Gone are the days when ladies would need so much time to put on a cakey foundation that looks cracked on the skin. These days, makeup lovers have many options to choose from when it comes to priming and applying foundation. They also have the choice to go for skin-friendly makeup, particularly, those that have mineral ingredients that provide excellent coverage and also help repair the signs of aging.

If you are looking for a foundation that replicates the airbrush makeup application technique and has minerals for ingredients, then you may want to consider the MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander.

The Many Virtues of the MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander

The MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander is a three-piece makeup set consisting of a liquid silk air primer, a mineral foundation spray, and a kabuki brush. This set promises to give a Hollywood-like look for all its users.

This makeup set aims to deliver the same technique employed by top-notch artists of Hollywood sets, fashion runways and magazine pictorials with its smooth and silky airbrushed precision that results in a flawless finish. This three-piece set is made up of three skincare ingredients that are gentle and can help repair the skin–Hyaluronic Acid, Argireline and Matrixyl 3000.

The Hyaluronic Acid is also often referred to as “foundation of youth” as it both locks and adds a hydrating lubricant that helps in the prevention of aging. On the other hand, Argireline is a protein consisting of three essential amino acids that help decrease the appearances of wrinkles and fine lines. The Matrixyl 300 relaxes the wrinkles, repairs elasticity of the skin and boosts the production of collagen.

The mineral spray foundation is ultra light but capable of providing full coverage. The set’s primer spray aids in the preparation of the skin by smoothing, hydrating and plumping the skin’s texture before the application of the foundation. Both the primer and the foundation spray are light enough to be used daily, and they are buildable so that a user can easily conceal hard to cover parts and imperfections. The product maker promises zero caking or the heavy buildup of makeup that can leave skin looking cracked and dry.

The makeup set is easy to use as it only takes less than five minutes to apply. One should start preparing the skin with the misting primer spray–simply shake and spray it into the Kabuki blush and apply it to a freshly washed face. Additionally, if one wishes to use the foundation, then one only needs to shake the foundation spray then buff into the cheeks, face, and neck for blending.

This Jerome Alexander set claims to be perfect and suitable for all skin types. Aside from being lightweight, it is also breathable. Plus, the makeup is both sweat- and water-resistant. This three-piece makeup set is available in four different shades, namely dark, medium, medium-dark, and light.

Summary

This three-piece set is a mineral makeup containing three ingredients, namely Hyaluronic Acid, Argireline and Matrixyl 3000. These ingredients have many benefits to the skin such as boosting collagen production, repairing of fine lines, and preventing of aging, to name a few.

The set consists of a spray foundation, primer, and a kabuki brush. It is easy to apply as one will only need roughly five minutes to prime and use the foundation. The foundation promises to be ultralight and breathable, and yet provide full coverage without the cakey look or feel. The set is available in four different shades namely dark, medium, medium-dark, and light.

This three-piece makeup set, however, has its drawbacks as it seems to have too much orange pigment. Plus, its kabuki brush loses strands easily that can leave users with hairbrush pieces on their faces.

Comparison

The MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander is not unique since there are many products on the market that use minerals for its ingredients as well as boasts of an airbrush finish.

For example, the Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation Cream boasts of an ultrafine mist that blurs imperfections and controls shine for up to 10 hours. It has a satin finish that is ultralight. This airbrush foundation boasts of the InstaBlend Technology with its micro-fine and weightless pigments that provide a seamless and smooth finish. It has red algae extract that is mineral-rich and can provide a smooth skin and is at the same time environment-friendly.

There is also the Sally Hansen Airbrush Face Makeup that provides an ultra-fine mist to produce a flawless and light finish. It is shine-free and is suitable for all skin types as well.

Verdict

The MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander has many great features such as the three active ingredients–Hyaluronic Acid, Argireline and Matrixyl 3000 that help correct skin problems related to aging. It is also a three-piece set that has the foundation, primer, and kabuki brush. This product promises to replicate the airbrush technique of applying foundation without the hassle of actually using an airbrush machine. One can even apply the foundation and primer within five minutes.

Other products on the market promise an airbrush finish for the foundation such as the Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation Cream and Sally Hansen Airbrush Face Makeup although neither of the two products comes with a primer and a brush.

Is the MagicMinerals AirBrush Foundation by Jerome Alexander a good buy? It could be a great product, but some buyers could end up having an orange-looking skin and needing to buy a different kabuki brush. Unfortunately, this product does not seem to work with all skin types as some tend to have orange-looking foundation on their faces after several hours of use as well as have hair all over the face as the kabuki brush tends to shed off easily.
