We’re obsessed with Vapour Organic Beauty’sgorgeous colors and formulations!  Do you like multi-tasking cosmetics?  These are the ones for you!  Do you like organic cosmetics that actually have gorgeous formulations and beautiful colors?  Again, Vapour Organic Beautyare the cosmetics for you! 

These flawless beauty products impart a glow from within look.  Pure radiance and youthful vibrance is added to the skin.  If you are 32+ I would absolutely consider trying some of it.  The color application is effortless, blendable, natural, and radiant.  The colors are soft, wearable, contemporary and relevant. 

 

Here are my personal top faves from Vapour Organics:

ColorColor Color

Vapour Organic Beauty:  Aura Multi-Stain $28

Check out these super juicy colors! I softly dab a bit of this on the apples of my cheeks.  It gives me soft, radiant pink cheeks.  Fresh and young looking!  You can also use this multi-tasking beauty product on your lips (as a lip stain), and over primed eye lids for a hint of sheer color.  This baby one The Best of Beauty from Allure magazine in 2010.

 

 

Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment

ColorColorColorColorColor

Vapour Organic Beauty:  Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment $18

Light, whipped, shimmery and sheer!  Yum!!  I absolutely love these colors for Spring.  Who doesn’t want to wear these soft sheer colors this Spring and Summer?  They are ideal and I’ve been lusting after the soft green “Dream” in particular.  These barely-there colors are a sheer radiant veil of color to your eye lids.  Simply dreamy!

 Trick Stick


 

Vapour Organic Beauty:  Trick Stick $20

Need a hint of radiance on your cheek bones, forehead, nose, in the corner of your eyes, well, anywhere for that matter?  This is the product for you.  The colors are soft, sheer veils of radiance.  It creates a “lit from within look”. The Trick Stickis ideal for anyone who is missing their “glow”.  I like to keep this one in my purse for an instant “pick me up” to my makeup before happy hour.  It gives an instant refreshed look to my skin!

Vapour Organic Beauty Clarity Makeup Removing Cleansing Oil

Posted on 09/06/2011

 

Why has it been embedded in our brains from puberty onwards that oil is the cause of all our skin problems? I don't know about you but in my adolescence the word "oil" was the supposed cause of all my acne and many trips to the dermatologist. I looked at my shiny face in horror every morning and if I could just strip away all of it, my problems would be over.

Vapour Beauty Vernissage Nail Lacquer in People!

Posted on 03/02/2012

 

How can makeup that's organic and 100% recyclable be so good? Trust us, it can. In a world where cosmetic ingredients are slowly being looked at more heavily under a microscope for their purposes, Vapour Organic Beauty is leading the way in providing makeup that is literally worry free, both on an eco-conscious level as well as from a personal health standpoint. We have been praising these easy to wear and apply formulations that don't sacrifice color or longevity. My personal go-to has been the Aura Multi-Use Radiant Blush since I'm always in a hurry and I love having one product in my purse that will touch up my cheeks, eyes and lips. I'd been waiting for them to venture into nail lacquer so I was thrilled when we got the just launched Vapour Organic Beauty Vernissage 3 Free Nail Laquers in! It looks like Jessica Alba was too since Eternal was the perfect shade to match her lavender Gucci gown this awards show season. Featured in People magazine, this polish is long wearing and chip resistant, not to mention 3 Free which means it doesn't contain carcinogens. If lavender isn't your color then there's a fabulous gray option in Trance!

Pros and Cons of Oil Make-Up Removers

Posted on 04/27/2012

Vapour Organic Beauty Pros and Cons of Oil Make-Up Removers

As a teen, you learn some basic skin care rules: Wash your face every day, chocolate will give you pimples, pizza grease will give you pimples (especially pepperoni pizza), and anything oily that touches your face will give you pimples. While somewhat misguided, some ladies continue to think oil is a perfect complexion’s enemy. Vapour Organic Beauty, however, proves that oil can actually help give you skin that’s glowing and beautiful.

The Science behind Zits

Blame acne vulgaris (a common skin condition), not oil, for your pimples. Pimples generally occur in areas where you have sebaceous follicles, like your face or back. A sebaceous follicle is a connected hair follicle and sebaceous gland. When a hair follicle becomes blocked with dirt, dead skin cells and sebum (the oil your skin naturally produces), it can get infected. Therefore, a zit is basically an infected hair follicle. Adding pure, natural, organic oil (like Vapour Organic) to your skin care routine won’t hurt your complexion; it might even give you the glow you seek.

b-NATURAL Pure Beauty Holiday 2012 Look

Posted on 12/10/2012

If you want to spend more time dancing and less time primping in the lead up to New Years Eve parties then let us share with you a minimalistic look that still guarantees your makeup will be a head turner. For the b-NATURAL girl, the products featured give the look of pure beauty and many are organic in nature…

After you've prepped your base with your favorite foundation, sweep a bit of the ILIA Multi-Stick in I Put A Spell On You over the cheekbones. This romantic tangerine shade offers a natural fresh faced flush that instantly warms up the whole complexion. Made with Vitamin E and Shea Butter, it is also very conditioning for the skin. Draw in mistletoe kisses with sultry eyes courtesy of the RMS Beauty Cream Eyeshadow in Seduce, an earthy-brown bronze that adds subtle shimmer and really makes eyes pop. Create heightened drama by lining the upper and lower eyelids with Vapour Organic Beauty's Mesmerize Eyeliner in Black and finish off by coating the lashes in the Ultimate Mascara by Becca Cosmetics. 

