Fruit Pigmented Cosmetics?

I've just learned about a fairly new company (100% Pure) that uses fruit & vegetable pigments to color their makeup. How cool is that! It looks like most of their single-item products range around $13, whereas palettes are more.

Their site makes the following statement: "The first and only cosmetics colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments. While other color cosmetics are colored with either synthetic dyes or minerals, only 100% Pure color cosmetics are colored with fruit & vegetable pigments (patents pending)! All the antioxidants and vitamins in fruits are in the actual color, so you will be applying all the healthy nutrients of the fruits directly on your skin!"

Their lip butter got a rave review on megsmakeup.com. Have any of you, my readers, tried any of their products? Sound off in the comments!

Vapour Beauty

I was given the opportunity to test some products from Vapour Organic Beauty. To make this an easier read, I'll do a quick rundown on each product.

Vapour Beauty Mesmerize Eye Color Treatment in Storm

Ugh, I just realized the name on the image is misspelled, forgive me.

  • If you want a sheer wash of color, this will give you that.
  • Storm would work well for a smokey eye
  • Didn't blend as smoothly as I would've liked
  • It seemed to take more product than normal to get the desired results, perhaps I was doing something wrong.
I'm kinda on the fence about this one. It has it's good points, but it also seemed a little difficult to work with. Maybe it's just me.

Vapour Beauty Lipstick/Lipgloss

  • Gloss is a nice sheer juicy pink w/plenty of shine. Lipstick gave my lips a nice & very subdued berry red color.
  • Lipstick application wasn't as smooth as I would've liked.
  • Both lip products have a strange, but tolerable smell.
Overall, I do like both products, but I like the gloss better. It went on much more smoothly w/a nice finish. I don't care for the smell of either product though.

Vapour Beauty Illusionist Concealer

  • Decent Coverage
  • Easier to apply & blend than the lipstick & cream shadow
  • Don't expect this to cover up a bruise, but it will soften the colors, making them less noticeable.
Not bad overall, blends nicely, softens bruise colors, etc.

Final Comments:
Well, that's it. I think out of the whole bunch I'm happiest w/the gloss, but the concealer ain't bad either. Hope this helps anyone who wanted to know more about Vapour Beauty's products!
