Temptu Under Eye Concealer: The Review

Concealer. . . One of the most used makeup products used in the beauty industry. Many people are always on a hunt for concealer to cover up imperfections like breakouts, discolored skin, and the most popular under eye circles. Like many, I am always on the hunt for a concealer that will cover my imperfections like under the eye especially during allergy season. It never fails that when allergy season comes around my under eye becomes puffy, red and dark. In addition to the issues listed my fine lines underneath my eyes became more visible. So, with that said I need a concealer that will meet the needs listed.

I currently own many concealers that work very well for concealing imperfections like MAC cosmetics Studio finish, Smashbox camera ready concealer and Stila perfecting concealer, however none of them are like the concealer I am going to share with you today. The concealer I will be talking about is the TEMPTU Under Eye Concealer that is a perfect companion for those of you that already use the Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System.

The Temptu under eye concealer is unique in it one way compared to the concealers I already own. How? Well this concealer conceals and also has some amazing skincare combined with it. What is it? What's in it?

 

According To Temptu These Are the Key Benefits:

 

  • Diamond Core with Luminera Complex: A diamond Core complex that transforms UV light into photoluminescence creating a soft-focus glow effect dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration
  • Smoothing Complex: A silicone in water formulation that provides hydration and smoothing for the under eye area, blending seamlessly with the Temptu airbrush and retouch formulas
  • Antioxidants Vitamins C & E: Scavenge free radicals in the skin that destroy collagen and elastin
  • Vitamin K: Minimizes dark circles, puffiness and fine lines by combating the underlying cause of darkening in the skin
  • Arnica Extract: Reduces inflammation and redness and restores suppleness to the skin
  • Cucumber and Chamomile Extracts: Soothing, cooling and anti-inflammatory agents.

 

How to use the concealer:

  1. Of course apply your favorite skincare on freshly cleanse skin for before you apply any foundation or concealer.
  2. Use your favorite primer. If you have fine lines under the eyes it is a great idea to prime because the primer will help smooth out the fine lines and help your concealer to go on smoother
  3. Apply the Temptu Under eye concealer and use your ring finger to pat and roll the concealer on for a smooth application.
  4. Finally apply your Temptu Airbrush foundation for a flawless finish to your complexion.
  5. Then Set with Temptu Retouch Translucent powder.

 

My thoughts on this concealer? Well, I have been using this concealer for the past 3 weeks nows and  here are my findings: During the days when my allergies were bad to the point my eyes were puffy I did notice that the Temptu under eye concealer did reduce the puffiness and redness. That was a plus to me because my eyes would look terrible with my regular concealer.

The coverage was a bit light for me. If you are used to using MAC's studio finish concealer you know that you can receive full coverage from that concealer, right? With the Temptu concealer I felt it gave me a light to medium coverage, so in turn I had to apply a bit more than normal to achieve the same coverage I get from my MAC or smashbox concealer. As far as seeing any reduction in fine lines and wrinkles I don't think 3 weeks was enough time for me to see that benefit. Just being honest.

The color match was pretty good! The tan worked great for me and the dark color I had would be a great companion if I got more sun. If that were to happened I could mix the too together to get the perfect match for my summer skin tone.

As far as the wearability, I was happy to say that the product did not get cakey or crease on me throughout the day. In turn my eyes look bright and refreshed.

Overall, I have to say that the TEMPTU Under Eye Concealer is priced on the high end of concealer, $28, and if you have the concerns with fines lines, puffiness, and discoloration definitely give it a try. However, if you are needing a full coverage concealer this may not be for you and you may just need to opt for a full coverage concealer and add on your favorite eye cream for the extra skincare benefit.

This Concealer can be foundation at Sephora.com., Temptu.com and QVC.com. I was shocked when I heard that QVC carried the Temptu airbrush system! I thought that was great because now if anyone wanted to give it a try without having to shelling all of your money in one big payment QVC offers easy pays on the system.

Temptu Limited Edition Enhance Kits Blush & Highlighter Review

This review is for my fabulous beauty chameleons that love all things to do with airbrush makeup. For some time now I has been experimenting with Temptu's Airbrush Makeup System this summer and I am truly loving the experience. When I wear the airbrush makeup during this hot and humid season I am loving the fact that my face is not melting all over my clothes. That it is a definite plus for me, wouldn't you agree? If you are kind of like airbrush makeup? Temptu? Check out my previous post by clicking on either link below to find out more:

Anyway. . .I recently decided to try out Temptu's limited edition Enhance Kits that are exclusive to Sephora. Both sets features a highlighter and a blush in limited edition packaging, which I thought was so cute. I guess anything with cute packaging can make a makeup junkie go wild, huh? Anyway, both kits retails for $50 and each airpod is filled with .28 FL OZ of product. The first set I received was the TEMPTU AIR pod™ Enhance Kit Blush & Highlighter – Summer Glam ($65 Value) Summer Glam – Blushing Coral 406/ Sunset Glow 306:

 

