Victoria Beckham Attends her Beauty Launch In Dublin – VB x Estée Lauder

Fashion and beauty mogul, Victoria Beckham, launched her new beauty line in Brown Thomas Grafton Street, Dublin on Wednesday the 4th of October. This makeup collection is her second with the french makeup brand, Estée Lauder. This time she has kept ten products from the previous collection and introduced eighteen new ones, including a limited edition set.

The makeup range is priced towards the luxury end of the scale. Items include all types of products except foundation. Beckham has created a series of six complete looks entitled; the signature look, the New York look, the Paris look, the London look, the LA look and Miami look.

The product I’m most excited to try is the eye foil. Firstly, it is not terribly expensive at €34, compared to €72 for an eye shadow quad. The eye foil looks like you could use it in multiple ways, as an eyeshadow or as a face and body highlighter. The least expensive item in the collection is their lip pencil at €27, which is still not that affordable. But for makeup addicts and/or lovers of Victoria Beckham, many will buy a product just to say they have one.

Beckham has been seen recently wearing this season’s hottest trend; colour blocking. At the launch, we saw her continue this trend by wearing a long scarlet red dress with ruffles, accompanied by an open back. The dress was from her own autumn winter 2017 clothing collection, ‘Victoria Beckham’.  She teamed the ensemble with a pair of  high black boots. Simple and elegant, yet very Victoria Beckham!

Bloggers, snapchatters, press and fans all attended the event with huge excitement and anticipation. Beckham documented her travel journey and arrival via instagram stories and twitter. The star travelled in style, no comfy clothes for her, as she wore her outfit while on the plane. After the event, she tweeted ‘Thank u Dublin!! Such a warm welcome!’

Beckham’s clothing line is also available from Brown Thomas. Her latest makeup collection is available on the Brown Thomas Website and in store with prices ranging from €27 to €650 (for the makeup pouch).
