Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Eye Palette
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.

The compact itself has heft and has a very solid clasp. The black-hued portion is not plastic, and it has a softer, slightly plush feel–like leather (or pleather), but I’m not certain if it’s real leather or not, and it is carried through all of the collection’s compact products.

Fired Sapphire is a bright, medium blue with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque and wasn’t as pearlized as it was when it was applied damp, where the shimmer was more noticeable and gave the color a brighter look overall (and it was totally opaque). The consistency was soft, blendable, and silky, so it was easy to work with on bare skin and did not need a primer to perform well at all! This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. Makeup Geek Blue My Mind (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Grande Pro (Vol. 2) #19 (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). KKW Beauty Libra (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blonde Cumin is a light-medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It was richly pigmented both applied dry and damp, while damp application made the shimmer appear smoother and more reflective. The texture was soft, smooth, and easy to work with on the lid as the color blended out easily without losing its intensity. On me, it wore for eight hours before I noticed subtle fading. Too Faced Bananas (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Fringe (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Comfort Zone #4 (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Metal Saffron is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden bronze shimmer. It had opaque color payoff both wet and dry, while the damp application was slightly smoother and more reflective. The texture was silky, smooth, and finely-milled, but it wasn’t powdery or dusty, so it adhered beautifully to bare skin and I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before creasing slightly. Kat Von D Copper (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Don't Settle (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Chiffon (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Brownie (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop 8 Track (LE, $5.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Starfish (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Pretty Vulgar Conquer (PiP, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop Tinker Time (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Les Precieux #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Ombres LamΓ©es de Chanel #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Buche de Noel (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Evening Light (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME658 Golden Brown (DC, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Viseart Grande Pro (Vol. 2) #17 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Maybelline Downtown Brown (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Blaze (PiP, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Natasha Denona Raw Gold (13M) (PiP, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Burnished Sage is a medium-dark forest green with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. Again, the color payoff was the same regardless of application method–totally opaque–which isn’t as described but I expect that to be welcomed by most. The texture was soft, just a smidgen dusty, but it applied well to the lid without sheering out or becoming patchy when blended. It wore well for almost nine hours before I saw signs of fading. Smashbox STFU (PiP, ) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Epic (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #11 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Indio (DC, $25.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Graffiti (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 (DC, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Empire (LE, $5.00) is lighter (80% similar). Dior Emerald #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Sugarpill Junebug (P, $13.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Too Faced Christmas Tree (LE, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gray Amber is a dark, charcoal gray with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, satiny shimmer. It was semi-opaque and appeared warmer and lighter when applied dry, while the damp application yielded opaque coverage that was much more intense and appeared deeper in overall color. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but not prone to sheering out or fading over time, as it still wore for a solid eight hours before I detected changes in intensity. MAC Nighttrain (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #4 (PiP, ) is lighter (95% similar). Viseart Diane (PiP, ) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Caviar (P, $45.00) is glossier (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Black Nutmeg is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. When I applied it dry, it appeared less intense and a little lighter than when I applied it damp, though the coverage was opaque applied both wet and dry. The powder had a soft, smooth, and silky texture that wasn’t powdery or dusty. It adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease, and it stayed on well for eight and a half hours. Giorgio Armani Senso (10) (P, $39.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Spoiled (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Seduction #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Jardins Eclatants #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Codes Elegants #4 (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). The Estee Edit Burn (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Peach Pit (PiP, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lost (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Sinful (LE, $14.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Antique Bronze (PiP, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Fingers Crossed (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Buckwheat (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Havana (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Stila Twig (LE, $24.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Gravitational (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever I606 Pinky Earth (DC, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Mosaic (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Tisse d'Automne #3 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Golden Age #1 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Bronze (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Oh my gosh, the shadows are SO gorgeous!! Aaargh! I wish she had done singles of these, as I can’t afford $ 95 for the kit, and I don’t need every shade either. I love Burnished Sage ( the Christmas tree green puts me in the mood for holidays) and Grey Amber (it blends out to a nice smoky gray).

