I am indeed loving the bolder lipsticks this season and this new addition from Aveda has got me quite excited. Aveda has always been known for its hair but apparently they are quite good at make up too. Well, this limited edition 'Heart Land' collection anyway.
The lip product in question is 'Winterberry' which is actually a lip glaze with doe foot applicator similar to a lip gloss but extremely pigmented and more like a lipstick. It's a dark pink toned plum/burgundy with a subtle hint of a duochrome pearlescent finish, it's not glossy or sticky, just smooth and hydrating. It's quite long wearing considering the finish and fades really nicely too. There's also an eyeliner called 'Night Lily' which is a dark purple toned plum with finely milled sparkles, this isn't as pigmented and as long lasting as I hoped, but you can't win them all.
In love with the packaging!
The lip glaze has fresh minty scent with only a very slight tingle when applied on the lips. It's such a gorgeous shade perfect for Autumn/Winter.
On my face I'm wearing: Bobbi Brown bb cream, Benefit 'fake up' concealer, Estee Lauder 'Bronze Goddess' bronzer, strobe liquid. 'Winterberry' lips, 'Night Lily' eyeliner and mascara.
It's definitely a brightening lip colour and one that makes your teeth look even whiter thanks to the subtle cool tones. You can apply a sheer layer and build it up, or apply heavy handed and intensify as desired. A colour that is suited for all skin tones and races. Thank you. I'm in love, need I say more?
Winterberry Lip Glaze £16
