It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation

All skin types can use this. It has the anti-aging benefits of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, rose, aloe, niacin, and silk.  It was designed for those who have hyperpigmentation, rosacea, under eye circles, noticeable pores and wrinkles. This will really help, and you won’t look older, either. When you smile, you’re not going to “crack or crease,” as Jamie Kern, the Founder of It Cosmetics has said she had always experienced in the past with other foundations. This was tested for 3 years before coming to the market and was developed by plastic surgeons.

It feels very creamy, and applied very easily. Lasted all day!  The It Cosmetics Celebration is made without talc, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, mineral oil, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates.

The dual sided compact has the powder and mirror on top, and a small compartment that is under the powder that conceals a rubber sponge to apply wet or dry.

This is designed to be used with either the It Cosmetics Dual Airbrush Foundation Concealer brush or the one that I received, the Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush. (This can be bought separately at It Cosmetics, or included  in a deal at QVC.)

Swatch of the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Light

The Light shade was perfect for me. In fact, it was hard to photograph, because it blended in so smoothly and naturally. I knew that the Fair shade would be great, as the last purchase I made from It Cosmetics was the CC+ Cream with SPF 50+.  I purchased that in the color Light, which is the palest shade.

The It Cosmetics Celebration is available in Fair, Light, (Medium) Tan, and Rich.

Recommendation for It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation:

My skin can sometimes get dry patches, and I found that the way to have a beautiful “flawless” look is to apply my moisturizer and a primer  prior to using the Celebration Foundation. If you don’t have that issue, then you probably won’t have to do anything but apply the Foundation and, as advertised, in less than a minute you should be done!

No cons!

Vapour Organic Beauty: Foundations

Vapour Organic Beauty was founded by Krysia Boinis and Kristine Keheley, who had been working together for years designing and manufacturing products for other brands. Eric Sakas, a makeup artist and previous President of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, was looking for… “the next Big Thing in Cosmetics…it had to be unique and effective, something modern and revolutionary.”  Learning about the Vapour protype, it was “love at first sight.”

Vapour Beauty products are all made in the USA from 70% certified organic ingredients and 30% minerals & vitamins (that are not available as ‘certified organic’). Vapour Organic Beauty is certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny!

Vapour Organic Beauty has many products, and this review will focus on their two foundations that were sent for review: Atmosphere Luminous and Atmosphere Soft Focus. The Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is in stick form, and the Atmosphere Soft Focus is in an airless bottle.   

First: Vapour Organic Beauty’s Atmosphere Luminous Foundation:

Atmosphere Luminous Foundation
$34.00
Size: 9.64g/0.34 oz

This is the product that launched Vapour Beauty! The foundation can be applied either over Vapour Beauty’s primer (Stratus Instant Skin Perfector–which will be reviewed in a future post) or directly to your skin. The best way to begin to use this is to rub the stick foundation onto the front of your hand; that’s because the Luminous Foundation is activated by the warmth of one’s skin. Then gently apply the Foundation right from the tube, and blend with your fingers into your skin.  This can be applied to have light to medium coverage.

This formula is for normal, dry, mature and sensitive skin. I liked that because it was moisturizing for my skin, and it was not necessary to apply the previously mentioned Skin Perfector. This is great for two reasons: you don’t need to buy another product, and I felt that the coverage was great by itself. With just a small amount, my skin was soft, had a very natural finish, and it was more even in tone!  Vapour Beauty points out that your skin will glow, but not shine, and if it is shiny, you have over-applied.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Silica, Essential Oils & Natural Fruit Essences, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense)†, Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil)*, Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus Flowers)* [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Mica (CI 77019)]

* Certified Organic
† Wildcrafted

The next is: Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation

 Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation

$48.00
Size: 32.32g/1.14 oz

The Soft Focus collection balances all skin types, including sensitive, normal, combination and oily skin. The pump worked without any issues, and I love that the Foundation can be applied well with either my fingertips, or using a foundation brush. Experimenting with how much to use, very little was needed to achieve a natural, satin finish. As with the Luminous Foundation, the texture of my skin was soft, my pores were concealed.

Ingredients: Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Lecithin*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Silica, Essential Oils and Natural Fruit Essences, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense)†, Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil)*, Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus Flowers)* [+/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides(CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Mica (CI 77019)]

* Certified Organic
† Wildcrafted

The swatches of colors below, numbers 110 and 115, are the Atmosphere Luminous Foundation. The swatches number S110 and S115, are the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation. Photos can be clicked on to enlarge.

Photo below was taken inside, during the day, with no flash:

I can’t choose which one I liked “best.” I would highly recommend both, and can’t come up with tie-breakers, except the straight facts. There is a difference in price; also if you want medium to full coverage, use the Soft Focus Foundation, as the Luminous Foundation is light to medium. Neither one made me feel like I had a “mask” on, nor did they look heavy.

I hope the swatches were of some help, but Vapour Beauty has an excellent way to shop for a Foundation online. Complete the form provided, and the Experts will then help you to choose the foundation shade that is perfect for you! They can also guide you if you are unsure which foundation would be best for your needs. http://www.vapourbeauty.com/Customer-Service/freeshadeconsultation.asp
