First look: Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham makeup

September sees the launch of Victoria Beckham’s very first makeup collection! As announced earlier this year, the house of Estée Lauder has partnered with the famous style icon for a limited edition color cosmetics collection, which represents Victoria’s first-ever makeup launch. In 2014, Victoria Beckham collaborated with Nails Inc. on a limited edition nail polish duo, and now she’s set to unveil a full makeup range that launches in the United States and United Kingdom on September 13th, 2016.

As Victoria Beckham explained, her latest venture is the fulfillment of one of her long – held dream – creating a personal makeup collection that works on a variety of ages and skin tones. At the same time, the collection is aimed at complementing her fashion collection. Estée Lauder is also the beauty sponsor of Beckham’s spring 2017 runway, so guests at the designer’s New York show on September 11th will be the first to see the products in action, as models will be wearing them on the catwalk.

I was very specific about what I wanted. It was about the must-have items that I felt everybody should have in their makeup bag, things that are really quite difficult to find because I know, I’ve searched

Victoria Beckham

Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham collection includes 15 stock-keeping units, including a portable light box. In the spirit of Estée Lauder’s latest product innovations, the formulas are multi-tasking. For example, a cream highlighter also moisturizes and tightens the skin.

As Beckham explained in a recent interview with Vogue, she changes her looks depending on where she is in the world and how she’s dressing.  With this in mind, helping to ensure a foolproof application, Beckham has brought together groupings of up to eight products representing the four cities that resonate with her: London, Los Angeles, New York, and Paris. The conveniently sized products can easily fit into the Victoria Beckham light box that includes a removable lighted mirror and different 8 products. The Los Angeles set is youthful and fresh, London conveys more edgy, rock ‘n roll vibe, New York is said to be bold and colorful, while Paris is sophisticated.

For your makeup to glide on like a dream, you either have the smoothest skin to begin with. Or you fake it. For the latter scenario, there’s the Estée Lauder Crescent White Brightening Makeup Base SPF30/PA+++. It has lavender pigments to tone down skin dullness, sallowness and dark spots. And since we all know how dry, flaky skin can make even the best foundation streak, this makeup base is also all about keeping up the moisture levels for hours. This same devotion to keeping your skin well-hydrated is present, too, in the brand’s Crescent White Hydra-Bright Essence Makeup SPF30/PA++. It plumps up skin, balances oil levels, and blurs the appearance of fine lines, pores, dark spots and uneven tone. Smart makeup? Definitely on my yes list to work with.

Estee Lauder Introduces Double Wear Cushion BB All Day Wear Liquid Compact SPF 50 / PA +++

Estee Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB All Day Wear Liquid Compact SPF 50 PA +++

Makeup pioneer Estée Lauder has recently introduced what will become every woman’s must-have in their makeup bag and that is the brand new Double Wear Cushion BB All Day Wear Liquid Compact SPF 50 / PA+++. Their new cushion makeup promises to give smooth and natural coverage that has lasting effect thatnks to the power of Double Wear.

 

We know and love the original Double Wear Stay-In-Place liquid foundation for its matte finish that ensures unsightly mid-day shine doesn’t stand a chance, but note that the Double Wear BB Cushion variation is decidedly more dewy. The skincare ingredients in the formula work to leave a hydrated, glowing-from-within finish that will make you look perpetually fresh-faced; silk powder and the brand’s pigment technology prime the skin for an even finish, Always.

EstéeLauderDoubleWearCushionBBAllDayWearLiquidCompact

This cushion foundation is light and can do so much more than just give you all day coverage. The Estée Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB All Day Wear Liquid Compact SPF 50 / PA +++ primes and also moisturizes the skin thanks to its specialised blend of skincare ingredients. It also gives the skin a dewy glow while controlling oil and shine, therefore leaving your skin looking natural and radiant. The cushion foundation will feel like a second skin thanks to its lightness and its extremely buildable, giving you the coverage of your choice and power to minimise pores, fine lines and imperfections. The skin will look flawless and colour will last for up to eight hours, making touchups a thing of the past!

If you’re worried that the lighter coverage won’t do enough to keep the dreaded oil slicks from appearing on your face, rest assured that this cushion fights sebum the all-natural way: with cold water kelp extract, to help balance the skin’s natural oil production and ensure they don’t go into overdrive. Bonus: SPF50/PA+++ protection, which makes this pretty much a ‘summer’ weather necessity.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB All Day Wear Liquid Compact SPF50/PA+++, is retailing at $68 and refils are availble at $52

Get Ready For The Victoria Beckham MakeUp Collection

 

VICTORIA-BECKHAM-PHOTO_CREDIT_-_Solve_Sundsbo_-_EXPIRY_-_Dec31_2016.jpg

The Posh Spice fans in us rejoiced over the weekend at the news that the eternally chic Victoria Beckham will be teaming up with Estée Lauder to come up with a limited edition makeup collection for Fall 2016. We’ve gotten bits of VB-stamped beauty before in a Very Victoria Lipstick as wel as a two-piece nail polish collection before, but this will be the first time that she’s done a full-fledged makeup collection – hence our giddy excitement.

Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder

 

No details on the actual products and the look and feel of the collection as of yet; all we know right now is that it will hit stores and the Estée Lauder and Victoria Beckham official websites in September this year. But if we had to make a guess and squint very closely at the behind-the-scenes image released by Estée Lauder above, we predict Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder will look like lots of muted colours: probably an eyeshadow palette, contouring palette, lipsticks in varying shades of neutrals, and possibly an eyeliner and mascara.

Watch this space: We’ll be sure to reveal the collection specifics as soon as they’re announced.

The Noses: Elie Roger and Estee Lauder ‘Knowing’

For many years in her life, my sister used Estée Lauder’s White Linen, created by the legendary Sophia Grojsman for Estée Lauder in 1978, and: Knowing

But who was the perfumer behind Estée Lauder’s Knowing, a chypre of roses tangled up with dark moss? For many years, Lauder, like many other companies, didn’t put the perfumers into the limelight, and this is why Elie Roger’s name is not often linked with Knowing if you search for the information online. Roger worked for the fragrance house of Firmenich, and he signed both Knowing (1988) and Clinique Wrappings (1990). While his portfolio wasn’t as extensive as that of some other perfumers, he had a distinctive style, and both Knowing and Wrappings remain beloved classics.

Estee Lauder ‘Knowing’ Eau de Parfum in it’s legendary beautiful bottle (Click photo to enlarge)

A real beautiful creation. The top notes begin with the floral freshness of mimoza, pittosporum, sweet rose and tuberose, combined with sparkling fruty notes of plum and melon. There are floral notes mingling with a sweet woodsy note of patchouli and iris and spicy clove and laurel. The chypre base includes precious woods (sandalwood), vetiver, patchouli, oakmoss and civet. Knowing is a warm and elegant woodsy scent for a sophisticated and self-confident woman.

Elie Roger passed away on Nov. 19, 2010, five years ago, after a long career, which started in 1946 in Grasse, France, his hometown. He worked for 20 years at Firmenich, both in New York and Paris, and he received the American Society of Perfumers’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. Since he crafted two American classics as well as some other interesting fragrances, it’s well-deserved recognition.
