Vapour Aura multi-use blush swatches and review

     

    Vapour organic beauty is an organic make up line from the US that uses a high percentage of USDA certified ingredients and has a very pretty on trend colour palette. I do think the UK and Europe is behind in the organic make up stakes as much as I love to champion local skincare brands, when it comes to make up the most beautiful ranges seem to hail from across the pond. The line is free from mineral oil, parabens and silicones and instead the products have a great selection of ingredients including plant oils and beeswax. 

    Today I wanted to show you some of the beautiful blushers from the line, I have samples of each of these colours and they are so useful for trying to work out which colour may be best for you. The blushers all come in a stick format, they are different from some other cream blush brands such as RMS and Revolution organics because they are free from coconut oil, instead opting for sunflower oil, castor oil and beeswax in the formulation. In terms of consistency these are in my opinion perfect, not too dewy but they have a nice slip to them, hydrating without being too oily and with good lasting power. They are also cruelty free and leaping bunny approved, even though some shades do contain carmine so the range itself is not vegan. 

 In natural light with no flash
In artificial light, the beautiful shimmer of starlet is much more obvious. 

    Vapour organic multi use classic blush in Spark: Spark is described as a sheer pinky peach and is such an easy tone to wear for light to medium skin tones. This is a classic colour therefore it has no shimmer, whenever I wear this I become more convinced this is perhaps one of the most perfect daytime colours in my collection, a little of this blush brightens up the complexion instantly. 

    Vapour multi use classic blush in courtesan: Courtesan is a a classic rose pink, again very easy to wear and for me very close to my skins natural flush. This is a classic colour and the most pigmented of the three so may be suitable for slightly darker skin tones. 

    Vapour multi use shimmer blush in Starlet: This colour was the big surprise of the three, in the sample pot this looks incredibly dark almost like a burgundy shade but it sheers out on the complexion and turns in to a plummy pink shimmer. I love the fine gold shimmer, it is a very pretty shade for when you want some extra sparkle to your look. 

    I am really taken with all of these shades but I have added Spark to my spring wish list as it is so easy to wear. You can find Vapour at Naturisimo and Being Content samples start at £1 and the full size blush comes in at £29. Have you tried any Vapour products, if so what did you think?

  2. I own Courtesan and l love it. I understand that the price is a bit high on these, but the amount of product in the full size blush is huge and Courtesan is considered a multi-use product!

    1. I think they are well priced as you say they are multi purpose products, I haven't tried them on the lips yet but I think they are such great colours, well worth the splurge, after #nobuyjanuary of course ;) Xx
