6 Must-Have MAC Purple Lipsticks
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.
Creme de la Femme lipstick is a pinky purple shade with gold warmth in it. It has a slight shimmer, since it is a frost finish, but not overly so.
Capricious lipstick is a plummy shade with just a touch of rose to make it interesting.
Up the Amp lipstick is a creamy, opaque purple with a bit of reddish-violet tones to it. This is a shade not for the faint of heart. It isn’t a light or lilac-y purple by any means!

How many makeup brushes do you own? Do you use them all?
I’d say around 30 or so, and I probably use 75% of them regularly. There are a few that are “special” so I only use them for certain things, e.g. lining, which I don’t do all the time.
Origins is having their Friends & Family Sale right now — save 25% through May 5th.
The Container Store’s Pandan Pencil Holder ($12.99) are neat ways to store your makeup brushes, eyeliners, and lip liners. They keep everything upright and on display for easy access. Pencil holders, in general, are excellent as brush holders. I like these woven ones for something a little more elegant. I’ve also used wire/mesh holders in the past, too, which is a more industrial/office look.
