I bought this in February when I went to Palm Beach. It was a replacement for Sally Hansen's original Airbrush Legs, which is an aerosol product.
The instructions on the aerosol can warn you to spray it into your hand and then spread it on your legs. Apparently first-generation users were spraying it directly onto their legs and making a hell of a mess. Let's hope they were at least in their bathrooms.
At any rate, I liked the non-aerosol aspect of version 2.0, and I definitely prefer it for travel. I can't imagine what a nightmare it would be for an aerosol can of water-resistant leg makeup to decide to explode in my suitcase.
Truth in Advertising
When I'm buying face, and in this case, body makeup, I tend to look for shade names like Ivory, Porcelain, Vanilla, or Corpse. In the case of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs 2.0, I had to settle for Light.
It's not Light. It made my legs look like Malibu Barbie's.
Instead of calling it Light/Clair, Sally Hansen would have done better by a trusting public to have named it L'Eggs Suntan Pantyhose in a Tube.
The question on everyone's mind is: How does it work?
This product is not self-tanner, but some self-tanner application tips apply. A quarter-sized blob is plenty for each leg. Start applying it in the middle of your calf, then work your way up to the knee and above, then down to the ankle and foot, applying sparingly at the knees and ankles. Use two hands and really massage it in, so you don't leave any bare spots. Then, as with self-tanner, you have to let it dry.
A Cautionary Tale
I should warn you that if you go out for Easter brunch after a night of very little sleep and drink three glasses of champagne while eating oysters on the half shell, Eggs Benedict, ham, creamed spinach, croissants, berries with whipped cream, and carrot cake, you might end up a little sleepy. If that's the case, I suggest you don't come home, climb out of your outfit, and take a nap on top of your white colverlet. Try to remember to wash the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs off your legs first.
It's water-resistant and transfer-resistant, but I suggest you keep your Oompa-Loompa colored legs away from anything light colored.
Your friends with light-colored upholstery, towels, sheets, and bedspreads will thank you.
