Luminess Air - SCAM - SCAM - SCAM. Blatantly misleading pricing!

I saw the tv ad that showed pricing to be $29.95.Upon receipt of product I read the packing list and found that they were going to require 5 monthly payments of $69.99 plus payments every month of $39.95 plus S&H for foundation!!!

I was never advised of the payment schedule when I called the company to order the product. I was offered the choice of ordering more foundation but turned it down. I had also gone on their website to see if the offer was a valid one and it was also posted on their website at $29.95.

I would never order makeup that would cost me $450 plus additional future payments for the foundation.Returned product same day!

It says right on the Comercial "after 30 days you will have 5 payments of 69.99 charged to your credit card on file!" Pay attention people!

If you go to website, you'll see that a price is not nailed down. Many products use same sneaky tactics

I ordered this system from a tv shopping channel a couple of years ago, plus I went on line and ordered extra make-up. I was somewhat satisfied at first while I was getting used to using it correctly. Before I was proficient in using this product the machine fell apart(the sprayer). I had already had it past the 30 days return policy so I couldn't send it back. Unlike some of the people on here I only paid $145.00 for the original order which I now feel was outragous considering I only got to use it for a little over a month. Such a shame that people are getting ripped off like this. I don't blame the shopping channel as they have been terrific when something has been returned for a full refund.

That is what you call false advertising! I also watched the infomercial and I found it to be very misleading. That's the problem with all of the products that you see advertised on television they always say it's a trial and they don't put the full purchase amount of the product, at least not until you've given them you're credit card number. I can't believe that companies can get away with this. I mean who really can afford to spend $450.00 just for the first purchase then a monthly fee on top of that! Luminess I think you need to rethink you're pricing strategy on this item. The cost of you're products are just outrageous!!!

I almost ordered the product, too. I'm glad that a quick internet search revealed the scam. Several unhappy customers went on to say that their card continued to be billed even after the company agreed to cancel their order. You might want to call your bank and ask for a new card number. I keep a prepaid Visa that I got at Walgreens for anything that's remotely suspicious. If it turns out to be a scam, I make sure that there's no money on the card or I go get a new one. It may cost a few bucks, but it is worth the peace of mind. Good luck!

This is terrible. No one should have to sort through terms and conditions to find the true price of makeup. Enjoy having a job while Luminess is still around.

All you need to do is call your CC company & tell them you're disputing the charges & explain why. They will disallow anymore charges & will credit any previous charges you didn't fully authorize. Since this company is another fast scammer that deals in deceit they won't dispute on their end, thereby you win by default. Then STOP BUYING *** OFF TV!! They ALWAYS screw ya! Bastards.....
