Vapour Organic Beauty

Over the past year or so, I keep hearing the quiet roar of those who love Vapour Organic Beauty. Their Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is what put the line on the map, it’s an award winning favorite of picky Beauty Editors as a chemical-free foundation that gives naturally glowing skin. It’s one of three best sellers offered in their Essential Mini Collection (below) along with a Stratus Instant Skin Perfecter, and Aura Multi Use Blush. It’s a cheap ($29) way to check out the line and see what it’s all about.

I just ordered a sample collection ($15) and chose Atmosphere Foundation (in two shades), Illusionist Concealer, Stratus Soft Focus Instant Skin Perfecter, and a Trick Stick.

Are they my new go-to skin perfecters or a breakout nightmare? Stay tuned for the review.

Stockn’Go

I just heard about a great new website that has an Overstock meets Drugstore.com feel called Stockn’Go. It’s a huge selection of hair and skincare offered at a discount, you can check it out HERE.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Un-Retouched Ad & Trés Vichy Spring Collection

MAKE UP FOR EVER did something that might not seem like that big of a deal but it was pretty revolutionary, they created the first un-retouched makeup ad. Check it-

She’s pretty and young with great skin (and good lighting is always helpful), but you can see from her forehead and arm that it’s actually a person and not a creepy looking mannequin. Kudos, I hope to start seeing more honest ads.

Speaking of MUF, check out their adorable here-for-spring-only limited lash. It’s called Très Vichy and the bows are handmade. I’m completely in love with them and want one pair for a shoot and one just to keep and admire.

Très Vichy Duo Eyeshadow Palette is also part of the spring collection, pink and white diamond shadows are shades that any girly girl would go nuts over.

Unii Custom Palettes for Makeup Organization

I thought I was kickin ass with my CD case idea to organize shadows and blushes to be a lot more orderly. Looks like my idea wasn’t that novel after all.

Unii Cosmetics totally hands it to my idea with their fantastic creation that does essentially the same thing, but in a much sleeker way. If you can manage to jimmy all of your shadows from their original containers, you can create a space-saving, best-of custom palette. Check out M.A.C, Trish McEvoy and a these other lines that offer refills so you can drop them right in.

I don’t have a Unii, but it looks to be pretty straight forward and a lot easier than my glue-shadows-to-a-CD-case idea.

Birchbox; Beauty Samples Right to Your Door

I’m loving the idea of Birchbox, the hot new monthly delivery service that sends you 4-5 samples each month of various hair care, skin care, and makeup so you can try new things out without having to waste a bunch of money.

Here’s a vid that explains it a bit more, and HERE is their site.
