Congrats to our winner Andrea!
I'm not going to lie- I LOVE everything about Aveda all you need to do is read their mission statement to fully grasp their attitude towards respecting our planet and providing a product that is as natural as can be. I'm a fan and I'm pretty sure if you are not familiar with their beauty goodies-one you try them they will quickly gain your favor. And I'm GIDDY with excitement that this leader in botanical beauty and professional products has JUST unveiled Art of Nature, Aveda's limited-edition makeup collection for Spring/Summer 2013.
Inspired by nature, boasting pure pastels and vibrant colors. The collection includes two Nourish-Minttm Smoothing Lip Colors, one Nourish-Minttm Rehydrating Lip Glaze, two Nourish-Minttm Lip Liners, one Petal Essencetm Face Accents, two Petal Essencetm Eye Definers and six Petal Essencetm Single Eye Colors.
Aveda's Art of Nature collection introduces a blossoming color palette created with a conscience. Its makeup goes beyond minerals with natural plant ingredients that are gentle to skin and the planet while sheer to intense shades for eyes and lips create a romantic flush of color.
