Here is why I like it so much:
Color: This stain is very pigmented, and the color is very rich, and so beautiful! The shade I chose, Enchant, is described as a "warm red with rich brown undertone", which I find to be an accurate description. When I blend it in on my cheeks it gives me the same healthy reddish flush that I get after jogging. Being a multi-purpose product, (love these ones!) I have tried to use it on both cheeks and lips, (I do not like reddish tones on my eye lids), and have liked it on both. So I swatched it on my lips for you to see it:

Although I am not a bold-lip habitual wearer, I enjoyed this color on my lips, as it did not feel like it was screaming on my face.
Scent/Taste: No taste, and I cannot recognize any particular scent.
Consistency: When I first opened the tube, it seemed to have a very dry texture. When I touched it, it felt more like a dry balm. It is the type of product that you need to play with in order to understand how to use it. Fingers' warmth can make the consistency more creamy. It Works better on a well moisturized face. On my lips it feels slightly drying, (like a matte lipstick), so I like to wear lip balm underneath, but you could also simply add a gloss on top, if you like.
Application: I touch the product with my fingertip in a circular motion and wait until I feel that the product is warming up, then I dab it on my cheeks and blend it. I do not recommend putting the tube straight on your face, because adding as you go with fingers gives you more control on where you want it, and how much you need. On lips can be applied like a regular matte lipstick.

Final Thoughts: I am really enjoying this stain. I like how it does not feel like it is sitting on your skin, but at the same time it does not get absorbed by it. It stays put all day long. I think that this was one of my best buys, as I can use it for both cheeks and lips, and I expect the tube to last me for a long time. I will definitely purchase more Vapour blushes in different shades.
