Victoria Beckham Beauty $58
A matte-finish bronzer duo for creating depth and warmth.
Written By LENA RAFF
Victoria Beckham has changed the clean beauty game with chic, sustainable packaging and striking, long-lasting, bold pigments in luxurious textures. VIOLET STAFFERS and shoppers have become dedicated to the Satin Kajal Liners, the silky Posh Lipsticks, and the uber-glam, sparkling Lid Lustres. Speaking with all honesty, every product in the line is a home run, but our experts have noticed that the brand has a particular knack for what can often be a tricky category–mattes.
Creating the perfect matte is a delicate balance––it has to be smooth with excellent color-payoff, but cannot fall into the trap of becoming a dry, chalky powder that leaves more cast than color.
If you’ve tried Victoria Beckham Beauty’s Smoky Eye Brick, you know that the uber-pigmented shadows are incredibly easy to apply, blending effortlessly and leaving behind a velvety, sophisticated finish. So, when the brand announced another matte product, a dual-color, warming, and sculpting bronzer in five flawless shades for every complexion, we requested samples of them all and distributed them accordingly.
STAFFERS were taken with this product before we even opened the opulent, substantial, plastic-free, and refillable compact. The weight in our hands was the epitome of luxury, and with packaging this beautiful, we considered displaying it as an art piece.
Each Matte Bronzing Brick includes two shades: one lighter for warming the complexion, and one deeper for subtle sculpting. The shimmer-free formula is never chalky, orangey, or streaky, and instead glides on, seamlessly melting in for an almost-filtered, skin-blurring effect.
With STAFFERS sporting a soft, sunkissed glow and perfectly-pronounced cheekbones, we knew it was high time we got this to our Committee of Industry Experts.
“The packaging is gorgeous, and I love that it contains two tones for highlighting and contouring in one. The product is a superfine powder that lifts up and blends in effortlessly with a brush.” —DR. ROSEMARIE INGLETON, Dermatologist
“Chic casing aside, the dual brick shades give me flexibility for depth and tone on the cheeks and eyes. ” —DANIEL MARTIN, Makeup Artist
“This bronzing brick made me look naturally sun-kissed without the orangey tone associated with a lot of bronzers.” — SOPHIE PAVITT, Esthetician
With testers loving the natural smoothing ingredients and beautiful matte finish (plus how easily it applied), Victoria Beckham Beauty’s Matte Bronzing Brick is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a place on THE SHELVES.
The VIOLET CODE is a process and set of standards by which VIOLET GREY’s Committee of Industry Experts separate hero products from the tens of thousands of options available to you on the market. The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best.
