Multi Color for Lips and Cheeks ($42) is available in two shades: Freesia, the one I purchased online (shown here), and Sweet Pea, a pink that I feared would be too light. I took quite a chance on Freesia, which appears to be coral in the photo above from the Web site. I was totally delighted when I saw the cream color on my skin.
Capturing that first day of spring, can't-wait-to-get-outside feeling, AERIN's limited-edition Spring 2013 Color Collection is inspired by the shades of early spring flowers. Enhanced with AERIN's signature floral infusion, this endlessly-wearable collection washes cheeks, lips, and eyes with the shades of the season, from softly delicate to slightly dramatic. It's beauty made easy, stylish, and effortless - it's the perfect fresh start for Spring.
Spring days grow longer, as does your daily to-do list. Skip a step with one of AERIN's favorite two-in-one essentials. New limited-edition shades are as easy to blend as they are to wear, enhancing any skin tone with a delicate hint of natural color that blooms on lips and cheeks.
I took my swatch photos in full sun, while I was freezing (notice my veins trying to deliver blood to keep my arm warm?). I applied the cream color with a sponge-tipped applicator. It applies and blends beautifully.
Even though I have written it before, never judge a color by the way it looks in the tube, compact, or packaging. AERIN's Freesia made me a believer in AERIN's line. Next time I swing by the counter, I will test everything there.
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.
