AERIN Fall Color Palette

Estée Lauder's daughter, Aerin Lauder, has released a makeup line, called AERIN Beauty. Today I have her Fall Color Palette* (78 CAD) from her New York City Color Collection to share with you! This is my first time trying out this line, so read on to hear my thoughts :)

"Celebrate the contrasts of city life and explore Aerin’s hometown with the AERIN Fall 2013 collection, New York City Color.  From the pristine polish of uptown to the casual cool atmosphere of downtown, AERIN offers a perfectly edited selection of on-trend, endlessly wearable must-have looks for a New York City lifestyle without boundaries.

As the centerpiece of the collection, the AERIN Fall Color Palette plays with contrast and soft hues to highlight both the refined elegance of the Upper East Side and laidback ease of Soho. Three versatile eyeshadows effortlessly mix and match to create countless looks.  Barely There provides the perfect neutral canvas, while Smoky Navy and Midnight Shine lend depth and definition.  A wash of Soft Beige adds a blush of cheek color to finish any look – striking and pretty, polished and bold." - AERIN 

AERIN Fall Color Palette swatches

AERIN's Fall Color Palette consists of one powder blush and three eye shadows. This gorgeous gold palette comes housed in a delicate pink pouch. I love the packaging for this palette, it's very girly and feminine! This palette also comes with two double ended sponge applicators, but I prefer to use my own brushes. This compact has a nice big mirror, so it would make on the go application very easy. The blush included in this palette is a beautiful natural looking peachy nude. This blush applies evenly and effortlessly, and I don't think that it can be overdone. The eye shadows in this Fall Color Palette help to create a beautiful natural smokey eye. I love these shadows because they aren't overly pigmented, meaning that they are perfect for beginners or anyone who wants a more understated look. These shades can be built up to a more intense look, or sheered out for a natural look. The Barely There shade makes for an excellent brow bone and inner corner highlight. I like to use these eye shadows over top of either a primer or a cream shadow to help prolong the wear time and increase the intensity of the shades.

I think that this palette would be great for anyone that typically likes to wear understated colours, but wants to add a bit of depth to their eyes for Fall and Winter. I don't think that this palette is a must-have, but the shades are beautiful and I really like the formulas. The blush pairs beautifully with the shadows, and you can easily pair either a nude or a vampy lip with this look. The packaging is gorgeous, and I think that any beauty lover would appreciate receiving this palette as a gift.
