MAKEUP | VICTORIA BECKHAM X ESTÉE LAUDER 01 JAVA SUN BRONZER REVIEW



After hitting the pan of my NARS Paloma bronzer (which I liked very much), I wanted to try something new. Preferably a bronzer with a super large pan for my TOM FORD bronzer brush to fit in. So as I was browsing through the different makeup brands at Magasin Du Nord (a.k.a my pied-à-terre), I stumbled upon the Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder collaboration display at the Estée Lauder counter. And needless to say I was immediately drawn by it, for two main reasons:

First - The collection simply looked very beautiful, elegant and coherent (I'm actually tempted to buy more from it).

Second - I'm such a huge fan of Victoria Beckham. She is so chic, modern and has incredible taste, so I knew this collaboration was going to be top notch. Not to mention she used to be a Spice Girl...Yes I'm a fan girl, what more can I say!

+ VICTORIA BECKHAM X ESTÉE LAUDER JAVA SUN BRONZER REVIEW +

+ The shade + 

The bronzer immediately attracted me because of it's medium brown warm color with a yellow undertone. This type of shade is personally very flattering to my skin tone (medium/tan). It also comes in a lighter shade (Saffron Sun) which I would recommend for lighter skin tones.
As for the pigmentation, it is very good and excellent at adding warmth to my complexion in a natural way.


+ The quality + 

The bronzer comes in a gorgeous leather and gold compact which looks and feels very luxurious. Applying it is super enjoyable as it's smooth and super silky. The matte texture makes it a good all-season bronzer.

I also like how natural looking it is while still giving me the polished look I'm always aiming for. I'm personally really not into the heavy contouring trend, but I can easily obtain a nice natural chiseled look without overdoing it with this one. The lasting power is also very long (roughly around 8 hours on my skin).


+ The price +  

This obviously retailed a bit expensive (456 DKK/65$). You are clearly going to pay for the celebrity name and the packaging on top of the product. However, the quality is definitely there, it lasts very long on the skin and you get so much product out of it. I don't think I'll be hitting the pan anytime soon with this one. If you are interested in purchasing it, you can find it at NET-A-PORTER.

My final thoughts? Well, you might find a cheaper and more suitable bronzer on the market. However, if you’re a makeup lover and a big fan of beautiful packaging just like me, I recommend getting this compact as a collector piece.

Thank you for reading my article, leave a comment bellow if you would like to share your opinion on this bronzer or this collaboration. Also do not hesitate to share your personal favorite bronzer with me!

MAKEUP | TOM FORD 01 MOODLIGHT HIGHLIGHTER REVIEW



This highlighting and illuminating powder duo is made to capture two types of natural light on the skin. The white shade replicates the luminous glow of daylight and the radiant golden shade captures the shine of candlelight. These shimmering shades can be applied individually or layered together to create a multidimensional glow.


+ TOM FORD MOODLIGHT SKIN ILLUMINATING POWDER DUO REVIEW + 

I tend to be quite selective when it comes to highlighters because I have oily skin and adding extra shimmer/glow to my face is rather delicate. However, that certainly never swooshed me away from wanting a gorgeous dewy glow. Fortunately for me, not only do I find these highlighters stunning, they also sit very well on my face.

+ The shades +

The lighter shade (daylight) alone is very subtle and faintly shows up on my medium/tan skin. The darker shade (candlelight) however (a metallic peach/rose gold) is a perfect match. The shades are great for an everyday look and can be build up for the night. I personally like to mix the two colors for an impeccable glow.


+ The quality + 

Silky and glides on very smoothly on my skin (I use my TOM FORD Shade & Illuminate Brush for application) and miracle…! It doesn’t emphasis my pores at all, even when I build it up!


+ The price + 

As usual the price point is quite high (525 DKK/80$) as expected from TOM FORD. However, the quality is unquestionably there (smooth, silky, doesn’t texturize your skin & gorgeous shades), you also get a lot of product and the packaging is neat and chic (the materialistic side of me always cared about packaging).

In conclusion, if you’re looking for an elegant, refined highlighter that also sits great on skin, then I would with no hesitation recommend TOM FORD’s Moodlight highlighting and illuminating powder duo.

I really fell in love with TOM FORD's makeup line and I will probably be purchasing more products and making reviews in the near future. I'm looking forward to make more beauty/makeup recommendations for you but also fashion trend reports and giving fashion advices! Thank you for reading my articles and supporting me, it honestly means the world to me.

FASHION | CITNP PARIS

I'm very pleased to announce that my friend Aurelien Violet recently launched his very own streetwear brand. A rather logical choice in design since he is the very talented photographer behind the street style blog Chic Is The New Punk. His photographs are a mix of street style and street shooting which with no doubt inspired his collection.

I like the simplicity of the line which makes it easy to combine with any eclectic piece or accessories. From Paris to Tokyo his designs have already gained popularity amongst his impressive circle of fashion enthusiasts friends.

+ The brand is available at Enchantée 14 rue Monsieur Le Prince 75006 in Paris and www.citnpparis.com +
