This is the best foundation I've ever had, and the most ridiculously expensive one too. Brushing it on does need a bit technique and experience, applying with a brush is a lot easier. It is very light but covers nicely and the lightest shade is not too rosy. The only problem is that I have very oily skin and have to touch up and powder a lot, but less often than usual. It does not hold long for me!!! Therefor I do not use this for party's because it cannot stand sweat and oil. it turns into orange and your pores can be seen a mile away. I use the airflash for important things with a relatively short duration, such as dinners, lunches and congresses. Once you've put it on you don't have to worry about your complexion, which is very relaxing, because you look airbrushed and perfect. It is a very good product for the right occasion, but absolutely too expensive. I will buy it none the less!
I must say that I absolutely adore this product!! I was using Pure Light for few years and since it was discontinued I had to search for something new. Dior never fails... their products have an amazing quality to them. The mist feels like air, gives good coverage yet very natural finish. After few times I got the application technique perfected... Definitely worth the price, after all we get what we pay for.
So Peeved...Tested Dior Airflash Foundation today...looks flawless..feels amazing but has an orange tint to it! why oh why lol. I am fair, not pale in any sense and used the lightest one shade 200. Seriosuly one spray covers your enitre face leaving it airbrushed, flawless, like silk, doesnt get oily all day, yet the second I stood in my bright bathroom light notice a HUGE difference from my face to my neck and chest. Leaves such an orange tint for no reason in the light. im sorry but for $60 a can and from DIOR I expect way more. Sadly not my hg as I had hoped leaving me looking like those rediculously tan girls who go overboard and have burnt orange skin and bleach blonde hair....scary and unhuman lol! I really wanted to like this for it working so easily and being so conveneint in a spray and wasting less product but horrible color options. I am definitely now going to try the dupe for this aka Sally Hansen Carmindy Airbrush Spray Foundation at $13 a bottle and crossing my fingers it will leave my skin feeling jsut as nice without the whole oompa loompa tint to it!!!! lol
Im only 16 years old and am wearing about a 50 dollar product but its so far amazing. I been wearing it for a couple months now. I love how smooth it makes my skin and how nice it blends in. Also there is the option to spray it on straight to your face or on a brush. I prefer the brush because it blends in nicer and it lasts a lot longer:) the only problem I have is it makes my skin really oily. So I make sure to put on a primer and it been great for me so far:) I recomend this if you are looking for nice porcelin skin:)
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.
