I'm new to Vapour Beauty, and tipped my big toe in the pond by ordering 5 samples. I received my sample of the Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfecting Primer and I can't gush enough about it. It's the first primer I've tried where I actually felt like it prepped my face for a smooth foundation application. It gives me a nice glow that lasts all day, and even in the Ohio humidity it keeps my makeup smooth and doesn't streak or separate on my face. Thank-you for making an awesome product!

Softness like no other
I don't use foundation daily, so this primer works beautifully on my routine to even out my skin. Lasts all day with a soft velvety feel. Blends great , and pairs well with the illusionist concealer over it. Highly recommend.

This is one of the best primer! It was love at first use not only is it a creamy texture but your makes your foundation stay on and give you an even finsih

soft and smooth
this liquidy primer feels really nutrient rich. I really enjoyed applying this on my dry skin in the winter. Definitely helped my complexion.
- Annie (3/01/17)
I wanted to love this primer. It's an ok product to me, but i love the ingredients. I have oily skin with acne and scarring so I like primers that help smooth out everything for flawless foundation application. It looked and felt nice when I first applied it, however under makeup I didn't like it as the function of a primer. It felt kind of gummy to me. I didn't see a difference in makeup application or length of wear (which is what I usually look for in a primer). It just didn't work for me and my skin, but I know many people who love it. Giving it an extra star for good ingredients.

This product is a must!
In the past I tried things like concealers, etc and other creams that were meant to minimize pores and so forth. Each one met with disappointment as it either didn't do anything or made my skin break out. Not with this product. I have combination skin and am in my 40's so there are lines and wrinkles to be found and some of my pores are larger. My skin is also sensitive so I'm skeptical to try anything. This was incredible!! Placed on clean dry skin, I could actually see it even my skin tone, minimize my pores and leave me with a very balanced feel to my skin. Even just wearing this alone made a big difference in my skin's look and feel. Applying before the foundation made my skin look that much more incredible with the application of foundation. It also made the foundation go on easier and perform better. I highly recommend this product. It did not weigh my skin down, clog my pores or make my skin tight. Just a nice breathable layer that evens out and prepares your skin for the foundation. No matter what you do, this product must be added to your routine.

So worth it!
I adore this product. If I could only have 1 thing from Vapour (please don't let that happen!) it would be this. I wear it everyday and I love the benefits that it has for my skin. I like a very minimal look and this is the perfect product.
- Sarah (3/01/17)
Wear it every day
I use this every day to even out my skin without foundation and under my foundation. Love it! Makes such a difference in how my skin feels.
- Christina (3/01/17)
I have mature skin and use this product over my moisturizer, to "even out tone" and it give my skin the look and feel of velvet. It gives a little matte as well, so no powder is needed.
- Mary (3/01/17)
Like silk on the face
I love this!!! I use it in my daily makeup routine.
- Ericka (8/22/16)
This product not only makes my skin look flawless, it feels delicate and applies easily.
- Anna Russell (7/27/16)
This product has a luxurious feel and is moisturizing too. I love the subtle glow it gives my skin for everyday use.
- Mary (7/03/16)
I am in love with this skin perfector. I have lupus, and i get black spots rashes often. This I can use without worrying about irritating my breakouts, while leaving my skin looking a feeling healthier. I use before my make up application or just by itself for a natural coverage.
- Yasha Miller (5/04/16)
I purchased a sample pack of various products and this was by far my most favorite one! It goes on smooth and not greasy. It will leave your skin bright and healthy looking! I definitely recommend this product.
- Cherece (3/16/16)
I have used this product for several years. I use it instead of foundation almost daily. Very soft, smooth feel.
- Jane (3/15/16)
Soft Focus, Glowy Skin!
I love the Stratus Skin perfector. It feels great on my skin and gives me a soft focus, glowy look. I prefer to wear it with foundation as I need some coverage. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I tried a sample of the product and will be placing an order soon.

Pretty Finish By Itself, Not Sure About It as a Primer
As a primer under foundation, I'm not sure it's worth the extra step -- I really I don't notice much difference at all. But, I do enjoy it for days when I don't wear other skin makeup. It give skin a lovely luminosity that slightly blurs imperfections without any substantial coverage. Works well for a very natural look!
Hi Caitie! Thank you for posting your feed-back. Stratus is complexion-enhancing primer that instantly balances skin, smooths texture and diffuses lines so that Atmosphere can be applied in conjunction for a flawless complexion. Stratus can be worn alone or underneath Atmosphere.

Great for oily skin & sensitive skin
I purchased 904 because Alma recommended it as a part of my free shade consultation. It moisturizes well (though I still use my normal moisturizer with SPF underneath). It evens out my skin tone, and gives me an overall bright, fresh look. Combining this with the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation results in coverage that looks better and lasts longer than other brands I've tried. This product has definitely won a permanent spot in my daily skincare and makeup routine!
- Allison (3/12/16)
I love this primer. It is light, feels good on my skin. Not greasy or heavy. Really helps my skin look flawless.
- Mandy Matheson (3/11/16)
Great for Balancing Skin Tone
This product gives my olive toned skin a fresh dewy look and evens out the tone. I love easy it is to apply and it blends right in seamlessly.
- Nicole Alsip (3/11/16)
Can't live without
I love that I can use soft focus by itself and I don't need foundation. It's the perfect "photo filter" for your face!
- Marija (3/11/16)
Light but perfect coverage
I am not a foundation wearer, but I do use this when I want to look more professional. It evens out my skin tone without feeling heavy, and it blends perfectly with my skin. I love how it just glides on. Perfect for helping to conceal my melasma and the bit of red around my nose and eyes.
- Emily (3/11/16)
True skin perfector!
I received a sample of the Stratus Instant Skin Perfector and I loved it! I ordered a bottle and it's almost gone. I use it as a primer and sometimes alone for a natural and fresh look. I highly recommend this product.
- Sarah (3/11/16)
Goes on smoothly on your face. Make sure you shake the bottle really well before applying to evenly distribute product. Dont apply too much or else it ends up looking too oily. A little bit of product goes a long way
- patricia armand (3/11/16)
My holy grail product!
I have dry skin that often looks sallow, greyish and lackluster, and the Stratus Soft Focus really transforms it! It's a very thick, oily product with sparkling mineral pigments that just gives the skin a glow from within. I'm using the shade s903, which is a lovely golden shade that matches my yellow undertones perfectly. It just gives my face glow and life! It's also an extension of my skincare, because it contains amazing natural oils. ALso great in combination with the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation!
- Teodora Litvai (3/11/16)
Was a little pricey for me, but I ended up trying it and wow I was not disappointed. Worth the price!
- Samantha (3/11/16)
Works as described!
I tried this as a sample and ended up loving it so much that I purchased a full size one. This product literally melts into your skin and primes your face for your foundation. It has that herbal smell which does go away if you're scent sensitive. But I have noticed that it makes my foundation last longer and stay put better as well. You won't be disappointed
- Annie (3/11/16)
I have oily, sensitive skin, and this primer really helps my foundation last all day. I apply it after my moisturizer and a few minutes before my foundation. It has a bit of a sticky texture, but I feel like that helps the foundation to stay in place, and it dries quickly. I'm very pleased with it and never plan to be without it.
- Catherine (12/13/15)
A MUST HAVE
This product is awesome! Hands down, it's the best primer! It makes my foundation just glide on and makes my skin look great (even used by itself). Gives a glow to the skin, but not a shiny glow; a healthy glow. This is one product that I must have. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't break it out or dry it out.
- DAWN WOLF (12/11/15)
I have become a big fan of this product. I like the way it evens the texture of my skin. I also find that I use less of my foundation and that the foundation applies more evenly. Some days, I just use Soft Focus and a few dabs of concealer. I'm recommending it to friends!
- Jennifer (12/11/15)
I have tried a ton of primers but this one is by far my favorite. It leaves my skin soft and smooth. The texture is thick but spreads so easily and smoothly. I am able to use this alone or with the Atmosphere Soft Focus foundation and I am happy with both results. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to achieve a clean soft complexion.
- Kristina Moya (12/10/15)
Perfect Skin Perfector!
I have enjoyed this wonderful skin perfector for years! I don't even need foundation with this product. It glides on so smoothly and makes my face feel so soft and luminous. LOVE Vapour! Thank you!
- Angie (12/10/15)
Better than foundation
I can live without foundation. I can't live without this skin perfector! It is amazing. I feel 100% more confident about how I look when I have this stuff on.
- Michelle (12/10/15)
This is a great primer. I wear it everyday. It has a subtle sparkle.
