Meg here! I’m just introducing Jeanasina’s post with the picture on the left. It’s pretty funny, from left to right, Olliebee, Greenie and Gem. You can see that the Vapour Lipstick that they tested all made it into their cosmetic purses. We were eating in Natick, MA at Legal Seafood and after dinner the girls started to apply their lips. I yelled “hold it!” Then I snapped a picture so you ladies could see that Vapour Lipstick was the go-to for three of my besties! Now on to Jeanasina’s review!
Hello all you lovely readers in Megtopia land! It’s Jeanasina here with a really great product to tell you about today!
There is a company called VAPOUR which makes organic beauty products made from food-grade Certified Organic ingredients that have been found to offer twice as much antioxidant potency as their conventional counterparts. VAPOUR’s Organic ingredients are rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals! One great quote I found on their website is this…”Our skin is our largest organ and what we put on it is absorbed into our bodies. We don’t need to add the toxic load that comes from chemically based cosmetics. We think of VAPOUR as nutrition for beautiful skin.” I have to tell you that in all the years I have been putting on creams and cosmetics, it never once dawned on me that it gets into your bloodstream through your skin! Talk about a scary realization! I guess I just always thought it sat on top of wherever you put it and that was it! I’m still learning new things!
The magic of VAPOUR began when Eric Sakas, a top makeup professional who worked side by side with the famed Kevyn Aucoin, and later, helped Philosophy develop their color line, was looking for perfect beauty products. Products not only beautiful, but good for you and the earth. His frustrating search found natural products that lacked performance or performance products that contained toxic ingredients. His exhaustive search finally led him to a remote New Mexico-based lab and a group of people who pushed the limits of green chemistry by pioneering healthy, non-toxic cosmetics that refused to compromise. Not only did he find a product with excellent performance and unique texture, but it was also made of certified organic ingredients and pure mineral pigments. With this company and Erik’s impressive 15-year career in the beauty industry, the perfect marriage of health and beauty was born.
I am wearing as I write this the VAPOUR Organic Beauty Siren Lipstick! In the Siren Lipsticks you encounter a mysterious hint of leafy herb with a bright fruity top note. I know I usually have a lot of personal opinions to spout about when I review things but the information on THIS company is really so riveting and important that I’m going to just quote them a lot!
Siren is a naturally long-wearing, moisturizing lipstick. It contains NO petroleum-based adhesives. Using a heat and vacuum based non-chemical process, 2 plant oils are combined to produce a glistening moisturizing shine. Siren is the most striking new advance in lipstick formulation! VAPOUR Siren Lipstick is made with 70% certified organic ingredients; the other 30% consists of natural mineral pigments and vitamins which are not available as certified organics. Each shade is supposed to work with all skin tones and designed to be layered creatively! There are no harmful chemicals to ingest by mouth or through the skin!

The lipstick color I have is Siren Hint #402. It’s got sort of an orange tint to it with golden overtones! It goes on my lips smoothly and leaves them feeling moist! It’s got color like lipstick but it goes on more like a soothing lip balm! How nice is that? If I press my lips together they feel really nicely humidified! The fragrance is sort of almost fruit like and the taste… well it’s a bit unusual (to me) but it also doesn’t have me trying to eat my own lips because of some fake over the top fruit taste!!
This tube of lipstick had only one down side for me. I have arthritis in my hands. Well, I have to tell you that I absolutely could NOT get this tube open because my hands are just too weak to grasp on enough and then have enough strength in them to pull the tube parts open! I almost gave up but then I got out my handy pliers (I have two pairs) and met with success. Now this probably won’t be the case with you since the majority of you are all so much younger than I am. However… it’s very reassuring to know that this lipstick will NEVER come open in my purse or pocket! Unfortunately this really was a difficult tube to pull open for this gnarly handed woman! I need to keep my arthritis in mind when I make purchases that require opening something using hand strength. Maybe companies should start recognizing old people and have a special ‘easy opening’ line of cosmetics just for us grannies! Speaking of VAPOUR… I almost got a case of the old fashioned ‘vapors” when I couldn’t get the lipstick open! I believe the two words are pronounced the same!
Everything I have read on the Internet about this company and their products has been full of high praise! I feel really good about the lipstick I have on right now by VAPOUR and I feel good about saying this company really is creating products that are actually good for people! There are 417 people that are signed up as friends to the VAPOUR Organic Beauty facebook page! Based on their comments, VAPOUR’s foundation sounds like it’s positively out of this world great!
Have any of you tried any of the VAPOUR line of products?
