MAC x Brooke Shields Gravitas Eyeshadow Palette
MAC x Brooke Shields Gravitas Eyeshadow Palette

Just received my order earlier this afternoon, so I’m still in the process of working through the eyeshadows for wear, but I hope you’ll enjoy this quick look featuring a couple of photos and lots of swatches. The MAC x Brooke Shields Gravitas Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.68 oz.) was quick to sell out on launch day, but the collection will also launch at other retailers like Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s. I”ll have a full review, photos, swatches, thoughts, etc. soon, so sit tight and hold any questions for that post! I appreciate it :)

See more photos & swatches! Continue reading →

Temptalia Asks You


What products have have helped your skin the most? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerPrescriptions for Differin and a topical antibiotic (clindamycin) completely changed the health of my skin for the better. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (and other anti-acne products) are great for spot treatments. Sunscreen in general!

The Hit List

What’s the Best Brush for Contouring that you’ve tried?

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

I love Hakuhodo’s J5521 or J511, as well as MAC 168, which is a classic! All three work well for me. (You can read about them here in my brush must-haves post!)

Temptalia Asks You


What’s the best hair care advice you’ve received? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIt’s basic, but minimizing heat or using heat protectant when you do use heat. I didn’t grow up with any friends or family who were super into hair care, so I never knew these things!
