I have a question regarding the boxes. I have only purchased powder compacts directly from the Estee Lauder store (the one in Las Vegas) and they came in a gold box and blue ribbon, but it was not the original gold box they normally come in. I am going to Las Vegas at the end of August and plan to stock up on solids, and was wondering if the solids sold at the EL store also do not come in their original boxes, but rather a plain gold box? Is this a regular thing that the EL store does to distinguish items sold at their store vs. other retail stores?
Any comments are appreciated!
