The spring/summer collection from Aveda is called the Art of Nature Collection, and it’s an absolutely stunning set of makeup from top to bottom. The makeup is very earthy and organic looking, yet colorful and inspired by nature. If you’re new to Aveda products, I have to tell you that their company is one that I believe in and have personally used for many years now because they actually believe in taking care of our planet and giving back. They believe in environmental responsibility, and their products are made with ingredients in which more than 50% comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, or other natural source. They are constantly striving for healthier, organic ingredients in their cosmetics, and their packaging is eco-conscious. Since April is Earth Month, I thought it’d be perfect to feature this gorgeous collection and give Aveda the recognition it deserves as a brand. I’ve got their Nourish-Mint Sheer Mineral Lip Color for you today in the color “Sheer Melochia Bloom.” It’s a stunning poppy shade that has a sheerness to it that makes your lips look natural, but better.

This collection is stunning from top to bottom. I actually have the entire collection for review, so keep looking out for more swatches, reviews, and makeup looks using these.
Look at the model wearing the collection above…isn’t it dreamy? It reminds me of a fairy in a garden. It’s very natural and ethereal, yet earthy and bright.
The Nourish-Mint Sheer Mineral Lip Color’s have spearmint in them, which not only helps to give you a natural plumping effect without the sting, but it smells absolutely minty-fresh and delicious! I love to wear minty lip products in the spring and summer when the weather gets really warm because it makes my lips feel really cool and refreshed. Also, this lipstick is extremely moisturizing and feels really smooth and lovely when applied.
Keep in mind that this lipstick is meant to be sheer, so the color of the actual lipstick in the tube is brighter and darker than what you are actually going to get. The lip color is gorgeous and perfect for everyday wear, especially if you work in a conservative office or just prefer to keep your makeup to a minimum.
This is one of those shades that just makes your lips look fuller, smoother, and adds a little lift to your face. These are probably my favorite everyday colors to wear because they go with almost everything and they help make you look less tired. When I’m getting ready for the day, I typically reach for a pretty pink shade like this one. Sheer Melochia Bloom is just a stunning poppy coral pink.
On the lips, it feels so minty fresh and cooling. The color is flattering on anyone of any skin tone. It’s natural looking, but it still makes your lips look better than if there was nothing on them. I actually intend to recreate the look that the model is wearing in the collection photograph at the beginning of this post because I think it’s so gorgeous. She is clearly wearing Sheer Melochia Bloom in the picture, and it makes her skin look glowing and soft.
The Aveda Art of Nature Collection is limited edition for spring/summer 2013, and is available at Aveda counters nationwide. You can also browse and purchase this collection online at Aveda’s website. To view the Nourish-Mint Sheer Mineral Lip Color in “Sheer Melochia Bloom” use this link.

They are a wonderful eco-conscious brand that pays attention to their packaging and their ingredients. Stay tuned for more swatches and reviews of this entire collection!
