We recently found a new range of natural makeup that we can't wait to tell you all about! On our quest to find you more amazing natural makeup brands we stumbled upon VAPOUR Beauty and we are so glad we did! VAPOUR have kept it simple, just how natural a product should be.
"VAPOUR embodies the beliefs of its founders – beautiful, glowing skin without compromise."
If you care for your skin it will smile back at you and it’s never too late to make the switch to a natural range.
Brands like VAPOUR make this easy offering a wide range of all your everyday beauty products with not so everyday standards. We won’t ever write about something before trying it for ourselves, so we recently tried a few products from the VAPOUR range.
A makeup essential – a trustee lipstick or a gloss. VAPOUR offer a range of lipsticks and glosses that are both equally as amazing as each other. I usually prefer a lipstick for everyday wear as it’s not as shiny, but using a nice gloss over the lipstick can really plump up the lips!
The lipsticks are available in 26 shades (as pictured below).
We tried 'TEMT 401' the pigment was perfect and overall the colour was simply amazing!
The colour works for both an everyday lipstick and a night out (now all that is left to do is to try all the other 25 shades!)
Check out our colour swatch to give you a better idea of what the colour looks like.
The swatch on the right shows the same lipstick with light and heavier application;
Up next the VAPOUR Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss.
Some glosses we have tried in the past tend to look really transparent when applied.
The colour of the Vapour gloss is not too strong but not too transparent - perfect balance. We tried the VAPOUR gloss in rogue (see swatch below), however it also comes in 17 other shades as pictured below
The VAPOUR ranges of lipsticks and glosses doesn't allow you
to settle for second best, with so many shades your bound to find one you love.
Check out out swatch on the right, again with light and dark application.
VAPOUR Luminous Foundation
A good base. We tried the Luminous foundation in shade 135 and firstly what I love most about the foundations that Vapour offer (aside from being organic and natural) is that they actually cater for both people with pink undertones and yellow undertones in the skin.
If you have tanned skin, you will know that some foundation shades, even ones that appear to look like a match in the bottle turn out to be very grey and ashy once applied – any dark circles are emphasised and we don’t want that!
I like to maintain a natural tanned glow, however they greyish tinge just ruins the entire look. The Vapour Luminous Foundation in shade 135 is a deep, rich tan suitable for those with yellow undertones in the skin.
If you are a lighter tan, it may be worthwhile blending the foundation with Shade 125, so it won’t be as deep - we have not actually done this yet, but are keen to see if that would work. The foundation is smooth and lightweight.
A little goes a long way, so you don’t need too much for it to make a difference. The foundation feels great on the skin – velvety smooth in fact. I’d say that the coverage is medium. Shades
Out with the old and in with the new.
We received the Vapour concealer in shade 035. The consistency was smooth and non-cakey. You can use it under the eyes without it creasing (I usually set my concealer with a translucent powder to be extra sure, especially in areas that are prone to sweating) In terms of the colour, I think I may have needed a shade lighter to notice a proper difference and to see the coverage potential.
Everything else about the concealer was great, it was light, easy to apply and left the skin feeling smooth. With the right shade, this would be something I would wear.
Instant Skin Perfection
We tried shade 903 Stratus Luminous.
The instant skin perfector proved to be a lovely lightweight primer that is not greasy or too shiny. It provides a light, moisturizing layer over the skin and allows you to apply your makeup more smoothly.
It also seems to work as a really light illuminator, which stops the foundation looking flat. They say that the key to good makeup is good skin and the instant skin perfector is a perfect little combo, a 3-in-1 moisturiser, primer and no colour foundation.
Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer
Shade: Simmer 222
We loved this bronzer. It is not too shimmery making it perfect for day-to-day wear and allows you to bring some colour into the face without much effort. I’d describe it as adding a bit of tan, without too much shimmer – so it can still look very natural when applied.
The bronzer itself is smooth and creamy, with a subtle pigment. The Bronzer is available in three shades,
• Mirage - Pale gold which brings a kiss of sun to fair skin tones.
• Simmer - Rich medium bronze which deepens a tan on all skin tones.
• Spicy - Versatile clear dark brown which enriches all skin tones.
