Temptalia Asks You


If you could put together a brush set, what would you include? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerA synthetic brush for liquid foundation, something lightly domed, moderately dense, small-to-medium in size. A medium crease brush with a more rounded edge with light density. A paddle cheek brush for blush with some spring and density and a more domed edge. A dome-shaped, small-to-medium eyeshadow brush with a few mm of thickness so it could also blend. A large pencil-style crease brush with a rounded edge.

The Hit List

What’s the Best Lip Brush that you’ve tried?

Share your pick!  And don’t forget to share why :)

Honestly, I haven’t found one that I’ve hated by any means, and it’s probably a brush I use least (since I typically apply from the bullet itself!). I look forward to seeing if there are some favorites among you guys!

Thanks to Di for today’s question!

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks
(Click to Enlarge)

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new formula that takes the Revolution formula we’ve become accustomed to and given it more of a matte finish. There will be nine shades available. I don’t have a full press release yet, but according to Wende’s Instagram, it’s a “comfy version of matte” that will release this July 8th. As soon as I have full details, I’ll be sure to post, and reviews to come as I work through testing these :)
