I'm no stranger to Coty Airspun Powder. In fact, when I was starting with Beauty blogging, I've learned about this wonder product through international beauty bloggers; a lot swear by for its smoothing coverage; that was like 5 years ago.
Today, Vloggers have been raving about this product, dubbing it as the choice powder for their Baking needs. I had the chance to acquire a tub for myself to see what the hype is all about (finally! After years of lemming!) during a brief trip to Pop Culture at Trinoma with some beauty blogger friends.
I've been using it for nearly two months now and I can say for myself that the hype is real - it's no accident that this baby is a best- seller since 1935!
COTY AIRSPUN POWDER IN DETAIL
This legendary loose face powder is a huge favorite in the USA. According to Coty, formula of the product is unchanged since the 30's, except for the packaging. According to Coty, the powder is milled until it reaches a super soft texture, thus allowing it to deliver a more even finish, conceal lines, and give skin a soft look.
The product comes with a unique puff, something that reminds me of clouds and cotton candy. I find that this puff works particularly well with the powder as the webbed surface picks up product easily and distributes it exactly where I want it. It tends to pick up a lot in one go though so if you want gradual application, opt for smooth powder puffs.
The powder has a super soft, smooth, and delicate texture; it's primarily Talc and this type of powder really has the softest texture so that's why. Talc has been shrouded in bad rep over the years because some studies link it to cancer; that, I can't vouch for, but all I can say is ever since I was a kid, my mom has been dousing me with baby powder to keep me fresh and I'm still alive and kicking today so those studies don't scare me at all. :)
Coty Airspun comes in about 3 or four powder shades. For Translucent, there are two types: Translucent regular and Translucent extra coverage. A lot of beauty gurus love the latter because it adds a bit of coverage to improve the look and coverage of liquid bases.
Here's a swatch of Translucent extra coverage. It's semi- translucent because it adds a teeny hint of white cast on the skin, but good thing it can be remedied with a bronzer. It has a vintage perfume smell, something that most users dislike, but as for me, I like it. :)

Face with foundation
Baking with Airspun
After about 4 minutes, I dust off the excess powder and I'm left with this coverage. I love how this powder smooths my skin big time and gives it a soft matte look, if the right amount is applied.
Piece of advice, don't apply too much because it has a tendency to give you a flat matte look.
Another nice thing about this powder is it feels soft on the skin indeed; it doesn't yield that dry, chalky texture that most translucent powders give. Regarding staying power, it did not exactly say that it can control oil, but I find that it can keep oil at bay for about 3 or 4 hours on my T-Zone and lasts for more than 8 hours on the normal parts of my face. This powder can keep the look of my base vibrant and fresh- looking for hours!
I love this powder. That's all I can say. I've been using it everyday and will purchase a back- up next week; in fact, it turned me into a makeup baker and it's currently my secret to a lasting, smooth, perfect- looking soft matte base. In Filipino term, it's plakado!
