We’ve always been curious about using airbrush makeup systems. Whether watching a pro, or watching a live demonstration, Liz and I have wondered whether airbrush system give a better result and how manageable such systems are. When Temptu offered us a chance to try their system, we took the chance. We opened up the Temptu Flawless Complexion Kit ($170). The company included two foundation colors (the lighter Ivory and medium Beige), Washed Rose Blush, and Champagne Highlighter.
Neither of us had any experience with airbrush systems, but the Temptu was quite easy to put together.
Basically, the air compressor (which runs from the power from the AC Adapter) pushes air through the brush’s nozzle, to give you a extremely even, controllable application. The air compressor has a hose which is stuck into the brush:
The hose connection to the brush:
Liz had things up and running in just a few minutes. The next step was to connect the Ivory foundation to the brush/nozzle by placing it into the brush device.
There was a little cap on the foundation that had to be removed, which allows the liquid foundation to flow from the pod into the brush.
The same procedure works for the blush and highlighter.
All together now.
Liz found the brush surprisingly easy to use. Se was able to control the application and color very intuitively.
This was our very first attempt. Liz used the darker Beige foundation color to contour. The highlighter and blush were a breeze.
Liz swapped out the blush and highlighter pretty easily. The final results:
Considering that this was Liz’s first try, I think the results are quite flawless. Overall, although the Temptu is used by professionals, we thought that it delivered excellent, perfected results by a non-pro. The colors were light, layerable, and delivered true airbrushed results. These units are available at Temptu’s website.
Temptu sent these products to Cafe Makeup without charge for consideration for review.
