High Shine series: Vapor

Continuing on with the High Shine series, today’s feature is Vapor. Vapor looks innocent and pretty in its packaging, but is VERY pigmented. This is one of the few colors that I keep trying to wear – I’ll put it on, then take it off and start over with a different color. I have a tough time with this color, for some reason, and Vapor is half the reason I’m doing this High Shine series – I wanted the challenge.

This look is actually much prettier in person than it translates in pictures. The Joeli (lavender)  tones down the brightness of the Vapor, and Blue Moon adds a little glimmer and lightness.

I am also using a Buxom gloss that doesn’t get enough credit. Buxom Iris looks lavender in its tube, but when applied in a sheer layer over another lipcolor, it gives lips a pearly, iridescent shine.

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
