Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush ($20) a new waterproof airbrush blush mist available in four shades that launched with the Sephora Spring 2016 Collection. This comes in a 1.3 oz aerosol much like Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation.

It’s a novel idea but it proves a pain to apply and it’s quite expensive as well.

Let’s take a look!

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush is a novel idea and might be a great pick up for those who enjoy Spray Foundations. Personally, I thought it was super fun and it had some a few great benefits but for the most part I thought it was expensive and a little difficult to apply.

This comes in a fine mist aerosol can that’s 1.3 oz in size. After using it and realizing how much I had to use I realized I spend $20 on a very little amount of blush. I mean, for example, if you purchased a NARS Blush it’ll set you back $30 but you’re getting 0.16 oz. So for $10 more you get 15 x times more blush from NARS and let’s face it that blush is going to last you well over a year. You’d be lucky to get a month maybe two out of Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush.

But let’s digress a second and find out why it won’t last.

This isn’t something you’re going to want to spray directly onto your face for obvious reasons. Just in case those reasons aren’t as obvious as I think let’s go over ’em. First off spraying from the can gets it everywhere and possibly in your eyes which you don’t want to do. Secondly, you have no control when you’re misting it directly from the can onto your face. And third, it can potentially get on your clothes!

Now you can spray it on your fingers and tap it onto your face but this isn’t really a great option. You can also spray it on the back of your hand and gently tap a brush into it and apply this way but I feel it applies to sheer using this method. As you can see from my swatch below it sprays out kinda of sheer so you really need to spray a whole lot to arm to pick up color. And finally, the best option, apply it directly to your brush. However, just like the arm method I find application on my brush means that the bristles swallow up the color quickly so I feel the need to mist quite a bit on to get the color built up. So you see what I mean about going through it quickly huh?

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush 1

I purchased the Such a Peach shade and it is positively delightful. This is a golden peach that gives cheeks a radiant glow. The shade quite reminds me of Sephora Double Contouring Blush in Coral Flush. Not only is it gorgeous but it wears quite long at around eight hours and beyond without fading. It also has a very smooth, even airbrushed finish that doesn’t adhere to drier areas. Although I will say it might accentuate pores due to the baby fine shimmer in the shade but I don’t have visible pores so I’m just assuming this.

As nice as it is I think Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Blush is expensive for what you do get. If you want to try this “technology” you can maybe indulge in the new Bairly Sheer Spray-On Blush which is $9.99 at Ulta.com.

I think it’s a nice product with excellent wear and the color was delightful. But the application is a bit messy and I’m using a lot more product than I really need plus add in the price and smaller size and well, it might not be worth a pick up sadly.

But hey, if you do want to try it grab it at Sephora.com.

Anyone give this blush a whirl yet?

      It’s actually lipstick. Marvelous Moxie in Chase Your Dreams 🙂

    I love this in the foundation, but I’m to worried to try it I the blush because I think this will mess up my foundation. With the messy application I will sadly pass. 🙁 But you sure do make it look beautiful Muse!

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks blee! I don’t think you’ll mess up your foundation with it! It isn’t dewy or wet!

  • Ashlee

    I’m a little confused on your weight/math. The Sephora blush is 8 times the size of Nars blush, and comparing to liquid or gel blushes, it’s also a good price. Regarding price, the only thing working against it is that I’ve read that people go through spray foundations faster than normal foundations. Still, at 1.3 oz as opposed to the usual have half and ounce of gel or liquid it’s likely a wash.

    • Isabella Muse

      yup, I’m smoking again lol! Sorry! I was thinking 0.03 this entire TIME! head desk! Tired so tired 🙂 Sorry Ashlee! Consider this my edit!

    This seems like a great idea, but as you point out, you can’t actually just spray it on your face or you’d make a huge mess. So it’s not really different in usage from ‘normally’ packaged blush. What a shame.

    It’s a very pretty color, though.

  • Katherine T.

    Uh, I’m not understanding the concept of a spray blush, because I can see myself spraying my whole face pink by accident. It’s a pretty color though

  • Deb

    Just reading the instructions for use, wore me out……I have to take a nap now.
    It looks very nice on you but it is just way too much work.

  • Ashley

    I had SERIOUS issues during my first two applications as well, but there are 2 videos online that show 2 different methods of applying the spray blush. Also, it works well spraying it onto a synthetic blush brush and applying to the face that way. I was ready to give up on it initially, but after some research and attempting the video methods, I really love the blush! I purchased Such A Peach also. 🙂

      I think fibre brushes are def the way to go with these! I had the same thing happen to me, I felt the need to toss it, as it was a bit too much work!
