Vapour: Lips & Face

Vapour-Elixir-Lip-GlossVapour-Siren-Lipstick

I’ve been using various Vapour Organic Beauty for a while now. When I review makeup, sometimes I stick with it afterward and sometimes I don’t. Vapour is one of those produc lines that I’ve truly fallen in love with. When I was in Chicago over the holidays, Vapour Elixir Lip Gloss was the only gloss I brought with me. I usually have a million glosses with me, but I packed light in the gloss department this time!

Vapour Elixir in Hush was the perfect choice; it’s super moisturizing and provides a gorgeous shine and milky pink color. I love this gloss so much. Like all Vapour products, it’s non-chemical, which is a nice added plus. I wear it alone or over a lipstick, like Vapour’s Siren Lipstick, which I have in Ravish. Both colors are shown above. Price: Siren Lipstick is $19.00 and Elixir Lip Gloss is $20.00.

After the break, I review Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation.

I’ve also been using  Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation. Confession: I’m not a big foundation wearer. I have pretty decent skin, and I find my skin looks (and behaves) better when I wear less makeup. But I do have redness around my nose and chin and under-eye circles that I like to cover up. I’ve just never found a foundation that I like. I use to wear Clinique foundation back in the day and then toyed with bareMinerals, before I realized they were breaking me out, but before I got Atmosphere Luminous, I had ZERO foundations in my makeup kit!

Needless to say, I wasn’t sure what I’d think about Vapour’s foundation, even though I love their other products. I’d never used a foundation stick before, and I expected the consistency to be dry. But Vapour’s sticks glide on smoothly and blend easily with fingertips or a brush. The foundation literally melted into my skin. The texture was very creamy, which freaked me out a bit that I would end up greasy in a few hours or that my skin would break out. But the foundation is formulated with minerals to move and breathe with your skin. I didn’t have any greasiness later in the day and, happily, Luminous Foundation did not break me out! The moisturizing texture does diminishes appearance of fine lines, though, which is a bonus. The foundation evens out my skin tone where I need it. It also reflects light to enhances skins natural healthy glow. Another bonus!

I can’t say enough good things about this makeup line. Oh wait. I can. All their products also smell amazing. They’re infused with Vapour’s face specific botanicals: Frankincense, Tulsi and Lotus Flower, which are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, cooling and calming. And smell delicious. Price: $38.00
