I have been a long time user of Airflash and more recently Dior Nude foundations... I love them both. Temptu blows them away though. You have more control and options with Temptu as well... don't forget the blush and highlighter! I'm sure it's personal preference, but Temptu rocks in my book!

Honestly I loved both the Dior Airflash and the Temptu. I love the DIor because it gives you flawless coverage and it is so easy to put on. I love the Temptu because it also gives you flawless coverage and it smells great but the Temptu does give you a little extra with the airbrush blush and highlighter. In the long run the temptu will come out cheaper because the foundation is cheaper and lasts longer. I use the Dior airflash for traveling.

I have used both and prefer Dior. I have some trouble spots (slight discolorations from sun damage) and tend to prefer a moderate to fuller coverage in my foundation. The Temptu simply does not give the coverage. It is a decent foundation but I think you really must have pretty flawless skin for it to look nice. Otherwise, you will find yourself mixing products (foundations or adding concealers) to achieve a desirable coverage. I've never understand the "messy application" complaint with the Dior Airflash -- I have never had any issues with this (and have been using it for 2 years). Neither foundation is messy to apply so I think it comes down to desired coverage (and cost). If sheer coverage works for you, you will likely be pleased with Temptu. If you have any need for coverage (discolorations, ruptured capillaries, acne, etc...) you will likely not find the Temptu sufficient; I would absolutely rank the Airflash higher for complete coverage.
As for costs, I am inclined to think the Airflash is cheaper. Both the Temptu and Airflash are quite pricey but because I need more coverage and Temptu requires more per unit to get the coverage, I think it ends up being more costly. Lastly, the Airflash is easier to travel with (by a long shot).

I too was hooked on Dior Airflash and used my Dior big kabuki, but hands down I love Temptu so much better!! It only feels sticky if you are putting to much on. I also us a primer, but I also did with Airflash too. But I now am hooked on temptu. I would use airflash to travel though, but only because I have so many bottles as backup, but when there gone I wont be repurchasing Dior.

I had to put a towel over my clothes using Dior. Not with this and I think this is a much more natural finish.
I use Dior's Air Flash with a kabuki brush and I love it. However, the Temptu system seemed like it would be even better so I bought it. To be honest, I am very disappointed. I found it to be sticky and despite what other people are saying, it definitely finds the tiny wrinkles in your face and settles there - especially around the eyes. I have been trying every setting with various degrees of pressure on the trigger. I have had no luck. I use a wall mounted, magnifying mirror with a circular light to make sure I can see the exact effect of everything I am putting on my face. There is no comparison between the Air Flash and Temptu. Air Flash is superior. The coverage is better, there are no creases and it minimizes those pesky wrinkles around the eyes. I find the exact opposite with Temptu. If someone else wrote what I have just written, I would have NEVER bought this product. I am staying with Air Flash. It is a wonderful foundation.
I've tried Dior Airflash and I found it too messy despite the great results. It is much easier to control the spray of the Temptu Airbrush machine and I love how I have more control over the coverage I want.
Honestly if you are happy with your product please stick to it! I purchased this and it is really not that remarkable. I will be returning it.
