Temptalia Asks You


If you could create any lip color, what would it be and what would you call it? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerA pink-leaning coral with fine coral, gold, and copper pearl with a luminous sheen–not quite glossy but glossier than a satin. (A Guerlain Gems but perfected.) I’d call it Sundazzled! (That’s all I got right now… it’s early.)

Thanks to Rosemary for today’s question! Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.

Becca Mineral Blushes
(Click to Enlarge)

Here are eight shades of Becca Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) that I bought when I spotted them on Sephora this past week. There is a ninth blush, Damselfly that has been out forever, but it is out of stock and I’m not certain when or if it will be coming back into stock… which I’ve apparently reviewed before (in 2012), so I’ll try to see if I still have it and redo swatches.

From what I can tell, the range has gone through a slight packaging and labeling update, but the ingredients don’t seem to have changed from existing shades when compared against the list I have from 2012. Nightingale, Hyacinth, and Lantana are brand new, though! I hope to review these over time, but for now, enjoy these swatches!
