Nothing make me happier, than having all the elements that I love in a beauty collection all come together so perfectly, such as with this Eye Palette from the smash-hit Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Collection. Being a detail-oriented person, it means a lot when a brand doesn’t skimp — especially when you factor in an accompanying steep price, and thankfully the sublimeness (new word alert) of this palette meets and exceeds all expectations.

Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Eye Palette (CAN $115.00) | The compact itself has a nice & hefty feel (which I adore) and comes with fluted black leather detailing on the lid plus a large mirror on the inner portion silkscreened with the VB name, as well as a retro-glam style brass snap closure. The palette holds six jewel-like shimmery eyeshadow shades, but not of the glitter chunky type; think more complex and refined. The texture of each hue is in Estée Lauder’s baked gelée format that gives them an almost creamy feel to the touch (you really notice it by running your fingers across their surface), but which comes to a powder finish. Pigmentation-wise, all six are RIDICULOUS; so colour-saturated that you won’t need to apply them with a dampened brush to see serious payoff, with all displaying an exceptional blendability as well. Staying power (over primer) is bang on, staying true until removed: zero fading. The shade breakdown:

  • Fired Sapphire – metallic blue with turquoise hints
  • Blonde Cumin – soft gold-tinged beige
  • Metal Saffron – warm golden metallic honey/taupe
  • Burnished Sage – metallic forest green
  • Grey Amber – smoky charcoal grey, nearly black
  • Black Nutmeg – shimmering copper brown

The collector in me is ecstatic, but the beauty geek in me is even more thrilled with this Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Eye Palette. The very epitome of what a luxury fall eyeshadow palette should be, I’m also loving the exotic-sounding and spice-inspired names of each hue. Even without any matte shades amongst the six, I’m still able to ground the colours and make them work for both day and night looks — it all comes down to the combinations used and how layered I want to go. The biggest shocker for me, is that this palette is still available online so get your credit card out & RUN don’t walk to pick it up (so to speak), and enjoy.

What have you lovelies picked up from this collection? Let me know!

    I didn’t purchase the eye palette because I thought the colours were tricky to me, especially the blue, but now, reading your thought and enthusiasm I’m having doubts!!
    I bought the highlight (stunning), the nude lipstick and lip pencil (beautiful quality and texture) and the eye pencil as I couldn’t resist that nude color for the waterline. I have never found a waterline pencil that didn’t irritate my red and super reactive eyes and this one doesn’t! Hooray!
    I had to rush as the collection was very limited and only available at one place in my country (Portugal).

      The palette is truly lovely and even though the blue shade isn’t one I’ll probably reach for often, the rest all make up for that (but in all honesty, that blue is pretty spectacular, lol!) I love the lipstick as well – ranks as one of my fave nudes to wear. Happy to hear the pencil worked well with your eyes and that you were able to scoop some of the key pieces!

      Portugal….how fabulous! It’s definitely on my list of places to visit!

What are your thoughts, beautiful?
