Hands down the best foundation EVER!!!! I get tons of coverage but a light feeling on my skin. Wish it were less expensive though! I use it on myself and my clients for a great natural finnish that photographs beautifully for professional photography. Great for brides, great for everyone!
One word: LOVE.
I LOVE this foundation. It make my skin look naturally FLAWLESS. It also lasts so long without my oily skin making it look a hot mess! The few things it did that no other foundation has ever done for me; rid me of ALL of my redness, make my pores so much visibly smaller, and DID NOT BREAK ME OUT!
I was SO pleased with this foundation, when I ran out I immediately saved up so I could buy it again. The only thing I don't like is the price tag and I had a hard time figuring out how to gage when I was running really low. I was truly satisfied with this product and I have the hardest time with foundations because of my oily skin.
Give it a shot, it worked wonders for me! I just hope one day they price goes down ;D a girl can dream right?
id love to love this foundation its really good but not the best..at least for me
great coverage really good 5/5
i got this in 300 my complexion is light w/yellow undertones the reason i bought a darker shade is that i really want to have a sunkissed glow i didn't like it but its not bad i guess its my fault
id prefer a dewy finish but it matte
i wont repurchase cause i like to try dior nude ....
I think I might be the only one this is happening to, but will write this review to warn others who have this problem with many foundations.
This foundation went on lovely. The shade (200) matched well with my skin coloring. (a little light, but I usually like that).
But, about 2 hours after applying, it turned an ugly darker color. Orangish.
I have slightly oily skin that makes about 25% of foundations turn orangish. But usually takes at least half a day. This foundation turned visibly dark quickly.
Tried it 3 different times, same thing happened. 2 of those times I was just hanging out in my house. So the sun had no part in this.
Obviously this doesn't happen to everyone. But I thought I would warn others who have the same problem of foundations turning orange on them. Might save you some money.
Back to my BE mineral foundation I go......
I am on the constant search for the perfect foundation. This comes pretty damn close. I have actually REPURCHASED, which is unheard of for me. Yes, it is expensive. But, I've had my first bottle for over a month and am guessing I still have a week or two left in it. I'm guessing a can may last me 40-50 applications. You really don't need to reapply, just touch up with concealer or powder throughout the day. Gives great even coverage, and a natural finish. I am not impressed by color selection, as there are only 5, but I guess I was lucky and found a match. It actually makes me look like I have a slight tan, without looking orange. This is tricky, as I am quite fair skinned. Easy to apply by spraying in a Z and W formation on face, then blending with a powder brush. Definitely my favorite foundation so far. I wanted to wait for a month or so before reviewing so I could say it and believe it!
Am on a review-writing roll today, look out MUA! I am finally giving back to our community! :)
I love this foundation. Here is a little about my skin and foundation usage in general ...
About my foundation usage: I use powder foundations almost exclusively. Before Airflash, I could never stand the feel of foundation ... the tan fingers, the excess washed down the sink ... what a mess! Reminded me of caking it on in junior high or something. Not to mention I never found a good shade, it was always too pink, or too dry, or too matte, or too shimmery. Even with lots of spots to cover, I never liked foundation because it only accentuated my flaws and took TOO LONG to apply.
Enter Airflash: While I love it, I can see how some do not. I did a LOT of research before buying this, and how to apply it. I can't imagine spraying it on as it says. Tried it once and it got in my hair, all over the sink, a fine coating on my bathrobe, etc. No thanks! A sponge will just waste it; soaking up this expensive product isn't what you want to do. I don't own a foundation brush and didn't want to spend another $40 or so on one when I didn't think I would use this that much and maybe not even like it. I'd read that someone used a kabuki and this didn't sound like a good idea, but I tried it and it's great! Sounded messy, but no. I spray a quick spritz on the tip of the brush, apply it in a gentle circle on about 1/4 of my face and it works great. Almost all the foundation, if not all, comes off on your face so there is very little wastage or mess. My skin looks glowy and clear. I use it on days my skin is drier, or redder, or spottier, or just needs a little more coverage and color than a powder foundation. It feels light; almost like powder. For me, it is a little heavier of a feel than I am used to, but if you are used to liquid or a heavier foundation, I imagine this would be an awesome, lightweight treat!
