Beauty Heroes- Fall Makeup Discovery

To say I was excited to get Beauty Heroes Discovery this month would be an understatement!  I couldn’t wait to see what was in the box.  Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed!  Every month Beauty Heroes delivers green beauty’s finest in skincare, and hair.  However, now you can sample green beauty’s finest in makeup too every 3 months.  This box just gets better and better!  I know some didn’t love the idea of getting makeup as part of their regular Beauty Heroes box so they chose to just include it as an add on if people wanted makeup.  Then the regular Beauty Heroes box just stays consistent having skincare and hair products.

Well sign me up for the makeup!  I loved the first makeup selection Beauty Heroes had a couple months back, so I knew this time was going to be good.  This makeup selection’s hero product is Vapour Organic Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfecting Primer.  I had never tried it and boy was I in for a treat!  If you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes, read on below to get the full scoop.

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people.  Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands.  Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box.  The products typically range from skincare to haircare products.  However, every 3 months Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box as well that’s optional for members or non-members.  I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy.  By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them.  Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards.  What’s not to love about this whole concept?  As a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.

Ok, let’s chat about these all star makeup products!

Vapour Stratus Soft Focus Perfecting Primer-

This primer is unlike any I’ve used.  It completely fills in your skin and creates this clean canvas for your foundation to sit on.  It minimizes pores, evens skin tone and just gives your skin that glow we all crave.  I really was shocked how good my skin looked.  It gave it a lit from within glow once I applied my foundation.  The consistency is similar to a light lotion.  Vapour offers three different colors but Beauty Heroes opted to have the  S904- a pale baby pink color, that’s great for light to medium skin tones.  My skin doesn’t feel greasy at all but just hydrated.  I just applied one pump all over my face and waited a minute before applying my foundation.  The primer evens out texture too, creating the perfect surface for foundation.  It also works great on it’s own.  Great for those days when you don’t need that much coverage and just want to even out skin tone.  It’s also sweat and water resistant!  Yeah, pretty amazing.  The crazy part?  My makeup looked amazing well into the evening after applying it in the morning.  No doubt the primer played a role in it.  The ingredients are stellar too.  With organic pumpkin, herbs and elderberry-the combo packs a serious punch!  I had to take a picture for you guys to see the amazing results.  Below you will see the left side of my face is without the primer and foundation application as usual.  The right is with the primer and then foundation application.  Is it just me or does the right side look a whole lot better?!  I mean my skin is glowing on the right side!  Miracle product?  Maybe-you be the judge, all I can say is the proof is in the pudding.

Vapour Aura Multi Use Classic-

The sidekicks this month we’re just as good.  Vapour’s Multi Use Stick in Aura, a mauve with deep pink undertones, had me at first swipe!  The color is the perfect everyday color.  It literally would go with anything.  Best part? You can use it on your cheeks, lips, wherever you want to add a bit of color.  I loved the look it gave my cheeks.  It looked so natural, not over done at all.  The cream consistency is a dream as well.  I especially like cream blushes for colder months as the skin tends to be drier.  It gives that boost of dewiness our skin needs.  My lips loved it too.  It gave me a great neutral mauve color and stayed put for a while.  This multi use stick has me wanting one in every color!

Vapour Clarity Makeup Remover-

I never knew their was such a product!  I’ve used oils to remove my makeup but not one specifically made for makeup removal-genius!  Often makeup removers I’ve tried in the past were either more watery, or cream based.  But I love an oil!  This one is just all around fabulous.  I’m so sad it’s already gone(it was a sample size).  Since most of you know my love affair with oil cleansing, it’s no surprise this makeup remover became my jam.  I would apple a dime size about of oil to my hands, rub in circular motions to remove the makeup and then use a washcloth to wipe off.  And yes, it even removed all my eye makeup-no stinging or burning.  I didn’t even have any residual mascara the next morning when I woke up.  It removed everything!  This is a pretty big deal to me.  It’s been hard to find an oil that didn’t leave a residue.  I love this product!  Honestly, I can’t say enough good things.  It’s an all around winner in my book.  A must for any green beauty lover!

Well, that sums up my review of the Beauty Hero’s makeup selection.  I really can’t say enough about this month’s box-they hit it out of the park again!  The box can be purchased by Beauty Hero members and non-members here.  Did I mention the box is worth $101!  But if you’re a member you get 15% off making the box $38.25-a serious steal!  If you’re not a member it’s $45.  If you haven’t signed up for Beauty Heroes I highly recommend it.  You get the best of the best each month.  Also, if you’re a member be sure to hit up the Beauty Hero’s Shop where you get 15% off hero products.  Have you tried any of these makeup goodies?
