When I think of Victoria Beckham, the first word that comes to mind is “classy.” She is beautiful, creative, talented, successful, hard-working, and such a classy lady. When I heard that she collaborated for a second time with Estee Lauder, I was ecstatic! I didn’t pick up items from the first collection, so I was excited that I was able to pick up some bits and pieces this time around.
First off, have you looked at the collection? It’s stunning. It is overwhelming, because honestly, I wanted everything. My wallet though, was telling me otherwise. So, I did my research, read reviews, looked at YouTube videos, and went with the products that I thought would tell the test of time and were a good investment.
Let’s talk a bit about the word investment for this collection. I’m not going to lie. This is a very expensive line. It’s high-end and luxurious.
When I think of an investment, I ask myself these three questions:
1. Do the products I purchased perform well? Yes.
2. Was it worth the money? Yes.
3. Would I buy again? Yes.
The first item I bought was the Skin Perfecting Powder (8.5g). The packaging is beautiful and sturdy with a secure metal clasp. The gold is very lux and makes you feel as though you are living back in a different era. The product itself is literally perfecting. It glides on perfectly and doesn’t crease or budge. I really enjoy using this because a good powder is difficult to find that really works and doesn’t cake up. This fine powder is perfect for initial setting or touching up throughout the day.
The second product is the Bronzer (12g) in the shade Saffron Sun. I read rave reviews about the bronzer and its impeccable finish. The reviews were true. This bronzer is the perfect bronze for my face. It isn’t too orange or blotchy. It gives a youthful, sun-kissed glow that warms you up!
The last product I purchased was the Highlighter (7.5g) in the shade Modern Mercury. This was a highlighter that Estee Lauder made a while back (from what I read), and Victoria Beckham wanted to bring it back. I would like to thank her personally for this. Honestly, Modern Mercury may be my favorite highlighter. It gives the perfect, natural glow and it is not too glittery. This is one that is perfect for every day or a night out. Easy to apply, amazing packaging, fun to have, and a beautiful finish – what more can you ask for!?
End result? I think the items I purchased are amazing, classy, and naturally beautiful. The picture below is a finished look of me using all of the products discussed today.
Do you have your eyes on a piece from this collection?
Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
