Vapour Organic Beauty now has a carmine free line

If you know about Vapour Organic Beauty then you know that this is an independent brand founded by three people who only create and sell what they believe in. It’s made entirely from pure minerals, essential oils and organic plant ingredients. Many consumers that are interested in Vapour Organic Beauty only use cruelty free products and vegan lines. Carmine is a beetle that is found in South America. The beetle is a parasite that lives on the prickly pear cactus. Their dye is used in clothing dye, food dye, and in cosmetics as well as other items. The beetle is basically boiled to remove the color. Knowing this, it makes sense why many want to only use carmine free products.

Vapour Organic Beauty has a big line of carmine free cosmetics and they sent 5 of their newest ones for us to share with you. These glosses, blush sticks and eyeshadow were newly added to Vapour in the spring. You’re going to want them all.

Vapour has created some fabulous Aura Multi-Use Blush ($36) sticks that I’ve reviewed before. The two new shades are fabulous and I can’t get enough of them. I love a cream blush so these make me very happy.  I have normal skin that is only oily in the t-zone. The Vapour Beauty Blush sticks work beautifully on me. They glide on, are easy to blend and last well. I like to have a thin layer of translucent powder on my cheeks on the days that I use a cream blush since that’s going to make them blend better and last longer.

Cheeky Multi-Use is a soft cool pink that looks great on a cool skintone as a blush but also as a lip color. You can use these sticks on your eyes too. Charm Multi-Use is a warmer, peachier tone. Vapour describes it as “peaches & cream”.

Vapour also makes cream eyeshadows called Mesmerize Eye Color ($20) or Mesmerize Eye Shimmer. This is my first experience using their cream eye color and I have the shade Ace. This is a beautiful plum tone brown described by Vapour as “smoky plum”. It’s a very subtle shade that can be used alone or with other shadows for more definition. I use an eyeshadow primer with this so it doesn’t crease on me but I think without one it would probably crease and/or fade. I apply it with my finger and then use a taklon brush to smooth it out.

If you love lipgloss then you need to know about Vapour’s collection, Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss ($22). The two new carmine free shades are Flutter and Tickle and both make my heart flutter and tickle my fancy. These are cool toned so they work best for me with Cheeky blush stick. There’s a slight sweet fragrance to them at first and the plumping action is non-stinging. You’ll notice your lips but you won’t feel any discomfort. Elixir Lip Gloss contains Vapour’s unique lip-specific nourishing blend of healing ingredients such as vitamin-rich Lecithin, Jojoba Oil, restorative Lemon Balm, and antioxidant Green Tea.

Tickle is the lighter of the two and could be considered to be a pink nude shade. Vapour describes it as a sugary sweet shimmery pink. When they say shimmer though, it’s not glitter, it’s a luminous quality that makes it look shimmery. Flutter is more pigmented and is described as a “multi-dimensional mauve with a hint of pink” and also “grown up sexy pink”. This is a non-sticky formula that feels very comfortable on because it’s so hydrating. My lips just feel soft when I wear these and never gooey.
