Want Soft Focus Skin?

FullSizeRender-3

We’ve all heard claims like “makeup-and-skincare-in-one”.  I don’t know about you, but that term usually makes me skeptical.  However, this cooler, drier weather does have me thinking…  Even with my combination to oily skin, I’ve needed an extra boost of moisture lately, and my Summer glow is GONE, so I need a little help in that area, too.  Enter: Vapour Organic Beauty.  Whether your skin is oily, dry or sensitive, their calming, balancing  makeup is truly transformative.  Their products nourish with an Organic Pumpkin and Papaya Complex, brighten with organic Camellia, and are infused with Vapour’s face-specific infusion of soothing Frankincense, antioxidant Tulsi, and calming Lotus.  Ladies, this is the real deal.  Read on for my favorites.

Stratus Instant Skin Perfector Stick: I am obsessed with this no-color primer stick.  It is similar to a BB (beauty balm) Cream; it moisturizes, primes, evens out skin tone, and blurs imperfections, and it can be used alone, or under foundation.  I love the ease of applying it straight from stick to face, (blend it a little with your fingers) and the finish is a beautiful, soft, semi-matte.  (I wear 903.)  If you have very dry skin, try the liquid version: Stratus Soft Focus Instant Skin Perfector.

In the cooler months, especially at night, I love wearing Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation.  (I recently raved about it here.)  It does exactly what it claims to do: it makes my skin look like it’s being viewed through a soft focus camera lens.  If I have an evening event, I wear this on top of Stratus Instant Skin Perfector Stick for a glowy, luminous look.  While this foundation is very moisturizing, it has a beautiful finish; the trick is to let it dry for a minute or two before applying blush, highlighter, etc.  (I wear S123.)

Vapour’s Aura Blush Stick provides a dewy, lit-from-within glow.  If you like your blush to whisper rather than scream, this will be your secret weapon.  There are over 20 gorgeous, flattering colors, and 3 different finishes (a classic satin cream, which I prefer, a shimmer and a stain).  This buildable formula glides right on and blends beautifully, and it is moisturizing enough to wear on my lips, too.  I recently made a pretty bold statement about Aura Blush; read it here.  My favorites are Crush, Spark and Courtesan.

If RMS Eye Polish is a little too oily for you, but you prefer a a creamy eyeshadow, try Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Color Sticks.  The colors are beautiful and have great staying power for a Clean cream formula.  I prefer the Shimmer finish (there is also a cream finish option), which has great depth. I apply straight from the stick and blend a little with my fingers.  My current favorites are Ember and Cinder.

Vapour’s Mesmerize Eyeliner is my Holy Grail eye pencil.  Why?  Because it stays put – even on the lower water line.  As far as I’ve tested, no other Clean eyeliner has this capability.  Vapour also just reformulated;  now, the color doesn’t just stay on, but it also glides on with ease.  (The old formula had staying power, but applying it wasn’t very fun.)  Ink and Truffle are always in my makeup bag as well as my handbag.

  1. I recently bought the Vapour concealer and I am interested in trying out the Skin Perfecter- but can you help clarify? I was told the stick (also for the foundation) is for dry skin and the liquid for more oily? The Vapour website seems to support this too…although it seems counter–intuitive?

    • Weird… the rep at Vapor sent me the stick in the Skin Perfector in stick form, saying that it was better for oily skin… I can say that I cannot imagine using the liquid version under the liquid foundation – your face would never dry enough to put on any other makeup! Maybe order some samples? Let me know how you make out!

  2. Vapor Organic Beauty has impressed me with the few products I’ve tried from them, so I’d love to sample more from their offerings. I’m definitely interested in the Stratus Instant Skin Perfector Stick.
