BEAUTY & SHOPPING
We were big fans of the first Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder makeup collection which came out last year and was a sell-out success (particularly the Morning Aura illuminator, see our post here). Combining both sleek design and high quality products, they weren’t the cheapest but we did think they were worth the splurge. Her second, follow-up collection is launching 1st September and you can already get a sneak preview on her site here. As well as the basics found in her ‘Signature Look’, you’ll also find the collection divided into looks inspired by her favourite cities including London and Miami plus two limited edition kits. Beckham herself has picked out both the Eye Ink Mascara in Blackest (£36) and the Skin Perfecting Powder (£62) as her top buys but you’ll need to be quick off the mark buying the products as they do sell out quickly (you can get them online at Beckham’s website here or at Selfridges).
Also launching this month on 5th September is Claudia Schiffer’s first makeup line in collaboration with German brand, Art Deco cosmetics. The line will feature Schiffer’s ‘cloud’ logo on pale pink packaging and include a full range of lipsticks, nail varnishes, blushers, eyeshadows, mascara and foundations. Prices haven’t been revealed yet but Art Deco is renowned for selling good quality products for both home and professional use at reasonable prices and the collection has already been given a big thumbs up by top makeup artist Lisa Eldridge.