LOL! Do you really, though? Because oh my goodness, the singles are $45. I don’t know if the formula is the same (there are two shades – I believe both are due to arrive today), but they are whoppers, lol.

OMG this looks gorgeous! I want it just for that beautiful blue, although I love all the colors. It’s really a surprise since I tend to think of Estee Lauder as an old lady brand and wouldn’t buy anything from the line. But I think I may pass because I’ve been on quite the shopping spree lately and cannot justify $95 at the moment…but maybe down the road when my wallet recovers.

Everything I have actually tested (not just swatched) so far has been really good, as it should for the price, but $95 is a lot to commit all at once!

I have many EL products purchased over the last 3 years and I think they have moved past the “old lady” label, but their skin care may keep “consumers of a certain age” coming back. They have some fantastic purple lip shades that are better than anything Mac has.

Give the range a try.

These are beautiful and impressive quality. I especially like Black Nutmeg and Blonde Cumin, can imagine wearing them often. But the price point and that it’s LE make it a non-starter for me, though this signals good things for EL that will have me looking out for more of their products in the future.

I especially love Black Nutmeg and, like others, wish it were sold separately (and less than $45). The pigmentation is superb. Your eye look is stunning, Christine.

I’m curious if they will do more collaborations, since everything has sold pretty well, and if they will consider doing smaller singles at $30ish, which is high, but more palatable than $45.

I heard if this launch is successful, it may lead to a broader effort.

Am interested in your review of the singles. I read/saw 2 reviews where the metallic brown shade was recommended as a shade pressed onto the eyelid as a finishing touch, like those in Charlotte Tilbury palettes.

It’s pretty intense – swatches in the gallery now of the singles – but they’re super dense so I’d say better applied on its own than pressed. I feel like you’d end up getting a really dark color where you might want a spotlight, perhaps?

I was not going to buy this but your review and your beautiful eye look has changed my mind! Arrrgggghhh my wallet is dying – that’s ok I can justify this by skipping the Marc Jacobs holiday palette right? LOL

There you go πŸ™‚

Here’s my philosophy when it comes to price and value – so while this is $95, the MJB is $99, and if you’d use this much more often than the MJB palette, I think it is a better buy for you. Even a $30 single eyeshadow can be well worth it compared to a $50 eyeshadow palette you wear a handful of times!

The only places I saw this collection available were the Estee Lauder site, Bergdorfs site, and Selfridges site. Are they coming to the other stores later?

I’m not certain – I have seen one site mention it will be at other locations in October (basically all other EL retailers), but WWD (which I would trust more) was specific about Estee Lauder, Bergdorf Goodman, Victoria Beckham, and Selfridges.

Oooh, thanks! I have it marked on my calendar, hoping my local Saks/NM has it. I don’t know about creating that “sweaty skin” look, but Modern Mercury looks really pretty, want to swatch it in store to see what all the fuss is about, hope I don’t fall in love.

I just got further clarification that: select Saks stores, select Neiman Marcus stores, and select Nordstrom stores will receive it (along with Nordstrom online), as well as NET-A-PORTER online.

I believe Modern Mercury was released in the past, but I don’t have the original to compare the one from this launch to – but I can say that when I swatched it, it had such a spectacular dazzle. Now that there’ll be more opportunities to purchase, I’ll for sure review some of the sold out items (at the moment) next week.

