I see a theme happening in my makeup bag this summer….makeup in a stick. Be it the perfect bronzer (more on that here) my purse-staple Bobbi Brown Face Touch-Up Stick or just about everything from the Vapour Organics Spring/Summer 2012 collection, I’m loving the convenience and ease of no-brush beauty. And bonus, Vapour’s formulas are made entirely with certified organic plants, minerals and vitamins that treat your skin and give it some color. Vapour basically defines the “healthy” makeup category.
So the sticks. We have Trick Stick in Orbit, a brightening white-blue highlighter for cheekbones, brow bones, bow of the lip (FAV!) and inner corners of the eyes. The slim applicator makes this so user-friendly and Vapour infuses the Trick Stick with anti-inflammatory herbs so skin looks so healthy and naturally lustrous. The orchid pink stick is Mesmerize Eye Shimmer in Provoke. This one STUNNED me – you always fear a little bit looking red or tired with pink eye color but the purply undertones make this so unique. It’s like a special treat for the eyelids — the formula deliver antioxidants (how often are you actually getting nutrients on the lid?) and Provoke is super brightening. Provoke + mascara = all you need to look fresh and AWAKE.
And…I saved the best stick for last…Siren Lipstick in Au Pair. It’s a velvet berry color that is rosy on my lips. It’s one of those colors that brightens up everything but doesn’t look like I’m wearing lipstick. I love when that happens, don’t you? Vapour also revamped this already awesome formula with a new botanical infusion — we’re talking lemon balm, pomegranate, rose buds, jojoba oil and essential fatty acids. It’s not fair to call this just a lipstick, clearly. We’ll add lip smoothing and conditioning to the list with a side of tastes great.
All of the above can be found at Vapour Beauty online, where there is practically limitless “stick” options.
