Victoria Beckham Beauty is a brand I’ve heard so much about, but I hadn’t tried myself until recently. I ordered two shades of the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadows alongside the new Victoria Beckham Beauty Matte Bronzing Brick, and it was the Matte Bronzing Brick which inspired the order.
I can’t recall ever watching or reading a negative review about any of the Victoria Beckham Beauty products, but the products really are pricey compared to other high-end beauty brands.
The products are stocked on Cult Beauty as well as their website, but they’re almost permanently sold out and are out of stock, so if you can’t ever find their products available on Cult Beauty, try the Victoria Beckham Beauty website, as they have better stock.
“Lid Lustre adds a layer of life, dimension, and brilliance to your look. Inspired by the healing and protective power of crystals—Victoria surrounds herself with them—each shade is infused with a different crystal for aura-amplifying energy.
Striking shades in a wet, pearly finish are tailor-made for buildable, high-shine brilliance. Luxury performance, clean beauty.“
The Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadow is said to feature unique soft press powder technology, and the formula contains over 60% pearlescent pigments.
Due to the delicate nature of this formula, Victoria Beckham Beauty recommend keeping the disc provided on top of the product to protect in between uses, and it’s similar to the little lid you get with the L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadows, to keep the product protected at all times.
The Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadows are £30 each, and they each contain 5g of product within a black, weighty glass jar. The lid has a subtle tortoiseshell effect to it, and it looks so sleek and luxe.
I know £30 is expensive for one eyeshadow, but 5g / 0.17 oz of product for an eyeshadow is genuinely massive. To give you a comparison, a full sized MAC eyeshadow is 1.5g and is £16, so whilst the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadow is almost double the price, you’re also getting 3.5g more product which is crazy.
There are currently six different shades to choose from for the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadows, and I chose Mink as one of the two shades I wanted to try first.
Mink is described by the brand as being a taupe brown with a mix of gold and silver pearl and infused with Tigers Eye which is known as the gemstone of courage, strength and personal power.
I cannot even explain how absolutely gorgeous Mink is, and whilst it does look stunning in my swatch above, it’s even more incredible in real life.
The formula is really quite unique, in that it’s a powder, but it feels almost like a gel, or it has a cream base as it smooths over the eyelids effortlessly like a cream, but the shimmer pigments distribute perfectly and evenly in just one swipe.
You can use an eyeshadow brush or your fingertips, as the formula works well with both methods of application, but I personally love using my fingertip as it somehow manages to intensify the shimmer and sparkle.
Mink looked more brown on the website, but it’s a very cool toned taupe which borders on grey with a brown base. It’s so beautiful, and it might sound like a ridiculous description, but it looks fancy on the eyes.
It looks like a luxury eyeshadow, and I can absolutely see why there’s over 800 five-star reviews on the Victoria Beckham Beauty website. I really need to add the other shades to my collection, as the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadow in Mink is one of the prettiest eyeshadows I’ve tried in a long time.
