Victoria Beckham is such a classy sophisticated women, I love her clothing line and she always looks immaculate. When Estée Lauder first released their Victoria Beckham collection I loved everything, beautiful shades in stunning packaging and I was instantly in love with the highlighter, but most of the products went out of stock really quickly. Estée Lauder then announced that they were bringing back some of the favourites from the collection and some new products and this time I wasn’t missing out.
PIN IT!I could easily buy everything from the line, it’s just so beautiful and the shades are exactly what I like to wear and feel comfortable in. One of the new additions to the collection is the matte lipstick Nude Spice which is a stunning nude shade, I was very tempted but decided to stick to the highlighter, Modern Mercury.
PIN IT!PIN IT!PIN IT!PIN IT! When I was placing my ordering it said Victoria Beckham exclusive packaging and I thought that it would just be labeled tissue paper, I didn’t expect it to turn up in this luxurious box, such a lovely surprise. When you have a special collaboration I think the extra details of beautiful packaging and luxurious boxes adds to the experience of owning something that is essentially quite expensive. But when the product itself is stunning and everything looks great I feel that it’s money well spent.
PIN IT!The highlighter itself is just so incredible, when I opened the gorgeous heavy black and gold lid I actually gasped, I know that sounds silly but the photos honestly don’t do it justice, it is a stunning highlighter. At first I was too scared to even swatch it because it was so pretty. It’s definitely a warm highlighter and does remind me of Soft & Gentle by MAC. It’s very shimmery but can easily be worn lightly for a subtle look or built up for a more intense finish. The swatch is a heavy swatch as I wanted you to be able to see the true colour of it, I only swirled in the pan a couple of times and achieved the intense colour. It’s very pigmented and the powder itself is very soft.
PIN IT! PIN IT!PIN IT!I think it’s pretty obvious how much I love this product, I’m so glad I finally got my hands on it, it’s a great addition to my collection. Expensive yes definitely, worth it? Every penny.
