With vintage packing taken straight from the Estée Lauder archives, complete with a very old school click-click compact, it's almost as if this trio has been pinched straight off the set. So while the See Thru Blush in Light Show, Rich Lipstick in Pinkadelic and Nail Lacquer in Pink Paisley may be bang on trend for spring/summer 2013, it almost makes us feel in character. Pity Don Draper isn't a gift with purchase really.
