Ask Temptalia Session #026

Got a question? Now’s the time to ask it!

I’m taking your questions and answering them today. You can feel free to ask any question you’d like, both beauty-related or unrelated! Some tips on asking me questions so that you can get the best answer AND quickly…

  • For color/makeup recommendations, please let me know your skin tone, if you have a brand preference, colors you love (whatever is applicable). I don’t want to recommend something that doesn’t work for your skin coloring or recommend a brand that’s more than you want to spend!
  • If you’ve tried a lot of products and are still looking for the one that works, if you could tell me products or techniques you have tried, that helps me suss out what might work! Again, I’d hate to just recommend you a product/technique you’ve tried!
  • Please, please be patient.  Each session generates between 400-600 questions.  I will answer all that are received within the session’s time limit, but it may take me a few hours to get back to you, so I only ask that you be patient with me :)
  • You can also check out last session’s summary/wrap-up, as well as our FAQ.

It is always a pleasure to answer your questions, and I hate answering your question with a follow-up question about your coloring or what brand you’d like the dupe in or what-have-you, so hopefully this will allow me to give you better answers and more efficiently, to boot! :)

Feel free to answer other readers’ questions, too! The more the merrier! Plus, your feedback really helps to round out any answer I give. It’s like a more complete worldview!

THE SESSION IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING.

Edited @ 9:13pm (PST):   The session is CLOSED.  I will answer all remaining questions I received to this point that have not been answered.

OOOH! I just convinced The Tech Guy (aka Shaun, my boyfriend) and @labrasnore (aka Mellan) to answer questions.

If you want to ask either one a question, ask away :) I don’t guarantee either of them will ever do it again, LOL! Especially that Mellan. He’s lazy.

Rimmel Eyeful Eye Glistener

Rimmel Eyeful Eye Glistener ($7.29) are great in theory, terrible in practice. I don’t usually use the word “terrible” to describe beauty products, because I don’t come across too many that merit such a negative descriptor. These are glossy pencils to give lids “vibrant, yet transparent” colour, and Rimmel says you can use it as an eyeshadow or eyeliner.
