After hitting the pan of my NARS Paloma bronzer, I wanted to try something new. Preferably a bronzer with a super large pan for my TOM FORD bronzer brush to fit in. As I was browsing through the different makeup brands at Magasin Du Nord (a.k.a my pied-à-terre), I stumbled upon the Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder collaboration display at the Estée Lauder counter. Needless to say I was immediately drawn by it, for two main reasons:
First – The collection simply looked very beautiful, elegant and coherent (I’m actually tempted to buy more from it).
Second – I’m such a huge fan of Victoria Beckham. She is chic, modern and has incredible taste, so I knew this collaboration was going to be top notch. Not to mention she used to be a Spice Girl…Yes I’m a fan girl, what more can I say!
The bronzer immediately attracted me because of it’s medium brown warm color with a yellow undertone. This type of shade is personally very flattering on my skin tone (medium/tan). It also comes in a lighter shade (Saffron Sun) which I would recommend for lighter skin tones.
As for the pigmentation, it is very good and excellent at adding natural looking warmth to my complexion.
The bronzer comes in a gorgeous leather and gold compact which looks and feels very luxurious. Applying it is super enjoyable as it’s smooth and super silky. The matte texture makes it a good all-season bronzer.
I also like how natural looking it is while still giving me the polished look I’m always aiming for. I’m personally really not into the heavy contouring trend, but I can easily obtain a nice natural chiseled look without overdoing it with this one. The lasting power is also very long (roughly around 8 hours on my skin).
This obviously retailed a bit expensive (456 DKK/65$). You are clearly going to pay for the celebrity name and the packaging on top of the product. However, the quality is definitely there, it lasts very long on the skin and you get so much product out of it. I don’t think I’ll be hitting the pan anytime soon with this one. If you are interested in purchasing it, you can find it at NET-A-PORTER.
Well, you might find a cheaper and more suitable bronzer on the market. However, if you’re a makeup lover and a big fan of beautiful packaging just like me, I recommend getting this compact as a collector piece.
