Temptalia Asks You

Do you ever get overwhelmed by beauty products? Or are you really savvy and never miss a beat?

Temptalia's Answer.

Of course! There are so many different types of products and brands… it’s easy for me to get lost in them!

If you don’t like a beauty product you bought, what do you do with it? Return it? Give it to a friend? Burn it?

Temptalia's Answer.

I usually pass it onto a friend, unless it was extremely disappointing, then I’ll return it.

Dynamic Duo

Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Duos ($7.99) are a great, budget-friendly way to satisfy your eyeshadow fix. Today, I thought we’d take a look at two duos:

Dynamic Duo is a mix of pale, seafoam green and a dirty brown with silver-gray frost.  Dynamic Duo works really well with the cooler weather these days, as it’s just dark enough to work with autumn tones, but it’s not so vampy that it’s too dark, either. Dynamic Duo is a very wearable duo, and I didn’t find either shade to be chalky or hard to use. Both shades were pigmented and had a frost finish.

Double Whammy is a vibrant, medium blue with a soft sheen and a bright pop of springy green with yellow undertones.  Double Whammy is one of my favorite Sonia Kashuk duos, because it is extremely pigmented, but it is also vibrant. Sometimes it can be difficult to find this kind of brightness in the drugstore, but Sonia Kashuk gives us a good answer for bright blues and greens. The blue reminds me of MAC’s Freshwater, while the green is kind of a mix of MAC’s Swimming and Juxt.

Do you like to shop with friends/family for beauty or by yourself? Share!

Temptalia's Answer.

By myself! All my friends/family are really not into beauty, so I feel like I’m wasting up their time. I prefer to go alone so I can take my time!
