    Great idea with the video blogs! I have some questions about the foundation. I’ve read in some previous post that you like the 100% pure tinted moisturizer. How do these two foundations/tinted moisturizers compare? Do they give the same coverage (sheer/medium) or does one give more coverage than the other? Would you recommend the vapour foundation for oily skin, or uneven skintone? How’s the finish, dewy or matte?
    It would be helpful when you review products if you could tell what kind of skintype you have and what your “skin problems” are. I mean most often we buy products to help us with certain “problems” like dry skin, uneven skin, dull skin, dark spots etc.

    • Hi Maria! GREAT questions.

      I do love the 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer, and it’s definitely very different than the Vapour Atmosphere Foundation. The 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer is a medium/sheer-coverage product, while I’d say that the Atmosphere Foundation offers full coverage. (Atmosphere is GREAT for uneven skin tone!!)

      I use the Atmosphere Foundation for when I’m going out at night, a big gathering with friends, times when I know my picture will be taken a lot :), or other special occasions. I rarely wear it to work, but I could– it’s natural-looking.

      I use the 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer as a daily product– on the weekends, it’s all I wear, with maybe a little powder, to go out for a walk in the park or to the Farmers’ Market with my husband. On the weekdays, I wear it as moisturizer (mixed with a dab of Weleda’s Almond Intensive Facial Cream for extra moisturizing) under Bare Minerals Foundation, which covers up my blemishes and absorbs oil on my shiny skin.

      Which leads me to my skin– good question about what works for what skin types! I have very dry skin, but it is also shiny sometimes (I know! Lucky me!) so I find that with the Vapour Atmosphere foundation (or any foundation, really) I need a light dusting of powder over it. It is a very luminous foundation– it gives you a dewy rather than matte look– but I like to blot out a bit of shine, since that’s one of my issues.

      With the 100% Pure moisturizer, I find I get shiny, so I either use it under Bare Minerals as detailed above, or dust some Bare Minerals Mineral Veil over it on days when I don’t need a lot of coverage, just to absorb some shine.

      Of course, now that it’s winter, I’m finding shine to be less of a problem with both these products. I think my big cause of shininess is usually sweat 🙂

      I hope this answers your questions– PLEASE let me know if you have any more specifics you’d like me to answer!! I love to help, and I know it helps other readers to get this info from people who really use the products, so ask away! Let us know how the products work for you if you try either of them!

      Best,
      Emily

        Thanks for your very long and detailed answer. I think I really need to try the Atmosphere:) Even though it isn’t matte (I have combination skin), I think it would be great now in the winter. My skin tends to get a bit more dry during winter. I could do the dewy look during my good skin days:) Now off to write to Santa…:)

    Thank you for doing this (the blog AND the vlog)! I recently ordered samples of the Vapour foundation stick, which I liked, but I’d been wondering if the liquid form might be better for me. I’m so glad to know you liked it! I’ll give it a try.

    • Hi Katie! Thanks for watching/reading! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the liquid form of the Atmosphere Foundation. I think it’s just great! Were you able to choose a shade easily that worked well for you? That sampler of the foundations is a brilliant thing Vapour does. I think finding one’s shade is always the hardest part, so I love that they do that 🙂 Keep us posted! –Emily

    Thanks Emily – your vlog inspired me to finally give in and order some Vapour! I got the lip plumping elixir gloss in vivid and really like it a lot. I completely agree about the nice feel and color – a little shimmer but not too much. Plus they were awesome and not only sent everything super fast but also sent me a free elixir gloss which I am really liking!

    I also got the essential mini collection so I could try the foundation/blush out. As someone who also uses 100% pure daily I really love the foundation but agree with your assessment on when I would use it vs. 100% Pure. It has more coverage but none of the tinting properties so I will continue to use 100% Pure daily for throwing on before work but definitely go to this whenever I need more coverage or am more dressed up and going to wear more makeup on top of it. I am a very natural-looking makeup person so I love how this looks like I have nothing on but just have perfect skin! It also feels great (not drying but not greasy) and I don’t seem to have any shine issues (I also usually throw some Mineral Vail on top of my 100% pure for shine issues ).

    Finally, I also really like the multi-use blush in Spark. It is a great color for my pale with yellowish undertone complexion! I found I needed to put on more than I am used to with my old Nars standby (that I secretly still use when I need to look good because I have desperately been trying to find a replacement for it but just can’t seem to get the color and strength/lasting ability right yet) but I reapplied a little more a few minutes after I originally put it on (after the rubbing my cheeks redness had died down) and it looked great so we might be heading towards my replacement – if not it will definitely at least become my go-to for everyday- daytime wear!
