Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder Modern Mercury

Victoria Beckham. When I hear that name a few images pop into my head, Spice Girls being one of them, but most recently a fashion mogul. Her clothing collection is stunning. I dream of a day when I can own one of her beautiful dresses and look as fabulous and flawless as she does.

So, when I heard that VB is collaborating with Estee Lauder on a makeup collection, I almost fainted. When I saw first images of the collection, I did faint. I knew right there and then that I must possess, if not everything, at least one item from the line. I thought long and hard about that one item and finally decided on the highlighter…of course.

The highlighting powder, called Modern Mercury, is a re-promoted color that has been repackaged to fit VB style, and what a style it is! It comes packaged in a beautiful black and gold, heavy, metal container. The black part almost feels like it is made out of leather. The compact, which costs $65, contains .26 oz./7.5 g of product and comes with a mirror that says Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder on the bottom of it.

The cardboard box the compact comes in is also black and gold on the outside and the interior is white with black polka dots. Over all, Estee Lauder did an amazing job with the packaging. It looks and feels so luxurious that it rivals that of some other luxury brand like Tom Ford Beauty and Charlotte Tilbury.

Now let’s talk about the highlighter itself. In the pan it has a gold bronzy color that almost looks like it might be too dark. However, when you put it on your face… Words cannot describe how amazing it looks, but I will try. The product glides on smoothly, leaving a behind a gorgeous, delicious, luminous gold shine. None of the texture that I have on the tops of my cheeks is accentuated and the glow looks almost like your cheek is wet. Estee Lauder describes it as a “sweaty skin look”, which, though I don’t like the idea of having sweaty skin, I do agree that it is a beautiful BEAUTIFUL product.

Overall, Estee Lauder knocked it out of the park with this illuminator. It has quickly become both mine and Daria’s holy grail product and neither of us has been able to put it down since the day we first received it in the mail. Unfortunately, at the moment this highlighter is sold out everywhere. I have heard that Saks Fifth Avenue might be getting some in stock next month. We will keep you guys updated.

Xoxo,
