Victoria Beckham Magnificence Chiffon & Mirror Lid Lustres Opinions & Swatches

Victoria Beckham Beauty Chiffon Lid Lustre ($36.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a darker peach with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of aqua and copper sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderately-dense, lightly emollient texture that was thinner than most shades in the range.

For those who prefer more of a wash of sparkle, this was the easiest shade to work with for that effect. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.17oz. – $211.76 per ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “wet, pearly finish” that has “buildable, high-shine brilliance.” The finish is described as “buildable,” while the pigmentation doesn’t have any descriptors but the brand shows it “in action” with full coverage with a single pass of a fingertip and fully opaque promotional swatches.

If you’re unfamiliar with this type of eyeshadow formula, it tends to feel like a hybrid between cream and powder, but it has the feel of loosely-pressed powder that has a slightly thicker, more emollient feel to the touch. Imagine loose eyeshadow that’s been gently pressed with a fingertip: that’s what this formula is like and does. It’s not so fragile to the point where it looks and feels like loose powder in the jar, which is thanks to the binders in it, but it yields that kind of pigmentation and finish.

The range delivered high color coverage in a single layer, which worked well with fingertips as well as brushes. While they could be used wet, they certainly did not need to be in order to achieve the “wet, pearly finish” that the brand marketed these as having. I did feel like using a dampened brush or fingertip helped to minimize opportunities for fallout, as using a dry brush sometimes had light fallout depending on the shade. I would suggest using a lighter hand when working with these as not a lot was necessary to achieve an even layer of product.

They wore between eight and nine hours on me before creasing slightly.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Mirror Lid Lustre ($36.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a darker, silvery pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a brighter, warmer sparkle visible at certain angles. It had a thicker feel in the jar, which translated to something that was a little texturizing on my skin, so I found using a fingertip or a dampened brush was best for really smoothing out the shimmer/sparkle to get it to sit flatteringly on my skin.

It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which blended out well but had light fallout during application. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours but had slight fallout over time as well.
