How to Use Aveda's Newest Fall Lip Colors

If there is one decade that beauty has been trying to bring back for the last couple years, its the 90s. You’ve read our blog posts about it, seen it on A-List celebrities, and even tried it yourself in one way or another. Nineties beauty is back again, and Aveda just joined the bandwagon in a super chic way.


The new collection is called Sublime Spirit, which already gives way to an air of 90s grandeur and inspiration. And yes, we are also thinking of the popular 90s punk rock band. Either way you look at it, this autumn collection can emulate 90s grunge or 90s glam.


Two things to notice in this collection are the extreme lip colors. Each stick is on either end of the light spectrum. The darker Blackberry shade is dramatic and can be worn with equally dramatic smokey eyes or with a simpler naked eye for a sophisticated look. Just be sure to use a lip liner before applying this color. The collection comes with Purple Sage that will help deepen the lipstick even more.


The other lip color is much more subtle in a “my lips but better” type of way. Sandstone is a nude with a hint of pink. Copy the runway looks from this seasons New York Fashion Week and wear this color with a nude eye as well. Or darken your eyeliner and layer on the lashes for a chic look. Add a touch of the Desert Earth lip glaze on top for extra shine and dimension.
