This is the last post in this series for Temptu.  I thought I would show the eye area with the airbrushing since it is really an area that moves more than any other part of the face.  Also, decided to use it on a mature woman "Olivia Senior" whom I bribed for this post.

After trying the consumer products, I decided to try some of the pro products.  I bought the S/B Primer, S/B Mixing Medium, Highlighter/Blush set, and S/B foundation in Sand.  I also bought another Temptu concealer wheel since my mum stole the previous one.

*Warm Beige, blush in Vintage Ruby-pink red, and highlighter in Pink Pearl-shimmery light pink are the pods that I have.  They are easily interchangeable during the makeup application process.  What may be difficult is getting used to the concept of airbrushing.  As I used this more I found myself trying to retrain my brain in what is the way to apply foundation or makeup.

I have a lot to say about Temptu and I can't do it in one post because their products intrigue me.  The more I play with their stuff, the more versatility I find in them.  Therefore, I will do a series of posts that will cover their consumer-friendly airbrush system to their pro products.  I will also give some tips and tricks which could possibly answer some questions about airbrushing on the consumer level.

I was really hesitant on buying these cream sticks by Vapour Organic Beauty because like the co-founder Eric Sakas, I have been disappointed by the performance of many organic makeup lines.  Most I have tried just feel like colored moisturizers and pretty much perform like them.  Since, I was not about to be duped by the word "organic" again, I bought these from ShopNBC because they have a great return policy.  Did I return them? NO!

Japanese pencil cases are in a category of their own.  They are well organized bags with little slots, pockets, and elastic bands to hold your pens, pencils, erasers, tape, paper, etc.  They organize everything neatly, and I often wondered why cosmetic cases were never made like these bags.  Most of the cosmetic bags that I have bought do not organize as much as they should; they just have one or two zippered sections or flaps that hold your brushes or just regular zippered sections where you just stuff everything into it.  Not really any organization because in the end you just dump everything onto the counter and often, if you are traveling, you will be missing an item because unknowingly it rolled off the bathroom counter--usually it is your most prized item too.

When my flamboyant friend commented that my lips were "oh so 2000", I knew it was time to let go of my nude lipsticks.  He was right, I had to move on and buy lipsticks that looked like lipstick and not concealer.  My lipstick buying odyssey took me to the Three Custom Colors website where I bought the Noir Sheer Lipstick and the Simply Beautiful in semi matte.
