Temptalia Asks You

What are the best strategies for saving money on your makeup purchases? Do you go drugstore on some items? Skip areas of beauty?

Temptalia's Answer.

I try to shop my stash, if I’m jonesin’ for something new. It can help take the edge of the want to buy something else :)

5 Must-Have MAC Pink Eyeshadows

Passionate eyeshadow is a matte, bright red-pink. It’s not a true red, and it’s not a hot pink–it’s somewhere in between. It’s not always the easiest color to wear, and I definitely don’t think necessarily *everyone* should have it, but it’s a nice pop of color for anyone who will actually wear it!

Da Bling eyeshadow is a smooth, blendable medium warm-toned pink with gold shimmer. A lot of pinks tend to be cool or neutral, so it’s great to have one with a warm undertone (especially for those who have warmer complexions).

Expensive Pink eyeshadow is a peachy-pink that really makes pink way more wearable than you think. If you’re a little wary of hot pinks, bright pinks, and baby pinks–consider Expensive Pink. It has only a little bit of pink; I’d almost describe it as a dirty pink.

Hush eyeshadow is a sheer, shimmery highlighter with just a hint of pink. Hush makes a great all-over lid color in neutral looks, but it is a great way to highlight the brow bone when you are also wearing pink or purple eyeshadows. The touch of pink helps tie everything together.

Swish eyeshadow is a deeper fuchsia pink, which runs darker and has more dimension than a really bright fuchsia. It runs more fuchsia-purple than straight pink, but it can always be brightened by layering with a bright pink base, too.
