Welcome to the first post of 2013! I hope you all had lovely New Years Eve's. This is a particularly exciting post for me as I think these lip products are simply brilliant. AERIN (part of Estee Lauder) is the brainchild of Aerin Lauder, she launched her collection in September with an aim to achieve effortless and stylish beauty. Each one of these products is right up my street and I love everything about them from the colour, the quality to the packaging. I particularly like the packaging of the gloss with it's shimmering golden case, it is so pretty to look at! These pieces come from the current Holiday Color Collection.

These lipsticks are the perfect colour range for me - two nudes, one bright and one dark and beautiful. They have such a velvet texture and leave a beautiful shine on the lips which makes them so comfortable to wear yet the pigment of the colour does not suffer at all and despite their consistency, they last all day. The lipsticks themselves are mini's which makes them perfect for having one (or two) in your handbag, it also manages to make them somewhat more appealing in their dainty gold cases!
The gloss I particularly love, because like I mentioned, the packaging is so lovely and I love how the gloss comes in a compact - it gives it an extra special feel. The gloss, appropriately named 'Nude'. has such a creamy consistency and I love the light brown colour, it makes for such a natural but stylish gloss that also looks great over the lipsticks. Like with all AERIN products it has an amazing rose scent to it which honestly smells good enough to eat! (You can see the gloss swatch at the end of the other swatches).
If you haven't checked out the AERIN range then you definitely should! It's completely new to me but I am so glad to have discovered it!
