Temptalia Asks You

Do you let others borrow/use your makeup? Anything off-limits?

Temptalia's Answer.

I don’t let anyone borrow anything, but I don’t have anyone asking me, to be honest! I’d rather give someone something if I know they want it and will use it than say “borrow” and not get it back!

Temptalia Asks You

What sunscreen do you use? What’s the SPF?

Temptalia's Answer.

I use a ton of different ones! Right now, I’m using a tinted moisturizer that has SPF 30 in it, so that gets me through most of my sunny day.

6 Must-Have MAC Plushglasses

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Oversexed plushglass is a sheer, glossy raspberryish shade. It’s not too bright, but it isn’t a dark shade either. It’s one of the more pigmented plushglasses available, as it is deep enough in color to transfer onto lips.

Big Baby plushglass is a sheer peachy-pink shade, kind of a light pink-coral, with just a little bit of pearl shimmer. I like this one for layering over lipsticks!

Big Kiss plushglass is a light pink shade with coral undertones and subtle gold shimmer. This is always a nice color to add on top of pink and coral lipsticks for a lot of glossiness.
