If you’re into cute, shiny and functional things then you will love the Estée Lauder Bright Owl Powder Compact. Designed by luxe jewellery designer Monica Rich Kosann, the compact is one of those rare gems that you’ll want to carry around with you everywhere, so you can occasionally stop and peep its beauty.

The compact contains perfecting pressed powder, ensuring that the only way any fine lines and imperfections will be spotted this Xmas is under a microscopic lens. Instead, the powder creates a soft-focus effect — in the same way a great #filter does — which will give whoever is on the receiving end of this present some seriously luminous skin. The compact is also refillable, truly qualifying it as the gift that keeps on giving.

In this instance though, it’s really what’s on the outside that counts. The owl’s all-knowing eyes look like delicious little orange slices, and the rest of the jewel-encrusted compact strikes a perfect balance between the ritzy and the adorbs. Significantly improve the steez of your besties makeup case with this cute little mate, which comes in a très elegant, velvet-lined box.

What a hoot!
