Luminessair Every Day Beauty System

Package that I received


So like many freelance make up artists I slowly and surely work on keeping my Make up Kit updated with newest products while keeping in mind the fashion/beauty trends. One particular trend that I have researched on various make up related threads (Youtube, Make Up Alley, Forums on Model Mayhem, etc) is the ever growing interest of the everyday person into Air Brush Make Up. 

Considering I am by no means a professional, I believe it would be of interest to myself to find out from personal experience the pros and cons to having/using  Air Brush Makeup. 

After spending a few hours watching/reading reviews on various systems, I felt one in particular stood on int mind....Luminessair

Checking out their website, one can easily be directed to the right section of Air Brush Make up. After poking around, seeing what was offered. I decided to email the PR section and inquiry in regards to Review the system (yes, I did ask....figure why the heck not...worse thing they can do was say no). 

I contacted Luminessair on 7/14 and received a response from Emily (Relations Advocate) on 7/15, letting me know I was eligible to review the product. Keep in mind that as part of my requirement for being able to review this product is I must do a review of the system within 2 week after receiving the system (so for anyone else who is thinking about reviewing this product....don't forget to follow the rules. As it is the right thing to do, plus it keeps good relations with beauty companies.)

I did sadly find out on 7/19 that Luminessair would be unable to send me the package, due to the fact they can not ship to APOs/FPOs (these are military PO Box for when stationed internationally). However, I was not going to let that stand in my way...I asked Emily if it were possible for it to the item to be sent to a stateside address (ie my parents) to which they would and could ship it to me. Luckily Emily said that was a great idea, and informed me that the Air Brush Kit would be shipped shortly to the address I had given her.

I was informed by my mother that she received the Luminessair package rather quick (after I informed her of what was going on), she said it arrived somewhere between 7/23 (Saturday) or 7/25 (Monday). Anyways long story short I found my Luminessair package in my mail box here in germany on 8/10, and I tell you what I was so excited!!!

Cute Card that Emily included in my package

I want to point out that Emily, does a great job at being the Relations Advocate for Luminessair. Not only is she through with answering all questions, but she get backs to any emails right away. She is a definite asset to the company (and I do hope they recognize and appreciate all that she does.) She made my package that much more personal by including a handwritten note in my card.

Customer service: Grade A

Upon Opening the Box

Also keep in mind LuminessAir key icon is the butterfly.
I do like the fact they continue to repeat this throughout their entire packaging.

Actual Air Brush System and Gun

This actual Kit is new to the company (quoting from email ) "Hot Pink Luminess 2 system, features our brand NEW TechiQue stylus that gives you greater control and the hand of a make up aritst". This system is similar to the Everyday Beauty System (pictured in black on the website) .

Additional Items that were in overall package

This system (similar to the Everyday Beauty System) comes with the following:
2 .55oz foundations
Mine were in Shade 2 and 3 Golden Beige

 Blush, Bronzer, Glow and Primer/Moisturizer
Blush in 3n, Bronzer in P3, Glow in G1, Moisturizer and Primer in M1

All these items are available in the Everyday Beauty System, and will cost (before shipping and handling) $169.00

Not only did I receive these products but I also got

Eyeshadow Duo in Shade 4 and 28

Looking at the website the actual duo is called Ore, a great pair for a simple neutral eye. This duo retails for $32.00 (before shipping and handling). There is also a listed price for those who are part of the Make up Club for Luminessair. 

Overall Thoughts so far:

I am thoroughly intrigued and excited to try out this system. I plan over the next day or so to watch the dvd and post about my overall thoughts of how well the videos explain how to use the system. As I stated in my haul video, one thing about informative DVD's is that you end up having to watch a video anywhere from 3 to 5 times to make sure you understand and really get how to do something. 

I should also be doing a video of me demonstrating how I use the product before giving a final review. No lies, I'm a bit leery about trying out the eyeshadows...but I know it will be better for me. As both a beauty consumer as well as a freelance make up artist to try out different products. 

Keep an eye out for more to come!!!
