Holy Grail Status.I've been trying everything. Estée Lauder Double wear. Armani Luminous Silk. Loreal True Match. MAC. Revlon Color Stay, Cover Fx Custom Cover Drops. All of this done in the search of a natural looking skin like foundation. My skin is pretty textured right now with scars from acne still lingering on my cheeks, clogged bumps under the skin due to new cleansers, and just all around unevenness. It hasn't been fun. I also have a tiny bit of redness in my NC-15 shade skin, N-10 in Cover fx, N1 in True Match. Add in lackluster, dehydrated, skin and yeah it's making for a poor looking month. Even so I was on the lookout for a slightly luminous Demi matte finish that looked natural but covered all my problems. I first learned about Dior air flash through Wayne Goss but thought 62$ for foundation in a can? Holy Cow. But lately I learned just how amazing Dior was when I got into the lip glow products. Then I bought a lipstick. And then I returned to that review and many more. I came here and read reviews, checked out YouTube, Reddit, etc. then I took the plunge. I tried deciding on 100 and 200 with the testers. I was nervous to see that 100 Linen was too dark and a bit too tan. Then I tried 200 Light beige and thought it could be a better match. I tested with a Sephora employee who honestly thought the testers had been switched because of how dark 100 was vs 200. She confirmed it was the better match and off I went. I did a trial run at home and was shocked how effortlessly this went on. I used an Atist knockoff, size of the second largest oval, and effortlessly buffed it into my skin. I need two sprays, sprayed directly into the brush, to get an all over even coverage. Even my boyfriend, who always tells me when my makeup looks heavy or cakey or doesn't match my skin, told me he loved this the best. Even in direct sunlight, which is my worst enemy in revealing every texture flaw, was flattering. However, as much as I love the look and coverage, I will note that it can look a bit drying on the skin. It really dries down to a powder like cling after a couple hours. On my current dry skin it does need a refresh, a spritz of rose water, to make it look like new again.Sorry for the long review but I'm honestly in love with a foundation for the first time, though Mac face and body is a close second. 5/5

Out of all the foundations I've tried which is quite a lot this is definitely one of the best! I use it by spraying on a Morphe Buffer brush M439 and it goes on so flawlessly. I spray three small bursts for my entire face so it goes a long way. It stays on perfectly all day, I don't get those horrible cracks under the eye area or orangey patches and it smells pleasant enough. Only thing I don't like is the fact I have no idea how much is left in the can but I can live with that if it means having a good foundation I'm totally happy with. It looks so light and luminous on the skin although I was sure it was too light for me when I was matched in store but in fact it's such an exact match that it looks like I'm not wearing anything. It completely evened out my complexion with a warm glow. Can't rate this product enough! This is definitely worth the money and is now my go to foundation :)

Super fine makeup that sits very well. Would say good coverage and build-able to med-full coverage. Takes awhile to get used to container and application. Best application method i've found is: spray onto flat brush and wipe on gently, then an extra one/two direct sprays on nose area, then pat in. I set with minimal amount of powder and kinda press it in more than brush it on. I find this makeup needs more attention during the day (touch-ups) but the trade off is gorgeous makeup and skin. Just take the foundation brush with you out and touch up with that, no need for the container as well.

My favorite, favorite, FAVORITE foundation. Is it because I'm lazy? Who knows. But I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. I'm shiny and dewy and dazzling after I spray my face with air flash....which is what I want to be as a dry skin girl who is obsessed with shiny skin; we always want what we can't have! I used the dior CC primer (also a spray) with this and I had full coverage, long lasting glowy goodness all day long. The coverage is extremely buildable. And even though it's a mist---SURPRISINGLY--a little bit goes a long way. Spraying it onto a brush and buffing it into your skin will seriously make you look like a movie star. However, as I implied earlier, I can be lazy and am usually always rushing off somewhere, so I just close my eyes, hold my breath, and mist it onto my face. Blend it in with a brush or my fingers and I'm fully covered and lovely and ready to go in no time at all. It's perfect for me. It should be noted that my skin can be a liiiiittle tricky what with lady hormones and all sometimes----Airflash never broke me out, and did a great job covering old red marks and hyperpigmentation that I usually need concealer for. Seriously, have I mentioned how baffled I am that such a fine mist can cover so well?!However. While I can't knock this product at all, there are Some things to be wary of for others, since we are not all the same:If you have oily skin, I can see this potentially making your face look like an oil slick. I have dry skin that sops up all moisture, and this made me look a little slip-slidey before I set with powder. I mean, glowy is great, but I don't think any body wants to look wet. That may be a hypothetical issue. The shades may be a little limited for some. Cameo is a bit too light for me but I can make it work since the formula is very blendable and smooth. Going to a darker shade is out of the question because there's too big of a disparity between shades and it would be way too dark for me; I'm not about that. It's so much easier to make a lighter shade work for your skin! Still, an "exact match" may be out of the question for some folks; but I feel the blendability (is that even a real word?) evens out the issue. And of course, the price. Even though this foundation lasts quite a long time---like seriously, I can't believe that a fine mist like this can have such a high coverage payoff----it's hard to realistically justify Dior prices for the average person regardless of how great their products are. For me, I'm ok with budgeting myself every couple of months for when I need to stock up. (If you purchase through a dept store/conglomerate retailer like I normally do, you may be able to earn points and discounts on a rewards card that can help.) I get that doing that is not for everyone and others can think of better things to budget towards. Still, none of these potential cons effect me personally and I hope Dior never stops making this product, or its friend: the lovely CC primer. Air flash works for me and gives me the EXACT dewy finish I long for, full coverage and long lasting in an instant. Can't live without it.

