Napoleon Perdis Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation Review

Over the summer, I had the opportunity to try @NapoleonPerdis’ Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation. I had received a gift card for the Napoleon Perdis store from IMATS and decided to redeem it with the purchase of this product. The Boudoir Foundation Mist is like getting airbrushed but from a can instead of an airbrush machine. I actually really enjoyed using this product. I’d say its a light-heavy coverage because it’s so buildable. You spray it in circular motions until you get the coverage you want. You can spray a little more on areas you want to cover more.

I abso-freaking-lutely love this product. I’m SO glad I got the opportunity to try this product… especially in the summer. When I was trying it in store, the awesome girl that helped me told me it works especially well in the summer because it’s pretty much sweatproof and that she had worn it to the beach without it coming off. I tried it when I went to a beach event and she was right. Once the mist dries on your face it pretty much stays put. I didn’t have to reapply at all throughout the day. I will say that since I’m an oily person I did apply a light layer of powder on top. She also said it works as a makeup sealer as in you can spray it over your makeup to lock it in place. I tried it once or twice and I thought of it as just a reinforcement to make sure my makeup didn’t evaporate and it definitely didn’t . These added uses aren’t listed on the product description but definitely won me over.

The downfall of this product…. It’s a whopping $49 a can. BUT compared to Dior Air Flash which is $62 a can it’s definitely cheaper. When I bought the product the girl that helped me told me that my first can would run out very quickly because it takes a few tries to get used to it and to know exactly how much to use. I still have a little bit in my can but I will say I ran out way faster than I thought I would. I don’t use it on a regular basis, only for outdoor occasions or for when I know I’m going to be in a hot environment like a club or a very populated event.

So overall, GREAT product. Steep price for my pockets but I think I would buy it again to use for those special events and occasions because it’s THAT good. For those that don’t want to invest in an actual airbrush machine but want the same results, I totally recommend giving this product a try. Actually, the price of a can compared to buying a Temptu airpod isn’t that big of a difference. For those that have been wanting to try an airbrush foundation, I would suggest this one over Dior Air Flash since this one isn’t as expensive.

As always, let me know if you’ve tried this product and your experiences 🙂

You can purchase this product along with the rest of Napoleon’s products on his website or at his stores.

xo, June 🙂
