TEMPTU AIR pod Blush & Highlighter Review & Swatches

TEMPTU AIR pod™ Blush in #403 Washed Rose ($30)

I figured if I was going to give the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System (review HERE) a shot, I might as well try everything including the blush and highlighter pods in order to properly assuage my curiosity. I picked up Washed Rose thinking that it would give me a nice bright pink flush (it’s described as petal pink) but sadly I was a little disappointed with the shade.


Don’t get me wrong it’s a very nice shade of subtle, soft pink, I was just expecting a brighter more vibrant pink – I probably should’ve gone with 404 Sheer Berry. The blushes themselves are really easy to use – you just load them in place of the foundation pod on your device and spray away. You can actually feel where the blush is going thanks to the strong air flow (you should set your device on “Less” for this) and of course color is buildable.

I’m hoping that TEMPTU will release a few more fun/dramatic shades in the future. The AIR pod Blush was wonderful for the convenience factor and for sheer, very very natural flush but I Just happen to prefer my powder blushes to this one.

TEMPTU AIR pod™ Highlighter in 301 Champagne ($35)

I generally don’t wear highlighter but again decided to try this for the sake of experimentation and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful subtle glow I could achieve using TEMPTU’s highlighter pod.



Champagne is a sheer metallic golden nude shade that’s perfect for highlighting your cheekbones and browbones. I like to lightly sweep this in a C motion around the sides of my face to contour along my cheekbones and right along the browbone for some barely there shimmer and glow, but you can definitely build more shimmer.

Some of your had expressed concerns that this might be way too metallic after having seen the model in the TEMPTU video on Sephora’s site applying this to herself, but I believe that she was using a pretty heavy hand in order to get anything to show up on camera, and it really won’t look that frighteningly metallic on you!

I love that TEMPTU has these accessories available for us to use with our TEMPTU AIRbrush Systems – when you spend a significant chunk of change on a product, it’s always nice to have some flexibility and options!
