Before there was Victoria Beckham, there was Posh Spice. And even though these days she’s all but dead and buried under a pile of cashmere and oversized sunglasses, the memories of her existence will long remain, predominantly within our Instagram feeds. VB herself knows this, and being a woman with a sense of humour, loves to poke fun at the midriff-baring period of her life that was the Spice Girls. She does owe it to Posh for cementing her as an icon in pop culture, and reportedly for inspiring part of her newly minted makeup collection, Victoria Beckham Beauty.
Beckham posted an image of herself back in the girl group days wearing a strappy nude halter, painting her lips with layers of a very 90s nude beige gloss. The real kicker though is that caption, poking fun at VB’s past, and the full circle moment of launching her very chic lip tint and liner just the day before. According to Beckham, Posh likes the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lip Definer in No. 2 and 3 (a true nude, and one that’s slightly more pink). It’s a tongue in cheek approach at her beauty evolution, from the over-lined, over-plucked perfection that was the 90s, to the clean, elevated beauty brand she helms today.
The lip launches are the most recent of VB’s expanding empire, and include the Lip Definer (a vegan pencil liner available in six shades), and a Bitten Lip Tint (one universal gel that marries skincare with makeup. The result is a soft, matte, plump finish). The brand in its entirety is clean, luxe, and simple, and while an exclusive Australian launch is yet to happen, you can buy the products direct from the site.
