I tried this foundation on at the Armani counter in Neiman Marcus, and immediately knew it was a winner for women my age.
The PERKS of Armani Designer Lift:
-Goes on smoothly
-Feels good on the face
It is not as light as my Dior Airflash foundation, but it mixes so well with my beloved Armani fluid sheers. I take a few drops of my pink Fluid Sheer and apply it right over my foundation with the same brush, on my cheeks or in other places I think could use some light. Adding a hint of color to your foundation is great for aging.
You can’t screw this up, since the coverage is buildable. I highly recommend it!
I had been hearing rumblings …. Then while on a trip this summer, I met a lovely woman, Sue from Dallas whose soft look belied her 60 years. She had just gotten off the phone with her beautiful 26 year old daughter who had run out of Airflash and was desperately seeking her mother’s help to get some more! I was sold.
So…I headed to the Dior counter at my neighborhood Nordstrom’s and asked if I could give Airflash a try. By the way, never be shy about sidling up to the make-up counter. The staffs there are more than happy to help and show off all their good product. Generally, I find this to be a low pressure sales situation and a great way to test out what is new and might be helpful and fun to start using.
Irene at the Nordstrom’s counter in Austin suggested applying Airflash lightly using a kabuki brush, and showed me how best to do this.
First spray on the side of your hand.
Then dab the kabuki brush and begin spreading evenly over your face.
For a bit of a heavier application, you can spray Airflash directly onto your face… in a “Z” motion. Then spread with your hands or a brush if you prefer.
Airflash gives a really smooth look. I find that it brightens my skin. And it passes my critical ‘not heavy looking’ test. NOTE! Be sure to use a face cream with a good SPF before applying Airflash since it doesn’t have its own SPF. For me, it’s been a small price to pay for the look it gives!
