I had honestly never considered purchasing foundation in a spray can before a bottle of Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation* showed up in my mailbox, but once it did I couldn’t wait to try it out! It turns out that spraying foundation onto your face can be a bit messy, although not as bad as I thought, but this also works great if you spray it onto your hand and apply with a brush (I love the Real Techniques Buffing Brush for it).
There are nine shades of the Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation, and it looks like the one I tried, Fawn, is right in the middle at number five, and as you can tell it is too dark for me and I have to apply it all the way down my neck, but once I do it’s not bad as it blends in very nicely. I actually find that I have a lot of flexibility in the amount of coverage I get from the Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation, it is easy to build up and doesn’t look cakey at all, so you can tell in the comparison below it did a great job covering up most of my redness while still giving quite a natural finish, shade match aside.
I applied the Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation using a combination of direct-to-the-face and a brush, so as you can tell there’s a touch of the product in my hair (definitely tie it back if you’re going to use the can to apply) and I used a coat of Benefit Gimme Brow on my brows. If you apply using the can you’ll still have to blend in some areas with your fingers, like around the nose and eyes. This product has a very unique consistency as a result of the aerosol format, it’s lightweight and airy, and just blends into my skin so smoothly. I was really surprised with how much I loved it!
In terms of lasting power, I didn’t have any issues at all and my skin still looked great at the end of the day. I also found it much quicker to apply than an average foundation, probably because of how nice it looks and how little effort it takes.
Although I haven’t tried it, but I have heard that Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation is a great dupe for the Dior Airflash, and although it’s not cheap, this is about half the price of the Dior so it is definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in the format. I know I’m lusting over the “Light” shade now…
Have you ever tried an aerosol foundation? What do you think of the format?
