Last year’s COVETED BEAUTY COLLECTION returns, with INSTANT BESTSELLERS and NEW SHADES available later this month …
Estée Lauder has announced that their sell-out Victoria Beckham collaboration is coming back for a limited time only this month. The original collection, which launched last autumn, included a combination of face, eye and lip products. A selection of the original Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder collection will be re-released this month – including the fabulous Morning Aura illuminator/primer/general wonder cream, in its elegant tall gold bottle – along with two brand new shades, a bronzer in Saffron Sun, ideal for lighter skin tones, and a lipstick in Nude Spice Matte.
Beckham worked alongside Sarah Creal, Lead Global Partnerships at Estée Lauder, to formulate the products, all inspired by what she felt was missing from her own make-up bag. “I wanted it to look good in both your handbag and in your bathroom,” Beckham told us at the original launch, held in her Dover Street boutique. “I’ve worked with the best make-up artists in the world and I wanted to share what I’ve learned from that.”
Sleek black and gold packaging gives the collection a luxe feel already associated with both brands, which perfectly complements the subtle product tones in shades of bronze, gold and dark peaches; Beckham consulted the Lauder archives for inspiration: “I chose a lip case from the 1950s – it’s a small chic case but with same amount of lip colour inside.” The compacts, meanwhile, are wonderfully weighty and luxurious. Yet it’s the excellent formulas that mean this collection really does live up the hype – one swipe of the seriously inky black kajal liner will tell you that. If we were to buy just one thing, it would be Morning Aura – it instantly gives tired skin a brightness and glow and is worth its weight in gold.
