About The Brand
Vapour Organic beauty was founded by makeup artist Eric Sakas, who discovered a revolutionary new makeup formula in Taos, New Mexico that was made exclusively of pure minerals and organic plant ingredients.
Vapour’s line of makeup has taken the beauty industry by storm. It is a totally natural and 70% organic formula that works just as well – if not better- than mainstream makeup.
Vapour’s goal is to create products that are pure, safe, and perform exceptionally well. They are committed to providing healthy products and sustaining environmental accountability.
If you are a regular reader, you know I have tried Vapour's Atmosphere Luminous Foundation which is formulated for dry and mature skin, and I mostly loved it, but it was a bit too luminous for my oily skin.
I knew I would probably love the Soft Focus Foundation, and I am happy to say that I was right (my teenage daughter loves it too). It feels great on my skin, offers good coverage, doesn't break me out, and lasts all day. I feel good putting it on my skin because it contains high-quality, natural ingredients.
After using this foundation for a couple of weeks, my skin looked healthier. I love that this foundation nourishes my skin while covering up any imperfections.
Vapour Organic Beauty makes some of my favorite makeup, they are dedicated to transparency in their ingredients and they strive to make healthy, high-preforming makeup. Their makeup works just as well as high-end conventional makeup, without the toxins.
Scent and Texture
There is a faint, herbal scent to this foundation.
Vapour Organic Soft Focus Foundation is a liquid foundation with a matte finish designed for normal, combination, and oily skin types. It comes in a pump bottle instead of stick form like the Luminous foundation does. One pump will cover your whole face.
The Soft Focus foundation can be applied with fingers, a brush, or a cosmetic sponge. The coverage can be light to full, depending on how much product you apply.
It is easy to over-apply this foundation which can create an oily, or shiny look. Start off with just a small amount of product and blend well, applying more if needed.

Who is This Product For:
For all skin types, but especially for sensitive, normal, oily, or combination skin.
How Well Does it Work?
It gives a natural looking finish that can be light or full. It allows your skin to breathe and blurs redness and fine lines.
How Does The Product Compare to Similar Products?
The Soft Focus Foundation offers exceptional performance without toxic ingredients such as phtalates, synthetic fragrances, and parabens that are found in most mainstream makeup. It is 100% waterless, so a little goes a long way. The pump bottle keeps the product from oxidizing and maintains freshness.
I love that this foundation doesn't contain coconut oil, as many natural foundations do. Coconut oil can be pore-clogging (not so great for my acne).
Vapour's other foundation (Luminous rather than Soft Focus) comes in a stick form and is formulated for dryer skin types.
How Long Will it Last? What is the Shelf Life?
I have been using this everyday for the past 2 months and I still have product left. You only need 1 pump to cover your face and the product should last you 3 - 4 months.
The shelf life is 1 year.
How Many Shades are Available?
Soft Focus comes in 12 different shades. The colors are beautiful and match various skin tones well.
I love this foundation. The ingredients are great, the coverage is good, it is easy to use, and it gives me a beautiful, natural look. The shades are very skin friendly, it doesn't settle into fine lines and wrinkles, and it feels light and airy.
The only con that people have with this foundation is that it is too shiny (this may just be due to over-application) or they find that the coverage is more medium than full.
