AERIN // WINTER COLLECTION

Not gonna lie here…pretty obsessed with this collection. I was so excited when I received them.

The packaging itself is beautiful–when I pulled the eyeliner out of the envelope I squealed with delight, I mean, how gorgeous! Light pink and minimalist gold lettering? Come onn. Plus, the little pink suede pouch for the cheek and lip compact is so luxe, and that’s not even mentioning what is actually inside!

Every single one of these products are amazing, but let me break them down for you:

Lipstick in Red Velvet: Glides on like a dream, and applies as a sheer, but buildable, blue-based red. No sparkles, no glitter, no nothing; just colour. Exactly what I like in a red lip.

Lip Gloss in Golden Kiss: A sheer nude gloss with flecks of gold. Not my usual cup of tea colour-wise, but this non-sticky gloss makes it easy to get your J.Lo on.

Cool Gel Eyeliner in Gilt: You maybe recognize this little wonder from last week’s Beauty Panel challenge on metallics. This eyeliner is my new obsession for adding a je ne sais quoi element to your everyday face. I love lining my waterline, tightline and inner corners with it for adding subtle sparkle and drawing attention to the eye. But, you could totally use it à la Lenny Kravitz in The Hunger Games.I love it combined with a red lip for a quick and festive holiday look.

Multi Colour Duo for Lip and Cheek: This is the perfect palette for adding quick polish to a lazy weekend face, or for adding some radiance. On one side is a warm golden highlighter, and on the other is a nudey creme blush. They give great washes of colour that you can easily build up for more opacity. Smudge it on eyelids, cheeks and lips for a quick glow. Great to bring a long if you’re staying somewhere else for the holiday, and want to cut down on items in your makeup bag. Could easily be paired with any of the items in this collection.
