For the record, Victoria Beckham taught
me, beauty director and therefore expert, something new about make-up,
purely by collaborating with Estée Lauder and creating my most favourite thing: Modern Mercury. The wet-look bronzer-highlighter-hybrid that changed my face for the better forever (until it sells out or runs out and I go back to being unsculpted and a bit paler) is BACK! This news requires CAPITALS to emphasise its GREATNESS. This incarnation is in a tweaked leather case – so collectible, so chic – and is joined by an epic mascara with a wand so tiny it seems kind of inconsequential. Until you use it, and see each and every lash get a not-insignificant growth spurt. And while I’m on the subject, the new nude lipstick, aptly called Victoria, is richer and cooler than before, in the tonal and cultural sense. I’m bulk ordering to save
myself the sell-out heartache.
