A while back I did a post on my visit to the Aveda Institute in London. Well Aveda firmly has a place in my top brands. For those who don't know, Aveda has a great ethical policy on using the earth sustainably. This means everything they use is sustainable, recycled or recyclable! (I have mentioned this in more detail in the post I linked above!)
I thought I would give you a closer look at some of their makeup products.
Please feel free to feast your eyes on the makeup stand.
That is a little bit exciting! It screams 'come here and have a look!' I have a couple of things off that stand. Here are a couple of the stand out products for me.

Lipglaze for AutumnAutumn means colder drier lips for me, and a shift to berry colours. I am so pleased I have this product. Aveda Lipglaze in 865 Cassia.

|Aveda Hydrating LipGlaze in 865 Cassia. Doesn't it look like a lovely refreshing berry drink?|
Right: Lips with Aveda gloss on!
I find this glaze is a nice treat for my lips. Some lip products seem to dry out within 20 minutes, leaving your lips unprotected. You then lick then to make them moist- which then evaporates and dries them even more! Not this product. I can happily apply it in the morning and it's still moisturising at lunch. The hint of colour is still there too. These glazes come in a range of colours and costs £15.50 for 7ml. When I compare it to other tubes of gloss I fine that I am using less of this over the same time due to needing to apply less. Value for money!
Aveda products are available internationally from many of their stores, or if you don't live near an Aveda store then you can peruse or purchase from their website http://www.aveda.co.uk
I also like it because the word 'Glaze' reminds me of glazed donuts at Krispie Kreme.
- I have some other Aveda products in my stash so I will share those at later dates.
- I am currently loving wearing mid trench coats for autumn (replacing my blazer jackets).
- My nails are now sporting YSL's Expresso nail polish having raiding my 'Autumn' basket.
- Skin is loving Alpha H.
Do you change your lip colours for Autumn? What is your favorite nourishing lip product? Have you tried Aveda's makeup?
P.s. Don't forget my Chanel giveaway is open (click top bar giveaway link!)
As always views on here are my own and not influenced by the origins of the product. The lipglaze was a PR sample, but I do shop in Aveda with my own money.
