This is one of the best foundations I have ever used. I loved it, it used to be my HG before BBcreams.
Texture: Very thin but very blendable. It dries out very fast so you have to go at it quickly. Heck you can just spray it on your face and it still looks flawless. Its thin but not streaky like some foundations. (MUFE Face and Body) It feels almost like water on your skin. It's so refreshing.
Coverage: Very good coverage. I would say medium. It covers nicely without looking flakey.
Shade: The range of shades sucks. I use 200 in the winter but I can never find a match for the summer. 202 is way too orangey for my taste. That shade is just yuck and 300 is wayyyy too dark. Oh Dior...if only you come out with more shades like the Forever line.
Oil Control: Bad. I use blot powder on top and suggest you do the same if you have oily skin.
Fragrance: I dislike Dior products' smell, its always so um...flowery? but I use perfume anyways, so its ok for me.
Overall, I love this for the winter. I have moved on to other foundations, but this is still one of my favorites.
All I have to say is.....WOW!! This product is absolutely amazing. Like other reviewers, I have tried everything for my rosacea-prone, dry skin. I spray this on a dry makeup wedge and stipple it on and it covers INSTANTLY, even in my reddest areas. I can't get over how light it feels, how little you need to cover so well, and that it lasts all day!
I tried to spray it directly from the can but didn't get great results - definitely recommend spraying it onto a sponge, brush, etc. Expensive at $60 but I will definitely buy again....and again....
HG foundation for sure! YAY!
This foundation is really nice but tricky to master. I found that it can be a little messy applying right from the cansiter. But the finish really is airbush quality, very light feel. The problem is definitely the shade selection. Foundation stays on all day, stays true to its color, doesnt break me out. There really isnt much foundation in there for the price.
The best foundation I've ever used, hands down. I've tried EVERYTHING - from Bare Minerals, to liquids to powders, and gave up because I couldnt find one I loved. So, I went bare-faced (and blotchy, ugh) for about a year. Airflash feels like nothing on my skin and leaves it poreless, smooth, even-toned - the way I wish my skin looked naturally. Shade 300 is absolutely perfect for me right now, but I may have to go lighter when fall/winter comes around. The trick is to apply it with the foundation brush from Dior (about $40, which is annoying but worth it). I spray Airflash directly on the brush, then use it to buff my entire face. The Dior sales rep said I'd get a lot more out of the can like this, because when you spray directly on your face, you waste unnecessary product. And I can NOT afford to waste a drop of this stuff - it's quite expensive at $60. I'm still on my first can so I hope it lasts long. My one and only gripe is that I get SLIGHTLY shiny in my T-zone right after applying it, so I just blot my face down with an oil-blotting sheet and I'm good to go for the rest of the day.
This is probably the best foundation I've used so far, but it's not perfect.
Pros: It really does give you an airbrushed look, and it lasts pretty much all day. I lightly spray the foundation on a kabuki brush and then apply it to each area of the face; the foundation blends in really easily and covers my imperfections with the first sweep of the brush, reducing the need for additional touch-ups. The best part is that this coverage lasts throughout the day, making me look perfectly polished and not overdone.
Cons: My biggest problem is the shade selection. I have very fair skin and use the Ivory shade in pretty much every foundation I buy. Unfortunately Airflash doesnít come in Ivory; the lightest colour is one shade darker, which is one shade too dark for me. Not only is it too dark, but it has an orange tint to it, making me look like I have a fake tan. I can only pull this off right after Iíve had a lot of sun exposure, such as a week at the beach, when the tan is still dark and more intense. Another issue with the foundation is that it smears. Whether itís wiping my mouth with a napkin after eating, or wiping my forehead with a towel at the gym, I find the foundation transfers off really easily from certain parts of the face. This could be linked to over-applying, but Iíve never had this problem with any other foundations. Lastly, the application can be a bit messy. Even though I use a wide brush, the aerosol still sprays little coloured particles everywhere, including on my bathroom sink and counter. Again, not an issue Iíve ever had before.
Overall the pros do outweigh most of the cons, but because of the shade selection I can only pull this off during the summers when I'm in the sun a lot. I guess that means my quest for the perfect foundation continues.
Good news and bad news on this foundation. Good news - it makes my skin absolutely poreless and smooth and gives it this airbrushed effect that is GORGEOUS! Bad news - within a few minutes it turned this hideous early 70's Coppertone orange color.I bought the 200, the lightest shade. I tried varying the application between "as directed" and with a kabuki brush. I tried it with nothing on my skin under the foundation, and with and without powder. Still orange. Picture an Oompa Loompa after Botox and Juvederm. Oh, sure, I'm one hot-looking Oompa Loomp, but that was not my goal. Would I buy it again? Are you kidding? I'm not even buying it this time! The store where I purchased it is almost 2 hours from my home - and it is worth the gas money to hand deliver this $65 dollar nightmare back to them for a speedy refund.
I bought this foundation around 8 months ago when I got it home I sprayed it on my face. I hated it, the makeup was thick, I could not spread it so it sat in with my cosmetics for months. Tonight after looking at all the rave reviews for this makeup I remembered buying it, so I found it at the bottom of a draw and tried it again spraying it on my wrist, at first it went on thick and horrible than I realized that I had to hold it further away from skin and actually spray it on my face not my wrist...WELL it went on beautifully, I looked in the mirror and could not believe how smooth and beautiful my skin looked. I am not sure yet that the color is right because it is night time and I like to check the color of my foundation in daylight, but I am so surprised how beautiful it actually looks when you apply it correctly
Absolute love, my m-i-l bought this for me after raving about it herself. A little goes a long way, and covers so well, with a satiny smooth flawless finish. It is a little messy like other reviews but worth it for special occasions, def a HG for me.
I love dior airflash. I shake the can, wrap my hair to prevent overspray, close my eyes and spray it lightly over my face in a Z. I must cover hair or it will go on hairline. I've got some lines around my eyes so I take a sponge and dab any make-up that shows off my creases. I'm 60 and it makes my skin look flawless. Just a note however, there was a bad batch of spray cans that would stop spraying. I returned them to Nordstrom's for replacement. I don't think this is an issue anymore. Overall I love the product. Less is more. It is expensive but last 4 to 6 months. Enjoy!
I absolutely loooove this foundation! I'm young but I have experimented a lot with high end makeup as my skin is very sensitive and doesn't tolerate much from drugstores. However, my mom also loves it, too! After a lot of experimenting and practice, I found the perfect application method: I spray it directly on a kabuki brush and buff it onto my face, part by part. My skin looks absolutely flawless! And it's very moisturizing and doesn't transfer during the summer heat, which I love. Def my HG foundation! :)
