hope you are all well.
I am in total comfort-cosy mode, with loungewear and nice music on, so why not doing the thing I love more?
Let's talk make up then!
Yesterday afternoon I was shopping in Harvey Nic and Selfridges and I was happy to notice than the Victoria Beckham x Estee lauder collection is still available at the Estee lauder counters.
When it first came out, I had mixed filling towards this collection: to buy because in Vic we trust or to skip cos for God's sake we are drowning in make up?
At first, I decided to skip it but a very casual (not casual at all, ok) visit to the counter where there was a preview made me change my mind in 2 seconds.
Once I swatched the entire collection, I was sure about what to order, and few months after I can guarantee I do not regret the purchase.
First of all, packaging is in perfect MRS Beckham's signature style: sleek and posh.
The cases are sturdy, real designer pieces.
The first thing I bought was the Highlighter in 01 modern merculy (£48).
Inside the sleek and retro packaging, the highlighter is a fine powder with a bronzed gold finished.
I apply it with a fan brush (Zoeva does the best fan brushes ever) and just from the first stroke you will have a perfect ray of light right there where you want.
It blends nicely and gives that wet kind of look.
It's quite buttery so I love the fact that doesn't have any fall out all over the case...or your freashly ironed shirt.
I have used this a lot and yes, totally worthy that ammount of money.
Second (and last, but oh well, who knows...there may be another little shopping spree soon) item I got from the collection is the Eye Metals Eyeshadow in 01 bitter clove (£36).
I knew this was gonne sold out in a blink as soon as I swatched it.
It's a kind of metal taupe shade, with a powder/cream texture and a metal finish.
I really struggle to use this with a brush due to the texture, so I tried a little sponge applicator and it did the trick.
I am very tempted to buy more like the red lipstick in Chilean Sunset and the bronzer but I will not deny I really hope to find some sale going on in January.
Once again, thanks to Estee Lauder for bringing us a little piece of our Vic all for ourselves.
Collection is available online here and in all Estee lauder counters.