Oh no, did you say “spectacular dazzle”??? Eeeek, I might be kissing $ 65 bye bye. Ok, will await your review and if it’s that good, will join the stampede to get it. Good thing none of the holiday collections are calling me, because this might be my splurge……

Lordy. I just called Estee Lauder out of curiosity to see what they’d say about the collection being available at other retailers, to see if they’d say the same thing they told you. Of course they didn’t. The woman I spoke with said she asked her supervisor and was told it was only on EsteeLauder.com, that it was currently sold out, and that it won’t be at any other stores ?. I told her that sounded incorrect because it was available at Bergdorfs last week online and she backtracked and said she didn’t know for sure, that is could possibly be at other retailers. Ugh, I hate when a brand’s customer service gives you inconsistent information that’s all over the place. I purchased the highlighter myself from Bergdorfs last week so I’m just kind of confused as to why she told me it was exclusive to Estee Lauder’s site. Anyway, sorry to rant. And I wasn’t saying all this to say you were wrong about the collection coming to other stores in October. I just get so annoyed when brands tell you different things about a collection release and there’s no clear information. I hope it does come to Nordstrom though. I really want the eyeshadow palette now.

Totally understand, Kelley! I have been there, too, with trying to figure out availability sometimes πŸ™

Estee Lauder sent over the official press release today after I was asking about other retailers, and they had the whole laundry list – so that is pretty official. I have seen dates get moved up and moved out compared to what was the official date, but I don’t think I have seen a press release say ABC retailers and it was just A. The hard part is whenever a brand says “select locations,” because it usually means major metro stores but can be as limited as say, LA/NYC or it could be many more but not all!

BG does have it online now, though πŸ™‚

Boy, does that kind of stuff annoy the wazoo out of me. Esp when you are asking for clarification and you know more than the company representatives. Thanks to C, I am often far better informed than tha S SAs. Wake up and have the correct info about your product, people! I esp love when they say ‘No, you’re wrong.’ when I’m not…usually due to online only, but not labeled that way online. Arrrrgh. CS should have an info sheet with faqs, especially about availability, notably for LE releases.

Thanks for telling me ☺️ In that case, I might have to go ahead and order the eyeshadow palette now, haha. I don’t know why I thought the eyeshadow palette had sold out there.

Ugh, so pretty! I really wish it was less expensive, like in the $55-60 range, tops, but maybe I’ll cave. I have to agree with other commenters about EL putting out some really good products lately. I like the Edit range at Sephora, have gotten a few lipsticks and Metallishadows and am happy with the colors and quality.

I hear ya, Alice! I knew it was going to be higher-priced than Estee Lauder’s regular range, but it was still a bit shocking when details went live!

This is solid, and lends itself to many looks. Yours, of course, is gorg… It also seems to be a palette that will play well with others. It could see a lot of use for many shadow fans. And the quality is there. Representative of the aesthetic I associate w/VB. Good job, EL, all except the access. But remember that EL owns MAC, so they own the patent on limited edition/limited access. What it says to me, is commit to Bijoux. Gotta get that green. Also like Grey Amber, natch. EL does seem to be reimaging, away from a mature brand….I mean that in both senses (business and old lady). I can say that; I am one. Their skincare has always had legions of devotees, esp ANR. EL marketed Clinique to the younger set, with ‘younger’ skin issues. As a person with a Cosrx hydrocolloid patch on to damp down that zit before my 50 th hs reunion, age certainly isn’t the only factor… But EL has def improved in color cosmetics over the past decade. They had totally lost my interest. Look at the newer lips. Wow. Way to stay competitive, EL. Maybe it’s Aerin.

You are right on the money, KJH – it is versatile enough to be worn on its own, but the types of shades included would work well with other palettes/eyeshadows you won, too.

I’m glad this performed so well for the price! I had it calendared for the release and had sticker shock when it did. I couldn’t/can’t justify the cost for a palette (as gorgeous as it its) when I have dupes or close-to of all of the shades. Although it wouldn’t be completely unwelcome as a gift during this upcoming holiday season πŸ˜‰

I love this, especially the burnished sage. Not coming home with me as it is way above my price tolerance, and luckily I don’t need it.

I think EL has done wonders re-branding itself, and shedding what was a growing stodgy image. They’ve worked to improve a higher end image, and their pivot to becoming a more “aspirational” brand seems to be working.

