My Description & Thoughts:

I have known about Vapour beauty for several months now, after experiencing one of their products in a Goodebox sample box. They are one of my favorite organic makeup brands–and as you can see, they are on my list of “Brands I Love.”

This line as a whole is USDA Organic and this specific product is 70% organic. Pretty impressive–I’m always eager to try a new Vapour product.

My main problem in the past with eyeliner has been:

-Irritates my eyes

-Doesn’t apply easily and evenly

-Sketchy ingredients

This eyeliner solves all of those problems, making me give this product high ratings. I even used this eyeliner on my wedding day! Vapour makes this color, “truffle” and they also make a black version. I like this brown color because it matches my natural hair color and accentuates my last lash line without being too dramatic looking.

One of the best things about this product is that for me, it doubles as an eyebrow liner. The smudge tool at the opposite end of the liner also helps with making the color blend into the brows. Something as simple as filling in your brows a little bit can accentuate your brow bones and eyes.

I recommend this to any gal on a search for a great, organic eyeliner. As usual, Vapour doesn’t disappoint with this product.

Afterglow Cosmetics Eyeliner Review

Organic cosmetic products have been on my radar alot recently in switching all everyday essentials over to alternatives that are free of harmful chemicals.

I came across this Afterglow Organics eyeliner and was impressed with the ingredient list and how well it was said to work.

Previously I had used a Maybelline eyeliner on days I decided to wear makeup. Over time, I became more and more aware that my eye make up was causing major irritation in my eyes. I was eager to remedy that!

In an earlier post, I provided the ingredient list for this eye liner and compared it to an eye liner made by Lancôme. Check that post out for a better understanding of the comparison.

This eyeliner is great. The application end of the stick is not a pencil–it has a rotating base that allows you to push the color up and retract it.

I bought the brown eye liner that Afterglow makes. They also make black. I find that I like having a brown eye liner on hand for the day time, as black can be too harsh looking.

This eye liner is a great swap for me from Maybelline to Afterglow. Checking out the ingredient list of your cosmetics will likely prompt you to make a switch to a product with more natural ingredients.

Larenim Powder Eyeliner Review

This is my first time trying powder eye liner. I found this

Larenim Powder Eye Liner

at a local health food store in Overland Park, KS called Natural Grocers. They have an impressive selection of organic and all natural cosmetics and toiletries.

I considered the idea of trying powder eye liner instead of pencil eyeliner for a few reasons,

1) I wanted a natural option for black eye liner.
2) I wanted to experiment with the application of powder eye liner to see if I liked the way it applied & looked.
3) I am trying to find the right products and application techniques for my wedding make up 🙂

This Larenim powder eye liner is just awesome. Conveniently enough, I found this slanted brush in Natural Grocers also. It is the absolute perfect brush to apply this eye liner.

I only wear eye liner on my upper lid. For a more dramatic look, applying it to your lower lid does the trick. I personally prefer the way I look with eye liner only on the top.

This eye liner powder can double as an eye shadow, which is great for traveling with minimal make up on hand.

The application is so simple and easy. I find that sometimes pencil eye liner is tough to layer on the way you want it and can be tough to apply, depending on the consistency of the pencil. With this powder, you have the freedom to layer it as subtlety or as profusely as you wish to.
