Axiology is an all Vegan lipstick brand providing ethically formulated and sourced, hydrating lipstick. I ordered a few samples from one of my favorite natural beauty boutiques Revescent.com and they were nice enough to send three extra. The Axiology lipsticks have a medium opacity and moisturizing texture and a soft shine finish. Below I've swatched six shades from Axiology.
Intrinsic is a shade I did not expect to like but it's actually come to be my favorite, it is a high shine pearl shimmer that is sheer enough to allow some of you natural lip to show through making it a very universal shade for all skin tones. I think it's high frost definitely makes it a statement lip and I love the way it worked with my ultra highlighted makeup for the day.
Philosophy is a soft warm pink with a just a touch of a peach undertone, on my skin tone it comes off as a pale baby pink. I like this shade and I think it is best suited to be worn with a fresh and natural makeup with blush instead of bronzer.
Dimension is a taupe-brown that is very on trend, it's a shade that I would definitely wear a lip liner with but I really like the shade it self. The lighter your skintone the more dramatic it will look but it is a must have nude for deep skin tones.
Axiology The Goodness
My lips but better, the tone of this shade very closely matches my natural lip color and gives my lips a perfectly almost naked finish.
Theory is stunning, a warm orange-brown, it's the kind of lip color I never knew I always wanted. Great rich nude for dark skin tones.
I am quite pleased with the samples I've tried of the Axiology. In a market currently over saturated with ultra matte, opaque liquid lipsticks Axiologys moisturizing and wearable lipsticks feel like a breath of fresh air. It is so hard to choose my favorites from the shades I've sampled but Intrinsic, Philosophy and Theory are among the top but I also really like Dimension.
