Best makeup products

Excellent product. I didn't use primer or foundation much, but this, along with Velvet Glow foundation, is brilliant. Use sparingly and allow to set before applying foundation. Illumination is subtle and natural. What is amazing is how natural Vapour products look, even in full sunlight . Blush and bronzers are equally excellent.

As good as it gets

Where has this been all my life?! Primers have always clogged my skin. Not this one! Can't be without.

First primer that worked for my sensitive skin

I know everyone with sensitive skin has different sensitivities, but this is the first primer that doesn't either irritate my skin or make my skin congested by the end of the day. I say it's worth a try!! Get the samples and witness the magic.

I LOVE the grippy feel once it sets, because it feels ready to grab onto my foundation. I have enlarged pores and scars, but this really blurs/minimizes them and makes me feel pretty. :) I use this then velvet glow and set it all with the pressed powder. I have such a difficult time finding skincare and beauty products that don't irritate my skin (even products made for irritated skin). This is the first brand that I have successfully been able to use multiple products - you don't know how huge a thing that is for me, and I would recommend anyone try them - especially this primer!

Absolutely Wanted to Love it!

Feels awesome on the skin, goes on smoothly, provides the perfect luminosity for mature skin and smells great! However, it settled into fine lines and wrinkles and did not wear very well at all, especially after spending a couple hours at the gym. I wanted to love it, but this makeup line is not for me.
