Gorgeous Skin and Glossy Lips with Vapour Organic Beauty

I have a lot of love for Vapour Organic Beauty. Their original Atmosphere Foundation turned me into a stick foundation believer as it is so easy to use, travel with and gives my skin a natural, even tone. I also found it on par, if not better than other foundations with silicones, parabens, and a long list of synthetic chemicals I stammer through when reading aloud. By contrast, Vapour Organic Beauty’s ingredient list reads like a botany text as their products are 100% natural and have a high percentage of organic ingredients.

Camellia Seed Oil, the first ingredient in their new Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation, is rich in anti-oxidants including Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and non-essential fatty acids including oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. It provides the Soft Focus Foundation with a silky hydration for the skin and gives a healthy and radiant “satin” finish which is neither matte nor overly dewy. While I do love Vapour’s stick foundation, I have become partial to this new liquid foundation. I like the creamy texture and find it faster and easier to apply than the stick. My typical regimen is to apply it over evanhealy’s Rosehip Treatment Facial Serum in Rose after cleansing. Most days I prefer the light coverage of a tinted moisturizer, so I blend one pump of the Soft Focus Foundation with one pump of evanhealy’s Light Moisture Replenishing Fluid. After warming the mix in my palms, I apply it on my face just as I would a moisturizer. The coverage is smooth, even and radiant. If you like medium to full coverage, you will achieve that by using Soft Focus Foundation over your moisturizer. My skin tone is light to medium olive and looks best with yellow leaning foundations rather than pink so I chose S120, the same color as I have in their stick foundation. My first look at the liquid on my skin had me questioning if I chose correctly as it seemed kind of pink, but once on my face, it was a perfect match.

Vapour also came out with a liquid version of their stick Skin Perfector, and in my opinion, the liquid is a huge improvement. I found the stick to be drying, especially in cold winter months. Like the liquid foundation, the liquid Soft Focus Instant Skin Perfector has Camellia Seed Oil as its base, so with that comes a soothing moisture for your skin. On its own, the Skin Perfector is a subtle highlighter. When used underneath your foundation, it’s an excellent primer as I noted my makeup (blush in particular) lasted a whole day at work, no touch-ups needed. I ordered the more golden toned S903 for my skin, and again, it’s a terrific match.

With my order came a free gift, the Elixir Lip Gloss in Twinkle. To be honest, I didn’t have high hopes as I have been disappointed in their “lipsticks” which feel like tinted balms without much staying power. Thankfully, I am thoroughly impressed with my Twinkle GWP! The gloss is nourishing and smooth with just enough texture to make it last, but without any gummy or tacky consistency. I love the color Twinkle, as it’s a neutral baby pink that has enough pigment to get it out of the “nude” realm. I find it useful to wear over lipstick that needs some toning down, and I also reach for it when I want a soothing salve for my dry lips. And I love, love, love that it’s all natural, with 70% of its ingredients being organic.

Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation is $50 for 1.14oz,

Stratus Instant Skin Perfector $56 for 1.06 oz

Elixir Lip Gloss (Now in wand style) $24.

  1. Hi Jessica,
    I think you’d really like the Vapour foundation! I have been using it everyday for over a month and have nothing but good things to say about it. I hope you find a good color match!

  2. Do you think the Soft Focus Instant Skin Perfector can be used as a highlighter?? I see some shimmer in the swatch, and I’m looking for an organic/natural liquid highlighter, and I’m wondering if I can use this as a highlighter on my cheekbones 🙂 and the website doesn’t say anything about a higlighting effect.. I’ll look forward to your response!!

    1. Hi Helen,
      I am just getting to your comments now as I have been out of town, sorry about that!
      The shimmer is really subtle, but if you like a very subdued highlighting effect, I think it could be used that way.
      I wonder if Vapour would be willing to send you a sample? If not, SpiritBeauyLounge has a sample program and you could try the RMS highlighter in addition, which is excellent!

  3. Hi Trish, hope you’ve been well. I’ve been contemplating the evanhealy line, but haven’t been able to decide which moisturizer would work for me. I think the Light Moisture Replenishing Fluid would be best, out of habit, I gravitate towards the richest sounding emulsion. You must like it, but how would you describe its scent/texture/level of hydration?

    1. I have been having great results with the Light Moisture one, but it is very light. It has taken me a while to get used to it, because like you, I typically prefer thicker moisturizers. But, I have gone through the winter using mostly this during the day and love it. The Rose Vetiver cream is really lovely too, I like it for night.

      Good to hear from you! Hope you are well 🙂

  4. Ah, I see. From the description, I thought this would be more “active” than the others, and in my head, translated that as “richer”. Thank you for your reply. : )

    1. The Light Moisture has argan oil in it, so from that standpoint it probably can be considered more active and richer. Argan has been great for my skin, and even though it’s not “thick” on its own, and certainly not in this evanhealy product, it provides excellent hydration. I hope that helps…..

  5. I love Vapour’s glosses and foundation/ primer, but some of their eyeshadows are a bit hard to apply for me (I was so looking forward to their lavender “Lyric” but pigmentation was not very good).
