During the past month, Temptu Pro accepted pre-orders for a new product they were releasing into the general market. If you are a fan of makeup or things that shimmer or sparkle, you will know that this product created quite the stir of anticipation. After a month, Body Glow by Temptu Pro arrived in the mail.
Looking for a lightweight, waterbased bronzer packed with a powerful punch of sparkle or shimmer? Body Glow is the answer! In response to a Twitter tweet, Temptu Pro stated Body Glow is actually water based. This is surprising. The formula is designed for use with airbrush equipment and is available on the silicone based product section of their website. In a previous article, it was mentioned that water based airbrush products typically “melt” away with humidity, sweat, tears, and water. This author tests some products by wearing them overnight to see if they can withstand tossing, turning, rubbing, transfer, and sweat.
Temptu Pro’s Body Glow survived a hot, non air conditioned, humid night. It was surprising to awake and find the product still looked almost freshly applied. The author’s Temptu Pro foundation color is Golden Honey. To put it in perspective, the Body Glow applied almost exactly as the author’s skin tone with a slight orange tint. The appearance was a silky, satin type, sparkling finish. It made the skin look unreal as if it was smooth like silk sheets or a satin night gown.
This “unreal” look is great for special effects or a beautiful, bronze glow. A similar product is MAC Cosmetics Lustre Drops. Lustre Drops is thicker, water based, and not designed for use with airbrush equipment. It can be diluted with distilled water to push through an airbrush gun. With respect to product comparison, if you want shimmer or sparkle, either product works. If you want coverage, Body Glow is better. It is more pigmented that Lustre Drops thus allowing more opacity.
Body Glow costs $30.00 for one ounce and is a limited edition item. This product has not been tested by the author for sustainability with water, but it is highly recommended for anyone that wants to shimmer, sparkle, or, as the product indicates, glow.
