After watching this season of The Bachelor, I’m in love with bright lippies. Both Britt and Katelyn wore incredibly saturated magenta and pinky-purple lipsticks, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a few for Spring. In comes, Aveda’s Rare Bloom Collection.
Rare Bloom, a collection inspired by wildflowers, has three standout items you have to see. When Aveda sent me these items to test and review, I was giddy with excitement. I didn’t think it was possible to be more excited than I was for the Romantic Grandeur Collection.
Aveda Petal Essence Single Eye Color in 958 Plumeria ($15) is a deep plum with a satin finish. It’s a saturated red grape shade. The shade is extremely blendable and buildable. My only complaint is the shadow is quite powdery, so I’m battling fallout. Otherwise, the color, finish, application and wear are lovely.
Aveda Nourish-mint Lip Liner in 939 Dragon Fruit ($16) is a deep, matte magenta. The liner is slightly creamy and doesn’t drag across the lips at all. The corresponding lipstick (see below) lasts much longer when worn with the liner.
Aveda Nourish-mint Smoothing Lip Color in 935 Magenta Berry ($16) is a home run. It has a creamy application, a slight sheen and a hydrating feel, not to mention to ah-mazing signature mint scent. The color isn’t 100% opaque unless worn with the lipliner.