When I saw the color in the airpod of the Blushing Coral blush my initial thought was the color will apply on the skin very bright! However, when applied on it was very light in color even with the compressor turned to more. So, my thoughts is for a brighter bolder application for medium to deep skin tones you will have to turn your compressor to the highest setting. Although, I was happy with the intensity seen in the photo above. I totally would say, that this summer glam kit can be worn other than summer months. Heck, I would be seen in the dead of winter with this color on because during that time I crave for color, so don't limited yourself. The other kit I have is the TEMPTU AIR pod™ Enhance Kit Blush & Highlighter – Summer Glow ($65 Value) Summer Glow – Vintage Ruby 405/ Pink Pearl 305:

 

Now, this kit I truly love!! For some reason I have a hard time with plum and wine colored blushes because they turn very red on me. As a result, I shy away from them. But after trying this I am back!! The Vintage Ruby Blush. . .  I will tell you will go on intense. So, you will have to turn your compressor to less. The highlighter. . . .. I love the pink pearl!! This gave my skin a beauty pink glow. I swear I wore this one almost everyday because I got so many complements on it. This color will definitely look wonderful on women of color and for lighter skin tones just again apply less to have a similar look too!

Overall what they say about these kits:

What it does: TEMPTU AIR pod™ is a revolutionary, patent-pending technology that's applied exclusively with the TEMPTU® AIRbrush Makeup System to achieve professional quality airbrush results in the convenience of your own home. Create a gorgeous and glamorous look that lasts from day to night with this set of perfectly matched AIR pod™ Blush and Highlighter shades. Achieve a dramatic summer glow by enhancing cheeks with a pop of blush that goes on sheer, and then take your complexion from dull to radiant in an instant with the shimmering highlighter. What it is:

formulated WITHOUT: – Sulfates – Phthalates

What else you need to know: This limited-edition set contains a full-size AIR pod™ Blush in Blushing Coral 406 and a full-size AIR pod™ Highlighter in Sunset Glow 306; each pod contains approximately 2 months of makeup and works with all skin types and is suitable for all skin tones. It is dermatologist approved, oil-free, and hypoallergenic—making it perfect for those with sensitive skin.

 

My thoughts overall? I think if you already own this airbrush system and are looking for blushes to add to your makeup collection definitely try it out! I love the Summer Glow collection. The color applied on without of being streaky. However, with the Summer Glam kit blush is beautiful, but it seemed to be a bit watery or streaky to me to the point I had to really apply a lot and I had even it out and use my fingers to blend as well.

What are you thoughts? Do you already own the limited edition Enhance Kits from Temptu? If so, what are you thoughts? Feel free to comment below. In the meantime stay tuned for my video review of these limited edition kits and there will also be 2 tutorials coming up using these kits with an eye shadow look as well!

Airbrush makeup as become very popular over the past decade due to its flawless results airbrushing gives to many makeup artist’s clients whether if the client is a celebrity or an everyday woman getting ready for whatever that special occasion maybe. Airbrush makeup seems to gives such a immaculate and luminous finish to the skin without feeling heavy or cakey, as a result, becoming the tool of the trade for many makeup artists around the world. Recently, Airbrush makeup has become such a buzz in the beauty industry that now many brands offer a airbrush system to women and men on the consumer side of the beauty industry now.  Airbrush makeup at a consumer level? Yes, that’s right! Anyone with the desire to have airbrush makeup can now own their personal airbrush makeup system to their personal makeup collection if desired. The Airbrush makeup system I will be sharing with you all today is by Temptu.

Who or What is Temptu?

In 2002, TEMPTU introduced its groundbreaking silicone-based formula foundation that delivered an unparalleled flawless finish and became an instant classic with makeup and beauty pros.

I remember last year when this product came out and I was dying to give it a try, but my local Sephora did not carry one at that, so I decided to hold off on it. I have always wanted to try an airbrush system just in order to see what the difference was between airbrush makeup and regular foundation. Until recently. I was kindly contacted by Temptu to complete a review of their Temptu Airbrush makeup system and you know me being a makeup enthusiast I was all over it and agreed to try it out! I mainly want to calm my curiosity and to also share it with those of you they are thinking about airbrush makeup too.

The System & Face Kit:

The  Face Kit contains a TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System plus 2 full-size AIR pod™ Foundation pods, 1 full-size AIR pod™ Blush, and 1 full-size AIR pod™ Highlighter.  The blush and highlighter pods contain approximately 2 months of makeup, and the foundation pods contain 1 month of makeup each, work with all skin types, and are suitable for all skin tones.  They’re dermatologist-approved, oil-free, and hypoallergenic — perfect for those with sensitive skin. The price of the kit is reg. $345 sale $310.

