VAPOUR ORGANIC BEAUTY | FOUNDATION AND PRIMER






 My favourite foundation and primer at the moment has to be by the innovative Vapour Organic Beauty.


"Vapour is 100% natural. It contains 70% certified organic ingredients and 30% minerals and vitamins. THAT IS IT! Vapour contains No Toxic Chemicals, No Parabens, No Phalates, No Gluten, No Animal Testing, No Nano Particles, No Irradiation." - Vapour Organic Beauty

Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation, shade 120


This foundation gives you light to medium coverage, but they do offer medium to full coverage with their 'Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation'.  The Atmosphere Luminous Foundation has a creamy texture that blends into the skin effortlessly, using just your fingers. Although, it does pair lovingly with with the 'Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.' This foundation is neither cakey or heavy. It will feel and look like your own skin, but a whole lot better with a dewy and luminous complexion. It will even out your skin tone, giving you the added benefit of moisturising and natural ingredients. It will not clog pores, allowing your skin to breathe. When used in conjunction with 'Stratus Instant Skin Perfector', It'll last you a good chunk of the day. The coverage is well suited for my skin, covering my occasional blemish or spots, although it won't offer enough coverage for problematic skin. I do have to admit, I have quite dark circles underneath my eyes and this foundation alone won't conceal them.

V offer 12 different shades, so hopefully you'll find one that matches you best. This shade (120) couldn't be more perfect for my skin tone (light to medium with neutral undertones). This particular foundation is suited for dry, mature and sensitive skin. Their 'Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation' works well for oily and combination skin.

Vapour Stratus Instant Skin Perfector, shade 902 (no shimmer)


Some people are skeptic about this product, but for me it's all I wear every morning. According to V, it's a moisturiser, primer and no-colour foundation. It is definitely moisturising for normal skin, but when winter comes along, I need an additional moisturiser for my dry patches. I really do love this product, it's a fantastic primer, although I haven't paired it with anything other than the 'Atmosphere Luminous foundation.'
When my skin is looking drab and dull, this perks it right up, evening out my skin tone and truly softening the lines underneath my eyes and around my mouth. My favourite part? It will make your skin feel like silk, completely and utterly soft. Like all their products, it's lovely to blend, quick and easy. Stratus does not clog pores, just offers your skin nourishing ingredients.

Vapour offer three different shades for different skin types. I have tried shade 903 and did not appreciate the amount of shimmer it had. Oh dear, when I applied it I really felt like a walking disco ball.

ingredients: Organic Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Silica, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Lauroyl Lysine, Mica, Organic Sambucus Nigra (Elderberry) Fruit Extract, Organic Lecithin, Organic Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Organic Papain (Papaya), Essential Oils & Natural Fruit Essences, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Wildcrafted Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Gum*, Organic Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil) Leaf Extract, Organic Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) Leaf Extract, may contain Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)
