Just a few days ago I received my package from Vapour beauty that I was waiting so impatiently. This was my first order from them – I was searching some new makeup products with a creamy texture. Of course, I’ve previously checked the ingredients, which are not just safe, but the company is also a proud signer of Safe cosmetics. At that point, the only question for me was the result. Also the package with the products was very nice and eco friendly! First, I was a little afraid about choosing the right color, but their shade guide is excellent. I have chosen just the perfect shade for my skin tone. I have a light neutral skin tone and I was afraid that the 115 shade would be too yellow, but it wasn’t at all. The colors on the monitor vary, so take this in consideration. I was also wondering about the texture; I thought that the products will be quite oily with a heavy coverage. But I was wrong and my fears were totally unnecessary. I immediately tried the products and I was just blown away with the results. Just amazing! I can’t describe the enthusiasm, when I realized that there are companies who are already making enormous steps towards saving the environment and our health without renouncing the beauty. Since I decided to become a green make-up artist, I was used to work with products that provided great results, but with some consequences for our health. When I experienced new advanced technologies that organic makeup brands already provide, I was really surprised about their good quality.
Anyway, I decided to try first just a few products from Vapour organic beauty:
Primer: Stratus instant skin perfector
Cream foundation: Atmosphere luminous foundation
Cream blush: Aura multi use blush classic
Vapour beauty Stratus instant skin perfector
I love to use primers before I start with the make-up. They provide an excellent overall finish, optically minimize the pores and the skin looks younger and more even. Stratus instant skin perfector does this and much more! Take in consideration that conventional primers can provide a good result, but your skin is not breathing, nor is nourished, because they contain a lot of chemicals. The greatest thing with Stratus is that while you wear it, the skin is protected with anti-oxidants and moisturized because of organic evening primrose oil, papaya, pumpkin, frankincense, tulsi, and lotus flower. I especially like the fresh and even skin tone, with a natural luminosity, that Stratus help to achieve. The package is in a handy stick, so you can bring it everywhere. It comes in 2 shades: 902 is for skin with pink undertones and 903 is for skin with yellow undertones. All the products have a similar and pleasant smell, very natural, with no artificial perfumes added. The application is easy and is the first step in the process of applying makeup after cleaning the skin. I thought that I’ll have to use my foundation brush, but I apply it very easy, just with tapping lightly into my skin and then blending with my fingers to achieve a perfect finish. With Stratus you prepare your skin for the next step – foundation (if you will need it). The finish is perfect, lightly sheer and even, suitable for every skin type. Now, Stratus also comes in a liquid version, packed in a bottle. I haven’ tried it yet, but I’m sure it’s great too!
Vapour beauty Atmosphere luminous foundation
I can say that the coverage and overall result after applying Stratus and the foundation exceeded all my expectations. I can easily use it for professional work on a photo shooting for example. If you will need any extra coverage after Stratus, then this foundation is the answer. It’s very easy to apply, you can gently tap it into the skin, then blend with fingers. If you want you can also use a foundation brush and apply just where you need. Their color guide is excellent and don’t be afraid, their 10 shades are developed very good, also for other ethnical skin tones. This is gonna be my next investment even for my professional use. Sometimes, when I think about foundation in stick, I think automatically of heavy coverage and oily texture, but Atmosphere is another story. Less is more and the coverage is light, even, but at the same time covers any imperfections. You feel like wearing nothing on and that’s the point, isn’t it? I think it’s worth to try also the new liquid version of this foundation. And after all, all the range of Vapour products is designed for a demanding modern woman, who search high quality and quick results.
Vapour beauty Aura multi use blush
When it comes to blushes Vapour has 3 versions of Aura: classic (sheer matte finish), radiant (frost satin finish) and stain (powerful bright colors). I tried Aura in spark shade, cause on myself I like natural colors that make me look fresh and healthy. Spark is quite a universal shade in peach, that you can use on cheeks, but if you want also on lips. I’d also sculpt the eyelids with it. I think that the versatility of this products is a modern way of using the makeup. With adding more product you can go from a natural to a dramatic look. Aura is also based, like all Vapour products, on organic ingredients that nourish and protect your skin. And when you put off your makeup at the end of the day, your skin looks great and not exhausted, because of safe ingredients that protect it.
If you are in hurry, you can be ready just with a few right steps without renouncing to wear make-up. I’m not saying that you can’t do a great evening sophisticated look, but if you have no time, with this 3 products you are ready to shine like a (green) star from the latest fashion magazine’s cover 🙂
This is the look from Fendi fashion show F/W 2010 and it’s the exactly finish and look that I described in this post. Just to have an idea. I find it gorgeous and perfect for day or evening.
That’s all for now, but be sure that you will hear again about Vapour products from me!
