Eco-Chic Beauty Must-Haves: Vapour Beauty

When you do what I do, you get invitations to see the newest product that claims eco-friendly properties, skincare benefits and the best packaging on the planet. But seeing and experiencing is believing with eco-friendly prestige cosmetics line, Vapour Beauty: it’s the real deal.

There are two things that make this company a very different story for those of us who cover beauty. The first is that the products use Certified Organic and safe food grade ingredients as well as botanicals and blends of anti-oxidants found naturally in plant oils and butters, which makes it truly organic. The other is the creative force they have behind the brand, the amazing Eric Sakas, who was the original co-founder of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, one of the gold standards in the beauty industry for their cutting-edge products and high-grade formulations. The result is a truly organic beauty line that can back up their claims and delivers high-quality beauty products that really work and look amazing.

Best of all, people: everything in the line (and I do mean everything) is either in tube or stick form. As in, wipe or swipe and go! Not only is it organic, it’s FAST. Swipe, blend, repeat if necessary and leave the house. Those of us who attended the demo were amazed. This new prestige beauty line is quick, easy-to-use and good for you. This makes it an official FSB must-have.

I love everything in the line (and wear it often) but I would strongly suggest that you pick up their Stratus Instant Skin Perfector ($44, shown at top), which is basically a moisturizer and luminizer in a stick. Most of us who don’t wear foundation wear this alone but under their foundation, your skin looks truly even and luminous. Speaking of foundation, I don’t normally wear any but I love their Atmosphere Luminous Foundation ($38) for when I do decide to glam out – the formulation is beautiful and it’s one of the first formulas I don’t immediately want to scratch off minutes after I apply it. The list of the products go on and I recommend them all, including their Mesmerize Eye Color ($16) which goes on like a watercolor stick and gives amazing pigment for you to build on from day to night. Blush, lip gloss, lip stick – whatever you need, they’ve got it except mascara, which is coming later.

Because they know FSB subscribers love good cosmetics, they’re hooking you up: you will get a free Lux Organic Lip Conditioner (a $16 value), which I use religiously to condition and soften my lips all day! Just enter “freelip-fashion” on their site before you check out as the coupon code. You’d better hurry, though: this fabulous code expires on August 24th!

If you’re looking for amazing eco-friendly beauty, this organic cosmetics line is the real deal. Good for your body and quick as the flick of a stick, Vapour Beauty will have you looking gorgeous and the only footprint you have to worry about leaving on the Earth is heel marks from your fabulous stilettos.
