Loved the first collection? VB x Estée 2.0 is even better
Beauty addicts, prepare to weep with joy as the latest Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder collection is here. It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since two of the biggest names in the fashion and beauty worlds respectively first collaborated, but the second drop is here. And boy, is it good.
This season the beauty spotlight is very much on steely tones and shiny, shiny metallics, which is reflected in the new collection. The products are inspired by the fashion mogul's favourite cities as well as VB's signature look, focusing on a flawless face that's always camera-ready.
Choosing our favourites from the new releases was no easy task, but we've managed to whittle the long list down to the three key pieces you need to snap up before they're gone. VB x Estée Lauder round two is available exclusively at Selfridges.
Who doesn't love an eye quad? Nobody in the beauty world, that's for sure. So it should come as no surprise that it's our Beauty Writer's favourite piece from the whole drop. Compact and featuring four sultry shades in matte, shimmer and everything in between, it's your perfect companion for an evening out.
Glossy lids have been huge this year, with non-gloopy formulas proving you can get that high-shine dew of dreams without having to use highlighter or tons of primer to keep it from sliding into your eyes.
'The Aura Gloss in honey is my new obsession,' says our Beauty Assistant, Elle. 'It’s highly pigmented so you don’t need to apply layer after layer, and it catches the light with all kinds of shimmery magic.'
They're ba-ack... So loved were the Eye Foils when the first collection launched that they're back in new shades. Blend a little of this over eyeshadow and you'll take the intensity up a level. Shade Blonde Gold will make just about any shadow pop – you'll never want to wear eyeshadow without it.

We guarantee this lot will sell out in three, two, one...
