AeroMinerale spray-on makeup

I first learned of AeroMinerale spray-on makeup through a press release about a tie-in with the Breaking Dawn movie. Over 1000 cans were used on the set! It appeared on Bella’s dressing table!

But what amused (or disgusted) me is that the pink aerosol can was described as “soon-to-be-Iconic.” G-d knows that I think that “iconic” is one of the abused words in fashion and beauty. It sets my teeth on edge. “Soon-to-be-iconic”??

Anyway, back to the product. You may apply AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation by spraying it directly on your face. However, I wouldn’t recommend it. It leaves too much deposit. I had to blot with a tissue but even then, the coverage was too thick. Moreover, it stains clothing and gunks up the hair. I prefer spraying AeroMinerale on a dampened wedge makeup sponge and applying it with the sponge, as shown in this video featuring AeroMinerale founder Yolanda Halston:

AeroMinerale also has a spray-on Hydrating Mineral Primer. The primer also leaves too much deposit, so I blot with a tissue after applying it. Even so, it’s fun to use.

AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation comes in ten shades, from Ivory to Ebony. Want to know your best shade? Use the AeroMinerale web site’s extensive database of foundation shades for a match.

AeroMinerale is worth a try. A 1.5-oz can sells for $20 at aerominerale.com, but you can buy it for less. I bought mine for $16-17 dollars at CVS. To find even lower prices, use Google Shopping. I found $12 (clearance) at drugstore.com.

I've been using this for years. I finished my last can and need to pick it up again. Since I've had a lot of experience with it I can spray it without a problem but it's so much easier to just use my Beauty Blender sponge. The key to any use with this product is to shake it extremely well before use. The water needs to mix with the pigment.

Hi Marcia,

Thanks for stopping by to comment!

I don't think that I have the patience to practice the shake-aim-spray technique to make better. I'll stick with the sponge technique presented in the video.

Using a spray does sound tricky and most probably out of my comfort zone. I'm use to using a sponge so I think I'll just stick to that.

I haven't tried using this, but because of your great review, I am really curious about this product. I might give it a try and I hope that it will have the same effect just like what it did on you. Btw, thanks for sharing!

Is the effect just for refreshing? Water sprinkle from that sprayer could give you small particle of water and help you to gain more stimulate on your skin and cleaning the dirt from your self.

It seems that minerals are taking over the beauty scene. I do like the idea of a spray even though I usually use a sponge. Definitely something to think about. Thanks for posting!
