instagram- you may have seen that I was invited to preview some new Fall makeup from Aveda. My local Aveda at City Creek Center, is like sensory heaven!
The oxblood lipstick trend is such an easy update to your Fall makeup routine, and although the deep shade of red may seem intimidating to you- I swear it is the most flattering shade on every skin tone. I witnessed this Aveda Lip Color (Shade Redwood) go on at least 10 different skin tones during this event, and not a single one looked bad wearing it. Seriously! I have never seen that happen before, so you better believe I snatched up a tube of this stuff for myself. If you are going to buy ONE THING this fall for your makeup bag- this color lipstick should be it!

I took home the Aveda Tinted Moisturizer (Shade 02 Beechwood) and let me tell ya... AMAZE! I am going to add this to my list of recommends on my BB Cream post (*remember that BB Cream is just a fancy title for tinted moisturizer) This stuff has the best fragrance of any tinted cream that I have used- it's almost minty and I love it! The coverage and texture are also a little heavier, but without feeling greasy or makeup-y. I have added it to my routine on the daily, and will be buying more of this for sure.
Lastly, I snagged the Aveda Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Cream. The word tourmaline sparked my attention, because of its use inside heat styling tools in the hair industry. It's a mineral used to smooth and shine hair... and apparently skin too! This stuff is thick and uber-riche (like my german/french there?) It is a great day cream and I think it will be perfect for rehydrating my skin in the upcoming cold and dry months. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin, however- but for dry ladies and gents, this stuff is boss!
I know there are millions of die-hard Aveda fans out there- so if you are one of them, please share with me your favorite products that I need to try on my next visit. And as always, I'd love it if you would sign up to follow me by email, bloglovin, or on facebook. xoxo
