Floral Illuminating Powder ($55, shown above) from the Spring 2013 Garden Color Collection. I am a pushover for a pretty compact. This one has touches of gold (that are gone with the first use) and offers a pretty rose pink color for the cheeks.
Like the bright, fresh possibility of an idyllic spring morning, the Floral Illuminating Powder features six soft pastels that swirl into one illuminating shade to brighten any complexion. The luxuriously silky blush dusts the face with subtle radiance. Plus, AERIN's signature rose scent adds a finishing touch of understated elegance.
Multi Color for Lips and Cheeks, it is presented in a pretty pink pouch inside its pink box. The description calls it an illuminating powder and a blush. I would definitely call it a blush.
I took swatch photos in full, morning sun, just as it was about to cloud over. I had to hurry. I applied the powder heavily at the top of my arm with a sponge-tipped applicator, taking care to roll it over all of the shades in the compact. The larger swatch below was applied with a kabuki brush.
You can purchase items from AERIN's Spring 2013 Color Collection at the Estée Lauder Web site and at Estée Lauder counters (and online) at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, and at AERIN.com.