Finally, no look is complete without some color on the lips. We love the ILIA Lipstick in Humble Me because it's the perfect nude with honey brown tones and best of all doesn't dry out lips! Add a touch of Jouer's Cosmetics Essential Lip Enhancer to the cupid's bow and middle part of bottom lip to create a heart shape that will play nicely with soft lighting. Make an entrance and an exit that nobody will forget because they will be wondering where that wift of gorgeous spicy scent came from - White Patchouli by Tom Ford finishes off this radiant holiday look with bergamot, peony, and coriander notes.

Make Beauty. Escape(TM) Runner-Up Shares Her Favorite Picks!

Posted on 03/22/2013

Our Make Beauty. Escape™ runner-up Cydrienne is loving her resort beauty prize pack featuring the 26 products we never travel without. She's been playing with them all but a few favorites have caught her attention from Clarisonic, Butter London, Vapour Organic Beauty and Kai. If you didn't get the chance to enter to win our luxury trip to Hawaii stay tuned as a new destination will be revealed in the next few months!

Butter London Nail Polish: "I'm really big on nail polish and absolutely loved that the package came with SIX colors from Butter London's Sweetie Shop Collection. The color I have on is Kerfuffle. This light pink is perfect for the start of spring and its subtleness pairs well with my outfits for work or play." 

Clairsonic Surf Mia2: "I rarely use anything else besides soap and water to wash my face at night since I have sensitive skin so I was skeptical about using the Clairsonic. The first time I tried it, however, I found my skin feeling soft and extremely clean. The plus side is that my face didn't have any bad reactions to the Clairsonic cleanser. " 

Kai Body Lotion: "I was born and raised in Hawaii so the Kai lotion smells exactly like the plumeria flowers that grow abundantly in Hawaii. It triggered happy memories of having a plumeria tucked behind my ear during a day at the beach or dancing hula wearing a lei of plumerias. Not only does it smell great,  but it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not oily like other lotions tend to do." 

Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use Blush: "I am a fan of make-up that is compact and easy to use so I definitely love the Vapour Blush stick. The color compliments my skin and the compact stick is perfect for when I am on the go and don't have time (or patience) to do my make-up at home."

Pastel Play

Posted on 04/26/2013

Pastels are everywhere this season in both fashion and beauty. Whether it's a peach blouse or a lilac eye, pastels almost always make an appearance in the spring, regardless of what year it is. Looking to implement this palette into your daily routine? Here are 3 easy ways you can play with pastels, without breaking the bank.

Peach Cheeks
Peach is flattering to every skin tone because it resembles a natural flush. All you have to do is figure out the right tone of peach to flatter your complexion.
Fair -  We recommend a softer hue with hints of pink, like IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks.
Medium - Go for pigments with more of an orange tint, try Jouer Cosmetics Tint in Fawn.
Darker - Complemented by a peach with a redder base, we recommend By Terry Blush Terrybly - Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb.

Say it with a Scarf
If you are new to pastel hues or if there is a new one you want to try, start with a scarf. Colors take a while to get used to, and may not all complement your coloring. Before investing in an expensive dress or jacket, test the trend with something smaller. If you aren't a scarf fan, this can also be accomplished with a necklace, clutch, or ballet flat.

I Have an EYE-dea
Pastel eyes! Eyeshadow is a lovely way to pose in pastels, and there is a flattering way to wear every shade! The trick to looking trendy and not … from the 80's, is to combine the pastel with a neutral shade. Here are some examples to get you going.
- Blend a frosty pink lid into a light grey crease, try ILIA Multi-Stick in Tenderly.
- Combine mint green shimmer with a caramel brown eyeliner, try Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment in Smitten.
- Mix a classic black smoky eye with a baby blue highlight, try By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow in Paradise Island.

Tips & Tricks: What Does 5-Free Mean?

Posted on 07/03/2013

Shop Nails here.

You may have come across terms like 3-Free, 4-Free, or 5-Free in the past when shopping for nail polish. But what does that mean? b-glowing.com is here to give you the 411 on what your lacquer is  leaving out!

3-Free: When you see 3-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), or Formaldehyde.

4-Free: When you see 5-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, or Camphor.

5-Free: When you see 5-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor.

What are these ingredients? Why are they used in the first place?

Toluene: Helps polish go on smoothly. Also found in gasoline, rubber cement, and shoe polish. Inhaling products containing toluene causes light-headedness, nausea and even unconsciousness and sometimes death. It's also linked to developmental damage for pregnant women.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): Prevents your polish from chipping and cracking. Also found in adhesives, printing ink, and plastics. It's been designated a reproductive and developmental toxin.

Formaldehyde: Makes polish tough and resistant. Most commonly found in nail strengtheners, not polish. It's also directly linked to nasal sinus cancer and the development of leukemia.

Formaldehyde Resin: A less toxic version of formaldehyde, this ingredient is still considered a skin allergen that can cause dermatitis.  

Camphor: Helps polish adhere to your nails. Also used as a moth repellent, used in the embalming process, and found in fireworks. While it is less hazardous than the "Toxic 3", it does cause skin irritation and is poisonous when ingested in large doses. Nail biters beware!

b-glowing.com is proud to carry a wide range of 3-Free, 4-Free, and 5-Free nail polish brands that we love. You will easily find bright, bold, beautiful colors that are long-lasting and SAFE! Here is a list, start shopping now!
