My Sustainable Journey: Vapour Organics Summer Brights

The latest addition to Spirit Beauty Lounge comes from Vapour Organics. They’ve released three new eyeshadow shades, to help brighten up the Summer…

From the Left: 
Seduce (Dark Purple)
Obsess (Mint Green)
Provoke (Bright Pink)
Of the entire selection of Vapour Organics Eyeshadows (and it’s a pretty formidable selection), these are definitely my favorite. I don’t know if they changed the formula or something, but these really grab the skin and the color is potent to boot. The earlier colors (especially the mattes) came out ‘greasy’ … which did not bode well for my oily eyelids. I’ve used these already and found that they blend out perfectly with fingers or a brush… and work well alone, or as a base for a complementary color.

My Sustainable Journey: Nvey Eyeshadow Singles

These have to be my favorites from the Nvey Collection… it’s the PIGMENTATION. These eyeshadows are so strong, and they hold true with no additional help needed from primers. I am so impressed by these!

Now, the flash ate the color and does not NEARLY do these shadows justice. They are so silky and pigmented, you really have to use a light touch, otherwise it just looks like you’ve been playing in your mother’s makeup. LOL

I’m head over heels in love. I used them over the weekend and they lasted all night with no problems. Totally impressed… and highly recommend.

You can find these beauties at Spirit Beauty Lounge

My Sustainable Journey: ILIA Pure Lip Care

My latest order from Spirit Beauty Lounge (I swear, they are just getting all of my $$ LOL) included a lipstick from ILIA. This is my first go at the brand. I wanted to see how the brand performed… as the lipsticks claim to be a gloss, lipstick, and balm in one.

I ended up with the darkest color… Arabian Knights:

The swatch photographed a little ‘thin’ — as the formula is semi-sheer. In natural light, it wears stronger. But with a flash, you can kind of see through it. Observe…

Overall, I like it. It’s like a glossier version of the Kate Spade Supercalifragilipsticks. I think they are more balm and less lipstick, but they wear very nicely nonetheless.

You can find ILIA Pure Lip Care products at Spirit Beauty Lounge.

My Sustainable Journey: Nvey Eco Creative Eye Color System

Okay… I’m impressed.

Nvey has managed to bring a selection of eyeshadow colors that are highly pigmented, last a ridiculously long time, and are good for you to boot!

This is what they say:
Soothing Chamomile and antioxidants Vitamin C, E & A, make for a smooth and soft formula excellent for dry and sensitive skins. A natural base of Corn Silk and Jojoba Oil adds depth of color, ease of application and long wearing ability. 

The shadows feel great going on, glide on with minimal fallout, and stay put… even on these oily lids.

The shadow come in palettes of five colors each, duos, and singles. Here are the 5-color palettes, which are identified only by number:

Palette #1

Palette #2
Palette #3

Palette #4
Palette #5
I thought I’d found favorites in palettes #1 and #3… but I used #2 today and changed my mind. They’re all good. You can find these palettes, and the rest of the Nvey Eco Color system at Spirit Beauty Lounge.
