Aerin’s winter colour palette is one of my surprise hits of the season; much more pigmented than others she’s released, I Boscoed my cheeks with the blush, expecting as I was a far sheerer wash of colour. The shadows too, are wonderfully deep, so I’m hoping for good things from that super-exciting looking Kaleidolight Palette, €50, which launches in February along with the rest of the spring products.

This cutie is designed to be a complexion enhancer. Mix the “five skin-loving, light-enhancing shades of bronze, beige, pink and lavender [and] add subtle glow in one sweep.” Hey, ok!

Aerin rose balm for SS14

There are also some new rose additions like a collection of 10 new Rose Balm Lipsticks en route and the above, Aerin Rose Balm, €50, also landing in February. This going to be a luxe multi-purpose salve for lips, cuticles, face and more. Flower-based, it’s designed to be deeply moisturising – and I cannot wait to give it a go.

Just some of what’s on the way from Aerin, but a clear indicator that this brand is moving up a gear for 2014, I think.
