Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2018
I tried Snazaroo face paint...nope. I tried Mehron body paint...close but not quite. Then I gave this one a shot and it is by far the best! It was the perfect shade I wanted for my She-Hulk cosplay. I don't have an airbrush machine but it goes on perfectly fine with a cheap makeup brush or a regular paintbrush. One or two coats was all I needed, followed it up with Mehron barrier spray once the paint dried (if you can't get the spray, baby powder works fine to set it), and I'm ready to go! It's a little up there in price than I'm used to, but for the quality I feel it is and how long it lasts, it's worth the investment. One bottle lasted me three cosplays when I painted my face, neck, shoulders, chest, forearms and hands. Maybe it's because I'm kind of a short gal...

A few tips:

1) ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use makeup primer on every part of yourself you plan to paint. Just like when you apply regular makeup, primer creates a protective layer between your skin and the paint. Plus, it makes it a bit easier to get off later.

2) Use just one solid, even coat on the face to prevent tightness and to emote without peeling or cracking.

3) I used two coats on the hands (front and back) while flexing your fingers so the paint is in all the creases. The barrier spray I mentioned helps prevent paint transfer. I was able to touch merchandise, my phone, eat chips, all kinds of things without it coming off!

4) When using paintbrushes or makeup brushes, get inexpensive ones (e.l.f. for example) because the paint will not fully wash out. Wash them the best you can and you can still reuse them for future paint jobs. Save yourself a few bucks.

5) For the removal process, use a big, disposable exfoliating pad (you'll thank me for that later) to gently scrub it off with bar soap. I used the complimentary hotel bar soap when I found liquid body wash just wasn't cutting it and took waaaay too long to get off.

PROS:
--long lasting
--light feel and barely noticeable (especially on the face)
--soft to the touch
--durable in terms of movement and facial movement without cracking or peeling
--stands up to sweat and Florida heat

CONS:
--stings when applied near the eyes. But don't worry, that goes away as it dries
--takes a while to wash off. My bath water looked like pea soup...

For me, this is the best body paint I've found that does everything I need it to. A lot of Halloween fans, convention goers, even other cosplayers have asked me about the paint I used. I highly recommend ProAiir, provided you take precautions and do your research before committing to it. Hopefully my personal experience using it shines some light for anyone else interested in body painting. Happy painting! ^_^
