8 Best At-Home DIY Beauty Gadgets
Are these DIY beauty devices better than in-salon treatments? Our readers weigh in on the best at-home gadgets for hair removal, microdermabrasion, shrinking acne and more
What it is: An at-home, professional quality airbrushing kit that comes with your choice of a foundation, blush and highlighter.
Why it's great: While readers acknowledge this is no small purchase, they also confess they're addicted to their Temptu. "I'm so glad I invested in this product! I'll never use regular foundation again," says a reader. "Even though it's really expensive, it's one of my best makeup buys ever," says another. Although it looks like a heavy product, readers say this system provides a completely natural look. "It's a second, more perfect skin," says one reader. "NO makeup line and it looks amazingly natural!" says another. Readers also say it's convenient and hygienic, as there are "no brushes to clean" and "no fear of bacterial contamination, which you may have with using sponges or brushes."
Before you buy: Readers say they go through about one makeup pod a month with daily application, although they get more out of the blush and highlighter pods. Replacement foundation pods are $45, blush pods are $30 and highlighter pods are $35. Bronzer blushes (they don't come with the starter kit) are $35.
Salon rate: A full airbrush makeup application (popular for brides) costs $85-200, but generally includes full eye makeup application, too.
