My Review: Temptu

The awesome ladies at Temptu sent me their airbrushing kit to test out and see what I thought. I had it sitting in the box for a few weeks my life has been so crazy busy and I was worried it would take a couple of hours to watch the DVD and figure the machine out. Well this week it was time to send back the Temptu kit so I knuckled down and found some time to check out the airbrushing kit.  I wish I would have opened it sooner! I have no professional makeup experience and have just slowly worked on my skills over the years and they are still light years behind a lot of my makeup loving friends. Once I tried the Temptu I found out it really is easy enough for ANYONE to use. The informative DVD is just a few minutes long and shows you how to set up the pods and apply the makeup. Within 10 minutes of opening the box I was well into applying my makeup and shocked how easy it was.The airbrush system itself is easy to handle the applicator is the size of a large pen and you hold it as such moving in slow circles to apply. The dial on the machine makes it super easy to adjust the amount you are applying to get the perfect look. When you are ready to change from foundation to blush or highlighter you just snap out one pod and snap in the next. The machine is so user friendly I felt completely comfortable using it within the first 10 minutes.As for the makeup itself I liked that I could start with a really light amount and work darker. The actual foundation smelled good to me and with the airbush it went on so light and refreshing. When I was done applying it felt like I had just moisturized my face not made it up. One of my favorite things on top of how light the product is was the coverage. It really helped even out my skin tone and minimize my flaws but you could still see my skin. My one issue with a lot of coverage products you end up not seeing your real skin you just see the makeup and your face looks fake. The Temptu helped minimize my skins flaws while still letting the beauty of my natural skin shine through. This is a great machine now it’s on the higher priced side but I think its a great value for the money. Something worth saving for or maybe asking Santa for Christmas?!?! So I tried to capture a good before and after to show you how great the machine is. It was really hard to get a clear picture of the improvements, I think its time to upgrade my old school digital camera. Hopefully you can get a glimpse of how the Temptu helps even out your skin and get your picture ready. The after doesn’t do the machine justice it just made my skin look really clear and helped even out the spots and discolorations.temptu-before.JPGtemptu-after.JPGairbrush1.jpg Temptu AIRbrush systemNo Brushes NeededThanks to the TEMPTU® AIRbrush Makeup Systems’ control settings and pinpoint accuracy, a complete flawless face can be achieved with very little AIRbrush makeup and zero need for blending brushes.Professional Grade ControlThe TEMPTU® AIRbrush Trigger is designed for precise, mess-proof application and features an adjustable pressure dial to control the amount of makeup being released.Natural FinishAIRbrushed makeup lays on the skin in an even, misted pattern, creating the most natural finish to the naked eye that’s virtually invisible on the digital screen.Extremely Hygienic and CleanNo tools come into contact with the skin when using the TEMPTU® AIRbrush Makeup System—only the spray of the makeup—so there’s no need to clean dirty brushes.new . only at sephora TEMPTU® AIRbrush Makeup System, $225airpod1.jpgAIR pod™ foundationPerfectly Blended ApplicationThe foundation formulas in the TEMPTU AIR pod™ are atomized in the AIRbrush process, creating a fine mist of makeup that lays on the surface of the skin to reveal a natural glow—no blending necessary.Four Brushes In OneThe newly designed TEMPTU® AIRbrush and TEMPTU AIR pod™ provides the equivalent of four brushes in one—foundation, concealer, blush, and highlighter.

Dita Von Teese, joins the likes of Nicole Richie in her love of Quelques Fleurs perfume.  Recently Dita was asked via her Twitter what her favorite perfume was, and she replied “Quelques Fleurs, for years now”.

Quelques Fleurs by Houbigant perfume was launched by the design house of Houbigant in 1912—and it is a true classic that has endured the test of time. The blend of soft, sensual florals uses more than 250 different raw materials and more than 15,000 flowers to create just one ounce of Quelques Fleurs eau de parfum. To this day it is still produced in Grasse, France, where Jean Francois Houbigant first created his perfumes in 1775. The succulent scent wrapped in a theme of sculptured petals in a frosted and clear French glass.

Bath and Body Works and LeSportsac Team Up!

lesportsac-1-11-30-09.jpg

I love Bath & Body Works Pocketbac Gels there are so many fun scents and for only $1.50 I can afford to stock up and stash them everywhere. With all the nasty germs going around this year I have stored one of these little bottles in our cars, my purse,  gym bag  and all around the house.

The warm vanilla sugar scent is delicious and perfect for the season. If you are looking for stocking stuffers these make the perfect little gift. My daughter loves the Sweat Pea and keeps it with her school stuff bag.

For a limited time, LeSportsac is offering its iconic collection of bags with Bath & Body Works PocketBac waterless hand gel, providing a stylish way to keep hands healthy. This season, trade in the typical clinical hand sanitizer for Bath & Body Works’ equally effective alternatives in fashion-forward scents. Paired with matching LeSportsac bags, the colorful formulas kill 99.9% of germs, offering clinical strength without the clinical scent.

The pocket-sized bottle contains natural ingredients and powerful germ killers that get hands clean without water (or the alcohol scent), anywhere, anytime. From November 16th to December 24th, stop by LeSportsac stores or log on to lesportsac.com to snag the bags plus a PocketBac waterless hand gel and a bounceback card good toward your next Bath & Body Works purchase—a savvy solution to winter germs.
