Brightly Shining Estée Lauder launches their haute holiday compacts.

Since the introduction of its first-ever solid fragrance compact in 1963, the Youth-Dew Boutique Oval, Estée Lauder has churned out one exquisite design after another, brim-full with elegance, decadence and as this year's collection shows, the sweetest and biggest baubles ever.

Rustan's Makati played hostess to the brand's roving exhibition and showcased the intricate pieces up for auction, the proceeds of which benefited the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Getting their inspiration from the supersized accessories on the fall runways, the collection now numbers almost 750, with new additions each year superceding the previous in artful design and pure glamour. The compacts have seen the touch of famous jewelry designers like Judith Lieber and Jay Strongwater and take approximately one year to grow from conceptualization to full, handcrafted completion.

The meticulously made compacts, which have nature, vintage, Art Deco, and precious holiday-themed collections, are so special! In fact, that they are exhibited around the world in museums and special displays. The collectors items fly back to New York after their tour is done, but if you hurry, you can marvel at their gorgeous gems while they're still on show at Rustan's Makati.

And for that truly special someone, a candy cane or festive lolly encasing her fave classic Estée scent ensures a merry Christmas, indeed.
