Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Collection

As I was doing my morning stalking across retails for new products, I saw that Saks has all of the items from the Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Collection available for pre-order.  (Swatches are here.)  I don’t normally make multiple availability announcements, except when collections are selling out, which this one is (at least, some of the items).

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette ($95.00 for 0.25 oz.) contains six, shimmery eyeshadows that feature a wet/dry powder formula. I think if you like more pigmented eyeshadows that are blendable and wear well, you will enjoy this palette. That being said, there was not much of a difference between wet and dry for most shades; a couple of shades became more metallic and one had better color payoff applied damp. The formula was soft, smooth, and finely-milled and felt almost velvety to the touch, as it didn’t kick up powder but wasn’t really dense or cream-like either.

Estee Lauder Nude Reveal, Naked Ambition, Slowburn Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Nude Reveal (110) Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque to mostly opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, though there were a few visible streaks along the edges that I could not smooth out. The texture was lightly creamy with some slip and glided on without tugging on the lips, but the formula had a light tackiness that helped it adhere to lips so it did not slide around. This shade wore well for four hours on me and was hydrating. Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud (P, $35.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Soft Savour (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Morning After (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX French Kiss (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).
