Mineral Air Reviews
Airbrush makeup has a certain appeal to consumers because it is said to give a more flawless look than standard makeup. This is achieved not only through the delivery system, but the fact that it essentially combines primer, concealer, makeup, and hydrating serum which are all applied at the same time.
Where Mineral Air shines is in its excellent coverage and precision, which is achieved with a smaller spray pattern than other at-home airbrushes. The final look is not cakey or that of heavy makeup, but rather of flawless natural skin. It only takes seconds to apply and can last all day. The unit is rechargeable and compact, allowing you to take it along with you for any required touch-ups.
Another advantage for those who use Mineral Air is that it is ideal for those with sensitive skin, which is not a feature of some airbrush competitors (see ingredients below).
Perhaps the biggest difficultly, not only with Mineral Air but with any makeup purchased online, is that of choosing the proper color. Doing this locally at a retailer is typically the best way to achieve a perfect match, although the minds behind Mineral Air have accounted for this and include two blending shades to adjust to be lighter or darker. It’s an excellent solution to the problem of at-home matching. Those with very light or very dark skin sometimes have difficulty finding a proper color match.
There are a number of airbrush makeup products on the market. Temptu is a popular choice, and Luminess Air has been seen advertising on television in recent years. Art of Air also has a set which is somewhat less expensive. It may pay to shop around.
Sea Salt, Algae Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Olive Squalanne, Pomegranate, Argan Oils, Ceramides 2, 3 and 6 II, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamins C and E. It’s Paraben Free, Talc Free, Phthalate Free, Mineral Oil Free, Gluten Free, BHT and BHA Free, Synthetic Dye Free, Synthetic Fragrance Free.
Mineral Air is an excellent entrant in the category of airbrushed makeup applicators. The makers have provided enough unique features to make this a product worth trying. It isn’t available locally, and the cost is something that may dissuade some consumers. If you’ve tried other at-home airbrush systems and still think you can do better, Mineral Air should be on your short list.
