What other beauty sites do you visit (that aren’t blogs!)? Share your favorites!

Temptalia's Answer.

For me, I tend to just visit various retailers’ websites to see what new products they’ve listed (e.g. Nordstrom)!

If you were using MAC Of Summer eyeshadow?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include today’s look book product! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

9 Must-Have MAC Lipglasses

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.

Oyster Girl lipglass is a gorgeous, sheer pearly pink lipglass. It’s really the way the shimmer gives off a lot of pearl sheen that makes this gloss a must-have. It layers well over both light and dark lipglasses.

C-Thru lipglass is an absolute must if you love a glossy, beige-to-nude lip. It’s a creamy concoction of light, pale beige.

Underage lipglass is similar to C-Thru lipglass, only it’s a sheer, soft pink with just a touch of shimmer. If you want a little more of a fleshy, pink nude lip, opt for this!

Cultured lipglass is a semi-sheer pink with purplish tones with shimmer that reflects both pink and almost a frosty silver.

Nymphette lipglass is a shimmery, lightly pink toned gloss with golden reflection in it. It’s incredibly flattering on lips alone, or layered with a lipstick.

Twig lipstick is a creamy, semi-sheer pink with brownie-pink. It’s almost like a really deep, flesh-toned color.

Stay In Touch lipstick is a creamy, soft-sheen yellow-based brown that goes on fairly opaque, but it is wearable even for those wary of brown.

Spirit lipstick is a semi-sheer beige-based brown with just a touch of pink in it.

Temptalia Asks You

When did you first get into makeup? When did you become full fledged beauty junkie?

Temptalia's Answer.

Just after I turned 18, actually! I pretty much fell in love thereafter, so I was probably just around the same age when I became an addict!
