Bronze is the New Gold – Luminess Airbrush Tan Review

Like many things in life, the things we love aren’t always the best for us – it’s true for chocolate cake, bad boys, and most of all, tanning.

Luminess AirBrush tan

The coverage and finish of airbrush tanning are SICK! Look at the flawless finish…

These days, most savvy girls won’t brave the skin-damaging risks of a traditional sun tan, either on a beach or in a tanning bed, but the Oompah-Loompah look that comes from certain sunless tanners isn’t a much more appealing prospect.

Luminess Tan System

The Luminess airbrush tan is actually a really effective remedy. The system, which comes complete with a compressor and an airbrush stylus, looks intimidating at first, but is a breeze to use and provides a totally believable (think Jessica Alba, not Lindsay Lohan) bronzed glow.

Before…..and after….the color looks totally real, n’est ce pas?

Like similar spray tans like Mystic Tan, the formula goes on in a light mist and, since there’s no need for blending, you won’t awake to telltale orange palms the next day. The tanning formula does come with a hint of color, so you can tell where the tan will develop, and since you can use the system at home, you can reapply the formula to deepen your color with just the touch of a button.

Luminess is totally odorless and dries in a flash, so you can get the “I just got back from vacation” glow with out the last minute plane ticket to Cabo.

The basic system doesn’t come cheap (it’s around $129) but there’s a 30 day trial on

And if you think about the cost of tanning versus purchasing one of these, it’s a complete no brainer.
