E.L.F. Royal Red Lipstick

The Scarlet Season: E.L.F. Royal Red Lipstick

E.L.F. Royal Red Lipstick ($5.00) is a deep red with a plum twist. It’s just red enough to be part of the series, yet it’s definitely not the true red we often think of when we think red lips. Not everyone loves or wants to wear true red lips all the time, so reds that deviate in various ways are always fun options to consider. The lipstick itself is scent- and taste-less, so if your nose is sensitive to scents, you may prefer these scent-less shades. E.L.F.’s Lipstick lasts about average on me (three to four hours), and it does leave a bit of a waxy feel behind once the color has faded away. This is a budget-friendly lipstick option that goes on sheer and builds into an opaque shade after a few layers. It’s hard to go wrong for $5!

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

Temptalia Asks You

Do you wear makeup when your skin is acting up? Like a breakout?  Dry patches?  (What-have-you!)

Temptalia's Answer.

I wear what I feel I need to not be totally self-conscious about it, but I do try to only wear it when I’m going out for longer than 10-15 minutes (e.g., not just the grocery store).

Temptalia Asks You

Do you do avant garde makeup looks? Beauty looks more your style?

Temptalia's Answer.

Very rarely, just because it’s not my style or fun for me!

Share Your Halloween Makeup on Temptalia!

Happy Halloween! :)  My favorite part about Halloween is the candy, but I have a bit of a sugar tooth when it comes to candy bars that needs to be indulged once or twice a year… and Halloween is a good excuse to do so!  (I love Snickers, mmm!)  If you’ve missed it, I’m not dressing up this year–in fact, I haven’t done so for ten years now–but I am dressing up my dog, which is way more entertaining!

I would love, however, to invite Temptalia readers to show off their fun Halloween makeup, because I am sure there are plenty of you going out in full costume and we’d all love to see!  (And perhaps, get a little inspiration for next year!)

How-to Submit Your Look:

  • Three (3) high quality images minimum
  • Pictures must be at least 500 pixels wide
  • You can send me the original file to edit
  • No watermarks
  • List/description of what products you used

Submit your Halloween looks to [email protected]. We’ll take submissions through November 2nd, 2009.

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s… SUPERDOG!


Where’s trouble?
