Vapour Organic Beauty Siren Lipstick in Knockout and Holiday Review

Vapour3-1

Since my green beauty journey started, I’ve been lusting after makeup from the brand, Vapour Organic Beauty. Known for their top performing foundations, primers, lipstick and cheek tints, I’ve been waiting for the day I could indulge myself with some Vapour goodies. During a recent promotion, I picked up two Siren Lipsticks; one for myself and one for my mom.  If there’s one beauty habit I picked up from my mom, it’s her love of lipstick. I’d been trying to get Mom to switch to cleaner lip products since I tossed out my old lipstick. After I relentlessly told her about all the nasty things in her beloved products and the dangers in using them, she posed me with the challenge of finding a clean lipstick that performed as well as her dirty favorites. Well, let’s just say I think I’ve found a winner!

I chose the color, Knockout for my mom and for myself, Holiday, a newly released lip color. Knockout seems to be a popular color out of the vast spectrum offered by Vapour Organic Beauty and the fact that it’s a classic, rich red means it’s a necessity for every lipstick-lover. My mom loved how moisturizing and long-lasting the Siren Lipstick formula was and the color looked gorgeous on her naturally, pigmented lips. She said the initial scent was a bit fruity for her liking but noticed it faded with time (I didn’t notice much scent). In the end, I get giddy seeing her wearing the color every day and enjoying it! (I win!) She now loves wearing Knockout everyday for a versatile and bold lip color.

Note: The majority of Vapour Organic’s lip products do contain carmine though some colors formulated without the ingredient are noted on the brand’s website.

Holiday, is a sheer berry, mauve color that is perfect for the fall. I’d been searching  for a  clean lipstick to replace my  beloved Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. Yes, a Revlon Lip Butter. Not the cleanest product, but the color was a perfect matte, plum tint that I wore everyday and have since been searching for a clean equivalent. Vapour Organic’s Siren Lipstick in Holiday is a sheer, deep mauve-purple that have put an end to my Sugar Plum daydreams. Holiday is buildable in color, is subtle but pigmented and the formula is long-lasting and moisturizing on my lips. (Holiday looks a bit pinker in this picture.) This lip color does not contain carmine. This is now what I use everyday for a pinky-plum, my-lips-but-better color!

Siren is made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments and vitamins. Siren is designed to protect lips from moisture loss and environmental assault. Siren’s botanical infusion contains hydrating Myrrh, Rose Buds, healing Lemon Balm, antioxidant Pomegranate, soothing Jojoba Oil and essential fatty acid-rich Camilina Oil. Siren is a long wearing lipstick and lip conditioner in one amazing chemical free formula.

Each Siren Lipstick is $22 online at Vapour Organic Beauty. Ingredients vary slightly depending on color so check the website for more information.
