Vapour Organic Beauty Review

Organic makeup has come a very long way in recent years thanks to high quality products from companies like Vapour, who is proud to announce the launch of their new beauty collection for summer and early fall.

Vapour Organic Beauty has an amazing collection of luxurious products to naturally enhance your entire face, including skin, lips, eyes and cheeks. I have used Vapour in the past and was quite impressed with the quality and performance of these products so I was very excited to try the new collection.

I don’t wear a lot of makeup as I prefer to naturally enhance my own skin and features. I am also very conscious about only using cosmetics that are non-toxic. When I use Vapour Organic Beauty, I can feel confident that I am not applying chemicals, artificial colorants or dyes or petroleum based products to my delicate skin. Instead, Vapour uses only organic, food grade ingredients, fruit extracts, essential oils and mineral pigments.

My favorite product in the new collection is the Siren Lipstick. My lips are the one area of my face that I like to use pure pigments and rich colors. It has been very frustrating for me to try to find an organic/natural lipstick that provides long lasting coverage…………until now! Siren Lipstick is 70% Certified Organic and 30% naturally based and is available in 16 pretty colors that are flattering to all skin tones. In fact, I didn’t think the HINT shade would originally be flattering on me but surprisingly it was quite lovely and is now my favorite daily lipstick. Siren lipsticks are also created using pure plant based ingredients so it also feels like a lip conditioner. There was no dryness or chapping that is often a common side effect of traditional long-wearing lip products. It also glides on beautifully and is not sticky at all. My husband is usually hesitant to kiss me if I am wearing lipstick but he didn’t have any negative comments when I was wearing Siren Lipstick……the ultimate compliment from my fellow!

For cheeks that appear to light up from within, Aura Multi-Use Radiant Blush and Bronzers are wonderful products that can be used to naturally stain cheeks, lips and eyes. This is the one product that I use every single day. As a busy mom, I often head out to run errands and realize that my face looks washed out. With a few quick strokes of this product that I keep in my bag at all times, I feel more polished and confident in my appearance. The colors are very flattering and are designed to compliment many skin tones.

Eye shadows can contain a surprising number of chemicals but you won’t have to worry about that with Vapour Mesmerize Eye Colors. The pretty crème shades are very easy to apply, provide flattering colors to enhance the eyes and more importantly it is chemical free! I like that I don’t need to use an applicator because these stick shadows glide on effortlessly. It nourishes with “Vapour’s Eye Specific Infusion of anti inflammatory chrysanthemum, Eyebright herb and circulatory enhancing Horsetail herb.” I like to use these eye shadows to highlight my hazel eyes and the new colors Dream, Lyric and Sugar is very pretty and flattering.

The Trick Stick took a few practice sessions for me to get it right but once I did……WOW! It is a great way to highlight the brow bone, cheek bone and lips and I love how it gives me that “youthful glow” especially in photographs. It is no wonder that this product is a favorite among make-up artists.

At night, I love to apply the Lux Organic Lip Conditioner to my dry lips. When I wake up in the morning my lips are soft and smooth. Though my husband will deny this in public, I have “caught” him using this on his chapped lips too!

Another favorite is the Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss. Ladies, I promise you will LOVE this if you like to have soft, moist and voluptuous lips. It is simply amazing because it really does give volume to my lips without any chemicals. The color palette is soft and seems to enhance my own lip color with sheer mauve, burnt berry, cherry stain, peachy pink and warm nude. I absolutely love that it is not sticky at all but smooth and moisturizing. I am not usually a fan of lip gloss because I don’t like the feel of it but Vapour really hit the mark with this product…….I usually wear it alone during the day or over Siren Lipstick at night.

Halo Body Spotlight is a wonderful full body product created to help you feel sexy and confident for an evening out. I like that the stick form is easy to apply and the color was very pretty on my shoulder and décolleté. My husband commented that I looked “hot” on our date night and it made me feel great!

Saving the best for last, Stratus Soft Focus Instant Skin Protector is “a velvety variation of Vapour’s revolutionary original 3–in–1 moisturizer, primer and no-color foundation. Soft Focus balances all skin types, including combination and oily skin.” I personally love how natural this product is on my skin and it feels velvety soft and it gives a dewy finish. It goes on clear and can be worn with just a touch of blush and lipstick or as a primer under foundation. I can’t rave enough about this product…..it is a “must-have” for fall in my opinion!

Overall, I am so impressed with the Vapour Organic Beauty collection and was so excited to share my new treasures with you. It is wonderful to know that I will no longer have to compromise quality and performance for organic cosmetics. Vapour Organic Beauty products have been featured by Essence, Allure, Health and Lucky magazines and nominated for numerous awards.
