Housed in the most intriguing and unique faux-leather black compacts, the Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham products very well embody Beckham's edgy yet classy style.

Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham "Black Myrrh" Eye Ink ($55 CAD):
Described as a "pressed gel-cream", "Black Myrrh" Eye Ink is a lovely midnight black powder eye shadow packed with iridescent shimmers. The formulation is definitely not a gel or a cream but it indeed is very buttery and pigmented. Shades like these tend to be patchy and chalky but "Black Myrrh" can definitely be an intense shadow or a dramatic liner (when used wet).
