So, I’m back after a really long break. I’ve been dealing with some issues in my life for the past couple of months and just didn’t feel excited about anything. But this collection hit all the right notes, and made me get really excited and interested in a LONG time !
So, this collection was a very anticipated and hot release this year. It features for different looks based on cities, and while I just couldn’t afford to buy everything from the collection, I do have two items and I’m mighty impressed with both.
The packaging is so luxe. They have a good heft to them, and are made of leather and metal. Along the lines of Tom Ford limited edition products, but in black. Just beautiful.
We all know what I picked up, take a wild guess, go on, I’ll wait.
Yes, a highlighter. I know, so unpredictable eh ? But hold on, this just night be one of the best, scratch that, THE best highlighter I’ve tried. And it’s been released before, and apparently Victoria Beckham pleaded with them to bring it back. Yup, it’s Modern Mercury (65$). It is the most gorgeous rosy champagne color I’ve ever seen. It looks like gloss on skin, in a very model like way. SO STUNNING ! If you buy one thing from this collection, make it this.
The other item I picked up was the VBxEsteeLauder eyeshadow palette (95$), it is glorious. It has colors for summer, spring, fall and winter. I mean, it is perfect for ALL year round ! They stay on beautifully on the eyes, and I can see myself using this everyday. It is quite an expensive investment, though worth it in my opinion.
Onto the swatches:
