Review: Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi Use Classic in Artemis

Packaged in one of Vapour’s signature blueish-purple recyclable tubes, Artemis was developed as a collaboration with world-renowned yoga teacher and author, Kathryn Budig. Named for the Greek goddess of the hunt, Artemis is a gorgeous punch of cool-toned berry pink that will look stunning on a variety of skin tones. Not to mention, something about this product's name and archer-focused marketing scheme brings out my inner Viking princess whenever I use it! Vapour's Aura Multi Use Creams retail at $36 USD for 0.24 oz (6.80 g) of product.

Finish

Although quite silky, this cream is not soft to the touch. The consistency is hard and there is such a minimal amount of slip that my first impression was that I purchased an expired product. Believe me, it gets much better! However, I really think that the color and pigmentation are what sell Vapour's lineup of goodies because they are not the easiest to work with! Artemis is a rich, cool-toned berry shade with a hint of mauve that is absolutely stunning! If I had to live with one blush color for the rest of my days, it would be this one! Bold statement, I know! On the cheeks, this shade imparts a natural flush that is perfect for everyday, yet can easily be glammed up for a special occasion. This shade is so incredibly flattering that it also looks phenomenal on the eyes and lips! There is an almost undetectable shimmer suspended throughout this cream that provides a stunning, subtle radiance. Artemis is slightly dewy when first applied and maintains its fresh, luminous finish throughout hours of wear.

Application

I have to be forthright and mention that all of the Vapour products that I have tested out have been difficult to use. There is a learning curve in terms of the best way to work with each of their products and Artemis is no exception. For me, the trick is to warm this product up on the back of my hand before applying it with my fingers. Once warm, this cream melts beautifully into the skin and it blends effortlessly! The pigmentation is so on point that a little goes a long way, but it also layers incredibly well. As this hue is quite rich and intense, I like to build up color by applying 2-3 thin layers of product. While I do find that it lasts longer when set with a powder (especially when used as an eye shadow), the color remains vibrant and doesn't seem to get muddied with my foundation.

Wrap-Up

The color of Artemis is unreal gorgeous! I am absolutely smitten with this hue! It creates the perfect natural flush, but is also quite glamorous and seductive. Although I wish that the formulation were softer and creamier, once warmed up a bit, this product melts flawlessly into the skin without ever looking greasy or cakey. As a multi use cream, this shade is incredibly versatile and looks stunning on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Artemis is packed with great ingredients and blends evenly onto the skin for a natural, luminous finish that wears incredibly well. The subtle shimmer adds a beautiful radiance too! Overall, I have really been enjoying this product and I am so happy to have finally figured out how to use Vapour's products to their fullest potential!

Artemis is a limited edition shade, so keep an eye out for a sale before it is too late!
