It’s no secret that sometimes companies send bloggers things. However, the reality of the situation (at least over here at TCLB) is that it’s a rare occurrence when one of these products creates enough enthusiasm among us to actually end up on the blog. Well, that’s exactly what’s happening here today!
When I was first approached by Temptu I was extremely intrigued by the airbrush makeup system, though I was far from optimistic that I would like it. As I’ve openly discussed on the blog before my skin has given me trouble since high school! I’m prone to breakouts, yet have very dry and sensitive skin. Needless to say, I’m VERY picky about what foundations I’ll even try. So when I heard about Temptu I wasn’t sure it would give me the proper coverage, while still looking natural- which is a MUST in my book- but the machine looked like so much fun, that I had to give it a try, and I’m SO glad I did!
My biggest misconception about using Temptu was that I would look and feel like I was wearing A TON of makeup. I don’t need to look like a Kardashian hanging around the law school! (Is that an oxymoron?) I thought that if I liked the airbrush machine, I would like it when I wanted a full face of makeup for a big night out… wrong! My favorite thing about the Temptu is how quick and easy it is to just lightly spray my face with the foundation in the morning before heading out the door, no matter the occasion! Because the foundation comes out in such a light mist, the amount of coverage you achieve is completely in your control. This makes it perfect for me to spray on lightly before I run to the grocery, or take my time for a more formal, flawless, full face of makeup. Did I mention it does blush too? Amazing!
Now, how is my teenage-esque skin been handling the Temptu? I had heard rumors that airbrush makeup can clog pores and lead to breakouts, but to my surprise I’ve had the opposite experience- My skin has been clearer than ever since I started using the Temptu a few months ago! One of my favorite things about the Temptu, that I’m attributing my newly clear skin to, is the fact that you never have to actually touch your face. This might be difficult to understand if you don’t suffer from breakouts, but when your skin is broken out the last thing you want to do is rub makeup on it with your grubby fingers or dirty makeup brushes. It just feels like you’re spreading bacteria around, if not adding more- disgusting. But now, I do my foundation and blush with the Temptu, and then I take it off every evening with my Clarisonic brush (the two go together PERFECTLY!) so the new process leaves my skin virtually untouched and is more gentle than ever. Can you tell I’m obsessed with this thing? I even brought it for the makeup artists to use on me at my wedding!
