AERIN Lipstick - Red Velvet

Today I have a beautiful red lipstick to share with you from AERIN's Midnight Color Collection! The shade Red Velvet* ($34 CAD/4g) is the perfect red lipstick for the upcoming holiday season! This lipstick would also make an excellent Christmas gift, as the packaging looks quite luxurious.

"Three new shades of the signature AERIN Lipstick enhance every look. Sequin subtly shimmers with golden gleam and Jacquard caresses lips in rich, creamy caramel. Red Velvet is the effortless red you’ve always wanted, the perfect shade for the perfect red pout. Plus, the signature AERIN floral infusion helps condition and soothe, the requisite prep for the stroke of midnight." - AERIN

Red Velvet is a gorgeous true red shade, with slightly pink undertones. The formula of this AERIN lipstick is slightly creamy, but I don't find it to be overly hydrating. This lipstick is extremely pigmented, so I do recommend using a mirror to apply it, and a matching lip liner. Red Velvet (also, what a perfect name!), would be the perfect holiday red shade to wear. You can pair a similar red gloss over top, but I think it would also look quite festive with a clear gloss with gold shimmers. Alternatively, this lipstick looks perfect worn just by itself. I get about 5 hours of wear from this lipstick, but I do have to apply a lip balm after about 2 hours.

Have you picked up any items from AERIN's Midnight Color Collection yet? I've been really impressed with her lip products, and there's a similar shade of lip gloss in this collection called Vibrant. Will you be rocking a red lip this holiday season? :)

AERIN MIDNIGHT COLOR will be available for a limited time beginning November 2013 at Holt Renfrew Toronto Bloor Street, Yorkdale, Calgary, Vancouver and online at
