My favorite clean makeup
I love everything about Vapour Organic Beauty – from their clean ingredients and focus on sustainability to the chic packaging and beautiful formulas. I discovered their products about a year ago from Credo Beauty and have been in love ever since. I also purchased a couple things from Dermstore back in April and reviewed them here. A couple weeks ago, Vapour was so kind to send over all of these gorgeous products so I could try more of the line!
These are the Siren Lipsticks in Desire (left) and Incognito (right) and I find this formula so comfortable to wear! It lasts pretty well for a finish that’s a bit glossy too. Desire is my favorite since it’s such a wearable shade; it’s slightly more pink than my natural lip color and brightens my lips nicely. It also goes with pretty much any eye look I’ve done recently. Incognito is a pretty, deeper neutral tone; I like the brown undertones in this one. Since these reflect light well (because they’re a little glossy), they make my lips look really healthy and plump! I also love the fresh, fruity scent.
The berry swatch closest to my thumb is the Aura Multi-use Stain in Scandal. It is such a gorgeous color! On my cheeks, it looks like the perfect flush from being out in the cold. I also have the Classic version in Spark and this one does last longer throughout the day since it’s a stain; it doesn’t go on dry or chalky though thankfully and you have plenty of time to blend it. I like this best as a blush, although it’s a beautiful lip color too.
The Vapour Illusionist Concealer is my go-to for easy, natural-looking coverage. I use it under my eyes, on my cheeks and nose, and sometimes my chin as my base; I love how radiant it looks under the eyes especially. I originally reviewed shade 010 here and now I have shade 015! It’s a bit darker and more yellow; since I’m a tiny bit tan still (thanks, Mexico trip and Isle of Paradise!), this matches my skin quite well and then I use 010 to brighten under the eyes and the down the bridge of my nose (where I have a lot of redness). Here are comparison swatches using indoor lighting and my phone’s flash. 010 looks so light here that you’d think it doesn’t match my skintone, but it’s actually just on the darkest part of my arm.
The swatch closet to my wrist is the Elixir Plumping Gloss in Flirt, which is a nice peachy shade. The formula isn’t sticky, but it is hydrating and has good color payoff. These glosses aren’t tingly (which I prefer) and I think the plumping effect comes from how juicy they make your lips look. They also smell like sweet strawberries or something – I love it! I want to try the shade Tickle next because I think it will make a great lip topper.
Overall, I am so impressed with everything I tried and can’t thank Vapour enough for sending such a generous package!
