well, do you like estee lauder make-up? i don't (hate the smell in particular, and found the eyeshadows make my skin react) so wouldn't be worth it from my point of view. but if you liked the make-up and there were loads of colours etc you would wear, then it would be more likely to worth it for you.
Can you palm the perfume off as a Christmas present for someone - personally I think Beautiful is a bit nicer?
Why not see if the assistants will give you a makeover using the colours? From what I have seen of the box its a bit bright for my taste and I would be a bit worried that I wouldn't use many of the colours. However it is good value.
I'd prefer just to buy myself the Bobbi Brown palette as at least its a smaller size and I would use everything, plus by the time you have bought the perfume its roughly the same price.
Which one you looking at Greg? Is it the Bellini or the Caviar? Just seen the Bellini on the JL website and it looks lush but I have just bought this beauty //www.johnlewis.com/231684915/Product.aspx which has the best lipstick colour ever ( but dammit only available through the bag so I can't stock up) so not sure I can justify it.
I have the Estée Lauder box about every 3 years . As I always wear their make up it is perfect for me. The blushers and lipsticks are usually fairly neutral colours and the brushes always nice. The presentation is a bit hit and miss. I have the one from about 3 years ago on my dressing table with all my make up in but this year it looks like a holdall and I don't know if I would use that. I think it is excellent value if you look at the price of individual items and makes a lovely gift.
Mmm, I have to say the case / bag thing isn't doing much for me. I wear Double Wear but that isn't really relevant to the pack. I need to do a big clear out of old makeup and realistically what I need is nice neutral daytime colours.....
