Aveda Spring 2013 Collection - Art of Nature

Aveda is still a brand that I am somewhat newer to, the salon that I go to carries the makeup and skincare lines but I have progressed any further than looking at the displays and gazing at all the pretty makeup colors.  Not that I need another makeup line to collect items from, but Aveda is very unique and contains many formulas that are much more natural than many of the products that I currently use.  So far, I have been most enamoured with the blushes and many of the eye shadow shades, the lip glosses and lipstick lines don't contain unique shades and I already own many of them.  I have a hair appointment at the end of next month so I will be following up with some products reviews if I decide to purchase from the makeup line.

I am hoping that my salon has the new spring collection from Aveda on the makeup table by the next time that I am visiting there.  Art of Nature is the newest collection from this company and it contains products for every facial feature in hues of reds and pinks.  The model for the collection has pale skin and reddish hair so I know that this collection will have products and shades that are flattering for me.  I am in the market for a pinkish red lipstick, this is the one hue of red lipstick that I don't own and I want to add to it my collection by very early spring. 

The new collection from Aveda is called Art of Nature and contains a series of lip products and shades that will be perfect for the spring and summer months.  I can see red and pink lip hues already and I can see that this will be a great spring collection for me.

Here is the newest collection from Aveda!

I think that I like the two lipstick shades the best in this collection evne though the descriptions of them suggest slightly warmer tones than how they appear on the website pictures.  I now really need to see these colors at the salon and I hope that I can see them the next time that I visit.  The lighter shade could be perfect, I just hope that it not too peachy and it actually is more like how it appears o the website.  I have a feeling that this collection could be one of the best for me this spring or a total disaster.  This will be one of those collections that I need to see in real life before I purchase any of the shades from it...
