Do you rock lavender lipstick? I love the color but must admit that it’s not my favorite on me, so I tend to forget about how pretty it is until spring hits and all I hear about are pastels. Something like NARS Dominique is a really wearable way to wear lavender without it being too pastel or bright, whereas NYX Violet is a great option for almost-lavender but not a true lavender since it is brighter and has stronger purple tones to it. What are your favorite lavenders? What kind of eye/cheek do you pair with them?

  1. OCC Digitalis — a pink-lavender cream
  2. ColourPop Brills — a satiny lavender with a hint of pink
  3. NARS Dominique — a muted, lavender pink
  4. NYX Castle — a gold-shimmered lavender pink
  5. NYX Violet — a brightened, lavender purple

Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: Estee Lauder x Courreges things
  • Weekend plans: A little relaxation, maybe watch a movie, but I have a few side projects to work on!
  • Do you like to travel?: Not really! The work to leave to go on vacation makes it hard for me to want to go on vacation, and then I end up missing home and Mellan! I’d rather get a massage and go for a really nice dinner out every few weeks than a week-long vacation (as far as taking a break goes).

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)

This week’s Mellan photo…


New bow-tie!
