Temptalia Asks You


Are there any beauty tools that you never use? Ones you own or ones you’ve looked at and thought, “I’d never use that!”

Thanks to reader Mimi for today’s question idea Do you have a question idea? Submit yours here.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Dry Shampoos!

my answer: The SMELL! They’re often SO strong and cloying that it makes it hard for me to use them. I love that they extend time between a wash if you don’t have time/are lazy.

NYX Coconut Lippie
NYX Macaron Lippie

NYX Coconut Macaron Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, cool-toned white with a creamy, satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but due to the really creamy, slippery consistency, it didn’t go on as evenly as one would want. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and wasn’t drying nor hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Iced (P, $18.00) is very shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NYX Black Sesame = Macaron Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, neutral-to-warm-toned gray with a creamy, satin finish. This shade was opaque, and it applied very well with even, smooth color. The texture of the lipstick was still creamy and emollient, but it didn’t prove to make application problematic. The color wore well for five hours on me and wasn’t drying nor hydrating. I don’t have any dupes for this one!

NYX Chambord Macaron Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, dark black with neutral undertones and a glossy sheen. Despite having a high slip, very creamy texture, it applied fairly well. There was enough pigmentation that what little unevenness there was managed to to recede into the background for the most part. This shade lasted for six hours when I tested it and wasn’t drying nor hydrating. If you prefer a matte finish, you could lightly dust a matte black eyeshadow on top or translucent powder. Kat Von D Slayer (P, $21.00) is more matte, sheerer, lighter. MAC Hautecore (LE, $16.00) is very similar in color. Make Up For Ever #50 (P, $19.00) is the same in color.
