This Is The Lip Gloss Color Of The Season — & It's Selling Out Fast

Victoria Beckham, style icon and eternal Spice Girl, added beauty tycoon to her résumé last year when she teamed up with Estée Lauder to launch an eponymous collection — and boy was it good. Luckily, the demand was so high that the powerhouse duo has brought back select pieces, debuted a few new additions, and released a fuller collection of must-haves again. From smoky eyeshadows and matte bronzers, to beige lip glosses and neutral lipsticks, the range is exactly what we think of when we envision Posh — short of a little Gucci dress.

One of the most popular items from the line is a stunning, high-shine lip gloss called Desert Heat: a universally-flattering beige with hints of neutral brown, a sheer finish, and lightly-glossy texture. It's a spice-spiked shade, if you will — and very fitting for a former Spice Girl.

As you might expect, we're not the only ones eyeing this easy-to-wear color. It's so popular that it's currently sold out at Sephora, but fear not, because it appears that this shade of '90s, spicy beige is here to stay, because similar hues have been found in several other cult launches, which means that whether you turn to Posh, Rihanna, or Kylie Jenner, the (now) iconic shade can be yours quite easily.

We've rounded up a few alternative options to help you achieve the ultimate Posh Spice shine, ahead.

Jenner's namesake glosses, which launched in 2016, were part of the gloss resurgence in a major way. This mid-toned beige shade, called Literally, is a close match to Desert Heat, but beware: The sugar-scented option veers a little sticky, but well worth it if you're after a super glossy look.

Ulta's in-house line features its own option to achieve a high-shine finish on the lips, which comes in 12 shades ranging from pale pink to deep purple. The color Audrey is a medium, spicy beige — and is very similar to Desert Heat — at a fraction of the price.

Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line flew off Sephora shelves when it launched earlier this month — and this gloss was one of the standouts. The neutral hue and subtle gold shimmer work well with all skin tones and the gel-like formula stays on the lips for hours without turning sticky or tacky. Win-win!

Fenty Beauty, Gloss Bomb, $18, available at Sephora.
Nyx's butter glosses have quite a cult following — and for good reason. They're less than $10, feel lightweight and hydrating, and are packed with pigment. The shade Peanut Brittle offers major shine and is a dead ringer for Posh's best seller.

Nyx, Intense Butter Gloss, $6.49, available at Ulta.
