A reader recently asked me to do a post of what I keep my shower caddy, and I’ve been meaning to do a post like that for awhile now, so what better incentive?

To be honest, I’m currently operating using all available tub-rim space possible, rather than a shower caddy. Partially because we nixed our previous one when we moved to the new apartment, and partially because I can’t stomach $20 for a new one (and thus have been waiting to snag one at a discount store, but haven’t gotten around to it yet). But even so, I’ve never been able to cram all my shower goodies into a single caddy.

So below you will find all of the buddies I currently keep in my shower. If there’s a link, that means I’ve done a full review on the product in the past, and you can read it by clicking the link!

Temptalia Asks You


Do you color your hair? Have you in the past? What color is it now? (or what’s your natural color for those who don’t!)

Keri Hilson will being debuting her solo album this September, so she’s been increasing her guest appearances, including 106th & Park yesterday, as well TRL (which will air Wednesday). Keri Hilson appeared on Timbaland’s “The Way I Are,” and she has also written for Justin Timberlake, The Pussycat Dolls, and Britney Spears. The shot above was taken before she went on stage (obviously!), still getting some last minute preppin’ in.

MAC Cosmetics Senior Artist Romero Jennings did her makeup for her recent appearances:

  • Prep + Prime Skin
  • Moisture Blend Foundation NC42,NC43 and NW45 Matte Bronzing Powder
  • Blush in Sunbasque and Frankly Scarlet
  • Eye shadow: Saddle, Blacktied, Cream de Violet, Blacktrack Fluidline Gel Liner
  • Spice and Plum Lip Liner
  • Prep + Prime Lash Primer, Plushlash Mascara in Plushblack and Fascinating pencil
  • Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium and Dark for contouring
  • Mineralized Eye Shadow Duo in Love Connection and Two to Glow
  • Lipstick in Mellow Mood
  • Lipglass in Major Minor

Romero gives us a quick how-to for this look:

Pump up lashes top and bottom with 2 coats of prep and prime mascara. Then add one heavy winter coat of Plushlash mascara in Plushblack. I then add the #7 lashes which I cut into fine pieces and place on the top lashes! The skin was primed with Prep + Prime Skin and polished with a sheer coat of MoistureblendFoundation that is highlighted with Moisturelush Eye Cream and contoured Matte Bronzer!  Shadows were pumped up with Creme de Violet used as a liner/shadow under eye while Saddle and Black Tied shadows frames the eye!