Some say the finish is matte, some say dewy. It's more dewy than matte on me. The lighter I apply it, the more matte it is, and that is how I prefer it. Sometimes it's a little too dewy for my liking and accentuates pores. This is my only complaint about it. Strange, because it seems to apply differently each time, even when I do the exact same ritual, use a primer, etc. It's a little unpredictable, but I still like it, and if yu are fortunate enough to have better skin than I have, it might not be an issue for you.
About my skin: I have battled cystic acne and still do at 36. I have acne scars, fine lines, red spots--an overall mess. My skin isn't oily as is, but lots of cosmetics make it oily and just overall worse than it is. I have gotten very good at covering my messy face and finding products that work well for my very complex skin type.
If you're on the fence, get it from Sephora or somewhere with a generous return policy. It is certainly worth a try. The color selection is very limited, but because you can put it on lightly, I think most people could pull it off or tweak it with a light powder on top.
As with all my reviews, feel free to page me with questions as I have others! I know we spend a lot of time and money on all this stuff.
I'm not much for wearing much makeup, but I've found a quick routine with this product that works well and looks really natural.
I apply a *tiny* bit directly to a sponge and apply to my trouble areas (i.e. redness around my nose). Then I mix a bit with some light day lotion, and blend all over my face. That way I can get good coverage where I need it, and just a bit of evening out everywhere else. It also makes it last a long time, and makes the price less scary. Without lotion I find it to be heavy. It settles in my pores and makes my skin look flakey and very matte.
Colours are pretty dark/orange; 200 is perfect for me in the summer when I have a tan. Not usable in the winter. I also find the fragrances to be somewhat unpleasant and noticable. It's never good when a breeze comes up, and you suddenly notice that you can smell your foundation.
I love the Dior Airflash foundation! It gives a flawless looking finish to my skin, don't need concealer or powder at all. It does take a few tries to get the spraying down, but the bottle is designed very well in that it sprays the right amount in the right direction. It's definitely a matte finish, so I sometimes do add a bit of highlighter on top, depending on where I'm going. I bought this in the 202 to match my darker tanned skin from a vacation, but I think I'll need to check out the lighter shades as the tan fades.
Perhaps I will buy this again, if I don`t find my HG foundation. That`s the best foundation I have used so far, but I have not tried all of them yet. The thing of this is that it is a spray, which is so cool!. Since I have tried this, I`m going only for a spray foundations. When you know how to use it, you will love the spray foundations! I have never experienced the things the rest of the users wrote. My bathroom is never cover with it when I use it, neither are my clothes. Only my hair get a little of it, when I sprayed it, but I use always something to cover my hair and than this is not a problem at all! And I must always get it away of my brows, but this I can`t avoid. The 200 is perfect for my fair skin. I love the colour by the way, the best so far for me, and I have freckles, my skin is very fair, with pink cheeks, and yellow undertones. The foundation gave me a wonderful coverage for my freckles and my imperfections. The only bad think is that sometimes I apply too much or to little and it settles it my pores. It is no good combination with my Chanel powder (universel), but it is a wonderful combination with Dior`s bronzer (the limited Edition) and the Dior`s Shimmer. The foundation wear on it`s own is also perfect for me. I have combo skin, but the shine is no problem, as I think the foundation have pretty much powder itself.
I also don`t think that you get too little for the price. The spray is 70 ml and the most foundations are in 30 ml bottles. Here in Europe is between 45 and 50 Euros. I use it not so often, because I prefer tinted moisturizer for every day use or in the university, but I wear it always when I go out evening or sometimes when go shopping or go out in the city with friends. I mean I use it at least ones a week and it stays at my face at least 6 hours. I was whit it ones or two almost 18 hours and the foundation really stays. Of course look not so fresh as the first 10 hours, but there is no foundation that will stay perfect after 18 hours I think.
I love AirFlash! It is supermodel in a can! It takes a few tries to get the hang of spraying it on your face but it is well worth it. I don't need concealer or powder...I use my fingers or a sponge to smooth out the makeup and it truly makes me look flawless. It dries quickly and feels like you have nothing on. It is expensive$60+ but looking fabulous is worth every penny!
