Am I Posh Spice yet?

Is it just us, or do you additionally ask your self What Would Victoria Beckham do at the onset of any life debacle? (Or, at the very least, any style or beauty debacle.) It's no secret we're fairly rattling smitten with Posh, and we take rabid notice of each move she makes inside the type, make-up, and skincare realm. Thus, you'll be able to only imagine our squeals of glee once we heard via the grapevine earlier this yr that VB was plotting and creating her very personal beauty line—full with shadows, liners, and sparkling, actual crystal-studded lid lusters. Thrilled is the phrase we're in search of here. Then, so as to add to the fervor of Victoria Beckham Beauty's preliminary drop, just some weeks in the past the model launched two further formulation to her highly-coveted product roster—a deliciously creamy lip pencil and a whipped, feather-light lip tint referred to as Bisou that is principally you are everyday antidote to the question; what ought to I wear on my lips in the present day? In addition to launching really superb makeup products formulaically, stated products are additionally gorgeously packaged—critically, so elegant and luxurious. And, await it, they're cleanly formulated, sustainably made and packaged, created by ladies, and cruelty-free. Thus, I took it upon myself to attempt every single product and hue to see if they might reside as much as my *very* excessive expectations. Under, I'm highlighting each of the five products and rating them by which I feel you must splurge on first. Hold scrolling! 

I can rely on one (nicely, now two!) fingers the number of lip pencils I am going to personally vouch for as a beauty editor and product hoarder. Up till I tried this new, creamy and clean-formulated choice from VB's magnificence line, Charlotte Tilbury's aptly iconic pencil was my number one. However now, I find myself reaching for this luxurious debut as an alternative. The place to start out—in addition to being deliciously clean—an absolute must for lip pencils—it is also waterproof, ultra-precise, vegan, dermatologically-tested, and utterly feather-proof. Also, I have to provide a nod to the shades—they're lovely. No. 03—a reasonably, pink mauve has taken the lead as my favorite as I've found it's a near match to my actual lip tone. The Lip Definer is an on a regular basis staple, which is why I advocate you snap it up first. 

A mild pale peach that's great for truthful to mild lip tones.

The final neutral, the brand describes No. 2 as a impartial beige brown for mild to medium lip tones.

A hanging rose-tinged brown for medium lip tones.

A wealthy, tone of carmel that is particularly beautiful for these with tan or deep pure lip shade. 

A shade the brand dubs "Chestnut"—a luxe choice for deep to wealthy lip tones.

Meet Bisou, a stunning, just-bitten lip tint that's principally all I've been sporting each since I sunk my tooth into it. Fact be advised, this doe-footed little beauty is actually my favorite VB Beauty product, however I do assume the lip definer really takes the general impact to the subsequent degree so I included it first as I really feel it's really a vital accent to the lip tint. Plus, I additionally discovered this components a tad drying (although other editors I've consulted disagree!) which I can not lie, knocked a number of factors off the last word leaderboard.  But, again to why I adore it and assume you should purchase it. First off, the texture is addicting and in contrast to another lip product I've swiped. It's mild as a feather, whipped, and gel-like whereas nonetheless delivering a juicy punch of shade. It is exactly the type of drama I am craving right now in anticipation of the moodier winter months approaching. Truthful warning, it seems to be really dark when you first dab it on, however it has a tremendous approach of adapting and melting into your pure lip colour. My fellow magnificence editor Courtney Higgs and I've very totally different natural lip tones, and we have been both impressed. The components itself can also be features strategic ingredient additions like hyaluronic acid and squalane to visually plump and iron out any strains or wrinkles. In the event you crave a plump, low-maintenance, just-blotted lip vibe, you want the Bitten Lip Tint in your everyday makeup wardrobe. 

You guys, let me inform you that I take my eyeliner VERY significantly and have been in a monogamous relationship with my jet black be-all-end-all Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner for years. And, regardless of, what different liners and formulas I attempt, I've remained stubbornly loyal. Perhaps it is the Taurus in me? Anyway, that's all come to a screeching halt because I am hopelessly obsessed with VB's creamy, chamomile, panthenol, and vitamin-enriched kajal—this poisonously fairly shade of Bordeaux, particularly. Regardless of how glide-friendly and straightforward to use the matte-satin formulation is, it's waterproof, stays true to paint regardless of how long you put on it, and does not trigger my eyes to water. (It's dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, protected for contact lens wearers, and gluten-free as well.) In the event you anticipate quite a bit from your eyeliner—durable wear, wealthy pigment, and a creamy, no-tug software—this is likely one of the greatest. 

For that basic matte, black liner look. 

A shimmering gilded shade of bronze that drips with metallic, vacation attraction. 

I'm a glitter gal by way of and through, so you possibly can think about my excitement in response to those crystal-studded lid lusters. Each of the 4 shades is, actually, enriched with a special crystal for what the model calls "aura-amplifying power." I do not find out about all that, but I do know I used to be impressed with these fairly little pots, the most versatile, for me, being the lightest shade referred to as Blonde which is described as a pale crème with yellow gold pearl and an infusion of Citrine. With only a quick dab on my inside corners and on the ball of my eyelid, any shadow is immediately elevated into a glimmering eye look worthy of tons and plenty of compliments. They're additionally buildable and there is no fallout over the course of the day or night time—I've worn the formulation upward of 12 hours and not one flake of crystal has budged. The method is 60% pearlescent pigment which explains why the impact is so damn disco-pretty. For many who want to experiment with a glittery eye this season with minimum maintenance and easy software, these lid lusters are an essential accent.

According to the brand, onyx is deep black accented by silver pearl and infused with Black Obsidian. (Thought-about to create a protecting aura to help defend towards negativity.)

Dusted with Tigers Eye—a gemstone typically correlated with courage, power, and personal power, this chocolate shade of taupe glimmers with hints of gold and silver pearl. 

For those who need to branch out from neutrals, this navy hue entitled Midnight options silver pearl and can also be infused with Amethyst to amplify the movement of prosperity and abundance.

Truthfully, the truth that these four-colored shadow bricks are available final is nothing personal, I am simply not a huge eyeshadow individual! And once I do reach for eyeshadow, it's virtually all the time a liquid or cream. So, you'll be able to see that the powder finish of those was working towards them. That stated, I do assume the packaging is so chic and lovely, the colour variations pretty, and the shadows themselves satisfyingly saturated in pigment, creamy, and surprisingly straightforward to blend. I truly was in a position to use simply my finger! That stated, I want there was some variation in finish since they're all matte. Nevertheless, for those of you who love an incredible matte shadow in a mix of each wearable and more dramatic colors, I feel you will love these. My favorite has been the Signature palette, simply because it is the most neutral and flub-free for my quick to wreck fingers. (I'm critically horrible at making use of powder eyeshadow, guys.) This eyeshadow is the top-of-the-line matte formulation I've ever tried because of how beautiful the pigment is and how straightforward and mistake-free it is to apply. Plus, you possibly can't ignore how fairly the petite tortoiseshell compact is. 

A cool, neutral shadow spectrum spanning charcoal to ivory. 

Like blue velvet in shadow type, this brick has every thing from probably the most sensible of cerulean cobalt to a creamsicle-y off white. And, of course, shades like denim in between. 

On the warmer, not-too-pink aspect of the neutrals is Tweed—a vibrant span of terracotta, plum, even a fiery, Spanish pink. Up subsequent, Victoria Beckham is Obsessive about This Exotic, Organic Body Oily, So I Tried It
