WEEKLY MUST-HAVE: Vapour Organics Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss
Here’s a funny story. I have this lip gloss in my bag and I use it on almost a daily basis. The color is magnificent – a sheer plumish hue – and the formula is perfect – just enough shine without the stickiness, and a pop of plumpness for an added bit of rad.
So, I’m exchanging emails with this awesome makeup artist, Eric Sakas, as I’m researching the exact brand of my new must-have lippy. Now, here’s where the story gets crazy: The brand that manufactures the Elixir lippy is called Vapour Organics. Eric Sakas is the CREATOR of Vapour Organic Beauty! How random is that!! I just emailed him gushing over my love for the lippy and my need to try every color in the range.
You know why I love the Elixir lippy, now let me tell you a bit about the colors. There are 12 (swatches below) and they run the color gamut from a baby pink to an earthy brown to a blood red. I am obsessed with the color Vivid (a sheer plum). I use it to make my lips about 2 shades darker than they are and saturated with shine – so that boys will want to kiss them!
As I mentioned, the formula is quite sheen with just the right amount of color, but if you want more boldness you can layer to your likeness (or on top of a favorite lipstick or lip stain).
The most important feature of this gloss is that it’s all natural, organic, in fact. Made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments & vitamins, this stuff is healthy for your lips, your body and the environment.
A word (or several…) from the company:
“Elixir rejuvenates lips with anti-oxidant rich Acai and Goji berries and ultra hydrating, vitamin rich Organic Lecithin and Jojoba oil. Elixir contains Vapour’s lip specific infusion of hydrating Myrrh, healing Lemon Balm, antioxidant Green Tea and anti-microbial Iceland Moss.”
You heard it here: this gloss will forever change your idea of a natural lip gloss. It’s SO good, it’s on par with MAC, NARS and Chanel (in fact, even less sticky than the big brands).
Now I’m off to try the other 11 colors in the range!
