Temptalia Asks You

When you find a holy grail product, do you stop the search? Or do you always keep an eye out?

Temptalia's AnswerIf it is TRULY holy grail, then I no longer actively search, but if it’s just really, really good and my current favorite, I might keep looking!

Temptalia Asks You

Have you ever depotted makeup? How did it go? Do you love how it turned out or regret it?

Temptalia's AnswerI haven’t in a long time! Last time I did, I used the oven method on a bunch of MAC eyeshadows. I do prefer everything to be deported for eyes/cheeks. I don’t like lipstick de-tubed though.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Urban Decay!

my answer: I’m a huge fan of their lipstick and eyeshadow ranges, and I love that they have a pretty good variety of colors to choose from. I’d love to see their lipstick range offer more finishes and more cool-toned shades, though. And one day, I’d love for them to take the buttery, dense formula of their eyeshadows and apply it to blush! They need standalone blushes/highlighters! I don’t like their build-your-own-palette system at all and think it was a huge miss.
