Mineral Air from YA-MAN USA boasts it’s the world’s first cordless airbrush mineral makeup system. They insist with one touch of your finger you can gently spray concealer on your face and lightly cover unwanted blemishes without any caking in as little as 10 seconds with a sheer finish you can’t get with powders or liquids.
How exactly does Mineral Air work to put makeup on my face?
Mineral Air is said to be a cordless airbrush system that can be used on your face in seconds. Unlike the airbrushes devices used in salons and makeup studios, they promise you can easily use Mineral Air on yourself because it doesn’t have a separate compressor or open reservoir that can spill.
Instead, they tout Mineral Air comes with a rechargeable compressor and is in the shape of a traditional cosmetic-size spray can. Its 4-in-1 Foundation is said to contain silky micronized mineral spheres that won’t clog pores, yet provide complete coverage, replacing the need to buy separate primer, concealer, mineral makeup and hydrating serum; they add mineral makeup is great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
To use Mineral Air, they tell you to choose from 6 shades the one that most closely matches your skin; this will be your base shade, which you put inside the dispenser reservoir. Give a test spray on your skin and adjust the color with one drop of lighter or darker shade as necessary (more information and video can be found here).
Then, they tell you to simply push the spray button and start applying Mineral Air. They state a fine mist will lightly cover your face with the now perfectly blended 4-in-1 Foundation in just 10 seconds, hiding blemishes and creating a beautiful, even tone. To demonstrate, they show a small tattoo on a woman’s wrist disappearing after a spray of Mineral Air makeup spray.
Mineral Air’s dispenser is said to be rechargeable via USB cable, which is included in your purchase. They claim the reservoir can hold up to 20 drops of 4-in-1 Foundation at a time, enough for 1-5 uses, depending on how much coverage you need. They tout the base is fully charged in 2 hours, which will give 30 minutes of spray, or 360 applications.
Mineral Air is said to include 100% pure mineral pigments along with plant extracts and oils such as argan oil, pomegranate, Laminaria Japonica Extract (a seaweed), as well as vitamins C and E. They promise it has no parabens, talc, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, BHT, BHA, or synthetic dyes or fragrances.

Bottom Line: Is Mineral Air a great way to get a beautiful airbrushed look?
Possibly yes, BUT...
So-called “airbrushing” is one of the hottest crazes in makeup because it can be lightly, evenly applied and make skin look flawless. YA-MAN USA claims Mineral Air is the #1 mineral makeup in Japan, where the company originates with over 20 million products sold. They state Mineral Air is available for the first time in the USA.
We’d just like to remind you that it’s not cheap, and to avoid any additional payments you must contact them and get an RMA before the 30 days are up. We tried calling YA-MAN and was put on hold for almost half-an-hour before being hung up on, which is not a good sign. YA-MAN Mineral Air customer service email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Airbrushing and mineral makeup both have their pros and cons. According to one expert, makeup applied with an airbrush streaks when it gets wet, so it’s not usually recommended for brides on their wedding day. The minerals used in mineral makeup can often reflect light so it’s not recommended for photo shoots.
Is Mineral Air the best of both worlds, meaning, will it last up to 10 hours as they promise without the need for touch-ups and make sure you’re ready for the photo shoot? Or, will it be the WORST, meaning it streaks when you cry and the sparkle ruins the wedding photos?
You’ll have 30 days to find out and it will cost you at least $14.95. Let us know your experience with Mineral Air below!
