An opened jar of Vapour Velvet Lip Gloss

review: vapour organic beauty velvet lip gloss

I’ll admit it — I’m not a gloss girl, but Vapour Organic Beauty gave me the chance to try their velvet gloss to see if I would change my mind. Guess what? It’s glossy but not offensively glossy. 😂 Long-wearing with a luscious texture, its scent makes me nostalgic for the Lip Smackers of my youth — mmm, berries! Oh boy, will I soon become a convert to lip gloss?! Without futher ado, here’s a detailed review:

Performance: Impressive — the texture is thick, but not sticky. The gloss is solid, warms on contact, and wears for several hours. If eating, you’ll need to reapply. This gloss is available in 9 shades and pictured below is the color Crystal — a clear gloss with subtle iridescence. Unicorn magic!

Packaging: Lovely blue outer cardboard packaging. Gloss is housed in a glass jar with a branded silver plastic lid. I don’t love putting my fingers in a pot of gloss — that would be my only gripe.

Ingredients: Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Castor Isostearate Beeswax Succinate*, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Mica, Organic Ficus Carica (Fig) Flavor Oil, Organic Prunus Domestica (Plum) & Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Flavor Oil, Organic Citrus Limon (Lemon) Oil, Stevia Rebaudiana (Stevia) Extract, Organic Melissa Officinalis (Lemon Balm) Leaf Extract, Wildcrafted Commiphora Myrrha (Myrrh) Gum, Organic Cetraria Islandica (Iceland Moss) Extract, Tocopherol (Non GMO Vitamin E – Soy), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Carmine (CI 75470), Manganese Violet (CI 77742)]

*Eco–Cert

Scent Profile: This smells like berries to me! I’m assuming the sweet scent comes from the inclusion of organic fig, organic lemon, and organic apricot. While the smell is lovely, the gloss doesn’t have a taste.

Price: $25.00 USD

Disposal: Recyclable outer cardboard packaging. Reusable or recyclable glass jar with plastic lid. I like to save these little glass jars for travel!

This product will likely last a year or more for me since I don’t use gloss regularly. I’m curious to try their other colors and would recommend this lip gloss if you love lip products. While it isn’t the most eco-friendly option (plastic sample packaging, environmental costs of shipping), there are samples available for purchase on their site. Have you tried Vapour Organic Beauty before?
