AERIN Lipstick - Mercer

Today I have another item from AERIN's New York City Color Collection to share with you! AERIN's Lipstick in Mercer* ($34 CAD) is such a great shade for Fall and Winter, and the slightly sheer formula makes it a great option for anyone venturing into the world of vampy lips.

AERIN Lipstick in Mercer

"Mercer resonates in deep merlot, adding easy drama to any fall look. Uptown or downtown, the signature floral infusion in both the Lipstick and Lip Gloss revitalizes the senses with every touch-up, leaving lips soft and smooth" - AERIN

The packaging of AERIN's lipstick is beautiful, a rectangular block of gold. I was surprised that there wasn't any branding on the outside of the packaging, only on the inner tube. This lipstick has a nice weight to it, and it does look and feel very high-end. I do find that this lipstick has a fairly plasticy-floral scent to it, which might bother some people. You can't smell it at all once it's applied though.

Mercer is a deep berry shade with offers a light-medium amount of coverage. This formula will cling to dry patches, so I do like to layer a gloss over top of it. This lipstick feels creamy on my lips, but I do feel the need to apply a balm or gloss over top after about an hour. The colour itself does last for about 5 hours, which I find is quite good!
