Vapour Spring 2010

Vapour-Organic-Beauty

As you may have previously read, I’m a big fan of Vapour Organic Beauty. All of Vapour’s products are 100% natural and chemical free with a minimum of 70% certified organic ingredients. And Vapour products work! They’re a high-performance line that utilize a unique formulation that imparts a light-as-air texture while providing skin treatment benefits and rich mineral color.

I recently tested some of Vapour’s new spring/summer makeup line, specially formulated to perk up skin and create a fresh glow. First up, Siren Lip Adore in Joy. I love this stuff. Imagine the world’s best lip balm with a golden shimmer. That’s exactly what Siren Lip Adore is like! It’s a super sheer lippie with a gold shine that can be used alone or over a more pigmented lipstick to amp up the color and sparkle. It’s totally petroleum and chemical-free and contains 70% certified organic, food-grade ingredients. That’s important when it comes to lip products when you think about it because you wind up consuming a lot of that stuff! It contains a blend of Lemon Balm, Myrrh, anti-oxidant Green Tea. It smells amazing. So, ditch your boring lip balm and step it up with Siren Lip Adore. Your lips will thank you.  Price: $19.00

Um, how do you like my blurry pic of Solar Translucent Bronzer and Aura Shimmer Multi-Use Blush in Starlet? I’m going to try to take more pictures… Also, those flowers in the background are wildflowers I picked on our street. Aw.

Anyway! Solar Translucent Bronzer is the thicker tube on the right. It’s not just a bronzer, it’s also great for moisturizing the skin. It contains organic shea butter and sun-protecting antioxidants, although no SPF, so be sure to cover that base before you go outdoors. The shade I tested, Simmer is a rich, medium bronze, and it was a bit too dark for me. The bronzer comes in three shades: Simmer, Mirage, a pale gold good for fair skin, and Spicy, a clear, dark brown stain. I think the lightest color, Mirage, would have been better for me. In general, Solar Translucent Bronzer would be good for those that like cream bronzers instead of a powder. And a little goes a long way, so I could see this tube lasting all summer.  Price: $34.00

New for spring and summer, Vapour has five shimmering shades of their Multi-Use Blush. Perfect to compliment a (fake) tan! I test Aura Shimmer Multi-Use Blush in Starlet. It gives a great shimmery pop of color.  Price: $28.00
