Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs VoxBox Review

To be completely honest, I was not going to review this product, because I wasn't sure it would be a fair review. Here's why: I am pale. Pale as in WiteOut would be a good name for the shade of concealer I need to match my skin tone pale. Unfortunately, although the shade of leg makeup I received was "Light", I ended up looking like a preteen who had her first run-in with some self tanning lotion. (Because seriously - who hasn't done that at least once in their lifetime?!)

It doesn't look near as bad in the photo as it did up close and personal - trust me! But, wrong shade aside, it wasn't a bad product! It had a surprisingly pleasant scent; it reminded me of a pumpkin spice latte. (Which I thought was kind of funny, since it turned me orange hahaha!) It went on very smoothly with little streaking and was not difficult to apply at all. I like the fact that it is waterproof, which is particularly convenient in the summer! I'm not sure how well it would hold up in the pool, but I'm guessing not too bad, since I was only able to remove it with soap, warm water and a loofah. It really did even out my skin tone (as you can tell in the before and after photo), but it definitely didn't conceal freckles, blemishes or scars, as the product advertises.

It does come in one shade lighter than what I received, but in the end, this product isn't for me. One, because I'm a mom. I'm lucky enough to find time to apply regular makeup and that's a LOT of skin to cover! Two, it says it's transfer resistant, but I'd still be too paranoid it would rub off on my clothing. That's enough of a problem with face makeup! But it was definitely a fun product to try out!! Perhaps next summer I'll purchase the lightest shade and see if it works any better. For now, bring on the yoga pants!

Before: Snow White
After: Donald Trump ;D
Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and reviewing purposes.
