Victoria Beckham has a new “brick on the block!” Even more, the new brick is different than the four original Smoky Eye Bricks. The originals; Signature, Royal, Tuxedo, and Tweed debuted last year, in the VB Spring Fashion Show. Also, the new Silk Smoky Eye Brick debuted in Victoria’s Fall Fashion Show. That’s one way they are different. Another way the new brick is different is the original 4 Bricks shades have matte finishes. On the other hand, the new Brick shades have a satin shine finish.
Therefore, , the new Silk Smoky Eye Brick has more oomph! The biggest difference between the original shades and the new Silk shades have a gilded sparkle. Moreover, these new gilded shades bring a soft, fresh gold highlight and glow to your makeup!
VB New Silk Smoky Eye Brick Packaging
Victoria is environmentally conscious. As a result, her packaging is a reflection of that. So, her outer packaging box is, in fact, post-consumer waste, secondary packaging. And, the packaging is either recyclable, or biodegradable. Her orders come in a reusable canvas bag. I love the bag, It is large enough to hold your makeup, in your handbag, or suitcase.
Another thing Victoria has done, is minimize the size of her palettes. Yet, she does so without minimizing the product inside. In fact her tres chic compact case, is made out of plastic. However, Victoria minimizes the amount of plastic she uses. In other words, she is streamlining her packaging to save on waste. As a result, the case is about the size of a credit card. Also, it is super thin.
The front of the case is faux tortoiseshell. On one side, the palette has a full size mirror. On the other side of the mirror, the palette has 4 eyeshadows. Furthermore, all four shadows are pressed together in one pan.
The Silk Smoky Eye Brick Formula
First, the shadows are pressed , using a unique pressing technology ,into the credit card sized pan. In this way, the technology maximizes the amount of product, in minimal space. The eyeshadow formula includes the finest milled powders. Then, the powders are pressed into the palette. As a result, the shadows have a smooth texture.
Next, Hyaluronic Acid Powder Complex smooths your skin. As a result, your application will be smooth and even. The shadows are as smooth as silk!
The formula is creamy, so the shadows are easy to apply. Even more, the shades are easy to blend, and easy to layer. Furthermore, intense color pigments create rich shades that are long-lasting. They have great color-payoff. Also, they don’t crease. And, they won’t travel all over your face.

Final Thoughts On The Silky Smoky Eye Brick……
I love the gilded shades in this palette. Also, I love that the shades were created to look like silk.
Furthermore, I love that VB keeps sustainability in mind with her clean beauty. She is a classy lady, and her line is special. First, she cares about the environment. Second, she cares about clean ingredients in her products. Finally, she cares about people. For example, VB is donating 20% of the proceeds to Feeding America and UK’s Trussell Trust, in support of their coronavirus efforts! I just love when a makeup brand cares about people! It’s such a good thing! Even some of the USA governors (Georgia) and Mayors (Las Vegas) don’t care about their people.
The world’s economy is fixable. And, it will make a comeback. It is only temporarily on hold. However, once you are gone, you don’t come back. You can fix everything else!
We need our leaders to reflect our understanding of what is going on . We don’t need them opening their states, so their people can get their nails done. They don’t need to risk people’s lives so they can go to the gym. And, their people don’t need TO GET tattoos, when we can’t even get a face mask. And, we don’t need mayors offering up their constituents to be placebo test guinea pigs! W.T.F.?
