Vapour Velvet Lipgloss

Huge fan of lipgloss over here. Child of the 90’s, clearly…bonus if it smells like a cupcake or peaches. But what I can’t stand is sticky, tacky, glue-your-lips-shut gloss. Ew. Nope.

I like my lipgloss to feel like a lip balm; ultra hydrating, but still adds a pretty sheen and lasts for a few hours before needing reapplication. I love lip glosses with a hint of color to add over lipsticks that feel too dry, or even by themselves for a delicate wash of color that doesn’t compete with a more dramatic eye look.

Recently I got to sample 3 of Vapour Beauty’s Velvet Lip Glosses and these tick all my boxes of what a lipgloss should be! They’re hydrating thanks to ingredients like lemon balm, myrrh, and Icelandic moss. As far as a scent, I would say it’s a mildly fruity fragrance but not overpowering. They add a hint of color but don’t feel sticky or heavy and really feel more like a balm, especially because you have to scrape it out of a little tub rather than a traditional doe foot applicator. But they are glosssssssy! I was also impressed by the wear time; these managed to stay on for several hours (even a gym session!).

I received the shades Harmony (a peachy coral), Nomad (a punchy pink), and Deva (berry mauve). The colors aren’t overly pigmented, more like a tint of color. Harmony is the closest to my natural lip color, so it just adds shine. Nomad is definitely the brightest of the bunch, and probably the most noticeable on my lips when nothing else is on them. Deva is like a ‘my lips but better’ shade, I especially love this with some lip liner-it looks really polished and pretty and is full size worthy for me.
