It’s not only Emily that has been bitten by the Vapour obsession! I’m head-over-heels in love with the Elixir Gloss! It is without a doubt my new favorite gloss. Vapour’s gloss has that very shiny, reflective, glassy look that I often crave in a lip gloss. Of course, since it’s a very glossy gloss, it doesn’t have quite the same staying power that the Siren Lipstick has, but that is fine by me because I love reapplying it throughout the day–it tastes like a sophisticated tropical cocktail, which makes me want to go on a beach vacation. The color that Emily and I blessedly received to test out is a neutral rosy pink called Hush.
The picture above makes the color looks a lot paler than it does in person (online the color looks like one of those beige colors that only runway models can wear, but when a real person wears it, it looks like they’re outfitting themselves for a morgue). In real life the shade is a very sheer rose that I think would look flattering on any skin tone. For my next gloss purchase, I’m thinking I want to try out either Hypnotic–a deep vibrant red, or Sultry–a coppery coral. The cost of this gloss isn’t exactly a bargain at $20, but like Emily said, it’s comparable to the other big players in the cosmetics industry like MAC and Bobbi Brown. Plus, just like Vapour’s lipstick, the gloss is 100% natural (70% of which is organic!), which is imperative when you’re choosing a lip product–do you really want to be eating a bunch of chemicals and synthetic materials? If you are interested in going green with your beauty routine, lip products are the #1 place to start, in my mind!
