Good evening Zombies!
Man, I am SO behind on posts, so please bear with me as I try and get through everything in the next couple of days.
I was given the opportunity to try and review the Pro Airbrush System from Luminess Air. And wanted to show you my inital thoughts. I have only tested this system once (on my Mom) so I can not make a definitive review on how it works with my skin tone. I will make several follow up posts to this one.
The system came quickly in a nice box within a box.
And this is what the kit came with:
I love the pretty silver clutch! It holds everything perfectly for easy mobility and storage.
As you can see, the kit includes 4 foundation colors, a primer, a blush, a bronzer, and an airbrush glow. I was also sent 3 eyeshadow colors to try out. (There is also an instructional DVD and handout in every kit.)
The "air gun" and pump are gorgeous! The gun is so shiny and sturdy. This particular model has 3 speeds, allowing for light, medium, or full coverage foundation. The air pump itself is white with an embossed butterfly decal on the front. Gorgeous!
I found this quite easy to use. At first, being unfamiliar, I applied TOO much foundation on my subject, but it was an easy fix and I was able to blend the foundation with the gun without having to touch her face with a brush to blend. The blush DID come out heavy, but I think it was because it was the complete wrong color for my subject's skin tone. You also MUST make sure you shake, shake, shake the bottles to blend the product, as it seems to settle.
I had fun applying the eyeshadow as well. With a light hand, you can create just as fun a look as you would with brushes and regular pan/ loose eyeshadow. Same with the bronzer!
I most likely would never use this product on a daily basis (on myself) because it is quite pricey and I know the foundation and eyeshadow are a bit out of my price range as well. I think this kit would be amazing for a professional makeup artist and I'm actually considering offering my services for proms or special occasions with this airbrush. It was fun, it was easy, and it took a fraction of the time to apply the foundation as compared to my normal makeup routine.
Let's compare before and after, shall we?
As you can see, the foundation (Shade 3) DID cover some of the more noticeable age spots on my lovely Moms face. It also gave her skin a subtle radiance and evened out the appearance of some of the deeper lines and wrinkles. I truly didn't notice this fully until I studied the before and after pictures closely.
I am excited to try this on myself and see if my opinion changes about 'daily usage.' I will do a series of posts, so please stay tuned.
Would/have you tried and airbrush makeup system? What are your thoughts?
