Temptalia Asks You

Do you like holiday beauty gift sets and palettes? Why/why not? Do you feel like you save money or overspend?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like it when it feels like a brand has put thought into it. Sometimes I feel like they’re just pushed out to be snatched up for gifts/”convenience,” but they may not be stellar.

Welcome to Free For Haul Fridays!

A play on Oh No They Didn’t’s “Free For All Fridays,” every Friday is Free For Haul Fridays! Friday is a day for fun — whether you’re already off enjoying your weekend or if you just need a way to get through til the end of the work day, FFH is here for you!

Share your latest beauty hauls! Once you’ve done that… say anything you’d like. Recommend your favorite book, or tell us what you just started reading; share a great dessert recipe or a photo of your pet (which is sure to be the cutest, yeah?).

First, I’ll share mine!

My last haul was just yesterday!  I purchased the four Chanel Rouge Allure Laques I was missing (Dynastie, Imperial, Santal, and Phoenix!).  The artist helping me even said I scooped up the last Imperial & Santal!  Their stock did look quite depleted, so if you were thinking about it…!  The good news is she did confirm they are permanent! :)  After Nordstrom, I skipped over to MAC freestanding, and my favorite artist Melissa R. had my bag ready of Style Black & Dazzleglass Cremes.  One of each, please!

Now… have at it!

The Best of the Best, Volume #005

This week just FLEW by for me! What about you? I hope, good or bad, you’re excited for the weekend. :) It’s been a busy MAC-centric week with so many collections debuting in such a short span! (Don’t forget, DSquared launches on the 28th–Monday–now!)

What are your weekend plans?

My birthday’s on Monday, so I’ll be doing some celebrating with the boyfriend and family! The boy and I are actually going to one of my favorite restaurants tonight — can’t wait! :) Other than that… I gotta study for a midterm and do some dreaded homework!

Temptalia Asks You

Do you like your lipgloss sheer or pigmented? Why?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like them to be pigmented enough to show up on my lips when I wear it alone, but I don’t need it to be like a liquid lipstick.
