ON AIR: Distant Shore – Karen Elson

Here we are: after two strict months of skincare reviews, I’m ready to talk about some of my fave makeup products. You know I’m not a professional mua but I’m so fascinated by the world of makeup. Especially when it comes to natural products.

We’ve partnered with Vapour Organic Beauty. Are you ready to know more about my latest favorite multi use product? But before you need to know something about this brand.

Everything began in Taos, New Mexico, where founders Krysia Boinis and Kristine Keheley create Vapour inspired by its light and energy. Krysia’s knowledge of healing botanicals and alchemical blending create products greater than the sum of their parts. To Kristine color is a language and has a life force.  Her masterful blending of natural mineral pigments creates Vapour’s palette of modern, classic Fine Art Infused Color. Vapour truly blurs the line between skincare and makeup, suspending gorgeous color blends in concentrated, moisturizing bases bursting with antioxidant activity.

I love multi purpose products ’cause they are so versatile and often easy to use and perfect for the girls on-the-go. I tried their Aura Multi Use Classic in Courtesan.

What is it? 

Aura is an essential tool in creating your naturally radiant look, from monochromatic elegance to a fresh pop of color.

How to use it? 

The stick ensures a perfect application to eyes, lips and cheeks with one easy swipe.

Final Verdict: 

Vapour Aura in Courtesan is a classic rose beautifully blendable blush, lipstick and eyeshadow. It makes your face looking fresh and radiant. I love to use it on cheeks and eyes to give my face a lovely  “homogeneity”. What I like the most is that it gives you a youthful magical touch. I also use it on lips when I do not want to wear an heavy layer but I still need a touch of color. It doesn’t dry out your lips and doesn’t make me breakout. It’s highly pigmented, you’ll need almost just one swipe to see a full layer of color. It’s one of the best long lasting products I’ve ever tried: traditional blush barely lasts so long on me. I always carry it in my bag, ’cause it’s a real life saver!

And now a bonus: Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfecting Primer in S904!

What is it? 

An essential multi-tasking primer for a complexion that glows!

How to use it? 

Dispense 2-3 pumps onto fingertips. Dot on skin and blend!

Final Verdict: 

I’m not a primer girl. Or I’d better say that I’ve never found a primer that completely satisfied me (they were too greasy, they made me breakout..). But now I’ve tested Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfecting Primer in S904, I can’t stay without! Use Stratus for a refined and radiant canvas. This primer helps balancing skin, smoothing texture and blurring lines. It instantly “dries out” so you can quickly continue with your makeup routine and the application of your foundation. It adds your face a soft, satin finish. Foundation lasts longer and stays fresher, fine lines are less visible and face shows a subtle radiant background. Girls, I’m in love!