As far as picking out my foundation shade it was kind of a struggle because it is kind of hard to match your shade online. However by the luck of the stars I ended up picking a a wonderful match. The shade that I wear in the Temptu Airpod makeup is 009 Golden (My shade in MAC foundation is NC42) The foundation is available in only 12 shades so, if you are not too sure what to pick out I was totally recommend going to your local Sephora that offers the Temptu System and get color matched. On the other hand, I think it would be a great idea if Temptu offered a free foundation sample just for the sake of color matching. In addition to the foundations they also offer bronzers, highlighter, and blushes.

What I found helpful is not only did this kit come with the system and makeup, but it also included a very easy how to guide on the system and for those of us that are visual learners the kit also contained a how to DVD. The DVD was less then 10 minutes long which made it very easy for me to get started asap.

Now,  you are probably wondering is it the Temptu Airbrush makeup system easy to use? Absolutely! Almost too easy too use. After reading and watching the DVD it was very easy for me to put the system together without breaking it. (smile, I am heavy handed) When it came to applying the foundation, I liked the fact that you can adjust your coverage of your foundation through the compressor or the airbrush pen. Super easy! The flow of the makeup is smooth and as a result, you end of with a light yet flawless finish to you makeup!

My makeup look with the Temptu Airpod foundation:

I could not believe how easy it was to use this system and how little time it took me to apply this makeup. Literally it took me less than 3 minutes to apply the foundation. It took me a little while to get used to the air slightly blowing in my face, but after that I was free sailing for sure. You can achieve a light and sheer coverage or a med to full coverage with the same foundation. I think that is great depending on your lifestyle and how you would use this personally. I also liked the fact that I did not have use a foundation brush, sponge or hand to apply the foundation either. The best part is that my clothes or hairline did not get dirty from applying the makeup too! So, That was fabulous!!

Now if you are an makeup artist this would make a great system to use with your clients however, the downside is that you are unable to custom blend your foundations with this system. However, Temptu does offer a Pro version for makeup artists. If you are curious about the pro system visit Temptupro.com.

Overall,the Temptu Airbrush Makeup system is very easy to use. My thoughts? This is a luxury item like I mention before this system will cost you from $280 and up depending on the extras you add. It is expensive, but I believe it is on average with other consumer airbrush systems like Luminess air and others on the beauty market. This system is easy to travel with because of it size and even the airpod foundations  are airport friendly as well. So, for those that have been looking into using airbrush system for the personal use I would totally recommend using the Temptu airbrush makeup system. I really enjoyed using it and can not wait to show you all how to use it in a tutorial which is coming soon. In the meantime enjoy my video above about the system and how it works.

The TEMPTU Airbrush Makeup System Review

I am sure that many of you makeup savvy makeup artists and connoisseurs of makeup are just dying to get your hands the TEMPTU airbrush system that was recently launch on Sephora.com this fall.  Some of you may ask, “what is it and what does it do?” Well according to Sephora the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System is,

“The leader in professional AIRbrushing, TEMPTU is the brains (and beauty!) behind most of the A-list work you see—the picture-perfect faces on the silver screen, the immaculate high-fashion shots. Now the brand is revolutionizing everyday makeup with its TEMPTU® AIRbrush Makeup System, a personal AIRbrushing tool designed to deliver impeccable coverage on demand. The sleek system’s hand held applicator sprays with TEMPTU’s natural-finish foundation, blush, and highlighter, leaving skin looking untouched—never retouched. It’s easy and unparalleled perfection—right at your pretty little fingertips.”

The great thing about this product is that you do not have to be a industry insider to have access to this product  which is great! Now you can have the flawless airbrushed makeup like the celebrities too. Or, if you are an makeup artist you can give your clients that airbrush celebrity look as well!  With this system’s precise settings and pinpoint accuracy for makeup application it that eliminate the need for blending and finishing with cosmetic brushes.

Another benefit to this system is that the airbrushed makeup lays on the skin in an even non- blotching texture, creating the most beautiful and natural finish to the eye. Lastly, the TEMPTU system is very hygienic and clean since the tool does not come in contact with the skin. So hence the need to ever clean your foundation brushes and such. This can be a blessing to many makeup artists and everyday makeup wearers because cleaning brushes can be a chore, believe me I know.

In addition to the airbrushing system, the TEMPTU system features the AIR pod(TM) foundation. The foundation formulas in the TEMPTU AIR Pod (TM) are atomized in the AIRbrush process, creating a fine mist of makeup that lays on the surface of the skin to reveal a natural glow with any blending needed.

The system also provides the equivalent of four brushes in one- foundation, concealer, blush, and highlighter. The adjustable controls also allow you to choose the type of coverage such as light, medium or full in order to achieve the perfect finish.

Lastly, this system’s ultra light formulas contain a smoothing complex to help minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, color correcting pigments to camouflage imperfections and moisturizes to help hydrate skin.

Foundation Shades:

The system itself will cost $225 for the compressor which is a must to use with this system. The TEMPTU AIR pod™ Foundation 004 Sand is available in 12 shade which is great for light to even deeper skin tones, the cost $55. TEMPTU also have a selection of highlight pods and blushes ranging from $30-$35. If you never seen how this system works please review this video below and you will be amazed.
