LuminessAir review

I can't even begin to describe my excitement as my LuminessAir airbrush system arrived! I heard great things about the system previously and couldn't wait to try it out for myself! I have a thyroid condition so I was anxious to try anything with good coverage to mask the redness on my cheeks, I will divulge all about my results later in this post. I got the iLuminess package ($229.90 value). I text messaged a bunch of my friends and told them that my airbrush system arrived and even displayed my excitement on my personal Facebook page. Many of my friends inquired about it and a few of them even asked if I would airbrush their foundation for upcoming social events. They were very pleased with the results, and so was I!

Even the carrying case looks awesome, how cool is this?! I love the bright shiny silver color, the pattern, just everything looks awesome and it's very eye-catching!

How professional does this stylus look? It's extremely easy to use! When I was airbrushing my best friend's foundation, she said "That thing in your hand looks so professional!" :) I felt like a professional with the stylus in my hand, applying coat after coat to my friend's, my sister's, and my mother's face.

I recieved a moisturizing primer, three shades of foundation, a bronzer, a blush, and a pearly highlighter. The foundation shades are surprisingly versatile, I used the lightest shade on my porcelain skin and the darkest shade on my friend who is of Filipina descent. I also used the second lightest shade on my very warm-toned sister, and the third lightest on my mother's olive toned skin. It seemed to match perfectly and everybody was very pleased with their results.

The amount of product I put on my face to conceal the redness was drastically cut in half! That was definitely a plus. I was very happy with the system and have spent time trying to learn how to get the most out of it, and different techniques to create a variety of looks. My skin looked pretty much flawless while using this system. The foundation didn't "cake" or appear too thick. Be sure not to hold the stylus too close to your face, if part of your face feels too wet, then you're holding it too close. Holding it further away help the color to spread properly and to not pool on the skin

Cleaning the stylus is easy also. You simply add a few drops of water, while holding a finger of the spray, this flushes out the part of the stylus that holds that foundation/color. You can also use a little amount of rubbing alcohol along with the water to clean it a little better. Dry the stylus completely, and be sure not to get water into any parts that shouldn't get wet. Always keep the system dry Cleaning the stylus between uses will help your system last you a long time to come.  You'll also receive a DVD that you should watch before using the system, so you know exactly how to work the airbrush and how to care for it properly.

Here's how it works:
