Vapour Beauty Elixir Lip Gloss, Siren Lipstick, Solar Translucent Bronzer & Aura Multi-Use Blush Review (and swatches)




Vapour Organic Beauty is an amazing brand in my opinion, and one of the best organic lines available. With ultra-chic, fashion-forward packaging, and every product containing at least 70% Certified Organic ingredients - the other 30% comprising of natural mineral pigment (no carcinogenic synthetic colours here, thank you very much!), Vapour Beauty is a clean, high-performance line.

They are also of course Cruelty Free, but not vegan due to some shades (not all) containing Carmine, and also some products contain beeswax. 

Vapour Beauty is available in Australia from Emporio Organico, and you can shop online or at their flagship store in Sydney (tell them I said hi if you pop in!). 

The first product I tried from Vapour was the Soft Focus Foundation (liquid), and the Soft Focus Primer. I still love both, but I'm going to be reviewing the Vapour Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Honor & Beguile, Solar Translucent Bronzer in Spicy, Siren Lipstick in Chere & the Aura Classic Multi-Use Blush in Spark.


Vapour Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Honor Beguile

Both shades are absolutely beautiful layered over lipstick, or worn on their own. 
I love anything in the range of mid-tone rose pinks, berries and mauves, to peachy-pinks (as long as they aren't too peachy), and these shades fit perfectly within that spectrum. 

The Vapour Elixir Glosses are high-shine, but completely non-sticky. 
They go on smooth and slick - liquid hydration. They keep my lips moisturised all day long, and the colour is translucent, and can be layered for more intense pigment, or worn sheer. I also love to layer these over lipstick, as mentioned, as a no-fuss touch-up throughout the day.

The packaging is just beautiful. 
It feels high-quality (as with all Vapour products) and looks chic. Instead of the usual sponge-type doe-foot applicator, these glosses have a very small brush tip. This surprised me at first but I actually really like it. It is smaller than most applicators, which makes precise application a breeze.

I'm absolutely loving these and have been reaching for them daily.  

Honor is the prettiest peachy-pink shade, with a very fine shimmer throughout. This isn't the chunky, glittery or frosted lip of your teens; rather, a fine particle that adds higher shine and added dimension to the lips - giving the appearance of a fuller pout. 

Beguile is a warm, clear berry mauve. It is a my-lips-but-better shade, creme and high gloss. 



Vapour Organic Beauty Siren Lipstick in Chere

I have mentioned on Instagram in the past how much I love the Vapour Lipsticks. 
They have an amazing range of modern shades, a creamy formula that is very hydrating to the lips (but not too creamy) and good pigment. The super slim tube is also a huge bonus for me - it takes up virtually no room in my bag, and because the bullet it so slim, it also makes application easy without a mirror. 

The shade Chere is a really pretty colour, and one I fell in love with the instant I opened the tube. 
It is described as a soft, mauve nude. 

Applied lightly, this is an accurate description. But, when you layer it or apply more heavily, the colour is the most unique, gorgeous plummy-mauve-nude, with the slightest silvery, grey undertone. 
The shade is quite complex and fascinating to me - don't freak out about that greyish undertone mention - you won't look dead. If I'm wearing this lipstick applied lightly, I'm fine with whatever shade blush in the light to mid tone peaches, pinks and blue-based pinks. 

However, if I'm layering it up, I opt for a more plum-toned or deeper rose, mauve toned blush. The effect is absolutely beautiful. This shade would also work really well for more tanned, olive or dark complexions. It is a very flattering, wearable nude that won't make you look washed out, and I love throwing it on if I'm wearing very little other make-up, as it just pulls everything together effortlessly.


Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer in Spicy

This is the darkest Vapour Bronzer shade. Now, if you have a much darker skin tone than mine (light to medium), don't dismiss this product just because I can make it work for me. It is absolutely a rich enough shade for more tanned skin tones, but it blends so beautifully that even those with lighter skin tones are able to wear it. Blending is key, and using a light hand.

I don't wear a heavily bronzed look, it isn't the most flattering with my colouring, but to bring warmth and definition into my face, I do like to use a darker, warm bronzer like this for a subtle contour. I tend to just place a little underneath the cheekbones (only at the sides, not bringing it around further forward onto the face), and also underneath the jawline. 

There is no shimmer present in the shade Spicy whatsoever (the other options have shimmer), it has a matte, but dewy finish. The colour is a rich, warm deep bronze tone - no orange, or redness, and not at all fake looking. As mentioned above, it blends out beautifully. The Vapour Bronzer is also quite pigmented, so a little goes a long way, but you can definitely layer it up for more intense colour. 

I love the stick packaging of Vapour. Not only are the products ultra-sleek in my make-up bag (or handbag), but it is also a really quick, no-mess, no-fuss application method. You can draw the bronzer directly onto the skin for precise application, use a brush or fingertips - whichever you prefer. I personally love drawing it directly onto the skin, then blending out with a brush or my fingertips. It makes it SO quick and easy, and also makes placement a breeze. 



Vapour Beauty Aura Classic Multi-Use Blush in Spark

Soft, creamy and with a dewy finish, this blush is fast becoming another favourite. 
The shade Spark is the perfect match to the Honor Lip Gloss - a really pretty peachy-pink. 
It looks super fresh and natural on the cheeks, and is also creamy enough to be comfortable and last on the lips, but dry enough to be long lasting and not fade on the cheeks. The colour is quite pigmented, blends easily and also builds well. I like to apply cream blush by warming with my fingertips, tapping into the skin then blending with a brush if required.

You can also of course apply it to the skin direct from the stick, if you prefer. I've been wearing this on my lips and cheeks together, for an effortlessly fresh-faced, put-together look, and again the sleek packaging makes it convenient to slide into my bag for touch-ups on the go. 

If you want to look fresh-faced, and achieve a glowing 'I woke up like this' look - Spark is your shade.
