Botany enthusiasts/luxury makeup lovers who like late afternoon gardening and subtle colors will love Aerin Beauty’s new A Garden at Dusk Face Palette.
Um…yeah, that’s a very targeted market.
The second of two $70 limited edition eye and cheek palettes in Aerin Beauty’s spring line (A Garden in Bloom is the first) shares many traits in common with its equally expensive sibling, like pretty packaging; subtle, cool-toned, sheer shades; and easy-to-blend powders.
First thing? Wow, $70. That’s a lot. I find myself wanting more — I don’t know — pigment for the price. More something, for sure.
I like the barely-there look, the quality of these powders and the overall vibe, but A Garden in Dusk, like A Garden in Bloom, faces stiff competition from less expensive products and other brands. I do think it’s lovely, but there’s no way around it — $70 is a lot.
AVAILABILITY: Available now online and at Aerin Beauty counters and Bergdorf Goodman stores