Took me awhile to purchase this foundation, I mean $62 dollars for a foundation is A LOT. But, decided to spoil myself on recent Sephora trip since it was my bday weekend. I was matched with Medium Beige 300, perfect match for MAC NC 30 to NC 35.Now onto the product itself. It can be sprayed directly onto face but that's messy and waste too much product. I spray the foundation onto back of my hand, then dot it onto my cheeks, forehead and neck. Then blend it all in with the beauty blender. OMG, this technique gives you the best coverage and most airbrushed look. The foundation itself has a very natural skin satin matte finish.Once blended in, I apply my UD Weightless concealer (another HG product) and other creams then set everything with Laura Mercier translucent loose powder. Bake undereyes, center of forehead, down the nose and under cheek contour. Dust everything away. Apply blush and set with skindinavia or UD all nighter. My full glam is locked it place and doesn't come off till I remove it.If you have the $$$ or get a gift card during bday. Definitely try out this foundation.

This is truly an amazing foundation! You need to know how to use it. I spray it on my hand and apply with a foundation brush. It looks natural and has adjustable coverage. You *can* spray directly on your face, but it may end up in your hair or on your clothes if you aren't careful. It comes in a 70 mL can, which lasts a while.

I'm 35 and I've never worn foundation before, mostly because I want my skin to look uncoated. I assumed foundation would look too coated for me. But I wanted to try wearing a foundation in my sister's wedding. I have large pores on my cheeks and a shiny t-zone than I want to de-emphasize in bridesmaid/wedding photos.I admit I didn't look very hard before I chose this one. I was clicking around nordstrom.com, saw this, thought the description sounded really nice, went to youtube to get foundation recommendations in general, searched for "best foundation for large pores" - and the first video I watched was Wayne Goss in love with Dior Airflash and gushing about how realistic the finish was. So I bought it. I do not mind at all that it's expensive - I'd much rather splurge on one thing that I will probably love, instead of trying multiple less expensive products and not loving any of them.I used youtube videos and blog swatches to to guess my shade since I don't have a Nordstrom store nearby. In hindsight maybe Nordstrom chat could have helped me with that, but I guessed on my own. I guessed 300 medium beige for caucasian skin type III in summer with a slight tan. I think that was a very good guess. 300 is just a little less pink than me and that's just what I wanted. I think if I buy again in winter I should try 200 light beige because I am more pale in winter.I sprayed it on a brush and then brushed it on - I LOVE it! It de-emphasized my pores, and evened out my color variations, and gave everything a really nice satin finish, not matte but not shiny either...and the finish was so realistic that when I was done I wasn't even sure if I had put it on at all. I felt very photogenic but at the same time I could barely tell that I was wearing it. That's pretty much exactly what I wanted.I was nervous about how my skin would react to the large number of unfamiliar ingredients - but it was fine. I have sensitive skin, and this has a lot of ingredients that I have never tried before on myself. The ingredient list actually makes it sound like lighter fluid instead of makeup. Butane etc. Normally I avoid untried ingredients. But it was fine. I wore it for 24 hours with no irritation at all. I like that it's paraben-free. That is one group of ingredients that I prefer to avoid for various reasons. I also like that there is no sunscreen in it. I know a lot of people prefer sunscreen in their foundation but I prefer no sunscreen.Staying power was excellent on me, but difficult to judge because the finish is so realistic and my color was a good match. I actually thought it was gone and rubbed off after 24 hours because I couldn't see it close up in the mirror. But when I washed my face I saw my large pores / pink cheeks / subtle color variations / shiny t-zone all go back to the way they were before I applied it, so I know it was still there. Just so realistic-looking that it was hard to tell it was on me at all.

It's the best foundation ever, covers up everything. You look like you airbrushed your skin with a diffuser and filter. So so lightweight, but so heavy duty. Doesn't even budge ever. Only issue is, it's just quite expensive!

I am fair skinned and the lightest shade 100, was just about right for me. It's easy to waste this if you're feeling lazy (like me) and don't spray it onto a brush first, but it's such a great product to achieve a flawless finish very quickly and easily. It is expensive in that it is a lot easier to go through than a cream foundation, but it is a really lovely foundation that I'll buy again one day!
