A beautiful new label ~ Aerin Lauder

Aerin Lauder’s own-name beauty brand was never going to be a low-key launch but the product itself is as unflashy as it gets. OK, the luxurious compact packaging is something you’ll want to show off, but the contents are purely functional, in the best possible way, of course.

Aerin, the brand is starting small with an Essentials capsule product line and a seasonal colour range. Having worked for the Estee Lauder brands for 20-odd years in all different departments – PR, marketing, product development – Aerin decided the time was right to market her own taste. And why not, when it’s as impeccable as this?
So the starter range consists of six creamy foundation compacts which are dual-purpose so double as concealer (the consistency is beautiful), a lip-and-cheek compact and a bronzer. There’s also a brush kit with handles that are short enough to be travel-friendly but thick enough to be properly grippable, a lip conditioning balm and a hand and body cream. This being a collection based on genuine utility, Lauder has only included what she considers must-haves so as yet there are no mascaras, eyeliners, lipliners… any of that.
The four-times-a-year seasonal collection is similarly edited down to what’s effortless and useful, so a weekday and a weekend palette containing user-friendly pretty neutrals (eyeshadows, blush and highlighter), a lipstick and a lip gloss. The glosses are very rich in hue (that’s a good thing) and the packaging again is luxe but pared down. One of the stand-out elements is that everything is infused with a very gentle scent of rose, intended to have a calming effect when you’re reapplying your lipstick in the middle of the day.
