Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Limited Edition Modern Mercury Highlighter Review

If you know me, you know I have a slight obsession with Victoria Beckham. So when I found out that she was coming out with a makeup line last year in collaboration with Estee Lauder (Victoria's Signature Pieces), it was game over. I had my credit card in hand, ready to purchase, only to find out everything was sold out. Luckily, Estee Lauder restocked the entire collection earlier this year and was able to get my hands on the Modern Mercury Highlighter. Unfortunately, this item is currently out of stock, but there's a second release to this collection coming this fall, so lets hope there's also a restock of the "older" items!

According to their website, the VB highlighter in Modern Mercury is favorite of Victoria's. It is a "shimmering highlighter with a rose gold hue, that can be worn with or without bronzer, and as a strobing accent to enhance the cheekbones."

The Good:

  • Looks great on all skin tones
  • It's pigmented, smooth and buildable. You can achieve a glazed or natural look with this!

The Bad:

  • There is such a thing as applying "too much" with this product. Since it has a rose gold base, the more you apply, the more rosy and unnatural it can look on that section of your skin. I wouldn't recommend this to highlight your nose; it's great as a cheekbone highlight.
Final Verdict:

Overall, this product was great. It's different and not your typical white or gold-based highlighter, but that's what I love about it. As VB stated, you can really wear this without makeup for a true natural look as it gives your face a little lift because of its rosy undertones. However, good luck getting this product! This sold out in less than a day and who knows if she'll restock it. 

Will you be purchasing this item when it comes back in stock? What are your thoughts on it or VB's collection? Sound off in the comments below!
