My Choices from the Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder 2017 Collection + A New Lightweight Foundation Discovery

My selections from the *Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder 2017 Collection
The *Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder 2017 Collection (also available at Estee LauderNeiman MarcusNet-A-Porter and Sephora) possesses a wealth of opulent offerings and this post is dedicated to my choices from the LE range; timeless and luxe, the shades are versatile and the formulas are high-performance, making this collection one not to miss. 

Consequently, here are are my favorites for face, eyes and lips as well as a new foundation discovery

 Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Face.
// FACE //
  • *Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Morning Aura Illuminating Cream: A key staple in the collection, this incandescent cream acts as moisturizer, primer, highlighter and mid-day refresher. It's an absolute must for skin that appears rested, youthful and rejuvenated...my mom and I both adore it. 
  • *Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Bronzer in Java Sun: A resplendent true brown tan, this practically matte bronzer lends enviable warmth and dimension to the skin while still remaining completely effortless. 
  • *Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Aura Gloss in Honey Shine: I initially purchased this single item while in London last month and am still smitten with its balm-gel texture and multi-tasking nature; when placed on the high points of the face, it acts as a dewy, exquisitely natural-looking highlighter but it also is moisturizing enough to bathe lips in hydration. The tender gold tone is soft and super pretty...trust me on this one!

*Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation
Finally, the *Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is my latest base discovery. Fragrance-free and practically weightless, this sheer foundation features light coverage (buildable to medium) and an inconspicuous, true skin finish that--in true Double Wear spirit--lasts the day.  This formula is excellent for anyone seeking even and fresh-faced skin that looks balanced, supple and entirely natural.

Official details, courtesy of Nordstrom:

What it is: A fluid, long-wear makeup that feels like you have nothing on.

Who it's for: Anyone who wants light-to-medium coverage with a satin finish.

What it does: It moves comfortably on your skin and looks fresh, natural, healthy and even-toned. With SPF 30 and antioxidants, it's your invisible defense against environmental damage from UV rays and pollution. It instantly and continuously hydrates with a moisture complex of red fruit extracts, including watermelon, lychee seed and apple.

How to use: Shake well. For best results, do not pour makeup. Instead cover the opening with your finger and carefully flip the bottle upside down. This will give you enough foundation for light-to-medium coverage. Repeat for more coverage.

  1. Ooooh! That VB scarf is super pretty! The Morning Aura and Honey Shine are calling my name! And as a lover of all things light in foundations, the Double Wear Nude Water foundation is definitely intriguing. Thank you, gorgeous Rachel, beautiful as always.
