FINAL THOUGHTS:
□ I'm in love with the Temptu Airbrush System! Airbrushing is completely new to me so I was slightly intimidated at first but I found it really easy to use. On top of that, it's a lot faster to apply compared to your basic liquid foundation because you don't have to deal with blending or buffing foundation to your skin. I have combination skin and that usually makes it difficult for me to find a foundation that's a perfect balance between my skin type. The Temptu foundation works for all skin types so I love that it doesn't dry out my skin and it doesn't accentuate the oils in my face. It also doesn't oxidize throughout the day. The foundation literally looks the same when you first applied it and it also feels really light and breathable. Other foundations feel heavy and it feels like you're wearing makeup but the Temptu airbrush makeup not only feels really natural and but also looks natural too! This airbrush system is definitely a luxury item rather than a necessity so it's definitely something to consider. But I'm positive it's an investment that you won't regret. :)