I do hope that we don’t see totally climbing prices on the range, but it will be interesting if the brand releases more collaborations or uses this as a platform to launch an entire line with Victoria Beckham’s name and touch on it.

I can’t justify this at this price (I wear eyeshadow in my crease maybe twice a week, and that’s pretty much it), but these jolie laide (for my skin color) shades are so darn pretty!

Your eye look with this is amazing.

I’m not in the position to pay $95 for a palette but if I was going to it would be something like this. Luxe packaging and gorgeous shades; a nice mixture of neutrals and unique shades. I wish all high end palettes looked and performed like this.

Spectacular palette, but $95 for only 6 shades is a bit much when 4 of the shades are so readily dupable. But that GREEN, though!
It is a really nice one, but I’d still much rather get Viseart Bijoux palette instead.

With you, there. Plus, you have to score your Selena. The golden browns ARE pretty dupable. This would be a great gift for a makeup person who wants to branch out from neutrals and does not indulge in HE for her/himself.

Exactly! A ton of Selena, and hopefully Viseart Bijoux once I decide whether to move across town to “Boringville” or renew my lease here. Both kids think that me living only a little over a mile away from a freestanding MAC Store and a Sephora is very bad for their mu addict Momma! LoL

That’s what I thought too.! The $80 Viseart Bijoux has 2x more shadows, is a lot easier to get my hands on, and I might be able to get 20-25% off with Sephora or Muse Beauty sale/cash back, so would bring it down to much more reasonable $60-$65 range, which is same price as Dior or Chanel kit. See how I talk myself into trouble?

If I remember correctly, the Sephora sale is around November, and Ulta always has their 20% off for Platinum members right before that, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Muse Beauty did same. I think a number of retailers time their big sales for right BEFORE the Sephora one. After all, if Ulta sells 1 million UD palettes before the Sephora sale hits, that’s more UD sales for Ulta and less for Sephora. I think that’s why Sephora doesn’t like to announce their sale dates until last minute, and the date moves around every year. Anyways, save your pennies. There seems to be a glut of holiday stuff this year, along with a zillion new lippies, so let’s hope for some good sales πŸ™‚

I Love the nude shades. But it is too expensive to buy When I will only use half of the shadows. But in the dupe List there Are really good alternatives especially for blonde cumin which I like most. Your dupe List is always very helpful. Thank you Christine.

Holy Moly – these are really good. Love the shade selection in this palette – the beautiful blue, green and gold, plus the great grey shade. Divine. And your eye look is gorgeous too Christine.
Well done Estee Lauder and Victoria Beckam.

I love Fired Sapphire, Burnished Sage and Grey Amber but would rather get the dupes, I already have the blue MUFE dupe. I’d rather save up for the Bijoux Royals palette, like Nancy T, Kjh, and Katherine T!

Very nice! Love the color scheme and pigmentation of the swatches. It kinda reminds me of my Viseart Bijoux palette. If it went on sale maybe,lol

Now this is an eyeshadow palette to get excited about! Such beautiful colours, and with A’s across the board to boot. I’m going to call my Estee Lauder connection today and have one put aside for me πŸ™‚

WHY DOES MY ORDER HAVE TO BE DELAYED, ESTEE LAUDER?!?! I just want my gorgeous eyeshadows in my grabby hands. They are so much more beautiful than I thought they would be.

I reaaaally enjoy the combo in this palette, but too bad we aren’t getting it here in my country. Or maybe that’s a good thing considering the price πŸ˜€
Anyway, I can at least use this palette as idea base to shop some much cheaper and equally good eyeshadows πŸ™‚
Thank you for the swatches!

Thank you for doing one of probably only two or at max three proper reviews with swatches and looks. The hype on this has been insane and so is the lack of real non PR information. Makes one suspicious even though they look fantastic. Waiting for one on the highlighter.
