Inspired by the look and feel of elaborate velvets and winter florals, the 2013 Limited Edition AERIN Winter Collection creates allure with its opulent golden tones and natural pretty nudes — mixed in with a bold hue for a collection that goes from creating a natural glow to one of pure decadence.
I was surprised to see my favorite hue in the color palette, as you all know how very much I love wearing a red lip. The AERIN Color Palette ($70.00) was created to reflect the effortless beauty of Midnight Color — using soft golds, sheer textures and pops of color to mix and match to create countless chic looks.
AERIN to me is the epitome of chic, right down to the embossed text in her golden packaging (which is sometimes then wrapped in luxurious nude-like pink-colored velour pouches). The golden luster of Brocade, a powder eyeshadow, adds light shimmer to the lid.
Midnight Lace cream shadow blends easily to add dimension and depth in a rich brown, while Emerald, a powder shadow, adds a pop of color. Cheeks are delightfully delicate and fresh with a sweep of powder blush in Quartz.
“With rich textures and intricate layers highlighted by deep cranberries, golds and beautiful neutrals, this collection is inspired as much by the beauty of a vintage tapestry and the warmth of the holiday season.”- Aerin Lauder, Founder and Creative Director, AERIN
GEM STONE COLOR TREND ALERT! I just finished reviewing the new Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks, which were also named after jewels! So, we must address this gorgeous AERIN Cool Gel Eyeliner ($28.00) in Gilt, as it glistens on the eyes; I could not stop staring at the swatch on my hand! You can also layer it over a darker shade to allow the metallic color to gleam with intense dimension. The effect is ideal for midnight… and beyond!
Highlight lips, eyes and cheeks with AERIN Multi Color Duo for Lips & Cheeks ($42.00) in Warm Gold and Rich Nude to sculpt cheeks, highlight features and give lips a pretty pop of polish.
The NEW shades of the signature AERIN Lip Gloss ($30.00 each) is available in Festive, Golden Kiss (sampled) and Vibrant (sampled). They truly reflect the full spectrum from soft to sensational. Three new shades of AERIN Lipstick ($30.00 each) are introduced as well in Sequin, Jacquard and Red Velvet. And let me tell you, they are delightfully creamy yet not too emollient, so the lip color won’t feather or bleed. Plus, the signature AERIN floral infusion helps to condition and soothe lips.
AERIN Midnight Color Winter Collection is available at select retailers and online at AERIN.com and EsteeLauder.com.
