Would you believe there people who walk through beauty halls in department stores trying to AVOID the girls standing around offering to show you their products?
I’m certainly not one of them.
I’ll try anything once and I’m so, SO glad I did recently.
On a trip through Debenhams I met the lovely Andrea at the Dior counter who offered to show me their new Airfix range.
Somwhere along the way I’ve forgotten the old adage that you should invest in a good foundation so the ones I’ve been using recently have been below par.
After a good cleanse and moisturise with Dior’s Instant Cleansing Water and moisturise with Dior’s Capture Total 24 Hour, I looked like this –
(Yes I’m wearing eye make-up, it’s just what I had on as this is all about the foundation.)
Then Andrea started showing me how the Airfix works. The products literally spray on – it’s like having a spray tan only just your make up. We started with the CC Primer
Then Andrea applied my foundation. This is the quickest foundation I’ve ever heard tell of. I would say it took less that five seconds for a light spray, then another seven seconds for blending with a brush. I can’t believe the results.
And then the Matte Touch finish over the top – it’s like spray on pressed powder. I was then finished off with some Rosy Glow for my cheeks and some lip gloss, and hey presto, the finished product.
I can’t believe this stuff. Honestly there’s quite a lot of layers on my face here but it feels like there’s nothing there at all – it doesn’t even come off on my fingers when I touch my face.
I have oily skin and so can have a problem with foundation simply melting away. However, four hours and six vox pops running around the streets of Belfast later, it was still there.
Colour me impressed.
I’ve never used any Dior products before so I was even more impressed with the pricetage. Airfix foundation is £32 a pop which I don’t think is an unreasonable price for the good stuff, particularly as each spray uses next to nothing. I’m no stranger to beauty bargains but I would consider this product an investment.
Now THIS is why you should always stop in a beauty hall when you hear, ‘would you like to try…?’
