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!

She was beautiful, mysterious, voluptuous, a sex icon, a hopeless romantic, overtly sexual for her time and most importantly gone to way to soon. Almost fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe has never been more present in our lives. We were given a glimpse at a part of her life that was made into film, My Week With Marilyn, played by Michelle Williams; her signature red lip and pin curls are constantly seen throughout one fashion spread after another, and in a wonderful show of respect, Marilyn Monroe was named the face of the Cannes Film Festival for their 65th anniversary. She is truly timeless and her great taste in skincare has not been forgotten either…
Skincare brand Erno Laszlo has been taking care of the skin of classic Hollywood dating all the way back to 1939. Dr. Erno Laszlo, a Budapest cosmetologist treated Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn, and basically all the glamour girls of that era entrusted him to keep their skin silver screen worthy. Perhaps none more so than Miss Monroe who after her death, an Erno Laszlo skin cream was found on her night stand.

Cosmetics pamper us. They make us feel beautiful. Many women cherish the time spent applying cosmetics; putting on lipstick and slathering on lotions makes them feel luxurious. Makeup and skin care products make us feel we are taking care of ourselves in a special way. Yet many cosmetic products contain dangerous ingredients. Below, we list three unhealthy ingredients commonly found in cosmetics.
While many women have heard the rumor that many lipsticks contain lead, few realize that independent and FDA studies have verified that this urban legend is true. Lead is a neurotoxin that builds up in the body over time. Research suggests that lead poisoning contributes to lowered IQ, increased aggression and diminished school performance. Considering that most women wear lipstick on a daily basis, the potential for lead poisoning is very real.
You may be aware of lead’s toxicity thanks to public education campaigns on lead-based paints. The EPA regulates renovation activities to prevent lead exposure, which is especially threatening to young children, whose brains are still developing. Yet because the FDA does not conduct pre-market testing for cosmetics, lipstick manufacturers are not prevented from putting lead in their products. Fortunately, a few manufacturers now offer lead-free lipsticks.
If you’re looking for a luscious, safe product to nourish your lips following years of lead-filled lipsticks, look no further than Reve de Miel ultra-nourishing lip balm from Nuxe Paris. Safe enough for children aged 36 months and up, this Nuxe Paris product uses grapefruit peel oil as a preservative rather than parabens – which, as explained below, may cause cancer.
