aquarius one for my sister yesterday. House of Fraser on Oxford Street had them in stock, if anyone is looking for one in the West End. I thought the Leo one had the best design.

    This is the nicest compact I’ve ever seen! It’s definitely worth showing off at every opportunity.

    I may have spent more money on myself than anyone else this December but I don’t see why I shouldn’t just splurge again! It’s gorgeous!

    I love these!! I’m a Libra and the designs are usually really naff. Not a lot you can do with scales really. But the Libra compact is really beautiful! xx
