I adore this product!
It's so easy once you get the hang of it. It took me a few tries though. The first time, it got all over my hair, so now I wrap my hair in a towel first. less is more! I over-applied a couple of times and looked caked on, but that was more my fault than the product. Now I just use a very light spray and it's really wonderful.
I use La Prairie Rose Illusion primer, Dior Airflash foundation, Dior Skinflash under eye concealer, then Armani Micro-fil loose powder, and it's a perfect finish.
Very expensive though, so lucky I only wear makeup on the weekends.
But it truly does deliver an airbrushed finish!
I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I love the way it makes my skin looks, it gives a great silken finish and your skin just looks amazing!!! like I have perfect gorgeous silky smooth skin!!
What I don't like is the spray, it makes such a mess, I usually get it on my hairline, eyebrows, eyelashes and its a pain getting the excess off.. it takes a while to blend everything in... and I find the spray just annoying, maybe its just me but I can't get used to spraying something on my face...
I love it and my makeup box would'nt be complete without it BUT I only use this for special occasions and not for everyday use simply because its messy and I find the packaging extremly annoying.
This foundation looks great on my skin! However, it just doesn't last as long as EL Double Wear. I have found that spraying the foundation onto a brush and then applying works much better than just closing my eyes and spraying onto my entire face. It is quite buildable, with just a little bit extra needed to cover any trouble areas (redness, zits). I think it is extremely expensive though, and probably won't buy it again because I like EL and MUFE foundations better and they are $20 cheaper.
I absolutely love this foundation. It covers beautifully, and is so easy to use. It also has a nice sheen to it, not too matte. I have two problems with it though. It is very expensive, and I've had trouble with the spray can. It will stop and start spraying, and will sometimes stop all together. I've only had it a month and it already seems to be empty. As much as I love the foundation I won't be buying it again. It's way too much money to spend once a month, especially if the sprayer is going to break halfway through a can of $60 foundation.
This is an amazing foundation. You can tailor the coverage so easily and the finish is beautiful. For a night out or special occasion I simply spray for a little longer to distribute a little more product than I would use for everyday. Then I use my brush to pat it down (you can use your fingers too, if you wish). Sometimes I spritz a little product on my 187 and touch up any areas that need more coverage, or on a concealer brush for more targeted touch ups.
I don't finish with powder, because I don't find it necessary. I have oily skin and I find that this keeps me shine free for a while.
The fact that this is in a aerosol can means that it is difficult to judge how much product is left, but it also means that it is light proof and air tight. Yay!
I would recommend this to everyone with skin like mine - normal to oily. It may be a little drying for dry skin, but I think a good moisturising primer would take care of that.
HG HG HG HG HG !!!!!!!!!!
I cannot say ENOUGH about this foundation!!!
I lightly pat concealer under my eyes and on any scars/blemishes, hold the can about 8 inches away from my face and slowly spray in a Z formation.
I then pat in any areas that need blending with my fingertips and my skin is FLAWLESS!
I hate that it's $60 a can and only lasts a little over a month, but after having suffered from cystic acne/scarring and winning that battle, $60 is a small price to pay for a can of self esteem.
This feels so airy and light, yet covers all my imperfections just as well as a full coverage foundations would!
I wear Light Beige 200 and in MAC I'm NC15 in the winter and NC20-25 in the summer. (Yes, I tan like it's nobodies business! :))
If you are hesitating buying this because of the price, please don't! If you get it home and hate it, you can always bring it back. But, I highly doubt anyone could hate this miracle! :)
Not practical for everyday use whatsoever. Very expensive and a bit messy but does do what it claims to - gives you an airbrush, soft finish. I use this whenever I'm going OUT.. to a club or a party, etc. Used it for a wedding I was the maid of honor in and it photographed VERY well.
I LOVE this foundation!! I have very oily skin, and this keeps it non-shiny for a few hours. (I have yet to find one that keeps my extremely oily face matte all day and night, w/o blotting and powdering.) It truly gives me that airbrushed look without even spraying it straight to my face. I tried that technique once and it was a disaster. What I do now is spray it onto a kabuki brush and buff it in. The result is AMAZING!! No need for a concealer with this foundation! This is one of the few that does not oxidize.
Edit: I am taking one lippie off for the price and the lack of color range.
I adore this foundation but at $60 a can it's my going out/special occassion makeup. It makes you look airbrushed and ethereal! The Dior MUA advised me to spray it on and then "push" it in with a Kabuki brush to even it out. I have also found that by applying a fair amount of a rosy cream blush before I spray the Airflash gives me that "lit from within" glow. Also, you may want to wear a shower cap when you apply or it will get in your hair.
I had been wanting to purchase this product for years, but just couldn't justify the price. I finally took the leap of faith. It is SO worth it. It has sat in my bathroom for a few weeks until I could figure out the best application method. I tried the tip another reviewer left and applied with a kabuki brush, PERFECTION! I have pale and freckled skin, I have never found a foundation that truly makes my skin look flawless until now. I decided to finish off new look with Smashbox Halo Perfecting Powder and it added a glow that made me look heavenly. I am scared of most bronzers because I am so pale and tend to look clownish. I did not look over done or cakey. I have spent so much time and money to finally find a product that works. It may cost $60, but when I think of all the money I have wasted buying product after product that did not work, this is easy and digestable.
