The SKII Airtouch foundation is a product that will require that you learn new “rules” of foundation application – but once you've gotten the hang of it like I did -- you might never want to use another foundation again. The foundation is actually battery powered (included) and will require that you read all the enclosed instructions very carefully so you learn how to begin the spray nozzle flow and the technique for spraying on the face. However, once I grasped it (does not take long!) I found the results were truly fantastic. I can now see that the luxury price tag of this product is not just for the makeup but for the delivery system, which delivers flawlessness. Yes, I said it! The sprayer is like no other if you think you've tried spray on makeup before. The spray was so fine I could not feel even it. And better yet, nothing got on my hair or sink as the product only adheres to the skin! The first time I used this, I ended up spraying the device several times because I thought it wasn’t working--nothing seemed to be coming out. But then I realized that my face was indeed a little damp so I stopped. My face looked just like I moisturized but with no pores, no uneven coloring, my light under eye circles completely erased! My face looked just like I always dreamed it could look. And the makeup was weightless! It was covered but felt like nothing was on my skin (this really is a miracle). I am in awe of this product. As recommended by SKII, I applied my eye shadow and blush FIRST, and then the foundation straight on to my moisturized skin and THEN added mascara and lipstick afterwards (A little topsy-turvy I know). I also applied concealer before the air touch. I sprayed the Airtouch (held 4 inches from my face) and it set fairly quickly. By the way, I found applying blush and eye shadow beforehand to make things quicker and there does was no problem with blush or eye makeup being masked too much, if at all. The final verdict? This is SO EASY....anyone can apply perfect makeup, with total ease. It was so nice not to need my hands or foundation brushes. This kept my skin free of all those bacteria and oils that can sometimes cause me to have a little break out. The coverage is also buildable so I really applied what I felt like I needed day to day. I am going to two months of everyday use and the tiny pouch still seems mostly full. This can very easily last about 8-9 months which makes the price seem very reasonable. The container itself is a little on the heavy side to carry round in a bag, but so convenient for re-applying if I was having a long day at work or out all day. On most days however, I found that I didn’t even need another touch up because it wore so well throughout the day. If you too have been chasing an amazing perfection and would like flawless glowy coverage with a weightless feel then this is the product for you.
The SKII foundation is plain and simply the most fabulous foundation I've ever tried. I'm now a woman of a certain age, that would be 53, but I still feel 27 on the inside...on most days that is! SKII foundation makes it look as though I just have beautiful skin. I love that it's not attracted to hair so you don't need to worry about it getting in your own hair or eyebrows. I think it gives you a smooth and poreless look. I'm hooked. This is definitely my HG foundation! I do still love my Laura Mercier Silk Blend but when you want to use the French champagne of foundations, you've found it! At least, this red headed Irish girl has!
This foundation is the best. I came upon this by accident, when I went to replace my liquid foundation. The results after seeing it and trying it, were fabulous. I use it over my moisturizer, but you probably get even better results over your reqular foundation, however, that procedure makes no sense to me. It is quick, easy, and not messy. Holy, moly it is expensive, but the refills are not. I would call it an investment. It is such a unique system, that it surely will peak your interest. The procedure is different than what you are use to. It gives your skin a flawless look without using a liquid that you have to blend or a powder foundation which is drying and heavy. I suggest giving it a try, but I can't imagine you not liking it. I'm hooked.
I just have a question. I bought an sk-ii but the directions are only in Japanese. How do you begin the air nozzle flow? I can't seem to get anything to come out.
