If you don't know about Temptu, what are you even doing......
Duuuuuuude. Every now and then a brand or product comes along that shocks me. It’s not common. Most makeup brands are good, many are great, but Temptu has truly blown me awaaaaay. I had to share!!
1) TEMPTU AIRBRUSH MAKEUP
I could explain airbrush makeup, or I could let the experts do it. This is from the Temptu website:
“If you've never heard of airbrush makeup, it uses compressed air to deliver makeup with a soft-focus, even finish unlike any other makeup. It is so effective at creating the appearance of perfect skin, that it is the only choice for anyone on HD film or TV.”
People always wonder why celebs have flawless skin. Well baby, here’s a little piece of that secret. You know when it feels like your makeup is “cakey,” or it doesn’t last that long, or it just won’t blend naturally? With an airbrush application, your makeup goes on smoothly, lightly (you can layer if you want), and easily. I’ve never experienced something that made face makeup look more like your natural skin. It’s like a filter!!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
You can use the Temptu Air applicator for tons of different things. Foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighter, primer…they’ve even got some hair coloring options if your roots need a little lovin!
The makeup products come in little pods (“Airpods”) that click easily into the applicator. First you give ‘em a little shakey shakey, then you put them on the back of the Air. The Temptu Air is reusable, so you only need to purchase more Airpods when you run out. V convenient.
To actually use it, you can apply a different technique depending on what you’re going for.
Speed 1 offers Light Air that’s great for spot correction, eye detail work, etc. For that I might hold it a little closer to the skin. DON’T WORRY. It doesn’t come on super heavy. Check in between sprays to make sure it’s working, but you’ll see that you can easily layer without going overboard.
Speed 2 offers Medium Air which is great for broader foundation, blush or bronzer application. Hold it about a hand’s length away from your face. You know that awesome filter on Instagram that makes your pores disappear? This will literally do that before your eyes. #NoFilterNeeded.
Speed 3 is Full Air - cover the larger spots like your decolletage (which everyone always forgets! Drives me nuts!) or your arms even. Add that glowy highlight to your skin!
1) TEMPTU BUILT TO LASH MASCARA
So my peeps over at Temptu just launched their own mascara, and they were kind enough to add it to the June Swag Bag! If you got it last month, let me know what you think. I am low-key in love and would definitely consider it among my favorites.
It’s not like other mascaras. When you take it off, you’ll notice it’s more clumpy than liquidy. That’s because it goes on each individual lash like a tube rather than a liquid coating. This really helps to elongate and separate your lashes, and I’ve noticed more of a difference in my lashes than other mascaras.
This shit is water resistant. This shit is strengthening. This shit has argan oil, avocado oil, olive oil (as much as it might seem, it’s not edible people) and Pro-Vitamin B5 (which moisturizes and makes your lashes look thicker). I love the applicator and if you’re in the market for a pure, sleek, inky black mascara, I urge you to try it. They know what they’re doing.
Also, can I just say that the packaging is so premium and cool? It’s simple but sharp, and it makes me feel like I’m a model in a mascara commercial.

Needless to say I am a big Temptu fan and I shall continue my quest to tell everyone about them. Their website has lots of information and how-to guides for their products, which I appreciate, and I can’t wait to see what else they come out with next.
