Luminess Air System Comparisons & Review! Part 1 of 2

What i have been pondering for years now is what Airbrush system should i invest in..... I mean honestly its alot of money just to use for myself so when i expanded my business in the last year i truly have had a rocky start finding one! My experience started when i purchased a TEMPTU for Sephora airbrush system for personal use and after 6 months of perfect application it just stopped working and i couldn't get it replaced or fixed without paying for almost a new one. It was a huge let down for me especially since it was a big purchase. I took the plunge almost 4 months ago now and purchased a Luminess Air System on QVC because who doesnt like payment options right!? I now own two and both are by far the best investment anyone professionally would want to carry with them!

Whats actually the difference you ask??

You mean besides the price? Well for starters the Paparazzi Pink edition is a 1 speed system where the Pro system is a 3 speed system; These 3 speeds consist of slow, medium & fast so you can get an accurate and perfect application where you need it. I found that i tend to use the 1 speed machine more often not just because its Pink (which is a factor) But its also just quicker to just press the button one time instead of 4 times to turn the machine off.  For anyone who wants a professional system the pro system is a must it also comes with the silver clutch which makes my life so much easier especially when i am packing up my makeup kit. I also recommend having more than 1 system and airbrush gun attachments because you never know what actually might happen. BUT if your just looking for yourself i would invest into the standard 1 speed system it really does photo differently as well as improve your skin conditions! Luminess Air is a well known & Respected Company amongst the beauty community. I am proud to tell my clients i use Luminess Air, it is truly a spa like experience for my business!

These systems come in White, Pink & now Black!!

Disclaimer: This review expresses my honest experiences with the Luminess Air Airbrush Systems. I myself purchased the paparazzi Pink edition system, while Luminess Air was generous enough to send me a Pro system for review to compare. I am not Affiliated with these companies, although i do use them in my business.

I will be on the lookout for part 2 of this post. I tried airbrush makeup for my wedding but I didn't like the coverage so I ended up using liquid foundation. I wonder if this brand has better coverage...The pink is so cute !
