Ok, let me just start this review by stating that i am not being paid to say this. I have used 4 different Air brush systems. 3 trials and one i bought and returned. When i heard about Dinair having this great glorious sale, i was excited. With no more than a second i was searching reviews.
Dinaire, Luminess, and Temptu claims to be Talc, Silicone and Paraben free. However I have spent time trying to reach them all. I was not putting anything on my face unless i could see a VERIFIED ingredient list. By law every company has to supply you with one if you ask and it is not on their site. The FDA demands it. Well after 5 weeks of hounding i finally got one from each company. I was not pleased with any of them, not even slightly.
No, their ingredient list doesnt say Parabens ANYWHERE on it. However it did contain esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. If you dont know what that is, its PARABENS. Which, for the unknowing, those cause cancer. Both in men and women.
What are parabens you may ask? Well lets just break it down. They are in a lack of better terms, cremated animals used as preservatives. Yep. Now you are probably thinking, oh, well how many makeup products do i use that contain parabens? Well 90% of them. Select Companies are actually paraben free, like Burts Bee’s. One of my favorites.
Here is a list:
So sure, Dinaire and Luminess and even Temptu CLAIM to be Paraben free, They arent. They confused us with names like esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid, Benzoic acid, 4-hydroxy-, phenylmethyl ester, isobutyl ester, aseptoform butyl and yeah i could keep going. There are SO many names. Take a look at your makeup tonight. You’ll be surprised what you are putting on your face once you start looking up the ingredients.
Not to mention on ALL makeup there is a little open jar icon with a number and an M on it. That is how long your makeup is good for. You’ll be surprised to know that, yes, makeup expires. Quickly if i might add.
Yeah, before you think about it, i would look into exactly what you are putting on your face and how old your makeup really is.
