I've wanted to talk about Axiology lipsticks for quite some time now and today is finally the day. I have so many blog posts in mind, but too little time to write down every single one. Sorry to those of you who are expecting a review, I will do them eventually. But now let's talk about some lippies! :) Axiology is a luxury vegan lipstick line and their lipsticks are natural, organic and ethical. Each lipstick comes in a stunning matte golden tube which opens by clicking on the bottom. Love! These gold beauties are packaged in a triangle shaped boxes, which are made with 100% handmade recycled paper. The paper used in their boxes is collected from all around Bali, Indonesia - from hotels, offices and households - and is taken to a small factory. It’s then boiled down to a pulp, laid out to the sun to dry, and finally folded and decorated by hand. Amazing! Besides the fact that they are made with beautiful natural, organic and vegan ingredients, they are also palm oil free. That’s why Axiology is partnering with organizations, like the Orangutan Foundation International, that heal the planet and save our wild animals. Yes, yes, yes to their philosophy. <3

Axiology lipsticks are creamy, not chalky at all, they apply beautifully and have a good pigmentation that is buildable. They are quite moisturizing, especially in the beginning. One negative thing is that they are not very long lasting. Now, let's start with the shades I own.
The lightest of the three is Philosophy*. For both bold romantics and wall-flowers, Philosophy’s ultra-smooth pink blends with a twist of salmon—bringing to life even the shyest of lips. Like a pair of well-loved ballet slippers, this shade is soft, silky, and just-a-touch sweet. Very soft pink, pinky/salmon shade. It's quite light, sometimes even too light for my skin tone. I love the shade when I look at it in the bullet, it's beautiful and romantic, but on me it's not the best shade out there. Maybe my skin is too yellow to pull it off completely, or I'm just not used to shades this light. Honestly though, I kinda like it on the photo bellow, but in real life I'm not the biggest fan. :)
Identity* is inspired by the rush of peony season. It is a glittering cool pink with a lavender lean. This dreamy hue is perfect for a look that needs a subtle touch of off-beat color - while staying classic and collected. Like Philosophy, this is one unique shade. Pinkish-violet shade with a touch of shimmer that gives quite a shine to the lips. Not matte at all.
Noble* is a succulent, hybrid peach-pink tone that keeps lips looking glossy and fresh. Supremely wearable for a first date or an interview, this color highlights your smile in a classy, honeyed glow. Noble is orangy-red shade with a touch of fuschia shimmer. A beautiful and super wearable shade.
The Axiology lipsticks are absolutely gorgeous and you definitely need one. I got mine from The Green Jungle Beauty Shop, where you can get 10% off with discount code "Jana", and Reina Organics, where you can use discount code "LOVELINESS10" and also get 10% off. :)
