Temptu Summer Skin Kit: Review & Tutorial

Now you may be thinking to yourself, "why in the world are you using a sunless tanner? You are already brown and golden, right?" Well. . . think about this I am a mom who spends time outdoors with my family playing games, biking and kayaking and such. Now  when I am outdoors I do protect my skin with sunscreen, but for some reason as a result from being outdoors my body will get a gorgeous tan, but not my face? So for that reason I tend to play around with sunless tanners in order to get my face and neck to match my body.

The sunless tanner I will be sharing with you is the TEMPTU Summer Skin 3-Step AIR pod™ Tanning Collection ($110 Value) Summer Skin 3-Step AIR pod Tanning Collection, for $75. If you already own a Temptu airbrush system you can use the kit  with it.  Now what is according to Temptu:

Summer Skin 3-Step AIR pod™ Tanning Collection ($110 Value)

What it is: A three-step self-tanning kit.

What it is formulated to do:  Now their easy-to-use technology is available in a sunless tanning product that delivers perfect results.

This set contains:

  • 0.41 oz AIR pod™ Tan Prep
  • 0.41 oz AIR pod™ Face Tan
  • 0.28 oz AIR pod™ Bronzer

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

  • Parabens
  • Sulfates
  • Petrochemicals
  • Phthalates
  • GMOs – Triclosan

What else you need to know:

The TEMPTU AIR pod™ Tanning Collection is designed with naturally derived tanning agents and is enriched with antioxidant botanicals to create healthy-looking skin and the perfect tan. Note: Tanning pods differ from the TEMPTU makeup collection. These pods contain a valve plug that needs to be opened before use. Always replace the valve plug when application is complete.

The kit comes with the TEMPTU AIR pod™ Tan Prep 0.41 oz, $30. This product is enriched with fruit enzymes to refine skin's texture and create a smooth canvas perfect for self-tanning. The ingredients are Salicylic acid, Aloe, and Citrus. Secondly, the kit comes with the TEMPTU AIR pod™ Face Tan 0.41 oz, $45. The gradual fan tan contains natural and pure melanin complex to deliver natural bronze, low-level DHA emulsion for gradual build. The ingredients in this product are Pure melanin, DHA and Chamomile Oil. Lastly the kit comes with an TEMPTU AIR pod™ Highlighter 303 Bronze, $35 that delivers and all day natural bronzed complexion with a sheer gold glow and shimmer. The ingredients in this one are water, dimethicone and silicone for a long lasting wear that moisturizes throughout the day.

Now before you use any sunless tanner you will want to exfoliate your skin, I used the Clean & Clear Deep Action exfoliating scrub. By doing this step will help eliminate any uneven skin texture so you will end up with a smooth and unblotchy sunless tan. The next steps are recommend:

  1. Apply the face tan step in the same matter as the tan prep. However, after applying this step you will need to waut 10 minutes before applying your favorite serum and moisturizer.
  2. Apply the tan prep product all over your face, hairline, jawline, neck area and decolletage for a natural looking tan. After applying the tan prep wait 30 seconds before blotting off the excess and moving onto the gradual face tan step.
  3. Let your face tan absorb for 1 hour and after that hours or so you will reveal a smooth and golden tan. If you desire your tan to be darken simply repeat step 2. Otherwise you can move on to applying the bronzer or opt for makeup. In my case since my skin did tan I had to go a shade deeper in my Temptu foundation for a perfect match. So, keep that in consideration.

Pros:

  • The was very fast and easy to use
  • The texture of the product are very light.
  • The result of the tan was a natual brown looking tan.
  • The kit can be purchased at Sephora
  • You can purchase the products in the kit individualy is you run out of one item faster than the others.

Cons:

  • The price point of the Summer Skin kit is on the high end price of $75.
  • I had to pull on the product inside th pod to get the product to flow.
  • If you don't already own the The TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System you will have to splurge and additional $225 in order to use the summer skin kit.

Overall, I feel the Summer Skin kit is a great system that offers a safe way for you to achieve a beautiful sun kissed skin without having to spend hours in the sun damaging your skin and causign premature again, hyperpigmentation, or even something as serious as skin cancer. If you are looking for a sunless tanning system I would truly recommend this system is you already own the temptu system and love it like I do.

I hope that you all enjoyed this review and may you have a safe and exciting summer 🙂

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.

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.
