I might get another back up of Modern Mercury, but nothing else appeals to me. Really love the brand aesthetic and the flatlay of the promo shots, though. The simple, well-edited placement appeals to me and if there were more of a warm color story, I’d be all over it. I remember the introduction of her collaboration with Estee Lauder and I was annoyed and thought it an eyeroll. Boy, was I wrong. I still don’t much care for Estee Lauder but I do like the Victoria Beckham collaboration(s). I hope she eventually launches her own independent line.

Emily Avatar

Apparently, Modern Mercury is being made permanent (in fact, WWD had an article a few weeks ago which strongly suggested that EL is fast tracking the VB collaboration to a permanent brand, a la Tom Ford.) Morning Aura Crème, Java Sun, Bitter Clove, the Noir/Vanille eye kajal, and a few others were also mentioned as permanent items. ‘Hero’ products, they called them. So I wouldn’t worry about backing up MM if you’re interested in anything else (VB or not)! It should be sticking around, quite rightly too!

I KNEW Modern Mercury would be back, so scored the CP dupe, so as not to be tempted. You guys know the drill from last year’s VB/EL: preorder, bec it is virtually gone! This is dangerous even to contemplate. And the curation is fabulous.

Katherine T. Avatar

Yeppp, this EL x VB collection is absolutely stunning and a total budget buster!! And it launches Sept 1, so will probably take up all of Sept’s beauty budget, and maybe October as well, then the holiday launches are right around the corner (eeeek!). My birthday is in Sept, so I will be rounding up all my existing gift cards and wheedling more out of others!

I can’t wait I already own two of her Modern Mercury highlighters & all of her single eye metal shadows from her last collection, the eye pencil, lip gloss and foils. I will definitely pick up her two new lip glosses Fired Crystal and Honey but that will probably be the only two items. Her cream blush reminds me a little of Tom Ford’s AW15 Runway Color which came out a couple of years ago. I liked it so much I have three so if it is very similar that will be a skip. I was hoping for a new Highlighter same formula but maybe a different shade.

aaaaa I ran to BG’s website to get that quad but as I was having a moment of buyer’s remorse BEFORE hitting purchase, I decided to go look through my makeup. I am fairly certain MAC Print will be a good dupe for the gray, Cranberry maybe for the eyes but also the burgundy in Viseart’s Bijou Royal was nice if not a bit more sheer (layer if so?) and either the whiteish shade from Viseart Paris Nude or Natasha Denona Sunset Palette or the 5 pan with the golds…I am interested to hear what your dupe list is if you buy this, but I think I just saved myself some $$$!

Emily Avatar

I have the quad and I honestly think it isn’t dupeable – perhaps color wise, you can find similar shades but the formula is fantastic. It has similarities to the Tom Ford Wet & Dry eyeshadow formula but is creamier and, imo, doesn’t need to be applied wet. It’s an absolutely stunning palette and I hesitated on it too – I am SO glad I bought it!

Emily Avatar

Oh my god, so jealous! Did you order it from Bergforf’s? Just realised we were talking about this year’s quad instead of last year’s palette (d’oh!) This year’s has that amazing gel-cream formula so I can’t wait to hear how you like it!!

I’m signed up for notifications on her website but so far, preordering hasn’t opened. I actually managed to order Blonde Mink on her website but turned out it was a “technical error” and they emailed me later cancelling the order. After confirmation. Lol, not cool!

Nicole Avatar

My order arrived yesterday! I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet but what I can say is – the packaging is consistent (black box with polka dots inside, heavy black fluting on the casing), the exterior of this year’s palette is more of a pebbled leather(ette?) instead of the fluting, the colors are GORGEOUS and I can’t wait to use them. I just checked BG’s site this morning to see how they were selling and nothing is listed now (I guess it was a very limited release). OMG I would have been so disappointed at thinking I got Blonde Mink early and then cancelled! I can’t wait for that to come out because I adore her other eye metals. <3

It is so past time for Victoria Beckham to excuse herself from the public scene. She’s been utterly irrelevant for two decades (and then only because of her husband in her post-Spice Girls days) and is on her way to becoming Kris Kardashian. EL seems to be constantly barking up the wrong tree with their celeb spokespeople.

kalliela Avatar

I gotta say though…a Spice Girls palette may get my interest a little, haha..if just for the silliness alone. I think they did have a perfume no? I don’t even remember but I think SG did have some kid of product they put out there lol…Marni Spice..wait that wasn’t it, hehe.

