Vapour Beauty has been on our radar for a while and when they brought out their new foundation we just knew we had to try it! And very kindly and generously of Vapour Beauty, they sent us 8 full-sized (30ml) bottles to try out!!!
Vapour Organic Beauty is a pioneering indie cosmetics brand with a modern point of view. Vapour Beauty was founded in 2009 and based in Taos, New Mexico. Inspired by the purity of light and the elemental energy of Taos, NM, renegade natural beauty pioneers Krysia Boinis and Kristine Keheley lead the evolution of clean colour cosmetics. The name came from Vapour (noun) /vå-por, defined as water molecules dispersed in the air.
Vapour Beauty embodies a powerful yet understated strength and wild beauty. And we are not just saying that; the brand prides itself on being at one with nature and finding serenity in the landscape of Taos. What we love about the brand is it takes deep influences from their home and the products capture this magical essence of the brilliant light of Taos. This brings softly illuminating colour into their products and acts to contour the face effortlessly but still look natural and feel like a luxurious product.
Since its inception, Vapour Beauty has been a clean and sustainable beauty brand that challenges convention. Gone are the concessions over texture, comfort, long wear and colour payoff. There is more at stake for the beauty industry, it is not just about how you look; contradicting the purpose and original values of make-up, but it is now just as important to carry yourself in the same way and be sustainable. There is a rising demand for transparency in the beauty industry and Vapour Beauty is doing exactly that.
Vapour Beauty is deeply committed to-
Cruelty-free animal testing
Transparency with the ingredients and sourcing
Enhancing beauty across the spectrums of age
Race and gender

So, let us get into the fun bit, the products! Firstly their all-new packaging was elegant and minimal, as well as being mindfully packed using eco-friendly material. Vapour Beauty is taking responsibility for their packaging because they believe every little choice counts towards making a real difference.
We received Vapour Soft Focus Foundation in the shades 120S (Light-medium, pink undertones), 123S (Light-medium, yellow undertones), 125S (Medium, neutral undertones) and 130S (Medium, yellow undertones).
The serum was the exact consistency you want from a foundation, not too thick it feels heavy but not too thin you have to use an excessive amount. The consistency of the foundation when applied to the skin is smooth enough to easily apply with a beauty blender or a brush. It felt moisturising on the skin and not oily. The foundation has an easy-to-blend formula with buildable medium to full coverage. Infused with Fine Art Colour (Red, Green, Blue (RGB)) and skin-nourishing botanicals, it leaves the skin with a sensuous satin finish.
