I wasn’t even really looking for my next great product. I had just ordered a bunch of samples from Spirit Beauty Lounge and so I thought I was good on the beauty front for a long time. But sometimes, when you aren’t looking or expecting anything, you find the one.
I stumbled upon Vapour Organic Beauty‘s Atmosphere Luminous Foundation while getting a blowout at my favorite organic salon – James Corbett Studios. I always find it such a treat to visit JCS because of their extensive natural beauty collection; I’m always a little too excited to play around with their products while I wait. Luckily, playtime paid off big time – hands down, this is the best foundation I have ever used, clean or not-so-clean.
I know that is a pretty bold statement but I literally haven’t had any complaints with it in the month I’ve been using it. It is ridiculously easy to apply, just quickly swipe across your face a few times, rub in and you’re done! Sometimes I can’t even tell if I’ve rubbed it in completely because it literally melts into my skin. Instead of leaving a slight dullness that is usually a foundation giveaway, my skin looks super dewy and fresh. It is so seamless that I often forget I’m wearing foundation whenever I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror throughout the day.
Once I realize I am actually wearing foundation, I’m always pleasantly surprised by its staying power. Thus far, the clean beauty products that I’ve used haven’t always had the best longevity. But they give me so much peace of mind that I really don’t mind another reapplication during the day. With this foundation, I don’t have to worry about reapplying at all – a single application usually lasts me approximately 8-9 hours.
As a caveat, for those of you with more oily / combination complexions, I might try a sample of this foundation out first before committing to a full size. I suspect the dewiness that it gives my skin (normal to normal dry in the winter), runs the risk of generating too much shine for your skin type. Fortunately, Vapour has another foundation that is recommended for oilier skins: Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation.
