Temptalia Asks You


Are there types of products you splurge on that you feel most save on? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerLip balm, body wash. I don’t think I’m necessarily extravagant on either, but I’m more mid-to-high-end on both.

Temptalia Asks You


How has your makeup collection evolved? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerAside from the obvious (that it grows exponentially), I’d like to think that it is a lot more diverse – there are a lot of different brands, price points, and types of products.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Curling Irons!

my answer: My only rant are ones without some sort of stand so it can rest on something when I’m not using it, and ones where the buttons aren’t placed right so it is too easily turned off/adjusted. My rave is they produce very pretty results!
