Twelve Days of Cosmetic Christmas :: 2nd Day

"On the first day of Christmas my true love gave me to me, THIS!"  On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

{Estee Lauder Aquarius Zodiac Powder Compact, $70.}

I'm not much of a zodiac buff, but I do love to read a good horoscope every now and then for fun.  I like my zodiac description on the Estee Lauder website, which describes people under my water sign as... 
"Open minded and outgoing.  You're original and creative, an independent thinker."

Lauder does these Star Compacts quite often around the holiday season, and I think they are an amazing and personal gift for the woman in your life.  Every lady needs something to stash in her purse to battle the shiny face, and what better more glamorous way to do that than with this gilded tiny compact??  Each one comes with a translucent powder inside, velvet pouch, and zodiac sign on the outside along with a colored crystal.  The only thing is, my birthstone while in January, is a dark red garnet, so this purple stone doesn't really make sense to me, but oh well, it's still pretty!!  Some of the birthstone colors do match up however, so just check out their website to see.

Like I said on my first post on my 12 days of Cosmetic Christmas, I'm going to show some of my fave gift wrap inspirations.  Here's a fancy way to wrap this compact that mimics its luxurious feel!!
