Vapour Organic's Siren Lipstick range (wish list)

Vapour Organic:  Dare 415 Siren Lipstick (top left) 
Vapour Organic: Torrid 413 Siren Lipstick (top right)
Vapour Organic: Na├»ve 421 Siren Lipstick (bottom left)
Vapour Organic:  Bold 420 Siren Lipstick (bottom right

Mineral make up has come a long way, you can go to any mainstream shopping complex and find mineral eye shadows and foundations (in most colours). However, I find it difficult to get my hands on fashion forward naturally made lipstick colours! 

So...I did some research on google and stumbled upon Vapour Organic's Siren lipstick range 

I really do love the colours I have picked to show you guys! The top two colours are dark ( I tend to wear dark colours in the winter). I particularly like Torrid 413 (top right) it has a plum undertone, for such a daring colour it is surprisingly flattering on most skin tones ( from what I have observed anyway).

The bottom two colours are very different from each other, but both serve a purpose. Naive 421 (bottom left) is a perfect colour for daytime wear, it blends in with your skin really well and gives you a natural look. Bold 420 (bottom right) is a classic deep red lipstick, dark and perfect for the winter months. 

I would like to do a 'winter look' make up post soon, so keep your eyes peeled =)

Thanks for reading and please leave a comment

Sweet Almond Oil beauty benefits

And the award for laziest blogger of 2013 goes to ME! 
Sorry guys, I have had a hectic couple of months. Never had the chance to sit down and indulge in beauty research and writing. However this Friday evening as my boyfriend makes me samosas for dinner, I will take the opportunity to write about one of my favourite beauty essentials, Almond Oil. 

This particular bottle of almond oil (along with a handful of other things) was given to me on my birthday by some of my best friends (they really know what I like). So, I would like to thank them again for such a wonderful (super useful!) present. 

This is my list of Sweet Almond Oil benefits - (I have been using almond oil for a few months and have definitely seen an improvement in my skin and hair)

  • Almond oil hydrates and enlivens your skin (without leaving the skin feeling sticky) 
  • Promotes the cell-renewal process and helps in eliminating dead skin (good anti ageing product)
  • Brightens skin tone
  • Diminishes dark circles
  • Best massage oil ! Really does help get rid of knots on your back
  • Helps to get rid of chapped lips 
  • Fantastic hair oil (promotes hair growth) 

This morning I had a bit of a beauty mishap, I put on a potent face mask and my skin reacted pretty badly to it, as you can see here... My face became as red as a baboons butt!! 

So I applied quite a bit of almond oil and gently massaged it into my skin. After about 2 hours the redness and irritation of my skin went away completely!! 

Almond oil is generally quite cheap. You can buy a 200ml bottle of almond oil( it should last you a couple of months) for £6.99 here 

Indulge in some essential oils
