This Week: Temptalia’s Post Picks
Are these kind of weekly roundups helpful? I’m always on the fence about them, so I’d love to know if you find these of any use!
MAC’s latest summer collection will be hitting stores on Thursday, May 27th, but it should show up online around the 25th–but who knows, you may start seeing it pop up on May 24th, too. I’ll try to put a post up announcing when it’s available online to purchase once I see it’s up! Of course, my favorite part of the collection was the To the Beach Bag, mostly because I was endlessly amused by trying to fit my dog into it.
There are always so many new products coming out, but MUFE’s Aqua Creams really excited me. They’re so easy to work with, come in a variety of shades (the five I bought from Sephora *just* arrived on Saturday!), and look beautiful. AMAZING!
My funnier half finally, after months of prodding, wrote up a HILARIOUS review. He’s also been basking in the afterglow of feel of posting and the gratification of instant feedback. Anyone want to chime in and let me know how often you’d like to see him post?
Even though it’s a rather basic look, I found it really flattering and season-appropriate. I just loved the way it worked out, and I liked the way it looked on me. (Is that conceit? Hmm. I always feel weird saying things like.)
Still lovin’ Bobbi Brown’s new Lip Shines! (Check out Part 1, if you missed it!) I’m just still so amazed by how pigmented they are. The name “Lip Shines” really didn’t have me anticipating such rich and opaque shades.
Of course, all surprises should be pleasant, but the quality and texture of VS Makeup’s Perfect Lipstick lives up to the name. Creamy, opaque, and never drying. Be Mine definitely was an impressive shade, and I look forward to checking out other shades in the line-up.
Giveaways, Giveaways, Giveaways!
This week has definitely been giveaway heavy! Have you entered yet? Current giveaways include: COVERGIRL ShadowBlast Kits (U.S. only), MAC Lustre Drops, AMOREPACIFIC Moisturizers (U.S. & Canada only), MAC To the Beach Lipglasses, 16 of Avon’s Glazewears (U.S. & Canada only), MAC To the Beach Lip Pencils, MAC Shimmermoss Eyeshadow, and MAC Hipness Blush. Phew! I still have plenty o’ giveaways planned for the upcoming week, too.
Are you digging the MAC & Disney collaboration? Many moons ago, they collaborated on some Tinted Lip Conditioners, which was just slightly before I, myself, was fully addicted to the brand. There’s not much information out yet, but it’s been confirmed by MAC, and we’ll at least see four villains in the collection: Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, Evil Queen (from Snow White), and Dr. Facilier.
