It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly, and the consistency was lightly creamy, emollient, and didn’t tug when applied. I didn’t feel like it slid around when I wore it, which made it last a bit better–almost four hours. It was lightly hydrating and had a vanilla scent to it with no taste (to me, at least). This shade had the level of translucency where just enough of the lip color will come through and alter how warm/cool/light/dark this shade looks based on one’s natural lip color.

It had rich color coverage that went on smoothly, but the consistency itself was unforgiving and emphasized the texture of my lips with some of the color gathering in lip lines (the brightness and depth of the color made it harder to notice, at least). It felt more velvety and didn’t tug going on, but it just didn’t sit as well as on the lips overall. This shade wore well for over six hours but was a bit drying after four hours of wear. The formula was vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste. Because it’s imperfect, I think that the $45 price tag is hard to swallow, and the color itself (even the finish) is incredibly dupable–even within Estee Lauder’s permanent range.

MOROCCAN HEAT

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Moroccan Heat Lip Gloss ($36.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, peachy orange with warm, yellowy undertones and a cream finish.

I found the gloss to be one of the more disappointing and lackluster (there’s a pun there, I know it!) products in the collection; it is such a weak gloss formula with the type of packaging that I know many are not enamored of, and there’s a pitiful amount of it in the container. It is strange to me that there is not even a noticeable amount of sparkle/shimmer in it to work as a layering product over the two lipsticks. It was moderately tacky, thin, difficult to spread across the lips, and then it welled into lip lines and looked a bit streaky and uneven on the lips to boot! Another thing that struck me as odd was that it is fig-scented, which is the old school Estee Lauder lip product smell, when they’ve been moving to vanilla scents (true in the Pure Color Envy line, and also true in the lipsticks from this same collection). The best part about the gloss was that it lasted for four hours on me and wasn’t drying.

Yeah, during the sneak peek, I thought the Moroccan Heat gloss looked horrible (adds a million lip lines) and very dupe-able, definitely not worth $36. Brazilian Nude looks like a very Victoria Beckham lip color, thank goodness I have dupes. Will need to save all my pennies for that Modern Mercury highlighter

I actually like the Brazilian Nude lippie and I’m happy I got it. I’m pretty sure I have oodles of similar shades, but I’m a collector and you know how that story goes.
So far I passed on the Chiliean Sunset & gloss but I may cave in later.

None of these are knocking my socks off. Nope. And the prices for less than Lux quality are obscene!
Eh, that’s ok. I have my trusty tube of MAC Lady Danger, my Fashion Whim Cremesheen, and several nude lipsticks that actually work on me, ie; UD Liar, MAC Marques and Strip Me Down. So I’m good!

Maybe I’ll try bareMinerals Honeybun or Maybelline Touchable Taupe for the Brazilian Nude. $45.00 for mediocre lippies, I don’t think so. Even for very good ones, it would have to be a stretch.

Just FYI. Have and like touchable taupe, but it runs a lot cooler on me, due to ? Cooler lips. It’s def in the fam, but I store it with my greiges. Pulls much more gray on me than on C.

Christine, your eye look is dazzling! I am so excited to get that shadow palette…

I was tempted to order the Brazilian Nude lipstick as well but I’m glad now that I didn’t. It just looks ordinary.

Excuse me, but this end of the collection is bringing out my snarky side. Coming soon to a CCO near you! And with the markdown, the lippies will look better.

Hello Christine, are you going to review the lip pencil and list dupes for it? I can afford only 1 lip product and I think I’ll choose the nude lipstick, so I need a dupe for the pencil.

Well I don’t know if you’re aware yet, but they are launching round II of the collection again. I don’t know if all the pieces are going to be available or not but some of it is up for presale on the Victoria Beckham website! I just ordered the Modern Mercury. One of my favorite pieces from this collection was the lip liner. It is awesome, very creamy and pairs well with the nude lipstick.
