This past week I discovered an all-vegan, all-natural, organic, new-to-me lippie line – Axiology.
My first impression upon receiving a few of their products in the mail: Oh Em EFFING G – gorrrrgeous packaging. Stunning. Lots of lovely gold. *SWOON* That aside, the lipstick tubes are unlike any I’ve ever experienced – you simply push the bottom of the tube up, the lipstick pops out, and then you twist the lipstick up. Genius. No need to worry about your lipstick cap spontaneously popping off in your makeup bag or purse.
Axiology founder, Ericka Rodriguez (who obvi has impeccable taste and class), created this beautiful line of lip colors in practically every luscious shade your heart could desire.
I got to sample these beauts:
Attitude – a soft matte, bright pink with coral undertones and light shimmer
Fundamental – a bright cream-based matte red with dark tones, sparkle and shine
Desire -a light and subtle glossy purple (I was afraid this was gonna be über dark and gothy, but it’s actually quite delicate and great for everyday wear)
Now, let’s talk formula! These lippies apply smoothly, are buildable, long lasting, super moisturizing, and chock full of some of my favorite skin lovin’ oils and butters.
Ingredients: Organic Candelilla Wax, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Mango Butter, Organic Avocado Butter, Organic Grape Seed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Sweet Orange Oil; May Contain: Iron Oxide, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet.
Also mention-worthy: Axiology’s lipstick boxes are recycled and ethically sourced by a women-run operation in Bali, Indonesia.
So to recap, Axiology = gorgeous, eco and socially conscious packaging, moisture-rich formulas, and beautiful colors. These lippies may have a higher price point ($27) depending on your go-to brands, but the price is well worth it for the quality of ingredients and overall fancitude.
