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.
