Aveda Passion Flower Makeup Collection, nourish-mint smoothing lip colors* - £12.50
available in Aveda salons, spas and online

a limited edition collection of petal inspired tones for eyes and lips

Aveda has always been a brand I have adored ever since my hairdresser introduced me to their haircare range about six years ago. Sometimes I get so absorbed with their beautiful treatments and styling products that I completely neglect the fact that they also specialise in skincare and makeup, not forgetting fragrances and something for the man in your life. The Passion Flower makeup collection is Aveda's AW12 launch and is inspired by ultra-feminine beauty with a modern twist. The lip colors, liners, glazes and eyeshadows boast a rich, juicy palette grounded by distinctly neutral shades, making it a very versatile collection for a number of looks.

The lip colors come in three show-stopping, limited edition shades; wild fuchsia, snap dragon and rare orchid. Fickle I know but I love the names of these lipsticks and the typically planet-friendly packaging you would expect from Aveda. The lipsticks may look dinky but they actually offer a smidgeon more product than your average MAC lipstick say, so you shouldn't be put off by their inferior size.

The lip colors are infused with plant and fruit waxes which means they smooth out fine lines whilst hydrating and plumping your lips. The are highly-pigmented, creamy and sport a love-it-or-hate-it minty fresh scent. Once applied, the organic mint and vanilla flavour tingles and tantalises your lips causing a slight plumping effect. For my first dabble with Aveda's beauty range, I am seriously impressed. These lip colors are great products with a long-lasting coverage and a beautifully rich colour and smooth application. I would be hard pushed to choose my favourite but I think Rare Orchid may just outshine the others - but only just! What about you? Which is your favourite shade?
