Vapour Beauty Siren Lipstick | Review

Vapour Beauty Siren Lipstick | Review

Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr. It’s so beautiful!

The lipstick is a perfect natural pink shade that has great pigmentation. It has a demi-matte/satin finish and is comfortable and hydrating without feeling slippery or oily.

With out a doubt, I would purchase more shades!

What are your favorite Vapour products? Do you know of any must have non-toxic lippies? Let us know in the comments.

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lips | Review

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Lips | Review

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques offers many wonderful, natural, and organic beauty products. These two lip options are nothing short of just that.

(Read my reviews on their foundationeye makeup, and cleanser.)

For me, neutral pink lip colors are my go to lip colors. They are easy to wear, aren’t too bold and have sweet, famine tint to them. This lipstick in the shade Peluche is just that. It is neutral with a slight red-pink shade. On my light skin, it works especially well as a Fall/Winter nude.

Its demi-matte finish is comfortable and moisturizing. It has an average wear time. It does wear away when eating or drinking but I think comfort can be taken in the fact that Lauren Brook makes all of their products from harmless, natural and organic ingredients. Unlike many other lipsticks, you don’t have to worry about ingesting a whole array of illegible synthetic ingredients. EWG scores it a beautiful 1 out of 10.

I don’t often reach for lip glosses, but on occasion, when I’d like a pretty, subtle color and something with a touch of hydration on the lips, a gloss is good to have on hand. And better yet a gloss that has been rated a 2 by EWG.

This purple shade, Candied Plum, isn’t as loud as it looks. It provides a very pretty magenta wash with a hint of micro-shimmer.

One feature across the whole brand that really stands out to me is the ability to order any product in a sample size (like the lipgloss I have pictured above). It can be a little scary ordering makeup online. The sample sizes are a wonderful idea to get a feel for the color and formulation of each product!

These products are comfortable, quality and also healthier options.

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good makes wonderful, organic, and natural skin care products. Their products are high quality, effective and safe.

All Good’s Lip Balms are very buttery and hydrating. When applied, it melts right into the skin, getting to work quickly to moisturize dry lips. The two pictured are Original and Spearmint. Both are great, and there are other scents and even tints available.

Coconut Oil Skin Food is versatile and very handy. I’ve used it as a moisturizer, a carrier oil for essential oils, and even an oil cleanser. I really like the few scent options All Good has available. The two I have pictured are plain coconut as well as lemongrass. Lavender is also available. The lemongrass scent is very sweet. For comparison, it is sweeter that Young Living’s lemongrass essential oil.

Progressing through the drier, winter months my skin feels tight and dehydrated. Body lotions are a must have for this time of year. The body lotion from All Good is so creamy and moisturizing. The scents coconut, lavender, and lemongrass are all wonderful. But my favorite is the lavender. It is so sweet and flowery.

Sunscreen is always important to have on hand. This sport sunscreen is a great non-toxic choice. I am going to remember this for when the summer hits and I spend more time in the hot rays.

All Good products are just that…all good. I loved every single one that I tried. I plan to repurchase the body lotion in the lavender scent first. That was my favorite.

Are you familiar with the All Good brand? Do you have any favorites? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

Portland Bee Balm | Review

Portland Bee Balm | Review

It is the beginning of December. Here in New York, we have had a drop in temperature and have seen a few snow falls. Like many, when the chilly months hit, my skin gets dried out. I especially feel it in my lips. Portland Bee Balm has been a crucial part of both my morning and night time skin care routines.

Portland Bee balm has an amazing texture. It is hydrating without being greasy or slippery. After applying the lip balm my lips feel healthy all day.

I love both the unscented and the mint scented balms. The unscented has a slightly nutty smell to it, but it’s hardly noticeable. The mint smells just like my favorite peppermint tea. A lot of people won’t use lip products with mint because of the cool, tingly feeling it can cause. This mint balm isn’t like that. It has just enough peppermint essential oil in it to give a nice sweet scent, but not enough to irritate the skin.

The ingredients are so simple and clean: bee’s wax, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, and peppermint oil in the mint balm. All of their ingredients are local to their headquarters in the NorthWestern United States.

Not only is the product incredible, but the packaging that it comes in is beautiful! The plastic tube is wrapped in a thin piece of wood with the Portland Bee Balm logo burned into it. It feels great to hold in your hands and to apply. It’s also wonderful to look at.

I’ve loved using both of these and would repurchase in a heartbeat. If I had to choose my favorite, I would have to go with the mint. But if mint isn’t your cuppa tea (pun intended?), the unscented is beautiful as well.

What is your favorite winter lip care product? Please share in the comments!

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Candy Glam Palette | Review

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Candy Glam Palette | Review

I have been wanting to try some of Tanya’s Products for ages! Unfortunately, the ones that I am most interested in, like the nail polishes, can’t be shipped to the U.S from the UK.

When I saw that she released this palette as part of her Christmas collection, I thought it would be a great way to try out a couple of different products at once. I was right! It is great!

This palette is so beautiful! It has great colors that can easily be used to make many lovely looks for holiday parties.

The quality is amazing! I can’t believe this is a drugstore product. The shadows, blush, and bronzer are all so pigmented, buttery and blendable. The lip gloss is very comfortable and it feels moisturizing as well.

Unfortunately, this is limited edition, but parts of this palette can be found on Tanya’s corner of feelunique.com. Things are always coming and going from stock on the feel unique website.

Have you tried any of Tanya’s products? What is your favorite?

E.L.F. Matte Lip Color | Review

E.L.F. Matte Lip Color | Review

e.l.f. Matte Lip Color is one of my favorite lipsticks, and it is only $3! They are skinny so it is easy to apply. The formula is very nice; creamy, moisturizing and comfortable. They do have a matte finish but they are not drying at all. I believe e.l.f. is starting to introduce some new shades. I am very excited about that! I want them all! Ha ha ha!

All of the shades are so beautiful and have amazing pigmentation!

The end of the stick has a sharpener on it so the tip can be kept at a sharp, precise point.

What is your favorite E.L.F. Product? I would love to hear in the comments!

ColourPop Lippie Pencil Review

ColourPop Lippie Pencil Review

ColourPop  just passed their first birthday. (Happy Birthday!) They are doing very well! They have been so busy releasing new products what seems like every three and a half seconds! I have loved every single thing I have tried from them and I am excited about new releases! These lip pencils are my favorite lip product ever! And they are only $5! All of their products are really affordable.

Lippie Pencils are very long lasting, not sticky at all, very well pigmented (some of them almost too pigmented) and they do not dry out the lips although they do of course have a matte finish. These are very easy to wear with other lip products as well! To make the color last even longer I like to dust my lips with the foundation brush or sponge I had just used, apply the lip pencil and then set with a powder. I don’t own very many at this point but I love them so much that I plan to own every single color eventually! Even the wacky colors like the green or the gold!

Swatches:

From top to bottom the ones I currently own are:

All of these have matching Lippie Stix of various finishes (Satin, Cream, Glossy, Hyper-Glossy, Matte, and Pearlized).

I recommend these and all of the other products from colour pop to anyone and everyone! This is an amazing company with amazing products and prices!
