a Rafflecopter giveaway

One of my favorite palettes released this year has been Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren, and I thought it would be really fun to buy one to give away to a very lucky reader :) It was a high quality palette, but I loved how it featured bright, yet muted, colors. Almost “wearable” brights so-to-speak. Good luck!

Temptalia Asks You

Have you purchased a product after using a sample and found it to be different? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI can’t recall doing so! I have had products in palettes that perform differently than the individual/permanent version many times, though.

Temptalia Asks You

What’s your current routine for your eyebrows? Do you fill them in? Brush and go? Gel/wax? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI fill mine in using an angled brush and powder eyeshadow, then I use a spoolie brush to comb through to soften and get everything into place. I keep brow hairs in place using a gel.
