Time for another gorgeous spring collection – this time I’ll be talking about the new AERIN Garden Color Collection, a pretty, delicate collection comprised of 2 palettes, an illuminating powder, 2 blushed, 3 lip glosses and 3 lipsticks. This collection will be available next month at Holt Renfrew (Toronto Bloor St, Vancouver and Calgary locations) and online. This limited edition collection is inspired by the shades of spring’s early flowers, ranging from delicate to dramatic. I’ve had a chance to try out a couple of the products from this collection and am in love. The packaging is beautiful and glamorous, and the shades are so fresh and pretty.
Aerin Spring Style Palette in A Garden in Bloom ($78) – Both of the 2 palettes included in this collection contain a blush and 3 eyeshadows that perfect complement each other. This palette is the lighter of the two, with nearly-nude shades and a very soft, rosy blush. I found that these shades were perfect for creating a neutral, feminine daytime look. They all applied very smoothly, providing light colour for a fresh face. Also, can we talk about the packaging for a minute? Both palettes come in this beautiful patterned, zip-around case, which I’m completely obsessed with. this one isn’t going in my makeup bag – it will be proudly on display!
Aerin Floral Illuminating Powder ($60) – This illuminating powder, which comes in a gorgeous golden compact, is so delicate and pretty I almost didn’t want to use it. The design of the powder is just too lovely. This powder features 6 soft pastel shades which create a glowing, flushed look when combined. I loved how these shades all came together to create a gorgeous shade which I believe would be flattering on any skin colour. The soft shimmer and lighter shades really add a nice highlighting effect to the blush aspect of this powder, and it blends really nicely with the skin for a pretty flush.
