The Face: Vapour Organic Beauty


Vapour Organic Beauty is continuing to impress me, not only has is given me my first perfect natural lipstick that is truly pigmented but it all has a range of skin products for all skin types and thankfully shades! Vapour Atmosphere Soft Focus and Luminous foundations comes in 12 shades 3 of which are suitable for olive to dark skin. Ok, so you all may not find your exact match but I have to give props to Vapour for even including darker shades in a relatively small range. I can name countless lines that do not even bother to include one shade for women of colour. 

I've been using Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfecter, Atmosphere Luminous Foundation and Illusionist Concealer. all from Being Content The combination has been working great in the current heat wave we are having in the UK. 


The Stratus Soft Focus Instant Skin Perfector in s902 (£47) is light weight and gives a velvety base for applying foundation. 

"The Skin Perfector is made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments and vitamins, with Organic Pumpkin and Papaya complex, essential fatty acid-rich Organic Evening Primrose, essential amino acid Lysine and skin supportive Silica. Stratus is infused with Vapour’s face-specific infusion of anti-inflammatory Frankincense, antioxidant Tulsi, and moisturising Lotus flowers"



I loved the fact that the Skin Perfector is light weight, it also combats oily skin without leaving it to dry looking so you are left with velvety skin as opposed to matte skin. It has a kind of metallic finish which reflects the light giving you fresh youthful looking skin.



The Illusionist concealer (£20)is great too! I used under eyes and brows to brighten those areas 

"Illusionist Concealer is made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments and vitamins. Illusionist nourishes with Vapour’s face-specific infusion of anti-inflammatory Frankincense, antioxidant Tulsi and moisturising and calming Lotus flowers"


The hero products for me is the Atmosphere luminous Foundation (£35) which like many Vapour products comes in stick form. It's great for quick application, I apply like I'm going into war (which is accurate most days!) and blend with my trust eco styler buffer brush for a perfect finish

"Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments and vitamins. Atmosphere nourishes with Vapour’s face-specific infusion of anti-inflammatory Frankincense, antioxidant Tulsi, and moisturising and calming Lotus flowers"


I have The Illusionist Concealer in 040 and the Atmosphere Foundation in 150 which is for dark skin with red undertones, Vapour id one of the few natural brands I've found that have shades for black women, I can be quite frustrating trying to find ethical, sustainable  and organic products that are suitable. Thankfully brands like Vapour are making way for more brand to expand their shade selection




Vapour is great if you want the look of naturally perfect skin, it's not going to cover all imperfections, but I'm not sure that that's a bad thing! I find it gives me that no make up make up look as opposed to the over done look (which has it's place don't get me wrong!) even with wearing a primer, concealer and foundation the products are still light weight. 



Vapour is a luxury organic line, Which is reflected in the price, so this is more along the lines of Bobbie Brown in terms of price with the added advantage of all the vapour products in this review being 100% natural. I've found vapour products to be fuss free and high performance. You can check out more Vapour products and other luxury natural brands at www.beingcontent.com
