Does anyone use Dior’s Airflash spray foundation? I read some great reviews on it but it seems like more recent reviews (on Sephora, Amazon, Nordstrom) are saying the formula has changed.
Sephora makes a spray found now as well…anyone use that?
Would love to hear from anyone that uses it!

I have the Dior Airflash – I only use it when I have something that really needs covering up (generally I just use moisturizer mixed with CC cream, concealor stick and a very light mineral powder). You have to get used to spraying something aerosol at your face which can be a tad weird but it REALLY works to give you that airbrushed look without looking to cake-y. I would recommend.

I used the Sephora version as it is much cheaper lol. I liked it and have repurchased it a couple of times but it has pros and cons.
Pro: very good coverage, price, does not smear easily, pretty easy to use, not as germy as other make ups, didn’t break me out, good for oily skin!
Con: it CAN look cakey, but you just have to learn how much to use-that can be difficult in the beginning (I used wayyyy to much at first), i used the bottle up within a couple of weeks (which might be my fault because I used too much-but even with the second bottle I felt that I used the product up much faster than a regular make up).

thank you both!! I’m in the mood to switch up my foundation and read great things about both of these.
A Sephora employee told me its easier to spray onto a sponge then apply to face. I guess its a practice makes perfect type thing? I have the Sephora spray blush and the first time I used it, I sprayed onto my face but totally misjudged where it would land and ended up with pink eyelids LOL

I have been using Dior Airflash since it first came out. I haven’t noticed any kind of formula change. I can’t use anything else. It’s so light and natural looking but gives incredible coverage. I live by it.
The trick is to spray on to a kabuki brush first and then apply. Don’t spray it directly on your face otherwise you’ll have flesh colored eyebrows/lashes.
I tried the Sephora brand and hated it. It was very clumpy.

I have the Sephora Airbrush Foundation, I don’t use it every day because it takes a while to apply and is heavier than I like for every day use, but I wear it for special occasions. It gives me a quite flawless even complection. Most reviewers say to spray it on a sponge or on your hand and then apply with a brush or sponge, but I’ve tried it a few ways and I prefer to spray it on my face and then blend with a foundation brush.

I’ve been using Dior Airflash everyday for about three years and I love it, I haven’t noticed a change in the formula, I think the packaging has changed though. I set it with Dior powder and I really love the way it looks. I’ve used the Sephora Airbrush before when they had been out of my color of the Dior and I really didn’t like it, I wear the lightest color in almost every foundation and the lightest one still looked quite orange on me, and was sticky and streaky. Though foundations work differently on different skin types, mine is pretty normal sometimes can be a bit oily.

I’ve never tried the dior one but I have the Sephora one and I surprisingly really like it. It’s not my favorite foundation but it’s a lot faster to put on for me, so I’ll use it when I’m in a rush. Dunno why it takes longer for pp but it takes me like 15 seconds to put on, I just spray it and do a little blending with my beauty blender
If you spray it directly on your face (which is what I do), just have a spoolie ready to run through your eyebrows so they aren’t layered with foundation
