This mom wouldn’t be caught dead wearing mom jeans the beauty edition:Aveda introduces its Art of Nature collection for Spring/summer 2013 and we are giving it ALL away to one lucky girlfriend!

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 repscting 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.

Janell Geason, Artistic Director for Aveda makeup says with this collection they’re, “seeing a return to color in makeup with techniques that create a more lived-in, less ‘done’ look,”. The  collection starts with pure pastels like the first buds of spring, and builds into lush,
high-summer color.

Aveda Petal Essence tm Single Eye Colors provide crease-resistant color with aromatic flower waxes of jasmine and geranium to create a petal-soft texture that builds and blends effortlessly. The silky, lightweight formula applies evenly and sets beautifully to deliver color that remains true throughout the day and is delicately scented with a whisper of floral aroma. Six limited-edition high-summer colors are available as part of the Art of Nature Collection: Lemongrass, Papyrus, Cinnamon Bark, Lantana, Bare Bellis and Oceanica. (U.S. $14, SRP*)

Aveda Nourish-Minttm Smoothing Lip Color formulas are infused with plant and fruit waxes to help smooth fine lines, hydrate and plump lips. Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color provides creamy, saturated, full coverage with carmine-free∗ pigments. Two limited-edition shades will launch as part of the Art of Nature Collection: Cana  and Melochia Bloom. (U. S. $16, SRP*)

Nourish-Minttm Rehydrating Lip Glaze glides on smooth for immediate, even color with a satin shine. These glazes are carmine-free∗ and are available in one shade as part of the Art of Nature Collection: Kukui (U. S. $18, SRP*)

Nourish-Mint tm Lip Liner is formulated with plant waxes and fruit butters to help shape and define the lips. The plant lipids deliver a moisturization that is long-wearing, non-feathering and doesn’t smudge. Two limited-edition shades will launch as part of the
Art of Nature Collection: Cocoa Bean  and Barberry Bloom. (US$16, SRP)

Aveda Petal Essence TM Face Accent is a petal-smooth face color trio that creates the perfect blush, flush, bronze or highlight. Formulated without parabens, talc, or mineral-oil, it’s available in one shade as part of the Art of Nature Collection: Hibiscus (U.S. $24, SRP*).

Petal Essence tm Eye Definers are formulated from jasmine petals and geranium leaves and the aromatic flower waxes make this formula creamy, blendable and smooth. It stays color-true on eyes or brow, while still respecting the delicate skin around the eye. Two limited-edition shades are available as part of the Art of Nature Collection: Jade and Wild Indigo (existing shade). (U.S. $16, SRP)

  4. says

    Hopefully there will be a man with me, so because we will be running around free and naked, we will need plenty of moisturizer with sun block, we don’t want burnt or chafed asses….
    Love this makeup package!

  5. Crystal Nigmatjonova says

    I’d take Petal Essence tm Eye Definers because that is the one piece of make – up I use everyday

  6. says

    It’s so cliche but true-I’d take my eyelash curler. BUT that’s a tool so I’ll say concealer right now-not sexy but when you’re old, totally imperative!

  7. Andrea Darst says

    Such a tough call! But it’d either be Dior Diorshow New Look mascara or lip balm with SPF…just can’t decide!

  8. Ilia says

    I would take moisturizer with spf! Great Giveaway, I love Aveda Hair Products and want to try their makeup.

  9. Kassie Harris says

    I think I would have to take coconut oil. It’s such a great oil to use for so many different reasons. It has natural sun protection and can be used as a cleanser, moisturizing, hair mask, lip balm, and so many other things!

  10. Jessica Poston says

    Coconut oil! I MUST have lip balm and I use coconut oil for that, as well as moisturizer,

  11. Ashley B says

    I love the Aveda Petal essence face accent because it would give me a natural flush of color to my otherwise pale complexion! Also following you on Pinterest: Ashinnewyork

  12. Mechele Johnson says

    Bare Minerals powder foundation! Does the Kabuki brush count as a second item? Haha!

  13. Stephanie Harris says

    I would have to take a product that can multi task as a blush, lip, and eye color :)

  14. betty says

    a deserted island — huge bottle of a moisturizing sunblock. Do they make any that also is a bug repellant?

  15. Christina Y. says

    I would take my favorite Skin 79 BB cream with me! All the great benefits like SPF and more in it. (:

    I would take the moisturizing lip color. I follow you on Pintrest and like you on faceboolk

  17. Angela s says

    I can’t go anywhere without lipgloss or lipstick so I would have to have it and the Nourish-Minttm Rehydrating Lip Glaze sounds like it would be the best take along for me.

  18. Nicole M. says

    Hopefully the island has coconut trees so that would give me 1 beauty trick in the bag. But I’d have to take with me some baking soda.:)

  19. Ronda Patrick says

    My one Beauty Item would be a lip gloss, after all……. your lips would be so dry on an island! : )

  20. Barbara Blanton says

    I would want my lip gloss! For a little color and my lips seem to always be dry :)

  21. Sandra says

    I don’t know if it would count as a beauty item, but I would take sunscreen, if not it would have to be a tinted lip balm!

  22. Holly S. says

    I would take mascara for sure. Thanks for the great giveaway! These colors are gorgeous!

  23. Dianna Thomas says

    Well if I got stuck on some I island I wouldn’t be caught without Nourish-mint lip color—–thanks for the giveaway
