Temptalia Asks You


What’s your favorite way to apply foundation? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIt’s hard for a product to be universal, and even if you ignore color, you have price, accessibility, and just plain ol’ preferences that come into play! I certainly think that there are some great, cult products that are worth checking out, but even some of the major classics (NARS Orgasm always comes to mind) have 239847234 iterations since their creation where some of the “dupes” are better.
