Our Luminess Air Airbrush Makeup Review
First off, thanks for checking out our site! Our goal is to provide you with the best airbrush makeup kit info on the web and we’re just getting started.
However, this is a review site. If you are looking for the official website, then go here: www.luminessair.com
But if you’re here looking for a comprehensive review of the Luminess Air then read on!
Luminess Air: Do the Complaints Have a Point?
If you’ve been doing your homework before purchasing your airbrush kit (and if you’re reading this site you are!) you’ve probably already seen some negative reviews on the Luminess Air. We’ve seen them too, but in doing our research, our initial approach is to look at the product itself first. Does it do what it claims and are there people happy with those results? If so, then we can move on to other factors.
The majority of the negatives we uncovered out there had to do with customer service. While this is an important factor, you have to weigh the ability of a company to provide post-sale support differently from the product itself. If the item itself is faulty or defective or cheaply made, that’s one thing that will immediately come out in the review.
We weren’t finding this in the majority of the negative reviews we saw, and so for this we’re feel it at least deserves to be on the best airbrush makeup kit site. Make no mistake: the Luminess Air is not perfect. It takes some practice to get great results. But if you’re willing to follow the instructions, watch the DVD and REALLY learn how to use your kit then keep reading. Set some real expectations of yourself before you start.
Okay, back to our review
We’ll go ahead and explain what you get with the Luminess Air package and how it works. After that we’ll show you some of the collected reviews from people who have been using Luminess Air for awhile. The reviews are actually good overall-but you should know a few things about it before you buy.
What all comes with the Luminess Air System?
Depending on which system you get (there are five), the package arrives containing the airbrush stylus wand, holder and air compressor. It also includes four different shades of foundation, so you can test which one works best and match your skin tone before investing in any additional makeup.
As with just about all new make-up you need to tryout different shades to discover just what works to suit your needs. The shades delivered in the initial bundle should be a good starting place for your. What you are looking for is the best possible coverage that matches your skin tone.
There are five total systems to choose from:
- the Kelly Series
- the Beauty Series
- the Professional
- the Platinum, and finally
- the Luminess Tan.
The kind you see on TV in the infomercial is the Luminess Air Beauty Series. This is the $229.90 system that is advertised with the $29.95 trial offer. The Pro also has a trial offer but it’s $39.95 to start.
So what’s the difference? Okay, the entry-level model, the Kelly BC-50 is $169.95 and is not available for the 30-day trial offer. It has a larger unit (not as compact) and does not come with any cosmetics extras like the blush, bronzer or glow.
The Luminess Air Beauty Series BC-100 is the most popular one at $229.90 and we feel it is the best deal if you just want it for yourself and aren’t thinking about the tanning option. You can do it in 4 payments of $50 if you choose as well. It has the compact airbrush compressor and also includes $80 worth of the cosmetics extras.
The Luminess Pro System PC-200 is a $309.95 a multi-speed system with 3 speeds: L-light for hair and eyebrows, M-for face and neck and H-for body including legs and arms. If you will be doing any tanning then this is the system to get. It’s the minimum choice if you want tanning-but it doesn’t include the tanning products.
The Platinum Series is the top of the line for $369. It’s everything in the Pro System plus a travel battery and includes all your necessary tanning products.
- One of the easier systems to just get in and start using quickly. You turn it on, add a few drops to the stylus and apply. This might benefit those using it daily before work without any extra hassle.
- It gives you completely seamless coverage in under 5 minutes. We totally love this, and would undoubtedly recommend it to those who have skin issues they would like to conceal. The makeup feels surprisingly light on your face and you don’t ever feel like it’s caked on.
- Less expensive than the Dinair and Temptu Airbrush Kits
- The company never tests products on animals. Luminess Air strongly supports UNICEF and other children’s causes along with various breast cancer and women’s health organizations.
- There could still be lingering potential customer service issues.
- The makeup can be expensive at first until you learn how to properly use your system. We see this as the case for all new users, no matter the brand.
What Other Users are Saying About Luminess Air
If you were ever going buy an Luminess, now is a good time as they do have a special limited time offer…
Luminess is definitely in a fight right now with Dinair for market share, and they are looking to really spread their brand.
So important! If you order it through this link to the official site you can save $17.50 to cover the shipping and handling. You have to pay for the system as a one-time charge but you’re still covered by the 30-day trial and of course the money back guarantee.
Plus, they’ll put you in the Priority Shipping queue and you’ll be one of the first to ship.
If you opt for this, make sure to look for the “Upgrade My Order” checkbox.
With the money you save through that you could go for the upgraded shipping
which is $13.25 extra and get your Luminess in a week instead of two.
To wrap up, we can safely say with the special offer we feel comfortable recommending the Luminess Air. If you are new to makeup airbrushing, the trial makes it even more worth it.
