Temptu Adorn Kits: Adorned Rocker Chick Tutorial

Hey my beauty chameleons! I am so excited to share with you all my experimentation with Temptu's Adorn Kits! You are probably like, what is an adorn kit? Well, what it is a temporary tattoo that can be used on the body for those of you that want to rock a tattoo without having to commit to having one for life. The kit that I was having fun with is called TEMPTU ADORN Temporary Tattoo Kit – Tribal Chic Tribal Chic, $25.

What they say and what is does?

What it is: A kit with all you need to create fun, versatile temporary tattoos.

What it does: Make a beauty statement with TEMPTU ADORN Temporary Tattoos. Every unique tattoo is a work of art hand drawn by a TEMPTU Artisan, and the designs can be worn as single images or cut into smaller pieces and applied individually. Use your imagination and adapt the design to suit the time of day, season, audience, or mood—with no risk of regret. The cosmetic-grade ink and all-ink delivery system render clean, precise, real-looking results that can last for two to five days.

This set contains:

  • 9 x Tattoo design sheets (3 sets of 3 distinct designs)
  • 20 x Tattoo application pads
  • 0.176 oz Tattoo setting powder (0.176 oz)
  • Reusable clear bag
  • Application instructions & care card
  • What else you need to know: ADORN is waterproof, sweat-proof, splash-proof, and super long-wearing.

When I got this kit I thought is was so cool because with Halloween around the corner this a perfect way to create a rocker look with tattoos without having to get a permanent one applied. I also loved this kit because it give a person the ability to wear and elaborate design without having to be a makeup artist to create one. So, this definitely gets my stamp of approval! The kit was easy to use and easy to remove, thank God! The only reason why I said that is I was creating this look for you all and I had an appointment to go to after creating this look and I was praying that it would come off fast and easy. And, it did. However, if you want it to stay on for a few days the kit does come with a setting powder that will make it waterproof and last a little longer. LOVE it!!

With all of that said I got very creative a created this look for you all using the following products:

The Final Look & Tutorial:

 

 

I have to say, the first time around was a fail, but the second time was fabulous and fun! Overall, I am so glad that I created this look because it was so much fun and something that I would not do all the time. Plus, I also help inspires someone with a creative look that you can rock going out for Halloween or anything else that is fierce for the evening!

Urban Decay Book Of Shadows 3 Review

Hey my beauty chameleons! As you all know Urban Decay Cosmetics released their limited edition Book of Shadows 3 on their website on September 7th (labor day) at 12:00 CST. I am so glad I was close to my computer around that time because within ten minutes of my purchase the Book of Shadows 3 was sold out! Yes, I am not kidding in 10 minutes! That is crazy for a new launch for any brand. However rest assure this palette will come back at Urban Decay online and I know for sure Sephora.com and ULTA Beauty will launch this wonderful palette this Holiday season and will be in store sometime in October. So, if you did not get you hands on it this time around definitely stay tuned and check your local Sephoras and Ulta's in-store and online closer to that time.

Anyway, earlier this week I came home from work and my hubby said that there was a package waiting for me on my desk and when I got to it I saw my Urban Decay Books of Shadows 3 package. So, like any makeup junkie and place everything down and rushed to open my package. Everything was packaged very nicely from Urban Decay and I also found a sample of some cream shadows too! Here is what the Book of Shadows look like in person. It is super cute ๐Ÿ™‚

The packaging as you can see is so cute and a bit thicker than the previous book of shadows. I think that is mainly due to the fact that this beautiful book has lighting as you see in the picture above. I had to test the lighting out in the dark and it worked. hee hee ๐Ÿ™‚ Not that this is functional in anyway, I think this was made just for aesthetics, Right? The inside appears to resemble the city of NYC and all this fashion and beauty that comes along with it to me. Inside the Book of Shadows 3 you will find a mix of brights, neutrals and dark shades that will give you the variety to create some every day looks and fun after 5 looks too. This palette includes the following:

Book of Shadows 3 includes 16 shadows, two 24/7 glide liners (Zero & Ransom), and a Mini Primer Potion. Colors in order:

  • Perversion (Matte Black)
  • Uzi (White Satin with lots of Micro glitters)
  • Loaded
  • Kush (micro glitters)
  • Midnight Cowboy Rides Again**
  • Last Call**
  • Rockstar
  • Money
  • Haight
  • Maui Wowie**
  • Smog**
  • Bordello
  • Radium
  • Snatch (micro glitters)
  • Suspect
  • Psychedelic

**Notes shadows are available and can be purchased separately.

All of the shadows are very pigmented and glide on the eye with ease of blending and that is one characteristic I love about urban decay's eye shadows. I love that there are brights to work with and neutrals because I know a lot of people would be afraid of this palette if it only contained bold colors. The only too shadows that I was not 100% in love with was Uzi and I believe snatch because of the glitter fall out, but I guess it would be full for a holiday party or Halloweens looks. The primer is always awesome and the 24/7 glide pencils I love because both are waterproof and can also be used as a shadow base too. A shadow base? Yes, if you are wanting to create a bold look on this eye area. Here is a closer look of the palette and swatches:

Like I said before the shadows are beautiful. Now is this worth purchasing? Well, if were not able to get your hands on the book of Shadows volume 1 or 2 this would definitely be a great palette to go for. Now, if you own the prequels to these if it worth the purchase? Yes and no. I do own the prequels and I have to say that there were only a few repeats and I will explain this in this video below:

Overall, if you are a collector of these palettes definitely check this beautiful Book of Shadows. I think this again would be a great gift for a fellow makeup junkie or Christmas gift for someone that has been trying to get this for some time. Questions for you? Did you get this palette? What are your thoughts? Was it worth it to you? Please share. Also is you would like to see a certain looks created  with this palette please post your ideas below because you all know that I will be creating some tutorials on my youtube channel for sure.

Anyway, stay tuned, for all of my youtube subbies there will be an official youtube video review coming up for this palette too. In the meantime have a fabulous day and I will chat with you soon ๐Ÿ™‚
