Victoria Beckham Lid Lustre Onyx review

Wait?! Didn’t we already review the Victoria Beckham Lid Lustre? Yes we did, but that review was for the shade Mink. By now however, I have come into Onyx (it was sent in PR) and so today we are looking into whether the quality of the VB line is consistent yes or no?

After I wrote my review for Mink which I bought with my own money at the Covent Garden VB store summer last year, the brand contacted me and asked if I wanted to receive some PR. Since I had been eyeing up both Mink and Onyx, but with the price the brand goes for it would be a bit much to be trying both in one go. So I went with one to go back to the other if and when possible. So I felt very lucky when the Victoria Beckham team sent this to me.

Review: Victoria Beckham Lid Lustre Onyx

First things first: the price point. As we all know, the Victoria Beckham line is a luxury makeup brand that comes at a higher price point. They are fully vegan and ‘clean’ though and products are definitely produced at a high standard. At €38 for a single eyeshadow that can only be bought through the Victoria Beckham Beauty official website, this product certainly fits into the branding quite nicely.

What does this product have to offer?

Onyx is that same stunning cream to powder formula as Mink. I call this a cream to powder as this product looks, feels and behaves like a powder shadow. However, when you buy this it comes in a pot with a screw on lid and a little protector. And that type of packaging is usually reserved for creams or powders that have a lot of ingredients that make it resemble a cream. I feel this is best applied with a finger but you can also easily use a brush for that very smokey look.

How does this eyeshadow swatch?

There are now 10 shades out in the Lid Lustre eyeshadow range and Onyx is one of the very few cooler toned shadows. That is the only drawback with this product: many of the shades are a bit boring and standard and nothing too exciting. That said, the product is infused with a crystal which is why this product is always so sparkly. I do think Onyx has a more matte look to it than Mink did, but there is still a good payoff for sure.

What does this look like on the eyes?

In a look I feel Onyx makes for that perfect one stop shop for a smokey eye. It has a deep black base with lots of silver reflect. This makes the shadow look like a charcoal but you can really play with the intensity and create more depth as you pack this on. Here I paired it with the Smokey Eye Brick in Tuxedo and the Sea Grey Kohl Kajal eyeliner.

Should you buy the Victoria Beckham Lid Lustre?

There is a reason why the Lid Lustre is what set off my love for the Victoria Beckham brand. It is a great formula that looks stunning and is easy to work with. This lasts all day over primer and gives no fall out. It can be paired with other shadows for a more neutral look, but you can also wear it by itself.

It is probably no surprise then that I would love to buy another one of these. The new shade Velvet looks like it could be right up my street as I love an antique gold, but as I said, there are few true cool tones in the line up. The other shades in this line are things that are close that I already have as a shadow stick or simply as a powder shadow, so I don’t find all the shades worth it.

Unless you plan on using this every day and this is going to be your one stop makeup shop, then this may be a little bit expensive. However, if you want to treat yourself or just buy a super well performing makeup product that will see you through any pickle then this one is for you as it is a solid pick.
