Natural & Organic Lipsticks from Au Naturale for Fall 2018
I am so not ready for fall, but at least my makeup bag is! Au Naturale sent me a sneak peek of their new fall colors for lips that are meant to be mixed and matched to create unique combinations.
Au Naturale Fall 2018: Dimensional Duos
AU NATURALE FALL 2018:
There are four new lipstick shades:
- Grace – neutral pink mauve
- Ambition – warm toasted rose
- Charm – neutral plummy berry
- Spirit – warm caramel beige
Spirit is my kind of fall color – it reminds me of pumpkin spice latte, a quintessential seasonal drink. The formula is smooth, rich, and buttery, and the color pay off is the best among the four. It looks more orange on me than it does in the tube, probably because of my olive undertone.
Grace is neutral as neutrals get, I think everyone should have at least one lipstick in this shade in their collection. It’s a timeless classic that pretty much suits everyone and goes with everything [similar shade to UD Naked]. With that said, if you already own something like this, I don’t think you need a dupe. Unless of course your goal is to replace conventional makeup with cleaner, natural products.
Ambition is warm burnished red, which is also very fall-like because it reminds me of the color of red maple leaves. It looks much prettier on the lips than it does in the arm swatch.
Charm was surprisingly my personal favorite! Because it initially applies sheer I can either make it look natural or build up the opacity for a bolder, more vampy look. It’s a very beautiful plummy berry color, and it’s probably going to be my everyday go-to in the fall.
Swatches from L to R: Spirit, Grace, Ambition, Charm.
I heard that in the past Au Naturale lipsticks felt a bit dry, but according to a recent comment on the brand’s Instagram they recently reformulated them a little and now the formula is creamier and smoother than before. I can’t comment on the past formula, but the current lipsticks feel nice and balmy. They don’t look too bad on my permanently chapped lips either. The longevity on all four is pretty standard for creamy lipsticks – about 2-3 hours sans eating or drinking before you need to touch up.
Au Naturale Fall 2018 custom lipstick color: Charm + Grace topped with Spirit
Here’s an extra swatch for you demonstrating the custom shade I created by mixing Charm and Grace as a base, with a bit of Spirit in the middle of the lip and cupid’s bow area. Afterward I lightly patted the lips with a napkin in an attempt to get a matte look. The napkin absorbed the shiny butters so the effect was more of a matte metallic. It made my lips look parched so I guess I’ll stick with the first one, lol! 🙂
Use my personal code GLAM15 for 15% off sitewide; it’s valid on the new collection too! Be sure to check out the Last Call section as well, I spotted some really cute discounted pencils and eye shadows. Au Naturale also offers samples, which is helpful if you aren’t sure about the shades, especially when buying foundation and concealer.
