First of all, I want to say that I LOVE the packing of this collection. Both, the lipstick and the cream blush, came in an adorable vintage box. But, what it is really cute is the gold, velvet lined case in which they come in. This will help to prevent scratching them in your makeup purse while traveling. I think that this is a fabulous idea, since the compact and the lipstick tube are limited edition and, in my opinion; collectable.
This creamy formula blends easily and holds very well during the day given a very nice rosy blush to the cheeks.
This lipstick is my favorite from the collection, however, Estée Lauder went totally vintage with this smaller lipstick tube. Back in the 1960s, lipsticks were not as big as we are used to see now. When I looked at it at the counter at Bloomindale's and thought that it was a sample size, but it is .07oz of lipstick. I put it next to other lipsticks so you can see the difference yourself.
Despite of its size, this is a gorgeous cherry color lipstick that will flatter any skin tone. The formulation is very silky and it glides very smoothly proving a lot of hydratation to the lips. It last approximately five-six hours without any touch-ups. The price is $25.00.

What do you think of this collection? Do you feel tempted to buy it? I heard that Estée Lauder will launch a second collection next year. I can't wait for it.
