Victoria Beckham just launched her own makeup line and I'm obsessed
When you compare the 1990s version of Victoria Beckham to today’s, it’s hard to believe this is the same person. The mid-1990s “Spice Girl” is all but a mere memory, and although I wasn’t a fan of this phase (despite countless intoxicated Tell me what you want, what you really, really wants in the years since), VB has definitely become one of my top-five girl crushes. Her style, her success as a fashion designer and the fact that she gets to sleep with David Beckham every night (when they’re not trotting around the globe for their solo careers) are reason enough to justify my use of #goals.
When VB dropped her first makeup collaboration with Estée Lauder in 2016, I snatched up a nude lip gloss and sparkly eye gloss that remain in my collection to this day. Her sophomore collection didn’t wow me as much (TBH), but I was giddy with excitement when I learned she was branching out and creating a line of her own—and the first drop of her first eponymous (and “clean”) brand became available this week.
Beyond aspiring to be VB herself, I also aspire to be that woman who can rock a smoky eye on the regular. As to be expected, Victoria Beckham Beauty’s initial foray into the makeup world is eye-heavy (with offerings for lips and skin promised to come soon). I literally can’t stop thinking about the Smoky Eye Brick in “Tuxedo.” Featuring the ideal shades for a modern yet sophisticated look (and I do mean “look” because achieving the desired end-result takes a bit of effort), this swanky compact was designed to give you all the shadows you need for a chic, sultry eye while keeping excess packaging elements to a minimum. (VB is eco-conscious, too!)
In my alternate life, I would get a lot of use out of the crystal-infused Lid Lustres as well. I immediately gravitated toward the gold-toned “Blonde” hue, but again, the shimmery taupe “Mink” and brilliant blue “Midnight” are equally as alluring. Rounding out the initial offerings is the blendable yet waterproof Satin Kajal Liner, which is on my list to try when I need a new black eyeliner. (The “Bronze” and “Bordeaux” shades are beyond gorg, but not necessarily the best fit for my lifestyle.)
So now I’m lusting after Victoria Beckham’s makeup—in addition to her fashion designs (which unfortunately aren’t the most practical for my personal day-to-day life). But it’s all about women supporting women (even if you’re bordering on being obsessed with any said woman), and I can’t wait to get a new piece of VB in my makeup drawer.
