Allure Magazine voted this new airbrush Best Foundation a truly innovative product of 2006 in its annual Best of Beauty Issue. Here’s what is being said about it: SKII’s Air Touch Foundation uses the wonder of precision to retexture the look of the skin surface, making it appear smooth, translucent and radiant - much like a baby’s skin. At a touch of a button, the amazing ionisation technology delivers foundation one particle at a time for a most precise and natural coverage. When the ioniser is switched on the positively charged micro foundation particles are instantly attracted to the negatively charged micro particles on the face, covering the skin in a single, even and precise layer – no mess, caking or streaking. In addition, Air Touch Foundation is formulated with SK-II’s seemingly miraculous ingredient, Pitera, and moisturizing agents to provide skin caring benefits and hydrate skin." This is an airbrushing gadget that requires foundation refills. The gadget and refills are not exactly inexpensive. That being said, this product provides a light coverage, so if you need medium to heavy coverage, this may not be a worthy investment. But if money is not an object and your skin does not require more than light coverage, it may be hard to keep yourself away from a mirror after applying it, as your skin will amaze you!
Triple C-Weed Whipped Foundation
This Best Foundation contains valuable minerals and nutrients from three types of organic seaweed and includes vitamin C antioxidants which combat signs of premature aging. A lightweight whipped texture provides medium coverage. It is recommended for those with dry skin.
