Vapour is an organic and natural makeup brand. This review is for Vapour’s Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation which is said to smooth the appearance of the skin’s surface and to be good for all skin types. The company says this product is 100% natural, chemical free, and cruelty free.
The shade I tested and that is depicted, below, is S115.
This foundation comes in a cylindrical bottle made of frosted plastic. It has a pump through which you dispense the foundation.
This liquid foundation has a thin, watery consistency. The formula is also oily; the ingredients list several oils as the most predominant ingredients. It left a very dewy finish and I had to set the product with powder.
The foundation also has a strong fragrance. It lingered even after application and setting with powder. The scent was faint after application, but I still noticed it once in a while during the day.
You’ll get medium coverage from this foundation. I had to blot my face sooner than usual because the area around my nose got oily-looking after about 1.5 hours of wear.
Besides needing to blot more than usual to keep the oiliness at bay, the foundation wore well until I took it off after 10 hours. It didn’t fade or become blotchy. I can’t speak to how it will wear if you don’t set it with foundation, though.
Ultimately, this is a good foundation if you suffer from dry skin. The oils in the product will help keep a protective layer over your skin and help it not dry out. And, of course, this is a good foundation if you have oily skin and are looking for a natural or organic product. But I wish the foundation were also suitable for normal-to-oily skin types and didn’t have a scent to it.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
The foundation shows streakiness when applied with a foundation brush, but setting it with powder fixes this problem.
For $48.00 you get 1.14 ounces of product. This is slightly more than you normally get with a liquid foundation (1 ounce) but is also on the pricier side. You should expect to pay more, though, when you’re purchasing organic products.
