What is Temptu?
According to their website, "Temptu was founded in 1981, with a temporary tattoo and body art process, developed especially for the movies.  We achieved almost immediate success and acclaim for our realistic designs.  Hollywood embraced us; especially after we made it possible for the star of Martin Scorcese's "Cape Fear" to fake being covered in prison tattoos.
In 1996 we became one of the first to introduce airbrush makeup application and in 2002 we introduced our groundbreaking S/B formula to the professional market.  It's uniquely flawless finish made it an instant classic with makeup artists and beauty professionals.  Years later, with the Air Pod, we're bringing a similar, but even more refined, formula to customers."
Temptu provides the finest airbrush makeup systems, air pods and retouch makeup. You can even sport some very stylish Temptu Temporary Tattoos!  If you've been seeking flawless coverage, you've found it with Temptu!

My Review
The incredible people at Temptu sent me over a airbrush makeup machine, a box of 2 Foundation Air Pods and a box with 1 Blush Air Pod and 1 Bronzer Air Pod.  I have been intrigued with airbrush makeup ever since I discovered you could do this at home, just about a year ago.  This is one review, I've been waiting and hoping for for a very long time so I was extremely excited when it arrived in the mail!  
That night Josh and I set up my new Temptu Airbrush Makeup System and tried the Bronzer Air Pod.  I was a little worried when I saw how dark the bronzer was, but when Josh sprayed just a little on a piece of paper I saw how absolutely stunning this gold flaked,  bronze actually is!  I love how you can adjust the machine's air pressure as high or as low as you'd like.  After Josh's very short test run I grabbed it back from him and tested out the foundation and blush on myself and was amazed at how my skin looked beautiful and flawless, just like a superstar!  I am in love!
Pros: Not messy, Very easy to set up and apply, each air pod lasts 1-2 months with everyday use, you will look like a million bucks when you're done, even great for those with sensitive skin!
Cons: The system and air pods are a little expensive for those on a fixed income or budget.  But remember, Christmas is coming soon and don't forget about birthdays!
