Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Collection

With exclusive early access to the Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham collaboration, we’ve partnered with Bergdorf Goodman to bring you photos and swatches of several products from the recent launch.  The collection has been moving quickly, but the following pieces are still available:  Eye Palette, Charred Emerald Eye Metal Eyeshadow (mine arrives tomorrow), Java Sun Bronzer, Moroccan Heat Lip Gloss, and Chilean Sunset Lipstick.

Did you haul anything from the collection?

P.S. — I posted the look I’m wearing throughout the swatches here 🙂

The eyeshadows look gorgeous! I bought 2 Modern Mercury (1 for me, 1 for a gift). Also bought the eye foils but am unsure if I’ll keep them.

Well deserved sponsorship, Christine.

That’s great news re: your order. Mine went from ‘processing’ to ‘warehouse’ and shipping now listed as ‘overnight’. PayPal still pending: will keep an eye on that.

Hi Scarlett, I have the eye foils and would prefer the eyeshadow palette instead. I’d rather sell my burnt anise to you vs. returning it. If you’d like to connect, please let Christine know.

I got the Modern Mercury highlighter rather than the bronzer and I’m glad as the bronzer would be too warm for me. I love the eyeshadows but the highlighter’s expensive enough ?!

Katherine T. Avatar

I dunno about that eye foil and that lip gloss ( both look really watery and streaky), but everything else looks like a hit! The price on that shadow palette is ouchie, but the shadows look stunning and high quality, esp. Burnished Sage. And I really like that hint of rose and pink in that Modern Mercury highlighter, I can see why that’s a hot item. That Black Myrhh Eye Ink reminds me of City Colors Shimmer Shadow in Black Widow. All in all, very impressive. Victoria Beckham strikes me as a woman who has high standards, so I wouldn’t be surprised if these rated really well.

Nicole Avatar

I know I won’t personally be buying the palette (even if I wanted to, I never catch these ‘likely to sell out’ things fast enough), but oh wow is that Burnished Sage color gorgeous! I also love the Grey Amber shade and Black Myrrh single. Chilean Sunset is really pretty too.

I can’t tell from what you said earlier, are you going to do full reviews of this collection or just swatches since it seems to be selling quickly?

Mostly I’m just asking because I’d like to know what dupes you list for the bronzer (it looks like it could just be a nice neutral blush on me) and highlighter!

Chloe Avatar

Are these eyeshadows like the regular Estee Lauder shadows in consistency? I hope these are better, as I have found them to look great in the palette and awful on my eyes. I am interested in this palette, but only if the eyeshadows are better than the Lauder norm.

A lot of items are still in stock on if you’re willing to pay an arm and a leg for shipping from the UK. Which is exactly what I did to get the Mercury highlighter after I found it was sold out on Estee Lauder’s website AFTER i placed my order with it in my cart… It arrived today, while I just got notification that my order from Estee Lauder for the bronzer was shipped. I’m going to have to call them though because my shipping invoice still included the highlighter, and my card was charged the same day I made my purchase.

Mo Avatar

They look so gorgeous! Can’t wait for your review. I’m another one who ordered on and got the “back order” message. Part of my order now seems to be “processing,” but part of it is still “backordered,” so fingers crossed! (Lauder really needed to make more of this collection.)

Mimsie Avatar

If anyone is in the UK it looks like Selfridges online still has everything available (at this time of writing, I just snagged the highlighter, which some ebay vultures have already posted for £70)

J Avatar

Swatches look great! I wish they had sponsored this review a long time ago before the collection launch…I was trying to resist the eye palette but I may have get it now (if I can)!

Hildegard Avatar

I have to say that, as a Chilean national, I’m very amused by that lipstick’s name. I wonder what the thought process was. I’m not complaining, though. It’s a gorgeous shade of red and I’d love to wear it, but something tells me this collection won’t be available here.

Maggie Avatar

This collection is lovely AND ridiculous to get. Still waiting for my order from Bergdorfs even though my card was charged for it on the 13th. Called them today and they said it was a much bigger success than they expected and are working diligently to get all orders out as fast as they can and that my order was upgraded to free overnight as soon as it was ready to go. I just hope I get the items. As most are all sold out now on Bergdorfs and Estee website.

Rebecca Avatar

Got the highlighter and the shadow palette. Received an email Saying it was back ordered then a few hours later saying it was packaged and being over nighted with UPS! Can’t wait to try them. May buy another palette just to have when its back in stock ?

LaMaitresse Avatar

Wow! I’m impressed, that’s a top notch collection. I’m trying to cut back, but hmmm the eye shadow palette is really stunning and the swatches look superb, definitely not what I’d expect from Estée Lauder!

Victoria Avatar

I ordered through Bergdorf’s right when it went live and just received today. I can say the modern mercury highlight was better than I expected but also a little on the “pinker” side than expected. Regardless still gorgeous! I want to get the eyeshadow palette as well but the price! My wallet is telling me no! Lol

Trish Avatar

This is such a fabulous collection. My Modern Muse arrived last week and today the Burnt Anise and Black Myrrh arrived via Fed Ex!
The Burnt Anise is so pretty- sheer but glistening and that Black Myrrh…. Oh my, my !!!
Everything from BG seems to be coming in piece by piece- odd to me why it isn’t available to be shipped all at once.
I think this collection will be a smashing success and there will be plenty to go around.
I want to see a complete eye look please Christine- no one does them better than you!

Betty Avatar

I like the looks of Modern Mercury (such a different tone of highlighter, ethereal) and Black Myrhh. The lipsticks do nothing for me, I don’t use such colourful eye shadows but I can certainly see the appeal for those who do.

Beth Avatar

We had a baby on the 12th and named him Beckham….that being said I placed three seperate orders via BG, EL and Selfridges to acquire the morning aura, bronzer, highlighter, nude lipstick and eye kohl. Modern day baby book? The packaging will be kept forever as a keepsake. Xo

Linda Avatar

Just ordered the highlighter from Saks. “Will be received no later than 10/21.” I just have this gut feeling that that will round out and finish off dialing in my stash. Here’s hoping.

The whole collection blows my mind. I love it. That bronzer is to die for, but not going to swing that right now. Oh, and that Brazilian Nude lippie! LOVE.
