I meant to take these photos ages ago, because I finally organized everything back in March, but alas, time is precious and I wasn’t able to find a chunk of time until this afternoon!  This post contains photos and brief descriptions of my non-MAC beauty products.

Just an aside–I just sifted through and donated 52 pounds of beauty products to friends, family, and my local battered women’s shelter (none of which is pictured here).  I definitely urge you to give to your local shelters whenever you have new or unused personal care products!

Check out all of the photos… Continue reading →

Do you wear different makeup when you go shopping? I’m a power shopper, to be honest.  I generally hop to the mall to check out new MAC collections these days, but when I get the urge to go shopping for things like clothes, I am a super shopper.  I hit the stores that I know work for me (and my budget), which are stores like H&M, Forever 21, and Express.  Today, I probably went through $200 or so in two hours in three stores (the ones I mentioned), and I actually tried everything on in-store.

I hate trying things on in-store, but whenever I do, I have to wear neutral makeup.  I think it might result from the fact that I prefer to match my makeup to my clothes, so if I’m rockin’ bright blue eyeshadow, when I view myself in a red shirt, it looks sooo off.  I needed a break from dogsitting the two beasts, which meant a nice detour to the mall.  I planned (or thought) ahead, so I just went with a minimal face of foundation and nothing else.  And I came out with plenty of new summer clothes!

What about you? Do you wear different makeup when you go shopping?  Does it even matter to you?

It’s such a quirk, so I thought I would share. :)  By the by, Express is having a fab sale on all that is summer–tanks, camis, shorts, etc.!

Temptalia Asks You


Do you prefer gloss alone or over lipstick? Are you all about sheer, glossy lips? Super opaque glossy lips? Need lipstick before you get your gloss on?

If you were using MAC’s Ricepaper 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 Ricepaper! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Temptalia Asks You


How do you choose what colors to use for your eyes? Do you get inspired by flowers? Match to your clothes? An accessory?

Temptalia Asks You


Do you keep track of your purchases at all? Spreadsheet? Receipts? Is it all in your head?
