Hi Natx,

I have never used temptu. The process involved sounds quite
different from the things I have read here.

Mehru is a gel. So there is no mixing unless you have a few colors
of Mehru you want to mix and blend to come up with a new color. Used
for body art, I apply it with a very tiny brush or toothpick. I find
one coat to be sufficient to create the stains I am after. Some
people like to apply two coats. It only takes Mehru 1 to 3 minutes
to dry so that can happen very quickly.

Used as lip dye, Mehru can be applied with a sponge tip applicator
for make-up or a Q-tip. Again the colors can be used straight from
the bottle or mixed and blended. It takes a couple of minutes for
Mehru to dry on the lips. If a deeper color (or more opaque
appearing) is desired, a second coat can be applied. Once Mehru is
dry it is smudge proof, smear proof, won't rub off on clothes, cups
when kissing etc.

On the body, Mehru will pretty much stay there until you wash it
off. On the lips Mehru will take you through your day. There are
some things that are pretty counterproductive when using Mehru to
have stains on the lips all day...eating greasy foods will require a
touch up. Typical habits we have like brushing our teeth can also
remove some of the Mehru from lips...:-) So, I tend to say that
Mehru will take you through your busy day and into the night.

When your are ready to take Mehru off...soap and water should do it
after about 24 hours.

Mehru can't flake of like temptu. Mehru actually stains the skin so
once there it is put until you take it off.

Yes, it takes a certain sort of mind to go off on those
missions...LOL!!! But other people's curiosity has helped me find
out some things I probably would never have known about had they not
posed the question.

Take care.
