Green Room Thursdays — Catch “The Vapors” With Vapour Organic Beauty
Last winter, I gave you lovelies an introduction to Vapour Organic Beauty, a new brand or color cosmetics developed by renowned makeup artist Eric Sakas with certified organic, botanical ingredients. At the time, I was particularly excited about the Aura Multi-Use Blush, a 100% natural and 70% organic color stick that rolls right onto skin and can be blended to achieve a natural glow along cheeks. If you’re a fan of products like the NARS Mutliple, you’ll appreciate the way the Aura glides right onto skin, infusing it with skin-soothing ingredients like sunflower oil and lotus extract, while delivering a pop of natural-looking color.
Recently, I had the chance to try the Aura Multi-Use Radiant Blush, an extension of the original Aura that packs way more shimmer, with tiny mica particles that capture and reflect light. I had a chance to try the Charisma color and was instantly drawn to the magenta-ish color, with its burst of white and light pink particles. When you blend it in and the color softens a bit, you’re left with dewy fresh cheeks coated with a sheer, peony-like pink hue, making it look like you’re blushing ever so coyly.
Another new release (and a must-have in your makeup bag): the VapourBeauty.com, an all-over, roll-on illuminating, iridescent cream color that can be applied to key areas of the body in order to contour your silhouette. By gliding it onto areas that you want to accentuate, making them shimmer under the light, you can cleverly streamline your figure. I love using the Halo Body Spotlight along the collarbones when I’m wearing a bustier or strapless top (and especially if I’m wearing my hair up an really trying to flaunt my neck and decolletage). There’s something so sexy about a woman’s collarbone area and, with this easy-to-use product, you can make them all the more enticing. The main color, Moonlight, is a golden seashell-like shade with peachy, sunny undertones. This really is a multi-tasker since you can use it in the most innovative of ways (one of my special tricks: applying a bit along the nape of the neck when I’m wearing a dress that’s cut rather low along the back. If your legs are looking like alabaster pillars, you can also apply the Halo Body Spotlight to give them an instant boost, rolling the product all the way from your knees to your shins. Unlike body bronzers and mousses that tend to stain clothing and which are then impossible to wash out, the Halo Body Spotlight won’t ruin your preciosu garments, making it all the more worthy of the halo name.
Lastly, there’s the VapourBeauty.com, which features a unique castor oil and beeswax co-polymer devised without the use of any harmful chemicals or processes. This co-polymer makes the gloss a hydrating, soothing product, so that you won’t have to fret about lips becoming chapped, scaly, or flaky. Lemon balm, myrrh, and antioxidant-rich goji berry, acai, and green tea extract work to further replenish, moisturize, and protect lips. The gloss is available in five shades of sheer color, ranging from Vivid (a shimmering hot pink) to Pout (a caramel-tinged flesh tone).
As its name suggests, the Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss is billed as having a “lip plumping” effect, but unlike so many products that promise to deliver Angelina-worthy lips, this gloss doesn’t inflate your lips but rather restores them to their most supple and natural form. The end result is way more classy and demure — plus, there’s no scary, excessive tingling since the ingredients are 100% natural. this version of the Elixir glosses is also an improvement from the tubes which were first released since the applicator brush makes the process much more streamlined and mess-free.
Pictured below, you’ll find swatches of all three of these products.
