I feel like I just discovered the Loch Ness Monster, I was beginning to think that it would never happen but it has! THANK THE LORD IT HAS! I've found it....a pigmented, naturally derived lipstick! Courtesy of Vapour Organic Beauty. The Siren range of lipsticks(£18) from Vapour use a natural formulation, that is long lasting as well as moisturising free from harmful chemicals that we often eat (yeah I eat my lippy!)
"Siren is designed to protect lips from moisture loss and environmental assault. Siren's NEW botanical infusion contains hydrating Myrrh, Rose buds, healing Lemon Balm, antioxidant Pomegranate, soothing Jojoba oil and essential fatty acid rich Camilina oil"
I have Bold a classic deep red, almost burgundy, It feels amazing on, and has a slight gloss. Honestly it was love at first swatch! the colour payoff is very good, especially for a natural lipstick and it's great if you want a red lip but don't want to go down the pillar box red route. This shade would suit most skin tones, all the Siren Lipsticks have been chosen to enhance and complement your skin tone. Vapour also have a range of foundation with around 12 shades 5 of which are suitable for brown skin (thank you Vapour!) Vapour Organic Beauty is on the pricey side at £18 for a lipstick however it's just £3.50 more than a MAC lipstick. Personally I'd rather pay a little more for a kinder product (That being said I am turning into a natural ingredient megalomaniac)
I was sent a whole bunch of vapour goodness from Being Content another great find for getting hold of sought after natural and organic products. Being Content concentrates on the luxury and quality of high performance brands such as Vapour Organic Beauty which prides itself on using certified organic ingredients, being completely transparent in all aspects of the brand and being ethical and sustainable (Learn More Here) I'll be working my way through the range and will share my thought over the next week or so.
