Temptu Temporary Tattoo Review

Tattoo Yourself (Temporarily, That Is)

Fancy temporary tattoos are popping up all over the place, from Chanel's runway show to Sephora's shelves. So we figured we'd better get around to testing some high-end faux ink to see what all the fuss was about. For that very purpose, we got our hands on Temptu's new Adorn Seductive Chic Temporary Tattoo Kit ($25). To find out what we thought, just keep reading.

We didn't love all of the designs, but the abstract floral motif was pretty. They're also really easy to apply, and they look a lot more like real tats than anything you'd get in a vending machine, which makes them perfect for parties or generally looking like a "bad" girl. While walking down the street with a huge, freshly-inked neck piece, one of us even got a disapproving "tsk!" from an old person. The only downside is that they're short-lived — they last two to five days max, and you have to keep putting the setting powder on to maintain them — and they only come in black, so if you want a sweet pink and purple unicorn, you're out of luck.
