Maybelline Eye Studio for Spring 2010: Natural & Baked

According to WWD, it looks like Maybelline’s spring launches are going to be driven around the idea of being “natural.” Maybelline Eye Studio will include quads with “wet technology” and baked marbleized eyeshadows. I’m curious about what exactly “wet technology” means (are they like Kryolan’s Aqua Colors?) and of course, how the baked eyeshadows stack up against MAC.

What do you think? Will you be stalking the aisles for these?

Holiday Makeup Ideas, Part III

Smoky golden browns can also be the focal point of your holiday look, rather than the lips. Black eyeliner paired with a pop of gilded gold liner really brought this look together for me.

Less can definitely be more when you want to wear your favorite bright holiday red lipstick/gloss! One of my favorite ways to wear bold lips is by simply wearing a little colored liner (gold is always a go-to for me) on the lower lash line, lots of mascara, and that’s about it!

Ultra black smoky eye with an icy twist is a great way to go wintry without being subtle. The usage of both Vex and Pink Opal pigment really give it that ice princess feel and make it not just straight black.

Temptalia Asks You

What’s your weirdest beauty habit? Keep your lipglosses in the refrigerator? Never moisturize?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have to collect them all. If I like something a lot and say I buy three or four… of five or six shades, I have to own the rest.
