Vapour Organic Beauty was created by Eric Sakas, a cosmetic industry vetran who spent
years developing cosmetics alongside legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin and worked for many major beauty brands.
Eric was seaching for a line of cosmetics that was not only was luxurious and high performance but also made with natural ingredients that weren't harmful to people or the environment.
Soon Eric discovered a new formula which was not a liquid, powder or cream - it was a unique texture that was lighter than air. Eric tracked down the ingredient and the company that made it in New Mexico and it was the beginning of Vapour Organic Beauty.
All of the products in the line are in stick form with a swivel mechanism that makes it easy to twist up for application and twist down to apply the cap when done using them. They are light and easy to pack in a travel bag as well!
Now, let's take a look at all the products I used.
I started my makeup application with the spectacular Stratus Instant Skin Perfector (pictured, above). The stick is white but goes on the skin a very sheer white shade until you blend it in and then it becomes translucent. After massaging the perfector in I was amazed at how luminous, dewy and glowing it made my skin appear. The Skin Perfector utilizes the power of light reflection to make skin appear instantly brighter and healthier and it also helps fine lines and wrinkles diminish immediately.
My complexion instantly looked refreshed and bright (no matter how early in the morning!). The texture of the stick is also amazing - so light, silky and creamy. It hydrated my skin and yet didn't make the more oily parts of my t-zone look greasy. This was the perfect primer for the rest of the makeup, but I have to say, even on busy days when I didn't get to apply all the other products, I could just use this and some concealer and my skin looked fantastic.
Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is another standout product. It's a mineral foundation formula. I used Chocolate, (the darkest shade in the line). The finish is sheer/medium and also has a dewy, luminous effect, so the shade was more of a tint. Just as the with the Skin Perfector, this stick blends seemlessly and just melted into my skin. It was light and silky but again gave me such a fantastic glow. If you've ever felt like your skin couldn't breath under your makeup, this is the perfect product for you, because it actually moves with your skin and allows it to breath. It had very good staying power and didn't smear, smudge or change shades during the day. From the time I applied in the AM to the time I removed it in the evening my makeup and skin looked fresh and luminous - I was really impressed.
The third fantastic product and a great little stick to keep around at all times, is the Trick Stick, which is a illumnator/highlighter. I used the Dazzle shade for a golden finish and again I loved the effects. This stick was perfect to use on cheekbones, brow bones and even eye lids for a gentle, but flattering golden, sparkling effect on the skin. The texture was as light, silky and creamy as the other products in the line. It was very easy to blend and also had amazing staying power and was easy to layer for a more dramatic effect.
I also used the Aura Multi Use Blush in Torch, which is a very flattering warm pink that applies much sheerer than it appears in the stick. It's very creamy, easy to blend and layer for more color, with fantastic staying power. The dewy, glowy look just increased when I wore it. It brightened up my entire complexion! This stick can also double as color for lips and eyes - so when you're traveling this can really cut down on your product load.
For the lips I used the Lux Organic Lip Conditioner, which is an excellent moisturizer for the lips that was sheer, light, creamy feeling and long lasting. I had no dry or flaky lips all day with this product! It was the perfect base for the Siren Lipstick, which I used in Hint, a very pretty deep coral shade with copper undertones. It's fairly sheer, light and had a nice touch of shimmer and shine. The color and moisture lasted all day. This shade, like all the others in the line, also can work with all skin tones as well.
If you've been looking for an organic cosmetic line that will give you all the luxury and versatility you are used to with traditional brands, and/or want more portable, convenient products that are advanced in their formulations and create a truly glowing complexion, I highly recommend heading over to Vapour Beauty! - RLB
