Temptalia Asks You


What’s your current evening skincare routine? Share yours!

Temptalia's AnswerI almost always use a cleansing oil (likely shu uemura) to remove makeup and dirt, and I’ll use Lancome Bi-Facil on a Q-Tip to remove any last bits of eyeliner along the lower lash line. I use two prescription products, a topical antibiotic (clindamycin) and Differin, followed by Origins GinZing moisturizer.

One of my favorite color to wear for spring is a softer version of plum, so I thought I would share some of my favorite more muted plum lipsticks today.

  1. Guerlain Garance — a very warm plum with a soft sheen
  2. MAC Marque — a gold-shimmered plum
  3. Estee Lauder Irresistible — a neutral-warm medium plum
  4. Tom Ford Indian Rose — a neutral pinky-plum
  5. Bite Beauty Rosewood — a lightly warm-toned plum

Temptalia Asks You


What’s your current morning skincare routine? Share yours!

Temptalia's AnswerI usually cleanse with Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser (or Kate Somerville ExfoliKate, which is about once a week), then prescription antibiotic foam (clindamycin), Tatcha Brightening Serum (I have a small sample), and finally Origins A Perfect World SPF 35 with White Tea (which has apparently been discontinued).
