“I want to make women feel empowered, to feel sexy and confident. This makeup collection does that. I have to make women feel like the best version of themselves.” – Victoria Beckham

The Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder limited edition makeup collection was introduced to the western market in early September. I had the privilege of receiving the highlighter end a lipstick a few weeks ago. I held off on writing about it until I tried it. I have not stopped using the highlighter. I loved the pieces so much, I went to SM Aura to buy more from the collection. It only debuted in the Philippine market yesterday, October 8th. But I am getting ahead of myself.

The VB x Estee Lauder collection is all about sweaty-sexy skin, fiercely lined eyes, nude lips, wet finishes, liquid metals, foil shine. It is sexy, cool with a bit of rawness and edge. It is meant to be worn smudgy with the confidence to be imperfect.

This is the Brazilian Nude lipstick that was sent to me by Estee Lauder. I love how smooth and natural-looking it is. It has tiny specks of shimmer that is almost invisible, so don’t expect sparkle, instead you get a lot of shine. The other lipstick is Chilean Sunset, a bold and bright red, which is packaged in a gold tube.

This is the winning piece of the collection. The Modern Mercury highlighter. I use it everyday. Sometimes I use  it as eyeshadow. I will be very sad when this runs out on me. I checked online and this is pretty much sold out everywhere.

Modern Mercury was a previous limited edition Estée Lauder highlighter that became a favourite of Victoria’s. Naturally, she had to include it in her capsule collection. It comes in a sleek gold compact with ribbed leather pads. So beautiful. You can use it to highlight and contour your the face. I wear it on my cheekbones the way Victoria wears hers, as you’ll see in all her photos that her cheekbones are very sharp and sexy.

The lipgloss in Moroccan Heat is a warm, nude lip gloss that offers high shine for a polished look. Infused with Estée Lauder’s signature fig scent, this lip gloss can be worn alone or over lipstick to give a plump and polished pout.

The eye palette comes in six powder eyeshadow shades that can be applied wet or dry. Innovative dual purpose pearlized pigments have a translucency that allow these eyeshadows to reflect light and pull light into the formula for a more vibrant look. This palette contains: Fired Sapphire, a shocking metallic blue; Blonde Cumin, a soft, gold-hued nude; Metal Saffron, a warm, golden metallic honey; Burnished Sage, a burnt metallic intense green; Grey Amber, a smoky charcoal grey; Black Nutmeg, a shimmery copper.

“I have been collecting makeup for many years. I am always mixing colours to get what I want. With this collection, I believe I have created many of the key pieces that you really need in your makeup kit. As a woman who likes to wear makeup, this is exactly what I want. Not I am excited to share it with women everywhere.”

Eye Foil in Burnt Anise, a strong, rich, charcoal shine. These breakthrough new liquid eye foils deliver intense vinyl-like shine – even after they’ve dried. Sparkling pearl pigments add flecks of blonde gold or silver in this liquid metal-effect formula.

At the Estee Lauder boutique in SM Aura this afternoon, October 9th, they still had a few items available from the collection. I bought the 6-shade eye palette for P4535, and eye foil in Burnt Anise for P1720. I am so in love with them.
