Whoa! That was fast! What was probably the most-anticipated makeup launch of the year has already sold out in the US, much to the chagrin of beauty fans. But that’s one of the reasons you like logging in to Hey Pretty Beauty Blog, right? I’m based in Switzerland, and Victoria Beckham’s gorgeous, very limited-edition makeup collection for Estée Lauder is only hitting the counters over here on October 16th!
That’s all the reason I need to post the entire, gorgeous collection: I just received a few products as testers, but the rest of the country has to wait another week to get their hands on these sparkly, moody eye shadows, bronzers and lipsticks.
“I WANT TO MAKE WOMEN FEEL EMPOWERED, TO FEEL SEXY
AND CONFIDENT. THIS MAKEUP COLLECTION DOES THAT. I’M A GIRL’S GIRL, I LOVE TO
MAKE WOMEN FEEL LIKE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES.”
– Victoria Beckham.
So, without further ado, I’ll just rock right through all fifteen Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder products, including a swatch or two.
Lean back and enjoy the beauty porn!
Morning Aura Illuminating Creme
Highlighter Modern Mercury
Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder Bronzer Java Sun
Eye Ink Black Myrrh
Eye Metals Eyeshadow in Bitter Clove
…and Charred Emerald
Mrs. Beckham is sticking to her dramatic, smoky, sparkly eye with these two highlights:
Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder Eye Foil in Blonde Gold and Burnt Anise
I swatched Burnt Anise for you: It’s like an extremely glittery eye gloss/cream shadow. Quite cool!
I wasn’t sure how it would perform on the eyelid, but this stuff sets pretty quickly!
Eye Kajal Duo Black Saffron/Vanille
Shall we break up the product tsunami with a few model visuals featuring Victoria’s «City» looks for London, L.A., New York and Paris?
I THINK WE SHALL.
Wait… is that a hint of a smile, Victoria?
Moving on to the lips:
Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder Lipsticks in Chilean Sunset and Brazilian Nude
Lip Pencil Victoria
Lip Gloss Moroccan Heat
…and here comes the absolute kicker, darling: If you have around $800.00 (or in Switzerland, CHF 1300) to spare, you can nab one of these gorgeous gift sets!
Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder Deluxe Box
This beautifully-crafted mirrored gift box containts the Highlighter Modern Mercury, Eye Metals Eyeshadow in Charred Emerald, Eye Foils in Burnt Anise and Blonde Gold, Eye Kajal Duo Black Saffron/Vanille, Lip Pencil Victoria and both lipsticks: Brazilian Nude and Chilean Sunset.
Sure, the price is steep. But this is Victoria Beckham, after all. And considering that this limited-edition collection has pretty much sold out wherever it’s been launched in the world, I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear from her – whether it’s with Estée Lauder, or with her own make-up line someday?
The Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder Makeup Collection is launching in Switzerland on October 13th 2016, in a limited run at 11 selected Lauder Counters.
The Deluxe Box is exclusive to Jelmoli in Zurich.