lisa Avatar

totally agree with you. None of the items are worth the prices being charged because of her name. I won’t spend a cent on any of them. I can’t stand makeup lines being backed by so called stars. Never buy any of them.

bibi Avatar

Hmmm…I think I’m going to have to disagree with VBeckham being irrelevant.
Ms Beckham has consistently curated her brand no matter what her endeavor be it makeup or fragrance. Always tasteful (without being boring), quality products no matter what the price range. (He inexpensive perfume line was amazing!) I’m not a big fan of power couples or people who are famuos for simply being famous but Ms Beckham seems as though she truly cares about her ‘brand’ and actively takes part in the development of products bearing her name. The same cannot be said for the Kardashians (ie Kim’s new contour kit is crap).
I think Ms Beckham & EL make a lovely pair. Ms Beckham certainly shares EL’s esthetic more than previous EL spokepersons (such as Kylie Jenner) while lending a more sophiscated & slightly edgy bent.
I’m too old to be a Spice Girls fan but applaud Ms Beckham’s efforts to reinvent herself as a style icon & (dare I say) ‘influencer.’ You can’t deny Ms Beckham definitely has style, taste, & talent looking at he collections.

Emily Avatar

That’s rather unfair to say. I don’t hear much about her husband to be honest but VB herself has gained serious recognition in the fashion industry. I think she started off hamstrung by the typical ‘celebrity tries out being a fashion designer (and fails)’ stereotype but she’s come a long way and I don’t think she was always given the benefit of the doubt. Like you, a lot of people didn’t take her seriously (or they still don’t).

I personally think she’s an extremely successful business-woman and a very hard worker. She has an unexpectedly down to earth personality in interviews and a cracking sense of humour. The Kardashian comparison is an unfair one. As for EL “barking up the wrong tree”, the profits speak otherwise as does “Stephane de la Faverie, global brand president of Estée Lauder, who said production will triple for the second collection.” (WWD)

Nicole Avatar

Oh wow thanks for posting this Christine! I’ve been waiting anxiously for September 1 but I didn’t realize there were some early releases on BG. I just went over and bought a few of the things I’m most interested in that have been pre-released. I’m glad I’ll be able to try some of it before the full release.

Nicole Avatar

I haven’t had a chance to play with them yet (they arrived yesterday) but I am very impressed with the packaging and how the products look visually. If the packaging and looks are anything to go by, they will be amazing like last year! 🙂

Brenda Avatar

I can no longer resist!!!!! I didn’t purchase anything from last year’s collection because of the price point. Since I’m being more selective on what I purchase I simply cannot not purchase modern mercury highlighter and the blonde gold eye foil.

Katherine T. Avatar

Oh I got Modern Mercury last year, beautiful! Have been eyeing that blond gold eye foil, let me know how how you like it , curious!

kalliela Avatar

I ain’t willing to drop that kinda money on make me those are ridiculously priced. Just me though. The only thing that looks appealing to me is that cobalt eye color…but not for that price! Lol

Nicole D Avatar

I resisted when VB x Estée Lauder first launched the Modern Mercury highlighter. But when they restocked it this spring in Canada, I bought it along with the Saffron Sun bronzer, as a birthday gift. The MM highlighter is simply gorgeous and impeccable. It’s the item that made me want to put a touch of highlighter on my face everyday.
Also, I was surprised by how good and natural the Saffron Sun bronzer looks on my fair, cool to neutral skin (more cool than neutral; NW 15-20). It blends so well and it takes my undertone. l love the quality and the classy look of the VB collections.

Tracey E. Avatar

I have mixed sentiments. I like how cohesive the ‘looks’ have been put together but the cost of some items is beyond what I care to pay unless I can find a discount. I have my eye on the grey/burgandy eyeshadow palette and the darkest lipstick. I’m going into this as though we are steps away from a VB permanent collection.

Emily Avatar

Yes. Modern Mercury is really ALL THAT. It has the most insane formula ever (in a good way – it’s soooo smooth and creamy). I swatched mine against the Moonlight duo from Tom Ford out of curiosity and MM has by far the more refined formula (and Moonlight is pretty awesome itself). Stunning rose gold colour.

Tl;dr: the hype is real.

Kira Avatar

I’m not really interested in this release, but just wanted to comment about that Aura gloss. The blurb says it is a “high-shine gloss, infused with gold pearl shimmer” that you can wear “as a glossy spotlight for . . bridge of nose” to help “blur the look of pores.” Hehehe. This sounds a bit silly, though I’m sure there’s some makeup artist out there who can put glossy sparkling goop on a nose bridge and convince me to give it a try.
