After two weeks of trying varying combinations of Laura Mericer Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer , Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, and various primers I reached for one of my faves, Vapour Organic Atmosphere Luminous Foundation. I love this foundation from Vapour, its great for travel (TSA be dammed, more room other products) and you can layer it throughout the day without having your face feeling restricted or mask-like, oh, and it’s non-toxic. Follow after the jump for how it held up.
So this was my go-to while freelancing. I never really needed anything to hold up. Most of my work was telecommuting and when I did see clients, it was only for an hour or two, and this stuff was amazing. Also, using this for a year really cleared up my skin in a big way. But even with all of the primers I mentioned on Monday and Tuesday (Hourglass, Laura Mercier, E.L.F) it just didn’t do its thing, midday I had to add more and I felt really self-conscious about the way it looked, in the sense I was adding more foundation without also using a blush or bronzer because really that is too much work. This is not a long term solution. I even tried Urban Decay’s Beauty Balm as a primer and that also failed to improve the long term 6 hours + saying the power of this foundation.
